Any comment which starts with "You know nothing" automatically discredits itself. A pathetic comment like that isn't worthy of a proper response. (Aug 10, 2013 | post #24)
I'm not saying they have the right to stay in the UK, but these signs are not the the right way of tackling illegal immigration. How can the UK be "over populated"? That is a bigoted comment. The UK is ranked 51st in a list of countries by population density. The UK is not under resourced either. There is enough coal in Yorkshire alone to power the UK for the next 500 years. Technology is changing. Don't forget that ENGLISH PEOPLE exist due to immigration. ENGLISH PEOPLE took what is now called England from our Celtic neighbours to the north and the west after kicking them out of their own land. (Aug 10, 2013 | post #21)
I'm really opposed to these signs. They're inappropriate. They are just a Tory attempt at being populist. I too hate illegal immigration but this is the wrong way to go about things. There are some very unfortunate people who are illegally in the UK and are being exploited. There are people from countries such as China who thought they were going to the UK legally. They applied to an 'agency' which turns out to be a gang. Then the gang will take their money and passport away from them, then the poor immigrant will spend 2-3 months in the back of a wagon in horrible conditions on their way to the UK. Then once they're in the UK, they're being used as slave labour 18 hours a day every day. Do these "Go Home Or Face Arrest" signs apply to these 'illegal immigrants' who are trapped here in the UK and are being used as forced labour? (Aug 9, 2013 | post #7)
And Observer Member State in the UN requires a 2/3 vote majority in the United Nations General Assembly. Russia has no veto here unlike in the United Nations Security Council. Kosovo will be eligible for many sport organisations once this is done. Also this year, Kosovo is to apply to organisations such as the Council of Europe, Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, UNESCO, ITU ect and many more. None of which Russia can veto and may of which are UN affiliated. They only require 2/3 votes. Russia will one day sell it's veto of Kosovo's UN membership for something which Russia wants.

Doesn't matter. Kosovo's membership can't be disregarded in many other international organisations, most only require a 2/3 majority. Also Kosovo will apply to be a UN Observer state, this only requires a 2/3 majority in the UNGA. Then the UN will officially recognise Kosovo as a sovereign state then and allow Kosovo to take Serbia to the ICJ. Then one day Russia will really badly want something passing in the UNSC and the UK, France and US will have their price and Russia will disregard Serbia because Russia only cares for itself.

Throughout history, Kosovo has only been part of a Serbian state for a combined total of 250 years or so. Many of the Old Orthodox Churches in Kosovo were built by Bulgarians when it was their land. Maybe Bulgarians should copy Serbs and say "Kosovo je Bulgaria" haha. (Jan 9, 2013 | post #3)
Kosovo won't discuss Northern Kosovo with Serbia. Here is what President Atifete Jahjaga's spokesperson had to say about Serbia's "platform " re Northern Kosovo: "The proposal of Serbia is illegal and not legitimate because it is being done for the territory of another state, which is independent and sovereign... [Kosovo's] internal issues will not be discussed... We have nothing to talk about this document... We don't spend time talking about this document". Serbia might have Northern Kosovo on the agenda, but Pristina will disregard it straight away, just like they have already disregarded Serbia's "platform " for Kosovo. (Jan 9, 2013 | post #14)

