Cuckoo Cuckoo.

The arrest of Radovan Karadzic certainly seems to have stirred up the nutters.

The fact that it has taken 13 years to find a man who was living in a major city and writing a magazine column on alternative medicine suggests that he might just have had some assistance from the Serbian government.

Perhaps the alternative medicine will form part of his defence strategy- "No we didn't shoot them all in the head, we were simply applying a form of extreme accupuncture to release their negative chi".

Why do you just dismiss Neil Craig's rant? It seems unlikely but plausible to me.

There's several reasons, firstly the baseless claim that Milosevic was murdered.

Secondly the claim that Izetbegovic was an "openly genocidal (ex-)Nazi Moslem leader". He was plainly not openly genocidal (there is often an out of context quote in a book he wrote in the 1960s that is used to support this claim) and the evidence that he was ever a Nazi is weak to non existent, see here for example: http://oliverkamm.typepad.com/blog/2006/02/more_on_balkan_.html

I suspect that all of the more extraordinary claims are equally flimsy when looked at in any depth.

Could be, Ross.
