Peace In Our Time

Some may say the Dayton Agreement was made to be broken; that it was a temporary patch on the gaping wound that was Bosnia, scheduled to hold it together past a US election cycle and then - back to the way it was. Others say it was meant to "evolve" into something else, some sort of postmodern, omnipotent managerial state the likes of which we're seeing implode all across the West today.

Yet somehow, it held. The Guns of April fell silent, the armies were disbanded, and even the "peacekeepers" that still drive around are a bare handful, there just for show and a hefty per diem. The "High Representatives" proved to be a joke, tin-pot viceroys attempting to play God - and failing. Forces that tore Bosnia apart before it even came into existence have continued to seethe, and the underlying problem shows no sign of being solved anytime soon. But the armistice has held for twenty years now. That's something.

Five years ago, I wrote a personal account of those days. This time, I made it a history lesson. Lest we forget.
I meant to post this earlier this week, but the War In Our Time got in the way. Sometimes I think it's the extension of the same one I went through, 20 years ago. We'll see what happens. I figured I'd post it today, though, on the day Americans celebrate as Thanksgiving, in honor of something I am thankful for.

Here's to us, the living.

Like in Libya and Syria the war in Bosnia was started by NATO backed islamic terrorists committing false flag massacres and genocide. Thier leader Izetbegovic persued similar goals and methods like ISIS.
Today Bosnia is a base for ISIS terrorists.

Izetbegovic in his book:
"... In one of the thesis for an Islamic order today we have stated that it is a natural function of the Islamic order to gather all Muslims and Muslim communities throughout the world into one. Under present conditions, this desire means a struggle for creating a great Islamic federation from Morocco to Indonesia, from the tropical Africa to the Central Asia. ..."

"Izetbegovic wants a small country of two million ethnically pure Muslim inhabitants," Halilovic said, adding that Izetbegovic actually "wants a feudal Muslim state ".

"Self-Inflicted Atrocities"

US ambassador Galbraith on US support for Islamic terrorists in the Bosnia:

"He[Izetbegovic] said he didn't like it," Mr. Zimmermann recalled. "I told him, if he didn't like it, why sign it?"

Some interesting reading material:

"A former Central Intelligence Agency clandestine service officer revealed to WMR that the CIA worked closely with George Soros-financed non-governmental organizations in the former Yugoslavia to ensure the power of Serbians was limited and the influence of Muslims, some with ties to global jihadism and organized crime, was advanced."

"Chief Bosnian Serb media targets were “Srpski Glas” magazine and Banja Luka SRT (Bosnian Serb TV)."
