They forgot Albania with $700,000. It's a poor country too but it chiped in.

can u tell the world where you got the $500K in teh first place??? was it from selling drugs or pimping out your women in london and other cities accross europe? or was it money you got from selling off serbian property and companies that serbs built for you?? which one is it?

Young Serb, it looks as if you are enraged by the Albanian culture. Perhaps I sense a bit of jealousy there. Please take a good look at your self and your people before you start analyzing Albanians. I believe you are in shit up to your nose and you are trying to avoid it at all cost, even if that means propagandizing against the Albanians. Well, a word to the wise, shit will not disappear unless you clean it up. Worry about yourself before you start collecting false facts about Albanians in a desperate attempt to make them look bad at the top of their game.

Anonymous said...

- This is perhaps the money that Albanians were using in the past to bribe the Serbian government and police to allow them to operate their small businesses, their bakeries, their food markets. They no longer have to bribe anyone to exist, therefore it may be considered a surplus. :-)

- Or perhaps this is a portion of the money that the United States provided to Kosova in 1999 (while they were bombing the shit out of Serbia). No wonder, the grudge will not allow Serbs (a.k.a. "НЕБЕСКИ НАРОД" - Heavenly Nation)to offer aid.

U.S. offers $500 million in aid to Kosovo
WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States will provide up to $500 million in food, shelter and other humanitarian aid for Kosovo civilians rebuilding their lives following destruction by Serb forces. "

We will never forget!

Since Iran and Cuba have offered aid, and Serbia and North Korea are missing from the list, I suggest Rummy updates his Axis of Evil list. Just a suggestion.

To the Serb loser:

We can talk where we got the $500.000 when you tell me where is my TV set that you stole from my house during the NATO bombing. When you tell me where is my bed, my CD player, my curtains, my oven, my fridge, my freezer, my DVD player, my radio, my PC... where is my car (an old Golf 2, nevertheless in good working order) that you stole and drove to Serbia?

The only thing that you cowards left behind was the kettle for Albanian tea which was dumped in the garden. It was very simbolic, but I was really happy that there is something that makes me different to you cowards, and that day the difference was my tea kettle.

Disappear you coward!

Absurdities and Atrocities

I believe a blogg of this nature is an incredible outlet. It brings out the worst in the Serbs. They do not even know what they fight for: some absurd concept that dates back to some even more historically absurd time. Someone once said “ Those who can make you believe in absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” This quote is perfect depictions of the Serb nation from their 5th century move to the Balkans and very much alive today. I wonder if the Byzantine brought them the Balkans (as Servants) by making them believe in absurdities. (By the way, original bed of Servs is modern day Iraq, who could have thought this, they brought their troubles with them to the Balkans. I think the Serbs are lucky the Illyrians allowed them to stay otherwise they would be Iraqis today. Come to think of it you owe everything to the Illyrian hospitality.)

i NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THOSE TWO WORDS TOGETHER!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!! THAT IS SOOO FUNNY!!!

ALBANIAN said...

All Serbs believe what they hear. That's why they will never have the 'Greater Serbia' they wanted. They have no spirits! no money! and every word that comes out of their mouth is either a fantasy idea like greater serbia and a lie. LONG LIVE 'ALBANIAN KOSOVA' SERBS, IF YOU LIKE RUSSIA SO MUCH GO LIVE THERE!

ALBANIA said...

What happened. No made up historical comments for our readers. Serbs came from the Ural mountains of Russia end of 6th cent. And yes, ALbanians were found by them in all of Kosova. Albania is a very generous country. They know how to return a favor and help. GOD BLESS ALL THE PEOPLE OF NEW ORLEANS AND MISSISSIPPI.

Continuity in Balkans

Despite the multiethnic nature of the Balkans, it seems that most inhabitants of the peninsula share common ancestors. Scientists feel that we will have a better picture of these ethnic trajectories within the next several years. The genetic marker M170 appears to have come from the Middle East to the Balkan region roughly 20,000 years ago. It seems today that this marker is unique to the Balkans area, though research suggests that about 80% of European genetic stock goes back to Paleolithic period.

Just yesterday they found a 10 thousand years old graveyard in Sovian this is in the Korca reagion. Yesterday they also found an ancient city which is 8 thousand years old form the Enkelei kingdom.

10 thousand years ago the Serbs didn't even exist. They were living the life of a big ape keeping company to cave bears in the URAL mountains.

if they found dinosaur remains too, would you claim you were a dinosaur?

They found the remains of the oldest existing a$$ in the Ural mountains. That explains the Serbs' features.

That's funny after 8 thousand years the albanian culture is still a$$ backwards and primative.

THAT MEANS YOU DEFEND THOSE CRIMINALS. YOU ARE PRIMITIVE AND RETARTED.

I'm not defending anybody, I just stating an observation. I was in Skopje, Macedonia recently on a job related visit and noticed how archaic the Albanians were. It's hard to believe the poster above said the Ablanian culture is 8000 years old. It's almost like time has past them by.

Anonymous said...

I think the Serbs are right - and not only because it would be stupid to send aid to someone who tried to bomb them to the stone age just a few years ago.

When I see Albania, Kosovo and all the other poor countries offer aid while they themselves get lots of aid I can only wonder. For me it doesn't make any sense at all. Just pumping around money and giving the diplomats yet another occasion to party.

IM ALBANIAN AMERICAN AND I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY OUR LEADERS ALWAYS ARGUE WITH ONE ANOTHER AND AT THE SAME TIME DON'T GVE A SHIT ABOUT US! YES MONEY IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER. BUT WHEN WILL THEY LEAVE THE POSTS. THEY MAKE US LOOK BAD .

Anonymous said...

why didnt they give that money locally for the Serbs to rebuild their churches if they care about a (Independant) multiethnic state?

lets not forget it was the Serbs and Tito's Yugoslavia that educated the Albanians...

you seem to know alot about war generals... what about ppl like Tesla? Andric? (ok debatable, but he tends to side with serbian side)...

Albanian Orthodox said...

It's obvious they don't give shit to the serbs you little prick..What did the serbs for the albanians? I tell you what...you are cowards that deserve nothing else but to be locked in a zoo along with your spiritual leaders like Milosevic ang Amfilohije. It is not brave to rape women and then kill them just like you did previously in Bosnia Croatia and then in Kosovo.You will all burn to hell for this.Anywhere you went you caused nothing else but war, hatred and crimes.And now you ask for help to rebuild your churches. It will NEVER happen !! Kosovo WILL become indipendent whether you like it or not !!!

...another 'flower' of the albanian nation speaks before me. Nice.
Independece is but a dream. Fact. It has been 6 long years and Pristina resembles Baghdad and Gaza. Get real. Your little narc/terrorist cesspool you've created will remain a protectorate for generations while the internatioanl community fails to teach you how to create a civil society.

Serbs don't have to. Americans do. We have intelligence officers over there for that very reason. Our troops are there for that very reason. Get real.
