January 2, 2007 -- A Kosovo Serb, Vladimir Radosavljevic and his wife Bosiljka were shot at in the Kosovo Muslim Albanian stronghold of Klina after Radosavljevic filed papers with the Kosovo Housing and Property Directorate to have his illegally confiscated home returned.
Radosavljevic's were asleep when unidentified gunmen fired a round from an automatic weapon at their temporary shelter in Kosovo town of Klina where they were awaiting the authorities to evict the illegal Muslim Albanian occupiers of their property.
Police found 23 bullets among the broken glass and empty chargers in the street. The evidence, according to the police, suggests that the attackers used a Kalashnikov AK-47 in the shooting. Radosavljevic's were then evacuated from the premises by the police and placed in the apartment of their relatives in downtown Klina. Police made a statement that an investigation is in progress.
In 1999, Radosavljevic's family fled Klina fearing Kosovo Muslim violence. Their home was then illegally occupied by a member of the Kosovo Liberation Army, a Muslim Albanian guerrilla force, who then rented the house to two other Muslim Albanians.
At present, certain Mr. Morina claims ownership of the house saying he has legally purchased the home in Montenegro.
Radosavljevic's say that they never rented nor sold their home to anyone.

Ostensibly, it seems to be getting rather contagious - isn't it?
I am sure you realize that I am fully aware that Iraq is next to Iran.
Do you have hope that the US will deal with Iran soon?
I am not too sure about that.
I didn't mean to insult. I am sure you are aware of Iraq's proximity to Iran. I was just pointing out that, in addition to Iraq & Afghanistan, the presence of U.S. troops in other neighboring countries means that Iran is now virtually surrounded - not an enviable situation. The map shows this very well.
I have just always believed - or maybe "hoped" is a better word - that Iran has always been the bigger fish in this pond (or cesspool as the case may be). I believe Bush knows what likely has to be done, but I have serious doubts as to whether the county's will is there - at least as it applies to about 50% of the population, anyway.
Thanks for clearing that up. Some Freepers just love to go around insulting people for the sheer joy of it.
I think that is what is bothering me. I have been a strong supporter of the war, but with the country being so short sighted and easily lead astray, I just wonder if Bush is going to have the political capital to do anything more than try to finish up Iraq and get out. (Shades of Vietnam- I always thought the left had the greater responsibility for how that war was fought, and then complained about it!)
I have been reading Victor Davis Hanson's book "Carnage and Culture", where the "freedom culture" wins over the "tyrannical culture". But only when the leadership and the population are behind it. I really wish Bush had taken on the media all these years instead of letting them have their way in misinforming our nation. This war needs to be fought at home as well, but obviously in a different way, but still fought none the less.
Ah, a good Billy Clinton supporter to the very last, I see. The truly stupid part is denying that the Albanian terrorists were trying to ethnically cleanse the Serbs since the 1980's (even before).
But little minds need to have someone else point out a good guy and a bad guy for them, which is why you need Hillary and Bill to sort it out for you.
and we're giving these monsters land, what happendedin this world?
well, mrs poundstone hasn't come back to this thread, indicative of his character.
He's having a tantrum , and it's all your fault .
