    I'll bet that was made AFTER his detailed revelations. The Serbs simply read from his books and quotes and noted he was not the typical anti-Serb on a mission, but some who spoke of what was really going on in contrast to the lockstep packaged and approved statements, and invited him to talk and then paid him for his travel and time expenses, and their gratitude too.

    Do you have a date when he received the money? Plenty of others involved in the Balkan war/speeches received money from Albanian, Croat, etc. lobbyists.

    Should point out that the Muslim military command ordered their (Muslim) soldiers off their strong defensive positions all around Srebrenica and to gather in the north of the city, from which they all departed on foot towards Muslim-held territory before the Dutch withdrew.

    The Muslim army was vastly larger than the UN Dutch and there had been plans and talk to swap Srebrenica for Serb-held territory which went on and off for years (at least as early as 1993).

    The evacuation was prepared for and the Muslim soldiers withdrawn from defensive positions before there was any fighting for the town.

    Wonder if Serbs can sue for the attacks and killings the Muslims kept committing over the years from this UN safe area?

    The father did tell the 911 dispatcher that his son had no medical problems (so more evidence he was not disabled or ill), but he and the stepmother were silent when asked what the boy had been doing before he stopped breathing:

    911 call released in case of NC teen tied to tree

    MACCLESFIELD, N.C. - Two callers didn't answer a 911 dispatcher's repeated questions about what a 13-year-old boy was doing before he stopped breathing on a tape released Tuesday by investigators, who have said the teen was tied to a tree for two nights.

    "Our little boy stopped breathing," a woman tells the dispatcher. Later she pleads, "Please hurry. Please hurry."

    Brice Brian McMillan, 41, and his wife Sandra Elizabeth McMillan, 36, of Macclesfield are accused of killing their son, Tyler, by tying him to a tree for two nights for punishment. The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office wouldn't immediately confirm whether they believe the callers are the McMillans but said the recording was related to the case.

    The dispatcher repeatedly asked the woman and later a man what the child was doing before he stopped breathing, but neither respond. The man said the boy did not have any medical problems. Toward the end of the call, neither responded to repeated questions from the dispatcher as they apparently performed CPR on the teen, who later died at a hospital.

    The county sheriff's office has said Brice McMillan told a deputy the teen was tied to a tree and forced to sleep outside last Tuesday because he was being disobedient. The teen was released Wednesday morning, but again tied up that night for bad behavior.

    The boy's stepmother found him the following afternoon near the home in this community about 60 miles east of Raleigh, authorities said.

    The McMillans were both charged Monday with murder and felony child abuse.

    But the B92 version of this only says that the Vatican won't recognize it now which means they won't necessarily hold firm to that position. The Vatican has committed too many sins/evil deeds against Serbs to be trusted.

    No. The obituary and statements from his family lists reading as one of his favorite activities, along with fishing with his cousins and other things.

    The following is what someone commenting to the news said, and though you can't automatically believe any poster, what he says seems to fit in with the information given so far. (And if what he says is true it shows why the boy may have been unhappy - he likely missed living with his grandparents who he'd lived with for years, and he had uncles and cousins who he spent a lot of time with, apparently. It also shows there was a home/homes available for them to send him to if they were truly at their wits end - back his grandparents or at one of his uncles' homes. Perhaps they tied him up because he kept wanting/attempted to run back to Florida.)

    By "rruss":

    ...Brice's first wife died to cancer 4 yrs ago and he was so distraught that his parents raised these two until last yr…Tyler was a student of mine in our local homeschool co-op and was definitely a grade or two ahead of his age. After talking to his uncles the other night, I found out Tyler was an avid reader and read many books ahead of his "grade" level. They were registered with the state or they would not have been allowed to participate in our local homeschool support group.

    It appears the older boy was kept isolated and not allowed into family activities/fun. A neighbor saw everyone but the boy out exercising and the mother said about him that "he doesn't get out much.":

    Patricia Shrock, 57, lives a half-mile up the road from the residence and owns Pat's Style Corner in Pinetops. She said the first time she met the couple face-to-face was two months ago, when she was working in her front yard flower garden.

    Shrock said she saw the 7- and 9-year-old children roller-blading with Sandra McMillan that evening, and that Brice McMillan followed behind them, jogging. She said the first conversation with Sandra McMillan lasted around 15-20 minutes.

