The expert speaks
Oh, good, the voice of Serbia is again heard on the subjects of peace and independence. Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica today called Kosovo's moves toward independence "illegal" and called for more negotiations. We can be sure of one thing -- they know of what they speak, NOT! Serbia and Montenegro are what's left of the former Yugoslavia, which broke up in a horrible war more than 15 years ago. More than 200,000 people died after Croatia and Bosnia declared independence from Belgrade. Do you remember the death and destruction and 'ethnic cleansing,' and the war crimes trial of the late Slobodon Milosevic? Now, Serbia is trying to force Kosovo, which still is under the protection of the United Nations, to stay in its union with Montenegro. NATO forces bombed Serbia in 1999 to force Serbia to pull out its troops and stop killing Kosovo's ethnic Albanians. Kosovo is expected to declare its independence next month.
