....Western countries in theon Wednesday said they would take the lead in steering the province to independence from Serbia over Russian objections, arguing that the potential for a negotiated solution had been exhausted through almost two years of failed Serb-Albanian talks.
NATO allies with 16,000 troops in Kosovo fear a Serb backlash in the north, which adjoins Serbia proper, and a possible bid to break away which could trigger regional unrest.
Analysts say Serbian sabotage of the reservoir would almost certainly provoke Albanian attacks on isolated Serb enclaves across the rest of Kosovo, where over half the remaining 120,000 Serbs still live.
A senior KFOR official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the force was wary of being drawn too far away from its primary task of preventing any escalation of violence.
"We do not underestimate the threat," he told Reuters. "But Serbia has to be careful of the consequences for its own community."
SerbBlog: Serbia has a right to defend it's territory. Now how and why should a strategic military and political decision like dealing with the water supply justify an Albanian rampage on 120,000 Serb civilians? But the article just prepped you to expect that when Kosovo Serb civilians start dying, it will be "Serbia's fault"! Unbelievable!
Shuck, a retired American general, is being investigated by the UN internal commission over his alleged ties with some Kosovo businessmen, politicians and sexual relations with UN staff as well as two ethnic Albanian popstars, the reports said.
His UN contract with the UN expires on 31 December, but an unnamed UN official said Shuck left Pristina (photo) on Tuesday after being informed that the contract would not be renewed. The official declined to comment further, saying it would be detrimental to the ongoing investigation.
Shuck admitted last September that he was probed for wrongdoing, but claimed the accusations against him were unjustified. Some UN staffers had accused Shuck of arrogant behaviour.
Shuck is also alleged to have kept close ties with former Kosovo prime minister Ramush Haradinaj, who is currently on trial for war crimes against Serb and ethnic Albanian civilians at the UN's Hague-based warcrimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
Haradinaj was a commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in western Kosovo during 1998-99 ethnic Albanian rebellion against Serbian rule when the alleged crimes were committed.
The investigation also focuses on Shuck's suspicious dealings with Kosovo energy minister Ethem Ceku in connection with a multimillion dollar project to build electric power plants in Kosovo, media reports said.

On December 6th, 2007 Transparency International, an international organization dedicated to monitoring the level of corruption in more that sixty countries, released their list of the top most corrupt "countries". The top five countries & territories with the highest level of bribery and corruption are:
4. FYR Macedonia
Albania, Kosovo and the FRY Macedonia not only made the top five, but are also geographically connected as part of what the Albanian American Civic League calls "ethnic Albania" -- a euphemism for "The Greater Albania" that they really intend to politically build, with US help.
These three regions also have in common that they are the main transit routes for exporting drugs, arms and sex slaves to Western Europe. In short, there are huge amounts of money passing through the region via the Albanian Mafia in spite of the fact that the official current reports say that Kosovo "unemployment" is over 40% and if granted independence, Kosovo will be on the EU and US aid dole for a very long time.
So what could possibly be so "attractive" to US & EU lawmakers and their cronies about "Kosovo gaining its independence" that would make it worth breaking every international law to accomplish it?
Perhaps, it is precisely this enormous level of corruption that makes Kosovo so damn attractive to these politicians!
Where else has 22 Billion Euros floated around for the last 8 years and accomplished absolutely nothing in terms of "building an economy"? Where else could you have no qualifications for a job and yet get hired at a six figure salary paid for by your tax dollars and mine? Where else in Europe could you buy a twelve year-old kidnapped virgin, a .50 caliber rifle and the same explosives used in the London & Madrid bombings, all in the same place? Only in Kosovo!
Want to give George Soros a mine worth $Billions for pennies on the dollar? "The Kosovo Trust" can sell him the Trepca Mine -- and they will ignore the fact that it is actually Serbia's property. They call it "privatizing", instead of the "plundering" that it really is!
Soros supports politicians, and politicians support Soros -- by cooperatively stealing from others who can't fight back. It's a good gig if you can get it and not get caught!
