Never again?: The Lessons of Srebrenica

On the weekend, thought the world of the Srebrenica massacre, in front of a quarter of a century, and among Europe's Leaders agreed to a large extent. "Srebrenica must never be repeated", urged foreign Minister Heiko Maas. Similarly, of course, many European officials expressed the only genocide in Europe after 1945.

striking dissonant in this Never-back-choir the voice of a Bosnian: Jasmila Žbanić was born in 1974, has survived in her youth, the siege of Sarajevo. Today, she is the most well-known film Director in Bosnia. In their award-winning, often on a year long Search, game movies based on it, you deal with war and post-war in their homeland. Her latest work, which has not reached the cinemas due to corona bedinger delays is a film adaptation of the Srebrenica massacre. Žbanić says: "Make no mistake about it: If Srebrenica were to happen again now, would stir the EU, in turn, not lift a Finger."

the Director hits a sore point. Although it should not be forgotten in the debate on the genocide of Srebrenica, that it firstly, secondly and thirdly, the Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladić and his men take the blame. You have murdered. However, Nato and the EU-States had the military Power to prevent the massacre.

complaints about the inaction of the European policy

you have not done it but because the West is burning, the Serbian Murder for years, only with resolutions, Apellen and "peace conferences," answers, which were, in reality, a Spanish wall to the continuation of the war. Especially in Paris and in London, the Serbian policy of "ethnic cleansing was fostered" for a long time. But there were probably also in other main cities, forces that had no sleepless nights, as long as the murderous violence of the great-Serbian Aggression directed mainly against Muslims.

Europe Would be today capable of action, if on the continent of Europe or on its doorstep, a similar tragedy is announced? The European Union is surrounded by the lead actors and geopolitical competitors, the wars in order to achieve their political goals. Vladimir Putin's Russia and the Turkey of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as a matter of course to military means to achieve order in the Caucasus, in the Ukraine, in Syria and elsewhere, their goals. Of China's will, his interests, forcibly to impose, the world will experience perhaps even worse examples than Hong Kong. And how the EU and its member States react? Seek the Phrase that this or that conflict has no military solution. You are to bear in mind, criticizes, warns (and in some cases strongly) or sentenced (in the highest escalation level even sharply).
