Well I may be a kid but I sure as hell don't go around giving lectures on subjects I know nothing about.

Au contraire, mon frere.

Strange, but you Serb-haters 'know' more about Serbs than Serbs themselves...

I'm not a Serb hater, Voj, but I know you better than you seem to know your little nationalist self.

(Package check... still there, whew!)

All you know is the 'facts' you've got from the ICG, HRW and CNN.

All I know is that I just had to look up the ICG to see who they were (don't think I've ever seen anything but a tangential reference to them here on F.R.), do view HRW as a respectable source of information, as they still have the only realistic assessment of Yugoslavian civilian casualties during the War and just published a magnum opus on the Kosovo conflict which will be belittled by all the right people:

Yugoslav arrmy chief-of-staff general-collonel Nebojsa Pavkovic in his statement for FoNet news agency on Sunday, labelled the claims made by organization for protecion of human rights Human Rights Watch related to his involvement in crimes against Kosovo Albanians in 1999 as "idiotic statements of certain persons with complexes."

Ah, yes, how predictably sweet - he'll get his chance to defend himself someday too, I hope.

And lastly, I don't have a Television, and CNN is rather more for the short attention span set - sorry, but you're talking smack again.

I suppose I can look on the bright side and rest easy with the knowledge that you're up in Canada where you can't get yourself into much real trouble, and don't worry, I've been enjoying the ride ever since Milo went to the Hague and started throwing temper tantrums - it's really quite fascinating to reflect that he actually wound up in charge of a European Nation.

I was only talking about MY RIGHT to be a nationalist. I am a right-winger but I don't go mental if I encounter a non-Serb. I come from an area where there are 28 national minorities and where the Serbs have been on the receiving end for quite some time - you know "the state of the citizens" where, paradoxically, everyone seems to get encouraged about realising their national aspirations BUT the HOST NATION, and similar shite. The only reason I come across as a nationalist is because I have experienced first-hand how LITTLE the Serbs in Vojvodina matter, even though they make up almost 70% of the population. I don't like it. Everyone is allowed to have their rights protected and pursue national interests (within Serbia!) but the Serbs, right? Well, screw that.

It really was high time someone dealt with that crap.
