Dear Log,

«Milosevic's prosecutors in the Hague have a completely different view of the world. They believe, some of them zealously, in a system of justice that does not recognise national borders. Universalism is their currency. An international criminal court should serve to spread the gospel of universal human rights. How this international justice is to be enforced in a world of sovereign states is a problem. Who is caught and who never will be is often a matter of political expediency.

Still, when I put these issues to some of the prosecutors at the Hague, they spoke of a future world where people would be converted to the virtues of universal values. Virtues and values are key words in their vocabulary. If there is more than a hint of Hitler in Milosevic, his prosecutors tend to sound like missionaries.»
