Just quick answer to "the Patriot" and my look on his frustration:
Croatians are very jellous to Slovenians on our great achievements. We join the EU group already in 2004 and in all "country" achievements like trade, quality of life - standard, beautifull environment etc we are much in front of croatia. At the end of the day, Slovenia leeds the EU in first 6-months in 2008 and we got only positive feed back on our work for that. For country with 2 milion people that is good proof that we are on right way.

Slovenia is still 10 years in front of Croatia. Proof is that Croatia even in 2008/2009 don`t reach all the objectives which needs to be achieve to enter in EU group. They will probably (but still not for sure) enter in 2012, which is 8 years after Slovenia. So something is "wanna be" and other is what you are in fact. And Croatia is still pure Balkan country. Many of details are proving this.

And that is their frustration. Croatians wanna be Slovenians, but their life productivity are still attached to balkans standards, also corruption are still very high, environment for foreigh firms are not friendly etc. That needs to be changed if they wanna be part of EU family. And this are words of high EU diplomacy, not mine.
