  • 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...

    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,...

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...

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...

  • 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.

    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.

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A U.S. diplomat in Washington said a solution to the future status of Serbia's mainly ethnic-Albanian Kosovo province could be decided by April. U.S. Undersecretary for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns told Voice of America that U.N. special envoy to Kosovo Martti Ahtisaari will begin a series of talks with Kosovo ethnic-Albanian leaders in Pristina and Serbian authorities in Belgrade soon after Serbia's parliamentary elections set for Jan. 21. Burns said he hoped the Kosovo solution could be found "one to two months" after the Serbian elections. He said Washington does not support any option nor...

    In March 2007 it will be eight years since the Kosovo war and the US-led NATO intervention in gross violation of a host of international laws including the UN Charter. The Western part of the international community was determined to resolve the Kosovo status issue by the end of 2006. However, the UN Kosovo mediator, former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari, has delayed his proposal until after the Serbian parliamentary elections on January 21, 2007 in order to reinforce the democratic camp within Serbia. The Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija, Kosmet in Serbian but for brevity reduced to Kosovo in...

Police found 23 bullets among the broken glass and empty chargers in the street. The evidence, according to the police,...

    Amid signs that the Bush administration may be backing away from unequivocal support for independence for Kosovo, the head of the Albanian American Civic League is appealing to the American Jewish community to advocate on behalf of Kosovo, a region of the former Yugoslavia that is predominantly inhabited by ethnic Albanians. “When Serbian dictator Slobodan Milosevic was massacring Albanians in Kosovo in 1998-99, the American Jewish community took the lead in pressing President [Bill] Clinton to bomb Serbia, because they instinctively understood the nature of genocide and were determined to keep it from being repeated,” said Joseph DioGuardi, a onetime...

    15 Serbs face questions about past Accused of lying on immigration forms, they are asked about the '90s war. By LANE DEGREGORY Published December 13, 2006 ST. PETERSBURG - The immigration officers came before 5 a.m. Monday, pounding on the doors of 15 St. Petersburg homes. Slavko Krsmanovic, 17, woke to flashlights on his porch, eight agents pointing guns at his house. They wanted his dad. He told them his dad was driving his mom to work. So the agents waited until Strahinja Krsmanovic came home. "As soon as he got out of the car, they handcuffed him behind his...

    It's not so pristine in Pristina. That's still our problem. REMEMBER KOSOVO? The little statelet of 2 million, still technically an "integral part" of Serbia, was the inspiration for an unprecedented NATO campaign, the first of its kind: bombing, in those less sensitive times, Christian troops on Easter. The prevention of genocide and the resulting stability of the whole Balkan region were secured, peacekeepers took up their positions in and around the capital, Pristina, and no one lived happily ever after. Serbia threw out its mad leadership--that has to count for something--but the old wounds burn even for democratic Prime...
  • U.S.: DISMAY AT ARREST OF ETHNIC SERBS

    New York, 18 Dec. (AKI) - Serbs living in the United States are reported to be deeply disturbed and worried by recent arrests of fellow Serbs in connection with the 1990s Balkan wars, community leaders have said. In a six-state swoop, American agents arrested 13 Serb immigrants last week and are looking for another three who are still at large. One of those arrested, Nedjo Ikonic, is being investigated for allegedly having taken part in the massacre of up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica when it was overrun by Serb forces in...

    Associated Press Balkan expert Tim Judah stated: "There is a real potential for renewed violence in Kosovo. If there is a delay or if the resolution is unclear, (Kosovo) Albanian hard-liners will start to lose patience." Since the United Nations and NATO began the international administration of Kosovo in 1999, similar Muslim Albanian violence has resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of non-Albanians, the destruction and desecration of hundreds of Serbian Orthodox churches and the deaths of thousands of non-Albanians. AntiWar.com columnist Christopher Deliso also reported on the rise of jihad terrorism in the Serbian province and the...
