“As can be seen from the continual whining and carping here on FR, the Serbs aren’t happy with how things turned out, but that’s pretty much a historical thing with the Serbs, given the mismatch between their aims, rhetoric, and capabilities.”
The Serbs have long memories. When the Turks invaded, they fought heroically, while the Bosnians rolled over and joined the Caliphate. I don’t blame the Serbs for their distrust one bit, especially in light of the war we’re fighting now.
And their list of enemies reflects that - it's not just the local muslims the Serbs are perpetually pissed off at - they've got beefs with the non-Muslim Albanians, the Croats, the Slovenes, the Germans, the Hungarians, the Romanians, and now, the Macedonians and the Montenegrins.
Given the Serb way, vs. that chosen by, say, the French and Germans, the Serbs are more victims of their long memories than anything else.