And then there is Camp Bondsteel -- a permanent mega military base built by Halliburton (think Dick Cheney) subsidiary, Kelogg, Brown and Root Construction at a cost to US taxpayers of $350 million to build and $50 Million a year to maintain. Kosovo's fate was determined before the first bit of construction on Bondsteel began, because you don't build a permanent military base on someone else's soil without their permission unless you have already decided to steal Kosovo from them.
But what about "freeing the Kosovars"? Isn't that what Kosovo Independence is supposed to accomplish?
My question is "what Kosovars"?
Over 300,000 Kosovo Serbs, Jews and Roma were permanently ethnically cleansed from Kosovo during the 1999 NATO bombing. Did they get a vote in this independence issue? No! How about the many Kosovo Albanians who ran to Serbia to get away from the KLA? Did they get a vote? No! What about the Albanians from Albania who came flooding in to Kosovo after the 1999 NATO Bombing? Ooops, yes they did -- seems there is a greater advantage to "not actually being from Kosovo" if you want to vote in Kosovo elections, as long as you are some kind of "Albanian" and can improve the demographics argument in favor of Albanians.
When corruption is your business, you make the rules.
And yet, even knowing that the independence issue was on the table, only 43 percent of 1.5 million "eligible" Kosovo Albanian voters turned out to vote in the last election. If you run the numbers, only 645,000 people out of 1.5 million eligible Kosovo Albanian voters even voted at all and 219,300 voted for the pro-independence candidate, Hashim Thaci.
This means that even out of the eligible voters, less than 15% of the "eligible voters" actually voted for pro-independence candidate Thaci . Yet, unless you read the fine print in these mainstream news articles on the subject and run the numbers as I did, you'd think that 90% of the damn Kosovo Albanian electorate was behind Thaci, and they are not!
But does the "Kosovo vote" really even matter, when your US and EU sponsors want your "independence" even more than you do -- just so that they can bilk taxpayers and reward their cronies in one of the most corrupt places in the world? No, it doesn't. This is why, even before the UN-Sponsored "negotiations" between Serbia and the Kosovo Albanians were supposedly being facilitated by the US, Russia and the EU, US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice could say, "The US is committed to Kosovo independence" What that meant for the "negotiations" was that all the Kosovo Albanians had to do was sit there and give up nothing, because they knew that the US would ultimately give them what they wanted, anyway. Some "negotiations"!
The fact is that the US and EU don't give a damn about Kosovo or "the Kosovars" and they never did. The supposed 1999 "humanitarian bombing" was a lie to begin with so our politicians could use NATO to conquer a territory and sell off its assets to their political cronies. It was a bait and switch.
But they can't sell out Serbia, sell out ethics and sell out international law, without selling us all out. Once they do, then none of us are safe. A better question is, "Are we going to let them?"
P.S. December 9th was "UN Anti-Corruption Day". So did the UN initiate an investigation into the allegations against Marti Ahtisaari, after the formal requests from The American Council on Kosovo, and the Serbian government and the 1200 signatures on the Investigate Ahtisaari petition? Of course not! Once again proving that having an "Anti-Corruption Day" for the UN is the equivalent of having a "Chastity Day" at a whorehouse!

“What’s your connection to…this…Serbian thing?”
I get that a lot. I usually answer: “Just being an American hyper-patriot.”
That was, after all, my original motivation for protesting a war for the first time in my life at the age of 25. When my country bombed a European nation on behalf of Muslims making the usual claim of oppression, my concerns were two-fold: America’s security, and America’s soul.
It’s hard to describe the dizzying disorientation I felt on March 24, 1999, the day I learned that the United States was going through with bombing an ally from two world wars. It was more surreal than September 11, 2001, for on the latter date I wasn’t alone in my disorientation. But the fog that engulfed me for several weeks starting March 24th, 1999 as I observed people complacently sipping cappuccinos in outdoor cafes as if nothing was happening was overwhelming; I knew America had turned a dark corner and would pay a price.
Three phenomena at the time confirmed my instinctive suspiciousness about this so-called war: 1. The treacherous and otherwise anti-war Left loved it. 2. Congressional Republicans voted against the war by more than nine to one. 3. Bill Clinton was president, and foreign policy had never been his priority.
