We Serbs ar not dealing drugs. Or trafficing women. Or smuggling guns.
You might not be, but some of your fellow Serbs back in the Balkans are as up into their necks in those activities as their Albanian neighbors.
There is no factual basis for any claims of Serbian exceptionalism when compared to its neighbors.

"You might not be, but some of your fellow Serbs back in the Balkans are as up into their necks in those activities as their Albanian neighbors." No country in the world is without "individual criminals". Serbia -- & the US, for that matter --are not exceptions. However, "the pervasity of criminality" in a country or an ethnic group is what is at issue. Albanians are well-known as the "drug and sex-slave dealers of Europe", while Serbs are not: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/1999/05/11/MN20212.DTL http://www.humantrafficking.com/humantrafficking/features/MSNBC_Sex_Slaves/europesexslaves5.aspx http://www.uri.edu/artsci/wms/hughes/sskos.htm The news stories on Albanians (and in many cases, specifically Kosovo Albanians) associated with the traffic of drugs and sex slaves are too numerous to ignore -- while few if any stories associate "Serbs" with those activities . So, unfortunately for you Hoplite, it is your childish tit-for-tat statement which has "no factual basis" whatever.
