SERBIAN SETTLEMENT IN BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA BEGAN IN THE SEVENTH CENTURY A.D.
Note: Croats settled much later and in insignificant numbers. That is why they are not mentioned much in the literature.
THE EMPEROR CONSTANTINE VII PORPHYROGENITUS (reigned 913-957) REFERRED TO BOSNIA AS PART OF *THE LAND OF THE SERBS*.
BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA… THE LARGEST SINGLE NATIONAL ELEMENT IS THE ORTHODOX SERBS, followed by Moslem Slavs (few of whom can trace their origin to Turkish colonists) and Catholic Croats…
…The republics of Croatia and Slovenia are predominantly Roman Catholic, while the republics of Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, and BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA (!!!) are predominantly ORTHODOX
In the ’90-ies Alija Izetbegovic, former SS Hadschar member, Islamist. Alija Izetbegovic promoted a violent Muslim fundamentalist ideology. One can see that by reading from Izetbegovic’s own book ‘Islamic Declaration,’ where he explains very clearly that Muslims may not organize under any secular system and that the only proper behaviour towards ‘infidels’ is violence. Alija Izetbegovic did not speak for all Bosnian Muslims. In fact, he spoke for a minority of them, but what he spoke:
“There’s no peace or coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions.”
’’There is a great reluctance in the West to recognize that the fighting in Bosnia is a resurgence of the conflict between Islam and Christendom which shaped five centuries of Balkan history.’’
’’Muslim nations will never accept anything that is explicitly against Islam, because Islam here is not merely a faith and the law, Islam has become love and compassion. He who rises against Islam will reap nothing but hate’’ etc.
Therefore, we have radical Islamists led by the former SS officer, supported by the USA and her allies (EU, Arabs, Iran – there was a strong alliance between the USA and Iran in Bosnia during the war), and neonazi Croats, and Serbs. And we have NATO as well.
Nato was engaged against Serbs (some would say – traditionally), who were bombed (August – September 1995.) meanwhile Bosnian Muslims and Croats were armed and equipped besides embargo (the author has personal information about the weapon flow via Split airport).
After 1995, when the Dayton treaty was signed, NATO remained in Bosnia under the name of SFOR (the Stabilization Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina) in order to ’’ensure peace.’’ Meanwhile the ’’high representatives have used every opportunity to reduce the authorities Republika Srpska got on behalf of Muslim – Croatian federation. Later on it was replaced by EUFOR. But since more than 80% of HQ and staff remained on their positions, it was just the title that changed. The change occurred on December 2, 2004.
The civilian implementation of the Dayton Peace Agreement is overseen by the Office of the High Representative. EUFOR has 2,503 troops from 27 different countries, also additional forces from other countries, such as Chile and Turkey .
EUFOR’s commander is currently Major General Anton Valder of Austria, who has been in the position since March 2017. For this mission, the European Union Military Staff uses the Supreme Allied Command in Europe as the EU Operational Command and works through the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Powers in Europe, a European officer.
…and: EUFOR activity has been conducted through NATO Headquarters in Sarajevo. – Bosnia i Hercegovina is not in NATO, but NATO is in Bosnia.
In March 2015, EUFOR had a total of 660 troops from 23 countries. The countries participating in the mission are: EU: Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, United Kingdom, Finland, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sweden and Spain.
The civilian implementation of the Dayton Peace Agreement is overseen by the Office of the High Representative. EUFOR has 2,503 troops from 27 different countries, mostly from European Union member states. There are also additional forces from other countries, such as Chile and Turkey .
It might be interesting to see that the EUFOR commanders came from WW II Nazi states /except the case of UK could be discussed.
Also, out of 13, eight of them were Austrians. If we know the Austrian historical aspirations in Bosnia, and what happened after the Austria anected Bosnia, as well as the role of notorious Austrian envoy Benjamin Kalaj (1839 – 1903) in creation of some Bosnian (exclusively Muslim) identity, his anti Serb measures – it becomes clear that in this case, there’s no coincidence. As for Russia, seems that she’ll not actively interfere neither in Bosnia nor in Kosovo. Moscow supports every agreement the two sided achieve, but the support, at least in Balkans, remains verbal.
