Possible Serb responses to the estabishment of the “Kosova” Imperial protectorate

The recent Serb riots in Mitrovica have had a predictable result: Imperial stormtroopers have taken over from the EU police forces. Mitrovica is now under de-facto martial law and the martial forces imposing their law are not Albanian, but NATO, of course. So much for “independence”. The real capital of “Kosova” has never been Pristina, but Camp Bondsteel and there is no such thing as “Kosova”: all there is is

American-style history lesson about Kosovo

Kosovo: The Brave Tribes Are Doomed By Gary Brecher for the eXile FRESNO, CALIFORNIA — Hey, you want to hear the New World whining at Old Europe? Here it is, from a press conference Condi Rice gave about Kosovo: “I mean after all, we’re talking about something from 1389. 1389! It’s time to move forward. And Serbia needs to move forward. Kosovo needs to move forward. Well, I think we

Government Falls in Belgrade

by Srdja Trifkovic for Chronicles Magazine Far from indicating Serbia’s readiness to cower into the vivisection kennel, Tadic’s victory on February 3 was the last chance for the U.S. and the EU to stop the Kosovo trainwreck. Both Washington and Brussels decided to play va banque instead. Serbia’s resulting anger against the West will translate into the well-deserved demise for the DS and other “pro-Western democrats” at the parliamentary election

The Real Story Behind Kosovo’s Independence

Lessons in the Bi-Partisanship of Empire By JEREMY SCAHILL News Flash: The Bush administration acknowledges there is a such thing as international law. But, predictably, it is not being invoked to address the US prison camps at Guantanamo, the wide use of torture, the invasion and occupation of sovereign countries, the extraordinary rendition program. No, it is being thrown out forcefully as a condemnation of the Serbian government in the

Kosovo: A New Day of Infamy for a New Century

by Srdja Trifkovic The grotesque charade in Pristina on Sunday, February 17, crowned a decade and a half of U.S. policy in the former Yugoslavia that has been mendacious and iniquitous in equal measure. By encouraging its Albanian clients go ahead with the unilateral proclamation of independence written at the Department of State, the U.S. administration has made a massive leap into the unknown. That leap is potentially on par

Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica addresses the Serbian nation about Kosovo

Translation: “Dear citizens of Serbia, Today, on February 17, a phoney state of Kosovo has been declared in the part of Serbia’s territory that is under military control of NATO. This unprecedented lawlessness came as a result of destructive, cruel and immoral policy of force implemented by the US. This act informs the whole world that America puts force over the UN Charter and is ready to self-willingly, unscrupulously and

Kosovo Serbs see EU mission as ‘occupation

EU Business reports: The EU police and justice mission aimed at helping Kosovo’s transition to independence is a form of “occupation,” Kosovo Serb leader Milan Ivanovic said Saturday. “In essence, the mission has the characteristics of an occupation and it will be accepted neither by Serbia nor by the Serbs in Kosovo,” Ivanovic told AFP hours after Brussels approved the mission’s deployment. European Union nations have agreed to send a

Clinton’s ticking time bomb in the Balkans

With all the talk about the Neocon’s fabulously evil and incompetent foreign policy one might forget that it did not all begin with Dubya and his administration. The first elective war which was fought in blatant and clear violation of international law, the UN charter and even basic decency was the US-lead NATO aggression on Yugoslavia. It all really began with the joint US-Croatian attack on the UN protection areas

Serbia offers Kosovo internal autonomy

Iran’s PRESS TV reports that Serbia is going to offer a solution to the Kosovo issue which will be acceptable to all sides in the upcoming direct negotiations in New York. “Our proposal offers internal independence to Kosovo, or an opportunity for the ethnic Albanians to manage their own lives,” Serbian negotiation team member Goran Bogdanovic was quoted as saying. He pointed out that Serbia would not interfere in the

The War Empire Forgot

by Nebojsa Malic The September morning six years ago that saw three hijacked jetliners slam into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon has often been called “the day everything changed.” What really changed was Americans’ skepticism of their own government – a fact that has been abused ever since. The man from Crawford who campaigned on the promise of a “more humble foreign policy” and against Clintonian “nation-building” quickly
