Cracks in the Illusion
Gung-ho push for illegal seizure of southern Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija, brought about through Albanian terrorism and ethnic cleansing of non-Albanians from the province, American-led NATO aggression against Serbia and unilateral declaration of independence by the Albanian secessionists in Priština on 17 February 2008, and followed by the equally belligerent Anglo-American campaign for the recognitions of the first heroin state in Europe — with the biggest American military base on the continent as its capital — is slowly but surely starting to show the signs of unraveling.
It will be left to future historians to ponder whether the Empire’s project of redrawing borders of internationally recognized states at will has failed due to the stubborn resistance of tiny Serbia which, among else, has managed to take the issue to the World Court, whether Kosovo Albanian bloodthirsty extremism and sheer barbarism soaked in organized crime and all forms of abhorrent deviance at the societal level is at the core of the failure, if Russia’s recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia finally succeeded in properly focusing the world attention on the seriousness of the issue, or if the reason and the international law have prevailed in spite of the ruling elite’s insistence that might makes right.
For now however, it suffice to say it is becoming more and more evident that the American-British pet project of “independent Kosovo” is grinding to a standstill, hitting walls left, right and center.
Although the Western bloc of states kept touting the “success” of their drive to carve up a new state on the territory of Serbia, the first embarrassing cracks in the illusion became painfully obvious during the UN General Assembly vote on Serbia’s request to send amputation of Kosovo province to the court, on 8 October 2008.
Serbia, which needed a simple majority, scored a major victory at the biggest international forum, with 77 UN member states voting for its initiative. United States and Albania, which voted against Serbia, received support only from the four American colonies comprised of the Micronesian islands most of the world never heard of before: Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau.
World Muslims Snub Anglo-American Stillborn Child
Mafia state in the heart of Serbia didn’t fare better in the second biggest international arena either, the Organization of The Islamic Conference (OIC), embodying 57 predominantly Muslim UN-member states.
At the 11th OIC Summit held in March 2008 in Dakar, Senegal, attempt by Turkey — British and American key ally in Euroasia — to include an article expressing the recognition of independence of Serbian province in the closing document of the Muslim World Conference was blocked by several countries including Azerbaijan, Egypt, Sudan and Indonesia. Instead of inviting the Islamic states to recognize the Anglo-American abomination on the Serbian territory as an “independent state”, OIC’s closing document merely “acknowledged” Priština’s unilateral declaration of independence.
Similarly, just closed 12th OIC conference brought major disappointment for the Washington-London-Brussels Axis: even after the clear instructions to the Muslim world by the British FM David Miliband to recognize integral part of Serbia as an independent state, and even as the main US ally in the Arab world — the Saudi king’s representative — was elected to urge collective recognition of the fake state of Kosovo, the Islamic world convening in the Syrian capital Damascus refused to comply with the Anglo-American diktat, delivered via the notorious US errand-runners Albania, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
Puppet States Recognizing Another Puppet
Though Albanians and their handlers are quick to point out that the fake state of Kosovo was “recognized by 60 countries” (less than a third of 192 UN member states), closer examination reveals the list, apart from the Western bloc, is comprised of significant portion of token-states that should fight for their own independence first, being run by the US and incurably colonial Britain, such as the above mentioned Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau, or Maldives, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Samoa and Sierra Leone; and a majority of the countries subjugated to the US, like Karzai’s Afghanistan, Turkey, Albania, Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica or Estonia and Lithuania.
On the other hand, majority of the UN member states refuse to condone the willful amputation of part of Serbian state territory, including the biggest and most populous countries in the world, such as Russia, China, India, Brazil and Indonesia, the key states in their respective regions like South Africa, Venezuela, Argentina and Egypt, the EU members like Spain, Slovakia, Romania, Cyprus and Greece, or the countries with a proud record of standing up to the US hegemony, such as Cuba, Syria, Libya, Azerbaijan, North Korea, Iran and Bolivia.
Agonizing Milking of Recognitions
The obvious lack of wide support for Anglo-American border redrawing designs is underlined by the fact the excruciating ordeal of milking recognitions is strictly limited to each country’s ruling elite, in essence boiling down to a few individuals at the helm of each state, with no referendums and no public debate being allowed in any of the countries which have issued recognition.
And while the Albanians are readily rolling in the mud and obligingly kissing behinds of global riffraff (reserving the Priština street-naming “tradition” for the American bureaucrats alone) in a pitiful show of slavish gratitude, the utterly disgraceful drive to sever Kosovo province from Serbia has been marred by the countless humiliating revelations, including the accusations of bribery and conditioning equal to the overt or covert threats.
