Croatia did not want Europe to be divided as to the start of Croatia's EU entry talks.

If Croatia starts righting communist wrongs beyond international accords that have solved those problems, I have every reason to believe this will threaten the very functioning of the state.

I think we can find a formula that would be to everyone's satisfaction, which would make it possible for Croatia to take some more steps and for Europe to accept us into its midst, and for the talks to start.

The army did what Milosevic's regime asked of it, which was to create a 'Greater Serbia'.

He was driven by the idea that when Milosevic grabs a part of Bosnia, Croatia should get a piece of it, too.
