  2. USA is responsible for that democratic system you have today in most EU including Greece (what's left of it).
    (Brandon, 29 March 2014 13:42)

    The US once had ideals, all those left in 1908, then in again 1915 or was it 1917. No one disputes the innovation, but I think your confusing CAPITALISM with Democracy. India has an older Democracy, Greece pioneered democracy... The Native peoples of North America had democracy..prior to the white man. If you honestly think you have democracy in the US now, the government got exactly what they wanted.

  3. Greece was a third world country until entered EU.I still remember a Greece volleyball team members, buying all they could in my neighborhood grocery store.It was in the 70's.
    You had a bloody civil war, between your fascist Generals and the communists. In the end the communists won, and set up a government of corruption responsible for the condition Greece is today. You have only sucked billions from the West, yet blame it for your inability to govern. And please refrain from name calling, and racial prejudice. It makes you fill better, but it doesn't solve your problems.Also, save me from pointing out how poor Albania is.I know, I grew up there. 50 years of communism would do that to a nation,especially if it was divided in half previously. What is Greece excuse? You are ungrateful and self-righteous, therefore can not recognise who helped you in times of need. You talk against NATO, yet are still part of it. Talk against EU,yet continue to be in it. So do us a favor and shut up. NATO attacked Yugoslavia and Greece was part of it then, and continues today. Stop playing both sides and make a stand, for a change.

  4. Theft of Ukrainian gold? Funny. There must be billions worth of gold in Ukraine, we all know that this country one of the richest and prosperous in the world. But talking about 'theft'. One of the first things Russia did after annexing Crimea was claiming the gas fields in the black sea belonging to Ukraine.

    I am talking about Ukraine's gold taken away on the 16th of March and flown to US FR vaults.Puppet Yatsenyuk had to bend in front of the IMF banksters in order to get his loans.Any nation going begging to IMF gangsters for loans is tricked into accepting credit created by strokes of keys on a keyboard and in return they lose their gold.The gold will never be returned back to the people of Ukraine, for it is being used as collateral for Ukraine’s phony debt to the private banking industry.If you don't believe me ask Germany what happens to gold that disappears
    into America’s Federal Reserve vaults? It actually does disappear.

  5. When the western allies say something - they want you to believe that it is the truth. When others disagree with them - they manipulate the people into believing that it is propaganda.

    I am not surprised by your comment,ignorance is the Albanian national sport.Democracy in Greece was secured by the blood and sacrifice of 700000 Greeks who lost their lives in world war II.The US is responsible though for installing a military dictatorship in Greece(thousands of people were interned in prisons for their political beliefs) and also responsible for organizing and executing the Turkish invasion in Cyprus resulting to 250000 Greek refugees(read wikileaks and Snowden cables).

  10. One news went unnoticed and concerns the crisis in Ukraine. Nigeria withdrew its recognition of Kosovo because of the delicate situation in their own country.

  11. Come on Reader! You're reading children stories. The Yanks don't think with their heads, they think with their weapons. America is controlled by the wealthy and the poor just get poorer. If the Yanks can pull it off, Kosovo will be part of Albania. They'd say YES to any takeover if they could get a piece of the action. Come on Yanks, you'd like some part of the Crimea too.

  15. So if the US and NATO have recognized Kosovo, and if you split off against the Constitution of Serbia, which is the difference that Crimea will be separated from the Ukraina???
    Kosovo has a desire for Albania and the Crimea to Russia, quite simply!!!

  16. Russian President Vladimir Putin told the Serbian leadership that if they succumb to pressure from the EU to ask Belgrade to immediately repay the debt of close to one billion euros for Russian gas, but also to compensate for the damage that Russia has suffered due to delay work on the South Stream.
    These are what you call "brothers"! Shame on them.
    Serbia is facing ultimatum from everywhere!!!! Poor small Serbia wants to live in peace, why don't you leave it alone?!

  17. Sometimes hard to read all this nonsense here.

    1. There was no referendum about an independent Kosovo
    2. There was an UDI, but not be parliament, but by some-self-proclaimed group called 'people of Kosovo'
    3. Russia hasn't been 'part of the negotiations' and the UDI was not an 'UN led process', but, as the name says, a unilateral declaration.
    4. The ICJ ruled that the UDI was not violating international law, because there is no international law about UDIs, and an UDI doesn't mean statehood.
    5. The ICJ ruled that the UDI was not against UN1244 exactly because the UDI was made by this self-proclaimed group mentioned above and NOT by the interim Kosovo administration (which was acting under UN1244 and would have violated it by an UDI)

    6. In Crimea, there was a referendum, but this referendum was not legal under Ukrainian law, because a referendum about splitting off a part of the territory must be held in the whole country.
    7. A referendum in Kosovo (and only Kosovo) would be against Serbian law, and would have been against YU laws
    8. Unlike other YU republics, Kosovo had no option to leave the federation.
    9. Russia thinks that by removing insignia from the uniforms of it's soldiers, it was not an invasion and military act.
    10. Russia violated the bilateral Budapest treaty which guaranteed territorial integrity to Ukraine

  18. Russians astonished. REALLY? Ukraine gave up its nuclear arsenal in a deal they made with Russia and the West, in return they guaranteed Ukraine's independence and territorial integrity. Today we know Moscow’s promises are valueless. No wonder Poland and Baltic states have began arming themselves. They found out how much Russians can be trusted. Can't blame them. EU should open its eyes before it's too late.

  19. Really?The russians are astonished? Russia was part of all the negotiations and had a voice in the UN led process of Kosovo's independence.There was not international or UN process for Krimea.There was a pure annexation of a territory that is only 58% inhabited by russians.

  20. UN backed, Reader? Why then doesn't Kosovo have a seat in the UN? Face it, the UDI violates the UN Charter, Helsinki Accords and the Serbian Constitution in addition to UNSC R-1244 as it gurantees FRY's (Serbia) sovereignty and territorial integrity. And, unlike the ICJ, that's not an opinon, its a fact.

  21. Has Obama got any moral authority to accuse Russia or any other country in the world for wrong doings? The biggest menace to the international community since world war II is the United States of America. No other country can come close to the number of kills/murder of innocent civilians as the USA. He should’ve been utterly ashamed for comparing the Crimea with Iraq. In the former there was hardly any deaths whereas in the latter there were more than 1miilion people deaths and 7 million displaced-not to mention the fact the country has been bombed with phosphorous munitions into stone age.
    With regard to Ukraine it’s well documented Obama paid 5 billion USD to undermine the country, then he send his CIA snipers to organise the killing of both protesters and police,organize and execute the fascist coup in Kiev and then organize and execute the theft of Ukrainian gold(for safe keeping, fancy that).
    Obama with his daily childish taunts looks more out of his depth than normal.He just has to face the fact that he got a bloody nose when taking someone its own size this time.

  23. Kosovo's declaration of independence is in full accordance with UN resolution 1244, signed by Russia, and thus it is UN backed. This was established by the ICJ, a UN institution beyond any doubt, and thus it is UN based.
    The only thing that is incorrect is the word referendum, but the parliament voted unanimously. If there had been a referendum the result would have been the same. This is similar to criticizing people for small typos when there is nothing to say about the content. Sort of: "that comma does not belong there, therefore what you are saying is wrong!".
    To do things like Russia however, Kosovo should hold a referendum to join Albania! That will fix things.

  24. When you're addressing an audience who can barely remember what happened last year let alone what happened in some forgetful place in the Balkans in 2008, you can make up whatever crap you want. I'm sure Obama was just reciting what his speech-writers wrote. But then again, he represents the same government that said ”You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext,” with an apparently straight face.
