Kosovo and the crisis of ignoring international law and global opinions

Kosovo and the Crisis of Ignoring International Law and Global Opinions

Kosovo obtained part independence when America and many European nations gave the go ahead for the creation of this new nation. However, it is clear that things are not plain sailing because many other nations did not support this elitist adventure, therefore, the wider international community was ignored. Therefore, today we have a situation where some nations support this new state, however, the majority of nations in Africa, Asia, and South America, have not given their consent.

Also, the Russian Federation, Spain, and some other European nations, refuse to accept this American led adventure. Therefore, what does the future hold for Kosovo and international law?

Firstly, the current status of limbo is a shock to America and many European nations because they believed that the majority of other nations would follow suit, however, at the moment this isn`t happening. Therefore, the influence of the Russian Federation, China, India, and other nations who are against the independence of Kosovo, is much deeper than America imagined. Also, many nations are aghast by the elitism of this new venture and of course many nations worry that the same may happen to them.

Another negative side effect is the fact that Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia have clear justifications to claim the same rights, with regards to the American model of bypassing international law and the United Nations. So if America can violate international law so easily, then America should expect other nations to follow suit. Therefore, many other would be nations in other parts of the world also claim to have the same natural rights. Of course the United States, the United Kingdom, and others, are claiming that Kosovo is unique, but this is not based on reality because you have too many conflicts all over the world. So a “can of worms” is the real cause and effect of this naive policy.

Nations which are against this American led venture have stated clearly that they are very unhappy with the blatant attitude of elitist Western nations. The Foreign Minister of Argentina, Jorge Taiana, stated “if we were to recognise Kosovo, which has declared its independence unilaterally, without an agreement with Serbia, we would set a dangerous precedent that would seriously threaten our chances of a political settlement in the case of the Falkland Islands.”

The newly elected President of Cyprus, Dimitris Christofias, was even more outspoken because he stated “The one thing that Kosovo and Cyprus have in common, as far as the situation in these regions is concerned, is that in both cases, the basic principles of international law and legality, as well as UN decisions, are constantly being violated.” A similar comment was made by Miguel Angel Moratinos, the Spanish Foreign Minister, because he made it clear that “the Government of Spain will not recognise the unilateral act proclaimed by the assembly of Kosovo […] We will not recognise because we consider […] this does not respect international law.”

Therefore, this issue is very important and complex and it is not about denying either the majority Kosovo Albanians independence or supporting minorities like the Serbians, Roma, and other minorities in Kosovo. It is about a deeper issue and this applies to international law. So if America and her supporters can justify Kosovo then what about creating new independent nations for the Abkhazians and South Ossetians in Georgia, Palestinians, Karen in Myanmar, Tamils in Sri Lanka, West Papuans in Indonesia, Basques in Spain, Balochis in Pakistan, and the list can go on and on; so do these ethnic groups deserve independence?

This is the problem because you can not seriously claim that Kosovo is special or unique. After all, you have countless conflicts in the world and many ethnic groups face terrible persecution. Therefore, many other ethnic groups are aghast by events and Yasser Abed Rabbo, a Palestinian politician, stated “Kosovo is not better than us. We deserve independence even before Kosovo, and we ask for the backing of the United States and the European Union for our independence. If things are not going in the direction of continuous and serious negotiations, then we should take the step and announce our independence unilaterally.”

Also, the international community, on a whole, is saying that this colonial attitude is really not warrented and of course major institutions, like the United Nations, have been violated and the same applies to international law. So we have a genuine dilemma over this issue and again if the United Nations and international law can be violated, then why have either? Sadly, nations like the United States believe that they are above the international community because they also bypassed international law when they attacked Iraq and bombed the former Yugoslavia.

You also have problems within Kosovo itself and major divisions still exist. This especially applies to northern Kosovo because the Serbian community is relatively sizeable throughout this region. Therefore, you still have major flashpoints and Serbians, the Roma, and other minorities, feel isolated or abandoned. Also, the international community must still guard and protect Serbians, the Roma, and other minorities, throughout the whole of Kosovo. This in itself is evidence that the institutions of Kosovo are weak.