We’ve heard much from the Left since the start of the Iraq War in the way of “True patriots criticize their country.” They’re not wrong. But if ever there was a war that begged for scrutiny and dissent, it was Kosovo. Yet the dissent wasn’t there. The voices of all the supposed conscientious objectors never kicked in during a war that ran directly counter to the national interest. Indeed, a war that threatened American security was their must-do war. This told me that what these people are, are not dissenting patriots but dissenting partisans.
This criticism of U.S. policy in Kosovo comes from America’s most reluctant critic. My cartoonish patriotism forms the backbone of my stand-up comedy act and was the premise of a column I had on FoxNews.com, titled by my editor “The Smugly American.” But the Kosovo War, and the unchanging policy that supports it even post-9/11, made me a less smug American.
Unlike most America critics, who blame the U.S. with glee, it is only with great pain that I write against American policy in Kosovo, which is a continuation of a war that never ended and in which we’re about to deal ourselves the death blow this year as we hand victory to our jihad-friendly allies and call the victory our own. “No American casualties,” goes the ubiquitous Kosovo-War boast. That’s because its American casualties first appeared only two years later, with the Balkans serving as logistical support for attacks including 9/11, Madrid, London and Netanya. This year we got a glimpse of the toll that this war of self-sabotage will yet take--when four Albanians were discovered plotting to kill U.S. soldiers at Ft. Dix.
By shining a light on our Kosovo mischief, I am merely doing my duty as an American. But there are Americans who have a greater responsibility than I to save the U.S. from this bipartisan treachery, Americans who should be most on the case at this eleventh hour: Serbian-Americans. For those are the Americans who know better than any others the nature of the beast that we’re dealing with in the Balkans and what our actions there will result in. Serbs are the ones who are most intimately and brutally acquainted with the Balkan players, and it is their responsibility to inform their fellow Americans and influence civilians, soldiers, policymakers and media away from our suicidal policies in their homelands.
I understand the reasons that Serbs shy away from this duty. They want finally to be liked, and more than anything else to fit in; indeed, the modern Serb rejects his Serbhood. As well, a Serb knows he will instantly be painted with the “Oh, but this is coming from a Serb; of course you’d say that” brush. Notice this is never a consideration or stumbling block for the Serbs’ enemies, as the Albanians, Croatians and Bosnians guide the U.S. toward self-defeating policies on their behalf.
When faced with the “Serb propaganda” slur, a Serb should counter with, “Why is Muslim propaganda preferable?” Especially since Serb “propaganda” has been repeatedly consistent with our own intelligence.
Look what we know today about “Serb propaganda.” In addition to the reality of the Islamic threat in the Balkans which the Yugoslavian government had been warning about since the 70s and which the world dismissed, the concept of a “Greater Albania” was likewise laughed off as an archaic and dead idea kept alive only by Serb propagandists. Yet today Greater Albania is being implemented before our very eyes as the Albanians of Serbia’s Presevo Valley now call for inclusion with an independent Kosovo, and Kosovo Albanians are destabilizing Macedonia and Montenegro—and Greece.......Frontpage

On July 28, 1918, President Woodrow Wilson gave the following message to the American people. It was read in churches throughout the country and published in virtually all major newspapers. Serbian flag was raised over the White House and all public buildings in this nation's capital. The message read:
On Sunday, 28th of this present month, will occur the fourth anniversary of the day when the gallant people of , rather than submit to the studied and ignoble exactions of a prearranged foe, were called upon by the war declaration of Austria-Hungry to defend their territory and their homes against an enemy bent on their destruction. Nobly did they respond. (On June 28th, 1914 Gavrilo Princip Bosnian Serb assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand during his visit to )
So valiantly and courageously did they oppose the forces of a country ten times greater in population and resources that it was only after they had thrice driven the Austrians back and and had come to the aid of that they were compelled to retreat over the . While their territory has been devastated and their homes despoiled, the spirit of the Serbian people has not been broken. Though overwhelmed by superior forces, their love of freedom remains unabated. Brutal force has left unaffected their firm determination to sacrifice everything for liberty and independence.
