IMF warns Kosovo government's spending leading to budget "crisis"

Prishtina [Pristina], 18 May: The International Monetary Fund warned today that if the Kosova [Kosovo] government continues with same trend of spending, the budget could face crises in 2006.

Marc Auboin, the IMF representative in Prishtina, said in a press conference today in Prishtina that Kosova's budget didn't face any crisis till now, "but the budget may remain without money, taking into account the pace Kosova's economy is developing, the impossibility to obtain loans and too many expenses".

Auboin said that the IMF is providing assistance to the government in budget planning, as part of the efforts to save the budget and make it sustainable during 2005-2006 period.

IMF's report shows that, in the first quarter of 2005, Kosova has spent 10m euros more than revenues collected. These means were usually used for payment of civil employees and for social benefits.

The Kosovo "government" isn't worried - they're rolling in money from heroin and human slave trade traffic.

You talk like you know of it from your own experience. Wait, you're a serb: what else can you know?

Well, well, surprise, surprise -- you got yet another thing backwards. That's the best quality you have - lying through your teeth. The rest of your character goes downhill from there...

Here's another surprise for your tiny little corrupt brain: It so happens that I'm German.

German? Hmmmm, Germans are smart, honest, rational, generaly unbiased people, who would add something like this to the comment:

"they and the government in Serbia are rolling in money from heroin and human slave trade traffic"


"since there is no PROOF that all this human trafficing is being done by ALL Albanians or Serbs then we can only assume its being done by a few criminals"

The govt in Kosova ins't all that bad you know, there are quite a few lamers but there are a lot of people who are trying their best, and then there are those who just don't know how to do things, but at least our government hasn't taken up 90% of war criminal positions in the Hague, and produced hundreds of mass graves and rapes...

Damn, thinking about it, I think I'm quite happy if the only sin this government commits has to do with drugs, at least we're not the nazis of after 1950-s.

Wow. A German and talking about other nations being 'backwards'! That's a first.

You may say that someone's brain is tiny, no problem with that (it's your opinion), but how tiny must your German brain be to forget what happened just over 60 years ago.

Now, that's what people of this Earth call backwards.

Since I am a mathematician, I can draw a very serious conclusion:

I thank you, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If a backwards person tells me that I am backwards, then that implies that I am not backwards.

It's simple -(-1) = 1.

It's called double negation.


P.S. This message is not directed to the German people, whom I respect and think of very positively. This message is addressed to the mentally retarded adult-wanabee who posted message #3.

The German is right you are drug dealers and you are the new Nazis.

There is no real government in Kosovo if you haven't noticed.

The rule of law is a foreign concept to you guys.

Now I see why the German economy is doing so crappy. I mean come on guys, you have to make Benzes and Bemmers in Alabama (that is USA) because your own morons are too busy making shit up on the Internet about the hard-working Albanians from Kosova.

Go back to making cars and all that engeeniering shit that made you famous and leave the "making-up shit" to the Serbs because that is what made those bitches famous.

If any German reads this, tell Gisele "I love you baby, come to me"
