Skip to comments.Obama's 'Incredible Mistake' Over Phantom Kosovo Referendum
Posted on 03/29/2014 3:44:40 PM PDT by DTA
U.S. President Barack Obama has caused confusion after claiming yesterday that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination misleading people over the true origins of the country. The U.S. President used the example to hit out against Russia's annexation of Crimea, but experts have noted that no such referendum took place, and implied that Obama's "incredible mistake" should elicit a retraction or correction from the White House.

Valarie Jarret needs to watch what she’s saying. Its not like Putin isn’t willing to use Obama’s words against him.
Stop posting this leftwing Putinista Fan Boy Crap, everyone knows that site is cr....Ummmm. OOOps. Never-mind.
Coming from the guy who had no idea what a Navy corpsman is — it’s no surprise.
How is this gaffe playing in the media?
This mistake is negligible when compared to “potatoe.”
Now eat your peas, you racist.
Not sure where you’re coming from about the “leftwing Putinista Fan Boy Crap.” This story is actually true, and not delivered by state-owned media.
That must be an old pic but I never saw it before.
I had a really good laugh at that!
I see that ITAR-TASS, RT, and Voice of Russia are giving it play.
He misspoke and/or we misunderstood.
Bush’s/Fox news/underlings’/Goldstein’s fault.
Etc., etc., blah blah blah.
A google search finds Russia, FOX News and Conservative bloggers only.
Nothing to see here.
Then it MUST be Russian propaganda!
Well, at least he didn’t call it a coupe! 8^)
The gaffes are coming in faster and faster for the Boy Genius. Is it wrong for me to be enjoying this train wreck so much.
I am really not sure what sort of point they were trying to make, but you cant just make up your own facts to boost your own argument. That is ridiculous, he concluded. (Serbian historian Nebojsa Malicded.)
I bet two-thirds of the population nodded and thought, "yeah, like the Kosovo referendum".
He reads what ignorant idiots write for him.
Obunga bungled again.
Cut the guy some slack, it’s not like he misspelled potato or something important like that
Nope, George Soros.
By 1998, the scandal-plagued Clinton found any page-turning opportunity welcome. He picked up the genocide theme and ran with it. Providing what would later become Obamas Libya-war blueprint, Clinton instigated an unauthorized, undeclared, and ultimately disastrous war, in the absence of any threat to the United States, ostensibly to protect civilians but in reality on behalf of the Muslims.
Clintons State Department warned the Serbs that NATO bombing would commence unless they agreed not only to withdraw forces from Kosovo but to an arrangement whereby Kosovo would surely be granted full independence from Serbia after three years. The Serbs refused. Clinton miscalculated that the Serbs would quickly blink and that his aerial attacks, though lawless, would be brief and easily forgotten. Instead, the Serbs did not surrender and the bombing went on for nearly three months, causing far more damage than the carnage it was ostensibly meant to stop, while the killing intensified on the ground.
This nullissime guy really does think he can say and do whatever he wants, anywhere and whenever he wants with impunity? Not anymore.
Being caught red-handed in an affair of such importance, just shows the world how the US is ready to twist the hisorical facts, if it suits its agenda. This kind of lies don’t work in the age of non-stop information online. No slave media can save him from ridicule and contempt.
Screw-ups all over with this regime here’s just one of the latest or is it a screw up?Courtesy of Gateway Pundit:
While slapping Russia publicly on the wrist, the Obama Administration has been giving Russia FREE high tech military equipment.
Judicial Watch reported:
Behind closed doors the U.S. government is giving Russia free military equipmentalso used to train American troopseven after President Obama announced punitive sanctions against Moscow and, more importantly, a suspension in military engagement over the invasion and occupation of Ukraine.
The secret operation was exposed this week by members of Congress that discovered it in the process of reviewing the Fiscal Year 2014 budget and the proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget request. It turns out that the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has been providing the Russian Federation with the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES), the federal legislators say. The U.S. military uses MILES for tactical force-on-force training because it has a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat.
Its a crucial, military-grade technology thats similar to a laser tag available in some commercial markets, according to one of the outraged lawmakers (Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine) that helped uncover the scandal. Bridenstine, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has joined forces with Ohio Republican Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, to demand an end to the program. Along with about a dozen other House colleagues they penned a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who oversees the agency carrying out the irresponsible military equipment transfers to Russia.
ICWHATUDO was only kidding - see the smiley face? This is from Breitbart, and the story is true. Clinton, Tony Blair, Wesley Clark are war criminals for what they ordered in Serbia. That’s where NATO aligned with the muslims and haven’t looked back.
Comparing Kosovo and Crimea access to independence and the campaigns preceding them,
Q: How long lasted the bombing campaign?
A: USNATO military campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavialasted for 11 weeks until June 10, 1999.
No bombing in Crimea.
Q:How many ordinance bombed Yugoslavia versus Ukraine/Crimea ?
A: NATO launched 2,300 missiles at 990 targets and dropped 14,000 bombs;
Russia launched ... none.
Q: How many died in Yugoslavia versus Ukraine/Crimea?
A: 2,500 civilians were killed, including 88 children, and thousands more were injured in Serbia. Some 7,000 died in Kosovo proper. Over 200,000 ethnic Serbs were forced to leave their homeland in Kosovo.
Two died by sniper fire in Crimea.
Q: How many civilian buildings were destroyed?
A: NATO airstrikes destroyed more than 300 schools, libraries, and over 20 hospitals. At least 40,000 homes were either completely eliminated or damaged and about 90 historic and architectural monuments were ruined.
In Crimea, NO building was damaged.
What is the US/EU/NATO conclusion on all that? Kosovo independence is “legal”, while Crimea’s is “illegal”. Go figure.
“He reads what ignorant idiots write for him.”
He hired idiots to write idiot speeches for him.
“He misspoke and/or we misunderstood.”
Translation in plain English:
He lied and/or we didn’t believe his lies.
Another reason US won’t do anything about Crimea:The Russians are our only ticket to space exploration.
Russia is a key nation at the International Space Station, and US astronauts rely on Soyuz spacecraft to get to the orbiting outpost and back, having lost direct access since the US space shuttle fleet retired in 2011.
The United States pays Russia some $70 million to ferry each American astronaut to the space station and back, a deal that is expected to last for several more years until private US enterprises build the capacity to carry space travelers again.
Dr. James Ker-Lindsay, a Senior Research Fellow on the Politics of South East Europe at the London School of Economics:
“It will certainly play into the hands of those who believe that the United States is now trying to rewrite history to put a better gloss on its own actions. It will be interesting to see if a retraction or correction is issued by the White House.”
He has his work cut out for him.
For the last time, let’s see the Transcripts, Barry.
If the Obama Ministry of Truth states that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination then that is what happened.
Denyers of the New Reality as defined by Obama will soon find themselves ridiculed in all the media and by all of their liberal acquaintances.
