1995 in Bosnia's small town Srebrenica over 8000 people were murdered and today my optimism for a more peaceful world is not particularly overwhelming.
We are constantly creating a 'new' Srebrenica, - already forgotten: yesterday, Mosul was supposedly 'liberated'. Anyone who has followed the situation knows the first thing that is growing in the ruins of Srebrenica, Raqqua, Falujah, Mosul, Gaza, and so on is more madness. They are deserts of rubble and we are creating more and more Mosuls. Everyday, now in Jemen, in Sudan, in Gaza. And always with weapons sold to Regimes led by leaders and individuals we would send to prison in our so called civilised world.
We celebrate "moderate" rebels in Syria and at the same time in Hamburg, the “left" are lumped as terrorists and criminals, while even conservative diplomats like Ischinger this morning in an interview did not got tiered to clearly speak of right- and left-wing terrorists.
How, then, can rebels be moderate, who like gangsters roam through countries and kill everyone who does not follow their madness? We are sick enough to equip them with weapons to leave it to these criminals to chase an uncomfortable leader out of office.
All of this makes us equally responsible because we are deceived by interest lobbies. So, it is a kind of an accomplice from silence. And even if someone speaks out openly, like Jan Pronk as the UN High-Repesentative, did in Sudan / Dafur 10 years ago, these people are taken out of office.
All I want is the truth to come to light: why was the crime of Srebrenica. After Holbrook and Milosevic have already faded, Sir Mike Rose remains the role of Akashi and Kofi Annan, the then responsible chief of all military UN missions. The obstruction of the Bosnian government in the reconnaissance is still a very different issue.
