Mila said:The thing I remember most about Macedonia was the attitude towards conflict, Timur & Yugoboy...in general, I mean, not a specific view of any aspect of our war.
They remind me of Italians in Macedonia. "So, it's shit? Well, then it's shit. What's crying going to go? What's fighting going to do? Still shit, and less to enjoy it. So sit back."
Love their attitude.
I thought it was because Macedonia is Orthodox Christian country and Serbs couldnt fight against another fellow Christian Orthodox country.Mila said:The same way Slovenia did. The war only took place, in a severe sense, in areas - outside of Serbia - where large numbers of Serbs lived. Slovenia and Macedonia's Serbian populations were so small that there was no one to fight them. The Serbian Army did still attack Slovenia, but was driven away in 10 days.
There was, however, a similar problem in Macedonia with the Albanian minority. Things became very tense for a short time, but Macedonia handled it in a mature, humane way - and the two sides have found a peace that is acceptible to both.
