It's time to do an honest review!
Historians will write and speak on the fall of #Kabul from here on, and this topic will feed conference sponsors and lecture circuit speakers around the world.
Had George Bush stayed away from Iraq, the situation today could have been different?
Saddam Hussein, a bloody tyrant that he was, at least kept the strategic balance of power in check from a sectarian perspective in the Middle East.
His removal unleashed the great schism between the rival school of thought, but, also shifted the focus away from #Afghanistan.
Iraq is reeling from the effects of the war that Blair and Bush launched based on fabricated grounds.
No WoMDs were found inside Iraq!
This was part of the greater #Neoconservative Plan based in Washington to weaken the Arab States, which could offer resistance to Israel.

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.馃彮
57 are detailed in the link provided.馃憞

2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss 膰evap & pljeskavica!馃ズ Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.馃暞锔
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.馃檹 ImageImage

THREAD #OTD in 1918 elected representatives from South Slav lands of former Austria-Hungary address non-elected King of #Serbia expressing their desire to create a joint state, initially under lame name of Kingdom of #Serbs, #Croats & #Slovenes (SHS), later renamed #Yugoslavia /2
2/ An archetypical #Balkans business: well-intended, ill prepared, poorly executed. All sides try to cheat & gain advantage over their partners, with biggest & strongest imposing their will at force whenever they can, at same time paying lip service to equality and brotherhood /3
3/ So begin lies, manipulations & exploitation of good intentions for selfish means. The only politician with a vision who could turn that mess into a sort-of-modern state is assassinated in parliament, precisely for calling to stop endless retelling of myths & move forward /4

Vienna attacker was born and raised in #Vienna
He also had "Albanian roots" (parents from North Macedonia)

The gunman shot dead in the Vienna attacks was also one of 90 Austrian Islamists who wanted to travel to #Syria

Why is it relevant?

The #Balkans play an important role for #ISIS, which sees them as a buffer and a future battleground. The region already has established networks that can be used to transfer people and to raise support for ISIS.

ISIS has popped up in all corners of the globe, not being contained in the territory it physically controls in Iraq and Syria. Its goal is to create a Caliphate, an Islamic state which holds religious authority over the ENTIRE global Islamic community.

First #Jihadi #mujahideen warriors in #Bosnia 馃嚙馃嚘 began arriving in 1992. Firstly as a humanitarian workers, and later to become the martyrs on Allah麓s road in #Bosnia. Their first camp was in village of #Mehurici and their 1st leader was Abu Abdel Aziz aka #Barbaros. 猬囷笍猬囷笍猬囷笍
The main financier of these warriors was Mohammed al-Fatih Hassaneyn from #Sudan 馃嚫馃嚛 who with his brother Sukarno founded #TWRA an NGO in #Vienna #Austria 馃嚘馃嚬 from where he transferred money and #Jihadi warriors to #Bosnia 馃嚙馃嚘.
In 1970麓s Hassaneyn was Sudanese student in #Belgrade dentistry college where he used his free time to travel
through #Yugoslavia to visit his fellow Muslims. That麓s how he met another student Alija Izetbegovic in #Sarajevo and new friendship started.

袎褍写懈,
Here's an interesting tweet that I dug out because I wanted to talk about #France, after talking about #Serbia this night.
Indeed France betrayed Serbs in the 90s, & has been holding onto it since.
I guess it deserves an explanation, from a Frenchman who's not on a payroll.
2. First, as an Historical reminder, what #France betrayed was something big. 200 years of joint History since a wave of Serbian diplomats & scholars came into France to see what we were doing, & then Prince Petar Kara膽or膽evi膰 fought in the Franco-Prussian War on the French side.
3. France, despite its ties with the Ottoman Empire, progressively supported Serbia against it because it needed a new foothold in the Balkans, & #Serbia and Serbs showed interest, & huge appreciation for French intellectual & artistic movements. This relationship grew until WW1. Image

As Yugoslavia is trending again lets take a few moments to re visit this amazing country - the Federal People's Republic of Fun! #MondayMotivation
#Yugoslavia was very much the sophisticated side of socialism: more G-plan than five year plan...
...although rural Yugoslavia was, er, pretty rural.

Without a country to call their own, the Donauschwaben have an identity problem. The Donauschwaben, anglicized 鈥淒anube Swabians鈥, came into existence in the 17th and 18th century when German pioneers settled in Habsburg, Hungary. #danubeswabian #german #donauschwaben
German troops, commanded by Prince Eugene of Savoy, a Frenchman in service of the Austro-Hungarian dual-monarchy in command of German troops, had recovered land from 150 years of Turkish misrule. #danubeswabian #german #donauschwaben
In the aftermath of the Second World War, the Donauschwaben were divided, stripped of their possessions and expelled from their homelands. #danubeswabian #expelledgermans #justiceforgermans #German

It is extremely disturbing to read about the the current state secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of #Croatia, Zdravka Bu拧i膰 taking part in #terrorist training and posing with fascist insignia in USA during the 1970s.

zurnal.info/novost/22572/p鈥
The photos of Zdravka Bu拧i膰 and her friend Mercedes 艩kegro posing with guns and #Croat fascist insignia were taken by journalist Nikola Majstrovi膰.

In 1977, he was tasked to make a documentary featuring Croat emigrants in USA, titled "The #Croats: Terrorists or Freedom Fighters"
During the 1970s, Zdravka Bu拧i膰 was a member of the Croatian National Resistance (HNO), a fascist #Usta拧a organization founded by Maks Luburi膰, a Croat fascist who headed the system of concentration camps in the Independent State of #Croatia (NDH) during much of the WWII.

#Somalia under Farmaajo is moving closer and closer to loose confederation at best, #Yugoslavia-style split of the nation at worst!! It seems N&N are totally opposed to the very idea of federalism and prefer a return to the dictatorship days! Nostalgia for doomed days is madness!
30 years of brutal civil war, recurring droughts/famine, serious corruption, high levels of unemployment, and short sighted/very selfish politicians - with no solution in sight is pushing some of us to consider the unimaginable: to save Somalis #Somalia might have to be split-up!
Last December I worked on a 'resilience' research in #Kismayo, #Baidoa, and #Beledweyn. My team and I interviewed nearly 500 people in these cities on how they cope with displacement, conflict, climate change. The answers were heartbreaking! Their living conditions traumatizing!!

En el Consejo de Asuntos Exteriores de la #UE estamos debatiendo la situaci贸n en los #Balcanes. Es una grave irresponsabilidad proponer para #Catalunya la "v铆a eslovena", "con todas las consecuencias" y "dispuestos a todo". Es apelar a una soluci贸n violenta...(1/4)

a #Irlanda. En ambos casos se produjeron guerras atroces. Pero ahora es m谩s grave porque se hace desde la Presidencia de la #Generalitat. Solo desde una extrema ignorancia se puede comparar la #Eslovenia de la Yugoslavia de 1990, todav铆a de partido 煤nico, con la Catalunya...(3/4)
