After Bushs visit to Albania, there were allegations that his watch was stolen. Well, see it, in order to believe it.
Well Mr.Dodson, whole the world reported that George W. Bush visited Albania and promised a lot about the independence of Kosovo and Albania becoming part of NATO.
Was I impressed. Huh, not at all.
I am tired of words Sean. I know I should have written something, at least something but people already knew what Bush said.
I was devastated. I see it from a completely different angle.
What do you want me to say? That Albanians were happy that Bush visited them and Albanians cheered, clapped, hugged him and some of them dropped down on their knees and kissed his feet? Which it did happened. The same people went back home with high andrenaline rush and empty stomacs as well.
People are hungry Mr.Dodson. People are living through economic catastrophy in Albania and Kosovo. People are used to suffer over here but I don’t believe that anyone should be privileged to suffering.
When a President (whoever he is) comes over and helps with developing the economy, destroying corruption, developing schools and health system, hell, that’s when I will report.
It’s not only about miracles happening over here. We’ve got a very corrupted system. Politicians live like pigs over here (well, everywhere in the world but over here they just do it in open, shamelessly). They have luxurious homes, expensive cars and they get VIP treatments wherever they go….while the rest of the country live with average 80 pounds per month (I haven’t got the sign of the pound in the keyboard – welcome to Kosovo) I have seen some living with 20 pounds per month as well.
They are strong people. Damn it, they are strong. I am so proud of them. I do keep a brave face but to be honest I can’t handle it. I wait until everybody goes to sleep and then I cry until early hours of the morning. It might sound pathetic but I can’t handle it sometimes. I constantly feel a knot on my throat and I can not eat and sometimes neither speak.
They are strong but people are dropping dead, dead like guinea pigs who have gone through a an experiment which went horribly wrong Mr.Dodson. If that happened in Britain, you would expect massive protests from people who stand up for animal rights.
These are people. Who is standing up for them?
They deserve a better life. They have got one life to live like we all do.
So, when someone puts their words in practice, thats when I think it’s worth reporting. Other than that, I do not see a reason.
The story that had been reported about Albanian terrorists from former Yougoslavia in United States…
Well, whoever those journalists were that reported this story, I would just like to tell them that journalism is not for idiots. We are servants of people and we should be honest and precise with the public.
Those Albanians were from Macedonia and not from Kosovo. Ok? I hope this is clear now. I am not being bias but this is the truth.
It is my fault as well for not double checking the facts but I thought that they were trained in western Universities and they should know better…
But here you go, facts are more thrilling than fiction sometimes.
And I do apologise to everybody for misinforming you previously. I am sorry.
‘Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica warned that any foreign recognition of Kosovo would be viewed as harsh interference in Serbia’s domestic affairs. He also said that integration into Europe would not be considered compensation for any loss of Serbia’s territorial integrity.’ (source:http://www.stratfor.com)
Of course this is not news but I decided to publish if for the sake of being transparent with all sides. Vice-President of Kostunica told me the same thing when I interviewed him in Belgrade in 2000.
I am not shocked that they don’t want to give up Kosovo. I just don’t get it why? They abused Kosovo in every single way and now they claim that they love it and can’t live without it. Fhew, it’s kind of worrying because they sound like one of those abusing partners who beat the crap out of their partners and then they tell them, with tears and blood in their face: ‘Babe, I can’t live without you. I love you. You know that, don’t you?’
Kind of psychotic, isn’t it? And worrying because they claim to be democrats. Hmmm, democracy in which I’m living in Britain is completely and utterly different. Just take my word for it Mr.Kostunica.
Wake up Serbia, wake up. Check the dictionary and understand the word democracy. Do that for the sake of human rights.

The United States and its European allies have circulated a draft U.N. Security Council resolution that would set Kosovo on the path to independence from Serbia. VOA’s Peter Heinlein at U.N. headquarters reports sponsors are pushing for speedy approval of the measure.
