“which killed or displaced more than 200,000 Serbs in 1995, in the largest European land offensive since World War II, the Genocide Victims of Krajina say in Chicago Federal Court”

Idiotic statement by blind nationalists. Serbia killed 10,000 Kosovo Albanians and displaced close to one million so there you have it, a new post WWII record. And I’m willing to bet that more than 200,000 Bosniaks and Croats were ‘displaced’ by Serbs.

Serbs got burned badly, first they threw out all the Croats from Krajina (Serbs were settlers there) and then refused the Z4 plan, only to lose everything in a brilliantly planned move by USA. It taught Serbs a valuable lesson, one that was continued in Kosovo: Stop causing trouble or you will cease to exist as a country.

With what I’ve read, the Serbs left days before the liberation of Croatia began.

Your perspective is off-base.

More specifically, Operation Storm, led to many deaths and a massive population flight of up to 250,000-300,000 Serbs to Bosnian Serb territories and elsewhere into Yugoslavia.

In short, the Serbian presence in Croatia, which had accounted for about 12 percent of the republic's population 1991, was reduced to a mere 3 percent.

In fact, this was the largest example of ethnic cleansing during the break-up of Yugoslavia.

Regurgitating the 10,000 Albanian deaths... oh dear.

Too funny, if this indeed is the case then I suppose all this blustering about Operation Storm's military success is pretty much moot. If the metric for success of a professional military operation is to have effectively attacked and removed a civilian population, then perhaps the argument can be made.

Almost embarrassing.
