Good news for murderous dictators everywhere.

The killing of 100 000 Bosnians in a one sided war was not a “genocide”. Even the killing of 8000 at Srebrenica was not genocide, since it not ordered by the Serbian government.

This is, of course, good news. That means that a “civil war” where one side has the army and guns is fighting against another side who has deer rifles thanks to “sanctions” and they deliberately aim to kill civilians, it’s okay. No genocide here, folks, just move along.

And for those unaware of Yugoslavian history: This “war” had a lot to do with the geopolitics and tribal fueds that dates back to the Byzantine empire, and little to do with religion, since at the time the war started, only about 5% of the population of that country bothered to attend churches or mosques.
