i'm sure you would have the same hatred toward your fellow Englishmen that carry out in such a way or Serb Cetniks as well.

Krajina Serbs saved the rest of Croatia from Turkish occupation
Same as Serbian victories over Bulgarians in 1st Balkan war and 2nd Balkan war and World War 1 and World War 2 saved Croats from Bulgarian occupation

Battle of Velbazhd was in Bulgaria, no where near Croatia. Croatia saved the Serbs during the Croat-Bulgar wars of the 9th-10th centuries. Croat forces with little outside help beat the Turks in battles such as at Sisak , the croatian frontier protected the rest of Europe from Turkish expansion before the Balkan war. Also, Croatia allowed Serb refugees facing persecution to settle on the frontiers.

Corrections: Most of the battles the Croatians were defeated that you linked were against Hungarians, not Turks and Bulgarians like we disscussed. You also put the medieval 9th/10th century Bulgar-Croat war as a croat defeat, it was technically inconclusive, but the Croats won the majority of and it was the bulgarians who withdrew peacefully. Also battles mean nothing, the point is that croatia was never ruled by the bulgarians, Serbia was conquered twice by them from 1371-the Ottomans arrived. Also, only parts of Croatia came under Ottoman occupation, and Croatia still existed as a kingdom. Serbia was ruled by the Ottomans from 1386-1815 and even then the Serbs weren't truly rid of the Turks until the Balkan war.

Croatia was conquered by Bulgaria 3 times and Croatia was conquered by Ottoman Turks and Hungarians as well

Turkish rule was from 1540 to 1804 and not from 1386 to 1815

Two noted sieges, Croats fighting against a numerically superior force and giving them a run for their money. Victory achieved by the Turks was a pyrrhic one.
If you're trying to prove croats to be cowards through examples provided, you're very dumb. Most other people would have surrendered against such odds or better still,(like in the case of the serbs), their wives would have become belly dancers for their turkish masters for 5 centuries
