Sure..why not? let's give the Muzzie Albanians what they ask for...we already supply them with the means to destroy Christian communities why not even more.


An undated picture shows an Albanian armed man guarding his agricultural land planted with cannabis sativa, in the southern region of Lum Vlora, in the district of Vlora. Many Albanian families support themselves by planting cannabis sativa, which is illegally transported to nearby countries and used to produce hashish.

It's less about drugs and more about the Merida Initiative and marching to integration.

Virginia Ridgerunner should win an award for posting the best visual representation of the US giving money to the Jihadist state of Kosovo.

In Iraq, we spend money to fight Jihad terrorism.

In Kosovo, we give money to reward it.

Pretty damn stupid, really.

And I see canuck_conservative has once again gone back on his announcement to stay off the Balkans threads.

Like a mindless moth to the flame, really.

It's good to see that you're still with us. I was so afraid that you had been killed!

"The reports say 13 of those killed were leaders of Somalia's Islamic Courts Union or the al-Shabab militant group. They say one of those killed was a Canadian colonel whose name is on a list of international terrorists".

You're very right in your post, Boka! It's all for the benefit of the globalist/NWO kingpins and their pet politicians. That's why we will have the dubious "choice" between two arch-globalist major-party candidates for President in November.

Besides that, we are paying jizya to the Kosovar Shiptars, the "Palestinians", and other muslim miscreants. I would NEVER pay jizya to the muslims on my own, but our government mis-leaders take my tax money and do it anyway.

You beat me to it, with the idea of jizya.

As with all “protection money”, we must keep paying it, over and over, to allegedly keep the muslims from attacking us. But they can attack us anyway, and they’re ALWAYS very active in undermining us, even when they are not perpetrating direct violence!!!

And I see that you are frightened by the truth and attack those who dare speak it.

"The Kosovo-Albanians have played us like a Stradivarius. We have subsidized and indirectly supported their violent campaign for an ethnically pure and independent Kosovo.We have never blamed them for being the perpetrators of the violence in the early '90s and we continue to portray them as the designated victim today in spite of evidence to the contrary. When they achieve independence with the help of our tax dollars combined with those of bin Laden and al-Qaeda, just consider the message of encouragement this sends to other terrorist-supported independence movements around the world. Funny how we just keep digging the hole deeper!"—Maj-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie

The truth is he was bought-and-paid-for by a Serbian lobby group for only $15,000.

Hardly an objective opinion. Try again.

Far more than a speaker’s fee.

Pffft! That's a mediocre speaker's fee in the US! Guys that do speeches at High School Graduations pull down more than that! LOL!

Wow, thanks for that data! I didn't know all that much has been spent -- and add to that our cost for the 1999 NATO Bombing, the cost of building Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo or the cost of maintaining troops there!

The real jizya is actually much higher than these numbers -- and just what are we getting out of this? Because 9/11 happened AFTER we bombed the Serbs for them, so we aren't even getting "protection"!

"Far more than a speaker’s fee."

You've obviously never tried to do any kind fund-raising among American Serbs. If McKenzie got a whopping $15,000 in speakers fees, it was a one-time big deal effort to raise it. American Serbs make the Scots look like "spendthrifts" when it comes to the kind of fund-raising you are talking about, which is partly why they have been so poor at getting their message across.

On the other side of the issue, the Albanians had a mafia that was more than willing to open their very large, narco-sex slaving purses on their behalf, because Kosovo was the center of their trade.

Today's Kosovo is the largest money-laundering center in the world -- not just for the Albanian mafia, but also for EU and US politicians and their business cronies. They collectively take millions (billions) of our tax dollars, pour it into Kosovo, and yet nothing there changes for the better. Kosovo still only has power for a few hours a day, almost 50% of the population are still unemployed, new mosques are sprouting like weeds and the handful of ridiculously rich are building larger houses, but the majority of residents are living in abject poverty. It's a joke -- a very bad joke -- at US & EU taxpayers expense!

Check out this video made for Greek TV before Kosovo declared independence, on Kosovo's economic viability as an independent state. It's subtitled in English and it points out the level of corruption. Most of the people in it are Albanians and they speak their mind.

We need to rein in international commitments, especially the very expensive costs of maintaining a worldwide military presence, as a key first step to restructuring our budget and economy in a fashion that will allow Americans to provide for themselves.

What’s a few hundred million here or there, when you must play the ‘chess games’ played by the liberals at the foggy bottom who are destroying our country and those we seek to help with their idiocy.

Seeking to play God around the world is always counterproductive, let these third world backwater countries rot on their own without our ‘help’.

Ah, but it's worse than that -- Kosovo is our own little personal Frankenstein that we helped create, beginning with the 1999 NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia and culminating with illegally ripping off a piece of Serbia and recognizing it as "a new country" called Kosovo this last February. We didn't just find this new place to throw money at, we created it -- as the single largest money-laundering operation in the world! Politicians in the EU and US throw our tax dollars into the Kosovo pot and then they personally take a cuts home for themselves and their cronies.

Ain't "spreading democracy" wonderful?

Kosovo Pins Economic Hopes On Donors' Conference

"Organized by the European Commission, the conference is to be held in Brussels Friday with the target of raising EUR1.4 billion for Kosovo expenditure in 2009- 2011....Donors have already contributed around EUR3.0 billion to Kosovo since ...1998-1999....That was in addition to funding from the U.N., which has pumped almost as much money in to service its interim mission in Kosovo, known as UNMIK, since the conflict."

That's about $12.4 Billion, if anyone is counting. And that doesn't count the cost of the NATO Bombing, or Serbia's cost in still maintaining about 250,000 refugees (of ALL ethnicities -- Serb, Roma, Gorani & even other Albanians) that NATO & the KLA permanently drove out of Kosovo.
