What a difference a day makes

The new trinity of the post-Milosevic nationalist Serb leadership.

Also, unless you live under a rock, you probably know that several embassies in Belgrade, including the US Embassy were attacked by rioters.

And the response from B92 regarding the recent threats they have experienced.

Serb terrorist organization "Young Bosnia" (same name as Gavrilo Princip's group that assasinated Archduke Franz Ferninand in Sarajevo and started WWI) recently took responsibility for grenade attacks on Mercator mall in Belgrade and EU mission HQ in Mitrovica.

The attack on the U.S. embassy (and other embassies in Belgrade) is a terrorist act. If Muslims attacked the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo, then the media would call our people "terrorists". But when Serbian terrorists attack and burn down embassies, they are called rioters, mobs, thugs, protesters... In fact, they are not rioters, mobs, thugs, and protesters - they are Serbian terrorists.

*Cough*... but it seems that the term "terrorist" is reserved only for Muslims. This is the kind of outrageous double standard applied in the Western media.

Good people of Kosovo suffered greatly under the Serbian terrorism in old Yugoslavia and especially in the 1990's when Serbia lost 4 major wars. Even today, we see that Serb terrorists enage in terrorist acts against Kosovo by burning down border crossings with the newly recognized country of Kosovo, they attack U.N. compounds, and other terroristic acts.

It is important that the West remains united in fully supporting Kosovo’s independence from Serbia.
The Western powers must stand up to any threats from Belgrade and Moscow and support full membership for Kosovo in the United Nations.

At the same time, firm guarantees must be given by both the European Union and NATO that the Serbian minority will be protected and given full rights in a newly independent Kosovo, as already pledged by Kosovo’s Prime Minister.

It is especially important that there is no retribution by ethnic Albanians that would encourage increased nationalism in Serbia or even an attempt by Serbs in Republika Srpska to break away from Bosnia.

More than 90 percent of Kosovo’s 2.1 million residents are ethnic Albanians; Serbs make up a tiny minority.

There is no realistic alternative to independence for the province, a political reality that both Serbia and Russia must accept.

Can't believe I find myself agreeing with the "Director of Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, and Margaret Thatcher Senior Research Fellow". The name of the woman who cleansed me from my home as she handed over Docklands to her friends. But she did get Bosnia right.
