Why would the west want to topple a communist regime that was a thorn in the side of the soviets?
A thorn ? Not so much a thorn...why would west do it ? Why Operation Gladio ? Simple....because they are commies !!!!! No additional reason
Why would it want to destabalise a country that has nothing, like oil for example, of benefit to the west.
It was the power vaccum after Tito died that enabled all the little tinpot wannabe dictators throughout Yugoslavia to take power. The best way of
getting support....ethnic conflict.
True. But the west had a motive in it. They certainly helped or if you want...initiated. US congress even passed a resolution to financially aid any

there was peace and stability...from 1945 onward right up to the end of the 80's.
I think you might be misinformed as to what was life like in Yugoslavia before 90's. There werent any conflicts...ethnic or otherwise. Not that it was
paradise by no means...but it wasn't that far off what we have today...at least for the common folk. The rich can get richer today far more easier in
the capitalist system. Little people live day in day out...just as they did back then.
but...this is off topic, and with respect to the OP:..let's finish here.
