To je ta bratska ljubav, cast i slicno, tu vidimo ko voli da bode, bocka. Iii a kako je zavrsio drugi sin u narodu poznatiji kao bocko. E pa draga deco bocka je u svojim osvajanjima slucajno naisla ne secam se bese zlatna horda mongoli tako neka ekipa.

Autorska tema.

Mnogi Srbi gledajući na Kosovo preskaču najbitniji detalj u sudbini te Srpske muke i otimane teritorije...
Vraćamo se na istorijski identitet srpsta što Kosovo i jeste, jeste i mitski simbol ma koliko mi to osporavali. Niko ne poriče Lazara Hrebljanovića i njegovo djelo. (ja lično za lazara nisam baš imao prevelike simpatije pre jer je bio jedan od velikaša koji je rasparčao Srbiju posle onog "nejakog"... i tako rasparčani smo krneuli u istorisjki poraz, ali častan.

Šta veže prvi i poslednji Kosovski boj? Početak vazalstva. Srbiaj je porzaom od mnogobrojnije osmanlijske zgadije pala u ropstvo, a poslednji boj je doneo "demokratsko korektno" vazalstvo ako ne slušamo eu i ameirku bićemo bedna primitivna izolovana nacija...

Sve greške upiremo u psoeldnji rat, koji je doprineo ponajviše prvo bravar iz kumrovca podleivši Srbiju na tri djela promenom ustava sfrj 1974 i miloševićevu politiku, odugovlačenja tog pitanja, toboz prečim poslovima oko rata u bejha...

MNOGI NE VIDE REALNOST I NAJVEĆU GREŠKU!

Balkanskim ratom i konačnim progonom osmanlija , "oslobađanjem" Kosova , mi smo učinili samo deo posla zaduzbine od dvanina kada govorimo o oslobodjenju Srpske teritorije. Zacrtali smo sebi kao da je oslobodjeno.
KOGASMOSE MI REŠILI ?

Osmanlije smo proćerali ali smo OSTAVILI NJIHOVE VAZALE IZ ALBANIJE KOJE SU OSMANLIJE ZA VRJEME SVOJE TIRANIJE DOVELE NA KOSOVO.

toliko se busate kolko poznajemo istoriju a retko ko ovo ikada pominje.

KOSOVO PRAKTIČNO N IJE OSLOBODJENO POTPUNO!!! proćerali smo osmanlije i ostavili njihove vazale , albance. OSTAVILI ONE KOJI ĆE U SVAKOM NAREDNOM RATU BITI NA KRVNIČKOJ STRANI I KLATI NAŠ NAROD DOLJE, KAKO SA AUSTROUGARIMA, TAKO I SA FAŠISTIMA!!!

posluzili su austrougarskoj, posluzili fašizmu i titoizmu...

TU JE GREŠKA NEOPROSTIVA!!!

da su sa osmanlijama u paketu poslati i njihovi vazali koje su oni ovdje doveli i nastanili , trag im bi se izgubio, a njihova priča tek onda ne bi imala podlogu...


PAMETNI KRALJ PETA! DEBILCINA...

kolko su se nama ti karadjordjevici tim postupkom krvi napili a pogotovo jugoslavijom kao utopijom srpstva još decenijama ćemo snositi posledice...

tu je naša najveća greška oko kosova. titoisti su samo, sa bravarom na čelu prihvatili te albanske separatiste i baliste, kao oruzje u secesiji jugoslavije...

ne bih bilo da smo terajući osmanlije sa njima oterali i njihove sluge verne i gov.na koja su tu naselili i dali im zemlju...

to je ucinjeno odavnina, sila zapadna je svojim interesom cepala balkan podrzavavsi tita kreditima da zamazuje oci narodu...

i tada psole oslobodjenja u balkanskom ratu srbi nijesu bili vecina dolje kakvom su trebali biti... nadalje su uvjek realno bili manjina od albanaca turskih vazala...

albanci naravno zivevsi u blagodetima u odnosu na srbe pod turskim carstvom su pad osmanlija dozivjel isrbina kao neprijatelja a srbin glupi je turske vazale ostavio na svojoj zemlji!!!

potom se odnos jos vise pogorsavao za srbe, u broju ... srbi misle da poslavši zandarme dolje posle olslobodjenja vladaju tom zemljom , ostavivsi veliku albansku vecinu tamo da im krv pije i bude saradnik austrougara, nemaca i titoista...

tu politku sa zandarmima srbi su nastavili i zavreme slobodana...




mi mozemo to gledati mozda kao da mi nismo imali nista protiv albanaca, vazala turcina? ostavili ih da komtno zive a oni nam zabili noz u ledja više puta posle toga?
pa što ih aleksandar nije najurio 1918?


danas mnogi od njih imaju svoju kupljenu zemlju od srba, na ovakav ili onakav nacine, uglavnom pod prisilom a ne retko su i plaćali veliku cjenu samo kak obi srbin otisao...

danas opet imamo islam na balkanu, turska je ratom u bosni ponovo stupila na balkan... i opet cem obiti grnaicari od turske ekspanzije?
pored vasingtona postoji i taj vasington u ankari...

