  1. …we can all notice when Croatian athletes win medals (gold, silver,bronze or others), you don’t see “Croatian” politicians (Mesic,Josipovic,Milanovic, Pusic, chetnik Jovanovic et al.) greet the Croats at Zagreb airport nor any other ceremonies!
    But when the serbians win medals, all their (chetnik) politicians and their serbian orthodox priests join in on the celebrations! What is wrong with the croat politicians?…And Josipovic is still the most popular politician in Croatia!
    ……well maybe Croatians get the kind of government they deserve!
