Royal News Roundup
that article for my thoughts on the subject, they will be much the same as this, only, again, Gavrilo Princip is far worse (and having just had a look back at the article, I see one reader brought up this very comparison). He started a World War and sure, Serbia was lucky enough to come out on the winning side and gain all the territory it wanted, becoming Yugoslavia but Princip was long dead by that time and he was certainly no prophet. What if things hadn’t ended that way? What if Russia had refused to get involved and Serbia was just conquered by the Austrians and absorbed completely into the “Dual-Empire”? His despicable act might just as easily have brought about the total elimination of Serbia from the map. Finally, on one last note to all Serbian nationalists tempted to view Princip favorably; remember that it is exactly this same sort of attitude that has allowed Kosovo to be taken away from you. Think about it.