    "She said, 'I'm so glad to meet you,'" Shrock said, adding that she assured her the children were not being truant from school, that they were home-schooled.

    Shrock also said that McMillan mentioned their other child, but only that "he doesn't get out much."


    Also they had a dog which was allowed to run loose and bother the neighbors which shows they were much easier going towards the dog than the oldest boy:

    Carolyn Pollard, 51, lives across the road from the McMillan residence, and she described the family as "kind of secluded, to themselves." The first time she met them face-to-face was only a month ago, she said, when the couple's golden labrador was loose and "agitating" her dog.

    A week after that incident, Pollard said the McMillans' dog was loose again, but that this time the dog knocked her over while she was carrying a bag of groceries into her house. She said she left the McMillans a "nice" note in their mailbox explaining what had happened to her. After that, she said "(the couple) didn't speak to me anymore, didn't wave to me."


    Roller-blading, jogging, a big hyper dog they let run loose, shunning behavior to a neighbor who nicely mentioned being knocked down by their dog...they certain sound like a family terrorized by the 13-year-old. NOT!

    Did you notice the one side of the tree in the picture for your post #57? Doesn't it look like pieces of the bark has broken/been rubbed off going up from the ground to at least 4 feet? Then also there's all those bales of hay. I was thinking they may have stacked the bales of hay up around him to obscure any view of him from neighbors or others in the vicinity. Perhaps even they gagged him so no one could hear him and they would be bothered by his crying, shouting, pleas for water, etc. "eastforker" doubts they didn't give him water, but if they were giving him water they would probably have noticed his deteriorating condition before it came to the point of no return.

    They would have knew that any neighbor spotting a boy tied to the tree like that - whether in the middle of the night or in the heat of the day - would do something about it - they would go closer to investigate, go speak to his parents or call the police. For sure it wasn't a case of kids playing cowboys and Indians.

    I think the stepmother did not like him at all and turned the father against him.

    A neighbor says the man claimed to be in construction and he witnessed him building a horse fence. So the father was a physically strong man - much stronger than a 13-year-old boy:

    James Pollard said Brice McMillan told him he was a construction worker. McMillan had worked hard building a horse fence, he said.

    Janice Pollard recalled Brice McMillan asking her about the neighborhood during a visit before they moved in.

    "I told him it was the most peaceful place he'd ever find", she said.

    I don’t see any cuts on their faces nor hear about any cuts at all on them or the kids, and if he was wielding a knife then they make reports to the police to at least get it on record. Interviews with his siblings and an investigation will reveal what is really went on. But I’ll bet my intuition will spell out better than yours.

    "I work in 95 degree heat all day long, in the sun wearing long sleave FRC’s."

    You move around and get circulation. This boy was in fixed position from Wednesday evening/night until around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. He also had bindings all over his body such that it left bruises. I doubt your shirt gives you bruises.

    You are probably long used to working in the heat if you've done it for years and years.

    The theft conviction was in '91 but most often a person is only caught a small percentage of the time and the character of a person is usually formed and doesn't change once they are grown - and she would have been 19 or 20.

    Though we will have to wait and see for the autopsy report. I wonder if they'll give the child's weight but I'll be it is much less - probably almost half - than that 170-pounder you bring up.

    "little Lionell Tate"

    Lionell Tate was a 170 pounder - not little. Meanwhile a neighbor described this boy as little - and that is probably in observance of his size.

    These parents look good-sized, not cowed parents at their wit's end - and they look tough.

    The woman is a convicted thief meaning she's very sneaky and a law violator.

    The man has had "several" driving offenses (they don't get into details of how serious they are, but he violated driving laws frequently.)

    It's said they only moved from Florida recently - perhaps to escape their bad reputation they were accumulating or suspicions of neighbors there.

    There is no report on any crime record on the kid - no mention of any injuries to the other children or parents. Even they said he was punished for disobedience and I read also of running or trying to run away. No mention of him making threats - though perhaps people like you will give the lawyers a good story to cook up and somehow justify this deadly treatment of the boy.

    Plus the woman's husband died at age 38 in 2002. She could have murdered him for his insurance for all we know - you can't put it past her being a sneaky thief, plus allowing the boy to be tightly bound (he's got bruises and marks from this all on his body) for over 3/4 of a day and with no water.

    I think you are the one barking up the wrong tree and an investigation will show the parents in more and more worse light.

