But as I've said in the past, as your most trusted admirer in these forums (indeed I've made a lot of money from your teachings), I'll do everything possible to spread those teachings worldwide so everybody can see their immense value. I'm sure we'll succeed in that endeavor in this life or in the next one.

    Yes that right Kosova is the power house of Europe and its ability to sustain itself is even clear to the blind. Just keep on thinking like that if it makes you feel warm and cosy. But there are more cuts on the ways as the EU further tightens its belt.
    I have been saying that the west is on the way out since 2008 not 2011 and now it’s evident that even you can see (that’s if you area able to do that). Why do you think the west is crying over Crimea???? What because of freedom and democracy? No it’s because the Russians can now operate freely at Europe’s backdoor – why has Romania been crying to Brussels? It fears that the current regime will be toppled once Russia wants it to happen.

    The power structure is now changing very fast. The stupid Australian Government decided to put sanctions on Russia so Moscow now has banned the import of all meat products from Australia. You shoul;d have seen the Minister’s face when he announced Moscow’s ban.

    While Serbs are getting beat up, harassed and their property damaged its fine, but when a Serb suggests retaliation then she/he is a Nazi. Nice does not pay in the long run as nearly 1 million dead Serbs (WW2) prove that theory.
    Why would Serbs establish camps? Its much easier to move the Albanians to Albania and let them prosper in their country not Serbia’s land.
    The Germans are masters of nothing any more. Ask little Angela why she refused to endorse any more sanctions against Russia? The west’s time is OVER.
    Out of 4.2 million people in Croatia 200 000 are other ethnic groups, while there are 4 million Croats and about 50 000 are not Ustashi while the rest and Josipovic are just that. To the Croats all I can say if they don’t settle this refugee business quickly what’s coming is a total dismemberment of Croatia with Istria, Dalmatia and other parts going their way – it’s already started. These Croat clowns hate Serbs but beg RS in Bosnia to protect them, in fact at one stage they even asked to join with RS – can anyone imagine this?
    For too long Serbs have been nice and carried Croats. Slovenes, Macedonians and Bosniaks on their backs and all they ever got was a knife in their back.

    As a prognosticator you would starve, but as a funny propagandist you at least make me laugh.
    Let’s put this into perspective. Joining sanctions is being pushed by the United States of Windbags whose mouth is bigger than reality on the ground. The Serbian people will never agree to this as they are not like Albanians who are a weak-willed people.
    It’s more a dilemma for politicians in Belgrade because they fear that they will not get paid if they don’t obey a de-flunked master who raves, rants and like Adolph in his last days as Germany’s leader “moves divisions” that have long surrendered.
    No its not going to happen. By the way it was not Putin that called Obama, as Washington likes to brag, but the other way around since sanctions are not working and most of the EU will go no further on that ground.

    Yes, indeed, dear... All Russia has to do is throw some bones (like the above) and the Serbs will immediately consider Russia as "brother".

    However, when time comes for action, Russia could not care less about the interests of the Serb "brothers"... there are plenty of examples:

    - Russia did not veto UNSCR 1244 despite the pleadings of the Serb brothers;
    - Russia withdrew its soldiers from Kosovo when Vladimir came to power, instead of protecting the Serbs there whom, we're told, suffer every day from Albanians killing, torturing, raping, mutilating them;
    - Russia supports Serbia with words, but when it comes to actions, Russia supports Kosovo's cause, instead (see Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine now).

    An independence referendum was held in Kosovo September 1991 over the objection of the Serbian government.

    Following the vote, the Assembly of Kosovo. which was still functioning at that time, declared Kosova a sovereign and independent state. No country took any notice at that time as they were concentrating on the issue of recognition of "the constituent republics". The status of the province of Serbia was not even on the table.

    Over 99% of voters voted in favour of independence, with a turnout of 87%.[1] The referendum was boycotted by Serbs living in the region, who comprised around 10% of the population.[1]

  32. I won't go as far as to say Russians are our brothers. Russians, as in everyday people, sure. I think Russians view Serbia very favorably and are for helping them and vice versa. During the 1999 NATO bombing Russian citizens overwhelmingly supported Serbia in ways they could. Not militarily obviously, although some Russian volunteer fighters came to help. Many just offered support, some sent money, clothing, food, etc...some were even for Russian intervention.

    Are Russians our brothers politically? Politics is a dirty word, and while politically the 2 countries are close I wouldn't call it brotherhood. Politically, you can always have an instance where certain interests deviate from 'brotherhood'.

