Atrocities in the Balkans are not exclusively perpetrated by Slavic Muslims. If the Croats could ditch their fond memories of the Ustasha and the Serbs give up their perpetual god of victimhood they could both begin to reclaim some moral ground. But until that happens they will all keep on behaving badly. In the Balkans, the past is prologue. No one there wants to talk honestly about what wrongs their side has done, only about what wrongs have been done to them.

Yes, there have been atrocities on all sides. But clinton and the liberal press have been pretending that the only atrocities were performed by Serbs.
A whole different question is, what is in the national security interest of the United States, and what promotes the stability of Europe?
It's not paving the way for Muslim terrorists (many of whom came in from outside) to enter Europe.

It wasn't the point of my post to talk about who's most to blame for the atrocities. My point was to point out that Paddy Ashdown is a Clintonite lying hack when he says that nobody's seen any evidence of Islamic terrorism in the Balkan's. I suppose it all comes down to what your definition of "terrorism" is.
Quoting him to "prove" that there's no al-Qaeda in the Balkans is like quoting Walter Duranty to "prove" that there was no genocide in the Ukraine under Stalin.
