Regarding the recent story, “U.N. whistle-blower asks U.S. to withhold U.N. payments”:

The massive level of endemic corruption in Kosovo (to the tune of billions of dollars), aided and abetted by the U.N. and Western powers, should come as no surprise given that Western powers led by the U.S. couldn’t even respect U.N. resolution 1244 (which it originally supported). The resolution explicitly mentions that Kosovo is an integral part of Serbia, but the West instead decided to violate Serbia’s sovereignty (destroying international law in the process) by illegally recognizing Kosovo’s “independence.”

The West has created a terrorist haven in Kosovo, and we continue to suffer significant blowback as a result. It’s time for the West to stop using the emasculated U.N. as a tool to illegally achieve its aims, cease its one-sided intervention in the Serbian province of Kosovo, and let the Serbs and Albanians find a peaceful resolution to the decades-old conflict on their own.
