    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 know, the way Croats in Zagreb did. End of story.

    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).

    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.

    History grad here.The fact that SOME third tribes (or even civilizations, such as the Romans) lived in "Serbia" prior to the arrival of the Serbian tribe(s) there obviously means that the Serbs aren't the first people to inhabit those lands. But, suffice it to say, no one's even disputing that.

    However, they were there before the "Albanians," because the "Albanians" (a non-existant name at the time, obviously) represented a statistical error in Kosovo's population according to the Turkish census conducted some 8 centuries after the Serbian arrival. Actually, the population is almost exclusively Serb.

    Furthermore, I was talking about the last 60 years when I said "illegal aliens." It was a well-known policy of the Communist rulers of Yugoslavia to have an open-door immigration policy toward Stalinist Albania. God knows who entered Serbia during those years. Conveniently enough, they created (the autonomous region of) Kosovo and kept expanding its jurisdictions and powers in order to further weaken Serbia. When the Minister of Interior of Serbia at the time started asking questions, he was promptly removed by Tito (1966).

    Serbs have fought Catholic Croats was well as Muslim Bosnians and Kosovars. The claim that Serbia is fighting Islamic terrorism is window dressing. Serbia wants every canton with a majority of Serbians to be part of Serbia. Fine. That implies allowing the rest of Kosovo to got its own way, and allowing Croat cantons to join Croatia, and so forth. They haven’t allowed that.

    What the hell are you talking about? Cantons? What cantons? Before you start shooting your mouth off, learn a thing or two about the history of the region. "Kosovars" don't exist -- much like "Palestinians." It isn't a nation, a people. There are Serbs (indigenous) and there are Albanians (illegal aliens / occupiers).

    Regarding the fighting, the Serbs were only trying to defend themselves (learning a thing or two the hard way in 1941/2) and trying to prevent the sequel to WWII (which never really ended in Yugoslavia).

    No, there isn't such a language. There is Serbian and there is Croatian. Serbo-Croatian is a bastard langugage that somehowe existed without anyone ever speaking it.

    As I said. I.e. "hanjar/hanzar" is not a verb meaning to "slit the throat" but a noun meaning "sword."

    Maybe it has a different meaning. Maybe it could be used as a verb. I don't know. I don't speak Turkish nor Arabic.

    If it was governed directly by the Germans, why did Nedic exist?

    Because they needed a puppet. Serbia was run by Berlin through Nedic, as was its northern region of Banat (run by a certain Josef Schpiller, a Gestapo officer; Banat was actually annexed to the Reich). Croatia did not need Nazi oversight. They were plenty capable of being more Nazi than their overlords.

    Nedic governed Serbia for just over three years, not one month.

    Exactly my point. If the Nazis hadn't been there to back him up on the ground, he wouldn't have lasted a month.

    In point of fact, Nedic's Serbian followers were Hitler's ally, not America's - and the anti-Nedic Serbs, who eventually coalesced into the most important stabilizing element of Tito's postwar Communist regime, were largely pro-Soviet - they were allies of America only insofar as the Soviets were allied with America.

    Bullshit revisionism. Most of Serbia's citizens were pro-Britain and pro-US and supporters of the Serbian Monarchy. To call them Communists is ridiculous. Most of them supported the Royalilst Chetniks who saved 500+ U.S. and other allied pilots shot down during the attacks on Ploesti and the other oil fields in Romania. They were the first anti-Nazi guerrilla army in occupied Europe.

    The Communist minority eventually prevailed following a campaign of disinformation against the Allied leaders. The Communists in the British secret service who were deployed in Yugoslavia fed London all kinds of fairy tales. Churchill fell for it hook, line and sinker. The Royalists were abandoned soon thereafter and London and Washington began supporting Tito and his Communists.

    There is no such language as Serbo-Croatian. Hanjar is the Turkish-style sword similar to the scimitar. Nedic did not enjoy popular backing. Serbia was the only occupied territory in the Balkans governed directly by the Germans — I wonder why. Could it be because the Serbs were anti-Nazi and no puppet-regime could survive one month on its own? Serbs are not Croats. Serbs were America’s ally, unlike Croats who murdered 750,000 Serbs and Jews and fought the Allies on quite a few fronts.

    Joe, reading thru your posts here, the only thing you feel Serbia has done wrong is selling the NIS to Russia instead of selling the co. to the West. And my response still stands: had anyone in the West/U.S. had any brains, they would have been in the position to reap the economic/financial benefits of supporting Serbia. Instead they opted for being Serbia's enemy.