    I'm thinking a blood clot could have killed him if not the dehydration alone. The kid was bound up with plastic and ropes plus police say there are marks on his body showing he was bound with other things as well. The plastic, ropes and other things on his body, as well as the tree limited his ability to sweat and impaired his circulation. Dehydration also thickens the blood.

    They warn people on long airplane flights in cramped positions to be aware of the deadly clots which often start in the legs and move up to a vital organ. They tell people to get up and move around every once in awhile to prevent this.

    Former Vice President Dan Quayle had these clots and they believe it was from his long airline flights.

    As the paramedics arrived around 4:30 p.m. Thursday and he'd been tied to the tree the evening/night before he was in a very fixed position for over 3/4 of a day. And that's assuming they did give him a break on Wednesday. They could be lying.

    I believe and investigation will show he was abused and it's said that he was punished for trying to run away - likely trying to escape the brutal parents.

  • British Man Surprised to Find a Dozen Kosovans -Living In His Attic

    06/13/2008 1:57:00 PM PDT · 1 of 20
    A stunned British man looked in his attic — and found a colony of Kosovans living in the roof.

    The 12 illegal immigrants were sitting on mattresses eating sandwiches.

    Walls had been knocked down between Lee Bradley’s home and two adjoining properties to create a living space for several families, with an electric light dangling from the roof. Bradley, 33, closed the hatch and dialed 911. Police raced to his rented house and scrambled the force helicopter — but by the time they arrived the loft dwellers had gone.

    Bradley, wife Caroline, and their four kids had just moved into the $970-a-month terraced home in West Bromwich, West Midlands.

    “I decided to have a look in the loft space and popped my head through the hatch,” Bradley said. “There was a light dangling from the roof and about a dozen people — men, women, and a baby who started to cry when she saw me. I was scared and shut the hatch straight away.”

    Police believe the fiddlers in the roof got access through an adjoining house that had been sublet.

    He was called as a witness but the judges did not let him testify. The trial was a farce. What he says here expresses well what happened at Naser Oric's trial:

    "First of all, the indictment against Naser was entirely ridiculous. He was charged for the things he wasn't guilty of, but not for any of the things he was guilty for."

    Seems to me that the Serbs can draw up indictments and try Naser Oric for his crimes and it not be double jeopardy - since that did not try Naser Oric for his own crimes but those of others. They basically tried him for some prisoner abuse done by other Muslims to the Serb prisoners in Srebrenica. So he received a mild sentence for failure to prevent this abuse, but nothing for the gruesome murder of the Serb judge which was, I believe, the first murder of the war, nor the subsequent murders Naser Oric was involved in, nor the scorched earth campaign he carried out on Serb villages.

    Nor did they allow this author or his uncle, witnesses to Naser Oric's bragging and some of the murder scenes, to testify, nor the western journalists such as John Pomfret of the Washington Post, nor Bill Schiller of the Toronto Star to testify about seeing Naser Oric's show and tell gory videos of his actual crimes at his home in early 1994.

    Don't you think that piece deserves its very own post? I think you should post it, or maybe I will.

    Probably the most shocking chapter of the book is the one with Naser Oric's personal admission of the first Serb he killed by his own hands, murder of the Srebrenica Judge Slobodan Ilic.

    "When we took that group captured in Zalazje from [Srebrenica] prison to take them back toward Zalazje, and when the slaying begun, Slobodan Ilic came into my hands. I climbed on his chest. He was bearded and hairy like an animal. He looked at me without saying a word. I took out the bayonet and jabbed it straight into one eye, and then turned it back and forth. He didn't let the single sound out. Then I hit him with the knife in the other eye... I couldn't believe he's not reacting. Frankly, that's when I got scared for the first time, so I cut his throat right after that", Oric described his 'feat' to Mustafic word-for-word during one evening Mustafic visited him.

    Oric's admission is followed by the testimony of Mustafic's uncle Ibrahim, who witnessed the same slaughter.

    "Naser came over and told me to get ready at once and go with the flag in front of Srebrenica prison. I dressed up and went over. When I came in front of the prison, they took out all those captured in Zalazje and ordered me to drive them towards Zalazje. When we reached the depot, they ordered me to stop and park the truck. I moved to a safe distance. But, when I saw their savagery and when the slaying begun, I felt all the blood drain from my head. When Zulfo (Tursunovic) ripped the knife down the chest of the nurse Rada, while asking her where is her radio-station, I couldn't watch any longer. I came back to Srebrenica on foot from the depot, and they drove the truck over afterwards, which I took from Srebrenica to go home to Potocare. The inside was all bloodied up", Mustafic cites the testimony of his uncle.

