1. Vojvodina

    Can you explain what Vojvodina means. As a perspective Serb you must have an answer. But to help you I can say that Vojvoda ajo ishte mė e larta ushtarake titull nė rusisht Hordhi.
    (rote, 3 July 2016 14:41)

    The name was derived from vojvoda - duke. It used to be a part of various empires and was usually inhabited by various peoples, and even Serbian noblemen came to prominence on several occasions. However, we weren't there in significant numbers until Arsenije Carnojevic led us en masse, fearign Ottoman vengeance and made a deal with the Habsburgs (then-owners) to let us live there in exchange for fighting Turks.

    And I have no idea what this thing you wrote means, because for the 1000th time, I'm not Albanian.

    (Nikolle, 1 July 2016 10:39)

    Oh I agree, good riddance to Yugoslavia. But what you may not know is Yugoslavia (and most specifically, Serbia) is responsible for every toilet that was built installed in Kosovo-Metohija pre 1999. In fact, hundreds of thousands of Albanians saw civilization for the very first time when they left Hoxha's Albania and came to Tito's Yugoslavia. I am no fan of that tyrannical regime, but Yugoslavia was club med for you guys. You've never have, and you never will, have a better situation than Yugoslavia.

  12. With statements such as "if Croatia represents a yardstick for joining the EU then we are going in the wrong direction" and "EU's decision was "unacceptable to Serbia" coming from a Foreign Minister and some even more ridiculous ones coming from the President, it's a surprise Serbia is even allowed to go this far in negotiating with civillized nations.

  13. An obvious solution consistent with civilized values is a Serbia- Croatia reunification to enable a truly single national jurisdiction for war crimes, as well as one reunified parliament that provides for the best possible proportional representation for Croats. Problem solved. Croatia gets all it asked for and more.

  14. To Serbia: Go have a drink and go for a swim. When you come back you may find a club that isn't in your interest to join. Don't worry, if you walk away, they will come knocking on your door within 1 month. If they want a stable Balkan, they have no choice but let Serbia in. The other states around Serbia are mostly incompetent (and will stay that way).

    As for Serbia needing to be "taught a lesson" or "made to pay." These are small comments by small minds who get high on retribution instead of clear political thinking. I know a group of teenagers on my block who can formulate stronger political dialogue (and in less words).

    You once tried and even reached Stalingrad but do you remember what happened to th 4-th army? One more question – what is the Romanian for RUSSIAN? Yes it is ROMANA … Thus the Siberian oil is already yours. Be happy that we do not ask for Ploesti oil fields. By the way which of you Moldovans or “Romanilors” have more of the Russian i.e. Romana blood? Moldovans have some 60-70% and so are their names and family names. What about you ? It’s interesting coz after you let the US missiles in your miserable life costs nothing now. No matter what was your GDP or average salary in your previous life.

  20. The minister added that EU's decision was "unacceptable to Serbia" and that he will suggest to PM-designate Aleksandar Vucic to hold urgent consultations on the country's further foreign policy moves, ahead of the July 4 Paris Summit.
    --
    Quite interesting, Vucic recently meets with Russia's and China's presidents, cancels meetings with the EU and US and now Dacic suggests the country review Serbia's next foreign policy moves. All this with rumours that the West is attempting another coloured revolution. I wonder what's around the corner?

  21. It would seem wise for the EU to halt all negotiations with all candidate countries until they know how they are going to deal with the UK's exit and the potential contagion that this might cause. Aside from a large tranche of money Britain had provided, until recently, a good deal of impetus to the enlargement process dating back to John Major's championing of Poland and (then) Czechoslovakia as new members. From Serbia's point of view it would also be wise to wait and see what exactly it is that you are asking to join.

We don't want a country unwilling to reflect on it's bloodthirsty past, we don't want warmongers, we don't want a country in the EU, which doesn't get along with it's neighbors, or which doesn't even respect them. You don't get along with anybody in the Balkans, nobody likes you, and you are unwilling to reflect on it. You just react in your old, well known way. It is only the others fault, never your own fault, and you think the Serbia is the center of the universe and the sun circels around it. There is no majority amongst European countries, and especially not among it's citizens to let you become a member of the EU, for as long as these things won't change. Serb leadership thinks it can fool Europe, and I guess you got the answer today. All of Dadic's huffing and puffing won't help. Serbia has no chance to become a part of the EU before it drasticly changes.

    How is Serbia paying? We were not members of the EU before and we are not members now. Nothing had changed. Besides seeing albanians comment on this issue is ironic since you are no where near neither white shengen nor the EU.

That's a sure fire way to piss off another northern European country and convince them to have their own referendum.
