1. Then you must have some notion where in the human body the spirit resides exactly. (J, 21 March 2017 02:22)


    I like stubborn people but not the stupid. How many times do I have to tell that I have no answer for this question? Is the spirit inside or we are inside the cocone this I don't know. The idea of the angels and spirits appeared in 17 century when the remaining Angelos Dynasty of Byzantine (Wilhelm of Orlean) seized power in England and gave their family name to this country. This I can talk about but not something that I have no idea of.


    Joni : And how many Europeans have Russia betrayed rote? ... But no, rote, Serbs and Greeks are the only one who betrayed and disappointed you.

    I know no nations whom Russia betrayed other than Afghanistan. I think we've dissapointed Serbs when we let their country be torn into pieces. But it wasn't a treason because we were a colony of the USA at the time. Just like all Balkan peoples are now. Except Serbia all the rest are the US K-9 unit that are allowed only to suck and bark. They are objects of the international relations while Serbia is though small but a subject.

    Albanians firstly!
    But no, rote, Serbs and Greeks are the only one who betrayed and disappointed you.


    Those countries are the only one who take an enormous help and are the only one at least as the history show from the WWI - to WWII, that kicked your ass out of Balkan.
    Were the first who deny you, and in the first occasion would do it again.
    But you are free to show to us, when these countries did not disappoint you?
    After the WWI when kicked you out Serbia and Greece?
    After WWII when kick you out of their countries again?
    Choose with love!

    You mentioned the word spirit in connection to Serbs being spiritually like the Russians. Then you must have some notion where in the human body the spirit resides exactly.

  4. Dump this completely failed union, its worthless.

    BOB
    serbs and croats do not get along despite being extremely similar, however i would argue that the hatred isnt really amongst 100% of the serbs and croats. Alot of it gets driven by extreme nationalists on both sides.

  5. about Serbia's identity and its place in the Balkans stuck between two (or more) worlds.
    (Bob, 20 March 2017 17:55)


    They stuck on this border because they stopped it from moving eastward. In a way Serbs created this border despite the century long terror of the protestant-catholic world. Now they fear that Russia can reinforce this frontier. Of course Serbs are as different as trader Ari Gold and open hearted Dragoljub Djurkovic but the trend is patriotic now. I think Serbia is already the moral leader of the Balkans. Because it's the only nation that never sucked here. In my eyes their main guilt was that they stopped the wars not reaching the victory. Balkans would be a safer place now.


    Rote, where specifically in the human body does the spirit reside?

  8. Hi rote

    ...it was just an effort to point out an ironical anomally in a jokey way.

    However, I am not convinced that Serbs are quite as in love with Russia as a lot of recent reporting has implied. It is not a conclusive state of mind; it is more a case of being an experimental thought process to try to resolve uncertainties about Serbia's identity and its place in the Balkans stuck between two (or more) worlds. This positional dilemma in Serbia is somewhat illustrated by the humerous and ironical saying "Speak Serbian so the whole world can understand you!".

  9. Serbs want to join EU because there's the money, prosperity and future. Russia on the other hand sooner or later will end up like USSR.

    I don't get this though. They like Russia, who in return is a good friend with Turkey, and whose president said this: 'You are Europe's future': Erdogan tells Turks in Europe have five kids [link]/ (AND) Turkey to open its largest military base in the world in Somalia [link]

  10. If Serbians feel ethnically close to Russia, then they must be positively in love with Croatia!
    (Bob, 20 March 2017 14:52)

    Ethnically the closest are the Poles, Ukrainians and Byelorus who all are simly Russians. But you can see that ethnical closeness is not enough. There must also be spiritual closeness such as between the Russians and the Armenians and the Greeks. From this point Serbs are the closest people in Europe. In 17-18 centuries the Croats made their choice despite everything. So there's nothing to complain for and nothing you can teach us. Rus-Serb relations were tested 3-4 times last century. Serbs and the Greeks are the only Europeans who never betrayed us. When 17 European countries including the Croats sent their military units to kill the Russians Serbs (Montenegrins) made 80% of the partisans on the Balkans and 60-70% of all the resistance movement on the continent. They always chosed the Russian side since 1877 ... And it's not their fault that you had your ustashas ...

  12. Johannes Hahn is only spelling out what should have been the criteria for many countries wishing to join the EU, but since Brusselsí eyes were bigger than its stomach there are now big problems where you have too many countries dependent on EU funds to survive. It must be understood that initially accepting countries like Bulgaria or Croatia was not an issue since money was plentiful; then 2008 happened and everything has gone downhill. The EU was scheduled to stop printing money by the end of this month, but now itís December.
    On the issue of Russian influence, Hahn has it wrong. I gather he does not use Russian gas to keep warm or keep his industry going.
    Russian influence will get stronger and stronger in the Balkans and if he thinks investment is going to overcome it then he is mistaken. I heard on radio that recent research has found that eastern Europeans have lost faith in democracy as its failed them and they see themselves only as cheap labour. In particular places like Poland and Hungary.
    Montenegro will NEVER join NATO. John McCain can rant all he wants and call everyone who opposes it in Congress they work for the Russians, but itís not happening. The US is a contacting empire while people like McCain behave like Hitler in the last days of WW2, moving divisions that no longer exist.