1912 smo napravili herojski trijumf , NAJVEĆU SAMOOBMANU , NIJE POSTOJALA SVEST DA KOSOVO VIŠE NIJE ETNIČKI SRPSKO I DA SU SRBI MANJINA!!!

albanci su sebe smatrali vlasnicima teritorije kojom su gospodarile osmanlije, oni su bili turska vazalna vojska.
OSLOBODIOCI KOSOVA NISU RAZUMELI DA JE STARA SRBIJAVISPUNJENAVNACIONALNOM ROMANSOM I OBICNA GEOGRAFSKA SINTAGMA...


OSLOBODIOCI NISU SHVATILI DA JE KOSOVO SVETA SRPSKA ZEMLJA SAMO U POEZIJI I HRISTIJANIZOVNAOM KOLEKTIVNOM PAMĆENJU.
ŠIPTARI VAZALI TURAKA SU SE OSETILI POROBLJENIMA OD SRBA... srbi su za šiptare oslobodili osmanlijsko kosovo...

naseljavanjem iz albanije uz prisutne albance psole turaka, i demografskom eksplozijom u titoizmu je prakticno kosovo izgubljeno...

ali ne , mi smo nastavii verovati u ono iz pesme da nam je dovoljno!!!

da je dovoljn oreci sveta srpska zemlja, i da cemo opet ratovati za nju i zandarmimam tamo uzeti vlast...

uzimali smo ali nismo se resavali turskih vazala koji su to dovedeni...



onda smo ih se mogli rjesiti , jer su bili na silu psotvaljeni ako turska vazalna vojska dovedena iz albanije i proterivnaje mturaka morali smo proterati i njihovu kompletnu vojsku...

i albance...

danas oni imaju nekretnine us vom vlasnistvu i nije bas demokratski doci oterati ga i oteti mu zar ne?


ne kazem daleko bilo da treba pokloniti , jer ipak tu srbija ima svoj istorijski identitet, i ne trzae on idzaba da srbiaj prizna kosovo jer bi americko nasilje opravdali time u svjetu...

no zelim da ukazem na najvecu gresku i ono sto zanemarujemo...

kao neku novu strategiju plan za buducnosti šta i kako...

ali ozbiljno an e samo preko pjesama poput "vidovdan" kad se nazderete na slavi, i pijani trbaunjate teske i bolne poznate stihove pa vam proradi istorijska fikcija oko kosova koje prakticno sami glupavi izgubismo bas tim oslobodjenjem 1912...


zato se moramo u pamet , šta i kako...

naravno ne dozvoliti vucicu da zavrsi za sta je placen...

ali znajte EU je samo fikcija, ona je tu ako kao poslusni vazali se svega odreknete...

i sta sa albancima kada jednom opet oslobodite to kosovo ?

prvo treba dobro smisliti kako i sta psoel tog oslobodjenja ?
Srbija nije podeljena ‘74 vec mnogo ranije, ili mozda pod Srbijom smatramo samo ono sto su komunisti odredili. Nekada treba priznati istinu iako mozda nije na tvojoj strani. Po turskim popisima iz kasnog 19 i ranog 20 vjeka siptari su bili apsolutna vecina na Kosmetu. Po zapisima Tucovica i mnogih drgih Srba nad siptarima su izvrseni masovni zlocini. Ni siptari nisu bili nista bolji ali ne treba tvrditi kako ih je drzava Srbija prigrlila sebi kada to nije istina. Iskreno bi voleo da mi neko objasni po cemu je Kosmet srpskiji od Sjeverne Albanije, Crne Gore ili Hercegovine koje su prapostojbine Srba na Balkanu i mnogo duze u posjedstvu Srba. Isto tako kako drugima trazimo mane treba da priznamo da smo Bugare prvo mi napadali, a kasnije nepravedno sa ostalima proterali iz Makedonije, Sjeverne Grcke itd hde su opet oni po popisima Turaka bili apsolutna vecina. Srbi su nepravedno izgubili BiH i RSK gde je srpski narod bio u vecini i to je to.

