Why are the Western countries so biased against Serbia? by Jay Knott (11/16/12)       ⇌ (Yugoslavia)       

During the wars (1991-1999) which led to the breakup of Yugoslavia, the Western countries followed Germany's lead and supported Germany's world war II allies against the USA's wartime ally. For example, they supported Croatia against Serbia.
