Obama and Kosovo

The anti Albanian crowd has been spreading false rumors that Obama does not support Kosovo’s independence and that somehow he will be more pro Serb. You will see comments like this all over Serbian, Russian and other Slavic websites. They assume that because there are a lot of Serbs in Illinois and because of Rade Blagojevic (governor of Illinois who is ethic Serb) he will be more favorable towards Serbs. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Obama made his feeling clear last night at the debate on MSNBC when he was asked by Tim Russert to comment what he would do if Russia threatens Kosovo. He said U.S is obligated to defend Kosovo and that he will work with the NATO and E.U to do so. This talk about Obama being a pro Serb or not a supporter of Kosovo is utter nonsense. His comments last night were pretty clear on where he stand on this issue. The fact that there are a lot of Serbs in Illinois apparently carries no weight on this issue as far as he is concerned. The anti Albanian crowd has been hopelessly hoping that because Obama is running against Clinton, that somehow he will repudiate Clinton’s policy in the Balkans. In fact he said Clinton did a very good job in the Balkans and he agreed with that policy. Still not convinced? Please go watch the debate on MSNBC.

Texas voted to join the United States. Almost all Texans want to be in the United States.

This is in contrast to Kosova, which was annexed to Serbia without even being asked, and where most of the people do not want to be in Serbia (which hardly matters now since Kosovo is not part of Serbia anymore).

So, I do not actually consider this may have success.