Lately a number of curious events have been unfolding in Kosovo. On September 13, it was reported that the fate of the land’s rich coalfields had been decided. An investigation into the matter conducted by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) revealed that the right to the fields were to be given over to Canada’s Envidity Energy chaired by retired General Wesley Clark. Although the deal is not yet final and surprises may happen – for one, the opposition party Alliance for the Future of Kosovo is keen to derail it – it might be the right time to look into the economic aspects of the foreign presence in the region.
Kosovan Resources
Researchers understood the economic importance of the land back when the international recognition of Kosovo independence was still a recent issue. According to Elena Ponomaryova, the overall value of the region’s mineral resources (as estimated by the World Bank) exceeds $19 billion. Estimated lignite reserves are between 8.3 and 14 million tonnes, with 42.2 million tonnes of zinc ore reserves, 13.3 million tonnes of nickel and cobalt, 1.7 million tonnes of bauxite and 5.4 million tonnes of magnesite [1]. Thus, the economic and resource aspects of the foreign presence in the region are certainly a contributing factor, as are alongside military, political and transit considerations.



www.aljazeera.com



Envidity has considerable reserves of brown coal and lignite, which begs the question: “Who would need that much coal in an age where everyone is striving to reduce emissions (highlighted by the recently signed Paris Agreement) and increase energy efficiency. First of all, Kosovo is a territory with a population of over 1.8 million people in a region where conventional energy resources are expected to remain on top for a long time to come. Secondly, let us try to illustrate the answer through the company’s business profile.



According to the Envidity website, the company has two major areas of activity: geological exploration and building CLT (coal-to-liquid) plants. This technology, alongside GTL (gas-to-liquid) technology, involves a process to convert conventional coal and gas production waste to liquid fuels. Development of the technology dates back to the 1920–1930s. Its main purpose was to increase production quality and find an alternative to conventional energy resources – a particularly pressing task for the United States and Germany, whose mechanized units faced frequent fuel shortages during World War 2.



Although today the general view of similar current projects remains either overly optimistic or highly sceptical (as evidenced by the shale gas narrative), developments in this area cannot be dismissed entirely. Some research is being conducted, and the results, if there are any, will benefit those who had a good head start. It also goes without saying that an alluring slogan might just as well be a smokescreen for other activities.
Wesley Clark

theintercept.com


Let us say a few words about the Envidity leadership. The company’s chairman is widely considered to be the retired General Wesley Clark. During the breakup of Yugoslavia, Wesley Clark was known as an advisor to Assistant Secretary State Richard Holbrooke, who handled the Bosnia and Herzegovina crisis. Clark was also the NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe (1997–2000); he was the one who issued the order to open fire on Russian paratroopers in Pristina, an order that was not followed through. Upon retiring from the army, Clark briefly took part in the 2004 presidential race as a Democratic candidate. He later withdrew from political life to set up a consulting agency and write a number of books. Today, he is campaigning against Donald Trump and using alarmist rhetoric against Russia. Clark became interested in investment during his student years at Oxford, where he obtained, among other qualifications, a degree in economics. However, according to Bloomberg, he does not enjoy a particularly good reputation in the financial world, and his equity stakes are certainly a red flag for any prudent investor [2]. This means that we are possibly dealing with a fortune-seeker who has been given his share of the limelight rather than an evil genius of the Kosovan economy.
Economic Presence in a Broader Context
In fact, the business interests of retired U.S. military officials and diplomats have been a moot question for a long time. In 2008, the German magazine Der Spiegel published a critical essay on the matter, offering the perspective of a German governor unable to counteract the multiple corrupt and gang connections of Americans in the Kosovo administration [3]. In 2012, The New York Times also published an article on the matter [4]. The most mentioned name in the latter is that of Wesley Clark, while others include former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, diplomat James W. Pardew, Mark Tavlarides (a high-ranking official with the U.S. National Security Council in the Clinton administration). We should not forget about General Schook, a member of the UN mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), who tried to turn the former leader of the Kosovo liberation army Ramush Haradinaj acquitted by a Hague Tribunal into a political figure.



Yet, it would be simplifying matters to say that the best spoils went to the American authors of Kosovo’s independence (eternalized in the names of streets in Pristina). This much is obvious from the case of privatization of Kosovo’s telecommunication company Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK). The most likely buyer of 75 per cent of the shares was indeed slated to be the Albright Stonebridge Group (chaired by Madeleine Albright). But, according to information from 2013, the company eventually went to an international consortium comprising British Telecom and two investment companies of questionable origin (Germany’s Axos Capital and the U.S.-based Najafi Companies). Due to a lack of data, it is impossible to make any judgement on the shareholding structure, and it could be very diverse, based not only on the right of the winning side, but also on various compromises and agreements that have been entangling the property over the past eight years.



