forget the "old" and bring in the new. Nobody of this generation (the 30-45y/o's) or the younger generation couldnt care less about that era. They only are concerned about "today".

The Jews know the deal and the Serbs need to stop harping on the past (60 yrs ago -ages ages ages ago).

When you go after 'both', you split your resources and weaken yourself. Go after what is fresh!

You have to plan all this out like a military op and then attack it, not rehash. That is the Serbs number one problem, they try to glorify the past as they feel it makes them stronger and prouder. All it gets them is more folk songs and myths/stories to tell their grandkids about.

That is why many Serbs in America (American-born Serbs) stay away in droves and not get involved.

That is the core reason why I'm no longer involved with the Serb PR end of it or organizational end. Their outlook is wrong and heading towards more misery with their strategy.

Screw the WW2 era, move on and go after this generations murderers and redirect all the funds to it.

Kick out the "old Serbs" and bring in the young generation to lead it. Again, that is why many many young Serbs stay away and don't want to get involved anymore.

Don't agree. Those WWII victims desrve justice too, just as when you are an old man, today's victims will deserve justice to you.

You can't get the future right if you can't get the history straight. The biggest msitake that Serbs made back in the 1960's-1980's was not getting that history straight -- because if we had, when the Balkan wars came along in the 1990's, everyone would have known who the real good guys and bad guys were. But instead, we did the "forgive and forget" trivializing of that WWII genocide against Serbs.

Did you see this?

BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA Mass WWII grave uncovered:

What drove a lot of our young people away was the constant bickering and backward-ass reasoning of the older people in administering the church. The older ones had nothing in common with their younger more educated kids but wouldn't let got of their power to pass it on to the next generation until it was too late. By that time, their kids were gone and so were their grandchildren.
