Clearly, this long-time Albanian purchase (Republican California congressman and chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation, Dana Rohrabacher) has had no idea about the nature of the side he took in Kosovo. He actually thinks he can utter the word “partition” vis-a-vis Kosovo.

And so he did, albeit including the requisite “swap” option that suggests an ‘exchange’ of Presevo Valley for northern Kosovo: Presevo Valley would be annexed to Kosovo in exchange for northern Kosovo to “become part of” Serbia (i.e. to stay part of Serbia, remaining within the internationally recognized borders of Serbia.)

He still doesn’t understand that we are to deliver ALL the land to our Albanian masters, not just most of it. Nor, apparently, does he understand that they plan on annexing Presevo eventually anyway, so what “swap” is there to consider? Meanwhile, as always, please note that this “exchange” is essentially what a childhood friend once tried to pull on me: In return for my favorite Wags ‘n Whiskers sticker that she stole, Helena demanded my Barbie armoir. I was floored by the gall of an attempt to barter with someone using their own merchandise.

But the Albanians have no such gall: They want both. (And we’ll help them get it.)

U.S. Congress voices different views on Kosovo issue (Tanjug, Nov. 16)

WASHINGTON — A hearing on the situation in the Balkans held Tuesday in the U.S. Congress Committee on Foreign Affairs included different views on the Kosovo crisis.

Speaking about the resolution of the Kosovo issue, California Representative in the Congress Dana Rohrabacher, who was once the most prominent supporter of Kosovo’s independence, now proposed the partition of Kosovo.

“We have recognized Kosovo’s independence as people who live there did not want to live in Serbia any more, and now we have north Kosovo Serbs who obviously do not want to be part of Kosovo,” Rohrabacher noted.

He said that northern Kosovo Serbs should become part of Serbia, while ethnic Albanians in the Presevo Valley, southern Serbia, should be part of Kosovo.

The issue of borders was also raised by Poe, who said that the internal borders in former Yugoslavia were set by President Josip Broz Tito, and that it was strange that the U.S. had accepted that. [Nice to see that someone in Congress finally noticed.]

He also posed a question what would happen if north Kosovo Serbs said that they did not want to live in Kosovo any more.

Harsh criticism over Serbia’s policy came from Ohio’s’ representative Jean Schmidt and New York Congressman Eliot Engel.

They said that Serbia was responsible for the situation in north Kosovo and that the EU integration process should be stopped until this issue was resolved.

Retired U.S. diplomat Gerard Gallucci stated that the NATO troops and EU police had been acting [against the Serbs] outside their UN peacekeeping mandate by trying to impose Kosovo customs in the north without any prior political agreement. […]

Note: Unlike Rohrabacher, Engel and this Schmidt character haven’t forgotten who butters their bread, so the Serbs are — as ever — the ones to blame. (For resisting our clients’ continued usurpation.) Rohrabacher falters by having even the most minimal consideration for the Serbs’ position.
