Changing Times

Coalition of Croatian war veteran organisations led by Colonel Mirko Čondić (Mirko Condic) has issued an official statement expressing full support for American attack on Iraq. This is hardly surprising, because Čondić's main political allies and sponsors – HDZ and HB – had done the same.

But this support is rather interesting in light of the events from two years ago. People connected with Čondić then led the demonstrations in front of US Embassy in Zagreb, protesting alleged American influence on Hague Tribunal and its indictments against "Croatian heroes". Needless to say, American flag was then burned as the part of the spectacle.
