BELGRADE – Serbs will never forgive the United States if it helps ensure Kosovo's Albanians win independence for the Serbian province, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica said on Monday.
In a bitter response to President George W. Bush's promise to Albanians that Kosovo would soon be independent, Kostunica said Serbia was 'justifiably disgusted' by U.S. policy, the official Serbian news agency Tanjug reported.
The row over Kosovo's future deepened as the province marked the eve of the 8th anniversary of the June 12 deployment of 60,000 NATO troops who entered the territory from Macedonia as Serb forces withdrew to the north.
It has turned into a high-stakes diplomatic standoff between Russia, which backs Serbia in opposition to independence, and the West, which believes it is the only viable solution to future stability in the southern Balkans.
'The U.S. has a right to support certain states and peoples in accordance with its interests, but not by making them a present of something which doesn't belong to it,' the Serb premier said.
'The U.S. bombing of Serbia was a big enough mistake for the last century and this one as well,' added Kostunica, who has suggested that Serbia would curtail diplomatic ties with any state that recognises independence.
'Supporting one-sided independence for Kosovo would be a fresh mistake, a further act of unjustified violence, which would not be forgotten by the Serbian people,' he said.

Another momento of a flawed Presidency - Bill’s - resurrected under his nearly inept successor.
As a person of Slovenian descent I have no love for the Serbs, but they are right on this one and we took the wrong side. Bush is in bed with the Mexicans on immigration and appears to be siding with the Saudis on this one. Giving them another Muslim state in Europe seems to be the goal.
Serbs should pray to Jesus that Bush does not get his way on this.

Tirana. US President George Bush lost his wristwatch while he was shaking hands with Albanian citizen yesterday on his visit to Albania, Spanish agency EFE informed according to local TV channels information. Televisions broadcast a video that shows that while Bush greeting Albanian citizens, his watch disappears. Although the White House denies information that US President has lost his watch.
Maybe he did, or maybe the Spanish are so used to have things stolen by Albanians in Spain that they expect to see theft when someone's surrounded by Albanians.
“Bush is in bed with the Mexicans on immigration and appears to be siding with the Saudis on this one. Giving them another Muslim state in Europe seems to be the goal.”
In fact, didn’t some people speculate that the reason why the US is supporting Kosovo independence is because they’re trying to curry support in Sunni countries to try to contain Iran?
BELGRADE Serbs will never forgive the United States if it helps ensure Kosovo’s Albanians win independence for the Serbian province, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica said on Monday.
Darn. And me being fresh out of sympathy.
The Sunnis don’t need our encouragement to hate the Shiites of Iran. Problem is that the cozy relation with the Saudis goes back generations. They are business partners and Saudi money is the foundation of the Bush bank account.
Bomb Christians for the Al Qaeda backed KLA drug runners and give them a Christian Country!
Jail Border Patrol for shooting a Mexican drug runner and
have open borders for Mexico!
This President is now on the side of terrorists.
He was already on the side of illegals.
[Albania has wholeheartedly supported the U.S. in the global war on terrorism by freezing terrorist assets, shutting down non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with possible links to terrorist financing, expelling extremists, and providing military and diplomatic support for the U.S.-led actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Albania has played a moderating role in the region and has fully supported UN mediation efforts in Kosovo. ]
The Bush-bashing fools hate to see us with allies in our WOT.
Geez, you really hate Serbs!
Let me know how you feel when the UN hands over Aztlan.
An alliance with Albania should not be contingent on giving the Jihadists a base of operations by giving them Kosovo nor should it require the coming massacre of the Christian Serbs who currently remain in Kosovo.
However, these things all come as a package.
Anything like this?
Nope! Don’t have time to hate, waste of time.
Nope dude. During visit to Albania, security detail was provided by USMC expeditionary corps and Albanian "allies" were not allowed to carry arms during W's visit.Secret Service was taking all preacautions.
Anwar el Sadat was murdered by Gamma Al Islamya member in Presidential guard. And Gamma Al Islamya operates freely in Albania. SS was taking no chance.
Bush appears to like Clinton and want to be buddies with the guy. He has been a huge disappointment and I wonder about his mental state.
” I landed in Kosovo on a flight from Istanbul...
I went to other parts of Kosovo where Christians are forced to live in military-like compound ghettos, with the terror and fear of death if they ever set foot outside of their enclaves without protection. I saw a rogue and wild west region with very little self built infrastructure, and vast amounts of foreign money flowing in from Saudi Arabia and other nations hell bent on exporting their extremist ideals...A Sergent Major told me of villages in Bosnia where the women wear full Afghanistan style burkahs, and when a vehicle approaches the village all the women go run and hide”
“...the FBI arrested six Muslims who were planning a commando-style attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey, to kill as many soldiers as possible, authorities said.
Four of the six men are Albanians...lets not forget that the Albanians of Kosovo received material assistance from Osama bin Laden during the liberation leg of the movement, which we were simultaneously helping them with...
John R. Schindlers book Unholy Terror: Bosnia, Al-Qaida, and the Rise of Global Jihad :
how the Bosnian conflict has been misrepresented by the mainstream media, covering up the large role played by radical Islam and al-Qaida;
how Osama bin Laden used Bosnia as a base for terrorist operations worldwideincluding attacks on the United States from the Millennium Plot to 9/11;
how veterans of the Bosnian jihad have murdered thousands of Americans and conducted terrorist attacks around the world;
how the Clinton administration, in collaboration with Iran, secretly supplied Bosnias mujahidin, including al-Qaida, with millions of dollars of weapons and supplies;
how Americas Bosnian allies have been in covert alliances with radical anti-American regimes in several countries;
why Bosnia and its secret jihad matter to America and our War on Terrorism today.
It’s not just Serbs-—all Orthodox Christians are embittered by this shameful travesty and betrayal of loyal allies and fellow Christians.
We are all praying for a miracle..and writing and calling.
Interesting that post your idiocies here when you no NOTHING about the history of this region.
Just a reminder for all of you out there reading this...
Quote from above:
"But of any group, in any state, the one that plausibly can lay most claim to the Bush margin of victory are the estimated 50,000-plus Serbian-Americans of Ohio."
...and remember this...???
...as I said....I feel betrayed...!!!
wish he would have stayed overseas.......
You fake it well, sure enough.
I know a man of Serbian descent. He had many stories of the abuses of the Serbians by Kosovars, of the unearthing of mass graves of Serbians who’d been murdered by the Muslim Kosovars.
Yes, the Serbs have been vicious in dealing with the Muslims of Kosovo, who the media are deceitfully trying to portray as being moderate. They are being as vicious as the fanatic Muslims have been. As vicious as we will need to be in due time. Sooner rather than later.
This goes beyond GWBush. It dates back to the 1990s.

Basically you have the saudis funding church demolition.
They are still fighting the crusades against the christians.
These examples of terror do not implicate the government of Albania.
And some people like the idea of churches being destroyed, particularly if they are Orthodox Christian Churches.
If you support the independce of Kosovo, then you also support the eradication of the surviving Christian Serb population and the destruction of the remaining Orthodox Christian Churches and monasteries located there.
The former will lead directly to the latter and no power on this Earth is going to attempt to stop it.
Except maybe the Serb Army, but the West will probably begin bombing civilian targets in Belgrade again if that happens.
Support of Kosovo indepdence translates directly to these examples of terror.
Mighty broard brush you got there.
You can’t dance in the rain and not get wet.
If you support the cause, you support the effect. The consequences are so firmly established that there can be no innocent claims of it being “unintended” afterwards.
