Kosovo Police Disperse Anti-UN Protesters;Dozens Arrested

PRISTINA (AP)--Police in Kosovo on Wednesday used pepper spray to disperse dozens of ethnic Albanian protesters spray-painting U.N. vehicles with anti-U.N. slogans. Several dozen were arrested.

About 100 demonstrators wearing white T-shirts painted the Albanian word for " the end" on several U.N. cars parked near the U.N. mission headquarters in Kosovo's capital, Pristina.

Police arrested dozens of youths, including former student leader Albin Kurti.

The demonstration was organized by a group called Self-determination, which has staged regular protests to demand that the U.N. leave Kosovo. The group is also pressing for the province's independence from Serbia and rejects the idea of negotiations over Kosovo's future status with Serbia.

Kurti, the leader of the group, was jailed by Serb authorities during the crackdown by former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic's forces on ethnic Albanian separatists in Kosovo. He spent several years in prison.

Kosovo has been administered by the U.N. since a 1999 North Atlantic Treaty Organization air war halted the Serb offensive.

There are around 3,000 U.N. police serving alongside 7,000 members of the fledgling Kosovo Police Service.

The province's status remains disputed. The ethnic Albanian majority wants independence, while Serbs living in Kosovo demand that it remain part of Serbia. Talks to determine Kosovo's future are expected to take place later this year.

(and again dont give me this stupid rhetoric that holbrroke thought u "u cant reward genocide" cause taht is what he is rewarding the albos in kosovo with, in the last 100 years the Albos have totally cleansed out all serbs from kosovo for good, 250,000 in 99' and hundreds of thousands through the years, that is the REAL genocide in kosovo), did the serbs want to have the highest amount of refugees in europe today? 350,000 from Croatia 250k from kosovo and the same # from bosnia? guys half of teh war dead in bosnia are serbs (THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS WAS CONDUCTED BY A CIA REPORT IN 1994 WHERE THE REPORT COVERED ONLY TEH MUSLIM/CRAOT TERRITORY!!!! THEY DIDNT EVEN CARE TO GO TO SEE HOW MANY SERBS DIED) ALL THIS BULLHSIT THETORIC ABOUT 250,000 DEAD?? WHAT? THERE IS PROOF AND EVIDENC OF 40,000 LOOK IT UP ON UR OWN. HALF WERE SERBS, WAR IS HELL. WHAT DID U EXPECT WHEN THE KLA STARTED TO SHOT AT SERB POLICE AND ARMY? WERE THEY NOT SUPPOSED TO SHOT BACK??

Its interesting how serbs now claim that albanians are muslim fundamentalists. This kind of reasoning is getting a bit trite. Serbs now want kosova to become a religious issue while forgetting that they decied to remove Kosovas autonomy, jail thousands, put serbs on every position with authority even though albanians were a majority in the province, close down the university for albanian students, discriminate against albananians in every possible way and still act like the massacres they committed where ok because in the village of a thousand there was one KLA member. With claims like these serbs are going to be successful in one thing and one thing only, create enemies. I dont know what the status talks will bring, however, one thing is for certain the war of '99 was just a warmup. Sooner or later albanians and serbs will tangle again if Kosova is not independent.

dude TRUST ME on this one Kosovo will be independent soon and serbs n albos will tango again, what do u think independence means the end of the dance, NOT. 50 years will pass and it will still go on. and yes, if the Albaniacs were not muslims this fanatical territory grab that was NEVER EVER under ALBANIAN control would never have happened, u would not muliply like roaches and you would not have allowed Bin Laden to come to Kosovo and Albania. PLEASE ANSWER MY PREVIOUS QUESTIONS.

You say you are not calling names, but you are callng names. Your questions are suggestive and you yourself do not believe what you're saying. You are a racist, brainwashed Serb who needs a life. The stuff that you post here is nothing more then jibberish. The article that you posted was written by a guy who was citing himself and Emperor's Clothes.

I suggest you find something better to do with your time.

However I must admit that sometimes your posts are entertaining.


It is sad that most people in Serbia think like you (Radical Party of Seselj won most of the votes). Serbia needs to do some serious soul-searching.

Kurti has put UNMIK in a difficult position. On the one hand he is using UN resolutions to prove his point. On another level, because he has been persecuted (jail, torture, etc) by the Serbs, UN would fall on the same level as the Serbs if they did anything like that to him, and would increase student support for him. So UNMIK basically lets KPS jail his followers (and now him too) in ways that clearly violate civil liberties.
Don't get me wrong, damaging property, even UN's, is not acceptable. I think Kurti has to come up with more creative ways than spray painting to increase pressure on the UN.

