When the balloon went up in Bosnia, jihadis from around the world came to defend their "fellow" Muslims. Those jihadis brought with them strange and extreme ideas.

Militarily, their contribution was at best questionable, but they were responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the war.

No side there was completely innocent; there were bad eggs in every basket. But, it is quite disgusting how disproportionately the Serbs got blamed, and how Serbia has since been dismembered under threat of international force, giving Kosovo to ethnic Albanian organized crime.

The world is a shabby and dangerous place these days.
