Thanks! I was a bit hesitant at publishing with no sources, but as soon as I said that, one popped up. :) Jason Safoutin 13:09, 11 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Life in prison[edit]

Milošević did not face a life in prison. There where no solid evidence against him. The judge that was originaly the "first" judge claimed that himself and then retired (died soon). The case was started over.

I had deleted 00life in prison allready once but someone put iz beck. --Milant 20:28, 11 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

He was facing life in prison if guilty...thats was going to be his punishment Jason Safoutin 00:52, 12 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title of article[edit]

The title doesn't really make sense. I would suggest you move it to "Former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic dies", or "Former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic is found dead". -- 00:48, 12 March 2006 (UTC) and if you do, make sure to change the link on Wikipedia's page on Slobodan Milosevic -- 00:49, 12 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree. Think about how a newspaper would form a headline...this isn't how they would. 22:26, 12 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Copy violation[edit]

User:Amgine just removed some copyvio from this article originating from here. Just FYI. ironiridis 01:14, 13 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why you keep removing what I write. Why do you say it's a copy violation. That is a nonsense. I wrote it in my own words, and put a link to the source. 04:05, 13 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The second inclusion was not a copyviolation. I have restored it, as well as another quote from the New York Times, and moved the link down to the sources. I did break up your text into two paragraphs, however. - Amgine | talk en.WN 04:08, 13 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

President S. Milosevic found dead[edit]

He was charged with killing of 8,000 Muslim Men in Srebrenica, Bosnia. But numbers do not add up. The Census from 1991 shows the true figures: That place was composed of two localities. The Town and the Municipality.

   Town                            Municipality
3,682 Muslims (men and women)   27,118 Muslims (men and women)
1,669 Serbs     "   "    "       9,381 Serbs     "   "    " 
  403 Others    "   "    "         714 Others    "   "    "
5,754 Total     "   "    "      37,213 Total     "   "    "

If we divide those numbers by 2 to get only men (approximately), and only Muslims, and exclude women and military, yo can not get an accurate picture. This does not take into account those that fled outside Srebrenica. Looks like typical propaganda. Big numbers and rounded off. Town had 3682/2=1841 Muslim men. Municipality had 27118/2=13559 Muslim men. Municipality includes town residents, so after we subtract the killed we get the remainder. 13559-8000=5559 Muslim men living there, or give and take some that moved out or moved in afterward.
