Example text

Belated action is the overdue offspring of virtual guilt. In August of 1995, at the instigation of the United States, NATO, with the authorization of the Security Council, began air strikes against the Bosnian Serbs. This enabled the UN peacekeeping force to eventually break the siege of Sarajevo using the appropriate rules of engagement and military weaponry. With successes by the Croats and Bosnian Muslims in other parts of the country, President Milosevic began to withdraw his military support for the genocidal action of his Bosnian Serb allies, leading to the eventual cease-fire and terms of relative peace in the Dayton Accords of November 1995.

The “tragic flaw” of humanity 27 The regional human rights system in the Americas In Central and South America, the Organization of American States succeeded in establishing the Inter-American Convention of Human Rights in November of 1969, despite the fact that the region had been a proxy battleground for the superpowers during the Cold War. 74 In 1978, the Convention entered into force. The Convention also established the Inter-American Court of Human Rights situated in Costa Rica, with the seven members of the Court sitting in their personal capacity, but elected by the General Assembly.

The cruelty of the Bosnian Serb forces who besieged Sarajevo and went on the rampage elsewhere seemed to know no bounds. The United Nations Commission of Experts report on the war crimes in Bosnia revealed horrific details of systemic rape and sexual assaults, the destruction of cultural property, and the precision of the ethnic cleansing. 85 Over 200,000 people would die in Bosnia before the Dayton Peace Accord brought the fighting to an end. The Security Council imposed economic sanctions on Serbia and an arms embargo that included Bosnia, which some have argued aided the genocide in that country.