Thus, it was revealed Maldives’ recognition was bought for $2M, paid to the order of the state’s foreign minister, while other countries, including Macedonia and Montenegro, openly complained of the unrelenting pressure by Washington, London and Brussels, which forced their recognition of the fake state in Serbia.
It took a year and a half for Albanian secessionists in Priština to realize premature euphoria they fueled with baseless promises, such as triumphant announcements of recognitions by the “100 countries” on the very day unilateral independence is declared, should be toned down in the light of sobering awareness things are not going quite as planned.
At the same time, it took less than a month for the world to learn the already pocketed recognitions are far from being as safe, sound and irreversible as Albanian lobbyists would want.
While some recognitions sounded more like the shame-ridden confessions that the states in question are, in fact, US colonies, like the Japanese recognition, dripping with apologies and discomfort, some were left open-ended from the start, such as Costa Rican pledge to withdraw the recognition if the International Court of Justice ruled against severing of Kosovo province.
Polish President Lech Kaczynski went public with his disapproval of the recognition issued by his government, punctuating his position by blocking an opening of the Polish embassy in the fake state.
The rift caused in the Czech Republic by issuing recognition of Kosovo province was even more pronounced and considered a trigger for toppling Mirek Topolanek’s government.
Czech President Vaclav Klaus, one of the staunchest opponents of dismemberment of Serbia, said he was ashamed by the Czech recognition of the Serbian province as an independent state and refused to furnish the heroin state with the Czech ambassador.
Moreover, toppling of the government which issued recognition on behalf of the Czech Republic, has initiated calls in the state’s parliament for withdrawal of the Czech recognition.
Similar indications are now coming from Macedonia.
Citing Albanian and Macedonian dailies, B92 today wrote Skopje is considering revoking its recognition of the mafia state on Serbian territory. The report was instantly followed by Solana representative’s in Brussels knee-jerk reaction, ordering Skopje and Priština to “waste no time and start building good relations” — the best possible confirmation Macedonian government is indeed reconsidering its earlier, forced decision.
And while there can be no doubt Macedonians will once again be exposed to the full extent of London/Brussels fury, with their violent Albanian population possibly taking up arms yet again, one wonders whether the latest soundbites coming from France might suggest a u-turn neither Washington nor Brussels (nor London, in particular) could hammer back in line.
France: Nothing is Irreversible
What is entirely clear from the recent visit by Serbian President Boris Tadic to the Elysée Palace is that France has made a decision Serbia will no longer be abused — enough is enough, Sarkozy said.
Reminding of the “great sacrifices” Serbs have suffered in Kosovo province, French president said that “Serbia has suffered a lot, it was humiliated and it’s time to end that”. He added that “conditions must not be imposed on Serbia again”.
According to Belgrade daily Blic, Tadic’s meeting with Sarkozy signaled an end of Serbophobe Kouchner’s steering of the French foreign policy anti-Serbian way. Vice president of the Serbian government pointed out the agreement President Sarkozy wants to sign with Serbia in Belgrade about the strategic cooperation between the two countries carries special weight in the light of the fact France has no similar agreement with any other non-EU member state.
“Sarkozy said he views Serbia as the strongest state in the Balkan peninsula, in regards to its military and economic potential”, Đelic told Blic.
What is less clear right now is whether France’s determination to support Anglo-American project of the fake state of Kosovo is as firm today as it was a year ago, when Bernard Kouchner was France’s exclusive Balkan viceroy, personally crossing every ‘t’ and dotting every ‘i’.
On the eve of Tadic’s visit to France, Serbian-language edition of BBC carried an insightful interview with French deputy Jacques Myard from Sarkozy’s ruling UMP party, who is also a member of French Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee.
Asked to comment the statement of American vice president Joseph Biden that United States considers amputation of the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija an “irreversible” act, Myard said there is nothing “irreversible” in politics.
“France recognized Kosovo, and that is its government’s official position. However, in politics and international relations there is only one rule: Never say never. Nothing is irreversible. Many French deputies believe something will have to change, being that a dangerous precedent has been created in Kosovo which, for example, Russia used last summer in Georgia, when it occupied South Ossetia and Abkhazia. France is fully aware Serbia will never recognize Kosovo and it will not request any such thing, since that would be entirely absurd,” Myard said.
