Independent?

Bosnia and surrounding countries were part of former Yugoslavia. Croatia and Montenegro wanted independence and were recognized. Serbia, the heart of what used to be Yugoslavia, wanted to remain in control of all the countries. Then Bosnia also became recognized as an independent nation. Serbia went to war with Croatia, trying to gain them back, and failed. Serbians then turned their focus on Bosnia, which was how the genocide began.
