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?
That won't fly very far while you have indictees in the Hague and Mladic is at large. I think anybody on Madison Avenue would tell you that.
There is another very important point that I did not include.
Post WWII, Nazism didn't die -- it went into hibernation. Most Americans know about the old Nazis down in South America. But one crucial link that was ingored, was that a significant number of old German Nazis, including some fairly high-level ones, went to the ME and spread the diabolical seeds there. Many of these German Nazis converted to Islam and took on Arab names. They translated Mein Kampf and the Elders of Zion into Arabic. http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/where.html
What you are fighting today aren't just radical Islamists. They are actually, Mein Kampf-carrying, neo-Nazi Islamists. The "Islamo-fascist" title is no joke and isn't just about Islam. The "Jew-hating", violence and totalitarian structure of Nazism appealed to these Islamists-- as did the WWII Nazi focus on "eliminating Christianity" http://www-camlaw.rutgers.edu/publications/law-religion/nuremberg/nurinst1.htm . Here was the WWII Nazi Bosnian Muslim flag that pretty much says it all: http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/gallery/pages/1-flag_jpg_jpg_jpg.htm
Once again, WWII matters because Nazism is back in a big way -- mostly under the title of "radical Islam". I also think that some of the old Euro Nazis are helping them, which is how and why the Slovenes & Croats (WWII Nazi Ustashi), Bosnian Muslims (WWII Nazi Handzars)and Albanians (WWII Nazi Skanderbergs) all got together to pull off the destruction of Yugoslavia. I do not believe that it was a coincidence -- it was too well choreographed to be anything other than "a plan to be executed".
