    No, sure what that means and I'm not sure even you know that means. So, let's clarify it a bit. If a heroin trafficker walks around in Mitrovica, what happens to him? Is he arrested by the policy or he is lynched by a mob?

  2. we're not talking mere corruption, Ari. We're talking about the planned, wholesale robbery of Serbs by Serbs under the cover of patriotism. We're talk about close to a billion euros/year with less than the tiniest crumb going to where it's ostensibly intended.

    There isn't a place where corruption is non-existent. The presence of government in too many sectors is a sure-fire way to create conditions for corruption. Because a budget must be allocated to preserve the existence of Serbs in Kosovo-Metohija, there are opportunists who try to pocket the money. But yes, if you compare north Ibar corruption i.e squandering gov't funds and you compare the south-terrorism, sex slave trafficking, heroin trafficking, organ harvesting, rape, terrorism... it's really no comparison, unless you are a complete racist or in your case (if you really are Serb), a case of self-hatred. I'm sorry you hate yourself that you cannot see the hypocrisy in comparing the two.

  5. After reading some of these comments that have an anti-Albanian theme to them it makes me less apologetic for not wanting to treat non-Albanians who I lack interest in the exact way I'm meant to treat Albanians who are or who can be of interest to me.

    Why do I get this nagging feeling that some anti-Albanians think highly of "Uncle Tom" Albanian males and "Aunt Jemima" Albanian females so allow me to explain those terms...

    The term "Uncle Tom" was named after a character or fictious character in the 19th century American novel Uncle Tom's Cabin but to get to the point it's an American or African-American slang term for a black male who would do anything do be in good "standing" with non-blacks (at least white folks)even if it means betraying his own race.An "Aunt Jemima" is considered the black female version of an "Uncle Tom" and is named after an American breakfast food manufacturer called Aunt Jemima.

    So therefore an "Uncle Tom" Albanian (if there's such a fellow)would be an Albanian male who wants to have good standing with non-Albanians or certain non-Albanians even if he is "selling out" his compatriots and you guessed it correctly that an Aunt Jemima" Albanian ( if there exists such a person) would be the Albanian female version of an "Uncle Tom" Albanian.Finally I'm sorry if there're Albanians who don't like those terms however I'm not sorry for criticizing Albanians who might not "be there" if their innocent compatriots need them if you know what I mean.

    Ari sometimes you are just a hoot. look at maps of drug trafficking routes in the Balkans and you will see that nearly all that go through Kosovo either come from Serbia or exit into Serbia. Kosovo is not a source of drugs but only a transit country among dozens in a route going from either Afghanistan, Turkey, Russia or others. to places in Europe.
    As far as Albanian mafia versus Serbian mafia, the numbers are very close in international figures, elevated in Serbian and Russian sources. With sometimes Albanian being higher in crimes and terror than Serbia and sometimes lower, but always close.

    Organ trafficking, if you are talking during the 90's that is pretty much debunked to either nonexistent or a very low number, and is only being kept alive by desperate Serbs hoping to someday fool the world into thinking the scourge in Kosovo was justified, but the world is not that stupid.
    If you are talking about the Medicus case it was something that was allowed to start under the UN administration but was quickly shut down with the arrival of EULEX. In any international study, Kosovo is not listed as a big player in either organ trafficking.
    Organized crime, Thaci is probably closely if not highly involved yes, but do you really think the Serbian officials are not? With the limited censored press there is still enough smoke getting through to show there is a fire somewhere.

  9. government-connected Serbian criminals use the lawless state in Northern Kosovo to steal ridiculous money from the Serbian state.
    (Danilo, 1 December 2014 09:33)

    Absolutely. Opportunists of the Serbian Government in Mitrovica used money that was meant for the Serbian community in Kosovo-Metohija for their own benefit.

    But south of the Ibar, we are talking about crimes committed on an epic, wholesale proportion. It is an indisputable fact that some of Europes most lucrative drug routes run through Kosovo-Metohija, that sex-slave trafficking is more rampant there than in the rest of the Balkans and where non-Albanians are literally open-season with no safety or basic human rights.

    Then there's the whole organ trafficking thing. But the rise in the level of support for Jihadist organizations like ISIS is one of the most striking. Over 500 and that's reported by Pristina media. These lunatics will no doubt come back.

    Have a few look at the following links regarding where the Albanian community stands in regards to terrorism, drugs, rape and see if its even comparable to one or two opportunists taking advantage of the national budget that's allocated for Serbs in Kosovo-Metohija.

  12. If you look through history books and what is still happening around the world then you understand why the Balkans is referred as "Powder keg".

    It`s no coincidence that Serbs claimed Kosovo "our Jerusalem". It reflects the reality, that Balkan is Middle East, not Europe.

    Every country in Europe has had "teritorial losses". Most of them are much much bigger and much much richer provinces than Kosovo, but no one is so stupid to start a war for it.

    Serbs claim that they have their history in Kosovo. Well tell that to Poland when they lost Lvov (Lviv). The city when all Polish Kings used to be crowned. Or tell that to Germany when they lost East Prussia. Or Italy the Savoy and Nice, the place where Garibaldi was born. Or what about Constantinople?

    The other serb claim is that in the Middle Ages (in which they and all the Balkans still live) they were the majority in Kosovo.

    Well then tell Russia to "withdrawl" from Piter, which they conqured 300 hundred years ago. And to return to their landlock country which they were before the conquests of Peter the Great.

    Lesson no. One: Things change.

    Lesson no. Two: Get used to it.

    Lesson no. Three: There is time for everything, a time to fight and a time to make peace (Ecclesiastes).

    For decades all we have done is to make life a living hell for each other, and so we all lived in a living hell.

    Perhaps we should try to make life easier for the ourselves, so we all would breath easy?

    If the already well-off EU officers of the court who swore to uphold the law and who risked their highly schooled careers, reputations, and their families' pride couldn't resist small cash bribes from the narco terrorists, can someone explain to me how this clan-based bunch of poor and immoral cavemen who have total disrespect for the rule of law will turn down large sums of $ bribes, or threatening orders from the clan elders and the "former" narco terrorists that are in the government?
    Whoever is responsible for playing this cruel joke and experiment at the expense of the Orthodox people in the Balkans should look at their past experiments and performances in numbers of innocent lives lost and the damage done to the environment and all the presently living--including the yet unborn.
    It appears to me that the ones that wove this web of evil from the beginning are all tangled up in it and lost.

In Presevo, in Macedonia in Mitrovica 2011. Lose, lose, lose.

    And the only thing you can do? Assault pensioners or 14 year old girls who live in the south Ibar ethnic ghettos because you cannot handle a fair armed conflict. Even in Mitrovica, I mean their own state is against them, and still the Serbs of this region have chased you out every time you have tried to invade.

    Today, the tough Albanian warriors cannot walk around Mitrovica without being less than 20 feet from a Austrian or German member of KFOR.
