  2. It was wrong if they expected that Serbia start war over Kosovo. It did once and look how it ended. Kosovo will not be recognized, and hopefully their life will improve. This is the best achievement for a long time, so I think it is unfair to blame the Government and its representative for betrayal.

    Kosovo has always been and will always be serbian territory just like Vojvodina even if the population is 100%albanian, just because you occupie it doesnt mean it belongs to you. By the way the serbs never wanted to control the part of Kosovo where you are a majority but north where we are a majority. Exactly what about that is it that you dont understand?No more heroin for you it destroyed your brain if you ever had one from the beginning.

    All Albanians ever do here is insult and the funny things is that you all act out all the worst behaviors you accuse others of doing. The only people who will have a hard time integrating into Europe is the Albanians, not the Serbs. Further, your happy deal will not allow you to be a member of the UN. That means not international sports competitions either, including the Olympics. You'd better find a way to start living peacefully with others or you will be left in a black hole for ever.

  6. Important note to all Serbs :

    I see some friends here are afraid of albs overwhelming over the Serbs. That they are too many, give birth like rabbits, etc...

    Well, when was the last truly reliable census in Kosovo? The world just accepts that USA officially prints that's all. Kosovo, Serbia, Greece, Albania will have as many people as USA wants. I have been living in a USA banana republic protectorate for most of my life (Greece), and the demographic statistics here were really funny : I remember in the 80s we were 8,000,000. Then, in the God Almighty Ancient Democratic Holy year of the Olympics 2004, and while the average woman gave birth to less than 2 children, suddenly we were... 11,000,000 of proud Ancient Democratic European Hellenes. LOL!!!!

    short and long of this : it all depends on USA. They can make countries like Kosovo be born into steady states, or they can destroy them in less than one year.

    Of course Serbs is a totally different story here. Much more robust and natural being than the albs.

    One reason i see for Serbs and Albs to live separately, is the fear of infection by the asian backwards albanian culture, and their constant worship of lies and deceptions.

    We, Greeks, adored lies and deceptions as our religion, and the result is our demise.

    SERBS HAVE TO STAND AND FIGHT. They are the strongest nation in the balkans after all....

    Let the albs kick in now....

  7. The recycled communists in Belgrade have sold out the Serbs of North Kosovo just as they did to the Serbs of the Krajina. As a prerequisite to signing the agreement, it should be mandated that Dacic & Nikolic live in N. Kosovo under Prishtina law. I find it amazing that these traitors in BG can give away Kosovo without any representation from the people who are affected by their decision.

    And to you Serbs who think this will normalize Serb-Albanian relations, it's time for you people to come back down to earth. The Albanians of Kosovo want every Serb in Kosovo dead or gone. Why does any sane thinking individual believe that the Albanians will, all of a sudden, begin treating the Serbs of Kosovo in a civil manner?

    The facts are that the creation of Kosovo violated international law as well as the Yugoslav constitution, as did the creation of Croatia as a country and Bosnia Hercegovina. Therefore, international agreements mean nothing. It's the reality on the ground that matters. For the past 14 years Albanians have been destroying Serbian churches, cemeteries, killing & driving Serbs from their homes right under the noses of the international community. Does anyone really think this agreement will reverse that? The agreement was signed by the leader of a terrorist organization for god's sake.

    I only hope that the Serbs of N. Kosovo stay strong and resist this agreement. A very sad day for true Serbs.

    You claim UN recognized Serbian province, however, Serbia has gone to extremes to insist that the UN be status neutral, which means the UN does not recognize Kosovo as either an independent state nor a Serbian province.

  11. It would be interesting to hear what Serbs outside of the North think (Rada Trajkovic?) about the deal. I would also appreciate to hear what are specific problems that people in the North think will arise from the agreement? So far, I heard that they are against having Kosovo documents, but this can be overcome by having also Serbian documents. I do not see practical consequences of Kosovo low application as this is anyway written by EU, as it is Serbian low as well. I understand that people would prefer status quo, but this is impossible. Status quo is not sustainable and is not on offer. On offer was this agreement (which is very good for Serbs considering how it could have been) or military action to forcefully take this territory. Don't forget that solders there are mostly from countries that recognised Kosovo as independent country so they can easily find a legal justification for such an action. You cannot say that Dacic did not try as he discussed issue with Putin few days ago. The fact that he has signed agreement after meeting Putin, tells all.

It's stupid because the only kosovo law they will obey are judiciary and police (crime laws), which are probably the same as serbia's or eventially both will be the same like EU criminal laws, so it makes no difference really, it's just their fake pride that is driving this protest, that they can't be ruled by people they used to dispise and think they are superior over, i am neither on serbian or albanian side, but kosovo serbs are really selfish, the majority of serbs outside of kosovo are happy with the agreement and want to move on and become a normal country, and those people are protesting over obeying the law of kosovo province, augh for god sake, some people are just born stupid...

  17. Congratulations Danilo for your pragmatic and realistic aproach. If more people on both sides share the same approach, live of millions would improve. Regardless of the past, we have to share the same borders and live (hopefully in peace) side by side. Time on earth is short, let's try to improve our lives rather than spending it fighting each other. This agreement, though mediocre, it's historic because of a potential for a normalized relationship between Albanians and Serbs. After centuries of conflict there's a possibility for peace between both nations, hence a more prosperous and peaceful Balkans.

Serbs don't all vote for the same party, whereas Albanians most likely would in protest. There is no scenario under this scenario where you could make a government in Serbia without Albanian Block.

  23. Peggy,

    Don't you realize that Serbia would become an Albanian state in Kosovo was re-integrated with Serbia?

    The last elections had DS and SNS at an almost 50-50 split at about 900K votes each, give or take 40k.

    What would 1 million+ Albanians added to the mix do if they all voted in a block?

    Albanian Block would easily be the second-most important political party in Serbia, if not the most important/strongest

    Or would you not allow Albanians to vote?

    Serbia with Kosovo would be either:

    1) Not a Serbian state
    2) Not a democratic state.


    So, while you're wishing for those for this deal to go live "under Kosovo laws", the funny thing is that if Serbia somehow succeeded in absorbing Kosovo, people would be living under "Kosovo laws", except in Belgrade this time.

    This is so obvious just from looking at a pie-chart of Serbian election results.

We in Europe have a common future. Those who lead the Albanian majority will also one day face justice if they have committed any wrongs against any of their citizens irrespective of their ethnic origin.