However, after the latest declaration of the notorious SDA, political party (some say ’personal enterprise’’) of the Izetbegovic family, which urges for Republic of Srpska to be cancelled (’’for the unification of Bosnia i Hercegovina’’, under the Muslim rule) it goes directly against the Dayton accords.
But the so called international community as well as their High representative remains silent and simply turns blind eye to this violation.
Let’s analyze it: Republika Srpska is against joining NATO (NATO actively participated in war(s) in the area, without exception targeting and killing Serbs and helping their enemies, ’’ from the Vardar up to Triglav’. NATO bombed Republika Srpska in August 1995. NATO participated in the so called op. Storm, when the Krajina ceased to exist and when Krajina Serbs were massacred, murdered and exterminated.
NATO made an alliance with Al Qaeda both in Bosnia and in Kosovo, in order to fight the Serbs.
Even though NATO IS in Bosnia (as well as in Belgrade), for Serbs from both sides of the Drina river, joining NATO would have been as if some raped girl is being forced to marry the one who did it to her.
When it comes to the Muslim illegal resolution, global(ist) media also turns blind eye. Since both Serbia and Russia are parties in the accords, they could and should react but both states remain silent.
As for NATO, this is their opportunity – Serbs and Repubika Srpska represent an obstacle for NATO, and last week Izetbegovic de facto demanded cancellation of the Republic of Srpska.
”but rather to ensure, as time passes and the circumstances change, that it makes things ’’functional’’.
That means the reforms are going to be necessary, the reforms concerning the institutions and their functions. That’s why the treaty needs an evolution.’’
Since it’s Republika Srpska that keeps Bosnia and Hercegovina out of NATO by the right to VETO provided by the Dayton treaty, it’s not difficult to see not only what kind of changes (’’evolution’’) of the treaty USA is up to as well as that the old alliance between Bosnian Muslims (SDA) works in perfect coordination.
The meeting between president of Serbia and parliamentaries from the Republic of Srpska will be held in Belgrade on Saturday, 21. September.
Let’s see what will happen then.

24 March 1999 was a day of gross shame and ignominy in the historical annals of Britain and America. It was the day when the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation became the North American Terrorist Organisation. NATO, for the first time since its founding in 1949, launched a vicious, unprovoked and illegal attack against the sovereign nation of Yugoslavia, in a preplanned act of aggression sponsored by US President Bill Clinton.
The 78 days of NATO air strikes took place without the necessary UN Security Council authorisation. It is equally loathsome that Clinton’s violence against the Serbs, who were our gallant allies ...
The recent Kerch Strait incident marks a new low amid the US-led expansion of NATO eastward.The intentional provocation executed by Kiev saw three Ukrainian naval vessels seized by Russia. The vessels were intentionally violating the protocol for passing through the Strait – previously agreed upon by Kiev and previously observed by Ukrainian naval vessels.The extent to which Ukraine was aware of these protocols and the 2003 agreement that put them in place includes entire events organized in Ukraine by NATO-sponsored “think tanks” discussing the necessity to “rip them up” and attempt to assert greater control over the current joint-use of the ...
During and after the the Kosovo conflict in 1998-1999, the KLA abducted and kidnapped over 2,000 Kosovo civilians, Serbs, Roma, and Albanians that opposed the KLA, who were tortured and murdered. Ten years after the conflict, these 2,000 remain missing. Approximately 1,000 to 1,3000 Kosovo Serbs are missing and presumed dead. How did they die? UNMIK occupation forces have been reluctant to investigate these mass murders of Kosovo civilians. What happened to them? Evidence has emerged that the KLA ran a series of prison camps, in Kosovo and in Albania itself, where they tortured and murdered Kosovo Serbs, Roma, and ...
In regard to international relations (IR), power is understood as the ability of state or other political actors to impose its own control or influence over other state(s) or other political actors, or at least to influence the outcome of events on the local, regional or global level. Power politics as a phenomena has two dimensions: internal and external. The internal dimension is applied in the inner policy of the state and the external in the foreign affairs or outside of the home politics. The powerfulness of a state depends on its real independence or sovereignty from outside influence on ...
