...Contemporary proponents of the Greater Albania employ a two-pronged strategy to gather supporters. "We are a social-welfare movement." Vetevendosje chief Kurti said. He seeks to draw support from the reservoir of energetic young people, frustrated by economic hopelessness, poverty and unemployment.
The other direction of Vetevendosje action is to play up allegations of discrimination of Albanians in Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro....

It’s just amazing to me that despite the repeated failures of all forms of socialism, in every country it has been tried, there are still political movements claiming to be inspired by it.
Is it that people can’t learn from history and experience, or won’t learn?
No, it is that youngsters, who know absolutely EVERYTHING, have 'discovered' it for the 'first' time and just KNOW it will work out with them in charge.
What is it about Greater Albania that you cannot understand? It goes from Vienna to Buffalo, NY, on the East-West Axis, and from Moscow to Miami on the North-South Axis.
To dispute this is racist.
The Albanians are such vermin; the Somalis of the Balkans.
Your question has implicit in it the assumptions that those leading those political movements are of good will and wish to benefit their society and that those following them have learned history, so as to be aware of socialism’s failure.
Socialism tends to work very well for the socialists who start out powerless and end up running a country because their countrymen are historically illiterate.
Averaging 10 or 12 kids per family is breeding for war, and hopelessness and poverty come with the territory.

M. A. Zuberi is leading journalist of Pakistan and is chief editor of the Business Recorder.
This used to be the logo of the the Albanian American Civic League's webpage. The AACL was founded by Joe DioGuardi, who recently ran for the US Senate from NY -- and (Thank God!) lost.
DioGuardi is the individual most responsible for getting the US politically and militarily involved in the Balkans, and he didn't care what side of the aisle he had to bribe to accomplish it. He got the Albanian Mafia to fund the campaigns of every sympathetic Congressman and Senator, from Lantos to Biden to McCain.
Although Greece is briefly mentioned as containing supposed "Albanian land", the AACL has also targeted Greece as a place that "discriminates against Albanians". It's all such a propaganda snow job that it is beyond belief that people still buy it.
Just in case you haven't seen it, there is an excellent 30 min documentary on youtube called Kosovo, Can you Imagine? It tells the tale of just what has happened in Kosovo since the 1999 NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia. This version has Serbian subtitles which you can just ignore, but it's well worth watching.
This same young Canadian film maker has another documentary coming out on the subject of the break up of Yugoslavia. The new film is called The Weight of Chains. It opens in Australia this month to sold out crowds and it opens on January 7th in the US.
January 7th, how fitting!
My understanding is that the people in Albania itself want no part of this, and any attempt to try to create a Greater Albania would lead to an Albanian Civil War, that would make the other wars in the Balkans look like a walk in the park.
The Washington minders in Pristina don’t share that sentiment.
Or the Somalis are the Albanians of east Africa.
Albanians from Albania are pawns in this game, not deciders. It's irrelevant what they want, just as it is irrelevant what all the other Balkan peoples want. The Balkans are a nothing more than a geographical chess board to both the East and the West, and those are the people who make the decisions. Western leaders made and continue to make deals with the Albanian Mafia who'll quietly take care of any "problems" that surface among Albanians, and those Western leaders will propagandize us to shut us up when necessary, too.
Personally, I think that "an independent Kosovo" is a giant money-laundering scheme for US & EU bureaucrats and politicians, and for the Albanian Mafia trafficking in drugs and the sex trade. It has never had anything to do with "civil rights" or even military strategy, although some of the WikiLeaks have suggested that the EU thinks Kosovo's Camp Bondsteel is being used as a kind of European GITMO .
Push this cancer into the sea and let God sort them out.
“Or the Somalis are the Albanians of east Africa.”
That’s what I tell our local Somalis. It’s the only insult I can come up with that fully captures their natural depravity!
I note that DioGuardi is an Italo-Albanian Catholic.
More like a halfway house for the Albanian mafioso who get arrested in other parts of Europe. They are "transferred" to Camp Bondsteel where they are promptly released.
