To: Zhang Fei
You're right Zhang Fei, the Serbs paid a terrible price in WWI, however "these men" (the assassins) and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand were USED by the Austrians and Germans as a phony pretense to attack Serbia, which they had intended to do all along, regardless of whether Gavrilo Princip had ever been born. It can be argued that the Austrians deliberately set up their own man to die in Sarajevo on June 28 (Vidovdan) for the specific purpose of having a justification to wage war against the Serbia.

They did NOT however, anticipate the scope of their folly.
