An uncomfortable truth regarding Serbia...

Notice, I am no way shape or form excusing or expressing sympathy for what the Serbs did to the Bosnians during the Balkan war of the 1990s. One thing that I certainly did not know until very recently, and that I don't think many others know is that Bosnia was incorporated into the World War II Ustashe state, and that state declared itself to be both Catholic and Muslim, united by a nationalism that may have seen Bosnians as Muslim Croats. This, no doubt, fueled resentment by the Serbs, since the Ustashe were mass murderers who executed hundreds of thousands of Serbs during World War II.