It is fitting that the people of the United States, dedicated to the self-evident truth that is the right of the people of all nations, small as well as great, to live their own lives and choose their own Government, and remembering that the principles for which has so nobly fought and suffered are those for which the United States is fighting, should on the occasion of this anniversary manifest in an appropriate manner their war sympathy with this oppressed people who have so heroically resisted the aims of the Germanic nations to master the world. At the same time, we should not forget the kindred people of the Great Slavic race--the Poles, the Czechs and Jugo-Slavs, who, now dominated and oppressed by alien races yearn for independence and national unity.
This can be done in a manner no more appropriate than in our churches. I, therefore, appeal to the people of the United States of all faiths and creeds to assemble in their several places of worship on Sunday July 28, for the purpose of giving expression to their sympathy with this subjugated people and their oppressed and dominated kindred in other lands, and to invoke the blessings of Almighty God upon them and upon the cause to which they are pledged.
, July, 1918.

While the Muslim Kosovo Albanians build statues to Clinton and a mosque for Osama bin Laden, Serbia recalls America & Britain's heroes for freedom through a new billboard campaign to remind Serbian citizens the gravity of what they are fighting for in Kosovo.
George Washington: "The time is near at hand which must determine whether we are to be free men or slaves." Kosovo is Serbia!
Abraham Lincoln "On important issues we can not back down" Kosovo is Serbia!
Winston Churchill: “We will defend what is ours We shall never surrender” Kosovo is Serbia!
Unfortunately, as Srdija Trifkovic so eloquently pointed out , this will probably fall on deaf ears with Europe and America's political leadership because they despise their own history and past. Their self-hatred especially extends to anyone who tries to remind Americans and Brits who we used to be:
"These new ruling elites of Western Europe and North America have nurtured a number of fatal weaknesses in their own societies, including both the primary cause—which is the loss of Christian faith—and a number of secondary ones, including hostility to all forms of solidarity of the ethnically European and traditionally Christian communities based on their common ancestry and culture; the loss of a sense of place and history; rapid demographic decline, probably irreversible and unparalleled in history; rampant Third World immigration, especially from the Islamic world; imposition of “diversity,” “multiculturalism” and “sensitivity” that promotes alien cultures and lifestyles to the detriment of traditional European, Christian models; and last but by no means least, demonization and criminalization of any opposition to the above...
To the postmodern Western mindset, those who argue that they should be entitled to keep a land because they have a centuries-long historical bond to it, because their ancestors had built lovely Christian churches in it, because its heritage underpins their moral code and spirituality based on Christian martyrdom, and because they are defending themselves against an aggressive and resurgent Islam . . . anyone who makes those argument is unconsciously arguing—in the eyes of the new elite—in favor of having that territory taken away. The Serbs’ arguments—especially when presented eloquently and logically—only prove that Kosovo and Metohija must be detached from Serbia permanently as that is the only way to cure Serbia from such unhealthy, “un-European” atavisms."
If that doesn't scare the hell out of you, it certainly should. Because it means that the source of our pride as Americans and Europeans are the very things that the current political elite demand that we hate about ourselves. One difference between us and the Serbs, is that Serbs have been through this campaign of political terrorism before and they know who they are.
Four hundred years of Ottoman Turk dhimmitude, the Nazi German Luftwaffe and fifty years of communism tried to teach Serbs to hate themselves into surrender their culture and Faith, but ultimately none of those shameful oppressors succeeded in wiping out the Kosovo freedom cry written on every Serb heart "Better a grave than a slave!"
And it is for this very reason that the Western elite and their minions in our governments have singled out Serbs for extermination -- because you can't bomb, starve or shame the love of freedom & love of God out of a Serb. Serbs must be destroyed lest they "infect" any other people with this aberrant "love of Liberty". (Once upon a time, this was a role that proudly belonged to America.)
But what about us? Can you lie to, shame and manipulate ordinary Europeans and Americans into hating ourselves and our cultures enough to allow our governments to kill all that we believe in while we stand idly by? Sacrifice freedom, justice and honor in the name of an "EU & US Empire" and kill those for believing in the same principles we once stood for? That's a question that only we as citizens can answer -- especially while we still can still do so with a voice, a vote and a keyboard.
