Karadzic: the Weight of History

The commentary about the arrest of Radovan Karadzic has reminded us of the devastating significance

It's good to see something approaching a real discussion about the arrest of Karadzic on this blog rather than the usual knee-jerk position taking and name calling.

Elsewhere I've been really impressed by the quality of the journalism. Ed Vulliamy was his usual passionate self in the Guardian yesterday. His recollections of meeting Karadzic (there's something horribly creepy about his weak handshake) are a must read. Good to see Martin Bell writing in the Telegraph today too.

I also urge you to read the excellent analysis from Gregory Kent, a human rights specialist from Roehampton University on the New Statesman website.
