NATO bombing - Serbia an innocent bystander, minding her own business.

Lots of posts on various blogs crying about the NATO bombing because of the 15-year anniversary.

Serbia is kind of like this guy who can't get over the fact that his girlfriend dumped him, moved out and called the cops.  Now, 15 years later, he sits around, underemployed in his squalid apartment crying about what an ingrate lying bitch his ex was, how she was better off when she was with him and how they'll be together again one day - maybe when the cops in charge of protecting her 24/7 decide that their job is over.

  1. just becouse you wanted not to be anonimysApril 1, 2014 at 11:45 PM

    Well hello there i will tell you one thing you are terribly wrong about that, you see those people the disgousting serbs as you present us yeah some of us dont cry only when its aniversary some of us cry every day becouse you see many people have been killed while bombing. I will tell you one of the stories thats stuck with me and the worst part is ther has been so many cases similar to that one but we just havent heard for them. See there was a little girl called milica and she was 4 at the time of nato bombing and she was sitting on a potty when a bomb fell far away but all that crap like shrapnel pieces fell on her thry the windows and poor girl was dead on the spot.And now tell me do you really think hers family only cries on aniversary of bombing well no they cry and they grief every they. The conclusion is i dont care if you hate serbia or write all of thoe texts but please have some humanity and dont be so insensitive becouse you weren there and you havent been through it like some of us had to experience that horrible horrible thing becouse it would be the same if i wrote texts about twin towers and laugh to people who are griefing. And just to make it clear i am very sad about twin towers many people lost their loved ones and i sad that so my words arent taken out of contest.

    1. difference is, of course, 9/11 wasn't in response to the USA oppressing a minority in one of their provinces and creating an apartheid situation for 10 years.

    2. How many Kosovar Albanian "Milica's" are there?

      of course Milica's death is a tragedy, but what led up to it?

      Serbs talk about the bombing as though it's something that just happened to happen to them while they were on the potty, minding their own business.

    3. never ever change the way of thinking, they hate entire human kind and they are the sky nation (very similar nation like Arabs). Once upon a time, a Serbian was asking an Albanian, could you kill your own child for the cause of nation and country? Albanian replied to him saying no, never, and Serbian told him, than you will never win because we Serbs, we can do that. Pretending to be victim 24/7, committing all the unimaginable atrocities, massacres and trying blindly to convince the world that Serbs are pure nation and everybody is against them, it is just insane. For Gods sake, when you do evil things, how in earth you expect to get rewarded with good things? Genocide was done by Serbs all over ex Yugoslavia, cutting with knife the stomach of pregnant mother and taking the unborn child out of stomach in purpose, planned and with intention and child killed (I feel sorry for all the children of the world) by shrapnel accidentally, it is different. All over the world children are getting killed non intentionally. like in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and every other place that has terrorists, just remember who used human shields in Balkan's wars? Of course, Serbia, same as the terrorists do every time. Serbs have been using priests blessings before they went to kill, rape and burn everything what is not Serbian, what kind of religion is that? Madness and insanity in Serbian common (non) sense continues for centuries. Before the wars in Balkans, a Serbian men was yelling in the downtown of Zagreb, I am Serbian, I am Serbian, and then the old woman passing by near, told him, I am sorry for you my son, it is not our fault!

  2. 9/11 was an inside job and gave U.S. license for "infinite war" which George Bush junior said with a smile.

    And you are ignorant that it was the Albanians who started the killing in Kosovo. The KLA was kidnapping and killing civilians. They were caught with a makeshift crematoria trying to burn bodies of a massacre in Klecka of mostly Serbs but also a few Albanians who didn't support the KLA.

    The biggest killer of Albanians before the NATO bombing was the KLA which was carrying out assassinations of Albanians who had government jobs.

    The ENTIRE KLA leadership was indicted for crimes against other Albanians. Only witnesses were killed and much of it done right under the noses of the international community (KFOR, UN, foreign staff). There was no protection for Albanians witnesses against KLA crimes.

    In the run-up to Ramush Haradinaj's trial there was the murder and suspicious accidents/suicides of 19 Albanian witnesses or their family members.

    After which, of course there were no witnesses to testify because they were killed off or scared off.

    The KLA had torture camps all over Kosovo - every single commander did and it was the only way they would get promoted.

    Also, the KLA killed Roma and a Roma organization has a list of hundreds of Roma killed by the KLA which are being falsely claimed as Albanians killed by Serbs.

