Chalk One Up for The Good Guys !!

Hearing the news yesterday that former Serbian leader Radovan Karadzic (click for the CBC story) had finally been arrested came as a delightful suprise to me.

Being a news addict, I remember the news of atrocities enacted under his leadership, and have long wondered why he hasn't been hunted down and captured ... The cynic in me wonders if there was oil under Serbian soil if the outcome might have been different ...

The upside is that unlike Saddam Hussein, Karadzic WILL face justice at The Hague, rather than a kangaroo court ... let's hope the spirits and suvivors of his victims receive a long overdue date with justice ...

I like the comment from the French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner who said - "We have waited for this for 13 years. Finally. Finally."

FINALLY indeed !!!
