["For all the work the Serbs have put in..., their actions in Bosnia,...STOP RIGHT HERE"]
Hoplite: Why don't you just cut through all the manure and stop being so nice and really come out and say what you mean?
That is, why not just say that we Serbs are (were) nothing more than the Waffen Schutzstaffel carrying out the orders of someone akin to Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler.
Is this not what you're really trying to say? You recently stood by and tacitly cheer-leaded this paradigm. But, of course, you can correct me if I'm wrong (sigh).

As to the Serbs being the nearest thing to decent, rational people in the Balkans, that may have held true under Tito, but under Milosevic they turned into either bystanders or active participants in the biggest bloodletting in European history since the 1940's, and are now engaged in the biggest mass denial since Germans decided that none of them were ever members of the Nazi Party - it's strange how the Serbs, victimized as they were during the 1940's, chose to emulate their antagonists from that era, complete with sonderkommando and concentration camps, albeit on a necessarily smaller scale.
What a novel idea.
I'm ashamed I didn't think of it years ago.