    So Albanians even pad their victimhood by stealing Roma victims of their own KLA.

    P.S. There's a Kosovo-Albanian in the news today for carrying out a suicide bombing in IRAQ of all places. Says he killed 52 Iraqi soldiers and police. And remember now the U.S. is supporting that army so it's not something the U.S. wants now.

    P.P.S. 3 Albanians were arrested last week for the killing of 2 Turkish soldiers and a policeman in a drive-by shooting using a long-barreled gun and a rented car. It was a purposeful hit.
    These Albanians had been fighting in Syria.

    The Albanians and Bosnian Muslims have both joined the terrorist groups in Syria committing atrocities in a nation far from their homes.

    1. and the KLA just happened like that for no reason? Poor Serbs just minding their own business and KLA happened because they hate Serbs?

      I can't stand this mealy-mouthed prevarication. As though the anti-bureaucratic revolution of 1989, the closure of Albanians schools, the removal of most Albanians from the public service just never happened.

      The KLA arose because of Serbia policies.

      and what's the logic of your PSs? Albanians are rotten so Serbs were right to crush them?

      Odious Serbian logic

    2. There was violence against the Serbs for decades and decades. In 1989 when Milosevic said to Serbs they won't be beaten anymore he was referring to the Albanian police who were beating Serbs down there.
      Even the New York Times in the early 1980's published articles on violence of the Albanians towards Serbs and spoke of "sleeper cells" there. Albanians long aspired to a Greater Albania and besides Kosovo, they wanted parts of Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Southern Serbia and some even wanted parts of the "heel" of Italy.

      The New York Times article mentioned how Serbs were leaving under violence of the Albanians.
      It wrote of an Albanian conscript who murdered several of his sleeping bunk mates - sleeping Yugoslav soldiers. And most of them were non-Serbs - Slovene, Slovene-Croat, Bosniak-Croat, etc.
      In WWII the Kosovo Albanians welcomed the Germans and they killed Serbs. In WWI they were killing Serbs.
      In Ottoman times the Turks had to actual escort of protect Serbs and others on journeys due to Albanian banditry. The Turks even TOLD ALBANIANS TO NOT KILL SO MANY SERBS AS IT WAS EATING INTO THEIR TAX COLLECTION BASE. The Serbs were heavily taxed and large parts of their harvests went to the Ottoman Empire. So that's why the Turks tried to get the Albanians to calm down.

    3. the only logical response to these individual instances of lawbreaking is to strip the civil rights of certain people based on ethnicity and setting up an apartheid state in one of your province.

      I think a lot of states could learn a lot from Serbia about how to run a state.

  3. Also in the news today was an Albanian taking hostage a Lufthansa flight attendant with a razor blade. He was being deported when he wanted to claim asylum in Germany.
    So even though Kosovo is now run by Albanians and the "international community" Albanians are still leaving for other countries and claiming asylum.

    Also, it was an Albanian who killed the U.S. airmen at a German airport three years ago. And he would have killed more if his gun didn't jam and he wasn't tackled by another quick-thinking airman. They said he even shouted that Allah Akbar statement of Muslims jihading.
    You had the "Fort Dix Six" Albanians plotting a terrorist take in the U.S. and there've been others arrested for terrorism attempts in the U.S.

    The Albanians were/are violent tools of foreign powers (of course sometimes they "blowback" on their masters as Albos are rather wild).

    The Greeks grotesquely tortured an Albanian prisoner to death after he had stabbed and killed a Greek guard to death (he severed the Greek's windpipe) simply because the Albanian was angry he wasn't let out to see his mother in Italy.

    And Albanians were involved in Croatia's and Bosnia's war, killing Serbs. They had a war in the summer 2001 with Macedonians until the west created the Ohrid Agreement. But even with that some of the try to spark a war such as when Albanians murdered teenage boys who were fishing just about 2 years.
    After they were caught, one was hear saying that they should have just attacked policeman. So it was premeditated murder of the Macedonian teens.

    Albanians were/are PROXIES in wars engineered by the west.

    Key western countries engineered the break-up of Yugoslavia and the wars at Serbs and Serbia's expense. There is plenty of evidence if you search.

    As well you have had UN officers testifying and writing on how Bosnian Muslims, for example, staged attacks and would murder their own ethnic group, including children, to have Serbs blamed.

