Radovan Karadžić arrested

Just a short one.

Top news today is that former Bosnian Serb war leader Radovan Karadžić — wanted by the International Criminal Court in the Hague on charges of war crimes — has been arrested in Belgrade after 13 years on the run.

What use does this do? On the surface it’s a boost for Boris Tadić’s government in Serbia and a step closer to possible EU membership. Tadić can also use this to show proof that his government is actively working to arrest these men.

Well, if that’s the case, why did it take 13 years? And more importantly, where’s the war general Radko Mladić? Until General Mladić is arrested, I’d venture that nothing has changed.
