But, a few thugs, backed by a few people in power, have been enough to suppress the will of the moderate Bosnian Serbs of Teslic, according to expelled Muslims and many Serbs in Teslic itself.
Huskic and others who fled recently said that the 1,700 or so Muslims who managed to hang on in the area during the war rejoiced with local Serbs when the Dayton agreement to end the war was signed last year.
Reminds me of Bosanska Dubica and, on the other side, Bosanska Krupa. Very nice to see that there are some people in RS who feel the same as those who stayed in/moved to the Federation, Yugoboy.
Do you know if the moderate Serbs in Teslic have remained in the city? I know, for example, that from Bijeljina and Zvornik there were almost as many Serb residents who moved to the Federation as Bosniaks and Croats.
There was one story I remember on the news - a Serbian family: Grandparents, parents, like six sons, I think two daughters, all married with children - one of their six sons was married to a Bosniak, and her two children were, of course, mixed. And for those three, the whole family of more than 20 moved to the portion of Doboj in Zenica Canton.
There was also a few stories about six/seven years ago from several villages near Gorazde that wanted to separate from Republika Srpska and have international status like Brcko. The request was denied, on all sides - but the residents of one village dynamited a road leading into it from the RS, and built another heading towards Gorazde.
I like this article because it talks about how there is Moderate serbs in Teslic, and it really was only "thugs" that wanted to destroy the city. Yes there are Many Moderate serbs living in the city. The only ones that are not moderate are the serbs that have come to teslic, from other cities in Bosnia. They don't even know anything about Teslic, or What Teslic was. I think that is the problem. All real People from Teslic, are moderate because it was always a Multi-ethnic city.
-About what you said for Serbs leaving as much as muslims from Bijeljina and Zvornik to Federation
Why would Serbs leave to the Federation?.. I mean not that big of a difference. Try going to Zenica, Tuzla, and other cities.. see how much they will love serbs.
I'm aware; Ljdia's shared a few of her travelling stories with me. I suppose they decided to take their lumps and stand for their principles. I mean, if I had been living in Zenica during the war, I'd have left - I'd have been driven out probably. Hahaha...but I wouldn't still be there today, and I certainly wouldn't have been there in the summer of 1996.
Here are some new pictures taken of Teslic, on July 10, 2005! They are not the best pictures, and the horrible weather didn't help! I will keep updating with new pictures, and hopfully the weather in Bosnia becomes better!

Having seen all these pictures of Teslic and knowing that most of them had been shot by me, why do I think that yugoboy is the one with the yellow bike by the Radnja church
Or should I say: Поставићу ти три тешка питања...
