Part I Historical sources of the historiography vs Titographic „history“ (I) The clarification of the issue of who Tito’s Partisans kept as their main, if not perhaps the only, political-military opponent and enemy during the entire WWII in Yugoslavia, is directly related to the topic of this article – the […]
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.

“I extend a special welcome to Australia’s former prime minister. It is in part due to his tough policy that we regard Australia as a model country. We especially respect it for the brave, direct and Anglo-Saxon consistency which it has shown on migration and defence of the Australian nation”. […]
