1. Danny K....... amazing how you support stealing land...
    Anyhow, it appears you have a fixation with poverty in Russia and Serbia.
    For sure there is, as in most countries.
    But here are some stats for you as well.....
    According to US government stats 16.5% of American children live in poverty, nearly 1 in 6. Thats 12 million kids.
    14% of pensioners live in poverty.
    25.4% ofnative Americans live in poverty, while 21% of black people are in poverty. And compare that to 10% of white people....Racisn???
    14.3 million HOUSEHOLDS have difficulty providing food for their members due to lack of resources...
    GOBankRates survey of 2016found that 69% of Americans (adults) had less than $1000 in total savings, and 34% had no savings at all...
    And all this in America....the land of opportunity and freedom....LOL.

  2. Make Serbia Great....... the debate is about truth, justice, international law, etc. To say that the US has a powerful army and can do what they like is just stupid, simplistic and pointless.
    I was a huge critic of the Soviet Union and of harsh communism. But for decades they sure were powerful. Was I just supposed to say well so what? They can do what they like? We are allowed to debate, to discuss issues, logical opinions,etc. This is why historians are still employed, to write and debate issues.
    According to you international law, the UN, etc, is pointless? And all because some nation has a powerful army??
    In fact why are you on a debate forum? Whats the point?
    I think I get more common sence by taking to my garden wall than you.

    According to the UN, the resolution 1244 was not killed; indeed itís still alive and well in the UN and the UN recognized that Yugoslavia (FRY) was legally succeeded by Serbia.

  6. sj,
    I read the same article in the WSJ, however, what you failed to mention was that Russia, like Serbia, is a country, in spite of foreign investment, where a large portion of the population do not earn enough income to feed themselves because their govít simply does not care what happens to their citizens. BTW, I am not Albanian, though I support their cause.

If you were on the winning end, you wouldn't be chattering so much. That's my opinion, and that's my point. Maybe I'm wrong. But that's how it looks to me.

    Some buy packet of fags every day, mobile before paying for the rent. And so on. And then they go to soup kitchens, sleep rough.
    Work is the answer.
    Better 400 euro in the pocket than none!

    The Baltic states are more-less OK. At least depending from what point of view you see them.
    My point of view regarding them could be narrow (IT), but from that point of view they are OK.

    We spent most of our Summer around Pskov, St. Pete, Tallin, Riga, Stockholm and KŲnig. No complains.

    I will quote a word from a recent article published by the Wall Street Journal about the Russian economy. Yes, itís the Wall Street Journal.
    BULLETPROOF.
    It went on to say that investors looking for good returns need look no further than Russia. Yes, that came from the Wall Street Journal not Pravda.
    But if you see it otherwise tell us what has the US/EU done to help your Albos in Kosova?????

    US companies Aptiv Packard, Amphenol Automotive Technology are in Serbia proper plus NCR is currently building in New Belgrade an investment worth $90 million to employ 4,200.
    In 2018, the US spent $22 million subsidizing cheese production in the highlands of southwest Serbia.
    These are just a few so how much have the west spent in Kosova? I could be wrong but I donít think NCR has a branch in Pristina?
    No one saw much happening in Ukraine, but today the west has washed its hands of that country leaving it to the mercy of Moscow. Look at Syria. The US occupies a small section of that land only to steal the oil, but soon it will have to leave.
    I think Albos like you keep burying their heads in the sand or placing yourselves in a foetal position rocking back and forth and repeating over and over again the US will save them.

    What would you have them do? Bomb the K-Albanians into submission?
    Russia is helping Serbia HOLD ONTO KOSOVO. Kosovo hasn't gone anywhere. It's still a territory of Serbia according to UN and if it wasn't for Russia that would've changed years ago.
    It's going to take time to sort all this out but one thing's for sure, Russia is the only reason we haven't lot Kosovo and Kosovo becoming a UN member.

    Yep true. The point is not about that. Its about international law, wars of aggression, truth and justice, betterment of life, etc.
    I can simply say that Russias actions in Crimea is just pursuit of their interests, and they can do it because they are a superpower. Why all the fuss from western countries? Any comment from you....???

    At least take a trip to Serbia and see for yourself before claiming how well off Serbs are. Most families can barely earn enough to feed themselves without the help of soup kitchens. You really annoy the average Serb with your pontificating about how well Serbia is doing, if you only knew you would be ashamed

  15. Danny K......Nobody is saying Russia is a wealthy and prosperous country. The break up of the Soviet union and starting a new economic structure takes time. Its a huge nation. When Yeltsin was in power he allowed the likes of Abramovic to rape natural resources and become super rich. And there were some 200 such individuals who helped themselves to many Billions. Putin put an end to that. It belongs to the Russian state and people. For the betterment of all.
    But its a fact that things are improving in Russia. And of course they are not in debt to anywhere near what America is ($23+ trillion).
    If you follow events you may have noted that Russia has offered to help Serbia re: Kosovo. But Vucic does not want an armed conflict, appears not to want to raise the stakes and certainly wants neutrality. Unlike Montenegro, Albania, Croatia, N. Macedonia, etc. It appears Vucic wants a peaceful resolution of compromise, which Albanians are not interested in. But the day will come when the US gives up on Albanians, just like the Kurds...

    Well letís look at the countries that are part of the EU and have, as you claim, prospered.

    Slovenia - Employees at Slovenia's intelligence and security agency SOVA went on strike in December 2017 demanding higher wages and better working conditions claiming they were "understaffed and underpaid."
    When was the last time such an agency went on strike in a prosperous country? Its like the NSA and CIA went on strike.

    Croatia Ė In 2018, 29,000 Croats moved permanently to Germany. In October 2019 World Bank stated that 21.9% of Croatians have emigrated to other parts of the EU or world. Croatia after Malta has the highest rate of emigration in the EU.

    Then we can look at Romania, Bulgaria, Malta, Hungary, Poland, the Baltic states etc, etc. All a great success by your calculation eh?
    If you want more facts let mew know otherwise stop pretending youíre a Serb. For Godís sake have a little dignity.

  20. "Serbia is not a Russian state. Why are the Russians respecting Serbias neutrality?? Do explain."

    I wouldn't say that Serbia is exactly militarily neutral. The Serbian government has interests too, and pursues those to the extent that it is capable. This is really the crux of the: every government follows their interests. It just happens to be that the US has the largest military and thus tends to be able to pursue its interests to the greatest extent. So, in sum, you are angry because you are on the losing end of the stick.

    "Why have the Russians no bases in Serbia, unlike in many of US puppet states such as Albania, Croatia, Montenegro, soon N Macedonia??"

    It certainly isn't because Putin is a nice guy.

    "And for sure nato would never had attacked Serbia had Putin been Russian president. The proof being Ukraine, Syria and Venezuela. If Putin was not around the US would have invaded Syria and killed Assad (as they did in Iraq and Libya). Venezuela would have been invaded and a US puppet government now in place. And of course Venezuelan oil would be pumped by US oil firms.
    Yes, many countries would have had US "democracy" forced on them if it wasnt for a powerful Russia and China.
    You anti Russians must be so frustrated now. Thank God for a balance of power. (View from the uk, 5 December 2019 00:20)

  24. For some time now, Vucic has been making some rather ridiculous statements. I feel he is making us Serbs look stupid. Does he not think before speaking! He knows very well that Serbia must join the EU, if it is ever to prosper. Kosovo was lost long ago, any thinking being knows this. If Vucic canít lead Serbia out of poverty, he should make way for someone who can.