The draft resolution was circulated quietly Friday after a brief discussion among Council members. American Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad, who has made Kosovo a priority of this month’s U.S. presidency of the Security Council, declined to answer questions after a brief announcement.
Half of my brain is telling me it is not true, another half is telling me it is true.
I still can not comprehend as what made these Kosovo Albanians to initiate this act?!
Damn it, we fought for freedom and liberty. We went through hell because we believe in freedom.
What ignorant idiot would do such a thing?
Why? I do not understand why?
In the name of Allah? But in the name of Allah, what? Killing people? Do they realise that even Koran does not support terrorism. True Islam supports peace and knowledge.
But it’s common sense you dumb asses, you don’t kill someone because it’s wrong. Which part don’t you understand?
Oh, and this idea of ‘sacrifice’ is really pushing me to an edge. If there is paradise, there I no short-cut to paradise you idiots.
What is the most dangerous thing in this world?
It’s ignorance, it’s as simple as that. These guys were ignorant and full stop.
But this fact still does not justify their acts.
They do not represent me as Kosovo Albanian, nor Kosovo‘s beliefs. We believe in peace and freedom not in terrorist acts.
Shame on you guys.
Blood of people who died in Kosovo is still fresh. They died in order for us to live in freedom. Their blood will curse you.
Six Muslims, four of them Albanians from ex-Yugoslavia, were arrested and charged Monday night with planning a heavily armed attack on soldiers at Fort Dix, USA.
News of the arrests has caused something of a furore in Kosovo, with politicians and institutions strongly condemning the alleged plotters and offering to help the US government with their enquiries.
In a letter that Agim Ceku, Kosovo’s prime minister sent to Tina Kaidanow, head of the US Office in Pristina, on Wednesday, he condemned the incident and reaffirmed Kosovo’s full support and eagerness to help in the on-going investigation.
“We are disgusted by the fact that any Albanian anywhere in the world could be involved in such acts against a nation which has been so generous to us,” said Ceku.
Kosovan political parties said the alleged plot damaged the image of Albanians.
Hashim Thaci, head of Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, the main opposition party in Kosovo, said in a statement released yesterday that “Kosovo and Albanians in general have always and continue to take an active part in the war against global terrorism”.
More than 100 civil society organisations and media condemned the Albanians implicated in the planned attack, saying they were in no way representative of the Albanian people.
Civil society activists will on Wednesday organise a petition against terrorist acts and in support of the American people and government.
Serbian police have arrested 27 nationalist demonstrators who said they were recruiting volunteer guards to fight in Kosovo if the breakaway province tries to separate from Serbia.
Several hundred people, including military veterans and former paramilitaries, gathered at a rally in the central Serbian city of Krusevac to swear allegiance to the “Tsar Lazar Guard”. The group, which claims to have enlisted 5,000 volunteers, is named after a medieval Serbian leader who died fighting the Ottoman Turks in the 1389 battle for Kosovo.
The detainees were wearing black T-shirts with the letters JSO, a symbol of a banned paramilitary group from the 1990s. Authorities said they will start legal procedures against them.
A UN-mediated plan for Kosovo envisions supervised independence for the region, something many Serbs refuse to accept, because they consider the region of Kosovo as Serbia’s historical heartland.
More than 90 percent of Kosovo’s population today is ethnic-Albanian, the Voice of America reports.
I am wondering, why the hell other countries have got to decide for the fate of my own country? For the fate of my family, friends and all the people who live on that land?
How would any country feel like if someone else was deciding whether they deserve to live in freedom or not?
Whichever country is denouncing the indepenedece of Kosovo, they are publicly declaring that they are against European Covention of Human Rights.
I thought Europe belived in democracy!
Everyone knows that Kosovo is still a burning flame. If Serbians attack us again we will defend oursleves. Besides, we’ve got nothing to lose, we have lost a lot already.
However, no one wants another war. No one in the right mind would want to go through war.
Kosovo has had ENOUGH.
Think and help them. Please.
