    Your response is what I expected - rambling and devoid of any fact and meaning. The only regions that long for independence are Greek Northern Epirus and Macedonian Mala Prespa.

    You are correct that Gheg and Tosk are dialects of the Albanian language, however there does seem to be some historic tension, animosity that exists between these two groups on either side of the Shkumbin River - as the world saw during the Pyramid crisis in 1997.

    Rusty Knee, your hubris is amusing. Perhaps you should apply that rapier wit and 'intellect' and that passion for research that you have and address the enormous problems that ramshackle Albania has - namely crime, corruption, poverty, political instability, mass emigration rates, blood-feuds, substandard sporting teams etc.

    i know of albanisation, and i will not just float platitudes that its well known the world over like your lazy arse does.
    here are some hard facts so you don't have to break your brain trying to find facts that weren't given to you while bouncing on gjysh's knee

    Greater Albania (1940-1944)[edit]
    In the newly attached territories to Albania of Kosovo and western Macedonia by the Axis powers, non-Albanians (Serbs and Macedonians) had to attend Albanian schools that taught a curricula containing nationalism alongside fascism and were made to adopt Albanian forms for their names and surnames.

    An albanization campaign was initiated as soon as the city of Korce was handed over to the authorities of the newly established Albanian Principality in March 1914: most Greek schools were closed down, Greek speech was prohibited in churches, while shop signs and other Greek inscriptions in the city were tore down.

    Not looking very bright there Mary, my little lamb. The taxes exist because daddy will not recognize you. The taxes are a desperate attempt at getting daddy's signature. Cmon it basic stuff here. In your fight of so called independence you will ALWAYS need Serb approval. Always always alwaaa…aa ys ahahajjajajaja so you guys can sit on your keyboards and type till the cows come home and when they do, the cows will tell you, ain't nothing going to change without daddy Serbias permission. There is NOTHING you can do to change this fact.

  5. Vorios Ipiros, the north of Epiri already gained independence when it was ceded back to Albania. the south of Epiri is the occupied territory that longs for independence. but what does mala prespa have to do with anything? there are no greeks that live in mala prespa. and the majority of 'greeks' that live in Epiri(both north and south) are either Albanians or Aromanians that are considered as 'greeks' by certain politics in Greece simply because of their religion.

    this is how serbia, turkey and greece were created and established under theocratic lines where these 3 countries approriated lands outside the conception of their original state formation and now claiming land rights based on religious affiliations.

    i'm not sure what your point was for stating 'Gheg - Tosk entity', but you should know that those are mere dialects of the Albabnian language, and the Albanian language nearly became the official language of modern greece on multiple occasions just in the last 100 years.

  14. This is a response to CHI.

    For you to sit there and say Albanians were sitting as by standards while NATO(U.S) illegally supposedly bombed Serbia is by far the most ridicilouse comment you can make. There was a war with the Albanians and the Serbs before the Americans got involved. You had UQK who went to war with Serb forces for a while before the U.S got involved. Was UQK effective as the U.S? Of course not. How can you be with a AK47 that after shooting 50 rounds the tips would melt compared to the army that Serbia had from the former Yugoslavia. But that does not change the fact that even outgunned and outmatched the Albanians took a stand against you to start a war that they finished with the help of the Americans. Now i understand with your " ILLEGAL TALK and what not because you were on the losing end of this whole thing. It makes sense. But is it right? NO. You lost the war like you did in Croatia and when you lose the war you also lose land its Basic knowledge in the thing called WAR.

    Now i do agree with a peaceful treaty being signed. Because i think peace has for a long time has eluded us in the Balkans in general and while we might not be like western Europeans we are also not the middle east. We do have more common sense then that and i do hope that treaties are signed that are long lasting because we do have to think of the future and not sit here and argue about taxes or whats illegal or whats not because we will never agree.

  15. This is a response to Ari Gold.

    You comparing North Cyprus to Kosovo is like apple and oranges. Why? Because North Cyprus does not have no where near any of the recognitions that Kosovo has We both know that no great power whether in the East or West is recognizing it compare to Kosovo who has 95% of the WEST support which in the bigger scheme of things is what really matters.

    Now for taxes and the prices going up. That is a fallacy and the reason i say this is because i have family in Albania and Kosovo and let me tell you prices in Kosovo have not doubled by any chance as i speak to them daily. The products that were coming from Serbia have been replaced by Albania and Macedonia quickly. So what your saying is 100% untrue.

    Now as far as your response to the current administration wanting a deal between in Kosovo/Serbia that is 100% true i think they do want a deal with both places recognizing eachother. But we both know Serbia isn't going to accept that. But the main focus how the U.S feels about Kosovo is still the same and nothing is changing there as majority of U.S politicians over 90% support the idea of Kosovo being 100% independent. So again your reaching there with your comment.

