Tribute to Chetniks
I guess you should vote for Vojislav Seselj and Srpska Radikalna Stranka.
Yes he is in jail and he has been reelected president of the party.
Now, I have mixed feeling about Chetniks. I respect some of them and some of the dukes, but dislike others. I also have rather negative opinion about Draza Mihailovic mainly because of his poor leadership, political incompetence and naivety. However, I do believe he had good intentions and what communists did to him after the war surely made a martyr of him.
Seselj is not sentenced, his trial is still in progress( for 9 years!!!), not to mention he has good chances of being released, if he does not suddenly die under ''suspicious'' circumstances like Milosevic. Therefore, he is still innocent.
Draža Mihajlović was fucked over by the British in 1943.
After this the Chetnik movement had no chance, they were poorly armed/equipped compared to partisans.
The Secret War documentary explains how and why this happened.
Check episode 13 - The Aristocrat and the Balkan Communist.
Draža probably did what he could under the circumstances.
Draža was a British pawn.Without Britain he would have been only a colonel and he wouldn't even form the Chetnik movement.