    The above mentioned medical nurse Rada Milanovic stayed in Srebrenica even after her family moved away. Srebrenica territorial defense headquarters assigned her to medical field group and to a local hospital.

    "The Whole Bridge was Floating in Serbian Blood"

    Mustafic also recounted other crimes against the Serbs from the town of Srebrenica which were more or less well known. He mentioned that, after the assault against the village Jezestica "Kemo from Pale [near Sarajevo] was carrying a severed head around with him, scaring people".

    The murder of the Stjepanovic family is also described. Stjepanovic family members were taken out of their apartment in the Srebrenica Battalion Street by Oric's butchers in July 1992, and taken to nearby Potocare.

    "Andjelija Stjepanovic (74) and her son Mihajlo (50) were among those brutally slain then. One Bosnian Muslim from Potocari described afterwards how the whole bridge where these poor people were slaughtered was literally swimming in blood. The killer of Stjepanovic family is Kemo Mehmedovic from Pale, Naser's loyal follower in atrocities. The executioner today lives in Austria, and there are tons of similar examples from Srebrenica. It is a shame that not one of these monsters in the human form have faced responsibility for their crimes, and their main organizer and the one who ordered them to kill, Naser Oric, is today parading in freedom," commented one of a handful of Bosnian Serb civilians who survived the hell of Srebrenica imprisonment.

    The previously little known details about the torture and murder of the severely ill Krsto Dimitrovski and his wife Velinka, from Srebrenica, were also revealed in Mustafic's book, charging Ejub Golic, former commander of the "Independent Hill Battalion" from the village Glogovo. Golic was freed of charges raised against him for this crime.

    Interesting to note that all these named Srebrenica Muslims who participated in the murders are all alive - living in Bosnia, Austria, etc. Plus the Muslims threatening the author for his revelations are no doubt Srebrenica Muslim men.

    Note that a lot of the described killings of Serbs happened in areas where bodies are found - many still "unidentified" after all these years but claimed as Muslims. I'd say many are Serb civilians and POWs.

    Draza and the Chetniks saved over 500 Allied airmen. The greatest behind enemy lines rescue. This despite the fact that the airmen were bombing Serb civilians and acting as Tito's airforce.

    Britain and the U.S. had made up their mind to back Tito despite successes the Chetniks were having. The BBC was deliberately giving credit for Chetniks attacks against the Germans to Tito.

    The Chetniks were purposely deprived of aid from the very beginning despite the fact that they were the ones who initiated the uprising against the Germans.

    As for Belgrade - the Germans were hanging Serb civilians daily in the city center at the beginning of the war and doing this also in other Serbian cities of Pancevo and Novi Sad.

    The local German Volksdeutsch were the ones who joined and cooperated with the Nazis.

    There is no evidence of the rape of Muslims, much less no orders.

    The Bosnian Serbian women were the first to send 800 documented claims of rape and rape camps to the UN Security Council in October 1992. Before that the Muslims and international community had no rape camp propaganda claims.

    After receiving the Serbian women testimony, the Muslims, suddenly and with no documentation nor evidence, claimed an astronomical number of raped women.

    The investigators never discovered any rape camps of Muslim women, never was there any medical examinations and collection of DNA evidence, there are no rape babies brought forward or paternity tests for these babies/children which only seem to exist in imagination/propaganda.

    There was no increase in the birthrate to support all the claims at all.

    You are going with pure propaganda hype which was the favorite of the media.

    Of course I knew you couldn't honor a simple request. You could argue against my comments without directly posting to me.

    You can't speak for Serbs. If they don't like my posts they can tell me themselves. Most don't feel like you do but only the Otpor/puppet-type Serbs working against their country or entirely unsympathetic to all the Serb refugees, concentration camp survivors, relatives of kidnapped Serbs, and so on.

    And of course you always ping and are friendly with the common Serb-haters on here like Hoplite, Tailgunner Joe, old-and-crappy, etc.

Don't like them/your personalities, ways, disposition - I mean nothing particularly inspiring or interesting about Croats to me - I just don't care about them.

