Don't remind the "west" of the mess if created and left unattended in former Yugoslavia. Its basically a small Iraq that the friendly US led "coalition" produced there and of course, the consequences are now left on the locals to suffer through. Kosovo was a managed shit-hole as part of Yugoslavia, its basically a basket case and a factory for European-wide criminality now.

Re: The leader of the Serbs in Kosovo, killed today

Its well known worldwide that in counties where Usa intervenes everything goes to hell. Albanians extremists(not talking about average people) are no different than Isis or Al Kaida,both invented by Usa. But its not politicly correct to talk about it , right?

It's meant to be forgotten quickly in order to appear in history as a success. Same as the shameful "reaction" of the Dutch soldiers during Srebrenica where they essentially sent 300 Muslims to death. But hey, you're not supposed to talk about this, only about how good NATO is, how bad the Serbs are (Mind you I'm neither a Serb, nor a fan of them in any shape of form)

Where does this crap about "not supposed to talk about xxx" come from?

Unlike in most of these countries, talking about stuff is pretty well protected in CH / Europe and USA.

The fact that you are talking bollocks about it here and not getting arrested or having your throat cut as you would in some of these countries (before any invasion and in many cases now) is evidence.

Let nature run its course. When will we finally learn that one can't impose development and civilization with brute force? Colonization was a mass disaster. CIA operations in Latin America and the Middle East were a disaster. Military interventions by the US were a disaster. You can't force a 5 year old to read Greek mythology. History keeps on repeating itself and we never learn, just repeat the same mistakes all over again.

Re: The leader of the Serbs in Kosovo, killed today

So in order to prove that the US interventions are beneficial you had to go back to 1950? Anything more recent?

You're missing the point. It's not about blaming the US, which is easy. Victimizing oneself and finding "bad guys" doesn't solve problems, it creates bad stories. What I mean is that US interventions, some of them with good intentions, generally go bad. Really bad. And they have been bad since the dawn of time. My view is to let nature run its course. Luckily, there was no NATO when Cardinal Richelieu basically created modern France. There was no NATO when Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand basically created modern Spain. It was all with blood, but its all a little more stable now. You just can't force externally somethings. Simple.

Kosovo's blooming. Check out their main export product - expats in Syria. Apparently their know-how is indispensable
