  • Back to the Brink In the Balkans

    At a most inopportune time, the Balkans are back. On Dec. 10, the U.S.-E.U.-Russian negotiating team tasked with getting the Serbs and Albanians to agree on Kosovo's future status will report to the United Nations that it has failed. A few weeks later Kosovo's government will proclaim that Kosovo is an independent nation -- a long overdue event. The United States and most of the European Union (led by Britain, France and Germany) will recognize Kosovo quickly. Russia and its allies will not. Kosovo's eight-year run as the biggest-ever U.N. project will end with great tension and a threat of...

    With no deal in sight, there are fears Kosovo may declare independence unilaterally, triggering a chain reaction of potentially violent secessions across the Balkans — and beyond. "There is a risk that the situation will destabilize" and unleash independence declarations in the ethnic Serb half of Bosnia and the ethnic Albanian-dominated north of Macedonia, said Alex Anderson, Kosovo project director for the International Crisis Group, a non-governmental group dedicated to preventing conflict.
  • The Clinton Administration’s Bosnian Failure (Good read, specialy fro begginers on issue)

    With Hillary Clinton surging in the polls and Democrats knifing Bush's foreign policy and praising Bill Clinton's, it's time for a reality check on a supposed triumph: Team Clinton oversimplified a complex situation in Bosnia and ended up aiding and abetting Muslim extremists. That's the conclusion of John Schindler, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and a former National Security Agency analyst. In his new book, "Unholy Terror: Bosnia, al-Qa'ida, and the Rise of Global Jihad," Schindler reappraises the 1992-1995 Bosnian war and America's decision to come to the defense of Muslims in their conflict with Serbs.

  • Kosovo: Police arrest ethnic Albanian suspected of killing 15 serbs

    Pristina, 16 Oct. (AKI) - Members of the international police in Kosovo arrested on Tuesday an ethnic Albanian suspected of killing 15 Serbs in Serbia’s breakaway ethnic Albanian majority province, local media reported. Local radio said police surrounded the village of Veliki Alas, south of province’s capital Pristina, with tens of armored vehicles early in the morning and arrested Melzum Bitici. Kosovo police spokesman Veton Elsani confirmed that an ethnic Albanian, suspected of war crimes, was arrested but gave no details. Bitici is suspected of gunning down 14 Serbs in the village of Staro Gracko on July 23, 1999, while...
  • Clinton Kosovo Policy Will Haunt Candidate Clinton (Good read about history of conflict)

    Whoever doesn’t take the current Clinton candidacy seriously is a fool. It’s quite probable that she’ll end up inheriting the Iraq War and all its collateral issues which I’m sure doesn’t sweeten the pot, but she’s determined to become President anyway. I admire her for that. I know I wouldn’t want to inherit someone else’s baggage. And certainly not that kind of baggage. Candidate Hillary Clinton sure has a lot to say about the Iraq War and how the current administration has conducted itself. Maybe I missed it, but she has not had nearly enough to say about another issue,...

    After my article exposing the farce of our Kosovo mission ran in American Legion Magazine last month, I heard from a soldier in Kosovo who was incredulous that someone was actually and finally talking about the region. I proceeded to publish two letters from him in this space, about his experiences and observations there, some of which confirm the free run that jihadists have in Kosovo, the fact that Albanians are being radicalized, and the notion that we should not have intervened in Kosovo as we did. Only there since November, the National Guard soldier stopped short of confirming the...

    Another American Jew “gets” Kosovo, albeit a bit late: US should support Serbia, not Kosovo Albanian radicals, expert , March 19, 2007 US needs to stand on the side of democracy and stop supporting radical and quasi criminal elements with separatist tendencies in Kosovo, says Ariel Cohen, Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow in Russian and Eurasian Studies and International Energy Security at the Sarah and Douglas Allison Center of the Davis Institute for International Studies at the Heritage Foundation. “…Implications of Kosovo’s independence can be dangerous if not catastrophic across the world,” says Cohen. Ariel Cohen has often been critical of...

Hiding Genocide in Kosovo: A Crime against God and Humanity by Iseult Henry Old habits die hard: A yellow cross fixed by German NATO to the door of a Serbian house to show that Christians live there -- but not for long. Finally, the truth is coming out about the Kosovo jihad and how it has been aided and abetted by NATO, the UN, and the EU. Thanks to Iseult Henry, maybe the shameful and ultimately suicidal support of the Kosovo jihadists by Western powers will finally be ended....

