Corrupt Kosovo cannot be independent state Apr. 14, 2006 at 8:54AM
A U.N. mediator says Serbia's southern Kosovo province has to eliminate corruption before it gains independence. Albert Rohan, U.N. negotiator in ongoing talks between Serbs and ethnic Albanians, said: "Corruption endangers the independence of Kosovo," Albanian-language media in Kosovo's major town of Pristina reported Friday. "There will be no independence unless corruption is contained. We do not want a state which has shortcomings from the very beginning," the Beta news agency quoted Rohan as saying. Kosovo Albanians, who make up 90 percent of the province's population, want independence from Belgrade while Kosovo Serbs want self-government for the Serb-inhabited enclaves. Formally, Kosovo with a population of 2 million is part of Serbia but it has been under the U.N. administration since 1999 when NATO forces drove out Serbian troops after grave rights abuses. The current talks should decide who will govern Kosovo once the U.N. mission and NATO leave the province.

This story is obviously baloney.
Everybody knows President Clinton FIXED Kosovo and turned it into the modern, well run democracy it is today.
Mr. Bush must have ruined it.

Push the Albanians too hard and they'll finish the Kosovo genocide that Bill Clinton helped them accomplish.

You might could abolish Mexico on the same grounds...
