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?

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.

i disagree with your statements. you halve your resources and further polarize the generations by wanting to go after guys that are going to die in a few years anyway. go get the guys who are still active so they live a life of jail.

that is what drove away many of the younger Serbs and part of your explaniation as well, the bickering which was also brought on by the aforementioned.

That is why I don't harp on the WW2 era at all, it is done with. Besides, the generation you want to reach out and touch is our generation of Americans. They do not want to be given history lessons about their grandfathers era. Ya need to know and learn that, give up harping on the past. Stop thinking like a Serb and think like a Marketing Director, you've gotta sell 'em todays problems as we Americans "don't go that far back" (saying). Razumish/Understand?