As the Niksic (Montenegro) local elections approach, the situation is becoming more and more fascinating.
On one hand, the Montenegrin opposition, aiming at the transparency and integrity of the government, boycotted the plebiscite in the country's second largest city and turned it into a show – elections with no choice.
On the other is the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists which has been forming the conditions for its unlimited rule while violating the interests of the Montenegrin people. Exploiting its ultimate power, DPS withdrew the immunity of the opposition leaders and is set to win the elections with simply no rally.
The ruling ...
A weakened leader in a powerful country can be a recipe for danger. Donald Trump's encroaching legal troubles might prove just the time for a seriously big international crisis, even a bit of a war. The obvious choice is Iran, and Trump may well have been heading that way even before his latest problems with Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort and potentially special investigator Robert Mueller.
Trump may be confident of holding firm to his support base and thus ensuring the loyalty of Republican candidates in the mid-term Congressional elections. But as pressure grows on him, a conflict with Iran – encouraged ...
The official end of the Cold War era in 1989 brought during the first coming years a kind of international optimism that the idea of the „end of history“ really could be realized as it was a belief in no reason for the geopolitical struggles between the most powerful states. The New World Order, spoken out firstly by M. Gorbachev in his address to the UN on December 7th, 1988 was originally seen as the order of equal partnership in the world politics reflecting „radically different international circumstances after the Cold War“.
Unfortunately, the Cold War era finished without the „end ...
Reading The New York Times these days is like getting a daily dose of the “Two Minutes Hate” as envisioned in George Orwell’s 1984, except applied to America’s new/old enemy Russia. Even routine international behavior, such as Russia using fictitious names for potential adversaries during a military drill, is transformed into something weird and evil. In the snide and alarmist style that the Times now always applies to Russia, reporter Andrew Higgins wrote – referring to a fictitious war-game “enemy” – “The country does not exist, so it has neither an army nor any real citizens, though it has acquired a ...
Taking the extraordinary USA and EU economic sanctions against Russia and low oil prices since 2014 into account, Russia’s economic outlook looks excellent going forward while that of Trump’s America looks bleak, to put it mildly. Paraphrasing the memorable 1992 Presidential candidates debate between a then-young William Jefferson Clinton and George H.W. Bush, “It’s the debt, stupid.”
In the past few years too many US economists and analysts such as Moody’s Credit Rating have tried to dismiss the economy of the Russian Federation as a near-bankrupt Soviet-era oil and gas-dependent economy, devastated by the 2014 collapse in oil price. This is ...
Slobodan Milosevic was faced with an extremely serious and deadly situation in the 1990s. Indeed, that applied to all Serbs at that time in the Balkans, and still does to this very day. Mr Milosevic was up against the West, led by America and followed by the European Union. After realising that the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia could not be saved, Milosevic did everything he could to safeguard the newly created Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and protect Serbs living in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo and Metohija. And because of that, the West imposed crippling and merciless sanctions on the ...
In recent weeks, we have witnessed yet again how public broadcaster Croatian Radio-Television, HRT, continues to offer a platform to obscure historical revisionists.
Last week, while presenting the Festival of Patriotic Film dedicated to Goran Lederer, a Croatian journalist killed by the Yugoslav People’s Army in 1991, the organisers of the festival were given time to present highly controversial films on HRT’s widely-viewed morning show ‘Good Morning Croatia’.
Besides the fact that the main organiser of the festival is a war veterans’ association whose president and founder was Croatian war criminal Tomislav Mercep, their selection of films is symbolically even worse.
Miloš Zeman said in an interview for the Serbian newspaper Večernje novosti, that recognition of Kosovo’s independence has opened a Pandora’s Box and called the Kosovo deputy Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi a war criminal.
Zeman, among other things, confirmed that he will travel to Moscow for the celebrations of the end of the Second World War because the Soviet army liberated most of the former Czechoslovakia.
The Czech president has openly expressed himself on Kosovo in the past, for example he labeled the country a very strange state with a strong narco-mafia influence.

