BBC: The chief international envoy to Bosnia, Lord Ashdown, says he has sacked the Croat member of Bosnia's tripartite joint presidency. Dragan Covic, accused of serious corruption, had refused to step down. He is the third member of Bosnia's presidency to be forced out under international pressure since the Office of the High Representative was set up. Lord Ashdown oversees implementation of the Dayton accords that ended the 1992-95 Bosnia war.
So let's get this straight: 10 years after the Dayton Accords were signed the EU is STILL ruling over Bosnia with ABSOLUTE POWER.
HOW DARE THE LEFTIES OF OLD EUROPE criticize our efforts in Iraq - where, in two years we have instituted democratic self-rule. Especially considering that compared to Iraq, Bosnia is a tiny nation. Here're the facts - you compare:
Bosnia = 51,000 sq km; POP.: 4 million - surrounded by EU countries.By comparison our accomplishment in Iraq is a HUGE SUCCESS! Heck; our Iraq efforts are a huge success even when compared to post-WW2 Germany and Japan!
Iraq = 435,000 sq km; POP.: 25 million - surrounded by unstable nations.
So the next time you hear any criticism of Iraq from the euroweenie Left: just say BOSNIA and flip them the bird!
