So this thing is happening.

I’ve mentioned Bosnia and Herzegovina on this blog before, but recently there’s been a very important update which is easy to miss with all the media watching the crisis in the Crimea. The European Union would prefer that we focus on the Crimea and ignore this historical uprising that has been going on since February of this year.  They’d rather us not know that after less than a week of protest, the European High Official for the country was threatening to send more European troops.  Their control of BiH was predicated on the Dayton peace agreement, and the idea that these people could not get along without foreign occupation and intervention. This relationship was supposed to bring peace and unity to BiH. Now it has brought unity among the three major ethnic groups, and they are rising up against their EU-approved government. So the answer apparently was “send troops.”
