I've frequently heard the maxim that the greatest force for peace in the world is MacDonalds fast food. Apparently no country with a MacDonalds has ever attacked another country with a MacDonalds, until now. Yugoslavia has several MacDonalds restaurants, however it has been said that since the Sarajevo Olympics the balkan Big Macs have had a different recipe for the special sauce, which makes this the biggest punishment for violation of franchise rules I have ever seen. So, a note to you other countries: pay attention to your franchise recipes!!! See what changing them gets you?