The point can also be proven by the situation around Clark’s company: while it has been showing interest in Kosovo’s mineral reserves since 2012 [5], it has not been able to claim ownership so far. Interestingly, Envidity has met resistance from the opposition party Alliance for the Future of Kosovo led by Ramush Haradinaj, who had previously been advised by another U.S. general. Apparently, there is certain competition. This, however, has not prevented the government of Kosovo from granting rights to not only U.S., but also German, Austrian and other national businesses. Rather, it is probably evidence of a more general phenomenon: the neo-colonial appropriation of resources, property and manpower [6].



In any case, with the arrival of foreign capital in Kosovo, the country’s economy has been subjected to interesting experiments that are worth a few studies into its economic and political history. Meanwhile, the problem cannot be considered through the prism of certain individual fortune-seekers, but rather by using a systemic approach.

Ms. Albright responded to an interview request with a statement. Citing limits to disclosure during the tender process, the statement from Nelson Oliveira, managing director and general counsel of Albright Capital Management, read in part, “We take seriously all of our obligations — legal and ethical, in this and all other potential investments.”
“We believe that a transparent, well managed privatization of the state-owned telecom company should bring substantial benefits to the economy and people of Kosovo,” the statement added.
Kosovo’s government denied that any of the former diplomats got special treatment. “I hope they will make money in Kosovo and that Kosovo will make money from their investments,” said Deputy Foreign Minister Petrit Selimi. “The Kosovo government will not choose a company just because it’s American.”
Telecommunications in Kosovo can be a rough business. In 2007, gunmen tried — first with firearms, then with a mortar attack on his car — to kill Anton Berisha, the head of the telecommunications regulatory agency. He survived both attempts, which took place not long after he awarded Kosovo’s second cellphone license to the Slovenian-owned IPKO. A year later, he became ambassador to Slovenia.
In 2004, Ms. Albright became a special adviser to the chairman of the board of IPKO, Akan Ismaili, who is now Kosovo’s ambassador to the United States.

The telecommunications deal is just one of many that Americans have angled for. The biggest infrastructure project in Kosovo’s post-Yugoslav history, a 63-mile stretch of highway connecting Pristina to the Albanian border, was awarded in 2010 to Bechtel of San Francisco in a joint venture with a Turkish company, Enka.

At the time, the prime minister estimated the deal at $1 billion.
Bechtel had help getting the contract from Mr. Tavlarides, the legislative director at the National Security Council during the 1999 Kosovo intervention. According to a lobbying report filed with the United States government, Mr. Tavlarides lobbied on behalf of Bechtel in Kosovo on “highway-related issues” while working for Van Scoyoc Associates, a Washington-based lobbying firm.
Mr. Tavlarides now works at the Podesta Group, which signed a $50,000 monthly contract with the Kosovo government on Jan. 1, advising it on communications and strengthening Kosovo’s ties to the United States government. The Podesta Group was co-founded as Podesta Associates by John Podesta, White House chief of staff in Mr. Clinton’s second term. Mr. Podesta left the firm in 1993. It is still owned by his brother, Anthony.
Mr. Tavlarides declined to comment, citing his firm’s policy to not speak with the news media about clients.
For his part, General Clark said it was “insulting” to suggest that there could be any conflict between private profit-making and his past responsibilities. “My business is aboveboard, transparent and helps the Kosovar people,” he said. “We are going to use a resource that had no value to the Kosovo people and bring in hundreds of millions of dollars of investment.”
United States military officers have a one-year post-retirement ban on contacting their former armed service about official matters, and a lifetime ban on any contacts related to the same matters on which they worked, according to the Pentagon.

Watchdog groups raise the possibility that Kosovo’s government might see doing business with former American officials as a conduit to the current United States administration. They also fear that the influence of former officials diminishes competition and hurts consumers.
The appearance of an inside track by some companies had discouraged competitors “because they know the game is set,” said Avni Zogiani, a Kosovar journalist who heads Cohu, an anticorruption organization in Pristina that has investigated the links between the telecommunications business, crime and politics. “There is no interest in investing in Kosovo by reputable companies anymore.”
Even some former officials acknowledge discomfort at the extent of the interplay between dealing and diplomacy.
Steven P. Schook, a retired United States army brigadier general and former chief of staff of KFOR, NATO’s force in Kosovo, said he had “mixed feelings” about it.
Mr. Schook, who also served as the deputy head of the United Nations mission in Kosovo, has returned as a private consultant for former Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, who was acquitted last month by the war crimes tribunal in The Hague. He says that he works for Mr. Haradinaj because of a belief in his leadership and that his only compensation is his expenses living in Kosovo, about $2,600 a month.
“There are a lot of ex-diplomats coming in and out that are now representing private interests,” he said. “If I’m a large corporation and I want to get in to be competitive, I want to work with people to help me do that.”
“But on the other hand, it seems a bit tawdry,” Mr. Schook added. “One minute you’re liberating a place, and the next minute you’re trying to get an energy tender.”
