Considering this, when did the Yugoslavian war start?
1991 – 2001

Why did Croatia attack Bosnia?
The Croatian government began arming Croats in the Herzegovina region as early as October or November 1991, expecting that the Serbs would spread the war into Bosnia and Herzegovina. This was defied by Bosnian Croats and Bosniak organizations that gained control of many facilities and weapons of the TO.
