I agree. The Serbs have also helped Americans in two World Wars. Serbs rescued downed Allied flyers during WWII.It about time we helped them.

So let me see if I got this right. The dem senators don't want us to cut and run 10 years after Clintoon's Serbian campaign, but they want us to cut and run after 3 or so years in Iraq.

“However, extremist groups in Kosovo are attempting to pressure Serbia in a way that would lead to destabilization.

Are they referring to the Islamofacists here

We are supporting Serbia - we sent FBI agents over to help them prosecute the muderers of the Bytyqi brothers and have provided them other assets to assist in finding Ratko Mladic.

If the Serbs want to be friends with us, all they have to do is start acting like it, rather than simply continuing to talk like it.

I sincerely apologize if I misspelt some of the names. I got this from a Serbian website. We have a habit of writing/spelling foreign names phonetically. Also, the site does not provide party affiliation or the senators' home states.

If they were then why did George Bush reject the notion of an international court having jurisdiction over Americans? Apparently US confidence is such that it would not subject itself to such a monstrosity, dumb ass.

And US opinion is such that Serbia needs to remain under the jurisdiction of the ICTY, seeing as how the Serbs are still unable to deal with their recent past themselves.

I should have specified "balkan policies" in my previous post. My bad.

Wake up. Serb nationalists and their supporters will never find a friendly administration in Washington - your ideals and goals are anathema to those of both of America's mainstream parties. It's a common plank, in the American platform, if you will.

If the last 6 years of Republican stewardship of America haven't been proof enough of this for you, then I can't imagine what would be.

The obvious conclusion is that you and your friends are so wrapped up in your fantasy world that nothing can reach you anymore, and the only reason I stick my oar in is out of morbid curiosity and an ever increasingly satisfying sense of schadenfreude.

I am an American-- born and raised. And, since the war on terrorism, Americans have begun to understand Serbs a whole lot better -- much to your chagrin, Hopeless.

You are all alone out there on FR these days, in case you haven't noticed. Your propaganda ain't working anymore, and your buddy Suleyman has taken a hike. Unfortunately for you, Hopeless, you are truly living up to your name!

I've always thought he was a sadist, and cold-hearted, with a Nazi-like attitude towards Serbs - and wanting to crush them under his jackboots. I mean, didn't you already figure this out about him, without him actually having to say it?

:)) they are supposed to trust us? you have got to be kidding. The only reason that they are even cooperating a little is to get in with the UN etc......political reasons. They have been acting right. The K-Albanian extremist, Mafia has been murdering Serbs since 1999, and actually before that.....but after 1999 to date, they have been engaged in ethnic cleansing operations to reduce the number of Serbs in order to justify independence for one reason. They used the Black Eagles paramilitary group under the control of Ramush H. to murder Serbs in a village, in order to force the remaining occupants to pack up and leave. I know this for a fact, as I tracked their progress......This was done UNDER OUR NOSES.......fact. The UCPMB would send several members regularly to the American outpost on the boundary of Kosovo and Southern Serbia; in order to deliver a training schedule of their terrorist training near my region. I know because the American KFOR representatives were perplexed that the higher command allowed this relationship. The UCPMB conducted operations against Serbian Police in the buffer zone, then run back into Kosovo. There was very close coordination between UCPMB members and TMK/KPC members during this time. I know this because I saw them drive away while three of us were surrounded by 5 UCPMB members wanting to know what we were doing at CP-5.....

And you expect them to trust us....? when are WE going to start acting like it and dethrone Ceku, Ramush, and the rest of the Albanian Mafia.......give Kosovo back to the LDK.....for starters. Allow the Serbian police to reenter Kosovo and run concurrent operations against Serbian and Albanian Mafia gangs.....for starters.....

We are in fact changing things. The actual strategy was to find a way to change our government from a constitutional republic to a socialist form of government. If I remember tomorrow, I will provide the person and quote..in any case, how to do it? The answer was, in all seriousness, was to substitute the word Socialist with the word "liberalism"...or Liberal. This is the way they are seeking to change out government to a socialist society. And, it's working..........for now. Clinton is an example...with Hillary to follow.....and their haphazard way of introducing very stupid but sinister programs.

