Al, we're in the final stages of putting the Republika Srpska out of its misery.
So any talk of anschluss with Serbia tends to overlook the reality of the situation there.
As for the Lisbon talks, the Bosnians walked out in the Summer of '92, at least two months after the Serbs had eschewed negotiations in favor of violence to achieve their aims.
There is n o anschluss.
Bosnia, Croatia and others WERE 15 years ago ONE country with Belgrade as capital. MUssie lovers in EU and NATO stoled Christian prts of former Yugoslavia (50% of what is now called "Bosnia) and forced them into "country" with muslims.
After victory of Allies in WWI, regions of Serb Republic were liberated from Ottoman, and later austrian occupation and succeeded to Serbia.
Tito`s communist yoke, cretaed state, or better region of "Bosnia" forcing Serbs to be separated and forcing them into life with Muslims.
In WWII Muslims and Croates were nazi allies and entire "Bosnia" was annexed by Croatia Nazi state.
Communists, formed "Bosnia" state, with Serbs, Croates and Muslims lands.
Bosnian Muslims allied with Croates succeeded Bosnia from Yugoslavia, but now, that same right, is denied to Bosnian Christians, Serbs an Croates for sake of Muslims nad we have negotiations of status of Kosovo, legaly teritory of Serbia?
So , Muslim territories are Sacred Cow, and Christian lands, cannot be indipendant, or they can be cleamsed by Muslims?
Go to sleep.
Yes, their refusal to negotiate in good faith led to the war. The blame is upon them.
