Winning The Peace

What was that stuff I was hearing from the Clark campaign about how great the victory in Serbia was?

BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro (AP) - Jailed former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and another accused war criminal could become members of Serbia's parliament after their extreme nationalist allies swept weekend elections, according to results released Monday.

The Serbian Radical Party, which supported Milosevic's Balkan war campaigns, won 81 seats in Sunday's ballot for the 250-seat parliament, far more than the pro-Western parties that toppled the former Yugoslav president three years ago.

Milosevic of the Serbian Socialist Party and Vojislav Seselj of the Radical Party appeared at the top of each party's candidate list. Both men are in custody at The Hague on war crimes charges.

A stunning tribute to the power of the U.N. to affect change.

Wasn't it your boy Rumsfeld who said that (to paraphrase) democracy is a messy business?