    See a book called "The Sharp End: A Canadian Soldier's Story" by James R. Davis.
    He details many incidents of them sniping, provoking, staging, mortaring children in the street just below the building the Canadian soldiers were in...
    There is so much crime the Muslims and Croats did which western mainstream media suppressed or would falsely blame Serbs for.
    Even dead Croatian Serb farmers axed to death by Croat forces were pictured as Croats killed by Serbs despite their full names being known.

    1. oh noes! Albanians doing terrible things all over the world. Milosevic was right to close Albanian schools in 1989!

      Delete
    2. He didn't close their private/illegal schools. Albanians BOYCOTTED state/public schools because they weren't in the Albanian-language. They were demanding their own Albanian-language schools supported by the state.
      What other country does that?

      The U.S. doesn't have public Universities or high schools in anything but the English language. And the U.S. is a wealthy country.

      But despite the boycott by some, still 50% of Albanian students were still going to state-funded schools up until the bombing.
      There is even an interview with an Albanian girl who starts off by saying that she was a student at Pristina University and her brother a high school student on the day the bombing started. I can very likely get you the link to that.

      Plus, before Milosevic took control, the Albanians made it impossible for other ethnicities to get a job.
      A Roma man from Kosovo had to leave for abroad in those times because the Albanians would even put their 12-year-old kids on the job to keep non-Albanians out.
      I'll retrieve the link. Everything I say can be backed up.

    3. They HAD Albanian language schools and they were closed down.

      LOTS of countries have multilingual public educational systems. Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Yugoslavia (Hungarian in Vojvodina) Pretty much every country in the world actually if you count private schools.

  4. Here's a link which has links to 1980's articles on Kosovo violence starting with the riots in 1981 long BEFORE Milosevic was in power: http://emperors-clothes.com/articles/benworks/1980news.html

    This 1987 article from "The New York Times" mentions the Albanian killing four sleeping "Slavic" bunk mates:
    "A young Army conscript of ethnic Albanian origin shot up his barracks, killing four sleeping Slavic bunkmates and wounding six others.

    The army says it has uncovered hundreds of subversive ethnic Albanian cells in its ranks. Some arsenals have been raided.

    Ethnic Albanians in the Government have manipulated public funds and regulations to take over land belonging to Serbs."

    Yep, the Albanians were receiving money from the Yugoslav government and there was even a special tax on Serbian workers' money which went to a fund in Kosovo. The Albanians LONG desired to take over Kosovo for themselves. More from the 1987 article:

    "Slavic Orthodox churches have been attacked, and flags have been torn down. Wells have been poisoned and crops burned. Slavic boys have been knifed, and some young ethnic Albanians have been told by their elders to rape Serbian girls.

    The goal of the radical nationalists among them, one said in an interview, is an ''ethnic Albania that includes western Macedonia, southern Montenegro, part of southern Serbia, Kosovo and Albania itself.'' That includes large chunks of the republics that make up the southern half of Yugoslavia.

    Other ethnic Albanian separatists admit to a vision of a greater Albania governed from Pristina in southern Yugoslavia rather than Tirana, the capital of neighboring Albania."

    "...In one incident, Fadil Hoxha, once the leading politician of ethnic Albanian origin in Yugoslavia, joked at an official dinner in Prizren last year that Serbian women should be used to satisfy potential ethnic Albanian rapists. After his quip was reported this October, Serbian women in Kosovo protested, and Mr. Hoxha was dismissed from the Communist Party.

    Coming three weeks after the ethnic Albanian draftee, Aziz Kelmendi, had slaughtered his Slavic comrades in the barracks at Paracin, the speech struck fear in thousands of families whose sons were about to start their mandatory year of military service."

    So an Albanian politician joked about Serbian women to supply Albanian rapists!

    Even NON-SERB Yugoslav politicians spoke of the troubles in Kosovo BEFORE Milosevic:

    Other Yugoslav politicians have expressed alarm. ''There is no doubt Kosovo is a problem of the whole country, a powder keg on which we all sit,'' said Milan Kucan, head of the Slovenian Communist Party.

  5. Here's what a University educated Roma activist who was living in Kosovo said it was like when Albanians got in control:

    But he found he could not get work in either his chemistry field or in professional soccer because of discrimination against Roma. It was heartbreaking when the Albanians took control, as they began separatism and hired any Albanian - even 12 year old children - to do the work, including adult jobs, because of their Albanian nationality. Anyone not Albanian was out of luck.

