“If we keep in mind the external circumstances that surround our homeland and the entire Serbian tribe, then it is clear that the salvation of Serbia is only in its powerful army, and the work on perfecting this should go so far that from today’s small Serbia in the near future it will become a modern military state, a well-organized camp “, the author of the text believes.
