In Southern Croatia, near delightful, historic Dubrovnik, a spot now so peaceful but in a region marred by Pavelic and his Ustashe pro-nazi savagery from 1941 to 1945, when Jew, Gypsy, and Serb Orthodox were massacred, and when Balkan Muslims were recruited for 2 Nazi SS Divisions - by the Palestinian Arab leader, Husseini, the UK-installed Mufti of Jerusalem, a hero of Arafat, and also fomentor [ with Saddam's uncle among others ] of the pro-nazi April 1941 **Golden Square** plot of Rashid Ali in Baghdad. This lovely region was again savaged by Milosevic and his Serb-based tribal gang from 1991 to 2001.
On both occasions, peace was eventually enforced only by superior force - deployed by the defenders of freedom. And also far too late on each occasion.
