Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned US Vice President Mike Pence of another war in the Western Balkans if the EU collapses, including as a result of Donald Trump encouraging member states to leave after Brexit.
Mike Pence was in Brussels on 20 February, but details of what was discussed were only disclosed by Juncker, who spoke to the Financial Times in an exclusive interview published today (24 March).
I told the vice-president, Do not say that. Do not invite others to leave, because if the European Union collapses, you will have a new war in the Western Balkans, Juncker said.
Juncker said it was important to offer countries in the region the prospect of EU membership: If we leave them alone Bosnia-Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, Macedonia, Albania, all those countries we will have war again. Republica Srpska is the Serbian entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The world needs a good war. A lot of the gene pool needs to be eradicated.
Often I grit my teeth at your posts, but this one is magnificent. Best thing I have seen or heard all week.
clap clap clap clap...
What is Republika Srpska?
First time I have (ever) seen that name.
Is it a renamed country, of some sort?
Should have continued reading.
The Balkans Balkanizing is a Balkans problem, NOT a U.S. problem. If the EU is so worried, maybe they could do a deal with Russian before they break apart to take the Balkans off their hands, you know, to prevent a war of Balkanization.
In other words....Dont disband the EU so the muzzies can take it over.
That wouldn’t help in any way. The Albanian Muslims would still Balkanize the Balkans in the most bloody way.
Even the heavy boot of the Roman Empire couldn’t hold the Balkans together. It’s a waste of time and even trying makes you look really really stupid on both a global scale and in a historical sense.
If the EU collapses, there will be war in BalkansThat sounds like a personal problem. Why are you telling us?
Like another Molotov-Ribbentrop?
Predicting War in the Balkans is probably a sure bet no matter what the situation is.
Sort of like bringing democracy and Western values to Afghanistan.
Is Juncker afraid the Muslims will lose this time without Western support?
The correct response is to ask so what?
I thought if the EU collapsed, it would cause Global Warming.
This has been my opinion for a long time as well, as way too many people live in an alternate universe and need to be brought back down to earth and be reintroduced to common sense. As you mentioned this goes for the gene pool as well which has become tainted by some screwed up religious believes, causing mayhem and problems. No doubt that it will happen, just give it a little more time.

I know some folks from the Balkans who legally immigrated here in the 1990s.
They live in an awful former industrial city in the area that looks like a war zone—apparently they feel quite at home there. :-)
But, this is unpossible, the Balkans gots diversity
