The Krajina is a depopulated wasteland as a result of the murderous clearance of the Krajina Serb nation by the Croatian military, yet Zagreb's unwillingness to allow the return of the Krajina Serbs, even though they would not pose a threat to Croatia's sovereignty, has yielded only mild diplomatic rebukes. The EU bears a special responsibility for Croatia's new-found ethnic purity. But the ultimate irony is that the Krajina and Bosnian Serbs were not allowed to remain part of Yugoslavia because Tito's administrative lines were decreed to be inviolable. Now the EU is encouraging the establishment of a Greater Albania. So much for the frontier between Serbia and Albania dating back to 1912.
