  1. Tito is turning in his grave for all of this! Such a shame what our beautiful country Yugoslavia is today.

    If he is turning in his grave it's because his plan has worked. He worked very hard to disable Serbs from having a functioning country. He left his beloved Croatia and Slovenia somewhat pure with borders they want while leaving Serbian land full of anti Serb ethnic groups.
    Serbia is full of Croats, Hungarians, Bosniaks, Albanians while Croatia is almost pure as is Slovenia. Kosovo turned out exactly as he wanted. Importing all Albanians at the expense of Serbs was a brilliant idea.
    Montenegro has a fair share of their own Albanians as has Macedonia. Notice, all Orthodox lands full of problems. Coincidence?

  2. Serbia is an honorable country that has no mafia ties. Completely 100% legit! The envy of the world. Here is proof!

    Well, Mr Ironic, in your nice link I can only read about numerous operations of the Serbian police which is fighting hard against these mafia groups and organized crime. While I cannot find a sentence about current higher state officials of Serbia having mafia ties (or being heads of mafia clans themselves, like it is in Kosovo). Sure, it's an open secret that it was like that in the past, under Milosevic, when paramilitary groups with mafia ties (under Arkan for example) committed atrocities - which is not much different to the socalled 'KLA freedom fighters'

  7. "And the likes of a Hasim Thaci or Milo Djukanovic would not have been able to succeed without the hel of the good old USA. You can thank Washington for these mafiosos being in charge of both government and crime in their homelands."
    (Fidelity, 3 May 2012 18:12)

    Don't blame others. It's the local population in these countries who managed to elect and re-elect those criminals into power, and no one else.

  8. Foreign Affairs writes that “in mafia states, government officials enrich themselves and their families and friends while exploiting the money, muscle, political influence, and global connections of criminal syndicates to cement and expand their own power”.

    This description sounds like a blueprint for the situation in Kosovo.

  12. LOL! Lets stop pointing fingers. We are in a mafia based system. Watch -> [link]
    (Zoran, 3 May 2012 16:29) Zoran interesting that is what I have been saying. You Serbs thought you could milk use for all its worth other peoples of former Yugoslavia their wealth productivity. Serbs were in the Communist Belgrade and before that Serb Monarchy state bureaucracy's party way above your population numbers ever warranted or needed. So you see Serbs abused used Yugoslavia everyone got tired of the BS it was more then enough. Then when you lazy Serb farmers thought you going to lose your free lunches "privileges" went berserk. Started murdering killing ,stealing ,raping as the video shows you were your own worse problem and the harbingers in the demise of Yugoslavia and of your self's because of your greedy blind selfishness good analogy Zoran.

  13. All lies! Totally wrong!

    ... but only because Kosovo is not a country :)

    Than we have the Orange-Mafia Communists headed by Orbángutang and spreading the orange disease all over the region, that is a nice touch extra. May they swing on the rope like Saddam or Mussolini. Slowly that may come, there is a lot to fear for them, the black Bimmer SUV has no value after the noose tightens.

  15. In section entitled “The Mafia Has The Country”, Naim stressed that the Council of Europe in 2011 published a report alleging that Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci and his political allies exert "violent control over the trade in heroin and other narcotics" and occupy important positions in "Kosovo's mafia-like structures of organized crime."

    All lies! Totally wrong!
