Re: Djokovic, Milosevic, Republika Sprska contd.
I couldn't care less about papa Djokovic. Is this a thread about him? I think that the OP in the GM thread wanted to point out that papa Djokovic disrespected the independence and sovereignty of Bosnia by visiting Srpska and saying he felt they were still one country and one people. You should know that there is a strong anti-Serbian sentiment, especially in the region, maybe comparable to anti-German sentiment in some parts of Europe after the WW2. But there are not just two sides, try to imagine many tribes and their chiefs locked in one small piece of land, fighting over petty things, and seeing their happiness in demise of other tribes rather than in their own growth, with lots of fear and distrust involved. Since Novak Djokovic seems to be representing one of the tribes he must be evil by definition. And everything coming from Serbia or having to do with Serbs must somehow be linked to war. This is a very strong need, like a strong drug, an addiction.
On the other hand, by admitting to disliking Djokovic, you can be perceived as a supporter of the anti-Serbian tribes by some Serbs. Look, my problem is that I detest people who enjoy watching this Balkan Horror show, eating popcorn, doing nothing to stop the nonsense but instead fueling it further. I don't refer to you here. This is your first lesson on the Balkans, more to follow if you are an enthusiastic student.
