Re: "Yugoslavia No More" (3/15/02), - Of all the nationalities that once comprised former Yugoslavia, it will only be the Serbs who will feel regrets at its demise. After all, it was the Serbs who ruthlessly dominated over everybody else ever since the ill-conceived country was cobbled together after WWI , against the wishes or chance to vote by the Croats and Slovenes. Originally called "The Kingdom of Croats, Serbs and Slovenes" it was soon renamed "Yugoslavia" and ruled by royal dictatorship of Serb king Aleksander.
As a bizarre footnote to history, Yugoslavia had its beginnings with a Serb national assassinating the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand and his wife during their visit to Sarajevo, Bosnia, and ended with the aggression by Serbia against its neighbor republics Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia. Let's hope this is the last we will see of the Serb troublemaking in this world!
