    Well, let's just say that Google Translate can only take you so far. "Lesh me Qime" is something entirely different from "Barba", but whatever.

    What need did the Albanians have for Russian Navy? They took the submarines and gave the Russian Navy the elbow. Vlora, Vlora!

    Much simpler:

    I see a gap of at least 1500 years, from antique Greece to Reis. This can't happen with Illyrians.

  3. jugoslavija. you want to talk cohesive...just look at how serbs cant even come to a simple agreement about their own origins and history. there is between 4 and 5 different theories for serb origins. for Albanians there is only Illyrians or daco-thracians. either way serb is the invader and we know this really chaps your hide. it's just a sick joke for you to even talk about such a subject of origins.

  4. The Serbs are the oldest race in the Balkans and everyone stems from us - Croatians, Albanians, Bosnians, Slovenians, etc... just a few religious changes over the century, but everyone has Serb blood.

    No, Serbs are migrated Sorbs from EastGerman-Czech-Polish triangle.
    The same time Croatians are Poles from Krakow area.

    The minor language differences are due that.

    There are some theories, that Slavs lived at least 1000 years longer on Balkans that we know "officially". Noting supports them.

    The area was very sparsely populated, no large kingdom was built.

    The Serbian - Bulgarian language line is an other interesting thing.

    I did read somewhere the Serbian - Bulgarian language separation started because of hostile Vlachs and Shqips in the mountains.

    I can't decide for myself and it is only important when out of nowhere the Vlachs and Shqips start to tell, they invented the Moon and the Jadran.

    Unless, of course, we believe in space ships of Judea during Roman times.

    2) Orthodox churches in Albania, Greece before Ottomans came
    3) Orthodox and Roman-Catholic influence.
    4) Albanian writings in Latin and Greek rather than in Arabic
    5) Greek war of independence.
    6) The case with Giorgio Basta. Italo-Albanian, not Turk.
    Large Albanian community in Italy from 15th Century and from 19th Century in southern Russia.
    7) Why would Turks hide in large numbers in mountains and appear in Kosovo only after Serbs left for Hungary?

    But Barbarossa is s Greek (mother side), too.
    And spent his on a Greek island, far-far from Albanian lands.
    It was a family of exceptional talents.
    And the general trend: many Albanians in armies, not that many in the navy.

    Than the case with Russian Tsar. He "imported" Orthodox Albanians as warriors and settled them around Odessa. They were good in armies, not much known about Russian navy.

    With Illyrian past I expect much more than that. Illyrians were pirates, Albanians just not.

    Their most pirate activity was around 17th century in Ulcinj.

  11. "The Illyrian theory can't explain why Balkan-Albanians were excellent in Ottoman military - but not in the navy. "

    Hayreddin Barbarossa was an Albanian Ottoman admiral of the fleet who was born on the island of Lesbos and died in Constantinople, the Ottoman capital. Barbarossa's naval victories secured Ottoman dominance over the Mediterranean during the mid 16th century, from the Battle of Preveza in 1538 until the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.

    Forget the eyes- often blue!

    You equal the Balkan-Albanian Shqip-s with Albanians from Caucasus.

    The Albanians from Caucasus had remarkable achievements about 1000 years BEFORE anyone did notice the existence of Balkan-Albanians.

    [link]

    Their literacy is known since around 430 A.D. As separate ethnic element the Caucasian-Albanians are considered to be Lezg today.

    This is their Lezginka folklore style:

    [link]

    [link]

    No comment.


    Than the engineering achievements.

    A typical building of that era is the cathedral in Etchmiadzin (completed 303)

    [link]

    and Cathedral of Bagrat in Kutaisi (11th Century)

    [link]


    The same time the first written document in Balkan-Albanian language is from 15th Century.

    No earlier than 700 years after the Etchmiadzin did Albanian churches appeared on Balkan:

    [link]


    It's day and night compared with Etchmiadzin.

    Three more churches in Albania Proper (Marmiroi church in Orikum, Holy Trinity church in Berat, and Theotokos in Libohovë). And that's it.

    These just can't be the same people.

    The Illyrian theory can't explain why Balkan-Albanians were excellent in Ottoman military - but not in the navy.

  14. @chi,everything you posted is a distortion of reality. there is no type of evidence to suggest that Albanians carried out any kind of wide scale pre planned organized attacks or crimes againt serb civilians in kosova. that is just another lie fed to serbs in order to justify the heavy hand used by the serb government. it's a fact that majoroty of serbs left kosova due to serbia itself keeping kosova region economically low. on the other hand, the serbian genocidal campaigns of terror against unarmed populations have been well documented in the region for the better part of the last 100 year or more.

    In 1937, Serbian intellectual and nationalist Vaso Čubrilović, who had been a member of Young Bosnia, proposed the expulsion of Albanians:

    In our examination of colonisation in the south, we hold the view that the only effective means of solving this problem is the mass expulsion of the Albanians. Gradual colonisation has had no success in our country, nor in other countries for that matter. If the state wishes to intervene in favour of its own people in the struggle for land, it can only be successful by acting brutally.

And, here's the rest of you history from this point forward. In the late 40's early 50's Hoxha tried to change your identity by revising all the history text books in Alboland to show an identity with people you have NOTHING in common - Illyrians. Tito gives you welfare, and you spend the next 40 years overbreeding KiM - obviously, as seen here, at the expense of education. Then in the late 80's you start raping, murdering and pillaging the Serbian communities in KiM - then, you get your poodies wacked and cry to the West and NATO for help. Late .90's, you end up on the right side of a 78 day bombing campaign by becoming the biggest puppets in the world. Bravo, great history, and I'm sure your gleaming with pride - LOL.

Kosova has USA on their side and is not worried that their agreements will not be fulfilled as it used to happen with EU.

  45. I have told several times that this has been discussed in NY several weeks and that US, amongst many, are furious and call the Kosovars a lot of bad things.
