    I dislike this whole process. He is getting rights that the people he executed didn't. I know this is the whole point of the new government, but come on. What else is there to prove. Get on with the execution.

    spoon_ - I agree completely, but since when do people ever get the same rights as their victims?

    These people who worry about his fair trial really ........ me off. With something like the Laci Peterson trial, I can understand there being a problem with a fair trial, but this is just ridiculous.

    The point is that there is no longer supposed to exist a dictatorship, and considering we cannot really pull our military out just yet, this is the next best thing we can possibly do to make us look just.

    And, don't worry, he will most likely be executed. We're just being 'civil' about it, doing the right thing, blah blah blah etc.

    It's just that I'd be scared to be the defense attorney of a terrorist. You know, death threats and stuff.

    Although I may just be paranoid from reading too much Grisham.

    1)Milosevic isn't French
    2)Milosevic is (was?) defending himself, and doing very well.

    There are various big-shot lawyers competing, yes, competing, to earn the right to defend him.
