The countdown to NATO bombing the hell out of Skopje in support of Albanian terrorists begins now.
Five police officers died and dozens were wounded in a daylong gun battle in an ethnic Albanian suburb of northern Macedonia on Saturday, adding the threat of armed conflict to a deep political crisis rocking the ex-Yugoslav republic.
The Balkan country’s interior ministry said an unspecified number of gunmen were also killed, but that it had no information on civilian casualties during clashes that began before dawn and stretched into the evening.
Police said that acting on information about an “armed group” they had launched an operation in an ethnic Albanian district of the northern town of Kumanovo 40 km (25 miles) north of the capital Skopje. The region saw heavy fighting during an ethnic Albanian insurgency in 2001.
Units of special police in armoured vehicles locked down the neighbourhood and helicopters circled overhead. A Reuters photographer reported hearing heavy automatic gunfire and loud explosions. Black smoke rose over the town and residents were seen leaving the area carrying belongings.
“The situation on the ground remains highly critical,” Interior Minister Gordana Jankulovska told a news conference. She said some gunmen had surrendered, without saying how many.
“The action will continue until every last terrorist is caught,” Jankulovska said.
A ministry spokesman, Ivo Kotevski, said the group was planning “terrorist acts” and had “infiltrated” the country from a neighbouring state, without saying which.
An estimated 30 percent of Macedonia’s 2 million people are ethnic Albanians. Guerrillas took up arms in 2001, clashing with security forces before the West brokered a peace deal offering the Albanian minority greater rights and representation and the insurgents entered government.
This thing is going to blow up. Stopping a few Albanian revolutionary terrorists only means more will come.
These terrorists are allegedly coming from Kosovo, which could well mean they are acting in tandem with US terrorist forces.
FYROM would do well to side with Russia, because the West has a long-standing policy of always siding with Moslem terrorists in every single situation.
They’d better just go ahead and change their name as well, it would put them in a much better situation.
