Nope, I can see it here too, although a bit less obvious (our leaders wouldn't get away with actual ethnic cleansing, but selling out Sami land to foreign mining companies is still OK).
So what's with pointing out Serbs? I found it really annoying and ironic that after a post of a Bulgarian who laments on the treatment that his people received in their neighbouring countries and saying that is reason enough for his country to invade them and annex some of their territory
you would bash on Serbs.
Please would you go back to the opening post and read what the thread is about in the first place?
When did I said anything about invasion? And why didn't you react at all to the Cyprus sunk or nuked thing? Double standards much.
The time of wars is over, now we should rather act with political means to stop the oppresion. If he had politicians, of course.
Firstly, I would really like to see the source that says that Serbs conducted ethnic cleansing on Bulgarians.
Do you know about Vlado Chernozemski
, or more importantly, why did he join IMRO?
Secondly, don't you know what Bulgarians have been doing to Romas? Turks? Pomaks?
What did we do to Romas? We have never been strict towards them and this is a mistake.
The closest thing we did to ethnic cleansing to Turks living in our territory I can think of was changing of personal names and that didn't last long.
As for Pomaks, they are Bulgarians, why do you even mention them?
I'm not saying there were no oppresions in our country; however they were in totalitarian times and were equally as harsh towards everyone except for the ruling class.
What did they do to the people in neighbouring countries they invaded in WWI and WWII?
They returned them their homeland. Back then we were still a majority.
Thirdly, you do know that his line of thinking is exactly the same as the one that lead to this idea?
I'm not willing to be concerned with the internal issues of Serbs and Croats as long as they are not in harm of Bulgarians.
