"...And there's reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last..."

Pretty straightforward article about former Serb leader Karadzic on CNN.com today:

It's interesting to see how post-war sentiment in the former Yugoslavia countries keeps changing. In the age of the internet and instantaneous communication, we all hear about rallys and protests as they happen, or in this case, before they happen. One has to wonder if all of this civilian political participation happened after WWI and WWII. Of course we all hear about citizens rallying around their heroic leaders in countries that were allied with the United States, but what was it like elsewhere?

It's fascinating to me to see how countries redevelop and evolve after a war.
