Republika Srpska: After Independence

Yes, I met "moja zena" in Krf before few years and I go to Republika Srpska 2-3 times per year to see friends and relatives. What's your problem? If you Muslims have forgotten that you are Serbs converted to muslims is not my problem. Its your ID crisis.  (Nov 19, 2009 | post #13)

Republika Srpska: After Independence

Just came back from Banja Luka. Happy to see Republika Srpska independent. Serbs there have nothing to do with muslims. You should be in Banja Luka and hear how Serbs cheered Portugal's goal. Maybe Europe is against Independent RS because they do not want to see a pure muslim country like Bosnia, but there is not other way. People in RS are Serbs, they hold Serbian passports and they cheer for every Serbian success in every field. First step is Free and Indepented Republika Srpska. Second step is a referendum with a question about union with Serbia. All my wishes to people there. P.S. Love Cevapi :)))))  (Nov 19, 2009 | post #11)

Third READ Papandreou statements on a letter to Nikola Sarkozy http://www.greekne wsonline.com/?p=87 41 "Papandreou also notes in his letter that the "unilateral declaration of independence by Kosovo and its recognition by some EU member-states in violation of the principles of International Law and UN Security Council's resolutions and without a previous decision by the EU's 27 member-states, does not contribute to the region's stability" another statement is here http://www.ana.gr/ anaweb/user/select lang?lang=el&c urrpageurl=%2Fuser %2Fshowplain%3Fmai ndoc%3D6240554%26m aindocimg%3D623987 6%26service%3D8 "On the question of Kosovo, he said that its unilateral recognition is a flagrant violation of international law and added that Greece's insistence on international law is a profoundly patriotic stance."  (Oct 5, 2009 | post #4)

Second There is no “recognition” of passports between Greece & Kosovo and that could not be otherwise since there is no state recognition between the former towards the latter. What is the actual fact is the stamping of a white paper which is attached in the so-called “Kosovo passports” when someone from there wants to enter Greece. 1) The reason for this “alchemy” was the pressure by the international community and the existence of many Kosovo-Albanians working within the UN, NATO, and EU forces in Kosovo. From time to time they have to visit Thessaloniki where the regional centers of the above organizations are based, therefore a way had to be made to accomodate their travel. 2) In reality a Kosovo-Albanian entering Greece is considered as a “Non-state” citizen and there are international regulations controling these. In any case the practical situation is quite different from what Albanians are trying to present. The key fact for everyone is to assess any situation based on logic and observation and not on sentimetal impulse. I don’t know whether Greece will eventually recognize Kosovo, but I think that has a low probability and the same goes for the rest of the 145 countries that haven’t recognize it yet. The issue is more than another Balkan confrontation, it has global consequences regarding international law, the role of the nation state and the role of shadow diplomacy versus the official and legal one.  (Oct 5, 2009 | post #3)

Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Alexandria, Egypt http://www.bibalex .org/english/artsm useums/antiquities museum/collection/ greek.htm During the reign of Ptolemy I, successor of Alexander the Great to the throne of Egypt, Alexandria received a great number of Greek artists who admired the calm and cheerful atmosphere of Alexandria. Gradually, with the mingling of these Greek artists with Egyptians and adopting some of their traditions and beliefs, a hybrid mixture of Greek and Egyptian art emerged.  (Oct 2, 2009 | post #178)

The large paintings commissioned from the painter Le Brun in 1665 were the vehicles for this propaganda. Le Brun was able to recreate the tumult and ferocity of battle through facial expressions. He carefully described an imagined Antiquity, set up carefully centered compositions, and selected colors that emphasized the action of the hero across the vast surface of the canvas. Crossing the Granicus and The Battle of Arbela illustrate the famous battles between the Greeks and the Persians, while The entry of Alexander the Great into Babylon evokes the triumph of Alexander entering this eastern city, in which we can make out the city's famous hanging gardens  (Oct 2, 2009 | post #173)
