Happy Birthday, Croatia!

Some people feel that the partition of Yugoslavia was a wonderful thing -- as was the "divorce" of Czechoslovkia. And the possible partition of Iraq (there is SERIOUS talk of an independent country for the Kurds, at the very least).

Some people feel that only a jhomogeneous nation can truly be a happy nation. That is why, I hear, there is a gentle debate going on in Japan. Although the Japanese population is shrinking, many Japanese feel that opening their beautiful, orderly, and mostly crime-free country to ladies and gentlemen from other countries would be most unwise.

Happy The Statehood Day! Croatia & Croatian People!



23 years ago, on 25 June 1991, the Croatian Parliament delivered a constitutional decision on the independence and sovereignty of the Republic of Croatia, declaring Croatia an independent State.

I doubt if the thousands who were made homeless, tortured and killed during the break-up of Yugoslavia would agree.

It is possible that the states that emerged independent will benefit long-term from the break up, and one wishes them well, but I find it hard to think of the partition (as it was) a 'wonderful' thing.
