    Yes we celebrate Veterans Day to honor all who have served our country in war and peace. We also celebrate Memorial Day for all who have given their life for America. But we do not celebrate Pearl Harbor Day as it is considered one of the saddest days of American history.

    "But pathetic Serb criminals where saved by U.S.A and Britain"
    ---…--

    So the rag tag Serbs that were in control of a third of Croatia, for how long Lenny?, were actually saved from the Croatian military machine by being attacked and bombed by the US and UK. I suppose the bombardment of Serbian refugees by the US and UK (Gotovina was innocent??) was also for their own good.
    The war is over, hopefully for ever, and soon enough also hopefully,the hundreds of thousands of ethnically cleansed Serbs will be able to return to their ancestral land and be compensated accordingly.
    There were many Pathetic Armies that totally owe every bit of their 'victory', to the USA, UK and NATO, in ex YUG.
    If it wasn't for the west's involvement there would be no Croatia, maybe just the province of Zagreb in Serbia. Croatians, Bosniaks and Albanians all showed the world how much of a match they were to Serbs in the years before foreign intervention,(ie. years of sanctions, media propaganda illegal recognitions , airstrikes and military aid), NO match at all!
    all that aid, but still your beloved Banja Luka is the capital of Republica Srpska forever! how many of your brigades can change that Lenny Boy???

    This is what I have been saying – its gets bigger with the telling. How the mighty Croats forces defeated the entire Serb army. God helps with idiots like Lenard. The real problem is that Croats defeated no one ever. It’s a bone stuck in their throat that they can’t remove. Even when the cowardly Croats attacked their allies the Bosnaiks, these bunglers could not get even that right because the Bosniaks turned everything on the heads and were on the verge of wiping out the Croats in Bosnia. The Croats are only good for one thing – killing old men and women and defenceless people and that is why there is this burning in the chest trying to prove something against the Serbs.
    “....13 Serb brigades defeated them. Croatians where on the outskirts of criminally occupied Banja Luka”
    Capitan Fruit Cake, this was part of the withdrawal agreed in the Dayton Agreement not because of mighty Croats forces. I know it hurts you cannot defeat the Serbs and it always will – we are far superior to Croats whoas soldiers are only good at peeling potatoes in the kitchen.

Croatians with others also Serbs armed mostly with hunting rifles short on ammunition defending their town. Put the living fear in the Serbian communist/fascist army. So much that war mongering expansionist criminal Serbia gave up in fear scared its criminal forces will be totally destroyed in Croatia. Same in Bosnia when the Bosnian government asked the Croatians to put a end to minority murdering criminal Serb army. Only two elite Croatian brigades [link] took on 13 Serb brigades defeated them. Croatians where on the outskirts of criminally occupied Banja Luka and minority Serb rebels criminal capital to deal a final blow to the criminals.

  10. Bottom line is it's a Serbian celebration of bravery of soldiers that layed down their lives against an Empire bent on conquering the world. I don't care what friggen religion you are, only heathens take pride in a vicious empire. For the record I have no issues with the croats, my grandmother was croat. Not every country had the will to stand up to Hitler, and the Croats have had their share of victories against the Turks. Serbs and Croats need to move forward.

    Now as far as the Albanian people here taking pride, and reveling in the conquests of the Ottoman empire go. Do you find pride in the fact that the only reason you exist in Kosovo today is because the USA bailed you out? Keep in mind USA is the greatest ally of Israel. So technically the Jew lovers saved your butts. So next time you hypocritically point your fingers at Serbs while you sit in your homes and make racist comments toward the Jews just remember your only there because the Jews best friends kept you from being a fading memory.

What devastated the Ottomans and stopped their advance for a couple of decades were the Mongols in 1402, not something insignificant like Serbia which was just a vassal of the Ottomans after 1389.

    'The battle was also a major blow to the Ottoman campaign, and although the Ottomans did eventually take over most of the Balkans, it took them over a hundred years to do so. After the destruction of their forces at Kosovo, the Ottomans were forced to send inexperienced reserve armies to Europe. This problem was partly solved with the "recruitment" of Jannisaries from the Balkans. The delay in Ottoman advancement also effectively stopped the Ottomans from invading central and west Europe, as it gave time to central European nations to fortify and mount proper defenses.'

  23. The battle of Kosovo is a completely insignificant event in European history. Frankly, its a completely insignificant event for Serbia too, but it became mythologized in the 19th century to act as some sort of rallying cry against the Ottomans and of course to justify the conquest of Kosovo. Historians know only 2 things about this battle, that Lazar and Murad died. There's no evidence that Brankovic ever defected, there's no evidence that Milos Obilic was even a real historical character and all the oral traditions about it have their roots in poetry, written around 300 years after the event took place. Its nonsense to believe that it stopped Ottoman incursions into Europe, they conquered Serbia soon after, along with Greece and were on the outskirts of Vienna in the 17th century. Essentially what Serbs are commemorating is a myth that has been advanced by Serbian literature.

