Here's the way I see it, Joan - Belgrade is still looking to tie Kosovo's future to the Republika Srpska's, in some sort of "you take this, we get that" way, and Banja Luka is deathly concerned about having it's police be turned from partners in it's little organized crime empire into an actual police force dedicated to enforcing laws. So efforts are being made to forestall Bosnia's normalization (read integration of the two entities) by portraying non-Serb Bosnia as a jihadist haven, thus making a case for keeping the two halves separated and keeping the Republika Srpska in play as territory for future Serbian annexation.
Unfortunately for the folks looking to carry this out, the folks they need to convince know better, so this is all for naught.
Gonna be an interesting next couple of weeks in regards to Police reform and the Republika Srpska.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
On a perfectly clear summer day - Thursday, September 3, 1992 - an Italian G 222 turbo-propelled, twin-engine, nine-ton transport aircraft, with a five-ton shipment of blankets intended for Sarajevo has been shoot down north of city of Konjic.
Four crew (Italians) and four passengers (French citizens) on board were killed.
When American reconnaissance and rescue helicopters from the Iwo Jima tried to land, they came under small arms fire and an infra-red homing missile was fired from the ground.
France called this an "act of terrorism, US Department of State said they will wait for the final results of UNPROFOR and the Italian investigations.
We did not see results of this investigation, didnt we? Reason - according to Italian media investigation found out that unfortunate plane has been brought down deep in Croat-Muslim held territory by a Stinger. That Stinger was sent to Afghanistan mujahedin by international community and they sent it (and volunteers) to their brethren in muslim Bosnia.
