EU split over Kosovo widens
Good news on the Kosovo front: the split in the European Union's ranks that we reported on yesterday has grown. Now five EU members are opposed to the dismemberment of Serbia. They are Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. This should give heart to the Serbs that if war does come they will not have to face a united EU. Spain and Greece are NATO members, so perhaps even that body can be kept out of it officially.

At the same time the Russian position appears to have hardened, with a statement that any Kosovo declaration of independence that did not have the UN Security Council's approval would be illegal. That will not stop the declaration, but it might just be enough to further widen the division over the issue in Europe.

As far as the United Nations as a whole is concerned, Kosovo cannot be seated as a member without the approval of the General Assembly. Let us hope that Serbian diplomats are now working hard to try and persuade as many states as possible to vote against the territory's membership.

With luck, and with a Kosovo that is only recognised by the USA and its clients, the Russians may feel able to give the green light to Serbia so that she can put an end to this western aggression once and for all.

This may well be the end of the fascist €Urocrat union as we know it.

Well, I wouldn't mind that. Sod the useless Euros - Anglosphere forever!

And you say that with a name like yours, senor mera? A traitor to your emotional roots then - shame on you.

13 December 2007 at 08:12  

nick - not a bit of it. Firstly, just being provocative. Secondly and counter-intuitively, it's only within the Anglosphere that there's any opposition to the government-rules-all principle - everyone else is obsessed with sovereignty. Still, nice to come across someone who knows who Cipriano is.

I know who he was as well. A sad arsed tosser who decided that the Spanish Republic was not to his liking and wanted to open negotiations with Franco. So he led a rebellion and managed to defeat a government force, whereupon Franco told him to take his hook and demanded unconditional surrender.Proof, if proof were ever needed, that you fight one war at a time.

The enemy is at home. Let's deal with the middle class filth that voted to close down our factories and keep us on the dole. Everything else should be subordinate to that desire for revenge.

Bollocks. If anybody could have turned the war around he could. After fighting to the death for two and a half years he decided the game was up and turned on the Stalinist bastards who were pretending to fly the flag for their own glory and at other people's expense.

I agree the enemy is at home (by which I assume you mean Manchester, not Mexico). And we don't need Serbian fascists and desert death-cultists to help us there. They don't care about us, and we shouldn't care about them. Let's get on with fighting the rich.

I disagree with your thoughts on Kosovo. It's very clear that Serbia has no authority over the province. It should NEVER be put under Serbian control again.

In the 618 years since Kosovo was lost to the Serbs after the 1389 Battle of Kosovo, it has only been under Serbian control for 31 years - in three seperate periods during the 20th century. That's about 5% of it's history.

Serbia has no authority to claim that territory. The only extended period in which Serbia did have control (23 years after World War 1) was a direct result of the League of Nations meddling.

90% of the Kosovo population have no ties to Serbia - and haven't since 1389.

Despite efforts in 1912, 1915, 1918 and 1991 to deport, cleanse or exterminate the ethnic Albanian population, Serbia has never made inroads in that country.

It's not theirs - they should piss off and leave the country alone. So they lost the place seven hundred years ago. Time to move on, people.

The only reason there's even TALK of Kosovo not being made free is that KGB slime Putin, who's worried that a free Kosovo will give the gren light to send his little nation splintering.

Any talk of Kosovo being given back to Serbia flies in the face of democracy, decency and history.

Roland Buffoon has no grasp of History whatsoever, The Battle of Kosovo in 1389 was a battle to stave off occupation not to rip territory off from Serbia. (That one is coming up)

Even after 1389 and the Serbs loss they continued to be the majority in Kosovo until World War 2 where the Albanians under Hitler (SS Skenderbeg Division) began a crusade against the Serbs. Afterwards Josip Broz Tito (The Croatian Dictator of Yugoslavia) began allowing large numbers of Albanians to Cross over into Kosovo attempting to Court Unity with Albania which never Materialized.

So to wrap things up, Serbs never lost the Territory of Kosovo, they were occupied along with their Territory. Roland is an Ignorant Neophyte who shouldn't spout off half cocked without knowing proper Balkans History. And while he is passionate you can't mix passion and ignorance together otherwise you look like a total ignoramus.

Serbia has more right to Kosovo than the US has to Texas or the UK has to Scotland, Wales, etc.

What utter bollocks, Anonymous? Have you never actually PICKED UP AND READ a history book?

For almost FIVE HUNDRED YEARS Kosovo was a muslim country ruled by the turks.

In 1915, when the Serb invaders were driven out by the Albanians, the Kosovo population cheered them as liberating heros.

It's all FACT written down in the history books.

I recommend you open one.

15 December 2007 at 02:50  

Roland you must be writing Satire because if you're serious I am laughing my ass off. Scratch that either way I am laughing my ass off.

17 December 2007 at 03:15  

Roland's opinions reflect all serious scholarship and historical records on the issue whether you like it or not.

18 December 2007 at 12:42  

And whether you like it or not Kosovo was never independent of any country or entity that occupied the Region known as the Balkans. On top of which Ethnic Serbs made up the Majority of Kosovo in all of its forms until After Hitler's Albanian Nazi Divisions began Ethnically cleansing the Region.

So please don't try to sell me bullshit in a pretty package it is still bullshit.

18 December 2007 at 23:25  

Every half witted moron thinks he's an expert on Balkans now. ronald buffoon over there, clearly demonstrated that.

15 years ago, he didn't know which continent Kosovo belonged to, and now, he's re-writing the history of the Balkans, by copying what he read in Wikipedia.

I supposed that shouldn't surprise me, seeing how you're educated by CNN, youtube and wikipedia. One shouldn't expect much more.

Just for your own reference, around the world, the history doesn't start when the CNN cameras start rolling.

Considering Anonymous is too gutless to even offer his name, I don't think we can give too much credibility to him disputing acknowledged fact.

As far as I can see, his whole arguement rests on suggesting that Serbs held or hold the majority in the region. If that was true - it should become part of Serbia.

But it's not true. It hasn't been true for 700 years. It's proven not to be true in census, government and every other type of official documentation in applicable history.

Anonymous makes claims that are not backed up by any historical evidence at all - and he/she knows it. They're lies, basically.
