Austria-Hungary, struggling for a port on the Adriatic and seeking ways for expansion in the south at the expense of the Ottoman Empire, was totally opposed to any other nation's expansion in the area. At the same time, the Habsburg empire had its own internal problems with significant Slav populations that campaigned against German-Hungarian control of the multinational state. Serbia, whose aspirations in the direction of Austrian-held Bosnia were no secret, was considered an enemy and the main tool of Russian machinations that were behind the agitation of Austria's Slav subjects. But Austria-Hungary failed to secure German backup for a firm reaction. Initially, Emperor Wilhelm II told the Archduke Franz Ferdinand that Germany was ready to support Austria in all circumstances—even at the risk of a world war, but the Austro-Hungarians hesitated. Finally, in the German Imperial War Council of 8 December 1912 the consensus was that Germany would not be ready for war until at least mid-1914 and passed notes to that effect to the Habsburgs. Consequently no actions could be taken when the Serbs acceded to the Austrian ultimatum of 18 October and withdrew from Albania.

Princip is a Serb national hero who defended and liberated his nation from foreign rule and gained independence for the Serb nation!

The losing Austo-Hungo empire was in disarray and either way Austria would of started World War 1 which they did on Serbia which was just an excuse,either way World War 1 was going to happen.

Austria lose everything Serbia won as a results Austria-Hungry empire became half the size of present day Serbia,which includes Serb lands of Serbia(Vojodina & Kosovo) Montenegro and Srpska BiH

History can not be re written, facts remains facts whether our enemies like it or not:-)

Long live union of Serb states!!!

At the time of Gavrilo Princip, Bosnian Muslims were on the same side with Serbs against foreign occupiers AustroHungary.

Members of Mlada Bosna society were Muslims too, and even some Croats.

Muhamed Mehmedbašic (1886 – 29 May 1943) was a Bosniak revolutionary and conspirator in the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.
The first conspirator on the route to see the royal car was Muhammed Mehmedbašic, but Mehmedbašic did not take action. Mehmedbašic later said that a policeman was standing behind him and he feared he would be arrested before he had a chance to throw his bomb.
Later that day the Archduke and his wife were assassinated by Gavrilo Princip.

Mehmedbašic managed to escape to Montenegro. However, before he was extradited he escaped from his prison in Nikšic two days later. The Habsburg authorities suspected Montenegrin collusion in his escape and arrested the gendarmes who guarded Mehmedbašic.

After the First World War Mehmedbašic returned to Sarajevo and in 1919 was pardoned for his role in the assassination. Muhamed Mehmedbašic was killed by the Ustaše on 29 May 1943, during the Second World War.
