Bullsh!t, I was there on the ground in Kosovo doing recon for airstrikes. I saw the murders.
I watched as those Slavic "Christians" marched into a village while the village elder surrendered to their forces, no one in the village was armed, and they rounded up the men and boys and murdered them as the screams of their women and daughters being raped filled the night sky.
It was a murderous act that I will never forgot as long as I live.

I see - you only hate Balkan muslims.
My family have been American since Queen Anne, and if it was my call, you and your Balkan grudge match would be on a plane back there tonight - along with all those like you from either side.
Keep your stinking European hatreds in Europe, cheeseface.
Before you say anything, you have to know something about 500 years Balkan slavery under Mislim Turks. It's very complex history. It's not Balkan grudge.

In Kosovo it was Muslims cleansing Christian Serbs for the last 70+ years. Why do you think it's only 7% Serbs in Kosovo? Muslims burned over 140 churches and monasteries, some few hundreds years old. Sorry pal, America is our country too...doesn't matter where you came from and it's not your call...definitely ...!!

More fear mongering. The Baltics are already members of the EU so there will be no disputes over trade agreements in the first place.
Russia's history with the Baltics cannot be compared to Ukraine. Didn't most of that area belong to Sweden or Germany? And Poland? Lithuania? LOL
Poland and the Baltics whining about a possible "Russian invasion" or Russians there demanding a referendum are pure BS. We see no reports of that at all, no Russian protesters in Riga or Tallinn.

I am looking at a map of Europe right now and I see none of these nations in Eastern Europe.
I am still waiting for proof of American bases.

Wikipedia is the dead end for dummies.

I could post a page about the Roman ruins of Tahiti on Wikipedia and some mental midget would quote it as fact.

You are really grasping at straws, that is NATO membership not American Military bases which the other poster said Russia was being surrounded by.

So why don't you show me the American bases in Eastern Europe, shouldn't be hard to find since Russia is surrounded by them now?

Do you know anything about...
Camp Bondsteel U.S. military base in Kosovo?
Joe Biden said...'NO GRAB LAND CRIMEA WOULD BE RECOGNIZED'...but OK to RECOGNIZE INDEPENDENCE OF KOSOVO ...??
What are you talking about?

Show me on the map or a link that shows America annexing Kosovo?

Go on, I'll give you as long as you need.

But I can show you Russia stealing land from Ukraine and annexing it.

They have nothing to stand on and their continued defense of Russia is just further proof of their deranged beliefs.

NATO bases is not the same thing as American bases. America is part of NATO not NATO is America.

Really you people are just dense that you can't tell the difference.

Next thing you are going to say is that every military base in the world is really American bases because America is part of the United Nations.

Well then, Thanks for providing a link proving what I said about not a single American base is east of Poland in Eastern Europe.

But I see you are still going to grasp at straws by trying to tie American bases to NATO member military bases.
