How Did The Bosnia War Start?

The Bosnia War (1992 - 1995) was an armed conflict that took
place in Bosnia and Herzegovia between April 1992 and December
1995. The war all started because Izetbegovic (muslim leader) signed
the Lisbon Agreetment and then later withdrew his signiture when
Warren Zimmerman (American ambassdor) met up with
Izetbegovic and suggested that if he withdrawed his signiture
he would give recognization to Bosnia as an idependant
state. After he took the ambassdor's advice he later held a
referendum on the seperation. The next day there was a muslim
led attack on a Serbian wedding. But with all that what really started
the war was when Izetbegovic annouced a full moblization without
the Serbian's and Coations consent.
That is when the war started in Sarajevo
