1. Albanians are a very simple people and with groups like that you have to repeat the message over and over again so it sinks in – hey I’ve been telling you guys that the US is not going to recover since the big drop of 2008 and I have yet to be proven wrong.

    I'm sure Kosovo really appreciates your concern for their well being. Based on the news above, I'm sure that tomorrow Kosovo will immediately decide to go back under Serbia because only an economic powerhouse like Serbia will be able to save Kosovo from the calamity you described above. It's really inspiring to see such a caring and altruistic person as you sj.

  2. "I loved the White House press release over the weekend boasting that NASA’s life will be extended until 2024 – are alarm bells ringing yet??? The pride and joy of the US and they are only extending it for a decade. Poor old John F. Kennedy must be spinning in his grave.

    Read it again. NASA is not going anywhere. The life of the International Space Station was extended.

    Whether you believe my heritage is of no consequence. My fascination with the area comes from my position in Kosovo from 2006 to 2009. When I was first asked to take a position there I read up on the history of events. My immediate view was that somehow Kosovo and Serbia must be reunited inorder for either to survive, it did not take me long on the ground to see that as an impossibility. Dayton was a mistake and anything close to that would be disaster for both Kosovo and Serbia. I am a supporter of Kosovo independence and I made many friends there. While I support the Albanian people on their quest I hold no ill will for Serbs or Serbia. I do though have a strong distaste for people who use lies and falsehoods to advance an agenda of ethnic hatred.
    B92 has the option to stop posting any views that are contrary to your own but I do not see them doing that as it become a Serb only news site, why go through the trouble of printing in English if all they want is Serbs to read it.
    As far as NASA it is a different world totally from 1958 when the idea for space exploration was launched. Who knows in 10 years what direction we will take.
    You read things in the paper and attempt to present them as your revelations like no one has heard that, it would be more appropriate for you to do that on the Serbian site so that you have a chance to catch people who do not have access to the same news you do.

    That’s very interesting. You now claim to be part Cherokee while the rest of your family does not come from Eastern Europe.
    Why would someone with no connections to that region bother to post so much about a place like Kosovo or Albanians? Your about Cherokee as I am an Eskimo.
    On the issue of “US demise’” its only pointing out the start of enormous budget cuts which will continue in the long foreseeable future that’s all. To make a statement like “we have extended the life of NSA for another decade” would have been unheard of in the 1970s. If you asked politicians then how long NASA would last, the answer would have been “FOREVER”.
    “10 years would be an indicator to the opposite” all this means cuts are taking place somewhere else.
    The last time I looked B92 is a SERBIAN –based media outlet so what are you doing on it? I don’t post on Albanians sites (as if they have one).
    Albanians are a very simple people and with groups like that you have to repeat the message over and over again so it sinks in – hey I’ve been telling you guys that the US is not going to recover since the big drop of 2008 and I have yet to be proven wrong. Oh I forgot I believe your government is about to announce that unemployment is down to 6% - Do you know how they will achieve this? Easy when you have 26% you cross out the 2 and presto just like magic.

    Loved the answer, true to the end of how you try to confuse the subject. As far as my ancestry, most all Americans are descended from immigrants as it is relatively a new country by European standards. However, my ancestry goes back quite a ways as I had a great great grandmother who was Cherokee Indian which actually makes me part of native American and none of my family tree as far back as traceable is from the Eastern Europe region, of course in the belief of Christianity we all come from the same family.
    As far as NASA and your questions, to the ignorant at heart it may be valid but for people understand American politics understand that agencies such as NASA do not get indefinite funding they have to every few years receive extensions as it has several times in the past.
    It was started under the Eisenhower administration and not Kennedy, your confusion may come from the name of the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral which was named after our assassinated President.
    So if you are looking for indicators of the US demise, this is not one, actually the fact that they are still funding space exploration for another 10 years would be an indicator to the opposite.
    Back on subject, apparently what Albanians believe and do not believe does consume a huge part of your life as you write about it numerous times however, it seems that the Serb politicians are the ones playing to a naïve crowd.

    The last thought on my mind is what Albanians believe or disbelieve. I was born in Australia and have relatives that go back to 1788 whereas you migrated to the US and are now more American than George Washington.
    If you had the Ahtisaari Plan, as you seem to claim, you would never post on B92 – it would be fait accompli and no need to talk about it at all, but that is not the case. Sadly, Albanians are easily fooled as Thaci has proven time and time again.
    I see that once again the US economy is flat lining and that’s even in December when thousands of part time workers are usually put on to deal with the holiday shopping season. It’s not a good sign, especially since the OECD forecasts the EU’s economy will get worse in 2014 and you think that Albanians are going to get an overall better deal??? LOLs
    I loved the White House press release over the weekend boasting that NASA’s life will be extended until 2024 – are alarm bells ringing yet??? The pride and joy of the US and they are only extending it for a decade. Poor old John F. Kennedy must be spinning in his grave.

  7. How easily these Albos are misled. Remember not everything that flies in the sky is edible.

    There is a big dilemma here sj, Do the Albanians believe what is printed in a Serbian news site that Serbian politicians are claiming (not Pristina) or do they believe an Aussie immigrant that does not even know what the Ahtisaari Plan is?
    I am sure you have a few Serbs hanging on your words but that is it, and you claim the Albanians are naïve.

  8. Before the Albos start wetting themselves over who signed on what paper, taken a nice deep breath as this is not finished yet by a long shot. This is yet to be ironed out, but for the record there were no symbols on any paper – it’s all Pristina’s BS. Sad to disappoint you lads, but it’s true.

  9. It is well to overcome the objections that are four Serbian municipalities in Kosovo constituted a major step towards creating the conditions for greater security of Serbs and start stabilizing the north of Kosovo and more involvement in creating the conditions for economic survival of Serbs in the territory.

  10. Asked whether the statements they signed had "any symbols of Kosovo's statehood, " Vlajić said that there were no symbols at all, adding that the upper part of the statement was covered with a sticker so it was impossible to see what was beneath it.

    If this is true, this 'Kosovo' and the never ending idiotic stories could be a blueprint for a Hollywood comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen (Borat) would be the perfect character to play crime minister Thaci!

    Let's imagine: In the beginning, all the politicians sing the national anthem 'Gangsters paradise' in front of a blue-yellow flag with some dozen of $$ coins on it.

  11. Tanjug report is a lie then. The papers do have the republic of Kosovo symbols but they were covered for Serbs but not Albanians so all the Serbs know they signed republic of Kosovo documents! So all of these Serbs that signed have recognized Kosovo independence. And all the Serbs hat voted voted on republic of Kosovo central election commission ballots!

  12. This cowboys playing with their own peoples votes-was it Pantic who is been elected or was the people elected Pantic? Is how he decides or is people who decide to vote according to the laws of local governing??
    Poor people who have they got to do with.
    This is personal conflict between cowboys, drug dealers previously supported by Serbian government.

    I really feel sorry for this people in North Kosovo - completely mentally sick people would not behave like this?
    Pepper covered with plastic handed to Serbs? To other was pepper with the Kosovo state logo and.... You are status neutral?? But at the end they hit the office for Pantic he should not be there any way.
    Good luck.
