Ex CIA chief on Balkans Steven Meyer: Border changes may happen in Kosovo and Macedonia

In an interview for the Serbian media "Novosti", he says the borders will most likely be changed in Macedonia as well as in Kosovo. Speaking of the situation in the region, Meyer says: "Bosnia and Herzegovina is now far from being a united country. The Kosovo issue is becoming more serious, while Macedonia is declining seriously for months." Asked what fate awaits Macedonia, he says: "If Montenegro and Kosovo can prove the independence, Macedonia will also be able to. But perhaps this would not be the best way to deal with Macedonia. In this case, they will also consider the federal union with Serbia." Speaking of the situation in Bosnia, Meyer says that after resignation of the indictment against Serbia, Bosnia may become unstable.

My first reaction to these ideas would simply be: "No! " No drawing of new borders in the Balkans. New borders would only bring even more instability to the region. If Serbs in Croatia had no right to draw new borders on ethnic principles, and it was OK for Croatia to wipe them out in 1995, then this principle of no ethnic borders should be followed consistently.

If anyone wants to make Balkan a stable region, here is the only logical and just solution, and also the most simple one.

We must bring ourselves back into the 1918, when the Kingdom of Serbs Croats and Slovenes was formed, and renamed the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929. Since the three constitutional peoples have united in 1918 - if Slovenes and Croats have left the union in 1991 - then the rest of the former union remains Serbian. That would mean the current states of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, and Montenegro.

We must also consider these facts.

Montenegro is a state which is the most Serbian of all of these. Montenegro is a part of the Medieval Serbian state that had never been conquered by the Ottoman Turks, and so its statehood as a Serbian land has the roots in the early Middle Ages, and even most likely in the antiquity. Yugoslav communists have tried to create a new Montenegrin people since 1944, in order to weaken the Serbian element in Yugoslavia.

The entire geographical region of Macedonia was liberated from the Ottoman Turks in the Balkan War of 1912. Greeks and Bulgarians have kept their part of Macedonia since then, while the Serbian part of Macedonia is now an independent state. It is injustice to the Serbian war efforts and sacrifices in the Balkan War of 1912. It is a consequence of the work of the Yugoslav communists since 1944 to create a new Macedonian people, in order to weaken the Serbian influence in Yugoslavia again. FYR Macedonia can't survive as an independent state, because of their problems with rebellious Albanian national minority, and Greece not recognizing their Macedonian name.

Bosnia has its statehood tradition from the Middle Ages, but it was a Christian country back then, before the Muslim Turkish conquerors came. Today, Bosnia and Herzegovina can't survive as a unified and sovereign nation, that is more than obvious. Bosnian Muslims make a little less than 50% of its population, but they want to create an unitarian Bosnia as a Muslim state, which is an impossible goal. Bosnian Serbs want to join Serbia, and Bosnian Croats want to join Croatia. Since Bosnian Muslim political goals are impossible to achieve, and Bosnia can't truly exist as an independent state, then the best solution for them would be to join Serbia, so that the Bosnian Muslim population is united again with their fellow Muslims in Serbia, Macedonia, and Montenegro. They are very well aware that Serbs are the most tolerant people in the Balkans, and that they would not have any troubles.

Speaking of Albania, it doesn't have any rights to interfere into the issues of the former Yugoslavia, they simply have nothing to do with it. Albanians are also currently the greatest factor of instability in the Balkans.

The next year marks a hundred years of the Entente victory in the WWI, and so maybe it is the perfect time to finally discuss and achieve some stable and long lasting solution to the Balkan crisis. And a stable and long lasting solution can be achieved only on just and rightful bases. Serbia doesn't need to beg for respect, we have earned the respect by giving 1,300,000 of our lives for the Entente victory in WWI. We can only demand from our allies - United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, and other Entente members - to bring us back what is ours. We were also victorious in the WWII, while the Croats, Bosnian Muslims, and Albanians, were fighting for the Nazis, so they can't possibly have any political arguments to support their side, except for pathetically trying to invent a Serbian genocide over them during the Yugoslav civil war of 1990s.
