Literally for thousands of
times the Western press used a label "Serbian-dominated" when talking about
emerging crisis in Yugoslavia. At the very beginning of the war, when it
was impossible to invent overnite Serb atrocities, this lie was an excuse
for unilateral, violent succession of Slovenia and Croatia. Poor "democratic",
"Western-oriented" states had to get out of the Serbian grip...
But the fact is that...
Post WWII Yugoslavia was run by Croat and Slovene
For 35 (thirty five)
years the absolute ruller of Yugoslavia was a Croat.

Entry: Kardelj, Edvard (Quote:)
Kardelj, Edvard (born
January 7, 1910, Ljubljana, Slovenia,
Austria-Hungary - died February 10, 1979, Ljubljana), Yugoslav revolutionary
and politician, a close colleague and
chosen successor of Josip Broz Tito. He was regarded as the chief ideological
theoretician of Yugoslav Marxism, or Titoism.
The son of a railroad worker, he graduated
from the Ljubljana Teachers' College. Since the age of 16 he had been a
member of the outlawed Communist Party, initially in its youth league.
He was imprisoned (1930-32) for his trade union and party activities, and
in 1934 he fled to exile, eventually making his way from Czechoslovakia
to the Soviet Union, where he received indoctrination in underground methods.
It was in 1934, prior to his leaving, that Kardelj first met Tito. Back
in Yugoslavia from 1937 on, he was arrested several times and imprisoned
After the German invasion of Yugoslavia
(1941), Kardelj helped organize the resistence in Slovenia and thereafter
accompanied Tito in much of the partisan fighting. After the war he served
as vice president (1945-1953) under Tito and he
drew up (1946) the Soviet-inspired federal constitution of Yugoslavia.
He became one of the country's major theoreticians and legalists, directing
the creation of all
the succeeding constitutions of 1953, 1963, and 1974.
Over the years Kardelj handed many foreign
missions and tasks as well, though he officially held the post of foreign
minister only from 1948 to 1953. Throughout, he was a key figure in the
collective leadership of the Yugoslav Communist Party, known as the League
