If a criminal under investigation of FBI tells it that he went to lunch with you-a friend, the FBI would start sifting through your trash. They do this all the time. They’ll spend two years doing an investigation, dig up your garden, talk to all your friends, tell your boss its nothing to worry about, they just want to look in your desk for heroin / or murder evidence as the case may be, and then they stop. Nobody gets indicted, and nobody ever knows why. Of course, all your neighbors drag their kids in the house, draw the drapes, and chain their doors every time you walk by. But that’s life in a democracy!

“I am a serb. I am Croat, I am a Muslim. – of course why not. You will say - They are all animals. They have slaughtered each other for centuries. For years we have tried to live together until a war was waged on us, on all of us. A war waged by our leaders. Who supplied us the weapons that killed our sons and daughters. It was the government of the West, The same western governments, who drew the boundaries of our countries. Some times in ink, some times in blood, the blood of our people. And now you dispatch peacekeepers to write our destiny again. We can never accept this peace that leaves us with nothing but pain. Pain the peacekeepers must be made to feel, their wives, their children, their houses and churches. So now you must understand to leave us alone to find our own destiny.”Dialogue from a film ‘peacemaker’.
