This chapter outlines political events that preceded declarations of independence by several Yugoslav republics, leading the Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) to declare war, first on Slovenia, then Croatia, and finally Bosnia. The influence and interaction of international community actors with local and regional leaders is also examined. The chapter further details the activities and plans of Bosnian Serb leaders who – well before the conflict began there – created networks and hierarchies that were eventually activated in wartime, and documentation of which provided evidence in the ICTY of what is known as “joint criminal enterprise” or collective liability. Finally, the military and financial preparations required to ensure Serbian dominance in the JNA and the participation of Serbian special forces in the Bosnian conflict, as well as guarantee untraceable funding directed toward the militarization of Bosnian Serbs, is analyzed.

Keywords:   Slovenia, Croatia, Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA), International Community, Joint Criminal Enterprise, Serbian Special Forces
