Posted on 05/02/2007 1:19:11 PM PDT by kronos77
The Wall Street Journal reported on April 25 that "Russia gave its strongest hint yet that it will veto a U.N. plan for eventual Kosovo independence (currently a province of Serbia and administered by the U.N., JP) stirring outrage in Pristina (Kosovo's capital, JP) and U.S. concern." For once, the Russians seem to be on the right side of an issue. Moreover, the Russian policy on Kosovo, unlike that of the U.S. has been consistent, coherent, and credible. Should the U.S. go along with the Europeans in advancing an Albanian-Muslim led Kosovo to independence from Serbia, it will reveal a great deal of inconsistency and hypocrisy. Whereas in Iraq, the U.S. policy is to maintain a unitary state, (in spite of the Kurds well deserved right to self-determination and an independent state in Northern Iraq, after suffering more than 100 years of broken promises, denial and oppression) in Kosovo the West is eager to welcome an independent Islamic state without considering the consequences of what Michael Radu, Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and co-chair of the Center on Terrorism, called (in referring to the a Albanian-Muslim Kosovo Liberation Army - KLA) "a criminal gang" running Kosovo. Radu called Kosovo "the black hole of criminality in the Balkans" and charged that the U.S. is "supporting Kosovo's independence without having the courage to call it by name." Moreover, he said that the U.S. policy is based on "ethnic majority preference," a criteria the U.S. does not apply to Iraqi Kurdistan. The plan proposed by U.N. Special Envoy Martti Ahtisaari which would eventually grant Kosovo the independence sought by its Albanian majority, has been rejected by Serbia and veto-wielding Russia.

clinton bombed a christian nation that was defending themselves against a muslim terrorist organization. Now of all the conflicts in the world, which ones haven’t been started by muslim terrorists?
We bombed the wrong group in the balkans.
Glad to see at least republicans/conservatives are now figuring this out. When I tried to tell people this in 1999 NOBODY wanted to hear it.
Clinton also almost started WW III by bombing the Chinese embassy and ordering, through his NATO commander the British attack to the Russians at Pristina Airport.
Kosovo had the potential to start your basic atom bomb war. Serbia is a slavic orthodox Christian nation just like Russia. The BBC noted at the time that NATO leaders were watching for signs of Russia starting to evacuate its major cities, which would be a prelude to a nuclear war. The ONLY difference between SlicKKK KKKlinton and Charles Manson is the 180 IQ.
And a fat chick underneath the disk.
