NOTE: Interesting comment to the article in the second link:
“Aside from derailing every effort that might have prevented the war in the first place, The International Community’s gift to Bosnia (via the OHR) was the largest and most wasteful government on Earth. Per capita – 4 million people (especially those on the “Federation” side – another State Department disaster) have more unaccountable and non elected officials (careerist thieves one and all) getting a pay check and perks for telling the country, entity, canton and municipality what to do, how to do it and how much to pay for it than a nation with twenty times the population.
The Republika Srpska is, for whatever other faults it may have, a model of streamlined public efficiency by comparison – it’s no wonder that they don’t wish to trade the moderate success of their public administration and growing economy for the stagnant corruption of the kleptocracy that runs the show from West Mostar and Sarajevo.”
Sounds more and more like Belgium, in which the more efficient and product half, the Flems, support the welfare sponges of Walloonia.