    Do you do any more than cut and paste and regurgitate old anti-Serb propaganda.

    There are documented photos of destroyed Serbian Orthodox churches - which were looted, burned and/or blown up under watch of KFOR (NATO's ground forces). Those who blew up the churches showed high degree of knowledge of explosives and obviously had large quantities of it.

    This was all done during supposed "peace time" and not in the thick of the war.

    During war churches and mosques were sometimes collateral damage, sometimes targeted because soldiers used them or stored supplies in them, sometimes the enemy army was hiding behind them - the last from a man who served with the Muslim army in Bosnia. He said they were better at destroying things than building things. He was hired by SFOR (NATO forces in Bosnia) to help them locate buried land mines, but he couldn't orient himself because so much of the landscape had changed during wars. He did say that they, forces for the Bosnian Muslim army, did sometimes destroy churches or their own mosques "if the enemy was behind them".

    The Catholic churches in Serbia are entirely undamaged. Not even graffiti on them. There are Muslims within Serbia who've lived there during the wars and to this day. They and all the other ethnicities have freedom of movement and access to their homes, they weren't fired from their jobs in Serbia they way Serbs were mass fired by Croats and written out of the constitution, etc.

    "Booohoo. People lie to get papers"

    Interesting how you admit to Albanians lying about that when confronted by the evidence. They were caught lying on a massive scale which included making up stories.

    Yet your small brain doesn't consider the Albanians (and other Balkanites) ability to lie and make up stories for their propaganda.

    They were even caught inventing atrocity stories - claiming people were killed by the Serbs when those people were later found alive, well and unscathed.

    A Canadian reporter did a documentary following an 18-year-old Kosovo Albanian girl, Rajmonda, who in the beginning (late 1998) was in a hospital said to be recovering from the shock of her little 6-year-old sister killed by the Serbs.

    Later the reporter visited and the girl was a KLA soldier. The reporter, Nancy Durham, had always wanted to visit Rajmonda's home but Rajmonda kept telling her it was too dangerous.

    After the war, however, Nancy Durham went to Rajmonda's home and saw the claimed murdered sister alive, well, unscathed and completely oblivious to Rajmonda's tale.

    At first Rajmonda and her parents tried to deny it and claim it was another girl, but the reporter combed through the family albums as she sat on a couch in their home, and realized the family was lying.

    Finally Rajmonda did admit she lied and said it was the KLA doctors who had trained her to lie. Rajmonda was already a KLA soldier in the beginning when she posed lying on the bed pretending to be in shock.

    Here is one report on the story. The original documentary had aired in Canada and many other nations and I'm sure if you'd seen it you'd believe in Rajmonda's lying claims. I'm sure if the truth was discovered people who still be showing the documentary as evidence of Serb atrocities.


    HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA -- When Nancy Durham first discovered that she had been lied to, her reaction was "the most incredible sinking feeling."

    Ms. Durham, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) television reporter, had returned to Kosovo in June of this year, to do a follow-up piece on an 18-year-old girl who had joined the Kosovo Liberation Army after her young sister had been killed by Serbs. The girl's story had been part of a larger piece that aired on the CBC in January, to much critical praise. Yet as Durham stood in the doorway of the family's home in Skenderaj, the sister who was supposed to have been killed was standing there, alive and well.

    Rather than trying to excuse or brush off the lie, or have the CBC do a simple correction, Durham decided to do a full story - not only about the girl who told it, but what it said about how news is reported from a war zone.

    The result is a 16-minute report: "The Truth About Rajmonda: A KLA Soldier Lies for the Cause." It's being hailed by many media observers in Canada as a breakthrough piece that should serve as a model for other news organizations.

    Durham's involvement with Rajmonda Rreci began in September 1998 while she was filming a piece on an Albanian doctor. Rajmonda, a patient, told Durham on camera that she was joining the KLA to avenge the death of her six-year old sister. Durham (who works as a one-woman reporting "team") returned in December 1998 and tracked down Ms. Rreci. During that interview, Rreci said that her sister was fortunate to die for Kosovo, and that she would do the same.

    Then in June, almost as soon as NATO-led peacekeeping troops went into the region, Durham went back. It was during this trip she learned that Rreci had lied. When confronted, she told Durham that she had actually thought her sister was dead, but wasn't sure, and that doctors in the hospital had encouraged her to tell the story because other girls had lost sisters to the Serbs.

