This is why you don't give up your guns. EVER
Rocks against vehicles and weapons?
Brave, but not a good idea.

(An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.)
They do have guns.
They used rocks and stones because they thought it was Serb villagers. They routinely stone Serbs just for traveling through a village.
These villagers were women and children.
The Albanian children and teens were notorious for attacking defenseless elderly Serbs who stayed behind.
They aren't brave, just didn't know it wasn't the typical convoy of Serb civilians which the UN allows them to freely pelt, usually causing broken windows and sometimes causing injures.
They deserved to get hurt.

Albanian Kosovars are basically savages.

UUUUrah, I'm a former Jarhead myself....in any case, I was in Kosovo for five years (99-04). In 2001 the following happened....
Bus bomb kills returning Serb families
The deaths of seven Serbs in a bomb attack on a bus on Saturday inside the Kosovo border with Serbia marks the worst single escalation of violence against a minority since the end of the NATO bombing in 1999. The Serbs were returning to their villages to visit graves on the Orthodox Day of the Dead, when the departed are commemorated. The deaths, and more than forty injuries, were caused by a large explosive device left in a culvert under the road near the border town of Podujevo. The explosion was triggered by wire. KFOR troops were accompanying the convoy of buses, which had left from Ni, and a separate KFOR unit had been searching the road for bombs and booby traps. They were distracted by a group of men they saw on a hill above the convoy route, and went to arrest them. It was as the KFOR troops were returning to restart the security checks that the convoy passed. The lead KFOR vehicles were allowed to pass before the device was detonated under a bus containing men, women and children.
There is more about this "OPERATION" in the link. It was a well planned operation by Albanian extremist, that included several other attacks several days later against Serb busses. The PERP was caught by a combination of German and British KFOR efforts, long story short, and turned over to the Americans at Camp Bondsteel. The Perp, Florin Ejupe wasn't in Bondsteel very long. He "escaped" from Bondsteel very quickly. Word is he was trained by the CIA and his escape was not by accident. We have supported the Albanian extremist since the beginning. Actually it goes beyond Klintoon. It goes back to 1948, in our effort to break down Yugoslavia. Interesting CIA operation that has spanned decades.
They are not brave. They do this to provoke, as they know they won't be shot at or absolutely nothing done to them. The children who stone are paid or prompted to throw the stones as the busses return from Serbia or heading to Serbia......it's well planned and orchestrated.
Once Kosovo becomes independent they will target Macedonia and Southern Presevo. We even had MPRI provide advisors for the NLA during their terrorist activities in 2000-2001 time frame.....
It's a mess and the innocent Albanians, (who want a normal life), Serbs and other minorities plus internationals will become targets. The "innocent Albanians" do support the independence because of the dream but they are aware that the Mafia owns and controls Kosovo working with specific UN personnel to strengthen the organized crime. All others turn a blind eye and move on after their mission is over......this is a very short comment about the issue.....and our tax dollars are supporting it.....
