Balkan i Kavkaz

Iz vrlo zanimljivog članka sa Economistovog Eastern Approaches bloga:

In Soviet times Nagorno-Karabakh was a mostly Armenian-populated autonomous region in Azerbaijan. In Yugoslav times Kosovo was a mostly Albanian-populated autonomous province of Serbia.
Armenians fought a war against the Azeris in the early 1990s, and the Kosovo Albanians against the Serbs in 1998-99. Nagorno-Karabakh declared independence in 1991. Serbia’s administration and security forces were expelled from Kosovo by NATO in 1999. The region was then run by the United Nations. It declared independence in 2008.
On the face of it there are plenty of similarities between Soviet breakaway statelets like Nagorno-Karabakh and Kosovo. But there are also many differences. No countries have recognised Nagorno-Karabakh as an independent state, but more than 80 have recognised Kosovo. Western countries emphasise that they believe that the Kosovo case is not a precedent for others.

A presedan je jer su one tako odlučile,argument je kršenje osnovnih ljudskih prava,koje valjda niko nikad nigde sem nas nije kršio i demografija.
Samo se postavlja onda pitanje a šta su bile RS i RSK,pošto su oba argumenta i tamo bila validna,al onda mudraci sa zapada uvek izvuku istog zeku iz šešira-zločestog Zlobu...
Da nam ga ne rodi jadna njegova majka,5+ vekova mirnodopskog života svih konfesija i naroda u kojima su štokavci živeli ne bi se ni prekinulo.
Mislim da nas i dalje podcenjuju,jer čak iako smo sve ratove izgubili nije mi jasno zašto se na Balkanu stalno igraju igre nulte sume,a sve na našu štetu.
Nadam se svim srcem da će u što skorije vreme Republika Srpska proglasiti nezavisnost,jer su svi licemerni prema nama. A onda idem kod rodbine u Bosanski Brod da mašem srpskom zastavom i pozdravim nove stare komšije u Slavonskom Brodu.
