Skip to comments.Hillary Rodham Clinton: Kosovo-Bush`s fault (official statement of NY senator)
Posted on 11/30/2007 3:03:53 PM PST by kronos77
On December 10, the US-EU-Russian troika seeking a mutually acceptable settlement of the future status of Kosovo will make its report to the United Nations and to the world.
Given the current position of the Russian government, it is unlikely that any agreement will be reached. If this is the case, I believe that further delay would be highly inadvisable. This process, which started far too late thanks to the neglect of the Bush Administration in its first term, has run its course. With Russia threatening to veto any arrangement submitted to the U.N. Security Council, we must be prepared to strongly support the will of the majority of the people of Kosovo. If the government in Pristina decides for independence, I would strongly support prompt U.S. recognition, and I would urge the European Union to do the same. I also congratulate the people of Kosovo on the orderly, peaceful election they have just completed.
In supporting the independence of Kosovo, I want to stress the high importance that I attach to full protection of the rights of all minorities in Kosovo, especially the Serbs. This is an absolute necessity as Kosovo goes forward.
I am also concerned about the deterioration of the situation in Bosnia. Twelve years after the Dayton Agreement ended that war, a combination of American neglect, European Union weakness, and Russian and Serbian obstructionism threatens the stability and future of Bosnia. I urge the Administration to pay more attention to this issue, so that it does not once again become a major threat to European stability, especially at the same time as the Kosovo situation approaches a historic juncture.

So many things I’d like to say!
This woman is a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance. Were it not for Pelosi and Boxer, Hillary would be a most sterling example of the term “Bimbo”. Without Bill, she is nothing. And boy, when you’ve got to rely on him for your intelligence, you’re really desparate.
May she burn in Hell!
If she follows Bill’s footsteps she will exaggerate the atrocities and then bomb a bunch of civilians and maybe the Chinese Embassy.
I was against military action in Kosovo, says Bill Clinton.
Frankly, the Republicans have been absolute morons about this. Kosovo may have been the worst thing clinton ever did during his 8 years in office, and they have not said ONE WORD about it.
So hillary is in a perfect position to blame the whole thing on Bush. And what can he say now, since earlier he said that an independent Kosovo would be a good thing? And since he never has even suggested that clinton left him a filthy mess of Muslim terrorists in Bosnia and Kosovo?
Troika?.........How Soviet of her..............
Clintoon’s Wag the Dog
Then I guess we should pull our troops a la Iraq, no senator? If president, what would your Kosovo exit plan look like?
Western policy abou Islam (and not just reacent, but for past 300 years) was idiotical.
Id like to compare it with first “Alien” movie:
1. Strange SOS signal from unknown planet
- Lets go see it!
2. We found strane looking Alien ship.
- Lets go in!
3. Onboard the ship we found strane alien eggs
- Ill put my face close to it to look, its openng!
4. Alien jumps to face of an one of our astronauts.
- Lets screw security measures and bring it onboard our ship!
5. Alien burst out of astronauts stomack killing him
- Halleluyah! We have found new lifeform!
6. Alien grows up and starts killing us.
- It is in his nature, its natural.
7. Alien is in killing spree.
- Lets find some victimes to feed him with!
8. Alien have killed evryone onboard.
- We gie hin another ship and another crew to appease him.
“Then I guess we should pull our troops a la Iraq, no senator?”
How many are there? Having trouble finding current info.
The oddacity (misspelling intentional) of Herself, the Cold and Joyless. Kosovo should have been a settled issue in 1997. It has been kept artificially alive, and a contingent of our armed forces tied up there, FAR too long.
Diplomacy? Herself can’t even negotiate one little bomb threat in a distant storefront office of her campaign without going into lockdown mode.
Where is Bush””

What?! No UN mandate! How "unilateral" of Hillary...
She is a piece of work. *shaking head*
