Pentaz, I would not like this to go in argue, but you could not equate Vuk Karadžić and Ante Starčević. Vuk Karadžić was world class intelectual, cosmopolite and friend of Goete, Leopold Ranke, brothers Grimm and Jernej Kopitar. Despite his statmnets, Vuka was not seen as enemy of Croatian patriots, Illyrian movement, because their ideas were pretty much similar. Illiran movement chose Illirain name as common name for South Slavs, Vuk chose Serbian one. Besides it Vuk did not call Croats animals.

Ante Starčević, called nation of his own mother animals, or feces of Croats.

Both we're highly educated people, Starčević was a doctorate in philosophy. Point is we both view the opposite one as the bad guy. From Croatian perspective Serbization of Croats by Vuk Karadžićs writings is as well hilarous and laughing material and probably one of the resons of Starčevićs later rants. Point is and taken, we probably shouldn't discuss, however what i am sure is that these two taken as pillars of the named states are ones that are both directly and indirectly guilty of all massacres later happening between Croats and Serbs. Ante Starčević and his Croatization of Serbs and hate for it's political top, while Vuk Karadžić pretending as if there is no Croats and Serbization of everything Croatian. For a third party perspective they would be both viewed upon as just megalomantic, excessivley nationalistic and akin to over-romanticizing their nations. So yeah, let's just stop discussing it.