George Washington was right: "The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves."
Be a free American! Write President Bush and your Congressional Representatives and tell them"No!" on unilaterally recognizing an "Independent (Albanian) Kosova". "No" to risking the lives of American troops stationed in Kosovo, in order to support a corrupt US Balkan policy that rewards an illegal, jihadi, narco-terrorist "Albanian Kosova" with the trappings of statehood by killing Christians! "No!" to killing and destroying our Christian heritage in submission to ever-expanding and genocidal Islam! Just plain, "No!" to Western empire-building in our name!
Slavery for yourself and others? Or Freedom for yourself and others? Your choice.
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed;
if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly;
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight
with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival.
There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight
when there is no hope of victory,
because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
Prime Ministerial Adviser Aleksandar Simic says that there is still no solution to the Kosovo crisis anywhere in sight, but that Serbia intends to defend its province of Kosovo-Metohija by all the means it had at its disposal.
“When someone fails to respect the Security Council, the only body that ought to react in times when there is a threat of aggression and war, particularly when someone does not observe
VII of the United Nations Charter and the resolution that was adopted in line with it, then there is nothing else a country can do,” Aleksandar Simic said late on Tuesday, in a live broadcast on Radio-Television Serbia (RTS).
Asked what was missing in Serbia’s daily claims that it would fight for Kosovo using all legal and political means, he replied that war was also a legal means, when no other options to defend state sovereignty and territorial integrity remained.
“Serbia has had negative experiences from the armed clashes during the civil wars in the former Yugoslavia, and this is why we are more prudent and cautious now but, of course, state interests are defended by war as well — every state has the right to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity by all means necessary,” Simic stressed.
The Numbers Game — Only Around 1 Million Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo Province
A lawyer by profession, Simic also pointed to the numerous manipulations with the numbers in the Balkans in general, and in Kosovo-Metohija province in particular. He said that the constant claim in the Albanian and Western press that there are “close to two million ethnic Albanians” in Serbian province is false, and that the latest provisional elections, where allegedly only around 43 percent of Albanian voters have taken part in the elections, have confirmed the earlier census data according to which there is no more than 1,1 - 1,2 million of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. Therefore, the percentage of those who voted is much higher in reality, since these provisional elections in the province were considered crucial in giving the vote for independence, but the heavily blown up numbers that have, on paper, doubled the ethnic Albanian population supposedly residing in Serbian province of Kosovo, have left an impression that less than half of them voted.
If there is only around one million of ethnic Albanians in the Serbian province, that also means that there is at least 25 percent of Serbs remaining in Kosovo — significantly more than commonly parroted 10 or even only 5 percent of Serbs remaining in Kosovo-Metohija.
If, on the other hand, the number of ethnic Albanians in the Serbian province has indeed doubled to up to two million within the past few years, than such a poor response in the key elections, whereby less than half of ethnic Albanian voters took part, can only mean that the majority of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo couldn’t care less about independence, and would have no objection to Serbian offer of autonomy within Serbian state. A referendum in Kosovo-Metohija which would show the true mood of majority of Kosovo Albanians might be a good idea after all.
U.S. Couldn’t Give Part of Serbia to Albanians Back in 1999, but that’s What they Promised and Want to Deliver Now
Simic said that the attempts at negotiating a mutually acceptable solution between Serbian officials and Kosovo Albanian separatists have failed due to Albanian separatists refusal to even consider Serbian proposals and, generally, refusal to hear out any proposal except granting them independence. According to Simic, there is currently no agreement between Russia, which seeks continuation of negotiations and United States, which insists on granting independence to the Kosovo Albanians in southern Serbian province, thereby imposing dismemberment of another UN member-state, sovereign Serbia.
Simic explained that the attempted negotiations were unrealistic in the sense that they boiled down to delivering the independence on a silver platter, as the United States promised to Kosovo Albanian separatists back in 1999.
Murderous asshole Richard Holbrooke with his buddies, KLA terrorists: should Balkans be plunged into another war because Holbrooke has promised independence to KLA back in 1999?
