    If Albos are not in charge then who is? You mean Albos declared independence but they are not in charge. Then what do you have? Nothing? Is that why your Albanians are leaving Kosova in large numbers?
    The so called Ahtissaari plan had the Albanians in charge, but in this new agreement it’s the tail wagging the dog i.e. in designing a horse a committee came up with a camel. You can tell yourself anything you like, but the EU’s plan is to get Belgrade to allow your Albanians to look for work in Serbia proper and to do that they are making many concessions to Serbs.
    If you talk about honouring the agreement its Pristina that constantly balks at honouring it not the Serbs.

    Never said Albanians were in charge, only that they were given their terms in 2008, now Serbia is given theirs. If you think either Albanian or Serbian PMs are actively participating in talks or negotiations you are not very smart. They are given what they must agree to and then time is spent trying to tweak it to where they can each go back and tell their respective groups how they won.
    But you cannot name one thing that has come out of the Brussels agreement that was not covered in Ahtissaari and already agreed to by Kosovo prior to UDI. The thing is now they have to honor that agreement. Before they did not have to worry because Serbs would not agree to participate.

    If what you write is the case then that would mean that the Albos are completely in charge and if so all of these problems should never surface. Then why is this going on?
    If EU is the prize then why hasn’t Serbia recognised the goat herders in Kosvoa LOL.
    Is it any wonder that NATO dropped bombs everywhere in Kosovo and still to this day has not cleaned up the depleted uranium?

  4. "Serbs want "strong community of municipalities""

    Of course, I think it makes perfect sense for a "community of municipalities", i.e. some sort of a province, region, or whatever to deal with services which are dealt better at a regional level vs a municipal level. It happens in almost all countries. The only thing is that any municipalities in Kosovo should be allowed to do this.
    ----------

    "Councilors from ten Serb municipalities have adopted "a decision on united political action, protection of rights and realization of interests of Serbs." "

    This other one does not make any sense! Normally Councilors would care about the "protection of rights and realization of interests" of all residents of their municipalities, not just Serbs!!!

  5. Watch and learn. What Serbs ask for they get and Brussels tell Albanians to shut up.
    (sj, 20 March 2015 08:09
    You are so funny, what the Albanians give up at the table is nothing more than what they gave up in 2008 in return for western support for their UDI. The talks in Brussels has nothing to do with Albanians having to "compromise". It is about forcing the Serbs to their knees in exchange for some glimmer of hope they will become EU members. Serbs have gained nothing from the Albanians that was not promised to them in 2008.
    The talks that are in secret, are more about HOW the Serbs are going to present the terms to the people and have them accept it, not what the terms are.
    Apparently no matter how much a Serb travels the world, no matter how much outside education they receive, they will always have this inherent disability of never "being able to see the forest for the trees"
    Brussels is nothing more than getting the Serbs to eat their broccoli by telling them it is chocolate cake. Nothing more, nothing less.

  6. Ahtisaari plan also says that Serbia must allow Kosovo to be a member of UN.
    (Teodor Muzaka 1389, 20 March 2015 16:08
    Actually, Serbia is totally 100% impotent in that matter. It is not up to Serbia whether Kosovo joins or does not join the UN. They DO NOT in any way have the power to stop it.
    The only thing blocking Kosovo membership in the UN is Russia and that is not because of any so called Serbian alliance, it is because Russia was forced to put its tail between its legs and run out of Kosovo in 1999 and show the world how weak it was. It is a matter of Russia thumping their chest, now to show power. Unfortunately Kosovo is caught in a test of wills of Russia versus the west. Even if Serbia recognizes Kosovo as a free and independent state tomorrow, Russia will not give up the Chess game, unless they are beat down to the weak level of 1990s. I wonder how long oil at 50$ a barrel it will take?

    But don't feed the ego's of Serbs by letting them pretend they have power that they simply do not possess.

  7. I don't know where BA has been getting their info on the brusssels agreement. It's posted on this site. Everyone can read about it. Pristina Albanians appoint the Serbs police commander. Serbs really have no say. Because the commander must be appointed by pristina they dictate who the Serbs nominate. Otherwise no Serb commander! But even with a Serb commander they must have an Albanian deputy. Their is no executive legislative judicial power for anything that will be a "ZSO". It's a club, a caucus, a fraternity. There is nothing that gives it any legal power at all. It has no role in governing anything. It's made up of Municipalities that have power. All the municipalities laws on healthcare on education must be in line with pristina Albanian law. All Serbs decisions are subject to judicial review by Albanian judges. This is why Serbs have no power. Serbs are only the front for Albanian powers. All the decisions have to match Albanian laws. All Serb power in Kosovo is abolished by Brussels when brussels is completely implemented. The Serb judges and prosecutors and lawyers - if there are any- must pass republic of Kosovo bar exam very soon. Must know Albanian law on every issue. Must work to have Serbs comply with Albanians laws.

    That's right. And the ZSO is not claiming RS veto powers over life in Kosovo - only over matters pertaining to their own municipalities, which will be coordinated in an autonomous institution. Nothing as drastic as you say. Try actually reading up on ZSO.

    I am super curious to know what you've read that makes you believe this, because nowhere in the Brussels Agreement does any of this come out. Even the Albanians who try to spin it to their advantage aren't as extreme in their interpretations as you repeatedly try to be. You have any proof the rest of the world doesn't know or is this just your interpretation? :)

Albanians appoint Serb police commanders who have albanian deputies, Albanian judges ultimately decide all cases, all laws are decided by Albanians.

    (Demi, 19 March 2015 10:28)

    Well I have to congratulate the more extremist elements of your ethnicity for trying to chase all Serbs out of Kosovo as well. But Serbs, like Albanians, are annoyingly resilient SOBs and fight tooth and nail to stay in Kosovo if only for 5 minutes longer than the last member of the other who just left. So despite all your efforts at trying to expel an unwanted group of people in a statelet you think you control, the international community has given its full support to institutional representation and empowerment of Kosovo Serbs.

    Tell me, does your prediction of Serbs in Kosovo carry over to Albanians? Any young Albanian with financial means and skills staying around in the Happiest Place on Earth or are they looking for a one-way ticket out of this Balkan Backwater? How many Albanians in Presevo believe in the cause too? Or does economic opportunity elsewhere pull all young people to move?

    Last I checked, the latest exodus from Kosovo (and there are many of them) are in fact heading towards Serbia Proper, but only to reach the Hungarian border before disappearing into Schengenland and using what little Serbian their parents or grandparents remember to communicate with the drivers for hire.
