Hi, Kim, L'-san.
Ugh-huh. "Prisoners of consciense", - what does dodging draft constitute?
* Perhaps it depends on who's doing the talking?
On seriousness of those doing it. So far, the other side lacks it.
* If only the American election scedule didn't determine the timeframe.....
* that other such earth pits are being discovered regularly.
Almost same as in Kosovo.
If the R. Army kills, - it just kills - they don't tie hands. Quite a number could have died as regrettable "collateral damage", others - at the hands of gangs, as the R. Army wasn't there all the time, a big group of "freedom-fighting" bandits was tricked (You may remember it) onto a minefield and "helped" to achieve "martyrdom", etc..
"""If the R. Army kills, - it just kills - they don't tie hands"""

* Listen to Bagel girl -
Don't whine, get lost, get a life and make yourselves useful by, at least, building lobbies of rocks, - still better, than destroying things. Remember, the productive activity turned an ape into a human being. LOL. So, evolve, dood, evolve from a reproductive to a productive one.
Someone should tell mr. RON PAUL. to stick to domestic politcs, and let the boys in the Pentagon handel our foreign affairs. Whats the point of having this All-World higly supreme military if ur not going to use it?
There is nothing uglier than a republican dove, well perhaps ur average Jew.
If he was in the white house, Kuwait would still be a part of greater Iraq. Milo would still be in power, and war would still rage in the Baltics. China would have invaded Taiwan and North Korea would possess weapons of mass destruction.
tell me one incident where our 'interventionism' has caused a conflict to spread?
"""the productive activity turned an ape into a human being. """
Bagel's 'productivity' theory!!! lol...
u must get that rabbid Rabbi to stop sniffing around ur hairy 5-hole. And don't believe him, he can do all the rubbing he wants no gennie is gonna come out!!! lmao...
lumx u dummy.
Exactly kuwait is part of Iraq
Kim! I thought you promised to send me one of your pictures! At least let me see your face!
US troops open fire on Albanian guerrillas
Special report: Kosovo

Thursday March 8, 2001
US soldiers fired on ethnic Albanian guerrillas near the Macedonian border yesterday as pressure mounted on Nato to take tougher action against the rebels in cooperation with Serbia.
In the first armed engagement involving K-For peacekeepers in the area, two Albanian guerrillas were wounded inside Kosovo across the border from the Macedonian village of Tanusevci, where Macedonian
troops and ethnic Albanian guerrillas clashed for two days this week.
The US troops moved into the Kosovo border village of Mijak in search of weapons. When a group of four men in black uniforms with red patches pointed their weapons at them, the peacekeepers opened fire, the
US military said. The guerrillas did not fire back.
The shooting lasted 10 to 15 minutes and ended with a badly wounded Albanian being evacuated to the US military hospital at Camp Bondsteel. The US troops were last night searching for the other men.
Although there was mist the American foot patrol's distinctive uniform meant that its members could not have been mistaken for Macedonians, said a K-For official. Mijak, just a few hundred metres inside the Kosovo
border, is on a ridge overlooking forested valleys.
"We are prepared for any response," said Major James Marshall, a spokesman for the US peacekeepers. "We will use all means necessary. We don't want any more violence, but this will be up to those armed
A European diplomat, reflecting concern about Washington's reluctance to act against ethnic Albanians - and cooperate with the Serbs - said: "The US is getting its act together".
In a separate incident, two Yugoslav soldiers were killed and two others seriously injured when their vehicle hit a landmine. The soldiers were outside the village of Oreovica, on the edge of a buffer zone between
Kosovo and the rest of Serbia.
The village is near the town of Presevo, about 230 miles from Yugoslavia's capital, Belgrade. The entire population of Oreovica is Albanian.
The Nato allies were yesterday discussing whether to allow Serbia to conduct armed patrols in a short strip of its external border with Macedonia, as well as in the nearby Presevo valley.
"Nato can only facilitate but leaving things as they are is not an option," an alliance spokesman said last night. But the US was reportedly still reluctant to allow Serb forces closer to the border with Kosovo.
Kosovan Albanian leaders attacked the proposal to let Serbian forces into the buffer zone, claiming it could spark fresh violence in the Balkans.
"The army which until recently committed massacres in Kosovo cannot return to Kosovo or to a part of the Kosovo-Macedonian border, especially not to the triangle between Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia," Kole
Berisha, vice-president of the moderate Democratic League of Kosovo party said. A three-mile "ground safety zone" within Serbia and running along the border with its province of Kosovo was imposed by Nato
after the 1999 Kosovo war. It has allowed guerrillas from Kosovo to infiltrate the border region which is inhabited by ethnic Albanians.
British defence official said yesterday that the prospect of joint K-For/Serb patrols could not be ruled out.
The conflict has also drawn in Macedonia, 30% of whose population is ethnic Albanian. This week Albanian insurgents killed three Macedonian soldiers near the Kosovan border.
A Macedonian police spokesman, Stevo Pendarovski, said yesterday that about 300 ethnic Albanians, mostly women and children, had fled their homes in villages along the border.
The Macedonian president, Boris Trajkovski, played down the latest violence: "I don't believe that we'll have again the situation here as we have had over the last few days, and we are there only to isolate the
presence of these terrorists."
The Macedonian government, which includes ethnic Albanians, risks alienating its ethnic minority if it adopts tough tactics against the guerrillas, or alienating the Slav majority if it does too little, western diplomats said
Macedonia has called for a high-level meeting at Nato headquarters in Brussels tomorrow- an indication of its growing concern about the deteriorating security situation. It has criticised the alliance for not taking
firmer action earlier and wants a solution involving international troops.

