Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- The bile that has poured from so-called euro-skeptics since the Nobel Committee awarded the Peace
Prize to the European Union is not surprising. To a journalist
who has covered the Balkans for more than two decades, it is
also reminiscent of the nationalism that ripped apart the former
Yugoslavia. Back then, though, no one spoke of Yugo-skeptics.
Today, if Serbs, Croats or Albanians used the language of
anti-Europeans further west, they would be labeled extreme
nationalists and a threat to stability, without so much as a
blink of an eyelid.