The Catalonia Independence movement dates back to at least 1640. Most of the present day Catalonia independence groups were formed between the 1930s and 1970s, such as 'Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya', 'Estat Català', 'Terra Lliure', 'Unió Democràtica de Catalunya', 'Candidatura d'Unitat Popular'. And now to the magic 2008 argument. The Catalonia Independence main argument today for independence relates to the 2008 Economic Crisis. The rest of Spain became economically f**ked after the 2008 Economic Crisis, whereas Catalonia remained economically stable in comparison to the rest of Spain. Catalans are sick to death of their taxes going to the rest of Spain to help them out, instead of the rest of Spain. This has given support to the independence movements in Catalan, not Kosovo; the Catalans don't give a f**k about Kosovo or Serbia. The stupid thing about your argument is that you'd actually imply that Catalan and Scotland wouldn't be trying to succeed today if it weren't for Kosovo. Now that is a funny argument. Now what do Catalan politicians think about their situation and Kosovo's independence. Let me quote José Montilla, the former President of the Generalitat of Catalonia : "Catalonia and Kosovo have little in common". http://elpais.com/ elpais/2010/07/23/ actualidad/1279873 023_850215.html Even the pro-independence Catalans do not believe in the so-called 'Kosovo Precedent'. The Catalans actually claim to be inspired by Scotland not Kosovo. This is why the "Kosovo Precedent" is manufactured, because there is no truth in it. And people who do believe in this theory struggle to apply it to secessionist movements. This is because it is a fake made up theory. (Dec 26, 2012 | post #23)
The "Kosovo Precedent" is an artificial manufactured argument used to oppose Kosovo's independence. Don't believe me, go to a council estate in Glasgow and ask a pro Sottish independence Chav and he will not have a clue about Kosovo and Serbia ect. Do the same and this time ask a farmer in the Highlands, he also will not have a clue/ care about Kosovo's independence. Yet Serbs and their sympathisers will tell you that the upcoming independence referendum was sparked by the so-called "Kosovo Precedent". And of course the only reason the people in South Sudan voted in favour of independence last year is because they were all inspired by Kosovo, despite the fact not a single person in South Sudan has not heard about Serbia or Kosovo. Then look at Catalonia, which nationalist politician said that they're going to become independent because Kosovo made it possible? Catalonian politicians said recently that their case for independence is completely different to Kosovo's, therefore they shouldn't be compared. So I ask what Kosovo independence? Why is it that Kosovo apparently sets a "precedent ", but when the other former Yugoslav states or any other country declared independence they didn't set a "precedent "? Let us not forget, the Principality of Serbia UDI'd from the Ottoman Empire. I say Serbia set a "precedent "! (Dec 18, 2012 | post #16)
They haven't been freed because they're still on trial. And they're still on trial because they went on the run and consequently their trials are taking place at a later date. But if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear, so why go on the run? At least when Ramush Haradinaj was indicted by the ICTY, he stood down from office and handed himself over; unlike them cowards who went on the run. (Dec 12, 2012 | post #36)
What about these Serbs who were released by the Hague? Mirko Babic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Nenad Banovic: Indictment withdrawn on 10 April 2002 Zdravko Govedarica: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Dragan Kondic: Indictment withdrawn on 5 May 1998 Predag Kostic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Zoran Marinic: Indictment withdrawn on 3 October 2002 Milan Milutinovic: Acquitted on 26 February 2009 Nedeljko Paspalj: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Milan Pavlic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Milutin Popovic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Drazenko Predojevic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Miroslav Radic: Acquitted on 27 September 2007 Zeljko Savic: Indictment withdrawn on 8 May 1998 Pero Skopljak: Indictment withdrawn on 19 December 1997 Ivan Santic: Indictment withdrawn on 19 December 1997 Dragomir Saponja: Indictment withdrawn on 5 May 1998 Nedjeljko Timarac: Indictment withdrawn on 5 May 1998 Milan Zec: Indictment withdrawn on 26 July 2002 And these non-Serbs were sentenced by the Hague? Zlatko Aleksovski: Croat Sentenced to 7 years imprisonment Haradin Bala: Kosovar-Albanian Sentenced to 13 years imprisonment Tihomir Blaskic: Croat Sentenced to 9 years imprisonment Miroslav Bralo: Croat Sentenced to 20 years imprisonment Mario Cerkez: Croat Sentenced to 6 years imprisonment Hazim Delic: Bosniak Sentenced to 18 years imprisonment Rasim Delic: Bosniak Sentenced to 3 years imprisonment Drazen Erdemovic: Croat Sentenced to 5 years imprisonment Anto Furundzija: Croat Sentenced to 10 years imprisonment Enver Hadzihasanovic: Bosnian-Muslim Sentenced to 3.5 years imprisonment Drago Josipovic: Bosnian-Croat Sentenced to 12 years imprisonment Dario Kordic: Croat Sentenced to 25 years imprisonment Amir Kubura: Bosniak Sentenced to 2 years imprisonment Esad Landzo: Bosniak Sentenced to 15 years imprisonment Pasko Ljubicic: Croat Sentenced to 10 years imprisonment Vinko Martinovic: Croat Sentenced to 18 years imprisonment Zdravko Mucic: Croat Sentenced to 9 years imprisonment Mladen "Tuta" Naletilic: Bosnian-Croat Sentenced to 20 years imprisonment Mirko Norac: Croat Sentenced to 7 years imprisonment Ivica Rajic: Croat Sentenced to 12 years imprisonment Vladimir Santic: Croat Sentenced to 18 years imprisonment Johan Tarculovski: Macedonian Sentenced to 12 years imprisonment The Hague is obviously very anti-Serb.

Dominica's recognition means that the majority of UN members recognise Kosovo. 97/193. (Dec 11, 2012 | post #1)
You'd be the first to complain and cry like the biitch you are if someone took the law into their own hands and shot a Serb accused of War Crimes. (Dec 11, 2012 | post #27)
Milan Milutinovic wasn't a soldier. Miroslav Radic was a Captain and he was acquitted. Milan Zec was a Commander in the Yugoslav Navy and he was freed. And many Serb Officers are still on trial because they went on the run and were caught at a later date. But if you've got nothing to hide, then why run? Also many non-Serb soldiers at the ICTY haven't been set free at the same rate as Serb soldiers. Yet apparently the ICTY is anti-Serbian. "So STFU pimple faced anglo saxonic midget" If I said something on the similar lines about Slavs or Serbs,you'd start crying and start telling that I'm anti-Serb and racist ect. So man the F*** Up!
