1. you didnt do any favors for yourself or for serbia by trying to mention the austrian study because both Schumacher and Matzinger have openly stated that Albanians are natives of this part of Europe and their language has been spoken there for the better part of the last 4,000 years. They are saying the opposite of what you and other serbs are saying, but here you are shamelessly using them as a reference for something.
    you would know all about the ottoman masters because serbs had their own history of being vassals and handing over large numbers of women as concubines to the turks. whereas the Albanians only gave their sons for military service and Albanians even ended up taking power away from the serbian-turkish sultans through military force, and established their own independent states in the heart of the empire.

  2. Miloš Obilić no one nation or people can claim to be 100% anything. The Illyrians themselves had intermingled with various other tribes and peoples including Celts, Goths, thracians, Latins etc. But that still doesn't change the fact that Illyrian is the primary ancestor to the Albanians, as well as their language. This is the main conclusion by the majority of the world's scholars, compared to the 3 or 4 scholars that disagree. And those very few scholars that don't subscribe to the Illyrian theory, would rather still place Albanians as thracians. There is no other prevalent theories set out by academia for Albanians other than Illyrians or thracians. this means the serb propaganda regarding Albanian origins has no place in the realm of reality. it's just desperation on serbia's part for land grabbing agenda and attempt to disenfranchise the indigenous Albanian to their rightful lands such as Dardania. And don't even try to start with the genetic fantasy talk here. There is not a single genetic research anywhere in the world that has labeled I2A as 'illyrian'..that's just your own claim based from wishful thinking
    Let us keep in mind that there are 4 or 5 different theories on serbian origins in which even other serbs cant agree with eachother,. this is a big difference and a big joke compared to the Albanians and the Illyro-thracian theories.

  3. Chi, what is with your obsession on the Albanian Illyrian heritage? You should be proud of your own heritage and stop chasing after something else that doesnt belong to you. This alone shows how out of touch with reality you are and you don't even know your own langauge and history. Serbs speak a Slavic language. The Illyrian(Albanian) language is an ancient langauge that stems from the Paleo-balkan family long before the arrival of serbs to the region. if you actually took the time to learn your own heritage history and language you wouldn't be making all these wild and delusional claims...especially on Albanian Dardania.
    (Dardania'Alb, 26 January 2019 08:35)

    Don't be such a idiot.
    There's no evidence Albanians are - exclusively - of Illyrian descent, and the lack of Illyrian DNA haplogroups (I2A) in your blood isn't helping your claim either.
    But what everyone does know, except you, is that your Prizren league invented this Albs-are-Illyrian myth to gain Albanian foothold in the Balkans after your masters the Ottomans were defeated and en-mass were leaving the peninsula; in the 1950's your boss Hoxha only ensured everyone started to believe in these myths by altering history books with his forgery.

    Oh, and your language sucks Illyrian balls.

    The intelligent world long ago discredited US “announcements”, and the only dimwits who actually believe US “announcements” are trolls with three fake Serbian farms and an army of farm workers, none of whom know how to prune vegetation.

    You kinda proved a good point without me needing to make it. If that's all you've got to go on, you're standing on rather thin strings. America is an enornmous country with various branches of government. Just because a few employees push one way and a commentator later stretches their actions to try to make the government look very pro-independent Kosovo while visiting Pristina, it doesn't magically turn those actions into national policy.

    Humanitarian goals!! More Albanians citizens were killed with NATO bombing than Serbian. Only a moron believes that the bombing was an exercise in saving the Albanians from ethnic cleansing which was a Hollywood script. The fact of the matter is that the US still did not meet it's national interest because it still does not have control of Serbia which was the main goal of the Rambouillet ultimatum. Complete and free access of NATO through Serbian territory. The Germans tried the same with the pact with Prince Pavle in 1941 , however even that pact only allowed German Nazi troops temporary transit through Yugoslavian territory. In hindsight, it was the best agreement for Yugoslavia but Churchill pushed a coup de etat with Yugoslav General Simovic which led to "Operation Punishment" , the German Nazi bombing of Belgrade and eventual invasion of Greece and Yugoslavia. Sound familiar?

    Completely the opposite, the deal with Gazprom has put Serbia in a position to be a major transit point for various pipeline projects including TurkStream which means more a royalty tax revenue base for the Serbian government.