    If I were Serbia, I would tell them to go pound sand on the sanctions. Under NO TERMS will it ever be allowed. Serbia would have to be crazy to ever agree to it. It's like a gestapo, I don't like them so you don't like them or I will punish you. I would feel the same if Russia told Serbia to impose sanctions on the US/EU. Why should Serbia's economy suffer? Why should they be an even bigger lap dog?

Be sure nothing is wiped off in our memories despite CNN and it’s fifth columns in all countries. They can buy the elites but they cannot buy our peoples.

    Serbia will be raped day after day as soon as you yield to their pressure. I think EU is bluffing and it’s time for Serbia to put terms. If only you hint on the Custom’s Union Brussels will be in panic. Then you will see that very often ultimatums in diplomacy are just the last demands before the first concessions. Serbia is the only state in Europe the Russians feel shame and response. All because we afforded to be colonized in 1999 and were unable to help you. In Europe Serbians and Montenegrins are the friendliest people for us and the Russians know it very well. Despite the us fed monteegrin otporian jukans I believe you are one people.

  43. Serbia is expected to show 'character' by taking a stance on this subject.Only it can't afford to do so.
    If it decides to show support for Putin then by doing so it indirectly ackowledges the unilateral declaration of independence by Kosovo and will jeopordize its short term chances of becoming a fully fledged EU member and possibly a lot more.
    Should it show empathy for the situation in Ukraine then you can bet your life that Putin will be disappointed and the historical ties between Serbia and Russia will receive a severe, and maybe even an irreparable, blow.
    This is a testing moment for Vučić and his newly formed government and a decision either way will have severe consequenses.
    It is time to keep our heads cool and to avoid the temptation into making rash decisions just because the pressure is on.
    It may pay to take a page out of Tito's book and keep a neutral position by offering to negotiate between the two sides.

  46. Any hopes that the EU will tollerate anything else are illusionary. Make up your mind, and that also includes dropping any demands on Kosovo, and finally face reality.

  48. Russian brothers? Funny! You could see how Russia treats their 'orthodox brothers' in Ukraine.

    Commie, Russia is protecting its Orthodox brothers in Ukraine and prepared to intervene militarily to prevent those EU/US backed far-right extremists, who are Catholics, from ceasing Russian friendly regions.

    As for international law, sovereignty and what not, do you think Serbians have a belief in that after the US/EU and NATO disregarded it in 1999 during its aggression against Serbia? As for Russia's support for Serbia, it is still there regardless of its actions in Crimea and there is no reason for that to change. If you checked the votes at the UN last night, you can see the BRICS are supporting Russia and it is not isolated.

    As is normal with the EU and US, they have to apply pressure, blackmail and threats against smaller nations to get compliance, which is against their natural will.

    The reality is joining the European Union automatically means any laws the Serbian government makes regarding domestic economy can easily be thwarted by unelected central institutions in Brussels. At a time when the UK is on its way out, and millions of people all throughout the EU want the same, it is literally insane for Serbia to want to join now.

    You talk about outflow of capital, but this is exactly what's been happening in southern Europe. The EUro prison for southern Europe has led to economic catastrophe in places such as Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal etc.

    Because the reality is this: the EU is taking steps to become a much more integrated union in all aspects. But such an extensive union with advanced economies such as Germany's, will NEVER work out with the economies of southern and eastern Europe. It's impossible to have all these countries which are in different positions within the economic cycle, and to tie them all together with one interest rate, one economic and financial policy, one currency etc.

    The worst part of all of this, the EU will never accept Serbia in a billion years. It's so beyond the realm of possibility and as long as Serbia continues to sacrifice itself to join this outdated, antidemocratic union, it will never see prosperity.

  50. Support Russia - the country that suppressed Eastern Europe for years.

    Support Russia - the country that invaded its "brother" Ukrainian's territory.

    Support Russia - the country Tito kept at arms length.

    Support Russia - the country where revolution is the usual route to democratic change.

    Support Russia - it has an ailing economy and needs your brotherly support.

    Russian brothers? Funny! You could see how Russia treats their 'orthodox brothers' in Ukraine. The simple truth is: Russia under Putin is lead by strategic interests, and not by friendship or special care for people. It's not different to the USA, though some people seem to believe that.

