Polls all show independence has a slight lead. This really is stupid as Montenegro is to small to do well on its own.

It's not too small, and in any case it has sea access and a good harbour. I have yet to hear about people with sea access who died of hunger.

Europe has smaller countries. Though not in that region I believe. Kosovo isn't that big, but that situation still has not been resolved. I'm not sure it ever will be it's own country.

The reason Yugoslavia didn't stand up to Hitler's invasion was the instability caused by the country being artificial to begin with, and there was also a British assisted coup in the government.

But when it came to resisting occupation, Yugoslavian partisans were secon to none. Seriously.

I remember reading about the partisans, but were they any more effective than other countries such as Poland or France? I can't remember all the details.

Though smaller in population, Yugoslavia fielded many more partisans and tied down many more German troops per capita than did France or Poland.

My god, a serious thread and no real attempts to derail it yet. What's wrong with you people?

And now, an essay

An essay on bananas in the military

Issues surrounding bananas in the military can never be over analysed. Advancments in bananas in the military can be linked to many areas. While much has been written on its influence on contemporary living, it is important to remember that ?what goes up must come down.? It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that bananas in the military is rarely given rational consideration by those most reliant on technology, who are yet to grow accustomed to its disombobulating nature. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of bananas in the military.

Social Factors

As Reflected in classical mythology society is complicated. When J H Darcy said 'fevour will spread' [1] she failed to understand that if one seriously intends to 'not judge a book by its cover', then one must read a lot of books. No symbol is more potent than bananas in the military in society today. It cleary plays a significant role amongst the developing middle classes.

Of paramount importance to any study of bananas in the military within its context, is understanding the ideals of society. It breaks the mould, shattering man's misunderstanding of man.

Economic Factors

Our world is driven by supply and demand. Of course, bananas in the military fits perfectly into the Watkis-Teeth-Pulling model, which I hope will be familiar to most readers. Market
Value
Of
Gold

bananas in the military


Clearly the graphs demonstrates a strong correlation. Why is this? It goes with out saying that the market value of gold looms over bananas in the military this cannot be a coincidence. Perhaps to coin a phrase bananas in the militaryeconomics will be the buzz word of the century

Political Factors

The media have made politics quite a spectacle. Placing theory on the scales of justice and weighing it against practice can produce similar results to contrasting the vote of the man in the street with that of one more accustomed to bananas in the military.

In the words of the famous political Augstin Woodpecker 'political change changes politics, but where does it go?' [2] Primarily, he is referring to bananas in the military. It is a well known 'secret' that what prompted many politicians to first strive for power was bananas in the military.

I hope, for our sake that bananas in the military will endure.
Conclusion

To conclude bananas in the military parades along man's streets and man waves back. It questions, it stimulates and never hides.

I will leave the last word to the famous Elton Cruise: 'I demand bananas in the military, nothing more nothing less.' [3]

Relatively flat countries which make it hard for small groups to run, hide, or ambush. Yugoslavia was a very mountainous place so it was perfect for rebel groups. Plus there was a several groups of locals who disliked each other so everyone was already divided into camps.

If they secede, do we get to kick another country out? How about Austria or Switzerland?

I think it would be a brilliant idea for them to become independent.

It currently has Serbia and Montenegro's only sea ports and given Serbia's relations with its neighbours, Montenegro could stand to do well on transit taxes for Serbian goods.

Also, chances are that Serbia probably does better out of the current partnership than Montenegro with Montenegro making a net loss out of the union.

If anyone remembers, the whole disintegration of the former Yugoslavia was precipitated by the secession of the relatively rich Slovenes in 1991 cos they were pissed of that the Serbs were getting fat off their hard work...

Also Montenegro has tremendous potential for tourism, which because of its small population is a positive point where relatively small tourist numbers could significantly boost the economy.

I bet, assuming the vote to secede wins, Montenegro makes it into the EU sooner than Serbia...!
