"hard factual material."
This is never a horror but welcomed. Hard Factual material, must be triangulated or more. In other words, the material should have actual quotes, pictures, and/or unbiased studies, stats etc. The sources should be validated as to their origins....ICG for example cannot be trusted when it comes to the Balkans. Wesley Clark is on the staff...The ICG is just another Think tank for the Globalist. In other cases they do have good reports depending on the agenda......What they write needs to be checked with other sources before taking them at face value. Those who are PRO-Serb nationalist will support Milosevic.....now you have to step back from there also. Their opinion may be biased as well, by turning most if not all Pro-Serb rhetoric to anti-UN, America, Albanians etc..... There is a group of Albanians that are also victim to the Albanian Greater Albania (mostly LDK members or members of the former FARK). The Serbian Mafia (Black Hand)....is alive and well and works with the Albanian Mafia for obvious reasons. The could care less about other Serbs and the Serbs inside Kosovo. This is only scratching the surface.............
Damn straight. Undersecretary this or Assistant that just aren't in the cards anymore, as Hoplite continues keep his plate clear for bigger things.
Thanks to Mr. Peabody for use of the WABAC machine.
You are in no position to demand anything, nor am I inclined to waste much more time on you and yours. Once Kosovo's status has been settled, you will no longer have the ability to camouflage your agenda behind what you misinterperet as American interests, and the culling of Serb nationalists from this site will proceed at whatever pace you and your friends set when you turn your impotent rage against America.
"You" have the balls to drop bombs on hospitals and bridges. That is as far as "your" courage extends.
Impotent rage against America - see?
Saudis and Pakis create the problems, then "they team up with us help us solve it"? How convenient! Meanwhile, because we keep treating the Saudis like they are "our friends & partners in the War on Terror", we ignore the fact that Saudi mosques are going up all over Europe and the US faster than McDonalds, exacerbating the problem for us even further.
Yes, I know bin Laden is trying to bring down the corrupt House of Saud, but there are many in the Saudi government who are playing both ends against the middle -- financing al Qaeda and meanwhile, exploiting the "solidarity with America in the War on Terror".
Saudis are not helping us win the war on terror -- they are "the terror"! Al qaida isn't "their problem", it's their strategy! Because we need their oil, they have us over a barrel so we are pretending not to see it, but it's not hard to see if you look at it logically.
Yes, we've plenty of evidence that the two of you have raised your anti-Serb bigotry to the status of a religion.
Set kneepads to "Dhimmitude" would be more like it in your case, o' toothless one!
Hoppy's position is on his knees before the Muhammedans, swallowing it all like the good Dhimmi that he is.
No, Hoppie, "impotent rage against America" is the MO of the Muslims who you support. It's why you and they are hoping for "72 virgins in Heaven" -- "women who won't expect much" are all that the impotent can handle.
I am an American, born and bred -- an "American nationalist" (AKA patriot) and it is from through the eyes of American ethic I see this Balkan blunder, just as the author of the original article does.
You may be right, in that Serbia does on paper, lose Kosovo. Of course it would be a completely unethical and illegal action, but the forces that seem to be shaping events these days don't really seem to care about legality or ethics when it comes to the Balkans. They just want what they want and are willing to break all the rules-- even their own -- to get it.
But Serbs waited four hundred years the last time to reclaim their lands from Muslims and they can wait again again if they have to. It won't have been the first time Germany and it's Islamo-fascist partners hit them from both sides and it won't be the last. But the Serbs know better this time -- they won't naively embrace a "bratsvo jedinstvo" (one brotherhood) poltical mentality with their neighbors again, which left them vulnerable this last time.
As angry as Serbs may be at the American government right now(as often many non-Serbs here on the board are), an attack on America on our turf just isn't their style. They are the only member state of the former Yugoslavia to have had a history of parlimentary democracy and a historical rock-hard resolve against both fascism and Islamic aggression. Serbia's ideological enemies are America's ideological enemies -- they know that, even if America doesn't.

Oh, I get it, you are up for "Secretary of State of IHOP" Right?
American patriotism isn't something you can cry up whenever it suits your agenda, Boka. It's either your agenda from the start or it's not.
Your agenda as far as the Balkans goes is dominated by Serbian nationalism from what I've seen, and it's going to bring you nothing but hair pulling disappointment as far as trying to reconcile it with the relevant portions of American foreign policy.
Ah schadenfreude. Such a guilty pleasure, and it couldn't be derived from a more deserving bunch of ethno-racist ignorami.
Neo-nazi sadistic bliss -- bet they'll be lots of it in Hell, Hoppie.
No, Hoppie. I come from the "home of the free and the land of the brave". My frustration is that US actions in the Balkans couldn't be more cowardly and unethical -- and that cowardice does not represent who we are as an American people.
The day that you and your cold-blooded Nazi mentality represent "the real America", is the day that we should all start wearing black because America as we know it will be dead.
And all else has failed you Boka - have no illusions about that.
Thanks for the info.
Based on your politics, your love of using sadistic German quotes, not hard to see that if it looks, walks and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. Or better yet, if it goose-steps like a Nazi...
Your agenda as far as the Balkans goes is dominated by Serbian nationalism from what I've seen, and it's going to bring you nothing but hair pulling disappointment as far as trying to reconcile it with the relevant portions of American foreign policy"
President Woodrow Wilson to Serb-American inventor Nikola Tesla, "A good Serb is a good American -- our values are the same."
There is no conflict for me, Hoppie.
Just because you don't see or refuse to acknowledge the conflict doesn't mean it doesn't exist, Boka - your patriotism is dissociative, damaged, and absurd, much like your position in regards to American Balkan policy on the whole.
Hoppy YOU ARE MY HERO!
regardless to vast amount of avidence posted on this topic,
regardless to common sence
regardless to the fact that entire world is saying opposite
regardles to the testemonies of people that WERE in the field and saw the truth...

Hoppy we are saluting you!
We are all awere of the fact that you are on the good way to become a successor to Weesley Clark!

With any luck, US military will will be saved of your potencial generalship, and you will be promoted directley to MSM advisor think tank (think bucket)