Like I said, you're too wrapped up in your fantasy world to discern reality anymore - Serbia remains a pariah nation, and shall remain so as long as it chooses to avoid dealing with its recent past in the manner you and your friends around here.

I can live with that easily enough, and if you can too, well, then we're good, aren't we?

I am an American Serb, born & bred. My father fought for the US Army during WWII and my husband for the US Air Force in Vietnam. And that makes me "a Cetnik" exactly how?

And you give a damn about anyone helping Serbia?????? Your nose is growing, Hopeless!

For someone who repeatedly goes on & on about how unimportant Serbia & the Serbs are to you, you spend a ridiculous amount of time here arguing against them while continually protesting your indifference.

Me thinks thou doth protest too much, Hopeless. You are a man on a mission -- a creepy little man on a mission -- but on a mission, none the less. So just own up -- and for the sake of not making anyone here barf, don't pitch any altruism in it because it is obvious that you don't give a damn what anyone else thinks or feels. What are you and what are you here for? A neo-Nazi with a hatred for Serbs? A Croat or Muslim mercenary who still needs to feel that you fought for something of value in Bosnia or Croatia? You are way too invested here not to have some partisan angle on all of this, Hoplite, so quit acting as though it is not "personal" for you because it is obvious that it is.

With your astute military prowess in being a supposed 11B... Do you know how to clear a room? Clearing out the refigerator is not considered a room either.

Your life is fully vested in proving that you can locate Serbia, BiH and Kosovo on a map. That includes knowing how to properly spell the provinces, cities and mountain ranges.

why don't you just admit your frustration in not being a good soldier while you were in, never recieving at least a Letter of Appreciation, ARCOM, or a GCM frustrates you. Kinda makes you wish you had a girlfriend to release that pent up frustration, ehh?

No angle other than ensuring the facts get their fair shot, and my stake is simply continuing the thread of what initially brought me onto Freerepublic in the first place - taking issue with Serbs who bitch about how America is wronging them, instead of honestly looking at the reasons behind America's treatment of Serbia.

Not as interesting as your postulated hypotheticals, I know, but then it all comes back to what I said about you living in a fantasy world.

You see yourself as some sort of crusader for truth & justice, but you are not. You are just a creepy little guy hiding behind a keybord, because he can't handle life face-to-face. You need someone to blame for all the evils in the world and the only group of people that it was PC to hate when you started this was the Serbs. The operative word is "was" -- that was when Clinton was in office, that was before 9/11 and that was before the American people realized what radical Islam was all about -- and what the Kosovo Albanians are all about & how they used the US for their own ends. It is 2006 now, Hoppie, not 1999. Milosevich is dead, Bush is in his second term and in case you haven't noticed, the article above -- along with Bush finally giving the Legion of Merit Award to Mihailovich's granddaughter -- says that the tide is turning. You are the one in a fantasy world, Hopeless, who just refuses to believe it.

Look around you, Hopie. It is why you are all alone. The other "screw the Serbs" people have all gone home. We are on to a new war now --the war on terror -- and Serbia is a necessary ally in it. Live with it!

Thanks for the amateur hour psychoanalysis - you can be sure I'll give it all the attention it deserves.

And, again, I draw your attention to the fact that Serbia continues to be a pariah state, 6 years into the present administration, yet here you are waxing enthusiastic about how everything is coming up roses for Serbia, the "necessary" ally, who's only contribution I can think of is the arrest and extradition of Abdelmajid Bouchar.

Opposed to that real contribution, we've got Serbian disinformation efforts in regards to the London and Madrid Bombings (both of which Serbs tried unsuccessfully to tie to their local opponents - all fun and games until Dragomir Andan got his ass fired for lying to someone besides Serbs) and an abortive offer of troops for Afghanistan, which floundered on the rocks of our demand that the offered troops be vetted for war criminals. And who are those war criminals? Why none other than the "heroes" of Serbia's pre 9/11 "War on Terror".

Live with it!

Uh-huh. It's all fun and games until the contradictions and discrepancies surmount even your ability to pound the square pegs of reality into the round holes of your fantasy world.

I reckon that day will come when Kosovo is granted its independence. And when that happens, Serbia will have lost all ability to cause trouble, and thus be about as interesting as the Czech Republic. Woo-hoo.
