Looking on the bright side, Balkan-style

Largely unheeded in these parts, all is not entirely rosy in the Western Balkans, as the Gallup Balkan Monitor makes clear:

"Looking at the next five years, do you think there is a chance that there will be
an armed conflict somewhere in the Balkans?"

Certainly / probably

Macedonia - 29%
Montenegro - 15%
Serbia - 22%
Kosovo - 10%
Bosnia Herzegovina - 11%
Albania - 12%
Croatia - 13%

Meanwhile, do not count on Croatia being the 28th member of the EU, the faintly ridiculous border spat with Slovenia notwithstanding, as only 29% think it would be a good thing, compared to 26% who think it bad and the 38% with mixed feelings.
