The article below from the Canadian National Post is an indication of what 
I argued the other day, that the Albanians are loosing the favour of their 
imperialist masters.

The author Maj-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie (ret.) commanded UN troops in Bosnia 
in 1992.

We bombed the wrong side?

By Lewis MacKenzie


The objective of the Albanians is to purge all non-Albanians, including 
the international community's representatives, from Kosovo and ultimately 
link up with mother Albania thereby achieving the goal of "Greater 
Albania." The campaign started with their attacks on Serbian security 
forces in the early 1990s and they were successful in turning Milosevic's 
heavy-handed response into worldwide sympathy for their cause. There was 
no genocide as claimed by the West -- the 100,000 allegedly buried in mass 
graves turned out to be around 2,000, of all ethnic origins, including 
those killed in combat during the war itself.

The Kosovo-Albanians have played us like a Stradivarius. We have 
subsidized and indirectly supported their violent campaign for an 
ethnically pure and independent Kosovo. We have never blamed them for 
being the perpetrators of the violence in the early '90s and we continue 
to portray them as the designated victim today in spite of evidence to the 
contrary. When they achieve independence with the help of our tax dollars 
combined with those of bin Laden and al-Qaeda, just consider the message 
of encouragement this sends to other terrorist-supported independence 
movements around the world.

Funny how we just keep digging the hole deeper!
