Skip to comments.UN braced for clash with Russia on Kosovo (Russia defending Christians, US defending...UN?)
Posted on 01/29/2007 4:19:30 PM PST by kronos77
“The independence of Kosovo is a reality, so we demand recognition of Kosovo’s international subjectivity without any delays,” said Agim Ceku, its Prime Minister.
The main parties in the elections are opposed to independence for Kosovo, regarded as the cradle of Serb history and culture. Russia, Serbia’s traditional Orthodox Christian ally, has made it clear that it would not support any plan for Kosovo that went against Belgrade’s wishes.
“Russia believes it is unacceptable that a decision on the status of Kosovo be imposed from the outside,” said President Putin on Sunday.
As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, Russia could block recognition of Kosovo’s independence.

It was not FDR. The scourge of Communism was brought to Russia by Wall Street bankers. For a paltry $20M investment, over 10 000 Christian churches were destroyed, hundreds of thousands of Priests murdered. Criminal agents of Paul Warburg and Loeb, Kuhn &Co managed to murder tens of millions of Russians, Ukrainians and others and to ransack Russia.
Go to The National Galery in Washington, D.C. The artistic loot from Russia is still there.
In a sense, you are right about almost 100 000 000 million murdered Eestern Europeans being linked to an American
You only did not give the credit where credit is long due.
100.000.000? This figure is democRATS myth.
Yalta agreement signed by FDR, Churchill and Stalin!
I think Serbs can not to figure on Russia today.
Certainly Russians on former sympathize to Serbs. But Russia is too weak to oppose the West now.
Russia can not go through one war more.
All that we can make it's to give Serbs the moral support and to block the decision of annexation in the UN.
But opinion of the UN means nothing in the unipolar world.
Russis will only sellout the Serb nation and strike a deal in its own interest.
That is just history and it won't change. People say it can be changed now, but not at the political/govt institutional level, that will remain the same til a complete overhaul/regime change happens. Again, a few generations need to pass for changes to begin, which I doubt will ever happen.
How do we explain this obvious and blinding "bill board", that few is any see taking shape right now. The blinding light, may end up being a very large "cloud"....
Its a comfort to some degree to know there are others that see the same thing..
"Men often stumble on the Truth, but usually dust themselves off & hurry away..." - Winston Churchill
thought that I would bust in and offer a "little" assistance, as if you needed it....:)
I might instead choose to ignore you as an overeducated chucklehead.
Yeah. I think I'll do that.
Kosovo "independence" just means yet another European war in which NATO shouts at Russia and Russia shouts back at NATO while lots of people in the Balkans get shot.
Historically, this is fairly typical behavior for the Europeans, but this particular juncture would see France attempt to sabotage NATO in favor of the EU Defense Forces, as that would increase France's global standing while getting the U.S. out of many European matters...
...which is precisely why France is calling for the EU arms embargo against China to be lifted next month, as France wants China to serve as an anti-U.S. counter-weight should NATO fracture as Chirac desires.
1. The war's already been fought. The Serbs lost.
2. The Russians don't care enough to do anything about it other than posture before selling their erstwhile allies down the river.
3. The French overestimate their influence and capabilities. I see no reason to do the same.
At least that's the way I see things.
The Serbs will fight again for Kosovo.
As for Russia/France and the rest...always a crapshoot with such personalities. Could go any direction.
The better way to look at it is what's in it for the U.S. if Kosovo *does* become independent.
Now compare to our position if Kosovo remains quiet. Judge. Balance. Decide. Act.
Frankly, I see no reason to provoke bloodshed there. What's our gain in such a deal?
With what? A bunch of yahoos with AK-47s?
What's our gain in such a deal?
If we're Serbs, nothing.
If we're Americans, on the other hand, putting the present instability in Southern Europe down will allow us to concentrate those diplomatic and military resources presently devoted to that region elsewhere - something we've been looking forward to doing for some time. Hence our referring to the current Kosovo negotiations as the "Final Status".
I'm not really sure how the creation of a new Islamic state with unemployment of 70% will improve stability.
With reasoning like that, thankfully, you don't have to be.
Misleading headline. Russia doesn't really care about the Christians. They just want to keep their mitts on Kosovo.
Of course that creation of islamic state will bring stability... Muslim Turks ruled Balkans for 500 years...
1. Create Islamic state
2. Islamic state kills Christians
3. Only Muslims are remained on the face of the Earth.
4. No one left to make troubles for Islam...
5. Islam rules the Earth.
6. therefore, you got stability
I'm confused... Did I say something to offend you?
