First answer me clearly , are you pro-'RSK?' and pro Serbian Kosovo?
I think the EU makes many ridiculous demands on 'smaller peoples' including Serbs. However , EU will probably happen for the whole region at some point. From a practical standpoint we should adapt and figure out how we are best going to survive and prosper in it. From an idealistic standpoint I think Cro can do just as good or better w/out the EU , same thing with Serbia.

Josipovic? He's not even a nationalist. And we came down hard on the Albanians too over Maceodnia, we stood with the Maceodonians. From a political standpoint Kosovo makes Serbia unstable and in turn makes the region unstable. I'm not saying its right to recognize its independence but it was clear that stability is threatened with 2 million Albanians under Serbian rule.
Not all Croats sided with the Germans , you know this. The Pavelic government was a puppet regime who's strings were pulled by Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Initially people welcomed the change ( by 1941 anything was better than being trapped in effectively a Serbian kingdom for Croats.) And remember , Serbia also had a puppet regime loyal to Hitler.
I mean think about it , you live 20 years in an oppresive state and then some new power comes in and offers you your own state. Of course you're going to take that and the Allies didn't care about the fate of the Croats , they showed that in 1918. Austria was with Germany and was a traditional friend , we were decieved. Maniacs took power and Croatia was far from 'independent' as its land was auctioned to Italy and divided then with Germany. On top of that Croatians had three major factions within themselves fighting eachother and the Ustase , manpower wise , was the smallest AND 40% of it was Muslim lol.
So we can agree that the few "one's" in power are one's who benefited?
It was never about "Freedom" to Croats, or to the people, it never was. I agree we had our own internal issues during Yugo, but the internationals who got involved only took advantage of that, and the crimes that each side commited is a result of just that.
Hey no worries , bro. When some Serbs go off on this line of thinking it just makes me laugh. Are they so pathetic they have to claim 'others' because they are dissatisfied with what they already have. Surely that can't be the case can it?
That's the sad thing, he's not a Serb. This forum is hijacked by people who either are not related to Serbs, have never been to Serbia, and/or don't speak Serbian. These people seem to have the most idiotic opinions concerning the entire region.
