Croatia marks massacre in Vukovar

More than 20,000 people have gathered to commemorate the fall of the Croatian town of Vukovar to Yugoslav forces during the war in 1991.

Decided to pop across the border and view the commemoration and get a feel of people's attitudes 15 years down the line.

Far too many still of the opinion that Croatia did absolutely nothing wrong, and that they themselves have nothing to apologise for. Posters supporting Branimir Glavas and Ante Gotovina everywhere.

Now that the NATO Riga summit invited Croatia to join the Alliance, we'll shortly be brothers-in-arms...

Merkator in Vukovar they didn't really do anything wrong other than try to stay alive - mind you I have met so many who 'escaped in the last days of the siege while holding back the tears.....' I am amazed that the JNA got anywhere near Vukovar given the 10+ divisions that were holding the place.