“The independence was not realized back then because the illegal bombardment of Serbia had to be covered up by returning the issue back into the UN legal system, i.e. the UN Security Council and its Resolution 1244,” Simic said, adding that the West is now deciding whether to take it out of the legal framework once again and wrap the illegal and unlawful unilateral declaration of independence into the so-called “recognition of reality” or a fait accompli.
Heavyweight Serbophobic Troll, Richard Holbrooke, Admits Kosovo Albanian Separatists Were Promised Independence Back in 1999
In today’s interview, one of the most malignant Serbophobes, a violent, belligerent asshole that has caused much of the suffering in the Balkans with his murderous “diplomacy”, personal buddy of KLA terrorists and a beneficiary of their heroin trade used to finance the campaigns of the U.S. presidential nominees — Richard Holbrooke — has fully confirmed Serbian accusations that Western powers led by the United States have made a mockery out of negotiations they never wanted to succeed, simply because they promised “peaceful transition to independence” to the terrorist KLA seeking to dismember Serbia back in 1999.
According to Holbrooke, Russians under the drunken-Yeltsin leadership, while still firmly held in Soros’ pocket, were good and helpful — they even persuaded Serbian leadership to withdraw the army from Kosovo province in 1999. “Yet, Holbrooke says, [Putin’s] Moscow this time has been no help at all, encouraging Serbia’s stubbornness and declining to help work out an arrangement to allow Kosovo a peaceful transition to the independence it has been promised by the international community” [emphasis added].
It’s too bad Holbrooke won’t be able to deliver on his promise, since “peaceful transition” to anything seems to be out of the question. But instead of sending others’ sons to protect his KLA buddies in Serbian province, the least Holbrooke should do to show the weight of the word he gave would be to send his own sons to fight for their father’s beliefs in Kosovo.

A few days ago, presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton released a statement advocating the US unilaterally recognize the Albanian takeover of Serbia's Kosovo province as "a new country".
In proposing that the US unilaterally recognize "Kosovo Independence", Hillary Rodham Clinton is advocating that the United States:
1. Provide support & recognition for the establishment of the violent narco-terrorist state of Albanian Kosova run by war criminals and the Albanian Mafia, whose only current income comes from selling illegal drugs, kidnapping, sex slavery and arms dealing, yet which is otherwise economically nonviable and will be totally dependent on foreign aid (from our taxes) for many years to come.2. Support the desecration and theft of Christian land in order to create an overwhelmingly Muslim country in Europe. (Metohija in the original Serbian name for the place "Kosovo-Metohija", literally translates to "Land of Monasteries". Recognizing Kosovo Independence will turn "Land of the Monasteries" into "Land of the Mosques")
3. Legitimize ethnic cleansing and reverse ethnic cleansing as viable "political tools", providing the victims are not Muslim.
4. Push Democratic Serbia -- a needed ally in the war on terror -- solidly out of the US sphere of influence and spawn a more reactionary government in Serbia.
5. Sponsor new wars in the Balkans, as Albanians in Macedonia, Northern Greece, Montenegro and the rest of Southern Serbia have also expressed (often violently) a wish to secede land from their countries to create a "Greater Albania", beginning with "Kosovo Independence".
6. Weaken the concept of national sovereignty by setting a precedent for minorities everywhere (including in the US), who wish to secede land from the countries in which they live.
7. Solidify the use of NATO as "an aggressive entity", whose new charter will be to steal land from any country it chooses and and give it arbitrarily to any minority it sees fit, thereby reneging on NATO's original charter as a "defensive organization".
8. Violate the Helsinki Final Act of 1975 which the US not only signed, but also which the Commission on Organization & Security were designed to monitor and on which Hillary Rodham Clinton actually serves as a OSCE Commissioner! (Fire her, now!)
9. Bypass the UN Security Council, completely ignoring the objections of both UN Security Council members, Russia and China, and renege on UN Resolution 1244 which preserved the territorial integrity of Serbia.
10. Create a new Cold War with Russia, when Russia is actually on the legal and moral high-ground on this issue, while the US is legally and morally standing in a pit.