Therefore, the longer this situation remains in limbo the worse it will get because we have already seen convulsions in Georgia based on the Kosovo model. Whereby nations can now clearly state that America, the United Kingdom, France, and others, violated international law, therefore, other nations can follow suit and support their own self interests. So what does the future hold for Kosovo, countless other conflicts throughout the world, the United Nations, and international law?

Bosnia and Clinton’s radical Islamists

Bosnia and Clinton’s Radical Islamists

Bill Clinton in Bosnia
US President Bill Clinton speaks to U.S. service men and women deployed to Tuzla Air Base, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Jan. 13, 1996. President Clinton is visiting U.S. service men and women deployed to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Hungary as part of the NATO Implementation Force (IFOR) in Operation Joint Endeavor.

In all wars you have distortions and of course no single ethnic group or religious group is immune from slaughtering others during times of war. Yet the wars in the former Yugoslavia were distorted to the point of national shame, and this national shame applies to so-called democratic leaders, like former US President Bill Clinton, and a host of others, who gave their tacit approval for Islamists to have a free-reign in Bosnia.

During the conflict we had world leaders who were pleading the cause of radical Islam by showing “a gentle side” to the pluralistic Muslims of Bosnia. However, if you scratch under the surface then you will find out that tens of thousands of radical Islamists were allowed to enter Bosnia in order to slaughter innocent Christians.

Yes, many Muslims indeed were very moderate and you had moderates on all sides, however, you had “a hidden darkness” which was not shown to the world. The reasons for this are obvious because it is hard to plead the side of any ethnic or religious group when they are beheading and mutilating innocent Christians. Therefore, you had a major collusion between democrats, radical Islamists, national self interests, secret agencies, the mass media, and others, in order to distort the “real picture.”

Before I go further, I will clearly state now that all sides committed terrible atrocities and no ethnic or religious group is “cleaner than white.” In history, all wars will bring out the “dark forces” in humanity which appears to be embedded within the psyche of many people and of course history runs deep within the veins of injustice and revenge or “a just cause” can lead to mass barbarity beyond our deepest thoughts.

The story of brutal Christian Serbs was highlighted daily during the Bosnian war. After all, you have to dehumanize a whole people in the West in order to enforce long term objectives and it is vital to manipulate the mass media because they are part and parcel of the propaganda machine.

Yet I am going to write about the “hidden hand” of democratic forces that sponsored or gave tacit approval for radical Islamists to slaughter Christians at random. Also, not content with this, the same Bosnian Muslim leadership then gave passports to many radical Islamists after the war.

Sky News has obtained clear and proper evidence of a major cover-up and footages of massacres against Serbian Christians have been seen. According to the investigation and footages which were shown, it is abundantly clear that thousands of radical Islamists from all over the world were given a free-reign in Bosnia.

This free-reign meant that innocent Serbian Christians were to meet terrible and disturbing deaths at the hands of radical Islamists who celebrate openly while cutting the heads off innocent civilians. The same Islamic forces which unleashed September 11th and which stone people to death in order to create “year zero,” were welcomed openly by ex-President Clinton and by people within his administration.

The Republican Policy Committee on January 16, 1997, which can be viewed by clicking onto http://rpc.senate.gov/releases/1997/iran.htm is damning, to say the least.

The House Subcommittee report concludes on page 2 that “The Administration’s Iranian green light policy gave Iran an unprecedented foothold in Europe and has recklessly endangered American lives and US strategic interests.”

” . . . The Iranian presence and influence [in Bosnia] jumped radically in the months following the green light. Iranian elements infiltrated the Bosnian government and established close ties with the current leadership in Bosnia and the next generation of leaders. Iranian Revolutionary Guards accompanied Iranian weapons into Bosnia and soon were integrated in the Bosnian military structure from top to bottom as well as operating in independent units throughout Bosnia. The Iranian intelligence service [VEVAK] ran wild through the area developing intelligence networks, setting up terrorist support systems, recruiting terrorist ’sleeper’ agents and agents of influence, and insinuating itself with the Bosnian political leadership to a remarkable degree. The Iranians effectively annexed large portions of the Bosnian security apparatus [known as the Agency for Information and Documentation (AID)] to act as their intelligence and terrorist surrogates. This extended to the point of jointly planning terrorist activities. The Iranian embassy became the largest in Bosnia and its officers were given unparalleled privileges and access at every level of the Bosnian government.” (Page 201)

The report does not just focus on the role of Iran because you had various interested parties who desired to spread radical Islam in Europe. Of course, the Western mass media went along with the compliant information that they were given and many liberals wouldn’t want to focus on the plight of the Serbian population.

