...or the Muslims.
I would back the Serbs more in Bosnia if they'd done something worth backing them for!
Let us assume, for a moment, that you are a Westerner and/or that you care for the US. In that case I can tell you that you can back up Serbs or Muslim. What happens when West arms, equip and train Muslim forces we saw in Afghanistan sooner or later they will turn on you. If that is OK with you so be it. You do your work - as for Serbs Patience - Rescue".
Who started war in Bosnia:
1991 --- VOX magazine cover from October 1991 showing Bosnian Muslim soldier in Nazi SS Division Handzar stepping on decapitated heads of Serbian leaders. Caption reads: "Spremna Handzar Divizija" (The Handzar Division is ready).
The Bosnian Muslims were very secular before the war and still are today. The Afghan mujaheden, by comparison, were completely insane from day one and Reagan knew it. They were simply a force the US backed as a way of giving the Soviets their Vietnam. The legacy of that decision is positive in some ways (no more USSR) and horrible in others (more Islamic fundamentalism).
Funny that you mention a Bosnian magazine from October 1991.
At about the same time....
"You want to take Bosnia-Herzegovina down the same highway of hell and suffering that Slovenia and Croatia are travelling. Do not think that you will not lead Bosnia-Herzegovina into hell, and do not think that you will not perhaps make the Muslim people disappear, because the Muslims cannot defend themselves if there is war-How will you prevent everyone from being killed in Bosnia-Herzegovina?"
- Radovan Karadzic, October 14, 1991 (said to the Muslims at the Bosnian parliament).
So what do you think had more to do with war starting, a magazine story or an open threat of genocide?
Which is why we have the USAF do it for us.
"I would sacrifice peace for a sovereign Bosnia-Herzegovina
but for that peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina I would not sacrifice sovereignty."
Izetbegovic, February 7, 1991:
So what do you think who was preparing to start war, member of a Muslim youth organization that recruited for the Waffen SS or gentlemen who warned muslim not to take Bosnia-Herzegovina down the same highway of hell and suffering that Slovenia and Croatia are travelling.
Hint for you:
Great people of Islamic revival - http://www.youngmuslims.ca/biographies/
Muslim Brotherhood site - Alija Izetbegovic is second on the list:
In other words Izetbegovic had to choose between independence and the same Serb-dominated Yugoslavia that everyone else - Christian and Muslim alike - wanted the hell out of.
Serb-dominated? LOL! Former Yugoslavia was ANYTHING BUT Serb-dominated. Educate yourself: http://www.balkan-archive.org.yu/kosta/Geopolitics/Risto.Mostarski/Serb_dominated_YU.text
the war started quietly by the croatians against the serbs of the pakrac region of western slavonia/croatia, back in 1987/8.
