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.

The United States the use of force against the sovereign state of Syria is a prima facie violation of international law. It is an act of aggression against the UN Member State in violation of the Charter of the United Nations. It therefore gives Syria the right to react in self-defense or a legal justification for the use of force and it gives any other United Nations Member State the right to act in collective self-defense and to support Syrian action against the US This is the basic understanding of the international legal consequences of the United States use of ...

This article was first published in September 2014. Can we believe Hollande and Cameron? Evidence confirms that NATO is behind the recruitment of “jihadist terrorists
While NATO leaders in Newport Wales [September 2014] debate the Atlantic Alliance’s role “in containing a mounting militant threat in the Middle East”, it is worth recalling that in 2011 at the outset of the war in Syria, NATO became actively involved in the recruitment of Islamic fighters.
Reminiscent of the enlistment of the Mujahideen to wage the CIA’s jihad (holy war) in the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war, NATO headquarters ...
Seventy-five years ago Adolf Hitler launched the biggest and most destructive military campaign in history when three million German and allied troops invaded the Soviet Union along a 1,000-mile front.Operation Barbarossa – the codename for the German invasion of Russia - was no ordinary military campaign: it was an ideological and racist war, a war of destruction and extermination that aimed to kill Jews, enslave the Slavic peoples and destroy communism. The result was a war in which 25 million Soviet citizens died, including a million Jews, executed by the SS in 1941-1942 – an action which became the template ...
Unless We Learn Our History, We’re Doomed to Repeat ItPreface: I am a patriotic American who loves my country. I was born here, and lived here my entire life.So why do I frequently point out America’s warts? Because – as the Founding Fathers and Supreme Court judges have explained – we can only make America better if we honestly examine her shortcomings. After all:“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”Only when Americans can honestly look at our weaknesses can we become stronger. If we fail to do so, history will repeat …While Americans rightly condemn the Nazis as monstrous people, ...
Andrew Bacevich has written a series of books on the topic of U.S. imperialism and U.S. military power. His latest work, America’s War for the Greater Middle East [the GME War] is the latest in this series and as with the previous works is clearly written and logically presented. It covers more narrowly than the previous works the military aspects of U.S. military endeavours in the Middle East (greater – as in including East Africa and Afghanistan et al). Generally he succeeds well and this work is a good ‘primer’ for anyone interested in a quick historical overview of U.S. ...
War with Russia appears increasingly likely as the US and its NATO satraps continue their military provocations of Moscow.As dangers mount, our foolish politicians should all be forced to read, and then re-read, Prof. Christopher Clark’s magisterial book, ‘The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914.’ What is past increasingly appears prologue.Prof. Clark carefully details how small cabals of anti-German senior officials in France, Britain and Russia engineered World War I, a dire conflict that was unnecessary, idiotic, and illogical. Germany and Austria-Hungary of course share some the blame, but to a much lesser degree than the bellicose French, ...
Turkish-US relations have faced many serious stress tests over the past 50 years. The catalyst in overcoming those crises was making strategic considerations, which always underlined the dependence of the two NATO allies on each other, regardless of their differences.These strategic considerations appear to be weakening now, as the regional priorities of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey and the United States no longer overlap, and in many cases conflict with each other.That is certainly the case in Syria, where the two countries are at odds over Washington’s alliance with Syrian Kurdish groups against the Islamic State (IS). Ankara insists these groups are ...
With a general election looming in the United Kingdom and Spain possibly following Greece’s revolt against austerity later this year, we need to think, not just who or what we are voting for, but why we should vote at all.People are suffering from a deficiency which is as unbalancing as a hormone or vitamin deficiency. What we are severely lacking in is democracy. Many of those pondering on the state of politics feel unhappy and somehow depleted. They haven’t yet realised it is democracy that’s lacking because they have believed what so many politicians have told them, over and over ...
The U.S. government’s plan to conquer Russia is based upon a belief in, and the fundamental plan to establish, “Nuclear Primacy” against Russia — an American ability to win a nuclear war against, and so conquer, Russia.This concept became respectable in U.S. academic and governmental policymaking circles when virtually simultaneously in 2006 a short-form and a long-form version of an article endorsing the concept, which the article’s two co-authors there named “nuclear primacy,” were published respectively in the world’s two most influential journals of international affairs, Foreign Affairs from the Council on Foreign Relations, and International Security from Harvard. (CFR got the more popular ...
U.S. air strikes continue against the terrorists of the so-called “Islamic State” — formerly the “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” or ISIS — in the borderlands of Iraqi Kurdistan. American military action has been impelled by the genocidal ISIS threat to Christians and various small Kurdish and other religious minorities, including Yazidis, whose faith is linked to Zoroastrianism, and the ancient monotheistic community of Mandaeans. Meanwhile, questions about the extremist movement and its foreign recruits have spread throughout the Muslim lands and the Muslim minority communities in the West, from Belgium to Australia.