Therefore, it is important to read the report because it highlights the mass injustices of the Bosnian war and how people view what really happened.

“To understand how the Clinton green light would lead to this degree of Iranian influence, it is necessary to remember that the policy was adopted in the context of extensive and growing radical Islamic activity in Bosnia. That is, the Iranians and other Muslim militants had long been active in Bosnia; the American green light was an important political signal to both Sarajevo and the militants that the United States was unable or unwilling to present an obstacle to those activities — and, to a certain extent, was willing to cooperate with them. In short, the Clinton Administration’s policy of facilitating the delivery of arms to the Bosnian Muslims made it the de facto partner of an ongoing international network of governments and organizations pursuing their own agenda in Bosnia: the promotion of Islamic revolution in Europe. That network involves not only Iran but Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan (a key ally of Iran), and Turkey, together with front groups supposedly pursuing humanitarian and cultural activities.”

The report also highlights how radical Islamists like Osama Bin Laden were allowed to fund and cause untold misery in Bosnia. Yet during the conflict I recall that the Bosnian Muslim led leadership were meant to be democratic and beyond suspicion. However, the opposite was the case and many senior leaders welcomed Islamic fanatics to their cause because in truth they had their own secret agenda.

The report continues by stating that “…….one such group about which details have come to light is the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), a Sudan-based, phoney humanitarian organization which has been a major link in the arms pipeline to Bosnia. [“How Bosnia’s Muslims Dodged Arms Embargo: Relief Agency Brokered Aid From Nations, Radical Groups,” Washington Post, 9/22/96; see also “Saudis Funded Weapons For Bosnia, Official Says: $300 Million Program Had U.S. ‘Stealth Cooperation’,” Washington Post, 2/2/96] TWRA is believed to be connected with such fixtures of the Islamic terror network as Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the convicted mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) and Osama Bin laden, a wealthy Saudi emigre believed to bankroll numerous militant groups. [WP, 9/22/96] (Sheik Rahman, a native of Egypt, is currently in prison in the United States; letter bombs addressed to targets in Washington and London, apparently from Alexandria, Egypt, are believed connected with his case. Bin Laden was a resident in Khartoum, Sudan, until last year; he is now believed to be in Afghanistan, “where he has issued statements calling for attacks on U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf.” [WP, 9/22/96])

Therefore, people should open their eyes to the reality of the war in Bosnia and do their own independent research. Also, if the propaganda machine can distort reality so much then what does this say about the mass media in general?

Another serious issue is that past policies by many different American administrations have supported radical Islam and its agenda since the late 1970s. Only after September 11th were serious questions raised yet it is abundantly clear that short-term goals have not only destroyed the lives of many innocents, but these short term goals have endangered people to the radical Islamic menace.

The world was told about Srebrenica and how Serbian forces slaughtered thousands of Muslims. This crime was and is still highlighted in order to justify Western support in Bosnia and it is also manipulated in order to show “goodness” from “evil.”

Without doubt, thousands of Muslims were killed after Srebrenica fell to Serbian forces but the other Srebrenica is not told. This Srebrenica, and the surrounding region, applies to the murder of over 3,800 Christian Serbs who were killed in many barbaric ways.

I am not talking about 3,800 military men. On the contrary, I am talking about 3,800 Serbian women, children, and elderly people. Many of these innocent Serbian Christians were killed by sledgehammers, flamethrowers, and other barbaric means.

This does not justify anything but you can not judge anything unless the bare facts are given. In truth, tens of thousands of innocents, irrespective if Muslim or Christian, were killed during this brutal war.

However, the role of Clinton and others should be told and in an ideal world they should be made accountable for what they did. This most notably applies to what happened in Bosnia but it also applies to helping radical Islam gain a foothold in parts of Europe and how these actions further inspired Islamists to do September 11th and other barbaric actions.
