I can call anything a well-known fact. It doesn't mean anything. Do you have some evidence for this?
Why is it then that in the Popovic trial the court found (on the basis of forensic evidence) that the number of people executed was between 5,300 and 7,900?
Genuine question, if that number is wrong then I want to know why.
For sure there has been plenty of lying and confusion on all sides, but let's get real. The numbers are pretty variable but I have never seen a credible source suggest that the number of Bosnian victims is anywhere near as low as 5,000-10,000. If we're going to have a discussion at least be realistic about it.
Only that their names appeared on the rosters of the Bosnian Muslim army and thus could not be included in the recent body count as civilians. Several thousand Srebrenica "civilians" were on the official rosters and thus counted as military. They even had protests about this - about not being counted as civilians.
What court made the finding and what was their reasoning? I don't have time or interest to read their transcripts, that's your job.
Let's get real: I have not seen evidence that more than 35,000 Muslim civilians were killed. I have not seen evidence regarding: 1.) who killed them (mostly by Serb forces, I'm sure, but many clearly were not); 2.) how and where were they killed (a mortar shell? bombing and crossfire? or taken prisoner, lined up and executed?).
As such, I don't know how many people were mowed down with machine guns in what could be termed conventional genocide. I would wager that the number is much smaller than has been claimed and probably is in the range of 10,000 or so, perhaps less. Horrific, yes. Genocide, absolutely not. But whatever the case may be, it has no place being mentioned alongside horrors like Auschwitz...or Jasenovac, for that matter.
I also find it curious that despite the fact that you were allegedly aware of Sijekovac (highly doubtful, but be that as it may), you are not at all puzzled by the fact that it was never taken up as a case by the ICTY or any local tribunal. How can we explain that the first atrocity of a war, in which dozens of innocent people were murdered, is not prosecuted at all? What does that tell us about the credibility of the ICTY? In my view, it is very telling.
