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.
the goings on of the Balkans is above joans head, hoplite. her rants are right up there with detros hallucinogenic theories.
try hitting zividici (sp?) about 20 min south of Doboj, a Jihad R/R haven. Maybe a trip in-country can quell many of your denials too. The Italian SF are too busy chasing down the Croatian mafia and islamic radicals. BTW - The Serbs supply SFOR with intel data in much greater quantity and quality then the croat-bih federation alliances.
