  • This photo taken Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 shows the brightly-colored newly painted fresco in the Serbian Orthodox Church of Christ's Resurrection in Montenegro's capital Podgorica. The fresco allegedly shows late Yugoslav autocratic leader Josip Broz Tito drowning in red fiery waves of hell with Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of the 1848 Communist Manifesto.

What appear to be rival church priests are being swallowed through a huge jaw of an angry gray beast with pointed devil ears. The fresco has triggered much attention and public controversy in this tiny former communist country. (AP Photo/Risto Bozovic)

    RAHN: Free markets flower as war memories fade

    It is a beautiful place with a tragic history. In 1914, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated while riding in his carriage in the center of the town by a Serbian nationalist. This act was the spark that ignited World War I. It was a war without purpose that cost millions of lives. Some 80 years later, another Serbian nationalist by the name of Ratko Mladic commanded the Serbian forces that not only killed many residents in Sarajevo, but he is said to have ordered the massacre of 8,000 Bosnian men and boys in the Bosnian city of Srebrenica.
