Aren't you aware that your group was issuing certifiably insane 
commentary like this?

Nonetheless, the KLA must know, as in fact it has indicated, that the 
Western imperialist powers are their enemy.

The only force able to offer any protection to the Kosovar people 
remains the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which the Western powers have 
consistently said they were determined not to aid in any way. They have 
done everything they were politically able to do to block its growth.

In light of these verbiage, I would caution you about calling Achcar an 
imperialist stooge.
