The wheels of justice

Slobodan Milosevic is dead, with his trial still incomplete. Keep in mind that General Wesley Clark left the presidential campaign trail in 2004 to testify at that tiral. Milosevic allegedly committed his crimes in the 1990s.

Apparently, his death has spurred calls to begin trials for the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia...who allegedly committed their crimes in the 1970s. Reuters:
The death of Serb leader Slobodan Milosevic during his trial has heightened the need to start the long-delayed trials of aging Khmer Rouge leaders on charges of genocide, United Nations officials said on Tuesday.

"We all know that the possible accused all are aging, so we really have to start the process as soon as we can," Michelle Lee, the U.N.'s deputy director of the court administration preparing the trials.
In Iraq, 85 more bodies of "executed men" have been found in Baghdad the past few days. Sectarian violence is heating up.

These were street executions. It is happening yet again.

When will the relevant trials begin? 2010? 2020?
