    When push comes to shove it always boils down to this with you Albos. Making spurious claims.

    Even the old communist in Yugoslavia stated that there were 1.8 million Albos in Kosovo and this was well pre1999, but now you claim that with this 500,000 the total population was 2.3 million. Please stop playing with it otherwise you will go blind Lol.

    The half million is only recent since there is little to no employment in Kosova. If I am wrong tell me what industry has relocated its facilities to Kosovo since 1999. I can mention that the German atuo parts manufacturer Vorwerk Autotec is completing a facility in Cacak at a cost of 50 million Euros which will employ initially 1,000 Serbs. Have they announced moving to Kosova?

    Yes, there is a large Albo population in Switzerland and most come from Albania mate. In fact, there are many who play football for that country since the last decade Albania lost over 1 million to other parts of the world or Europe. Germany has about 200,000 – At the start of the Yugo wars Hans-Dietrich Genscher announced that Yugo papers were worthless and the Albos threw them away and now the heel clickers are stuck with them LOL.

    Yes, I make it all up just to mislead Albos on a Serb-based media site. Has it ever occurred that I should be on an Albo-based site?

  10. SJ, 500k voting outside Kosova, would be a low turnout. There is a huge Kosovar diaspora in Germany, Switzerland, the rest of W Europe, but also in US and Turkey, due to steady immigration ever since the Serbian occupation. Serbia not only encouraged Kosovars to immigrate, but it forcefully removed them before WWII to Turkey and Albania.

    Also, I'd rather take the official statistics from the Bureau of Statistics of Kosova, than make up number out of thin air.

    I remain in contact with this person and at the suggestion that unemployment in Kosovo was below 30% he just laughs and says name all the industry that has relocated or opened shop there. In fact nothing has changed since the early 2000s only that people leave at every opportunity.

  17. Few comments were about population trends in Serbia and Kosovo.
    I'll say something about that.
    Let's look at this chart. European births per woman.

    [link]

    2.1 child per woman is needed to achieve simple population replacement. Roughly, since this replacement rate depends on quality of health care, etc.
    In countries with more infant deaths higher child per woman ration is needed for simple population replacement.
    Population replacement means that in that case population of the country would neither increase nor decrease over time.
    That is in 0 migration scenario (nobody leaves, nobody moves in).
    Kosovo was recently established at 2.01 (same as Turkey) - still bellow replacement!!!
    Add to it that population migrates from poorer countries to more developed countries, and you have a picture.
    Fact is that European population is in decline without immigration.
    Just some facts....

    That link proves that 2014-2015 was not as bad as 1999 when KiM was under full Serbian control. According to the link that you provided, about 100000 Albanians left Kosovo in a time frame of about 6 months in 2014-2015. That's a fraction of the 700000 Albanians who departed Kosovo in a time frame of about 3 months in 1999 because of the deliberate actions of the forces under the control of the FRY and Serbian authorities.

    Albanians from 1989-99 had no jobs,no schools,no tv in Albanian and no representatives in Serbian parliament.

    And no right to visit Albania...

    I know u hate Albanians but at least tell the truth.
    Even Russia during that time used to urged Milloshevich to restore autonomy in Kosovo... which was the sane thing to do,but we all know what serbs and Milloshevich did.

What's the worst they can do? Defer EU membership to Serbia? That only works if the EU is worth joining, and after 20 years of being left out, another few years isn't going to mean anything.

    Besides, after Kosovo's "heroes" are prosecuted for war crimes, I'm sure they'll lose 20 - 30 more recognitions, which in that time another 150,000 Albanians will have left their little paradise never to return. 100 Albanians leave every month :)

Pre 1999 Albos in Kosovo had large families but today the young people have one or two at the most. So what do we have left in Kosovo? Mainly the old and people who could not find work in the EU. Has the EU or US made any attempt to improve employment or living conditions in Kosovo since 1999? Not in the slightest. In fact the only thing the west has done is reduce the budget for Kosovo thus forcing relatives living and working in the west to send more and more money so their relatives can survive.

    I doubt very much it will be over for Serbia and I doubt things will be worse than what we have already been through. Serbia is linked to the region and punishing Serbia will punish the region, which may cause uprisings in our neighbourhood.

    Best option for Serbia now is to wait this one out. Looking at our neighbours, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and Slovenia all look towards Russia as their protector while Romania is not far behind.
