Kosovo Conflict

January 29, 1999

The area of Kosovo is in Serbia. Which means Kosovo is Serbian territory. There happens to be an Albanian majority in this little southwest corner of Serbia. The Albanians decide to create a terrorist organization to use as a political weapon. This political weapon is called the Kosovo Liberation Army, to gain some kind of world recognition. This political weapon in Kosovo provokes the Yugoslav government by killing and wounding local Serbian police. The Yugoslav government then goes to its own backyard to stop the killing and in return more Serbian police get ambushed. The Yugoslav government decides to go in again to eliminate this political weapon and to say that this type of murderous provocation must stop now.

So the next time you hear of or see another Albanian mortality, know that it was caused by another terrorist and political provocation.

By now Serbia's leadership has found that all of NATO's threats are mere saber-rattling and hardly worthy of consideration. The only real hope the people of Kosovo have is to discover oil. Then U.S. armed forces will be in the Adriatic in a flash and will be shooting missiles at Belgrade in a week.
