BRUSSELS, April 20 (UPI) -- A new report by U.S. and Croatian intelligence warns that Bosnia risks becoming a hot spot for Islamist recruiters plotting terrorist attacks in Europe.
The young Balkan state is rapidly becoming a breeding ground for Muslim terrorists -- a development fueled by high unemployment rates among the young Muslim population, the report states. This group is particular interesting to terrorist recruiters because of their Slavic blood, which makes it hard to distinguish from their fellow Europeans, according to Brussels-based news site EUObserver.com.
"People who are born here and live here have an advantage which would make their job easier. By their appearance, they are less obvious," says the document.
Radical Islamists have been operating in the area for more than 15 years. Thousands of foreign mujahadeen warriors fought on the Muslim side of the trenches in the 1992-1995 Balkan wars and after the cease-fire some 500 radicals remained in the country. However, the study suggests that terrorist recruitment got a major boost after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.
In October, a joint Danish-Bosnian police operation cracked down on a Sarajevo-based international terrorist network that was planning a suicide attack against a Western embassy in the Bosnian capital. Two Bosnians and several EU-citizens have been indicted.
I take it you're looking for something more than "Because a Democrat was President and they can do no wrong?"
His ideas about the Muslim threat may have been correct, but Slobo was a Communist and they get pretty much everything wrong.
He sure as hell blew the PR/Diplomatic aspects of it all.
No that explains it.... I've the light and the truth.... I will now will mend my way and go off to to join the "Witch in the Ditch" Cindy ;>
What are you talking about?
Where should I begin to point out your errors?
1) First of all, it was US intervention that helped set the stage for the war, after the Dayton accords were signed by all three factions Alija Izetbegovic reneged at the urging of Warren Zimmerman telling Izetbegovic that the US would back the BiH Msulims if he did. He basically told him if he didn't like the deal not to sign it.
2) Neither the Croatians nor the BiH Muslims were in the position to be overrunning anybody, it was precisely US intervention that concocted that bastardized alliance that the Croatians did not want to be a part of in the first place. The US forced Croatia's hand and told them if they didn't ally themselves with BiH government's efforts, they would apply sanctions and bomb them.
3) It was with US assitance that the Croatians were able to expell and cleanse Krajina of 250,000 Serbs.
The Serbs would have won hands down, in fact, the Croatians and the Serbs assisted one another against Muslims at some points during the war. Also in fact, at the beginning of war the Serbs were allied with Fikert Abdic, the rightfully elected Muslim leader of Bosnia who was forced out by Izetbegovic. Abdic was targeted by Izetbegovic, muslims fighting muslims.
I don't know where you were when this was all happening but you were definatley not on this planet. You are so off base, in fact, that it should be considered almost comical, you apparently really have no clue about what happened in Bosnia.
The bosnian govt allows and even encourages the Saudis to apy BIG bucks to families who send their young boys to their "schools" to be taught the koran the SAUDIS WAY.
And, BOSNIANS in the USA still say it was the JEWS who commItted 9/11... ask some of the folks on FR who actually heard them say those things.
Bosnians are MUSLIMS period... and you know what... IF THEY HAD TO FIGHT CHRISTIANS TO THE DEATH THEY SURE WOULD AND DID... BOSNIANS ARE EVIL ISLAMICS.
THERE ARE NO MODERATE MUSLIMS ONLY SECRET RADICALISLAMICS GETTING READY TO KILL A JEW, A HINDU OR A CHRISTIAN!!
Hey, head on over to mecca and see if they will let you kiss YOUR ROCK!!