  6. What Sani Rifati, the Roma who had to leave Kosovo when the Albanians took over because they wouldn't let any non-Albanian get work (would even use their kids to fill a position) dovetails with more from The New York Times' 1987 article:

    "...Ethnic Albanians already control almost every phase of life in the autonomous province of Kosovo, including the police, judiciary, civil service, schools and factories. Non-Albanian visitors almost immediately feel the independence - and suspicion - of the ethnic Albanian authorities."

  8. "There were problems in Kosovo and the only solution was to impose an authoritarian regime and oppress the majority of the population for 10 years in response."

    The authoritarian regime was against the troublemakers and violent. Albanians were just upset when Serbia took back control of its province since the Albanians wanted to separate it and dominate it themselves - that was/is their goal. Many wanted a Greater Albania and flaunted it. Have you seen the official "Greater Albania" maps? Though now they like to term it "Natural Albania".

    So Albanians pulled stunts, like BOYCOTTING public/state schools and claiming they were being denied and education. They were always able to freely go to those schools.

    Oh, and speaking of free. The Albanians, most of them, didn't pay their utilities yet Milosevic and the Serbian government never cut off their electricity nor water.
    Why in Albania proper there are people disconnected for not paying their bills.

    1. So, looking back. Comparing other countries that have had issues with separatism (Canada, Belgium, now Scotland), would you say the Serbian model is a successful way of dealing with things?

      Delete
    2. Those other countries aren't having armed terrorists kidnapping their people. They don't have separatists running around with mortars, machine guns, grenade launchers, landmines, and anti-aircraft guns like the Albanians and others did.

      By the way there were huge arms smuggling for the separatists BEFORE the wars officially started.
      Britain, U.S., Germany and some others were preparing for the breakup of Yugoslavia - at Serbs' expense.

      I am a non-Serb. I am obsessed with this because I saw through the lies early on. I could see how manipulative and dishonest the media were. They were very phony and pushy about the war. You had these reporters pushing people to "care" yet they themselves had dead emotions or ones that didn't match. They were saying it as if scripted (and I don't doubt they were).
      As I repeat the wars were engineered.
      Those other separatist areas DON'T have the CIA, MI6, BND training them and I don't think that U.S. government operatives and agents are involved with those separatists either.
      Those aren't of much interest and on the agenda as was the breakup of Yugoslavia and weakening of Serbia which was the most populous group of Yugoslavia at 40%. Serbia had to be weakened to a point that it couldn't reabsorb any parts of the planned separatists areas.

      That's why the ethnic Serbs in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo had to be ethnically cleansed, under occupation or weakened until they had no effective political power.

    6. You do not know what you are talking about. In SFRJ Albanians on Kosovo were positively discriminated (nacinalni kljuc). Yet, in 1981 (and later) there were large riots in Kosovo and requests for separation of Kosovo; riots that were not caused by any oppression. This was the first act that shaken SFRJ after Tito's death. Without these riots, you would never hear of Milosevic.

We just do not accept lies. 1945-1980 in SFRJ is a period of unprecedented level of prosperity of Albanians in art, science, culture and sport? Serbia helped Albanians in Kosovo a great deal. And, yet, when Tito died the first impulse was to forget everything and separate.

  10. Benjamin Works writes how Bob Dole and the Albanian lobby were engineering for an Albanian Kosovo even before Milosevic got in power autonomy was rescinded. Milosevic was reacting to Albanians backed by foreign (NATO countries) maneuverings and plots:
    Bob Dole and Yugoslavia; "Concurrent Resolution 150" and Other Puzzle Pieces

    The Dole-DioGuardi resolutions prove the Serb reaction was not mere paranoia. This Dole-sponsored resolution also predates the rise of Slobodan Milosevic by more than a year, and pre-dates the termination of autonomous government in Kosovo by about three years. In effect, Mr. Dole's attempts to undermine Yugoslavia's multi-national --albeit still Communist-- Constitutional polity, made the rise of Mr. Milosevic possible, even a logical reaction to such devious pressures.

    ...

    Mr. Dole incessantly "waves the bloody shirt" with the wound he received under honorable conditions during his brief combat service with the 10th Mountain Division in northern Italy. But, since at least the mid-1980s (and likely back to his 1976 Presidential campaign), Mr. Dole has been in league with the fascist enemies of the US and their children in abetting the erection of a neo-fascist state in Croatia and a state headed by an identified Nazi youth leader, Alija Izetbegovic, in Bosnia. Dole has also attempted to steal Kosovo for the heirs of the Albanians who served in the SS Skanderbeg Mountain Division. In this scheming, Mr. Dole has betrayed his own military service and broken faith with all American and Allied veterans of World War II.

