Albania and Yugoslavia and its present-day component parts were, then as now, up for grabs. But now such countries even farther to the east (and thus often even poorer) as Belarus, the Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia are also clamoring to join NATO and the EU. And so is Turkey, a large and predominantly Muslim country that borders on the Middle East. The United States wants these countries into NATO and the EU because it assists us in the war on terrorism and puts a tighter perimeter around Russia and slams the door on future Russian expansionism, but our European allies are not much in favor of further enlargement because to bring these countries up to acceptable standards will mean huge subsidies for which the Europeans will have to pay.
It took the wars in the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s for this to change. There, while Europe dithered and each individual country (Austria, France, Germany, Italy) sought to advance its own national self-interest in the region, some of the worst slaughters, genocides, and tortures in Europe since World War II were taking place. Europe dithered so long, unable to reach agreement, and so disgracefully that eventually the United States had to intervene militarily to stop the slaughter, bail out the Europeans, and restore a degree of order (the “Dayton Accords”) to the region.
