    I mention 500,000 Syrians losing there lives and your off with the pixies about radical Muslims. The war was started by the US arming the opposition and radical Muslims mate. In Iraq the US attacked that country based on fake information made up by the US. In both Iraq and Syria the leadership did not nurture radical Islam. Both Iraq and Syria had secular governments. In Syria the Christians are with Assad because the alternative is US backed radical Muslims.

    Monthly job creation figures released in the US are mostly low paid work at $7.50/$12.50 an hour. People on those wages must work two jobs just to keep their heads above water and they canít afford medical insurance.

    You cannot compare a burger flipper in the US and the same in Serbia because the cost of living are different. Rent is higher in the US than Serbia; the cost of groceries in the US are higher than in Serbia.

    The salary for a primary teacher in Oklahoma is $33,000. They are so drastically underpaid they are forced to donate plasma, work multiple jobs, and go to food pantries to provide for their families. They live from pay check to pay check.

    Now these teachers earn more than a burger flipper!!!!!!!
    According to their pay scale they are much richer than a US paid burger flipper but due to cost of living being high they have problems living on that salary. See the connection??????

    And if youíre a Serb than I am French.

    It must be Albo English because living in Serbia does not automatically make you a Serb since this name refers to an ethnic group plus there are other ethnic groups in Serbia such as Hungarians, Albos etc. Although they are not ethnic Serbs they are citizens of the Republic of Serbia.

    If there no end to my having to educate you???????

  4. "...itís not monocultural. So are you an ethnic Serb my little Albo friend?"

    You seem to have a problem understanding three simple letters: Y-E-S. But the bigger problem is that you think ethnicity matters. You remind me of Seselj.

    "So it near 500,000 in Syria alone then if we take a look at Iraq that is even higher not taking into account the constant violence there as well."

    Radical Muslims attack democratic governments and themselves, the US military intervenes to help the many people caught in the violence, and then you turn around and blame the US for the violence. If you don't see the logical problem with your attempt to blame everything bad on the US, then I will never be able to help you.

    "Once again your comparing apples with oranges. Cost of living in the US is much higher than in Serbia so its very stupid to convert your famous $12.50 an hour into dinars. By the way that US $12.5 is still classified as the working poor wages."

    You cite the wage of a burger flipper and then say "that's a low wage." No duh its a low wage. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out!

    In southern Serbia, taxi drivers earn 600-800 dinars per day. Working ten hours per day, that is $0.60-0.80/hour. With the cost of living being 40% less than in the States, that translates into $0.84-1.12/hour in American wages. That makes an American burger flipper ten times wealthier than a Serbian burger flipper. That is something to brag about, Seselj.

    Death to millions? It isn't necessary to use hyperbole when you write about the faults of "the west."

    So it near 500,000 in Syria alone then if we take a look at Iraq that is even higher not taking into account the constant violence there as well. I must agree its all hyperbole.

    There has been a decline but not as dramatic as you make it out to be. The standard of living is still five to ten times higher in the States than in Serbia

    I do not live in KiM. And nearly the rest of the country is mono-cultural; so you're statement doesn't really apply.

    I moved to Serbia to make my home here. In fact, I'm the only one in my family to choose this path. If I didn't love Serbs, I would not have moved here. I cannot say that Serbs are good in general because humans are evil from birth (including myself). But there are many fun, interesting Serbs. It has been a pleasant, if sometimes bumpy, experience.

    No, dear, they did not blame Serbs; they blamed criminals like Mladic who committed genocide. Just because Mladic happened to be of Serb ethnicity, that does not make all Serbs criminals.

    As for ICTY, that court was proposed by Russia, approved by Russia and all judges were vetted and approved by Russia (several of them more than once) over almost a quarter century of Court's existence. So, if you believe that Russia's goal is to humiliate you, feel free to sort that out with Russia!

    It doesn't matter whether you wrote that or not. If you want to belittle France for thinking that they are still a superpower, you need to keep in mind that your own nation is not one and never was. Therefore, you have no basis for criticizing France because they lost something because your country never even achieved superpower status. Think about that for a minute.

    "OK you are an Albo living in my Serbia. So what?"

    If you had noticed my earlier comments, you would know that I am an ethnic Serb. Therefore, I was adding "living in Serbia" (not, by the way, in our southern province of Kosovo) to "being an ethnic Serb." And in sj's ultra-nationalist views (which I don't subscribe to), I would be "more Serb" than him so it is doubly crazy that sj calls me an Albanian. To summarize: I am more Serbian than sj, so what is this nonsense about calling me an Albanian?

    People carried crosses with Cyrillic writing on them.
    I also went on the radio speaking about the Red Cross telling me that they send any donations to Croat and Muslim areas when I asked if I could make a donation to the Serbs in Sarajevo through them.
