A decision to make the Serb province independent is near. Will Serbia and Russia obstruct it? THE SERBIAN parliament formally adopted a new national constitution on Wednesday, following its narrow approval by voters in a referendum last month. The document was a necessary replacement of the previous charter, which was adopted during the rule of nationalist warlord Slobodan Milosevic. But it may have won acceptance only because it included a preamble that would have warmed Mr. Milosevic's heart: a declaration that the province of Kosovo, which Serbia in effect lost seven years ago, is an "integral" and "inalienable" part of the country. In fact, the United Nations, which has governed Kosovo since NATO freed it from Mr. Milosevic's brutal ethnic cleansing campaign, is due to decide the province's future by year-end -- though a decision may be delayed until after a Serbian election scheduled for late January. Serb leaders know what a U.N. mediator will recommend and what all Western governments will support: independence for the territory, perhaps with transitional conditions........

Is this a news story or an editorial? Written by al-queda at any rate. Not surprised to see it in the compost.
working hard, you think? :) Deep pockets here, very deep Pockets.
An anti-Jihad Balkans ping!
Malic on Antiwar.com has a different take on it:
Condy provides official Government support to that private group and U.S. taxpayers foot the bill.
And Serbs are not the only ones crying "foul" here. Amnesty International has it's bone to pick here, too -- http://www.amnestyusa.org/news/document.do?id=ENGEUR700152006
oh please, amnesty int'l?..lol they are such a liberal machine and they are anti-Serb and if they come up with one report that is favorable to Serbia's position, don't grab it... they are a political machine of Soros.
Mr. Milosevic's brutal ethnic cleansing campaign..
So will the Democrats in Congress once again support the jihadis in that region, like Clinton did?
Europe trembles, Hoppie's Heroic Heroes on the march!
When even their own Soros-funded, Socialist, pro-Muslim machinery says that UN-run Kosovo is broken & corrupt, there is no doubt whatever that it is broken & corrupt.
Just caught Amnesty International in a "pants-down, moment of truth" with this report. I am sure that the report will get buried (along with whoever wrote it) soon enough. Read it while you can.
oh i see, the lie-maker keyboard had a glitch and the truth won out in the struggle of keyboards?..:)
Bush has plans for the Democrats......Gates wasn't selected for nothing............stand by!!!!
Serbia is split.....However, just like Holbrooke said; (yes Holbrooke, can you believe it?), quote:
Holbrooke said the following:
There's a military insurrection that is taking shape, backed by the members of the Albania Diaspora in Germany, Switzerland, and right here in New York City, where a lot of Albanians and Albanian-Americans are sending a lot of money and support to Kosovo. (Gosh - NYC? -SG)
Holbrooke: An independent Kosovo would "unravel Southeastern Europe."
JIM LEHRER: And they want an independent Kosovo ruled by Albanians, right?
RICHARD HOLBROOKE: Yes. And more. I met with several Albanian leaders in Kosovo who said their goal is an independent Kosovo, their goal is to recreate the Greater Albania that existed briefly during the 30's and 40's, which includes Albania, Kosovo, and part of Macedonia. That, I can tell you, Jim, would unravel Southeastern Europe and dramatically increase the chances of a general war. And that's why the situation is both not the same as Bosnia and why it's so dangerous
I really need to stress this point so people do not misunderstand it. The Kosovo Albanians have been very badly treated for over a decade by the Serb minority in Kosovo. Their rights have been denied and the Yugoslav federal constitution was changed to reduce their powers. This was entirely wrong, and it led to the inevitable reaction which we're now seeing. At the same time, the violent solution which is being advocated by the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army, which is really not an army but a lot of different groups that are gradually forming an infrastructure of resistance, this approach is highly dangerous to stability in the region.
doesn't it sound like he suffrs from A.D.D? If so, he needs serious treatment as many of the politicians suffer the same disorder.
He took his best shot with the FDR piece I wrote and left me somewhat disappointed. I was hoping he would analyze it and give me a run for my money and also help to "ferret" out the kinks....Nevertheless, relative to the comments made about South Presevo being the next target......
It's almost not even a challenge anymore to figure out what they are up to...............
ADD???? you tink so...........??
where do you see Presevo Valley next summer as that is my time frame in being there...:)
that is hard to predict their time table and what the CIA has in mind. I've got to think about that one...from here on in and depending on the future reports...to see what may take shape. I could see, a "situation" developing in North Mitrovica, causing another March 2004 riot situation causing deployment into North Mitrovica.....Internationals killed by "Serbs", or a group of Albanians killed by "Serbs"....(not really Serbs), something like that....while the international focus shifts to Mitrovica, and the International invasion of North Mitrovica for their "own good"....UCPMB or whoever they call themselves now, will focus on South Presevo. Look for political movements, instigated events in various villages, recruitment of young men for "DA Cause"....and Greater Albania, slap a few Serbian police stations to get them pissed off....assassinate a few local police...some mines here a booby....booby???? sorry, I mean Booby trap here and one there ever so often....to also piss them off, then; start screaming abuse, lie to the local Albanians to feel disinformation, demonstrations formed or else....be there!! kind of thing. Then, they would provoke the authorities or set up a violent act themselves and blame it on the Serbs if they don't take the bait.....
Now, the real question comes from....what will be our position. Are we going to be passive with the UCPMB like we were in 2000-2003, and spank them, give three hots and a cot, for a few days then release them, just so they can go to Western macedonia then back into Serbia...or from Kamanica across the boundary to Serbia and continue....or are we going to help Serbia close the boundary; security wise, and politically show we aren't going to support their political ramblings...........that is the question.
I really don't think the albs can get away with it like they did last time. there will be a response from the Serb side and it will force the outside interested parties hands to reveal who they truly support. that will make it black and white issue..who is on which side etc...
True, but there is "some" reason to believe that an incident may be instigated, blaming it on the Serbs. In order to achieve independence, more pressure must be placed on the Serbs, to make the appear to be the bad guys, to the internationals....
