Balkan shenanigans....

If I had to guess which post-Yugoslavia states were the least friendly, I would nominate Serbia and Croatia (after Serbia and Bosnia Herzegovina, naturally), what with the series of wars fought between the two, ending with the expulsion of some 200,000 Serbs from the Krajina and elsewhere at the culmination of Operation Storm. And that is before any consideration of the remarkably bad blood between Croatia and Serbia from the War and before.

Anyway, Serbia has just voted for Croatia to be a non-permanent member of the UN security council, as did all of the states in the region, apart, apparently, from Slovenia. And Croatia and Slovenia have seemed to be fairly chummy of late, and if this is pay back for a border dispute involving one house, it seems a tad excessive as a response.

The details on the Serb and Slovene votes are up at Hina.hr, but it is not possible to link to the individual stories.
