One of the more cognizant posts about the reasons why the recognition of an independent Kosovo state is not such a good idea. Baron Bodissey from the Gates of Vienna offers a salient observation why the Kosovars are not yet ready for their independence, or whether they will ever be ready for it.
The international community, spearheaded by the United States, is rushing into something that they will soon come to regret, once full recognition by the UN becomes a reality.
An independent Kosovo is one of the most grotesquely wrong-headed policies ever pursued by the United States, ranking up there with Jimmy Carter’s love-feast with the Sandinistas in 1979.
It’s not just that Kosovo is Islamic. The province is a sinkhole of corruption, crime, and religious fanaticism all rolled together, and will be unable to function as a viable independent country for the foreseeable future. It’s the Gaza Strip of the Balkans.
In the nine years since the UN took over, Wahhabists funded by the Saudis have penetrated the area thoroughly, building mosques, recruiting violent radicals, and forming a “government” that is a deadly combination of Islam and mafia-style criminal gangs. The Kosovars have set themselves up as the kings of the European heroin trade, and an independent Kosovo will provide an unprecedented opportunity to compromise the new state’s banking system and make the government indistinguishable from a criminal enterprise.
An independent Kosovo in this form serves interests of no Western country. Drugs, gun-running, the prostitution of pre-teen girls, money-laundering, protection rackets, intimidation, and deadly turf wars, with all the proceeds going towards the funding of jihad and the further penetration of radical Islam into Europe.
Thank you, President Bush, for this present to southeastern Europe. It’s a gift that will keep on giving for decades to come.
And to remind everyone, Finland’s former president, Martti Ahtisaari is the main guy who took his hands to the reign and drove the issue of Kosovo independence at the expence of a sovereign state. The Serbs are witnessing the international community dividing its own sovereign territory before its very own eyes, to suit the whims of international politicians who can somehow justify the setting up of a government comprised of Islam and mafia-style criminal gangs.
What a great combination! And then Israel wonders why the Europeans are so keen on bringing into being a Palestinian state that embodies all the same qualities. Hell, the Europeans and the US have now shown their hand in wanting to do the same in the soft under belly of Europe! Lets make Kosovo a EU member to boot! As the good Baron said, “it will be a gift that keeps on giving for decades to come“. More here. *L* KGS