If anyone is silly enough to see Hillary Rodham Clinton a potential presidential "peace candidate" or think that her initial vote for the Iraq war was just an "Oops", think again. Hillary Clinton's support for US recognition of Kosovo Independence is not only a guaranteed formula for more wars in the Balkans, but also a demon seed guaranteed to spawn new conflicts around the globe -- and a new Cold War with Russia. Hillary Clinton is in fact more of a warmonger than most neon-cons, even if she wraps her bombs with the label "humanitarian" and claims to be "fighting genocide" when she is in fact, cheering on the genocide of anyone in her geopolitical way. The crumb she tossed to "full protection of the rights of all minorities in Kosovo, especially the Serbs " was a nice touch in her statement, but if thousands of NATO and UN troops haven't been able to protect the Serbs from rampaging, church-burning Kosovo Albanians in the last eight years when the now-scrapped "standards before status" game was on, Ms. Clinton knows that the Albanians have no reason to play nice when they finally get what they want.
According to Hillary-fan, Gail Sheehy' book, ( "Hillary's Choice", p.345), it was actually Hillary, personally, who in 1999 urged her husband to bomb Serbia on behalf of the Albanians. Hillary convinced then President Clinton to violate the US Constitution and NATO's charter to arm-twist NATO countries to go along with the bombing so that the US would not be left holding the bag, alone. The 1999 NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia created a wave of anti-American sentiment around the world that persists to this day because it was obvious that this was really American policy in action . Yet, could at least the NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia, if not the aftermath, be considered "a success"? No! Not even according to NATO, itself! But don't tell Hillary that! She, along with other members of the Clinton Administration nostalgically look back on the Clinton Balkan policy as "possibly their greatest achievement". That alone should tell you something, but then again Ms. Clinton must be hoping for voters too young or forgetful to remember her husband's empty promise eleven years ago of "American troops in Bosnia will be home by Christmas". (Eleven years later, those troops are still there.)
Given the fact that Bosnia and Kosovo are now unraveling, I can understand why Ms. Clinton would like to shift the blame to"the neglect of the Bush Administration". But, while President Bush can rightfully be blamed for many things, straying from the stupidly destructive, pro-jihadist Clinton course in the Balkans certainly isn't one of them. Even after Kosovo Albanians (aka "Kosovars") tried to cause as many American service casualties as possible at Fort Dix, President Bush has plowed ahead with globalist "Balkan Clintonia" --that mythic land where "Serbs (or what's left of them) will one day bow before the New World Order in gratitude for their servitude and thank America for finally making them to give in to the Islamic aggression that their ancestors wasted so much of their blood trying to resist". Mythic land, indeed -- and one where understandably no one, least of all the Serbs, wish to live.
A good question would be why Bush, the Clintonistas, and so many on both sides of the aisle in Congress are so keen to risk so much to push forward with what is obviously such a completely flawed policy in a part of the world that most Americans don't give a damn about. Could it be the millions of dollars that the Albanian lobby has poured into the campaign coffers of both parties for so many years? Or, because they made a bad decision years ago, but hope by going forward with it that they can bury it? Or maybe that they are all bending over backwards to please Saudi Arabia even if it kills us (but makes them richer)? All of those factors certainly have contributed to the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" policy toward the Moslem Kosovo Albanians, but there is yet something else that we are not noticing.
"It's about raw power, Baby"! President Bush, Mrs. Clinton and most of the Democrats and Republicans are "globalists" (which is why even Bush is for open borders between the US & Mexico). Modern politicians on both sides of the aisle in Congress see "protecting and making the US a better place for its citizens to live" as just too small of a goal and playing field for their unbridled ambition. In short, real Americans are just not that important to most of those we've been electing. American politician also know that there is only so far that they can go in a short period of time with American citizens on American soil without starting a revolution, so all they have to do is keep us distracted while the changes happen here incrementally and happen rapidly elsewhere where we aren't looking. There is nothing to stop them from using some little conflict in the Balkans that most Americans don't understand let alone care about as their personal petri dish for experimenting with the New World Order.
This is not to say that globalists like Ms. Clinton are just blind arrogant children with no end-game in sight. There is a strategy to their actions in Kosovo.