Im sorry to say to albanians, but there will not be any independence. Not a chance. I see it as a person outside and maybe the best thing would even be independence, but no, there wont be any.

Serb dude u haven't proved yourself to be right. Why would we prove you're wrong.

Don't try to lecture me on Serb heroism. I wasn't fighting either, but Serbs were running like rats when planes shot by. They would let garages open and scramble in whenever there was an alarm. I had numerous soldiers (18 or 19 of age) coming to our house asking for civilian clothes after they had deserted. The only thing that kept them on their battle stations was the special police and the paramilitary thugs. You can imagine how effective they were, shooting aimlessly (they didn't dare turn on any radar) at the sky hoping that a jet would hit their cannon shells.

Let's not talk about how military convoys were mixed up with refugees, how tank and anti-aircraft units were stationed at our neigborhood to hide and even if discovered make it impossible for NATO to strike.
When Turkish pilots flew sorties (it was personal for some of them because 50 years ago Rankovic had cleansed their parents and grandparents out of Kosova), Serbs got heart attacks.

Don't wish for the ground battle with NATO, you already had one with your juniors, Croats, and you lost it badly. Remember Oluja in 1995, when Croat Army (on top with General Cheku, among four other generals) kicked Serb ass all the way to the border of Serbia. Boy you run like hell! What was it, 3 days or 4? So you're good at that.

I'll tell you what elese you are good at. Throwing gasoline at 200,000 houses. So far, you have only convicned me of two things. Wherever else thare was a decent resistance, you blamed the world for the catastrophe endured.

Putin-Bush Negotiations on Kosovo: Independence of Kosovo in exchange for Serbia’s EU membership

(The analysis is a bit belated, as I didn’t have time to make it during the week).

After Putin negotiated with Bush the beginning of the EU negotiations with Turkey, in exchange of the start of the EU membership negotiations with Croatia,

Putin now agrees negotiating Kosovo in exchange of the US’ acceptance of an EU seat for Serbia, or at least this is the stance Putin now seem to display:

Russia thinks talks on Kosovo status could be started
MOSCOW. Oct 20 (Interfax) - Moscow believes talks on the status of Kosovo could be started at the current stage of the Kosovo settlement, Russia's permanent representative in the UN Andrei Denisov said.

"While continuing to observe international standards, it would be correct to consider to the status process, Denisov said in an interview to be published in the Vremya Novostei newspaper on Friday.


The stake:

“The UN-sanctioned war in the Balkans was all about oil and the pipeline easement for Caspian Sea oil to Western European markets through Kosovo to the Mediterranean Sea.”[url]

The negotiation process is set to start next month.


Kosovo starts journey toward self-rule “It must provide enough carrots to Belgrade to let Kosovo go (perhaps a promise of membership in the EU).”

“Partitioning Kosovo is not in the cards.”

“Nor is the idea of ethnically Albanian Kosovo joining Albania.”

“The best way forward is for Pristina and Belgrade to begin negotiations, under international supervision, with the goal of Kosovo becoming independent, as did Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Macedonia.

“On Oct. 24, the United Nations Security Council will hold a crucial session on the future status of Kosovo, a Serbian province that has been under the UN administration since 1999.
Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica will head a delegation to the UN Security Council session to expound on Serbia's stance over Kosovo.

Source: Xinhua”

The head of the UN mission in Kosovo, Soren Jessen-Petersen, said in neighbouring Albania Wednesday that "we have all come to the conclusion that after six years ... the status quo is no longer tenable."

He confirmed that the UN Security Council session next week would set a timetable for the negotiations and that they would begin next month.

"There is an absolute agreement throughout the region, Europe and the world that the Kosovo that emerges from the decision (about its) status must be a stable, tolerant, multi-ethnic and democratic Kosovo," Petersen said.

The stake:

“The UN-sanctioned war in the Balkans was all about oil and the pipeline easement for Caspian Sea oil to Western European markets through Kosovo to the Mediterranean Sea.”

“An alternate route would be to move the tankers from the Black Sea, bypassing the Bosporus, up the Danube River and then through a very short pipeline across Kosovo to the Mediterranean at Tirana, Albania.”[url]
