I hate to allow my politically-incorrect disgust poking through, but once in a while, seems like a little burning at the stake for a true witch might be appropriate.

Case in point:

Mladic taunts survivors at start of genocide trial
THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic made a throat-slitting gesture to a woman who lost her son, husband and brothers in the Srebenica massacre at the start of his trial on Wednesday for some of the worst atrocities in Europe since World War Two.

It seems that some people are born for this psychopathic behavior. Does anyone also see his resemblance to Newt Gigrich? Physically I mean. This is what happens when one of them rises to power, according to Sam Harris anyway.

A poster boy FOR the death penalty if this is the case. I was listening to a broadcast about him on NPR this morning. He’s refusing to even enter a plea for his upcoming trial. The theatrics should be interesting to watch.

Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of what this guy did until now. That’s one evil guy.  But I have to ask…what’s the difference between what he did and what Bush and Cheney did? (Other than the fact that Bush/Cheney’s offenses were an order of magnitude greater in number.)  Maybe there is no difference in kind and that’s why neither Bush nor Cheney can travel outside the US.

I’m about as liberal and anti-Bush administration as you can get and even I think that’s a stretch.

Yeah, he’s a brutal bastard.  I have some not so distant relatives that still live in that area; I’ve sometimes wondered how I would react if I had lived in the former Yugoslavia when all that stuff was happening.  Food for thought. long face

Yugoslavia was a bad idea. As usual, multiculturalism seems to cause more evil than good. I stayed in Yugoslavia once for two months and it was pretty evident they all hated—and I am not exaggerating—each other.

The difference is that Bush/Chaney acted out of sheer stupidity. Mladic acted out of pure malice.

So it was not a good idea of Canada to let Czechs into the country?  cool mad

Certainly, Mladic would agree!

Czechs assimilate fast. We don’t put Czech flags on our cars, there is no Czech community in Toronto that I know of, no churches, restaurants, etc. I don’t insist my kids spoke Czech nor send them to Czech schools. But nice try.  grin

Same with most Dutch. Most Dutch are even proud that they are not proud being Dutch.

But I talked Dutch with my children, so that they can speak their family in the Netherlands. For the rest they are just as Swiss as any other Swiss.

The Czech Republic was not part of Yugoslavia. Would Mladic still care?  smirk

Just out of curiosity, do any of your Swiss relatives speak Romansh? BTW I’ve lost in a previous post the list of punctuation marks you sent and how to post them. Could you post it again or do you remember where the original is? I’m having trouble with the umlauts!  Thanks in advance.

BTW, my kids do speak some Spanish. But they think of themselves as Canadians, and I would never tell them otherwise.

The other day my son was humming Dvořák’s Largo from his Ninth Symphony and I asked him if he knew who wrote it. He said he couldn’t remember. I play a lot of Dvořák at home, but I try to avoid listening to the Ninth Symphony because it makes me as nostalgic as hell and I don’t like to feel that way, except for the rare occasion. Anyway, after I told my son who and why wrote it—Dvořák being homesick while living in the U.S.—he asked me if I thought he liked it so much because he was a half Czech. I asked him what he thought and he said that he probably likes it simply because it’s beautiful and that he doesn’t really know what it would feel like to be Czech. I am not sure where I am going with this, but, anyways, just a little anecdote…
