I think you would have had it fine in SFRY. Communist, but much better.

I find it very interesting that two communist countries were that different. Yugoslavia was a quite developed country, and people could travel everywhere. They were also very welcoming, too. My family/relatives all say that they loved living under Tito's rule. His form of communism is called Titoism.

Oddly enough, in all my studies at my school in Boston, the sections concerning Tito and Yugoslavia were fairly positive. While studying in Moscow, not a word was said about the country or the ruler.

I believe that is because the leader(s) did not want people to know about a better form of communism.

I know that communism is seen as something negative, and I generally disagree with the ideology, but I find Titoism to be very positive, and something that can work very well in the modern world.

Partially yes. There is a combination of a very old culture and the particular government/economic system that makes people the way they are. A problem with something like Titoism, once there is no more Tito, there is less of a chance of th ism remaining as well.

I agree. The collapse of Yugoslavia was evident.

When did you live in USSR? Have you heard of political conflicts between it and Yugoslavia? There were many.

I admire Tito's braveness. He said something that is legendary, as a response to Stalin:

"Stop sending people to kill me. We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle - If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow, and I won't have to send a second."

It was in the 80's with Gorbechev and perestroika. I was there with a professor and some students, and we were in Moscow mostly (terrible terrible place). By then the relations with Yugoslavia were normalized to some extent, but i remember the rift (I mean studying it, i'm not that old!).

The conflicts were mostly during Tito's rule, so yes, you did not see much about that over there.

I am glad that Tito never allowed Yugoslavia to be ruled by USSR at all. Yugoslavia remained neutral during the Cold War, and had a very powerful military. Soviet Russians would face tough times in a war against Yugoslavia, without use of nuclear bombs, of course.

You know...the military strength of Yugoslavia was never really explained when i studied the whole thing. It was kind of odd that the Soviets didn't take Yugoslavia or Albania for that matter. Some of it was believed not to be the actual military strength in technology or even numbers but the character of the fighters and leaders. Unlike the rest of eastern Europe, they would never ever submit - or so was the thinking.

I think that the communists in USSR were too uninformed.

Tito did have a great and strong character, but Yugoslavia did indeed have a powerful military. It was probably among the world's best. But Yugoslavia solved problems diplomatically, not militarily. The leaders today should look at it as an example of good politics.

The information in the Soviet Union was tightly controlled. I don't doubt that the Soviet intelligence knew full well the strength of Tito's army. When we were there the things that we heard about the US was so funny, but i don't doubt the people that needed to know the truth did know the truth. Interesting about the airbase - i had no idea.

Have you been to Russia after the collapse of USSR? I wish to go there some day.

Yes. SFRY had a powerful army, no doubt about that. they had some parades, too. the video is one in 1985.

Now, many of the former republics of Yugoslavia are in conflict with their own people. They had almost everything a country needed. Now they blame each other for a war that happened between them, spread nationalism, etc.
