If my statement about the first Yugoslavia being in many ways a non-synchronized and contradictory state is correct, what then can be said about the second Yugoslavia that endeavored, by keeping silent, to fill in the fatal fissure opened in Jasenovac and other places of annihilation of Serbs in the so-called Independent State of Croatia during the Second World War? For that reason, the former intermediator of the "international community" in Yugoslav conflicts, Lord Carrington, has repeatedly stated that with its new Constitution, Croatia rekindled the conflict with the Serbs. The essay will begin by discussing discuss the paralization to the breaking-up of the state, before moving to a discussion of the wars between secessionists and antisecessionists. We will also examine the role of the Yugoslav Army, and Western triumphalism regarding the Yugoslav tragedy.
