This paid off for the Croats when the Serbs tried to hold on to big chunks of territory. Eventually the US and the Germans retrained the Croat military with an eye towards defeating a Warszaw Pact style force, and they kicked the Serbs' butts. Serbia is still a lot like Russia, saying the right things but there's still too many politicians who miss the days of empire. The Croats and Slovenes are solidly in our camp.
Potential allies would be most anyone who is NOT a muslim.
When it comes to Allies we will have none if push comes to shove. An’ dats a fact!
One of Americas most colossal blunders
January 8, 2012
Thank you for publishing Who are Americas allies in the Balkans?, January 4. History will show us that one of Americas most colossal blunders was made when US leaders betrayed Serbia, one of our WWI and WWII staunchest allies by supporting the whole-scale persecution, ethnic cleansing, and slaughter of Serbian Orthodox Christians and theft of their ancestral lands that they have inhabited for over 1300 years at the hands of Muslim and other fascist extremists.
Many American leaders say publicly that they support freedom and tolerance for all but in fact support the persecution of Christians (e.g. in Kosovo) which not only supports a more unstable and dangerous world in places such as the Middle East and the Balkans but has caused significant blowback from which we are still suffering here in the West.
What is even more shocking is that US leaders have aligned themselves with precisely the same fascist forces that Americans and Canadians fought so brutally a mere 70 years ago during WWII.

Many Romanians would argue that Romania is not a Balkan country.
There are no allies, only interests.
