The Break Up of Yugoslavia
Conflict among the main ethnic groups (Serbs, Muslims, and Croats) in the republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina resulted to genocide against the Bosnian Muslims by the Serbs. Yugoslavia broke-up after World War I into its small ethnic groups after victory of the Western allies. In World War 2, the German Nazi invaded Yugoslavia and partitioned it. This led to a fierce resistance movement led by Josip Tito that reunited Yugoslavia. Josip Died in 1980 and this left Yugoslavia without a strong leadership and it entered into economic and political chaos.[(The Histrory Place 1999)] [(The Histrory Place 1999)]
A new leader, Slobodan Milosevic used nationalism and religious hatred to amass power. Through this, he propelled the tension that existed between the Serbs and Muslims in Kosovo. This political unrest led to the loss of Kosovo's independence. This marked the beginning of Yugoslavia's breakdown and in 1991 Croatia and Slovenia were declared independent from Yugoslavia, an event that spurred civil war. With the failure of the Yugoslavian army to contain the separatist protestors, Yugoslavia lost its power and control as Milosevic continued to dominate and dividing the rest of the newly formed states hence the breakdown of Yugoslavia.[(The Histrory Place 1999)] [(The Histrory Place 1999)]
Struggle for Control in Bosnia
Bosnian Serbs did not only want independence from Yugoslavia.

What ensued was an offensive attack to the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, where the Bosnian Serb forces with the help of predominantly Serbian Yugoslav army and backing of their leader Milosevic bombarded the capital, attacking towns dominated by Bosnians in eastern Bosnia. These towns included; Zvornik, Foca, and Visegard where Bosniaks were brutally evicted (ethnic cleansing).[(Malcolm 1994)]
The Bosnian forces from the government tried defending their territories with the help of Croatian forces, who neglected to recognize Bosnia as an independent state. Bosnian forces were dominant as they had help from the Yugoslav army and had control of three-quarters of the whole country until 1993 CITATION Mal94 \l 1033 (Malcolm 1994). During this period, Karadzic, founder of the Serbian Democratic Party (SDS), president of the Serbian Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which he named Republika Srpska, had set a republic in east Bosnia.[(Malcolm 1994)] [(Malcolm 1994)]
The Bosniak Croats fled the country but a relatively large number o...
