Please read what I wrote. I am self Bosnian so don`t give me stories of how hard war is, what hapend in Kosovo is nothing compared to Bosnia,(10 times more people died in BiH then in Kosovo), I wrote what I wrote, note this NO COMENTS about serb butchers,muslim fundametalists, albanian terorists and croatian nazis, so please shut up.
And again no big talk about war, nature of war and so on just post pictures.
I don't believe the term civil strife, should be used in the case of the former Yugoslavia. If you remember correctly, the republics of Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia declared independence as a move that was granted by the Yugoslav constitution. In fact the republics pressed for more autonomy within the Confederacy, but in the end declared independence as Serbia did not seem to hold any arguments against it.
Of course, the majority of the Serb parliament did not mind the secession of the former republics but it was Milosevic and his cell of militarists that began plotting a take over. Soon after the declaration, Milosevic pressed his military aids to create rebel groups inside the former republics in order to give him a reason to invade. Once the police began fighting these Serb rebels, Milosevic had his "justification" to invade, in order to "unite" all the oppressed Serb's in the other republics.
Therefore, it was an illegal action by the Serb government in a already defunct confederation. Therefore he was not doing it as a way to unite back Yugoslavia but more or less was doing it to expand Serb borders. Therefore it was a nationalistic war, and not a civil war as some claim.
So true!!! I don't agree with the title of the thread itself, but I don't mind anymore, just keep posting pictures.

Those are some good pictures, most of which I probably wouldn't have seen if it weren't for this thread. I only wish ***** images places a smaller logo in the corner instead of right in the middle. Oh well, thanks!
I think i know the place where this exhibition is.
Its on the road behind Karlovac when you drive to the Plitvice National Park. Behind a small river. First years after war this was the most destroyed surroundings of a bridge i saw. But now all is clean and build up again.

It means "Armata Kombetare Shqipetare"...which translates to Albanian National Army (in english it is ANA). They are a more hardcore group of ex-KLA fighters who didn't disarm but continued their operations underground. They fought in Macedonia as well as Preshev. Now they are mostly rearming for any coming events. They are not very big, pretty small when compared to KLA and NLA, but are more specialized towards special operations.
