“Farewell to the Hague fellow-fighter”

Many detainees of the ICTY signed, this time, a true obituary, to Slobodan Milosevic, the people who signed it belong to different warring factions in the Balkan conflict. One of them is the recently arrested Croatian general Ante Gotovina (He dennies having signed it arguing that he only expressed his condoleances to Milosevic's family "as a good Catholic". The obituary says, “Farewell to the Hague fellow-fighter Slobodan Milosevic”.

How is one to interpret this expression of solidarity, as a grotesque absurdity or a curiosity that could be of interests to students of prisoner psychology?