Milosevic regime smuggled gold, bank chief says
Beti Bilandzic in Belgrade
Thursday March 8, 2001
A group of state-owned Serbian mines illegally exported gold worth ?4.3m during Slobodan Milosevic's rule, the Yugoslav central bank governor claimed yesterday.
Mladjan Dinkic said it was not yet clear who had profited from the sale of more than 700kg (1,500lbs) of gold, although a close Milosevic ally was a regular visitor to the mining complex.
The news came as the UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague offered to try Mr Milosevic partly in the Yugoslav capital. The offer, announced in London by a deputy prosecutor, Graham Blewitt, is aimed at ending
the impasse with Belgrade, which refuses to extradite him.
He added that an new indictment charging Mr Milosevic with responsibility for war crimes in the Croatian and Bosnian wars, in addition to those relating to the 1999 Kosovo conflict, would be issued soon.
Mr Blewitt said it would be legitimate for Serbia to try the dictator for fraud before he faced the tribunal, if the Serbians were ready first.
Mr Dinkic's allegation followed a request by Serbian prosecutors for the police to investigate reports that Mr Milosevic sold 173kg of gold from the Bor mines in eastern Serbia in Switzerland last year and then
deposited the profits abroad.
The companies involved in those deals and the Yugoslav customs service deny that there were irregularities, and Mr Milosevic's supporters insist that the allegation is part of a witch-hunt.
But Mr Dinkic, a key reformist, said that information given by mine officials showed that the Bor mines had sold gold illegally in each of the three years 1998-2000.He suggested that other, hidden, records would
reveal much higher amounts.
He said said that none of the evidence gathered so far led back to Mr Milosevic, but a close ally of the former president, the former federal deputy prime minister Nikola Sainovic, was reported to have visited the
mine every Friday.
"Whether Sainovic has connections with Milosevic and whether he himself is linked to this still remains to be determined," he said.
The gold sales would have breached the international trade embargo on Yugoslavia if the proceeds had gone to any of the blacklisted bank accounts belonging to Mr Milosevic, his family and aides, or to state
The Yugoslav customs chief, Vladan Begovic, said last week that the gold was processed for foreign firms and did not belong to the mine.
Dr Dinkic said: "There was a de facto abuse in these dealings - false evidence and documentation. It remains to be determined where the money is and who profited from it."

Seems an obvious way of keeping Milosovich away from the Hague.....
Are you sure he isn't in on all this?????