    And though he now stands accused of murdering Serb civilians nine years ago, as prime minister he aided U.N. efforts to protect the remaining Serbian minority in Kosovo. In a 37-count indictment, Haradinaj and his Kosovo Liberation Army unit are accused of a "widespread and systematic" campaign to intimidate, abduct, rape and murder Serb civilians and Albanians who refused to cooperate. His "Black Eagles" killed at least 40 people between March and September 1998 and expelled thousands more, the indictment says. One of Haradinaj's lieutenants and co-defendants, Idriz Balaj, is accused of some of the more grisly deeds, including slicing...

    Belgrade, 25 June (AKI) - Serbian president Boris Tadic has deeply divided the nation and triggered a storm of criticism by apologising to neighbouring Croatia for war crimes committed by his co-nationals during the bloody breakup of the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. On the margins of the Southeast Europe energetic summit in Zagreb on Sunday, Tadic told Croatian television in an interview: "I apologise to all citizens of Croatia and the Croatian people who were made unhappy by members of my people and assume responsibility for it," he said. Tadic earlier apologised to Bosnians for war crimes committed by...
  • Serbs 'disgusted' by Bush Kosovo pledge – premier

    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....
  • Kosovo to honor Bill Clinton with statue

    PODUJEVO, Serbia (Reuters) - Kosovo Albanians plan to honor their "savior" Bill Clinton by erecting a statue of the former United States president in the capital of Serbia's breakaway province. The three-meter (10-foot) tall monument is still under construction in a studio in Podujevo north of Pristina. "He is our savior. He saved us from extermination," sculptor Izeir Mustafa told Reuters. "I was thrilled by the work because I know what he did for us." Kosovo has been under U.N. administration since 1999 after 78 days of NATO bombing ousted Serb troops who had killed some 10,000 ethnic Albanians in...

    Former CNS News reporter (and current managing editor of The New Individualist) Sherrie Gossett reports on her blog that in a recent Rolling Stone interview, The New Yorker’s Seymour Hersh outdid himself: Q. But why isn’t there more of an uproar by the public at atrocities committed by American troops? Have people become inured to those stories over the years? A. I just think it’s because they are Iraqis. You have to give Bill Clinton his due: When he bombed Kosovo in 1999, he became the first president since World War II to bomb white people.So there you have, at...

    The three Kosovo-Albanian Duka brothers implicated in the plot to massacre American soldiers at Fort Dix were in the roofing business, and they lived in New Jersey, which is next-door to New York. New York is where the big dog in Albanian roofing lives. His name is Florin Krasniqi, and he was the subject of a 2005 documentary aired on PBS and titled “The Brooklyn Connection.” (Here’s the cast of colorful characters, and here are some clips on YouTube.) In addition to raising $30 million for the Kosovo jihad from the Albanian-American community, Krasniqi smuggled high-powered sniper rifles from the...

    Monday night 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, a fact that Fox News — which apparently thinks that “Yugoslavia” and “Albanians” are the same, and isn’t sure what those two things might have to do with “the Balkans” — reported thus: The Associated Press reported that those captured were nationals of the former Yugoslavia, but the law enforcement source told FOX News that not all of them are of Albanian ethnicity.

The six were scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Camden later Tuesday to face charges of conspiracy to kill U.S. servicemen, said Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey. Officials said four of the men were born in the former Yugoslavia, one in Jordan and...

    Belgrade, 9 May (AKI) - The arrest of four ethnic Albanians, a Jordanian and a Turk in the United States on Tuesday on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack on the United States army base in Fort Dix, New Jersey, confirms the existence of a "white Al-Qaeda", Balkan terrorism expert Darko Trifunovic told Adnkronos International (AKI) on Wednesday. Trifunovic said the arrests showed "white Al-Qaeda at work." He compared the Fort Dix plot to a February attack in Salt Lake City when a Bosnian Muslim youth, Sulejman Talovic went on a shopping mall shooting rampage. Six people including Talovic were...

    Well, here is the thanks we get. Eight years ago, America opened its arms to tens of thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo. The first planeload landed at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Military leaders worked day and night to turn the base into a child-friendly village. They coordinated medical and security checkups, mental health and trauma counseling and ethnic food preparations. Soldiers from Fort Bragg traveled up from North Carolina to assist in refugee operations at Fort Dix. Then-U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Mitchell M. Zais also assembled a team of about 80 soldiers from the U.S. Army Reserve Command...