    "My first thoughts were 'This is a disaster,' " says Durham. "I had this passion for the people in the story. I felt really depressed. If this happens to me, I thought, and I go back again, and again, and again, how many other journalists has this happened to?" Durham returned to her home in Oxford, England, and thought about what she wanted to do. And although some media critics have said that the CBC pushed her to go back to do the report, Durham says this is untrue. She says she needed to go back, find Rajmonda Rreci again, and this time tell the true story.

    It turned out that most of what the teenager had said wasn't true. She had actually been a member of the KLA before she went to the hospital and had known all along that her sister was alive. But Rreci continued to stress that other Kosovar girls had lost their sisters, and why shouldn't she do it for them? Ultimately, Rreci did admit that what she said was just KLA propaganda…

    There were far less people killed during the Serb riots - only a Serb by accident in the U.S. Embassy and later during a the arrest of Serbian court workers by the UN (who is said to have frog marched them - mostly women - through the Albanian sector of Mitrovica) there was a Ukrainian police officer killed when they were using bullets and rubber bullets against the Serbs.

    There was no destruction of Albanian homes during the riots, no systematic destruction of mosques (which was done during the Albanian-led pogrom), and no stealing of homes and land which the Albanians did and still have some of them to this day.

    "and go back searching google news, maybe an Albanian stole a bicycle today. Post it and let us know how Albanians are criminals"

    You underestimate me 'ol sonny. For I got just for you here an Albanian "drug addict and dealer" who beat and robbed people and just died in a shoot out with the Australian police. As I said the Albanians are Vi-o-lent!

    SAMIR Ograzden must have had in him something good that should have been saved. Or at least not ground into the dirt.

    His girlfriend reckons she saw it.

    She dropped to her knees in the dark carpark where he bled to death last Tuesday and cried: "He was the most wonderful person. He'd do anything for anyone."

    True enough, I thought then, if by "anything" you mean belting them, robbing them, selling them drugs and trying to shoot them.

    That, after all, is why the drug addict and dealer was lying dead under the West Gate Freeway.

    He'd just shot and wounded a policeman who had come to back up his police colleagues after they pulled over Ograzden's car, in which he had several thousand dollars, drugs and a shotgun, and was in turn mortally wounded in a shoot-out.

    This "wonderful person" was just 25 when he died, but already had twice served jail and was wanted on more charges.

    Her own father helped there, and was close to his grandson, teaching him about his Albanian roots.

    "Bodies have been mutilated, with ears cut off, eyes gouged out or a cross, a Serbian symbol, carved into foreheads or chests."

    Where's photo documentation or genuine autopsy evidence of this? Why didn't any of the Albanian refugees/"survivors" have such scars or missing eyes?

    The KLA was known to torture/mutilate Serbs. Bokababe has on her page a picture of a KLA soldier with his son standing behind him and he is holding the severed head of a Serb and they have a bag with other heads.

    The Albanians have a reputation for controlling the drug trade and forced prostitution in Europe and Britain.

    Many, many Albanian have been involved in forcing women into prostitution in Britain. They seem to be in the news there every several weeks.

    Yes the NYT does propaganda and is a part of the mainstream press. Even Freepers call it the New York Slimes - or something like that.

    And yes, in the writing they don't even name the sources of the "Serbian soldiers" or alleged captured Serbian POW who makes these claims. It sounds purely fictional.

    Oh and note the claim of the Albanian liar: ‘’They just started shooting,’’ Mr. Zheniqi, a survivor, said in an interview. ‘’The dead bodies behind me pushed me over a cliff and into the stream. I was lucky because all the dead bodies fell on top of me.’’

    So where is the man's injuries if he was "pushed over a cliff and into a stream"? Where's a photo of this man?

    The international officials involved in the courts in Kosovo after the war said about the Albanians "No one hesitates to make things up."

    As for the rapes there has BEEN NO DNA NOR PATERNITY EVIDENCE. They don't even try. The rape babies only exist in the propaganda of dodgy hoaky stories.

    You are a sucker for propaganda.

    Here is one of the reports from Britain I told you about. It shows that Albanians are easy liars and scammers and claiming they were from Kosovo was an easy ticket into other countries/territories (and this would include Kosovo). So the destroyed document claim was most convenient for these types.