    Even the Russian support of Serbia in the Kosovo case you can forget about now that Russia officially took the stand that the will of the population is more important than international law, bilateral treaties, sovereignty of countries and invulnerability of existing borders.

  52. Unfortunately, the Serbian politicians will succumb to the US/EU. We just do not have anyone with guts. The Russians want to make us an energy hub, they have given us I believe, 2 billion in loans, we have access to any military equipment we want, all in all, we have Russian support. What did we receive from the EU/US? A bombing to oblivion. They have taken Kosovo away from us and are looking forward to dismantling Serbia totally. Yet, the corrupt cowards will give in at the demise of the nation. If it comes to destroying Serbia at gunpoint, then just invite the Russian in. I am positive they would just love to set up a few bases in Serbia.

  53. "These are people who have no idea how economics works, and believe that governments (and in this case foreign governments) will create wealth and success in Serbia. They need to arrive to the 21st century."
    (Ari Gold, 28 March 2014 11:23)

    Then, please enlighten us readers how 'economic works'? From my point of view, it works like that: Companies go and invest in countries where they find preferable conditions, which can be various things: (Low) taxes, educated workforce, good infrastructure, strategic position/location, low corruption and so on. But what is important most is reliability, continuity in politics and safety of investments. Guess why there's a huge outflow of capital from Russia now: Because after Putin's Russia started to steal Ukrainian property and companies or block their production, nobody can feel safe in this country.

    Regarding Serbia: Joining the EU itself won't make Serbia prosper, but fulfilling the requirements and adopting to basic standards and rules will help the economy for sure.

  55. I would rather be BOMBED again than do that to my Russian brothers. If Vucic values his career, he will not go against the will of 99% of Serbs. It's no secret that the west eliminated all anti western politicians and that the current government are tightly under their control, but everything has it's limits. Russia is the only country who would save Serbia in a LIFE or DEATH situation as it has proven in its past. Serbia would not exist today if Russia did not intervene militarily when it's survival was on the line. Bomb us! We won't turn on Russia. Not ever! If they do, their political careers will be short lived.

    willi, how can we make up out minds when the EU is split? Not even Germany wants sanctions imposed on Russia. Not all EU members recognise "Kosovahhh"*. Get your act in order before demanding things from others.

    Russians are our brothers and you have to accept that. If that's not good enough to join the EU, then stop forcing Serbia into the axis, and yes you are forcing us.

    If we attempted not to join, we would get another Otpor type of revolution just like we saw in the Ukraine when their president rejected closer ties to the EU. You have blood on your hands and you can't accept Russia protecting those people who reject your fascism.

    Who really wants to join this dictatorship? Even the UK is being denied a referendum because if it ever came to one, everyone knows the British would exit. This Serbian government is under occupation and in time, we will be liberated.

    You're completely right. Serbia should take a stand. Why join a union that will cripple Serbia economically. The EU is one giant failure and the only people who are keeping it afloat are the German tax payers. This will become overwhelming even for the German economy to manage because a common union between advanced northern European economies and impoverished eastern and southern Europe will NEVER work.

    So of course Serbia should say no to the EU. It doesn't make sense economically. And politically, all we have are the same blood thirsty, warmongering Germans who are repaying their Nazi allies (Albanians, Croats and Bosnians) for their unwavering loyalty in WWII.

  60. Serbia can't have it both ways. It has to make up its mind which way it wants to go. Serbia has to prove to the West now that it wants to be part of it, and that also means that it supports what the rest of the EU is doing. If it fails to do so, the negotiations might as well be stopped right now, because the EU will remember that for a very long time, and any hopes to become a member of the EU by 2020 might as well be forgotten. if you want to be part of the EU, you have to also support their policy. Any hopes that the EU will tollerate anything else are illusionary. Make up your mind, and that also includes dropping any demands on Kosovo, and finally face reality.

  63. This should come to no surprise. The EU is running out of conditions for Serbia. They are surprised at how low the Serbian gov't continues to stoop and are finding themselves having to think of new conditions because obviously the EU does not intend for Serbia to ever join its club.

    As much of a blessing in disguise that is, (economically, the EU would further ruin Serbia) there are still a handful of Serbs in Serbia who are so blind to the reality on the ground that they will continue to support appeasement because they are convinced this is somehow linked to a path of prosperity.

    These are people who have no idea how economics works, and believe that governments (and in this case foreign governments) will create wealth and success in Serbia. They need to arrive to the 21st century.