In 2003, America (and its lap-dog UK) invaded and destroyed Iraq on the basis of lies to the effect that the U.S. (and UK) regime were certain that Saddam Hussein had and was developing weapons of mass destruction. These U.S. allegations were based on provable falsehoods when they were stated and published, but the regime's 'news'-media refused to publish and demonstrate (or "expose") any of these lies. That's how bad the regime was (and its media's 'news' were) — this was virtually a total lock-down against truth, and for international conquest (in that case, of Iraq): it was mass-murder and ...
Christopher Marsh and I, in our recently published book (Russian Foreign Policy: Interests, Vectors and Sectors), sketch out what we term "Putin's Eurasian dream"—the ambition to create a Eurasian economic and political zone where Moscow sets the overall agenda and is able to hold its own in the global geopolitical competition with the United States, the EU and China—and to have the foundations laid by 2015. A major obstacle to this vision was abruptly removed on Thursday when Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych announced that his country would not sign a landmark partnership agreement with the European Union—which Russia had consistently ...
The Bellamy salute is the salute described by Francis Bellamy, Christian socialist minister and author, to accompany the American Pledge of Allegiance, which he had authored. During the period when it was used with the Pledge of Allegiance, it was sometimes known as the "flag salute". Later, during the 1920s and 1930s, Italian fascists and Nazis adopted a salute which had a similar form, and which was derived from the so-called Roman salute. This resulted in controversy over the use of the Bellamy salute in the United States. It was officially replaced by the hand-over-heart salute when Congress amended the ...
Last Thursday, news reports were largely devoted to the March 22 Brussels terror bombings and the US primary campaigns. And so little attention was paid to the verdict of the International Criminal Tribunal for (former) Yugoslavia (ICTY) finding Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic guilty of every crime it could come up with, including “genocide”. It was a “ho-hum” bit of news. Karadzic had already been convicted by the media of every possible crime, and nobody ever imagined that he would be declared innocent by the single-issue court set up in The Hague essentially to judge the Serb side in the ...
Today marks twenty-nine years since the shootdown by the USS Vincennes of Iran Air flight 655, which killed all of the plane’s 290 civilian passengers. This shootdown of a civilian airliner by a US naval ship occurred on July 3, 1988, toward the end of the eight-year Iran-Iraq War.
This incident is, of course, something that the people of Iran well remember. Americans who rely on the US mainstream media, on the other hand, would have to be forgiven for never having heard about it.
Furthermore, in the rare instances when the media do mention it, to this day they tend to ...
How much longer are we accepting the tyrannical dictate of the American rulers? It gets worse by the day – and it looks like the western world’s “leaders” (sic – so sic!) are caving in ever more to the American killing machine – the European Union – and all its members heads of state, and all the Zion-Anglosaxons and Japan – no one dares standing up and shouting “NO!” – no more of your hegemonic atrocities! – But they all bend over backwards to please a criminal empire, run like the Barbarians.Imagine, the so-called world leader invites you to a ...
BELGRADE – Amnesty of crimes during NATO aggression, bilateral legalization of Camp Bondsteel in a friendly milieu, settling the Islamic world with support to their communities in the Balkans and forcing Russia out of that same Balkans, are four reasons the US supports the independence of Kosovo, writes “Sputnik”.On Christmas (according to Gregorian calendar) Michael Kirby shows up. Outgoing US Ambassador congratulates Serbia upcoming New Year. “The normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina implies Kosovo’s membership in the UN,” was the content of the “greeting card”.Apart from some kind of formalization, Kirby’s statement is not new for the local public ...
War is evil; permanent war is permanent evil. It is evil to humans but also to other species and the planet; the weapons used destroy us but also contaminate and destroy nature.Despite a general knowledge of the evils of war and acceptance of peace and the rule of law, war has become a permanent feature of the 21st century -destructive, cruel, dehumanizing and vindictive. Its message: those who can kill and destroy the most have the upper hand. Major General Smedley Butler said it in a speech in 1933: “war is a racket.” Butler, who had joined the Marine Corps ...
