look at their struggle for survival in afghanistan. and as the credits roll on shorts and eggers moscow visit we bring you the best scenes from the governor's russian capital adventure. but first all sides an ethnically diverse bosnia must work together and embrace political reform if they want nato and e.u. membership that's the warning from u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton during her visit to the balkans many balls and muslims in croats want a strong central government but serves living in the country fear this will rob them of their autonomy serbs also believe the u.s. keeps putting pressure on them and resentment lingers over the nato forces joining the ninety's ethnic conflict on the side of a muslim population and bombing the capital sarajevo before more of clinton's visit to the balkans we're now joined from washington by. thank you for being with us this hour why do serbs oppose integration so much. well
10:07 am
it's the issue of the war was fought over in the first place back in one thousand nine hundred two it was the attempt by the muslim leadership to create a strong central government it was the muslims who are not an outright majority in the country would be dominant and this is the issue that the war was fought over the inability of the three communities to actually have some sort of power sharing arrangement that they could trust each other each other and the muslims had pushed through the independence proposal unilaterally and had basically neglected the serbs and croats shove them off it aside and said this is this is our country now and the serbs and croats would have none of it and we had three and a half years of open warfare with a hundred thousand people dead and this is a very very significant issue in bosnia and it is not just going to go away because somebody decrees it needs to. come back in one thousand nine hundred ninety six clinton visited bosnia and said that she had to land under sniper fire but we sought peaceful greetings at the airport do you think that clinton had reasons to
10:08 am
keep tensions simmering at the time. well i'm not really sure when she made that statement i think the statement was made in a memoir during an electoral campaign a few years later just to make things more dramatic can make her appear more brave or important than she really was by the time she landed in one thousand nine hundred six there were no had been no hostilities for months so everybody is well aware that her story was just entirely fake the united states government has been keeping the tension simmering because of this constant repetitive insistence on creating a strong central government which is. not only a problem that caused a war to begin with but a problem because the date and constitution the peace treaty it at the united states wrote is explicitly against a strong central government so we have a situation which the united states is running a policy it's contrary to the treaty that it had designed for you thing that you

think the u.s. has created another puppet state on the continent. i would quote of this occasion the words of a former representative tom lantos who's passed away a few years ago but back in two thousand and seven during a hearing at the state congress with the state department officials he was saying that jihad ists of all colors and hues in the world need to take note that we are once again creating is the islamic state in the heart of europe he was referring to kosovo but the once again was an unmistakable reference to bosnia i think the united states tried to create a client state in bosnia that would compensate for the conflicts with the muslim world elsewhere and they could point to it and say look here's a country in which we help the muslims you should be grateful to us it hasn't really worked well so far but they refuse to acknowledge a mistake now with nato forces were targeting the former yugoslav military some of the bombs hit civilian targets embassies in belgrade markets in serbia refugee
10:10 am
camps we've heard no of this so apologies do you think that will ever happen. i don't think the united states government will ever willingly issue an apology for any of its actions now some say the serbian government is trading the country's past for future e.u. membership do you think serbs agree with that. i think this sunday riots and saturday's peaceful demonstration involved ten thousand people are proof enough the current serbian government has very little support and even less legitimacy among the people of serbia i think it's the people of serbia want to better life they want to freely trade and communicate with everybody else but at that the price of their dignity or their culture or their country serbian historian new bugs from washington d.c. thank you very much for your input there. now they're only young boys who are forced to become the man of the house years of war in afghanistan have robbed an entire generation of their fathers and left deep scars on the country are just
