Serbia considers Kosovo partition
BBC News ^ | Friday, 11 August 2006

Posted on 08/12/2006 7:55:22 AM PDT by A. Pole

A senior Serbian government official has said she would accept a partition of Kosovo if no other long-term solution can be found.

The president of Serbia's Co-ordination Centre for Kosovo, Sanda Raskovic-Ivic, also said no Serb leader would ever sign a deal giving Kosovo independence.

She said Belgrade's policy was for Kosovo province to have substantial autonomy within the Serbian state.

Kosovo is technically part of Serbia but has been run by the UN since 1999.

The vast majority of Kosovo's population are ethnic Albanian who have been pressing for independence.

Kosovo's Prime Minister Agim Ceku has ruled out partition as an option and the international community has said it does not want to see the province's boundaries changed.

UN-brokered talks on the future of the province have so far brought no breakthrough.

It is mind-boggling that the Europeans don't see that they will be the next to lose their nations to Muhammedan immigration.

And why is that so? Why the Serbs in northern Kosovo should be broken away from Serbia against their will?

But it was not UN, it was NATO. In UN there are countries friendly to the Serbs.

I wonder how long it will be before the UN considers partition to be a solution to the Aztlan problem?

The partition of Aztlan will not be allowed. Even the parts inhabited by the Anglos will not be allowed to remain in America. The borders of Aztlan or Albanian Kasava may not be changed.

The vast majority of the UN countries may be supporting Serbia, but they don't run the show. The UN was once a noble idea/organization, but it has degenerated into a circus.

Not one of the UN administrations in Kosovo since 1999 has been even remotely impartial. Kosovo is worse off now than it was before. It's a crime- and violence-ridden hellhole.

The most important background line of the story has been omitted as usual. 70% to 80% of Albanians are Muslim. Independence would create another Lebanon and allow another Muslim stronghold to threaten Europe.

There are 1 billion Muslims, if only ten percent are radical, that is 100 million who hate us and want to kill us.

We should thank Carter for the problem in Iran and clinton for Kosovo, there was no mass murder or ethnic cleansing in Kosovo when clinton started an undeclared war.

Would just love to see the KLA try and push the Serbs in Mirtovica out because Ceku wants it all. If the Serbs agree to partion Kosovo, the KLA scum will have a tantrum, start shooting, which they will at which poing the world will see them for what they are, just before the Serbian military cuts them down to size.....

It looks like the UN has been doing as fine a job here as they have done in Southern Lebanon. Or the Sudan. Or the Congo. Or the "temporary" Palestinian refugee camps. Or wherever.

This is one massively useless organization whose only real result is allowing the worst elements of damaged societies to flourish and take over. And maintainly it's immense and venal bureaucracy at huge costs, naturally.

It's time to extricate ourselves and flush this beast out of our country!

Once a group or groups learn how the UN works and how to manipulate the situation, the UN becomes their pawn. And Muslim organizations have learned, too well, how to use and manipulate the UN.

The UN is an organization whose time is over!

The Contact Group Guiding Principles of November 2005 make clear that there should be: no return of Kosovo to the pre-1999 situation, no partition of Kosovo, and no union of Kosovo with any or part of another country. Ministers re-state the international community's willingness to establish, for an interim period after a settlement, appropriate international civilian and military structures to help ensure compliance with the settlement's provisions. Day-to-day governance , which must be conducted on a multi-ethnic basis, should rest with Kosovo's duly-elected representatives. Ministers recall NATO's continuing commitment to maintain a safe and secure environment through KFOR. source.

The "no partition" condition has been laid out from the start, and was reiterated as recently as August 4th.

The Serbian delegation is just wasting time at this point.

Why are you so generous to the Serbs? Living together with Albanian Muslim majority must be the greatest happiness according to you.

It's not for me to be generous or otherwise, A. Pole.

If the Serbs had bothered to listen to the Contact Group, they'd have known that this latest initiative of theirs is a non-starter, and merely a waste of time.

Hence the Serbian Army-US Military informal alliance/agreement which is two-fold for the current and future purpose.

1. The closeness allows observation and further "intel" on the movements etc... of the Serb Military.

2. The training alliance allows the US to train up the Serb Military for their own personal vanguard in Kosovo and Southern Serbia. At some future point, in BiH as well.


When the KLA become too out of control and such a liability, the US will give the Serb Govt the green light to move in to kick the living sht out of the KPC, KLA, the KFC or whatever they will call themselves tommorow.

The time will arrive when the Cekus of Kosovo have pushed their boundaries too far and pay the price. He will piss off one too many of his fellow Alb criminals when a hotshot young yahoo thinks it's "his turn" to control the crime syndicate in Pristine and run Kosovo.

Don't worry about Ceku and Thaci evading justice when it will be sweet jesus when they are done in by his fellow "Kosovars".

what a shame../sarcasm/


Bosnian police complete an investigation of the grave of Bosnia's first President and top Muslim leader Alija Izetbegovic which was damaged by an explosion at the Martyr Cemetery in Sarajevo's Old Town, early August 11, 2006. Prosecutors said the explosion created a crater of 70 cm (28 inches) diameter but the mortal remains were not damaged. Izetbegovic, a Bosnian Muslim, believed that peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims is impossible unless Muslims dominate them. REUTERS/ Danilo Krstanovic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

The KLA, KPC, and what is their new future name, the KFC? Kosovo Freedom Corps? We'd have to spell that acronym out, otherwise hoplite would see it as a sign to run out to the Ky Fried Chicken joint for a bucket of fried chickhun.

Ya know, flashbacks to his day in the Guard while pulling security for the corner KFC.
