    No, it's not hard to understand that, but I think that Berisha will have something to say about that.
    Kosovo is not Albania and a leader of Kosovo is really not supposed to have an apatite big enough to want to have an Albanian flag behind him.

    You should see the Tirana Municipality flag, absolutely nothing to do with Skanderbeg flag! Outregeous! At least Kosovo flag is useful as it has a map on it, so to remind the EU that if north by some accidents is invaded by Serbian troops...then EU is responsible for protecting that meaningless flag... But Munisipality of Tirana flag? Totally outrageous, actually if Skanderbeg woke up just for one day ,first thing would do, would be to force to exile in Naples the designer of that flag...how dare that arrogant of designer place the wolf, the symbol of another albanian prince for Tirana, which is just several miles away from Kruja!...seriously though, serbs miss the point, the Kosovo flag is merely a state flag, not a national flag, the whole concept of Kosovo is creating a state which not only sees the ethncicies equally, but also does not favour one over oanother, despite numerical disporportion, even though 95% is ALbanian population, but considering the tragic histories of past, such solution was needed,it is not about ''albanian victory over serbs'' , and the new flag is suposed to be a pact beetwen different ethncies who give up a little of national pride for the sake of bringing different ethnicities together, so the borders of 1974, that serbs themselves draw for kosovo ,can function nad not be divided among Albania and Serbia...after the illegal removal of Kosovo status by Serbia in 1989, yet both albanians and serbs there are free to wave the flag they want, there is no violation of any laws, i m sure serb politicans in Kosovo pose close to their own national flags as well, nothing wrong with it. Wrong doing is burning a flag, not waving a flag. I wonder how the vojvodina flag...looks like.

  3. A picture paints a thousand words!
    Could I suggest that if the man wishes to be taken seriously as the leader of a so called independant state that he might do well to be photographed in front of at least one of the so called independant state's flags. Better still, maybe if he wants to have five flags behind him then maybe a better choice migght be the flag of his so called independant state and perhaps the flags of the ethnic groups whom he so proudly proclaims are given equal rights in this new so called independant and ethnically diverse utopia. Just a suggestion......

  16. The fact that the Albanians believe Thaci shows the naivity of the Albanians in Kosovo. Do they not remember that Thaci said that there would be 100 recognitions in the first year? This guy overpromises and underdelivers but large part of the populace is so ignorant and uneducated that they continue to believe his lies. The Kosovo Albanians live in the conditions they do because of Thaci and his cronies, not because the EU doesn't want to have Kosovo in the EU. Hopefully one day the Albanians will mature and realize this and will stop blaming other countries for their problems and start blaming their politicians.

  30. "It is irrefutable that there are discrepancies in election results, but this is a consequence of the lack of political culture and an expression of dissatisfaction with the results by certain political parties which have not won citizens' trust," Thaci said.

    -- If there is a "lack of political culture" and "dissatisfaction with the results", then it's a bit difficult to take seriously his statement that the elections "fulfilled high international standard and were positively assessed by the U.S., EU, and other international observers", considering widescale voting fraud has been cited in at least one-third of all the voting districts.

    But I suppose he's just having a bit of fun insulting the intelligence of his audience since he's even suggesting visa liberalization by next year, and NATO membership by the end of his supposed uninterrupted four-year mandate as president.
