[Comment] Kosovo, The truth beyond any doubt

Apr 10, 2014

By Samuel Žbogar

"May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears".
(Nelson Mandela)

Ever since the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted the report "Inhuman treatment of people and illicit trafficking in human organs in Kosovo" in January 2011, we – Kosovars and internationals – knew that this day might come; a day when investigation of the events described in the report would lead to possible court procedures. >>>>

Apr 08, 2014

By Stefan Füle

Furthermore, we have identified five key priorities needed for opening negotiations.


(Comment) In ‘European’ Kosovo: One bed for two newborn babies and their mothers

Jan 26, 2014

By Edmond Luma

dtt-net.com, Prishtina - In what is shamefully called ‘European Kosovo’ by the EU’s 'beloved' Prime Minister of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, and his brainwashed servants, newborn ‘European’ babies in the maternity unit of Prishtina's public hospital are being obliged to share a single bed. Their vulnerable mothers too.

PM Thaçi, if informed about this kind of treatment of his ‘New Europeans’, would certainly call it: a ‘European treatment of new Europeans”. And, of course, according to some lawmakers in Washington and Brussels, he should be awarded a new Nobel Prize named: the ‘NOBEL PRIZE of SHAME’…

KOSOVO - the named, aborted, crushed and abandoned baby

Jan 16, 2014

By Ekrem Krasniqi

dtt-net.com, Skenderaj / Kosovo – On 16 February 2011 I believed that “The EU and US should take power in Kosovo” (http://euobserver.com/opinion/31813). Eighteen months later, on 16 August 2012 I dreamed that “Kosovo needs special partnership with Germany” (http://euobserver.com/opinion/117248).

But today on 17 January 2014 I’m finally convinced that it’s too late for both (I hope that I’m wrong here) and that the famous sentence ‘better ever than never” has no meaning here in the birthplace of Adem Jashari and of his children - slaughtered by the military and police of former boss of current EU’s ‘moderate’ interlocutor in Serbia, Ivica Dacic.

The eyes of the EU – U.S. baby country may have seen some light for few days in 2008, but both its brain and its fragile skeleton have been brutally crashed and abandoned at the doorstep of the EU’s promised highway by Jashari's former KLA co-fighter, Hashim Thaçi and his closest associates ...