If they can weaken the concept of national sovereignty by tearing Kosovo away from Serbia and unilaterally recognize "Kosovo Independence", they can do the same anywhere in the world -- create a Palestinian State, with or without Israel's consent and then unilaterally recognize it; sponsor & recognize other new mini-states in other long-established countries that they perceive as a threat to their ambitions; or longterm, even create an Aztlan with or without the consent of citizens of the Southwest US. And then package it all in the name of "a humanitarian peace" so that Americans will buy it.
But on what grounds?
In the US, rapidly expanding ethnic immigrant populations are voting blocks who are essential to electing politicians like Ms. Clinton, so why wouldn't a globalist like Ms Clinton want to indiscriminately let as many immigrants in as possible who could eventually vote for her? Of course she would -- as would most American politicians, if for no other reason than to just get elected when competing in races against other globalists. And who pays for it all? We do -- in indefensible borders while a war on terror is going on, as well as with our taxes. Electing people who want to play God is very expensive.
In the world beyond our shores, politically exploitable demographic shifts and changes are happening at an even faster rate, especially in the Balkans.
In Europe, while ethnic Europeans have been dying off, Kosovo Albanians have maintained the highest birthrate in Europe. Soft borders, explosive population growth, tribal exclusivity and perpetual financial aid to them, has allowed the Albanian population to behave like a veritable invasive species in the Balkans, challenging virtually every internationally recognized border that they manage to cross and eventually claim for "Greater Ethnic Albania". And Ms. Clinton wants to use the US to "legitimize" these conquests, thinking that it will win the conquering terrorists' loyalty. Yeah, right, good luck with that --Osama bin Laden got there first.
The globalist attitude toward "barbarians at the gate" is "Open the gates!", because this invasive population growth is the wave of the future. Who cares if these exponentially growing ethnicities kill off the old cultures and traditional religion of Europe to make way for the new? Who cares if young hoards steal what they need from the less numerous old? It's just social Darwinism at work. (It's easy for someone like Hillary to take such an attitude, because when you believe that nothing is sacred--except your reflection in the mirror--then anything is possible for you .)
Kosovo is just the first of many potential future conflicts that offer a test case for globalists like Ms. Clinton, because the globalist answer to shifting demographics is shifting borders -- using US power to take from the land rich and give to the land poor. And if takes more wars to help it happen, then Hillary Rodham Clinton is in! "Bomb those resistant bastards! They are in MY way!"
So if your idea of a perfect US president is one who sees the job as being "Tyrant Queen of the World", then vote for Hillary. Her Balkan policy proves those qualifications, nicely. As for me, I haven't given up on winning the war on terror, let alone be willing to vote to put a true political terrorist like Hillary in the Oval Office!

The report in Le Figaro that a trio of today’s big powers — including Russia, the U.S., and the European Union — was at loggerheads in the Balkans, has a certain cold air of familiarity about it, right down to the annoying Serb nationalists at the center of it all.
The sudden chill between Russia and what we can now again call “the West” is the result of the collapse of talks between the Serbs and the Kosovars a couple of days ago. Their negotiations were supposed to be the “last chance” at working out a “settlement” — ostensibly of what relationship the Serbian province of Kosovo should have with Belgrade. In reality, the two sides were negotiating the terms of Serbian surrender demanded by the Kosovar terrorists they had once fought. The Serbs were willing to continue to come up with something, as the IHT reports today, but most think it would be an empty exercise: On December 11, the international community will impose a “solution” and grant Kosovo the independence its leaders demand. The Serbs will be scarred and Russia might not like it, but they both had their chance to do something about it eight years ago, and they missed it. Serbia was being run by a dangerous buffoon and the Russians were broke.
Now the Russians are rich as czars and everybody’s worried about what they might do — including, I guess, the Russians: Le Figaro’s reporter says the Russian foreign minister is “very alarmed” at the consequences of forcing Serbia to accept Kosovo’s independence. That Russian alarm was matched by American concern. Our negotiator, Frank Wisner, told Le Monde that “tensions are obvious.” Sorting out the Balkans should be a snap. The countries there are little and cute. But the “Balkan powder keg” is a local trademark, and for good cause..... National Review
