Music used: Per Kiilstofte - Rallying the Defense Per Kiilstofte - Battle of Kings The Bosnian War was an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1995. Following a number of violent incidents in early 1992, the war is commonly viewed as having started on 6 April 1992. The war ended on 14 December 1995. The main belligerents were the forces of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and those of the self-proclaimed Bosnian Serb and Bosnian Croat entities within Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Herzeg-Bosnia, who were led and supplied by Serbia and Croatia respectively. The war was part of the breakup of Yugoslavia. Following the Slovenian and Croatian secessions from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1991, the multi-ethnic Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was inhabited by mainly Muslim Bosniaks (44 percent), mainly Orthodox Serbs (32.5 percent) and mainly Catholic Croats (17 percent), passed a referendum for independence on 29 February 1992. This was rejected by the political representatives of the Bosnian Serbs, who had boycotted the referendum and established their own republic. Following Bosnia and Herzegovina's declaration of independence (which gained international recognition), the Bosnian Serbs, supported by the Serbian government of Slobodan Milošević and the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA), mobilised their forces inside the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to secure Serb territory, then war soon spread across the country, accompanied by the ethnic cleansing of the Bosniak Muslim and Croat population, especially in eastern Bosnia and throughout the Republika Srpska. It was principally a territorial conflict, initially between the Serb forces mainly organised in the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) on the one side, and the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBiH) which was largely composed of Bosniaks, and the Croat forces in the Croatian Defence Council (HVO) on the other side. The Croats also aimed at securing parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina as Croatian. The Serb and Croat political leadership had agreed on a partition of Bosnia with the Karađorđevo and Graz agreements, resulting in the Croat forces turning against the ARBiH and the Croat–Bosniak war. The Bosnian War was characterised by bitter fighting, indiscriminate shelling of cities and towns, ethnic cleansing and systematic mass rape, mainly perpetrated by Serb, and to a lesser extent, Croat forces and Bosniak forces. Events such as the Siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica massacre later became iconic of the conflict. The Serbs, although initially superior due to the weapons and resources provided by the JNA, eventually lost momentum as the Bosniaks and Croats allied themselves against the Republika Srpska in 1994 with the creation of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina following the Washington agreement. After the Srebrenica and Markale massacres, NATO intervened in 1995 with Operation Deliberate Force targeting the positions of the Army of the Republika Srpska, which proved key in ending the war. The war was brought to an end after the signing of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina in Paris on 14 December 1995. Peace negotiations were held in Dayton, Ohio and were finalised on 21 November 1995. According to a report compiled by the UN, and chaired by M. Cherif Bassiouni, while all sides committed war crimes during the conflict, Serbian forces were responsible for ninety percent of them, whereas Croatian forces were responsible for six percent, and Bosniak forces four percent. The report echoed conclusions published by a Central Intelligence Agency estimate in 1995. By early 2008, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia had convicted 45 Serbs, 12 Croats and 4 Bosniaks of war crimes in connection with the war in Bosnia.[needs update] The most recent estimates suggest that around 100,000 people were killed during the war. Over 2.2 million people were displaced, making it the most devastating conflict in Europe since the end of World War II. In addition, an estimated 12–20,000 women were raped.
Shit video just an idea I got all of a sudden and I had to make it a reality
People: “You live in Europe, where?” Me: “in Croatia” People: “What’s a Croatia??” Me: “What? It’s a country, in Europe… OMG” I am not surprised to find that more Europeans know about Miami than Americans know about Zagreb, especially since one of Croatia’s national television channels is currently broadcasting the eighth season of the popular Crime Scene Investigation show CSI: Miami. As far as I have seen there haven’t been any shows filmed around Zagreb being broadcasted in Miami so the general public is clueless about the whereabouts of the city in which I live in now. Also, from my middle school and high school recollection I did not have that many geography or history lessons that were concentrated on Europe as much as Europeans are pressured to learn about the United States. In fact, other than my personal choice to take European history in high school I wouldn’t have gotten very much exposure. Therefore, other than my friends and acquaintances who have heard of Croatia because of association through me and my travels, the common reaction when I tell someone that I am living in Croatia has been, “What is a Croatia?”. Similarly, some Croatians have thought of Miami as a state in the United States, rather than I city in the state of Florida, but that is nowhere near as erroneous as mistaking Croatia for an object rather than a location on the continent of Europe. In this episode I am looking at a world map and showing exactly how far each place is from the city in which I was born, Los Angeles, to the states in which I lived in, North Carolina and Florida, without forgetting the years I spent in Jamaica and one year in Canada before moving to Zagreb in Croatia. Not only are these places far apart from one another geographically, but there are also distinct differences in culture, language and climate as well. Miami, like most people already know, has a sizzling hot climate all year around, with densely populated beaches and local citizens walking around in bikinis and bathing suits in the middle of December. Canada on the other hand, suffers an everlasting snowy, winter climate for about 5 to 6 months out of the year – at least that’s how it was when I was there – and Croatia, where I am now, experiences roughly moderate climate changes with smooth transitions through all the seasons inland, but is much warmer on the coast where there is sunshine going into December almost like in Florida (but without the humidity). One of the greatest things about Croatia is that for such a small country it has many different levels of culture and climate to offer. The inland being filled with rich crops and meat loving residents who are closer associated with Slovenians and Hungarians than they are with the seafood eating inhabitants of the coast who were influenced by the Italians. With a population slightly over 4 million for the whole country its size is not comparable with the population of the single state of Florida which bridges 19.5 million. And driving from one end of Croatia to the other would take about as long as it would to drive from one end of Florida to the other, 8-10 hours. Travelling between continents by plane is not short cut either of course, with a daunting 8-10 hours needed to cross the Atlantic Ocean and the 2-3 hours to get from one country to another within Europe. Here I also talk about some of the travelling I have done throughout Europe, excluding my latest travels which included going to Bulgaria, Bosnia, Scotland and Poland. But those experiences have a long story behind them which will be explained in the next series of episodes to come J
