UN administrators flee Kosovo's Christian “Kristallnacht”

UN administrators flee “Kristallnacht” | 23:46 | B92

PRISTINA -- Wednesday – UN administrators have abandoned offices in the Kosovo towns of Gnjilane, Prizren and Pec, fleeing what one UNMIK official described to B92 as “Kristallnacht”.

“Kristallnacht is under way in Kosovo,” the official told B92 on condition of anonymity.

“What is happening in Kosovo must unfortunately be described as a pogrom against Serbs: churches are on fire and people are being attacked for no other reason than their ethnic background,” he added.

Serbs and UN officers have been the target of attacks by Kosovo Albanians during most of the day and night. The most dramatic withdrawal was from Belo Polje on the outskirts of Pec, where UNMIK officials, retreating with Serb residents, where forced to shoot Albanian assailants in self-defence.

The Serbian Orthodox seminary in Pec has been razed, and Albanians celebrated its destruction by setting fire to the local church., said the UN official.

Mother Teresa was a Catholic Albanian - these Albanians are converts to Islam from several centuries back.

Oh, I know. I was just referring to her being Albanian in general, and how something like this would horrify her.

Thanks again to Slick Willie. Put this one in the column with failing to get OBL when he (via the CIA) knew where he was.

What's really strange is that outside Free Republic relatively few American conservatives or Republicans understand just what clinton did in Yugoslavia. They STILL don't get it.

PC war at the behest of that incredible fool Maude Albright.

Same shite in Haiti and I saw her on O Reilly last night still defending the Psycho Priest down there.

Just like Jimmah...absolute incompetence and lack of stones in foreign policy.

INTREP - Klintoon and his frau sided with the pro-murder Planned Parenthood and NOW, and with the pro-murder TROP...and Kerry was his cheerleader. Just who we need to lead this country in the war negotiations with terrorists!

I do understand what you mean. I think it "sunk in" already.

I think that Europe has woken up and is taking care of business in its immediate vicinity.

How so? All I see are a bunch of hand-wringing wimps who are basically begging the terrorists not to hurt them again. The LAST thing to do when terrorism strikes is show any fear.

It's debatable whether the Spanish vote was an indication of their fear/appeasement instincts or was simply a reaction to being lied to by Anzar about Eta's involvement in the terrorist act. He was way too quick to point the finger in their direction, and it reeked of electioneeering. I think there's a good chance the incumbant would still be in office if he were straight with the electorate about Al Qaeda's (probable) role in the attack.

well I think the terrorism in South Eastern Europe is being eliminated with this current Kosovo situation.

There have been a number of small events in Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Greece over the past year that in total are curbing the threat of terrorism in the region.

You underestimate the capacity of the socialists (in any country) for duplicity, for making false allegations for electoral gain, and for using emotions like fear to win votes.

JMHO.

I don't underestimate the socialists at all. But the false allegations in this case were made by Anzar. .....He should've told the truth -- that he had no idea who committed the terrorist act. Blaming Eta without even a ounce of proof was not a wise move.

I think we should all agree and demand that the current US administration should do away with Clinton legacy.

is there a consensus on this issue?

Best way to do away with the Klintoon legacy is to do whatever it takes to keep the HBIC out of the White House.

Nearly all of the hundreds of thousands of "ethnic Albanians" reported killed in ethnic cleansing before we bombed Serbia are alive today. The stats were LIES.
One hundred per cent of the Serbs killed by American bombs and Albanian Muslims remain dead.

As we all know Clinton put US troops in Kosovo and
if one wanted to reverse his legacy one would withdraw US troops from there.

So I think the smart thing for Bush would be to withdraw troops from Kosovo and tell the Europeans to take care of their own backyard.

My impression is that it was a "Look at what getting involved in the Iraq war did to us!" thing. I saw the footage of the rallies/protests, where people were holding up "Paz" (Peace) signs. They didn't want revenge, just to wave the white flag.

You know they're going to come crying to us don't you? These europeans insult us time after time but when they screw something up they run straight for the US military.

To sum todays events .... JULY 25 2001

Part of Mr. Bush Kosovo Speech to the troops in Kosovo

Mr Bush visit to Kosovo

It's a long list. It speaks volumes about why you are so good at your mission. You come from many nations, many cultures and many continents. Just like amongst the U.S. military personnel, many races, there are many faiths, many traditions represented. Your diversity and close cooperation, General, in the cause of peace is an example to the people of this region and is a rebuke to the ethnic intolerance and narrow nationalism that brought us here in the first place.

As we head into the 21st century, we must not allow difference to be a license to kill and vulnerability, an excuse to dominate. We will pursue a world of tolerance and freedom. From Kosovo to Kashmir, from the Middle East to Northern Ireland, freedom and tolerance is a defining issue for our world. And your service here has set an example for the whole world to see.

We're making good progress. Thanks to you and those who served before you, the people of Kosovo are able to buy food and find shelter, go to school and get medical help. Thanks to you, there will be elections here in November, elections where we want to see the widest possible participation.

Thanks to you, there are fewer arms flowing into Macedonia and a hope for peace in that land. Thanks to you and the service of our forces throughout the Balkans, the region is growing closer to the rest of Europe, but there is still a lot of work to do.

Civil institutions must be put in place and made stronger. Organized crime must be brought under control. War criminals must face justice, and Kosovo must not be a safe haven for insurgents elsewhere.

America has a vital interest in European stability and therefore peace in the region. That's why I've recently taken steps to cut off outside support for the rebels in Macedonia. That's why we need you to keep patrolling the border and cutting off the arms flow.

Each and every day, your work is important to the people of this region. America and allied forces came into Bosnia and Kosovo. We came in together and we will leave together. Our goal is to hasten the day when peace is self-sustaining, when local democratically elected authorities can assume full responsibility and when NATO forces can go home.

As well, you not only need to have a clear mission here, but you need to have a commander in chief with a clear vision who sets clear goals for our military.
