Everybody's best hope is to reunite under EU auspices as a part of NATO. If the Germans and the French (or the Germans and the Poles, for that matter) can get along, then the Serbs and their neighbors should be able to as well.
Cote D’Ivoire is over 3,000 miles from Uganda/Kenya/South Sudan area where the troops are actually headed.
The name Cote D’Ivoire is not a Muzzie name it is simply “Ivory Coast” in French.
Really?....You might also want to look at Judah's book: The Serbs: History, Myth & the Destruction of Yugoslavia.

It is the new in vogue name the media uses. obama did send troops there... less than 10 but they are there and 5.5 billion dollars too. Ruthless murdering regime.
