Bosnian deadlock, by Slavisa Batko Milacic

Today’s Bosnia and Herzegovina is the result of the Dayton Agreement. An agreement that ended the war, but did not offer a better future for the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

What’s more, it is the reason for the permanent conflict between the constituent nations of Serbs, Bosnians, and Croats. 

One of the most basic principles on which the Dayton Agreement was based on is the division of Bosnia and Herzegovina (51% of the territory to the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 49% to Republika Srpska), which was agreed on by the so-called contact group. Republika Srpska is under strong pressure from the west, which wants to overtly destroy it.

President of Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, who is a powerful figure, has found support in Russia for the Republic’s survival. While Republika Srpska is seeking a path to independence, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially Bosnians, are seeking a unitary state. 

As for the Croats, they would also like to separate and be one country with Croatia, and if they cannot obtain that, they would like to have one entity. It is important to know that Bosnians and Croats are under strong US control.

One of the biggest problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina today is the issue of security. The common security services in Bosnia and Herzegovina are dysfunctional. The remains of the radical criminal El Mujahedeen Islamist movement, which fought for Bosnians during the war, still exist in Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

There are 46 camps in Bosnia and Herzegovina where terrorists are trained. At the same time, 6 terrorists from Guantanamo returned to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and are under weak measures of control. Among them is an expert in explosives - Tariq Mohmoud Ahmed al Savah. All of this is a threat, not only to Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also to the whole of Europe.

Nothing has been done to prevent money laundering, which is used for financing terrorism, and this is one of the most important things in the fight against terrorism. There are no financial or security operations to cut the stream of funding to Wahhabi settlements and fictitious non governmental and educational organizations, nor do we have control over Waqf Bank, whose majority owner is Yasin al-Qadi, a person on the list of terrorist financers, even at the UN. 

The number of fighters from Bosnia and Herzegovina in Syria is false - officially it is 124, but in reality it is over 350. The propaganda that is promoted in the Islamism magazine “SAFF” is not prevented, and the organizers of the material are officers from the criminal El Mujahedeen. Nothing is being done to prevent radicals from departing the Syrian battlefield. 

As a result, today in Bosnia and Herzegovina there are approximately 100,000 radicalized Muslims.

If it is known that the Bosnian elite is under the strong control of the West, which raises the question why the West tolerates this. However, the answer is simple: for the West, Serbs are Balkan Russians, therefore they must constantly be under pressure until they become an insignificant political and military factor in the Balkans. 

Because of this fact, the West “does not see” the radical Islamization of Bosnia and Herzegovina. But Republika Srpska understands the situation very well, and has begun to take decisive action.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Republika Srpska and the Moscow Police agreed that the Russian police would assist in the training of Special Forces from Republika Srpska, using one of the Russian special units. Republika Srpska intends to set up a reserve police force so that they will be able to respond to all challenges. 

A continuation of cooperation does not exclude the possibility that Russia could establish a center for emergency situations and rapid interventions, such as the one in Serbia. And that’s exactly why the West welcomed the agreement very angrily. 

An example of this can be seen in the duplicity of the West - especially the US. While the US opens military bases around the world, many against the will of the local population, at the same time they want to prohibit Russia from opening humanitarian centers. 

By pursuing the above, we can expect a continuation of tense relations in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
