    Recently I've heared that one the former Yugoslav Countries (Slovenia) has recieved a slot in the E.U. What about all the other Eastern European Countries? Like Croatia, who is also a Country of the Former Yugoslavian Republic. It has its flaws, like the fact that it as just been freed of communism, but other than that, it has a stable economy, great tourism, etc...
    What do u think?

    There is a process that countries must follow before they are allowed to fully join the EU. Countries had to sign a SSA (Stabilisation and Association Agreement), which Croatia did in 2001, which was not ratified by all member nations until 2005. This meant that they are now a candidate for membership.

    It was expected to join the EU as a full member in 2010, but the expansion plans for 2010 have been put into doubt because of Irelands failure to ratify the Treaty of Lisbon.

    At the start of this month the EU report stated that Croatia should complete accession negotiations by the end of 2009, with membership following by 2011 at the latest.

    What the EU represents, folks, is the end of the nation states.

    It is still in a transitional stage, but the inevitable outcome, (and the goal which isn't really being openly stated) is a one world government controlled by the international corporations.

    Bladerunner, here we come!