I don't know why such a proud people, such as Croatians are, don't commemorate any of these major historical victories,,, maybe because there are no such dates for Croatia to celebrate, because there was no such kingdom or empire in the first place, wasn't the region of Croatia always just part of a foreign empire?
    That's why Croatia loved Hitler, he gave birth to their independence, they were a nation for the first time in their history, a fascist Nazi state that exterminated hundreds of thousands of civilians within the borders of their first official legitimate independent state. But that's all history, nothing you could be proud of, otherwise Croatia would be celebrating instead of laying wreaths at the site of their state sanctioned death camps.

  36. It is not celebrating a loss, but a commemoration of a noble battle against significantly larger forces and remembering the dark centuries that followed as third a class, persecuted (particularly for their religion) and suppressed people within the Ottoman empire.

    It was technically a draw. Ottoman forces suffered heavy losses and withdrew, returning years later. It is arguable that this delay gave the rest of Europe time and notice to preparewhere they were held on at the Gates of Vienna. The Serbs suffered such massive losses of men that when the Ottomans did return, they simply did not have enough manpower to resist effectively. The Ottomans, much larger by population did not have this problem.

    A similar argument can be made when Hitler ordered the immediate invasion of Yugoslavia in a massive fit of rage. Barbarossa had been originally planned for May 15 at the earliest due to the usual spring floods which that year came late, and delayed to June 22 at the very latest. Hitler knew that Napoleon's late attacking of Russia was his undoing. Barbarossa was delayed by six critical weeks in part due to the weather and in part due to the large number of tanks used needed to be refitted and poor Balkans infrastructure. German historians estimate that the Yugoslav invasion may have been delayed Barbarossa by up to three weeks. It may not seem like much, but it removed Barbarossa's time buffer for other failings (i.e. German strategic blunders).

  39. The Turks suffered such heavy losses that it slowed them down and many say stopped their take over of the rest of Europe.

    Really ?! I guess that's why the Ottoman Empire achieved its greatest successes in Europe after the 14th century...

    this is really interesting, i thought we came with the Ottomans :-)

    Nikolle! Funny:) Apparently Albanians came from the Turks, according to another troll its the Italians, according to another troll its the Caucus mountains.... Its 2013! One would think if ANY of this was true that it would be a fact agreed up[on by everyone. Unfortunately for the Serbian folk story tellers its all untrue. Everyone knows that the Albanians originated from the Balkans and they are descended from the Illyrians. Educate yourselves!! [link]

    Kosova is FREE!!! Long live Kosova!!

    Yes, Dragane, I'm familiar with the comical, and demonstrably untrue, stories Serbian nationalists love telling each other. That was the point of my post :)

  44. Happy Vidovdan to all, even to the resident self-hating Serb Danilo. Danilo obviously does not know what a 'Pyrrhic Victory' is. Look it up genius. The Turks suffered such heavy losses that it slowed them down and many say stopped their take over of the rest of Europe. You're an ignoramus and a tool, and really I don't get why you don't move your business to Zagreb or Tirana?? Oh, is it because you love to exploit cheap labour while spitting on the very people who are putting food on your table? Yeah, that's very noble of you, you immoral jerk-off. You're just a bad person, period. No wonder you can't get laid.

    As for Danilo's brother in arms, Lenard, the historical revisionist who obviously got his educations from some Zagreb institution...lol. Yes Lenard, it's true that there were albanians who fought on the Serb side in 1389, but they were so miniscule in number, that they were insignificant! Furthermore, they all converted to islam and were loyal lapdog servants to the Turks, just like they were to Hitler, and just like your people were to Austria-Hungary, and to Hitler (and still are).
    Cheers!!

  47. I don't quite understand the serbs. Firstly, the battle of Kosovo was fought by ALL Balkan christians, not just serbs. Second, why are serbs the only people in this world that celebrates losses?

    It's a key piece of Serbia narcissistic pathology.

    Serbia is so important. It saved Europe from Islamisation. Without Serbia, there would be minarets on Notre Damme Cathedral in Paris.

    And they did this great service not by winning, mind you, but by losing.

    And NOW look at how they thank us! After all we did!!

  53. @Lenard

    You really are diagonally parked in a parallel universe aren't you.
    Albanian wholesale conversion to Islam kept the Turks at bay did it?
    Much like how you resisted Nazi Germany by forming an SS battalion I guess.

    Only an Albanian would claim the crown of thorns AND the thirty pieces of silver.

  55. Serbs you should invite the Croatians and Albanians. Who stood with you shoulder to shoulder at that battle against the thieving murdering pillaging raping gangs of Turks. The battle was a draw later Albanians and more Croatians carried the fight for centuries that finally wore out the Turks and led to their demise. Until you Orthodox peoples started fighting among you self's to spoils that gave the Turks a chance and a foot hold back in Europe not to bright as usual.
