The title “Europeans fear of resurgence of the Balkan madhouse” of an article published last week on a popular newspaper shows better that anything else the extent and the complication of a problem: Not of course that of the “perversion” of the Balkan states and people, as the information “dealer” would like, but that of the effects of a policy of the “divide and conquer” type in a European area. This policy was and is still exercised by the “great powers”, as the countries/organizations that can exercise an expansive policy are each time defined. Consistently, the interventionist policy of the mighty ones takes advantage of the ethnic and religious differences, which are still irreconcilable. The excuse of the inter- (-vention)/(-ference) is timelessly their settlement. The problems arising from these differences however, not only are not settled, as the great powers argue, but after they are kept in a situation of suppression, they are on their rise again in periods like the one we are going through right now. This rise is usually attributed to extremists, nationalist circles etc. The fact that these “extremists” have coincidentally been bred and supported in any way by the powers that are now worried, is artfully being silenced.