    Now as far as Serbs is concerned in Kosovo i am 100% aware that the majority of them are decent people who are caught in the middle of Pristina and Belgrade and i think thats extremely sad because they shouldnt have to suffer due to politics on either side.

  16. You do realize that land is won by wars?? It is common knowledge. Serbia in 1999 lost to NATO and the Albanians. If we are going to go on the whole "stealing" land thing the U.S would not even exist today. But that's not how things work in reality.

    This is the thing man.. We can sit here and argue and blame whoever for whatever issue is going on in Kosovo and Serbia. But the facts remain the same. Serbia does not have control of Kosovo we both know that. You also have to understand that the ball is not in Serbia's court. Your poker hand is weak due to the U.S specially and the Albanians know it. How are removing the taxes going? Not so good is it. Let me brake this down for you. Every country can pull their recognition but the U.S and u still will have the Kosovo u have today. The only option you have is to make lives for Serbs easier in Kosovo and if you dont want to do that. Fine. But understand that the U.S and Kosovo isnt giving you a inch of the north.

    Sure territory is gained and lost in wars, but there's also peaceful negotiations and treaties bud. Maybe NATO did win in the 90's, but don't include the Albanians because you were bystanders sitting back and watching an illegal campaign against a soverign country. History tells us that most illegal dealing don't last, and at some point there could be additional territory changes. We're patient and we'll wait our turn to reclaim what the Serbs had fought for sine time immemorial.

    "Serbia does not have control of Kosovo we both know that."

    -It's true Serbia does not have control of Kosovo* due to NATO occupation, but that fact alone does not make Kosovo* a country but an occupied part of Serbia. Cyprus does not have control over its north either, but that doesn't change the fact that Northern Cyprus is not a country.

    "You also have to understand that the ball is not in Serbia's court. Your poker hand is weak due to the U.S."

    -The ball is in Serbia's court because the U.S. administration is the one power most on board with revising the territorial make up of Kosovo* just to get Serbia's signature. Western countries are insisting on dialogue and reaching a lasting compromise quicker than any interested party.

    "How are removing the taxes going? Not so good is it."

    -You are extremely delusional if you think the taxes have any notable affect on the Serbian economy what. Trade between Kosovo* and the rest of Serbia account for less than 2% of Serbia's overall economy. Those taxes, which result in higher prices in Kosovo* hurt Albanians more.

    "The only option you have is to make lives for Serbs easier in Kosovo"

    -Now THIS is really the only card you have. All you can do is make life a living hell for Serbs in the ethnic ghettos below the Ibar. But that's not improving the lives of ordinary Albanians who are fleeing Kosovo* in numbers never seen before.

    Kosova's serbs are free to leave Kosova but they can't never geographicaly merge with Serbia. They are putting their futures at risk by letting Vucic use them. This is the reason why a lot of serbs (the ones with clean criminal record) left Kosova on 1999 so they aren't used as Serbia's political hostages and are left alone to live their lives. Serbs are a tiny minority in Kosova thanks to Serbia's politics. I guess this political backfiring in Serbia is considered a "success".

  28. Most Serbs in Kosovo-Metohija live below the Ibar. Any "dual sovereignty" plan must include Serbia having complete sovereignty over the north, Gracanica, Strpce, the towns in Kosovska Pomoravlja with a Serb majority, the Muslim Gorani's in Dragas who have always been loyal to Serbia...and the monasteries of Decani, Pec and Prizren.

    Understand, only Serbia could make "Kosovo*" a functional place to live. Otherwise, it will always be a partially recognized pseudostate with no prospects for ordinary Albanians. For this, Serbia has to get something substantial in return back.

    Otherwise, the status quo is better for Serbs than Albanians. While Serbs in Kosovska Pomoravlja have a higher birthrate than in Belgrade, Albanians are leaving Kosovo-Metohija like never before.

  35. This is the thing. If we choose to live in reality then we have to accept the following.

    1. Serbia has lost Kosovo and any type of control over it

    2. There is around 140,000 Serbs in Kosovo that live there today currently.

    So what do we do? Do we keep this same policy where Serbia does not recognize Kosovo and Kosovo keep sits 100% TAX witch effects mostly Serbs in the North where the majority of Serbs live.

    Or do we come to reality and understand that the Albanians and the Americans are not going to let Kosovo become Bosnia where its politically deadlocked in every issue?

    Here is the solution i propose and the Serbs/Albanians on this page can agree or disagree.

    1. Serbia accepts the independence of Kosovo with the idea of a autonomy in the north where Serbs can have their own schools,police etc.. under the state of Kosovo and in return Kosovo gets Presevo,Bujanoc.
