Kosovo is not a state, nor will ever be. You remember that. The Serbs who were strong enough not to be expelled will behave similar like Albanians behaved in nineties when Serbia had full control over its territory.

This amnesty deal is an important step , one in many that needs to be made by Kosovo's Majority Albanians

The E.U. must follow up & demand that Prishtina protect & help re-settle Kosovo's minority groups, allow for the return of all of Kosovo's pre-1999 minority peoples ; Serbs, Bosniaks, Gorani, Montenegrins, Croats, Romani, Ashkali, Turks, Balkan Egyptians & Macedonians !!!!!!!!!!

Kosovo must become a FULLY INCLUSIVE nation before it is allowed E.U. membership

Its about time everyone is taught in English, its the language of the world and the world needs a common language, lots of different languages creates unnecessary bureaucracy and red tape. Languages like Serbian, Albanian, Hungarian only have regional importance and families should keep communicating in them but in order for any of these countries (where these languages are spoken) to improve they need to work together and to work together effectively they need a common language otherwise everyone will keep emigrating from the Balkans to the USA, Canada, UK and Australia where they will end up speaking English anyway.

I didn't say deny their language. As I said it should have regional importance. But it will be beneficial to be taught in English, the only countries which can truly afford to keep their languages are Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, China and the Arab world. Everyone else, in order to adopt a common language amongst the thousands of different regional languages, uses English. So my point was in Yugoslavia should have found a common language to teach people in.

During the cold war period Serbo-Croatian was the official & predominant language in the S.F.R.of Yugoslavia. Even the three largest minority groups of the SFR of Yugoslavia the Hungarians, Albanians & Romani were brought up learning Serbo-Croatian.

The two are SFR Yugoslavia languages were the distinct Slovenian & Macedonian languages

Look carefully, the creation of Yugoslavia was artificial in many ways, it was an empire, because it lived in many other ethnic groups and languages, Albanians, Macedonians, Italians Hungarians, Romanians, Germans, Austrians,
1) Albanians were angry with the Serbs, for the massacres carried out by the Serbian army, and be under the Serbs, it meant occupation
2) Macedonia was clearly an achievement of the Serbs after the Balkan wars, however, they plodded
2) Croats, Slovenes, were in two opposite sides with the Serbs during the First World War, they killed each other, this is worth for the Hungarians Vojvodine
3) Serbia being a winner, he would often see others who commanded, and it was it who dictated the laws
Are some voices that Yugoslavia was a willing of England and France ,making pollow to the Germans and Austrians in the future,somehow they had right

I am not saying that everything was pink, but Albanians wanted to go out of the universities. They left by themself, and wanted to set parallel institutions. If i am not mistakin' Rugova even set a deal with Milosevic about that.

What can be said ? Albanians will always look at Serbs like the ones that put down their rebellions in blood, the Serbs will always look at Albanians as the ones that rebel against anyone that is ruling over them....in this way there is no co-existence,and harsh to be solved

This means nothing. Serbian war criminals will be killed whenever caught. They know that very well. That's why many of them are preparing to leave or have left already.
