Strap in, lads.
We may experience a new Yugoslav war in our lifetimes.
A Kosovo police raid in the Serb-dominated area of the breakaway region is a provocation, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said, adding that Pristina’s actions were indulged by the EU and US.
Moscow regards the Tuesday intrusion by Kosovo’s special forces (ROSU) into the Serb-populated northern municipalities as a “provocation,” spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
Pristina’s ultimate aim, she explained, is “to intimidate and force out the non-Albanian population and forcibly establish control of the area.”
Fucking hell. Call it out for what it is: ethnic cleansing.
On Tuesday morning, Kosovo special forces (ROSU) launched a raid in the town of Zubin Potok in the Serb-dominated north-western part of Kosovo. Gunfire was reportedly heard on the streets as police, according to Pristina, targeted an “organized crime network.” Over a dozen ethnic Serbs are said to have been arrested.
Moscow said the operation violates the agreements between Belgrade and Pristina which prohibit Kosovo special forces, armed with long-barreled weapons, from penetrating deep into the Serbian municipalities.
I’m hoping against hope that the Serbs begin mobilizing, but at the same time, I appreciate the difficult situation that they’re in.
Last time around, the German, British, American, Israeli, Turkish and Iranian intelligence threw everything that they had against Serbia. With Russia being led by the incompetent drunk, Boris Yeltsin, Serbia was totally surrounded by jihadis and being bombed by NATO warplanes. And their neighbors were all being supported by the West. They were totally and completely alone.
Despite all this, they performed pretty well in that war, proving once again that American propaganda about having the best military in the world is just that: demoralization propaganda which isn’t based in reality, and that determined resistance is possible.
These “provocations” have been ongoing since the 90s and for the most part, the Serbs have had to keep their powder dry. Furthermore, they have a new comprador elite put into power. Just the other day, their president said some bizarre and worrying things to the Parliament.
Serbia needs to accept that it has lost control over Kosovo, its former southern province, and it must seek a compromise to normalize ties with Pristina, President Aleksandar Vucic told parliament in unusually blunt terms on Monday.
“We need to recognize that we have been defeated.. We lost the territory,” Vucic told parliament during a special session dedicated to Kosovo.
“I did not opt to continue with lies and deceit. I have told everyone: There is no Serbian (visible) authority in Kosovo except in hospitals and schools,” he said.
“We have two options – to normalize relations by reaching an agreement or to maintain a frozen conflict,” Vucic told the deputies, mostly members of the ruling coalition controlled by his Progressive Party.
This was a terrible thing to say openly.
Only the West recognizes Kosovo. Serbia’s only ally and only serious sponsor since time immemorial has been Russia, and they think that the whole Kosovo thing is complete bullshit – which it is.
One Russian got detained by the Kosovars and the Russians are livid. Their media isn’t pulling any punches.
Serbia has decided to put its army on alert.
If there is going to be another NATO-sponsored Jihad, the Serbs will have at least some Russian support.
A few S-300s would really even the playing field this time around.
