Now you're just being a disingenuous loser. I'll make the same type of stupid comment you just made.

Yeah, it was all NATO, the UN is simply too dumb to take responsibility for its own actions. We here at the UN are so stupid in fact that NATO even pulled our purse strings in Africa, yeah that's the ticket. The Oil for food debacle was all NATO's fault too because we lowly UN guys are too incompetent to know right from wrong...etc etc.

Talk about skirting the issue...

WHY do you defend the UN???

I am just saying that NATO is responsible. UN, ACLU, Greenpeace, Nation of Islam, Catholics for Choice, Aztlan, CPUSA, Objectivists, Scientology Church are not, even if we might not like them.

It is not the issue of UN being dumb, but that Russia and China have veto power and they were opposed to war on Serbia.

I went to that web site www.kosovo.net and found out many things about what is NOW going on on Kosovo in regard to non-Albanians.

I think everybody should check out the site. It is an eye opener.

One of the latest news items is about a Christian priest and his young family being ambushed in their car by men in a dark colored car who followed them from another town.

SHOCKING, but I am not surprised by it. Of course it was Albanians who did it... NO CIVILISED PERSONS WOULD SHOOT AT A CAR WITH A RELIGIOUS LEADER, HIS WIFE AND BABIES IN THE CAR!!

THANK GOD he and his family got away!

Russia and China were opposed to the fight, but they OK'd the UNMIK forces and administration of Kosovo by the UN flunkies.

I think we are discussing something that in the end we do agree.

THE NON-ALBANIAN POPULATION OF KOSOVO IS SUFFERING MIGHTLY UNDER THE UNMIK ADMINISTRATION AND THE NATO MILITARY OCCUPATION!! THE KLA IS A CRIMINAL ALBANIAN ENTERPRISE SANCTIONED BY THE UNMIK/NATO FORCES AND THEY ARE EVIL, EVIL,EVIL!!

What does that have to do with UN incompetence in Kosovo now?

Russia and China's oppsoition has nothing to do with their fondness for Serbs, but rather their disdaine for the US in general.

Do you honestly believe that the Russian Duma and the Chinese Government are worried about Serbia for Serbia's sake? They're simply looking out for their own interests.

I can say with a degree of confidence that the Russian citizenry, onthe other hand in general, support Serbs as kindred Orthodox people but certainly not the Duma in that regard.

UNMIK expects a wave of violence | 09:32 May 11 | B92

PRIŠTINA -- UNMIK police say that the recent increase of attacks on Serbs is a reason for concern in Kosovo.

“After the stoning of the bus, we are practicing in order to react quickly in unforeseen situations, and the mission chief is continuing the investigation.” UNMIK representative Nirad Sing told daily Glas Javnosti, adding that conflicts do not serve in the best interest of Kosovo and that it is time for both sides to realise that.

Commenting the most recent attack on a bus full of Serbs, UNMIK said that these actions are initiated by people who want to see the Kosovo status discussions called off. They added that the situation is getting more and more critical everyday, and that UNMIK will be preparing its police officers for similar incidents.

“On the same night that the United Nations bus which was carrying Serbs was stoned, we started to test our forces to see how fast we can react in unexpected situations.” said UNMIK spokesperson Kelly Collins Mcmurry, adding that UNMIK’s task is to protect all people in Kosovo.

She added that the police are not able to stop all crimes in any region of the world, and that UNMIK is well aware of the potential problems in Kosovo, adding that its forces will be well-prepared.

It's never ending.

Kosovo church demolished | 16:42 May 12 | B92, Beta, Radio KiM

(spc.org.yu)

Podujevo -- Unidentified individuals have vandalised the Saint Ilija Church in Podujevo.

According to Radio KiM, the attackers dismantled the doors of the church, which is currently being restored, and broke a majority of its windows. Radio KiM Editor-in-Chief Živojin Rakoèeviæ told B92 that the church was set on fire in March 2004, and that the restoration is being financed by the Council of Europe.

“During a visit to the church, we noticed that the doors were dismantled and that the windows were broken. Obviously, the attack occurred either yesterday or the day before, and someone changed the glass, but in several parts of the church where this was not possible to be changed quickly, there are still signs of the wreckage. Of course, there is no one there, no one is guarding the church, and the priests left Podujevo in 1999, and since then there have been no Serbs in this town.” Rakoèeviæ said.
