    That’s what Muslims do—they cry foul when the hand of justice (finally) grabs them by the scruff of their necks. Albanians are no different than any other Mohammedan heathens.

    If the Ossetian separatists are radical Muslim terrorits then does this shows that Putin has learned nothing from the Moscow theater incident.

    Kosovo Albanians are Muslim terrorists/separatists, too. The US has supported them, despite their Muslim radicalism (not limited to Serbia/Kosovo)... and 9/11.

    The big secret is that Kosovo is overwhelmingly inhabited by people neither Serb nor Christian and it has been that way for centuries.

    Dude, please brush up on your history of the region before you come out with stuff like this. Up until the 60s (1960s, that is), the population was roughly evenly split - half Serb, half Albanian. Then the Albanians got their "autonomy" (1968, expanded in 1974) and the Serbian population began steadily declining. By 1989 every 10th person in Kosovo-Metohia was of Serbian descent, as opposed to every other. That was the only ethnic cleansing occurring in Kos-Met.

    The passage is irrelevant. It mentions "leaders" of Serbia (not by name, btw). The citizens of Belgrade/Serbs overthrew their government on March 27, 1941 PRECISELY because the government was not exactly anti-Nazi (their pro-Nazism is questionable, too. They just wanted to keep Yugoslavia out of the war). One week later, Hitler ordered complete destruction of Yugoslavia, and especially Serbia/Belgrade. Look it up under Operation Punishment. It's not like the Belgraders welcomed the Nazis with flowers...you know, the way Croats in Zagreb did. End of story.

    It’s not about Albania! It’s about the “state” of Kosovo! The Albanian terrorists and Al-Qaeda darlings in Pristina will run the show. Kosovo will annex Albania, not the other way around.

    Welcome to FR. The Radicals will never be in power, so your concerns are rather unfounded. And when did Serbia “start 4 wars”?

    Because I know what's been transpiring in Kosovo since 1945 and I see no hope. It's a backward hellhole run by illegal immigrants doing all kinds of illegal stuff (white slavery, arms, drugs...). Serbia needs to go back in and take these monkeys out.

    Accomplished businessman and practicing Muslim Luan Berisha told me that 90 percent of Kosovars support Israel in the Arab-Israeli conflict. I don’t know if that’s really true. But if so it means Kosovo is more pro-Israel than even the United States.

    Oh, is that why they ethnically cleansed all the Jews from the province? Albanians are a bunch of mediaeval heathens, and they'll be falling over themselves kissing your arse -- but you'd better grow a pair of eyes on your back.

    Comment - Kosovo looks like an American success and there is no Caliphate there.

    Sure, if by America you mean the worst ghetto in Flint, MI. Kosovo's unemployment is at around 70% and not even the basic services exist (garbage collection, for example). The prices have gone up 50% over the last 2 months (i.e. since the illegal, unilateral separation from Serbia).

    They slept in farmhouses and small villages. Walpusk said people who barely had enough to feed their families went without food to feed the Americans. They let the airmen sleep in their beds while they slept on dirt floors and in barns.

    You bitch and moan about how evil America is, but for some reason you choose to stay here in the greatest and most prosperous country in the world.

    The people who disagree can argue to change the policy or to change the government at the next election.

    You still believe that? You're way too optimistic, Sulla. "The people" NEVER mattered. What *they* think is irrelevant. Certainly, no U.S. government will ever fall over what it's done in the Balkans...or elsewhere in the world. Nixon went down over Watergate, not Vietnam.

    The U.S. national interest? Everything the U.S. has done in the Balkans since 1991 runs contrary to that interest (whatever the heck it is!). It boils down to appeasing the world's Muslims at the expense of Christians and pleasing the Real Boss - Riyadh. Two-bit State Dept 'diplomats' have hijacked America's foreign policy and are sowing the seeds of yet another bloodletting in the Balkans.

    Everytime the foreigners start meddling, a war breaks out. The peoples of the Balkans are no less civilized than you, Mr. User of Pompous Nicknames.

    Bull$hit. While nobody here claims that Albanians didn't exist prior to the census in question, it is an absolute fact that there were (almost) no Albanians in Kosovo-Metohia before the Turkish invasion/conquest (1457).

    The Illyria myth is nice, but baseless, ridiculous and preposterous. The Romans had long since wiped most of the Illyrians off the face of the earth (see Illyrian Wars; 229BC and 219BC; final destruction 169BC). The Albani were just one of the dozens of Illyrian tribes (who sharedthe Balkans with some Celtic and Venetic tribes, such as the Histri, Liburni, Colapiani...) and they NEVER inhabited any lands north of the present-day south-central Albania. Therefore, their historical "right" to Kosovo-Metohia is non-existent.

    The Serbs certainly weren't the first ones to live in Kosovo, but they got there at least 750 years before any Albanian ever set foot in Kosovo-Metohia. The Serbian towns and the names of those towns, as well as of Kosovo's rivers, valleys, mountains, hills, etc; the hundreds of churches, monasteries, etc all bear witness to the Serbian origin and ownership of today's Kosovo-Metohia. It has been inhabited by Serbs since the 6th century.

    To this day, the Serbian government has the deeds to some 60% of Kosovo-Metohia, whereas the Serbian Orthodox Church owns the rest (Metohia; private property donated to the SOC by Serbia's mediaeval nobility and/or state).

    Kosovo is Serbia. Plain and simple.

    Well, what are those administrative divisions in Kosovo?

    They're called municipalities (opshtinas). Bosnia has cantons. You might've meant Bosnia, not Kosovo.

    A “Kosovar” is a resident of Kosovo. Most of them are ethnic Albanians, yes. But it's a useful concept if you reject the concept that every ethnic Albanian must be in Albania.

    Nope. Again, they can be Albanian-Serbians (just like, say, Irish-Americans, Dutch-Americans...) or, simply, Albanians ("Shiptar",borrowed from the Albanian "Shqipetar", is the name used to refer to those Albanians living in Serbia, so as to differentiate them from those living in Albania).

    "Kosovars" thus don't exist as a people or a nation. (Much like "Bosnians" -- you're either Croat, Serb or a mix of the two exhibiting the tendency to use Turcisms in your speech). You can be any of the minorities (well, not any more -- they've all been ethnically cleansed from the Albanian-dominated parts of Kosovo), but that does not make you a "Kosovar." If you meant "Kosovar" as a term describing one's geographic background -- like "Bostonian," "New Yorker," etc -- then you're the rare exception. In the real world, the term is loaded.

    I'm sorry you don't like my point of view, but calling me stupid or imply I'm ignorant of the history. I've been watching this area since 1992, sadly.

    I apologize if it seemed like it was my intention to insult you. It's not that I don't like your point of view -- it's just plain not based on facts.

    Nope. We had an orchestrated break-up of a country that was a thorn in the side of the Empire and the Serbs just happened to be the most numerous and the most stubborn... not to mention the most dispersed of all the tribes (i.e. a potential threat to the new statelets). So, in the name of multiethnicity and in order to destroy nationalism once and for all, a multiethnic Yugoslavia was destroyed and a multiethnic Serbia is being destroyed. What is left in their wake is a patchwork of ethnically pure entities (full of rabid nationalists, but our nationalists mind you) incapable of self-sustenance.