  13. Man, where do I even start... The thing is, Serbs and Albanians are not that different deep down. Both have their fair share of violent thugs. Add brainwashing, tribe mentality and poor conflict resolution skills to the mix and what you get is a big mess. Serbs couldn't govern Kosovo just as they can't govern Serbia, and neither can Albanians. Sadly, both are (and will be) failed states unless the way of thinking changes fundamentally.

    2. I disagree.

      100s of 1000s of Serbs were marching against their own authoritarian regime. Bombing Serbia only polarized Serbia and actually helped Milosovic. Without the bombing, we would have a more normal, liberal-democratic Serbia today.

      Today, liberals in Serbia have to deal with the baggage of being considered by some as with the people that bombed them

On that occasion, they will sing as at any proper Serbian funeral "Tiho noci, moje zlato spava".

    2. Nowadays you only go to Marakana if you want to be beaten up by racist, homophobic thugs while listening to the room-temp IQ crowd's popular chants like "Nož, žica, Srebrenica", "Ubij, zakolji, da Šiptar ne postoji", "Ubij, ubij, ubij pedera", etc. Not my idea of a good time, but whatever floats your 'splav'.

    3. Such inconveniences will not stop me. These are good boys, but lost direction. They need help and I am sure that they will get it in a good time. As Donald Rumsfeld once said (when responding to a question to comment suicide bombings in Iraq after democracy was brought into this country) "This is democracy. People in democracy are entitled to make mistakes. They will learn". I will also go to JNA. I was there when Dzevad Prekazi scored 2 incredible goals against Hajduk (Split; I think that was in 1975; 2:1 for us). I was also there when Partizan lost 1:6 (Hajduk again; I think that this was in 1976). Fans will sing "Volim Partizan" on Albanian "Leshi Kapetan" tune like in old times. Now I will have much more fan than before. I am rich and I have done everything in life that I wanted to do. I succeeded much more than I could imagine. Now it is my time to enjoy, and, for me, there is no better place on earth than Belgrade (for this purpose). Few years more and I am back. I wish you all the best.

    5. On the contrary, Belgrade is now better than ever. People have never been better, services as well. You can do now things that have never been possible to be done in Belgrade before. I agree that most of the things are unavailable for locals (money is an issue), but for me there are no problems. As I said before, if you are set to make impact in your job/business there are better places to be. However, if you already done that and you would like to enjoy life and have fun, Belgrade is at the top.

  17. @Doot: I am expert in life in Serbia. The secret of a good life in Serbia is:
    1) Don't work. It is important not to have any working/business relationships, as this could be quite stressful.
    2) Be rich in relative terms. 30K Euros/year for you alone would be fine (if you already have a good place to live that you own).
    3) Have your man for everything. Your doctor, your car mechanic, your politician, your policeman, your everything. The best is if these people are your childhood friends (like in my case).
    4) Your mind has to be set on having fun and enjoying life. If you want to achieve any professional/business aspiration this will be a difficult place.

    This research shows that Serbia is 41st out 192 countries in terms of Social Progress Parameters. UK is 13th, USA is 16th (New Zealand is No. 1; Swiss No.2). Serbia is ahead of Argentina, Bulgaria and many other countries. Locally, Slovenia is 18th, Croatia 36th, Macedonia 49th, Montenegro 52nd and Bosnia and Herzegovina 61st. Bulgaria is 44th and Romania is 51st. The worst country is Chad ranked 122nd.

She thinks that she is better than the others in Sarajevo, but she is not. Time that she spent abroad did not make her any different, but she thinks that it did. What she writes is the same that majority locals would write. Real foreigners would not write such things as their prospective is different. You write what many people in Belgrade say when complaining about tough life, lack of opportunities etc. They always complain with gross exaggeration (it is worse than anywhere; this can happen nowhere else but here etc.). You write like a typical local who is pissed off with life, but has no way out.

They went into private schools and all that jazz (super successful), but as a people inside they are the same as they were born and bred in Belgrade. Genetics is a miracle. You are not a foreigner in Belgrade and this is obvious.

