Bodies found on lake's shore may be missing Bosnian Muslims

As many as 50 bodies discovered on the shores of a lake at the border of Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina may be those of Bosnian Muslims who disappeared from a nearby village in the 1990s, officials said.

The International Commission on Missing Persons and the Missing Persons Institute of Bosnia-Herzegovina discovered the bodies that are believed to be from the three-year Bosnian war that began in 1992, a spokesman for investigators said Thursday.

They were discovered along Lake Perucac, an artificial reservoir that is connected to a hydroelectric power plant. Lake water levels have been dropping as the result of recent maintenance, commission spokesman Jasmin Agovic said, and the dropping water revealed sites that have yielded bodies.

    Cetnik is an idiot. How do you explain the wars in Slovenia and Croatia? Wait, Bosnian Muslims started that war too. What an idiot.

    I am glad that Cetnik explained to us his reasons and justifications for slaughtering civilians. Let the world know that Cetnik is ready, if there is a chance to do it again.

    Serbs are the ones who started all the wars, it had nothing to do with religion. It was all about teritory, all for "greater" Serbia. Serbs are the ones who play the victim all the time, meanwhile they are the ones who betray themselves. How does it feel "Cetnik", tens of thousands of dead, cities destroyed, refugees. Do you feel pride in calling yourself a Serb?
    But, you got what you wanted, "great Serbia", SMALL and MISERABLE. Oh yeah, forget about Kosovo too.

    Muslims started the war in Bosnia by proclaiming independence of Bosnia. They started the war, they got what they deserved! Muslims killed so many Christian Serbs and even Croats in Bosnia during the war. They always end up innocent, I don't understand and If you ask for my opinion I would be the happiest person if someone buys them a one way ticket to Turkey or some other Muslim country in the middle east!

      It's because of people like you that war started in the first place. I am Muslim, have Serb friends, we get along just fine, but it's the bad apples like you "CETNIKS" that create hate between people. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    – The terror and torture of Muslims in Bosnia, Kosovo and Kuwait were ended by the proper application of the military forces(our tax dollars) of the USA and her freedom-loving friends. Radovan Karadzic was finally captured on 7/23/08 and is charged with genocide, crimes against humanity and violations of the law of war - charges related to the 1992-1995 civil war that followed Bosnia-Herzegovina's secession from Yugoslavia.

    Great post Frogist, I couldn't agree with you more. Judging a whole group based on the actions of a few only show ignorance. I truly hope that the US wakes up and realizes this before it is too late. Although I am Canadian, I think the American citizens are great people but like most other coutries the people in power in America have no idea what is going on in the World and only care about profit and power.

    This is what happens when there is no tolerance of others just because they are different. People need to understand we need to uphold the freedom of religion in this country so that this sort of thing does not occur. And we also need to be tolerant and accepting and kind on a personal level to people who are different than ourselves.
