This is a post transferred from my old site. The Bosniak leadership was discussing amending the Bosnian Constitution (aka - The Dayton Accords).
The Bosniaks are lucky that my fears have not been realized ... yet!

When my grandfather and I were watching video footage of Mladic taking the Bosniak males away on buses, he had two comments:
1. "It's not fair".
2. "The Serbs are making the Germans happy, because when any European thinks of fascists, they will think of Serbia!
In Bosnia, Catholics are Croatians, Orthodox are Serbians and Muslims are Bosniaks. This gives Bosnia a certain symmetry which makes it easier to discuss a very complicated political situation .
The Bosniaks are making a huge mistake to try to change the Bosnian constitution for Srebrenica, which to me, seems totally beside the point.
The Bosniaks first mistake was to go along with the independence of Slovenia and Croatia. Their second mistake is to not voice objection to the independence of Kosovo. Bosniaks must realize that they will be the immediate losers if Kosovo gets independence, because what's good for Kosovo is good for Republica Srpbska, not to mention Herzegovina.
Watch for the US/EU to start criticizing the Bosniaks, in the press, as being obstructionist and not willing to compromise. Then you will know that betrayal is in the air.
Calls for Srebrenica secession follow ICJ ruling
"In the aftermath of the ruling, Bosniak leaders are calling for Srebrenica to secede from the Bosnian Serb entity, Republika Srpska (RS).
'The territory of the Srebrenica municipality needs to have the status of district and as such should be taken out of the jurisdiction of the Republika Srpska institutions,' the Bosniak and Croat members of the BiH presidency, Haris Silajdzic and Zeljko Komsic, said in a statement. 'We are entitled to justice.'"
