Balkan former guerrillas join Syria rebels
AFP - Some fought as guerrillas during the bloody Balkans wars of the 1990s, battling powerful tanks and artillery.
Others grew up under the influence of radical Islam that has gained ground in poverty-hit areas in the Balkan countries and regions populated by Muslims.
Today, both experienced fighters and their younger followers are leaving the Balkans to join Syrian rebels on the front line.
Many return home in body bags with their families often unaware they had even joined the fight.

Things really shaping up as Kosovo II. Obozo sees it that way. Russia and China probably feel the same. I don't think Russia and China want to lose this time around. Russia saw Kosovo incident as a national humiliation back then. This set the stage for comeback of KGB cabals, and eventual rise of Putin. Chinese embassy got bombed by U.S. warplane because they were helping Serbians track down F-117 steath fighters. So both countries have old score to settle.

We (and other countries) refused to get involved in the beginning when the rebels were really the freedom fighters. Since we didn’t help, the MB, alqaeda, and others offerred sorely needed men & arms.
If you’re desperate & can’t get help from the good guys, you’ll take help from anyone who says they’re on your side.

The anti-Serb “Bosnian” and Albanian “fighters” were savage scum in the 1990s, and they’re savage scum now!!!!
Kosovo is Serbia! Free Republika Srpska! “Montenegrins” are Serbs!
Assad is the ONLY ONE in Syria who protects Christians! Victory to Assad!