    Crackdown on Albanians who lied about fleeing Kosovo war

    Hundreds of successful asylum seekers could have their British citizenship revoked after investigators uncovered a massive immigration fraud.

    The Home Office is targeting Albanians who claimed to be victims of the war in Kosovo.

    According to the Daily Mail's sister paper, the Evening Standard, more than 80,000 refugees settled in Britain when Nato expelled Serbian forces from the province amid accusations of "ethnic cleansing" in 1999.

    Now the Home Office has evidence that many were not refugees fleeing the war but economic migrants from neighbouring Albania who adopted fake Kosovar identities to claim asylum.

    The clampdown, launched last month, is being aimed at those whose identities have been checked and proved false - genuine refugees from the Kosovo conflict are not affected.

    The precise number of those involved is not known, but dozens of letters are thought to have been sent out so far, with more to come as information is gathered.

    London's 25,000-strong Albanian community has been thrown into panic by the move, with internet forums flooded with posts from people anxious about their future in Britain.

    A genuine asylum seeker, who was given permission to remain, said: "It's been an open secret for years that thousands of Albanians were getting refugee status here by saying they were from Kosovo. It used to be the fasttrack route into Britain and lots of people took it.

    "There was a network that included traffickers and intermediaries. People were told to say they were from Kosovo - it never failed."

    Many of those facing expulsion have jobs, mortgages and British passports, with children who speak English and are at school here.

    The Home Office letters warn that those suspected of getting a passport by deception could face three months in jail or a £5,000 fine.

    This week, another letter was sent out by the Border and Immigration Agency, ordering those suspected of trickery to hand in their passports.

    The letter adds that the passport and certificate of naturalisation will be retained "until this matter is resolved".

    Another letter said their application for citizenship would be re-assessed, causing confusion because those affected are not sure if they are going to be deported.

    The clampdown began when British embassy officials in the Albanian capital, Tirana, examined applications from so-called Kosovars who had been given leave to remain in Britain and wanted to bring their families over as well.

    Embassy staff noted that the families all seemed to be from Albania, not Kosovo, and further checks revealed that a massive fraud had been operating for years.

    A Home Office spokesman said: "We believe British citizenship should be a gold standard. Whenever we receive evidence of fraud we will investigate.

    "Where we can prove fraud we will strip individuals of their citizenship and remove them from the country."

    "Their plans must have been to deny re-entry to anyone who not have documents when the war was done. Kinda convenient, right? You need documents to enter, but we just burned them."

    Actually it was a convenient excuse for illegals to claim their documents were destroyed in order to get a blank check to enter Kosovo or go off to another country as a "Kosovo refugee".

    There were reports of up to 400,000 Albanians from Albania and Macedonia flooded Kosovo after NATO's war. The border was left wide open for many months.

    Britain says 90% of the alleged Kosovo refugees they've deported, they sent to Albania after discover that is where they were from.

    British parents have even foster alleged Kosovo orphans only to find out they were from Albania and not orphans, and usually a different age than they claimed to be.

    There was one case of a family who brought 2 Albanian brothers into their household - they brothers claimed their mother had been killed by Serb and her body dumped in a well.

    Only about a year later did the family learn the truth - that the brothers were from Albania, not orphans and a few years older than they claimed. This was after a year of having things pilfered and money stolen from them, after one of them tried to seduce their 13-year-old daughter, after noticing the poor Kosovo refugee orphans liked to watch porn all day, etc.

    What you quote is a bunch of hysterical propaganda. The Albanians were a violent mountain people often used by the Turks and Austrians to kill of Serbs.

    Though the Turkish had to actually order the Albanians to stop their killings for in killing off Serbs and Christians in Macedonia, the tax base was being eroded.

    The Turks took a heavy amount of the agricultural production of the Christians they overlorded.

    There are historical photos of Turkish soldiers having to escort Serb religious peoples in Kosovo due to Albanian attacks.

    It was entirely unsafe to travel in Kosovo before Yugoslavia was created as the Albanians would rob and kill travelers.

    One of their methods was to create an obstruction in the road, including rolling bolders down the hillsides, so the travelers had to stop and the Albanians would come down from the hillsides/mountains to rob and kill them.

    Weapons were pouring into Croatia and Bosnia during the UN arms embargo. The Muslim and Croat armies became greatly equipped during the so-called embargo and siege. They ended the war with excessive weapons, some which were sold to the IRA and other terrorist groups.
