Next week, former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic heads to court to face an indictment for war crimes. It's Europe's most significant war crimes trial since the Nuremberg Nazi trials after World War II. Prosecutors argue Milosevic committed crimes in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo as part of a larger plan to expunge non-Serbs and create a Serbian state. Join host Neal Conan and guests for a discussion about the case against Milosevic, and the state of new democracies in the Balkans.