    5. Your kids are like that because you raised them to be like that and also because they probably spend a lot of time with other brainwashed Serbs. Ultimately it's about how you choose to use your brain and live your own life, so don't just blame your genetics for it.

    6. I am not blaming anything; I am proud to be what I am. My kids are also proud to be what they are. There are Serbs abroad that are ashamed to be Serbs, but those are usually people doing ordinary jobs feeling pressure of the environment to fit as much as possible. We were fortunate not to be in this position.

      But the truth is that you are more likely to be discriminated in Serbia for whatever reason (not conforming to the stereotype of a "true" Serb?) than in Doot's country of birth which accepts and is used to diversity. If you are too blind to see it then I can't help you either.

    3. @Anonymous: I can't comment your statement about probability of being discriminated in two countries as I don't know where Doot was born (you obviously know so you can compare). Read my previous posts and you will realise that discrimination would explain why Doot is persevering staying in Serbia although he can come back to his native country (if he is a citizen of EU he can go back to his 28 countries). Would you stay in a place you hate if you can go out any time?

I also don't think that he like girls in a sexual way (as it is difficult to like girls and hate Serbia) and being an open gay could be a problem in Serbia (this is probably what makes him unhappy).

They insist they're right in their (stupid) position and everyone else (the whole world!) is wrong, their poor ass was unjustifiably punished and we (the whole world) are evil because of that. The funniest thing is that if you really look at the aftermath, they're crying for 6 fucking buildings.. that's right, there were 6 fucking buildings being chirurgicallly bombed in Belgrade as you can see that all buildings right across the streets were left entirely intact, and yet they're annoyingly tearing off their clothes by chanting "oh mama that stupid uncle joe did smacked my sorry little ass". Go get a real life you sore losers!

    Again a few days ago they were crying because of the floods, and although we understand it's not a nice thing to deal with, they multiply their misery by 20 times crying and whining and weeping...... turn on the TV in an English language channel (not only the serbian trash you normally watch) and you'll see what your problems are NOTHING compared with the perennial and catastrophical natural disasters we go through in other latitudes.. go get a life, stupid serbian morons!

    1. I agree with most of what you say about the bombing, but the floods are a legitimate disaster for a lot of people. People lost everything. Some people have reason to cry and weep, especially the families of those killed.

    2. Well, I wasn't mocking with the floods they recently had and I agree that it was a big problem, but in the other hand it's certainly annoying to watch their crying Magdalene kind of attitude. Whatever problem they face (whether provoked by mother nature or their own stupidity), they simply won't move on, they stick to their new found martyrdom and misery and multiply it a thousand times bigger, and they keep telling you that whichever problems that might exist around the world, such problems have no relevance compared to theirs.. the typhoon over the Philippines, the Indian Ocean tsunami over Indonesia, the Tōhoku tsunami over Japan (among many others) ..those were all little cookies, very little meager drizzles compared to how much they're suffering today and you've got to agree with them :p that nobody else had ever suffer more than them in the history of mankind. And when it comes to war... oh boy, (compared to their suffering..) the holocaust was just a tiny aggravation between countries, Sebrenica didn't exist (even their own imbecile President Nikolic publicly denied it), and as a consequence the whole world is so wrong for not supporting their lunacy and only they were right in their position, and not only right but also pure, nice, innocent and virgin :p ..it's like hearing some irritating little boy babbling loudly "oh mommy mommy oh mommy, uncle Joe didn't let me steal the other children's candy bars.....oh mommy mommy uncle joe came 20 years ago to whoop my sorry little ass and I don't know whyyyyeeeee??? ...mommyyy mommyyyyyyy, gde si moooooooommmmmyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeee!!!?????


      The world has a new martyr today: poor little sorry ass Serbia!! ...so much for serbian pride... pride of what????? :p



      P.S just in case some serbian horse attempts to rebate the facts of nature (with blah blah blah), here are some of the recounts of what a real megathrust natural disaster looks like:

      - the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan over the Philippines (6,500+ fatalities confirmed, 22,000+ missing, 20,000+ homes destroyed, 4,000,000+ displaced)
      - the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami over Japan (18,000+ fatalities confirmed, 3,000+ missing, 270,000+ homes destroyed, 375,000+ displaced)

No one can make you love Serbia, but looks like you are meant to hate us and it is good, since i don't hate any of you and I don't have any bad opinion about anyone and anything...and you do.... so basically in all kind a ways I'm better person than you are, and you ever be...simple.

