..the "serbs" in Croatia should be lucky to have escaped with their lives for destroying Croatia in the Homeland War instead of wanting serbian cyrallic alphabet to be displayed in Vukovar or anywhere else in Bosnia, Croatia or Kosovo!

Yeah that's kind of offensive and insensitive to the Croats- loads of people died their guys. Its like naming WARSZAWA (Warsaw) into the German version WARSCHAU or Oszwecim back to Auschwitz. Personally, I wouldn't mind Vukovar becoming multi-lingual , as I think it is a good step to re-conciliation but I see the Croats point of view as well :/

What is going on in croatia? This must be some sort of joke.

If you dont like thhe country, dont learn it's language then get out.

It's like for example ethnic groups here in Australia, the Lebanese live mainly in the centre of Sydney, now we put up arabic signs everywhere, people here would be enraged and not allow this to happen, the government would be kicked out and a new one would be in power.

Croatia, wake up to yourselves, the serbs destroyed Vukovar and murdered thousands of people.

After 500 years of Ottomon occupation, you come up with a few serb skirmishesin 1 year only, at the end of the Ottomon empire, well done,thats such a huge effort by the serbs.

Like their attack on Croatia, with bigger numbers and more guns the serbs are a deadly army and I would not f--k with them but match them or come close in numbers and weapons, they shit their pance and run like rabbits, they cant fight.
