     In July of 1995 The Bosnian Serb Army under the command of Ratko Mladic carried out genocidal acts upon the Bosnina population of Srebrenica, Bosnia.  Over 7,000 Bosnian Muslims were executed and buried in a mass grave.  Srebrenica was one of six NATO safe zones where Bosnian Muslims were supposed to be protected from the Bosnian Serb Army.  NATO and the United States failed to send the necessary troops to Bosnia to prevent this genocidal act from happening. 
      After the Srebrenica Massacre NATO and the United States increased its military presence in Bosnia and forced the Bosnian Serb Army, Ratko Mladic, Radovan Karadzic, and Slobodan Miloseivc to surrender.   To this day the Srebrenica Massacre remains the most significant act of genocide in Europe since the Holocaust of World War II.