    I love my country, I love my people and I like everything about Serbia.
    .....
    My believe is that Serbs needs to be isolated from you on every aspect since you are the one who are spending more money on weapons, because you build your country on slaves blood and sweet, because you colonized dozens of country just for resource exploration, because you dropped nuke's, because since WW2 you are making wars all around the globe and because you are not ashamed at all and that is the worst sign of all.
    I'm just ordinary Serbian guy married to beautiful wife from Britain (she is so cute when speaking Serbian), and hey we find happiness in Serbia, you didn't, so it is time for you to look it somewhere else.

    I wish you a best in your life, but I'm bagging you to don't pay much attention on us. We are what we are, and it is what it is.. .take it or leave it, it is so simple that even it is ridiculous to argue about it.

    I know very well that majority of Western worlds doesn't like us, like I said my wife is from Britain and her family was not happy with her decision, and they told me everything in face. Only reason why I didn't react like I should is because I'm loving her with all my soul.
    You people even if Serbia doesn't exists at all , you would find someone to don't like, because you feed your soul with negative thoughts and feelings during the period of time. You should clean you soul and this time try to fill that cup with something better.
    Best way to deal with Serbia is to ignore it ;)

      I'm sure you're a nice guy but I won't be taking you up on your offer for a number of reasons.

      1) I know what my problems are and I don't need you telling me what they are.

      2) I can have an entire country full of people willing to sit down with me who would gladly spend their entire day explaining to me that Serbia is wonderful and something is wrong with me, so you're not so special in this regard.

      3) The reason I moderate my comments on here is that I have people legitimately threatening me from time to time and there's no way I'd risk revealing myself in person.

      4) I do actually have friends here, you know. I have plenty of people I can and do hang out with if I'm feeling down.

      So, you do have friends in Serbia? Are they Serbs?
      Do you think they are also scumbags, as everyone born is Serbia is object of your hatred?
      I also think Luke's invite was sincere, as this is one of traits of Serbs - spite, don't know how to translate it - "inat". He is thinking to himself - I'm going to prove you that Serbia is great country!! But he knows he would be talking like you if he was born in South Korea. We all know that.
      I don't want you to like me, my country, I just think it is rude that you are living so long here and you haven't wrote ANYTHING nice, or remotely close to nice about it.
      And I would like to know is there really nothing nice in Serbia, as I'm not objective.

      Any chances to discover from which country you come from?

  38. The be honest, I don't want to convince you in anything, and very last think I would like to do spent time explaining you how Serbia is wonderful country ~ it is like type of food or drink... you can like or you can not. What I could tell you since you are stuck in Serbia.... few places where you could enjoy in other things than bad Serbians.... what about visiting some places, or did you consider moving to Novi Sad, Subotica.... my point is if you have to be in Serbia, why you need to be in Belgrade? Did you maybe consider to help younger Serbians to learn them how to be better. Since you are coming from western part of world I'm sure you can offer us much more than this......... I'm 100% sure that you could use your talent which you posses (writing, describing, exploring) use in better purposes? Why don't you try? The longest journey starts with first step.

    No mater who you are and where you coming from if you approach to people with love and empathy, they will fill it and they will respond on same way... that is natural human response (anywhere in world), and on a very opposite if you approach to someone with negative thoughts, arrogance response would be the same... body language is something you cannot hide it is human instinct to feel good or bad, (nothing to do with nationality).
    You said you have friends in Serbia..... if they are Serbians are they know what you are typing about them and probably their relatives family members... since you generalize in most of your blogs.

    Maybe I don't understand problem of yours, but it is amazing that you spent 4 years on this project without trying to change something. And for all these years with you attitude, and your writing you just make people to think bad about you... so no mater how funny sounds to you but it is a bad karma........ you see I'm Serbian but I'm not religious at all, but I believe there is balance.......
    And I would tell you what my father told me and I'm learning today my kids: Dobro se uvek vraca Dobrim (I know you will understand).

    I don't have anything more to say, good luck with your blogs, and I hope that you might find something that will push you in more positive direction.......maybe this will sound strange.....maybe that karma keeps you over here...maybe you are punished to be with us.... and you see from my example I believe I'm blessed to be here with my family. Good people are good people anywhere in world, bad people are bad people.
    I'm not going to post anything more on your blogs - you have my word, and if you have any question please do not hesitate to ask on private.

    Wish you all the best,
