1. View from the uk,
    Did I hear you correctly when you spoke of Serbia’s “resolve”. Do you mean the way the Germans rolled into Belgrade after a week of bombing during WW ll, and the Serb People greeting them with flowers and jars of lubricant. Let’s not even talk about the Serbian Army’s retreat from Croatia, forcing their civilians to leave last so as to form a buffer zone between them and the advancing Croatian Army. Such brave Serb soldiers, ha!

  2. The author gives far too much credit to Trump actually putting any thought into an off-hand remark. In all likelihood he is unable to find Serbia or Kosovo on a labeled map. In his world all previous administrations mishandled everything and only his can straighten things out. If you believe this will herald a long awaited change in US policy toward the Balkans you will be disappointed. The fact is this "agreement" which is not in-fact an agreement at all, largely restates provisions of other agreements and creates more potential problems for Serbia than it resolves. The whole point of this agreement was to get Israel and Kosovo to recognize each other so that Trump can claim "another Muslim country" made peace with Israel thanks to his leadership. Something his evangelical base cares about much more than Serbia and Kosovo.

  3. Samba, to conclude my points.....
    Yes, the west underestimated Serbia. Just look at their history. They are very much people of principles. They stood up to Austro-Hungary and Germsny in WW1 at great cost to themselves. The same in WW2. And everyone in the west thought Serbia would buckle after a week of bombing in '99. But they didnt, did they?
    So what makes you think they will recognise Kosovo after everything that they lived through? Really think about that point.
    And of course everyone knows that American threats are hollow today.
    But if they did try another attack its a different landscape now. Putin would not allow an attack on Serbia, and you know it.
    Believe me, the Serbs will regain full control of their lands in good time. May be 5 years, maybe 10, perhaps 30 years or even more. But mark my words......

  4. view from the UK,
    There was no need to pay anyone to bomb Serbia. NATO, did it with gusto and gratis. Russia and China have not made a peep about helping Serbia. They need the West more than they need Serbia. If you recall, Russia ignored Serbia while she was being bombed. Some Slavic Orthodox friend Serbia has in the Russia.

  5. By default, in present tense Serbs are always very powerful in past tense - and particularly strong in a future tense.

    Mad as a hatter and twice as silly. These are indications of a mind that is losing its connection with reality, but since the fake Italian Albo lost its job at the mall the commentary has become more and more disturbing.
    Hey what happened to Israel messing with my VNP? Haven't been able to contact Tel Aviv?

  6. I'm not a fan of politicizing matters.

    The most unhelpful law in the history of Serbia is the right for heirs to divide parcels of land into equal shares. This is the pinnacle of stupidity because it is to the extreme detriment of the farmers.

    Suppose your father has 10 hectares of land and you are one of four children. If you divide that 10 hectares four ways, no one has enough land to farm but everyone has enough land to pull their attention from their goals in life in the city. It becomes even more foolish when people divide individual parcels into shares, resulting in average parcel size in the countryside being less than half an acre. Having acted out such stupidity since the departure of the Turks many generations ago, we have no one to blame for the complete ruin of the farm industry from Aranđelovac to Vranje!

  7. Since Trump is said to be having regrets that his country attacked a sovereign nation (Serbia in this case) more than 2 decades ago I hope it doesn't mean that he feels it's wrong that some Serbs were prosecuted and found guilty of war crimes they committed in Kosovo.

  8. Tom O'Simpleton......is there a chance that you can comment on the subject at hand??
    The facts are these.......the Yanks thought they could create a fake state by taking a chunk of land from a sovereign country. They thought Serbia would accept the BS, so supported a corrupt terrorist band who are Europes biggest narco dealers. 21 years on and Serbia has not buckled. Serbia has the support of half the UN members. Meanwhile Kosovo slips further into poverty. 30% of Albos left their haven between 2008-2018. And more will leave the hellhole. Its now clear America can not force Serbia to recognise its stolen lands as a state, not a chance.
    So tell us whats gonna change? How will Kosovo get a UN seat with China and Russia on the security council???
    Mark my words, the time will come when Serbian forces march into Kosovo and rightly take control of their lands. I have a feeling when the time comes 98/99 will look like a garden tea party.....
    May be 10 years, maybe 30, but it will come.....

  9. Comment, I'm afraid Clinton and his cronies (William Walker, Wesley Clarke, Engel, Albright, etc) were paid handsomly to lobby/lie and then attack Serbia and Montenegro. The reality of what really happened was ignored.
    Nobody is saying America is about to revoke Kosovo recognition but neither can they force Serbia, Russia, China, India, etc to recognise it as a state. So you can jump for joy as much as you want but Kosovo will never have a UN seat. This of course means little/no investment and poverty will continue.
    The fact is that America made a huge mistake and opened a can of worms. They also underestimated Serbias resolve. They created a problem which will last for decades to come by supporting a criminal terrorist band whose intent was to steal a chunk of a sovereign states land.
    But you continue to kiss the US ass and keep on erecting more statues of your gods.......lol......

  11. It may well be that president Trump is Rep Serbia best friend. I don't know. With millions per week in USA signing unemployed and fridges filled with food for
    Down&out,. Unemployed.
    I always thought that my idol is President Tito,
    Mrs Thatcher,
    Mr John Major, Mr Blair. After all "Spring" wrongfully accused me of having idol in Mr Trump, she, he,, may as well be right.
    I never thought that way.
    If things go bad in usa Mr Trump can always move to Portoroz all good there.

  14. President Trump is the last USA leader who will ever show any mercy or compassion for Serbia, after Trump no matter if Democrat or Republican president the USA will crack the whip on Serbia ! Don't rule out more bombings and sanctions for Serbia, the USA is very determined to erase the existence of Serbian Heritage, Culture, History and Faith in the Balkans ! USA can not wrap it's Satanic claws around Russia's neck so the next best thing is to terrorize little isolated Serbia which is totally surrounded by NAZI puppet disciples ! So the worse it yet to come for Serbia and that is a fact !!!

  15. Big problem with the US, continues with flawed policies but we don't rely on the US to fix things, it will be, with the help of, both Russia and China, where KiM gets resolved. Because we are at the turning point, it will be a slow process, and we will be patient. Same with our brothers and sisters in Montenegro.
