At the risk of being polemical -- would they really need to be "radical"?

(sorry, I guess I just assumed their Muslims.  but from the comments below, I believe they are)
because only radicals would do something like this.

It is war.  Deface and destroy what your enemy holds dear in an attempt to lower moral.

I'm not so sure about that.

As has been said above, this occurred in the context of war. I doubt the people involved were even particularly religious, let alone radical.

All we can do is pray the Lord's words -- forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do!

are they radical muslims or something?!

Hard to tell without knowing more. I can't identify the uniforms. Perhaps someone else can.

The vid appears to have been uploaded in 2008, but may, in fact , be older. In any case, it's related to the rancorous splitting of the country of Yugoslavia after the demise of Tito. The soldiers could be Bosnians (Muslims) or they could be Croatians (Catholics). These groups have a profound hostility to one another going back decades. (Sadly, the Croations are racially identical to the Serbs, but they're Roman Catholic as opposed to Orthodox. Alas, it makes no difference.)  In any event, it's a combination of religion, politics, and nationalism.

Oh, and evil.
