They want Peace

I read thisnews story in the examiner today talking about the numbers of students in the balkans desiring peace.

From the article:

In Serbia 90% of students polled stated that “war shall never be the choice of the Serbian people with its neighbors and war should only be used as a last resource.” 95% support Serbia to become a part of EU and they strongly believe that if all Balkan nations became part of the EU problems of ethnic division would disappear.  They also believe that the economy would flourish in the Balkans.
In Albania 97% of students support a peaceful solution in the matters of Kosovo, Montenegro and Macedonia. 100% support Albania joining the EU.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, 85% support a peaceful solution with Serbians in any dispute over land and other problems.  93% support their country to become a member of the EU.
In Kosovo, 95% of students are against the war with Serbia and prefer peace instead.  99% support Kosovo to become an EU member. 100% support Kosovo independence.
In Macedonia, the poll showed 100% support peace among ethnic groups and 100% support their country to become a member of the EU.