    Nabucco is dead. Bulgaria and Hungary, as you know, have signed on the dotted line re. the South Stream. Russia controls 45% of the EU's energy supplies. Other EU countries would be well advised to turn to Russia and stop being the pawns of the U.S.

    As someone who knows Serbs very well, they don't like Russia more than they do America. However, given America's policies towards Serbia over the last 2 decades, Serbs feel betrayed beyond belief. They feel dissapointed by America and saddened by the fact that a bunch of corrupt bureaucrats have hijacked America's foreign policy and have made America, Serbia's great ally in two world wars, their country's enemy. Serbs still consider their saving of over 500 U.S. and other Allied pilots in 1944 a deed worth the Serbian deaths it caused. They never, ever forget.

    If Kosovo independence is illegal, then so would Mitrovica independence be illegal. For Serbia to recognize Mitrovica independence, they would have to recognize Kosovo independence first.

    No. Northern Kosovo isn't going to proclaim independence. It is going to proclaim that it doesn't wish to separate from Serbia. Since it is majority Serbian, I think those people have the right to decide for themselves where they want to live, following the example set by Kosovo Albanians. However, given that pretty much all the mineral wealth is situated north of the Ibar (i.e. North Kosovo)...

    It's up to the international community to decide whether they want another Middle East or Northern Ireland or a frozen conflict such as Cyprus, where the two sides can work it out in peace, at the table.

    Kosovo's GDP is on par with that of Rwanda. That's speaking volumes about the viability of this "state." $2B has poured into Kosovo since 2000 and it has had absolutely no impact whatsoever. Bush has just earmarked $300M for Kosovo this year. Talk about wasting taxpayers' money. The Albanians there have traditionally been hostile to the rule of law (any law that's not clan-based and rooted in mediaeval times, that is), any form of authority, voluntary payments (utility bills, for example)... Due to the fact that corruption is rampant whilst the Serbian province is being governed by equally corrupt UN bureaucrats who don't want to rock the boat in fear for their lives, and the fact that unemployment is around 60%, I will become a viable state before Kosovo ever does.

    Serbia is incapable of controlling Kosovo. In the last few years, they've had a prime minister assassinated, a bunch of goons from the "Radical Party" elected to parliament, and rampant alcoholism. Nobody has any confidence in Serbia. They need to get their act together before they become a failed state entirely. NATO has the resources and standing to get the job done in Kosovo. I trust NATO much more than Serbia.

    Are you serious? You can't be serious. "Rampant alcoholism"? LOL! You missed the "bayonetting of Albanian babies" part. The only places in the Balkans approaching a failed state are the ones run by NATO/UN: Bosnia & Kosovo. Serbia has had a 6%-7% growth per year since 2004, unemployment is falling, FDI stood at $5B last quarter, the Belgrade Stock Exchange is white hot and tourism is booming again. Meanwhile, Albanians in Kosovo can't even take care of the garbage collection duties. The fact that the Radicals are in the Parliament is proof that Serbia's democracy works. You win the votes - you get the seats.

    Oh, btw, the electricity and half the water needs in Kosovo for the past 9 years have been provided by Serbia. Free of charge.

    This must be a trick question, because I've never heard of a "Serb-Nazi". Albanian Nazis, Croatian Nazis, Bosnian Muslim Nazis - yes. "Serb-Nazi"?!

    The embassy was attacked when no-one was there. No US diplomats, let alone their families, were threatened in any way, shape or form. Watch the videos and you'll see that it was a bunch of 20-somethings who couldn't pass up the opportunity to vandalize foreign property (and Serbian, too -- mass looting of stores also took place; no different than L.A. 1992 or Detroit 1968) whilst 90% of the city's cops were tied-up securing the rally (according to James Lyon of the Soros-sponsored ICG, close to 1.5 million people were in downtown Belgrade). What these idiots did is understandable, but stupid and counterproductive.

    The U.S. has played this one like a bleeding amateur. Instead of supporting the Serbs (who were one of the staunchest U.S. allies in both World Wars, saving upwards of 500 Allied pilots in 1944 at a great cost to their civilian population among other things) and the inviolability of national borders, Washington sided with drug-smuggling, nun-raping and church-burning Islamofascist scum who have ethnically cleansed all of the Serbian province of Kosovo... well, except for a little patch in the North where Serbian and other communities live in fear for their lives.

    They are ideological descendants of the Balli Kombetar, yes. A bunch of mediaeval heathens who ought to be sent packing to a large cave complex somewhere in Central Asia.
