The United States will pledge $400 million in aid to Kosovo next week at a donors conference expected to raise more than $1 billion for the newly independent state, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday.....

The Bush administration requested the bulk of its pledge from the U.S. Congress more than a year ago, well before Kosovo declared independence, out of a certainty that the region would need financial help whenever it declared independence.

Thousands of foreclosures here in the US, a falling dollar, gas at over $4 a gallon, a stock market in trouble, but we still have $400m to give away overseas! Really?

We’re funding Islamic Terrorists and fighting a WOT at the same time?

I don’t think any of us have a clue what is really going on in our government and what their goals are.

This just makes the Iraq endeavor look ridiculous.

“The whole Kosovo thing makes me shake my head. What the hell?”

Maybe John McCain will finally get the ground troops in there as he insisted we send in 1998.

What the hell, indeed.

Both political parties have reached the point of terminal stupidity.

They have a strangle hold on our democracy and do as they please.
If we don’t somehow eliminate the two party system we won’t have a democracy or a nation.

Great. Build another terrorist Islamic state, which will attack us at some future date with arms bought with our own money. Smart thinking Bush.

A single party system is a democracy? News to me. Don't worry. The 2 party system will be all but eliminated come November. Obama the Messiah will have full control.

Some of us do. It's reminds me of these giant corporations that donate money to both the Democrats and Republicans.

We have a 5 party system (there are more but this 5 do have a serious chance to get enought votes to gain some power) it would be wonderful if it would be just that simple unfortunately most politicans regardless which country they come from have one thing in common they lie to the people and it looks like just the second the voting is over every one seems to forget what they promised and why they got their votes.

"I don’t think our government has any clue what it is doing or what its goals are.

Oh, I do. But those making these decisions AREN"T doing it for you or me, but for their globalist financial backers. I think that most politicians today, both Euro and American, are in it for themselves and their uber-rich globalist pals, not for us. They see America and us voters as simply means to an end. We are here to finance their dreams, not our own anymore.

Billions have already been poured into Kosovo, and the money has simply disappeared with no financial progress for those living there, and an unemployment rate of of 50%. Kosovo has simply become the world's biggest money laundering operation, with it big brother, Albania, not far behind. (The US Ambassador to Albanian is under investigation.)
