I’d pay a thousand dollars right now to see Serbian tanks roll back into Kosovo.
Best post of the day goes to Wendy.
Only 1,000 dollars?
I think that would be worth at least $2500.
That would a great Christmas present for the Kosovar Serbs.
Bill Clinton’s rancid legacy lives on, as Christianity is extinguished in the Balkans. After the treachery he instigated against the Christians of Kosovo, he should be a pariah instead of an idol of the Democrats.
When all that was going on, under Clinton, I was at a loss to understand why we were so determined to side with Izlam against the Orthodox Christians. Now I get it. Amazing how 9/11 clarified the mind and showed the true colors of so many people in our country. I sometimes think the only way the Balkans are ever going to be settled is if the rest of the world backs off and lets them all duke it out. Trouble with that is that the Muzlims have now seized the upper hand, thanks to our perfidious and ignorant meddling. Gates of Vienna, indeed.
Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't it Christian Serbs who sided with the allies against the Nazis in WWII. Anyone care to guess which side most of islam was on.
This is one of the main reasons I am absolutely against the further existence of NATO.
NATO was formed to fight the Cold War. The Cold War ended in 1989-90.
Bureaucratic creep, a search for a new mission, the love the failed EU project and political correctness that pushed NATO and the USA into the Balkans.
NATO now guarantees the “security” of 35+ countries. There will be many more such blunders in the future if the USA remains in NATO.
I could come up with the other 1500 if it really came to it.
NATO has outlived its purpose and has resorted to bizarre tactics aiding our enemies.
Time to put an end to it.
Yes. One of the things they did was delay Hitler’s invasion of Russia until well into the fall, forcing him to fight in winter, which lead to his eventual defeat there.
McCain, Kristol, Safire, and Podhoretz were also big boosters. This was a "good war" back when Osama bin Laden was still on our side:
Great article exposing the saudis most recent donation to the stability of the Western world.
Only a couple hundred million Pounds? Surely, they’re committing more to the effort in jihadi recruits...
The saudis recently purged 1000’s of foreign Imans from SA in an effort to employ the own citizens in those positions. One thing that wasn’t consider was where are those now unemployed “experts” going to go for employment?
They only know jihad.
I pray for the Serbian Orthodox Christians in Kosovo and Bosnia—as well as in what is left of Serbia and of Montenegro—every day.
I would dearly love to see the replacement of the current quisling government of Serbia by a real, patriotic Serbian government. That is prerequisite to the reintegration of Montenegro and of Republika Srpska into the Serbian homeland, and to the reconquest of Kosovo, ALL of which I would love to see!!!!
We Americans now also have a quisling Federal Administration, which like the Serbian government is a creature of Soros and Al-Waleed. We REALLY need to get rid of it, too!!!! And Americans should sympathize with and actively support Serbia, because we now have the same problem.
Then there are the Serbian patriotic, Orthodox youth movements, like Dveri Srpska and Our 1389. Ironically, the current quisling Serbian politicians came to power as part of a youth movement, backed by Soros. (The obama 2008 election was run as a Soros-backed youth movement, too.) This is all clearly NOT just about youth!!!! I would love to see the victory of the Serbian Orthodox renewal movements, and the end of the malignant, metastasizing Soros “color revolution” movement, in which Soros activists from Serbia even spread their cancer to other countries.
Finally, we need to get the filthy, blood-soaked hands of the quisling Serbian government, the EU, NATO, Soros, and Hillary clinton OFF of the Serbian Orthodox Church!!!! STOP all outside meddling in Church affairs, which are designed to weaken the Church and the Serbian nation, as well as world Orthodoxy!!!!
Holy Father Justin of Celije, pray for us all!!!!
1. Built on the Rock the Church doth stand,
Even when steeples are falling;
Crumbled have spires in every land,
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the soul distrest,
Longing for rest everlasting.
2. Surely in temples made with hands,
God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
High above earth His temple stands,
All earthly temples excelling.
Yet He whom heavens cannot contain
Chose to abide on earth with men,
Built in our bodies His temple.
3. We are God's house of living stones,
Builded for His habitation;
He through baptismal grace us owns
Heirs of His wondrous salvation.
Were we but two His name to tell,
Yet He would deign with us to dwell,
With all His grace and His favor.
4. Now we may gather with our King
E'en in the lowliest dwelling;
Praises to Him we there may bring,
His wondrous mercy forthtelling.
Jesus His grace to us accords;
Spirit and life are all His words;
His truth doth hallow the temple.
5. Still we our earthly temples rear
That we may herald His praises;
They are the homes where He draws near
And little children embraces.
Beautiful things in them are said;
God there with us His covenant made,
Making us heirs of His kingdom.
6. Here stands the font before our eyes
Telling how God did receive us;
The altar recalls Christ's sacrifice
And what His table doth give us;
Here sounds the Word that doth proclaim
Christ yesterday, today, the same,
Yea, and for aye our Redeemer.
7. Grant then, O God, where’er men roam,
That, when the church-bells are ringing,
Many in saving faith may come
Where Christ His message is bringing:
“I know Mine own, Mine own know Me;
Ye, not the world, My face shall see.
My peace I leave with you.” Amen.
