You might remember the speculations about the links between Nod and the historical Black Hand, the pan-slavic organisation held responsible for the assassination of archduke Franz Ferdinand. You might remember EA's hints of Kane's fascination with the Balkans, as evident in Kane rebuilding his Temple in Sarajevo.

Now, there's more.

Mi smo more krvi prolili za bratstvo I jedinstvo nasih naroda:
e, necemo nikome dozvoliti da nam dira ili da nam ruje
iznutra da se rusi to bratstvo I jedinstvo....


- Josip Broz - Tito

Translation:

Quote

We decant a sea of bloodshed for brotherhood
and the equality of our nation and we are not going to allow
anyone to touch, to uproot from inside or to destroy
in any way this brotherhood and equality...


Sound familiar? That's because as well as "equality", "jedinstvo" be translated as "unity". Brotherhood, Unity...

If that still doesn't convince you, remember this post-soviet logo from Renegade 2:

Едиство, Братство

Jedintsvo, Bratstvo.

I'd heard of Tito before (I just gave a presentation on the history of the Balkans the other day), but I never suspected he had ties to the Brotherhood... It all makes sense now. :O

I wonder if the Balkans-related stuff in C&C came from Joe Kucan... I mean, his surname is of Balkan origin, and he once joked in an interview that he can never become the president of the US since he was born in Estonia (and no, he wasn't).

Hmm yeah I'd always had suspicions about Ferdinand getting whacked.
