Sorry man, I'm not going to back the Serbs simply because they fought Muslims. I know that rationale works with a lot of people but not me.

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?

The problem of that is the history of Alija, the regime leaders he brought in had fundamentalist backgrounds and Alija refused to guarantee equality to the Serbs and Croatians.

"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:
