A broad autonomy of Republika Srpska (RS), up until the degree of complete independence within a confederate Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), is RS's goal which has the support of the people, RS President Milorad Dodik has stated.

A broad autonomy of Republika Srpska (RS), up until the degree of complete independence within a confederate Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), is RS's goal which has the support of the people, RS President Milorad Dodik has stated.

"Bosnia, such as it is, cannot exist. It must begin talks on a different internal organization. Bosnia can survive as a territorially united country, but with strong confederate units and a broad autonomy of RS, all the way to full independence within BiH. That is our further goal, for which we have the support of the people," Dodik said in an interview for the Belgrade-based daily Vecernje Novosti.

"We will require to be given back our jurisdictions, as well as the transfer of decision making to lower levels. If the goal is to preserve Bosnia, that is the only way to do that," Dodik said.

He stated that the military, monetary, foreign policy, and several other sectors can remain at the level of BiH.

"Everything else is unsustainable, because a centralist Bosnia, in which the Muslims dominate, cannot survive.

An ethnically clean Sarajevo, which, according to estimates, has a 94-percent Muslim population, best proves how they (Bosniaks) imagine a multiethnic romance," Dodik said.

He believes that every day there are less and less those in BiH who oppose RS's independence, adding that the inability to form executive authority confirms the claim that the state such as it is is not viable.

The Bosnian Serbs have bought the lie of people such as Dodik that their independence lies in separation. Come the day their children will ask them upon what does their independence 'lie'. They are Bosnian Serbs and have a proud heritage as such, the actions of the nationalist extremists have sullied their reputation and continue to do so with their belief that coexistence is a fool's dream. More fool them.

Bosnia being a microcosm of Yugoslavia and we all know what happened to that nation it is logical to believe the eventually the RS will gain its independence from BiH. Muslim Bosniaks have a hatred of serbs that is thinly veiled, they only want political domination of the other constituent peoples. The serbs are having none of that and I can't blame them, they have no stake in its continued survival, no one in RS will shed a tear for its demise. BiH is headed towards a divorce, let's just hope its amicable.

To say that Bosnians have a hatred of Serbs is absurd. However you can't really blame them for holding a grudge considering the sheer scale of the atrocities that were committed by the Serbs. All the population seek is a stable country with a centralized government as should be expected within any country. Unfortunately RS is a state within a country which was created through genocide and ethnic cleansing of a majority, which in the end was rewarded with a partition of the country. RS need to take heed of Serbia's commitment to join the EU and turn their backs on the nationalist values, as they no longer have a place in the 21st century and are counter-productive.

After mujaheddins killing innocent Serbs and cutting their heads off, after Sarajevo being ethnically cleansed, after Srebrenica muslims massacred Serbs in Bratunac and surrounding villages, it is not normal to force Serbs in the same union with muslims. After all of that no wonder relatives of massacred civilians (kids, women and elderly) took their revenge in Srebrenica. If my child is massacred I would do the same to those who did it.