On Monday, August 11, authorities in the ...
Power in politicsPower is the ability to make people, states, movements, organizations, or things to do what they would not otherwise have done. It is a matter of fact that politics is seen to be about might rather than right. It can be said that, in essence, politics is power or in other words, the ability of some international actor to get desired results of his/her political behavior by using whatever instruments (legal or not, moral or not, etc.). In the very broadest sense of its meaning, power can be understood as the ability to influence the results of certain ...
‘Radni logor Jasenovac’ (‘Jasenovac Labour Camp’), the latest work by Croatian author Igor Vukic on the Croatian World War II concentration camp Jasenovac, published by Naklada Pavicic this year, seems like it is inspired by the publications of established Holocaust deniers.
Instead of studying all the available archival records, testimonies and other publications, Vukic avoids confronting the totality of known information on the Jasenovac concentration camp system, and instead cherry-picks and publishes only carefully selected data which supports his ideologically-motivated agenda – the fabrication that Jasenovac was merely a labour camp where no mass murders took place.
The argumentation and evidence cited ...
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 ...
It is apparent given the timelines and the lack of time given to verifying the validity of accusations concerning the gas attack in Homs, Syria, that plans had already been coordinated for such an attack. Watching the mainstream media the viewer receives the impression from the wording of the announcers reports and questions for the “experts” that the matter was already decided in favour of the U.S. military strike on the airbase. I see pictures of Colin Powell at the UN holding up glossy photos of supposed chemical weapons manufacturing plants.
It demonstrates to a high degree how easily manipulated Trump ...
Can we face it in this election season? America is a weapons factory, the White House a war room, and the president the manager of the neoliberal conspiracy to recolonize the planet. It exports war and mass poverty. On the economic front, usurious neoliberalism; on the military front, illegal wars. These are the trenches of America’s battle for world domination in the 21st century.If not stopped, it will be a short century.Since 1945, America’s Manifest Destiny, posing as the Free World’s Crusade against the Red Menace, has claimed 20 to 30 million lives worldwide and bombed one-third of the earth’s ...
It seems clear now that the West wants to defeat Russia in Syria at all costs. This latest protracted confrontation in the Middle East can be understood as a proxy war of the US and NATO against Putin’s resurgent Russia. But Syria is just one zone of engagement in a much wider war against Russia that has been taking place since Putin started to stand up to the West. The same confrontation also occurs in Ukraine and formerly in Georgia, where Russia successfully halted, albeit temporarily, the Western advance. This amounts to a new Cold War or an undeclared war ...
In British mainstream commentary, the 1999 NATO bombing campaign against Slobodan Milosevic’s Yugoslavia is seen as a ‘humanitarian intervention’. Tony Blair still receives much praise for coming to the defence of the ethnic Albanians in Kosovo, whose plight was surely serious as they were subject to increasingly brutal abuses by the Yugoslav army towards the end of 1998 and early 1999. Yet the NATO bombing that began in March 1999 had the effect of deepening, not preventing, the humanitarian disaster that Milosevic’s forces inflicted on Kosovo. The bulk of the atrocities committed by Yugoslav forces took place after the NATO ...
Like in Israel, US ruling elites plan for the future strategies and choose presidents to suit the needs. After using a Black President Obama to attack North Africans and Arab nations for their energy resources in order to ensure energy security of the superpower, now the US leaders seem to think of using a female President in the name of Hillary to advance US interests globally.Former US state secretary Hillary Clinton and associates are being pampered by those who are scared of any possible change in US foreign policy towards a possible thaw and neutrality in world affairs, notwithstanding what ...
Comparing testimony from Vietnamese women and American soldiers, Gina Marie Weaver, in her book Ideologies of Forgetting: Rape in The Vietnam War, finds that rape of Vietnamese women by American troops during the US invasion of Vietnam was a “widespread”, “everyday occurrence” that was essentially “condoned”, even encouraged, by the military, and had its foundation in military training and US culture. She explores why US rape in Vietnam was so common, and why this aspect of US behavior has been virtually “erased” from “narratives of the war”. She stresses the issue is also important as rape in the US military continues ...
CNN recently discovered a paradox. How was it possible, they asked, that in 1989, Viktor Orban, at the time a Western-acclaimed liberal opposition leader, was calling for Soviet troops to leave Hungary, and now that he is Prime Minister, he is cozying up to Vladimir Putin?
For the same reason, dummy.
Orban wanted his country to be independent then, and he wants it to be independent now.
In 1989, Hungary was a satellite of the Soviet Union. Whatever Hungarians wanted, they had to follow directives from Moscow and adhere to Soviet communist ideology.
Today, Hungary is ordered to follow directives from Brussels and adhere ...
