United States of Balkan or Balkan Federation


It will be possible in future after all present dilemmas will be solve that Balkan States , Romania , Moldova, Bulgaria, Serbia, Muntenegru, Albania , Greece , FYROM, Kosovo ( independent , autonomous ) maybe even Slovenia , Croatia to unite like a similar model with USA ?

*In past were movements of Union between Romania and Bulgaria .

They will have between 60-70 million population , strong military , exit to many Sea's, good geopolitics and huge resources.

'Given the recent history of the Balkans, the idea of Pan-Balkanism or a Balkan state might sound ludicrous. However, the history of the region shows us that this has not always been the case. Because of a shared history and previous global trends, the Balkan nations have undergone various attempts at some form of unification following the demise of the Ottoman empire. These attempts were not successful as the forces of nationalism and imperialism trumped every Pan-Balkanist movement, but they should not be forgotten because they give us a good counterweight to modern fallacies such as deep rooted ethnic hatred and support the dangerous rhetoric of ethnic superiority.'

It will come down to the issue of uniting a group of hostile nations together which for a while at least will be impossible

Tito had done that and it proved to be a failure.

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing it. As i understand it, creation of much smaller 'monster' south slavic state was possible right after WWII, based on panslavism. I doubt that romanians with their romance language, surrounded by huge 'barbarian' slavic sea and their daco-roman heritage would ever agree to be part of this abomination. Same for greeks and their ancient and medieval history. We are orthodox Christians and so what. Croats in this hypothetical state are majority catholics and albanians are muslims. No, panbalkanism is empty word. We fought to many wars in XX century.

We really don't look down on other peoples like that.

Most romanians are fond of south-slavs.

My intention was not to divide artificially people on this peninsula into untermenschen and ubermenschen or accusing someone of doing so. What's wrong with word barbarian anyway. According to Demosthenes Alexander's father was barbarian. It simply means a foreigner. I used this word to underline that creating such monstrous megastate was and is highly improbable due to different people, languages and cultures on Balkans.
