Bush and Rice are building their 'legacy' on the corrupt Clinton administration's stupidity!

More meddling in a situation that our political, socialist hacks screwed up miserably.

It also could lead to an Albanian Civil War, which would make the breakup of Yugoslavia look like a walk in the park.

“Bush and Rice are building their ‘legacy’ on the corrupt Clinton administration’s stupidity!”

Bush’s legacy will be a string of smoking ruins of Eastern Christian churches and ravaged Eastern Christian communities from the Adriatic to the Iran/Iraq border...and that string is 100% Bush’s to own. After 8 years it does no good to blame Clinton, no matter how much that sob and his cabal deserve it.

Did not the “peace treaty” state plainly that Kosovo was to remain part of Serbia? Did not the USA sign on to that?

You’re just jealous because Kosovo is gaining their independence while we are on the verge of losing ours.

Yes, yes it did. But, you see, that’s all in the past. It is time to move forward. We should look to the future, lest we suffer the fate of Lott’s wife. Etc., etc.

This will further destablize Europe with drugs, prostitution and other criminal activity.

So this is how our great "anti-terrorist" president fights islamic terror. He supports an independent moslem terrorist state in the Balkans and goes on record as favoring another one in the heart of 'Eretz Yisra'el.

What a disappointment this man has turned out to be. Any possibility we could draft Hal Lindsay or John Hagee?

Everything was just fine and dandy over there till Boosh screwed it up. /s

Because only the Serbs are the ones over there with their heads on straight. /s

"Kill and hang them until there's no Albanians left!" cried some of the protesters.

Deranged genocidal freaks on both sides.

Since borders can be redrawn after Jihadists use violence, how long before our southern border with Mexico is redrawn and we end the “occupation” of conquered Texas, Arizona and New Mexcio.

This further reinforces that Bush is a dimwit.

“Deranged genocidal freaks on both sides”

But only one side looks forward to a world-wide Caliphate. Don’t let the allure of the high road “they are both evil!” distract you from that basic fact.

I saw on the news that he did say this BUT he will make an official statement regarding the situation tomorrow. The State Dept. Is “reviewing the situation” and “discussing it” with EU member states...according to the report I just heard.

The establishment of an Islamic terror state (ITS) in Europe is near completion. Next step: the establishment of a “Palestinian” ITS in Israel’s backyard, lead by the Bush admin. and the Israeli libs. These are good days for “the religion of peace.”

Fine. So the mooslimbs who want to kill Christians because of their religion go on one side of an international border, and Serbs who think genocide will solve all their problems go on another side.

Anyone crossing that line are now operating a war, not the "internal civil matters" b**SH*t that let the inability of these two freaks get so fd up in the first place such that NATO ended up bombing them in the thirteen-thousand-and-fifty-eighth-place.

Were you for-or-against splitting up Iraq pre-surge?

The saudis want a moslem country.

The state department has coupe’d condi rice.

The state department is more a function of jimmy carter than united states.

the president is only briefed on a pro-islam worldview.

why even bother with an election? just coronate hillary so bill clinton can start his third term.

Kosovo was created as a result of terrorism. Give in to this state, and what’s to keep FALN creating their own country, or to not recognize Kashmir as its own state or ...
BAD, bad precedent.
