Gangsters settle in in Kosovan Government Thaci promotes Fehim Mujota to Head the Kosovo Security Forces
The Kosovo Prime Minister and gangster Hashim Thaci has appointed a former guerrilla fighter as the breakaway state’s first defense minister.
Fehim Mujota has been appointed to the Ministry for Security Forces. Mujota, from the ranks of Thaci’s Democratic Party of Kosovo(Partia Demokratike e Kosovës (PDK)(website), will oversee the establishment of the Kosovo Security Force (KSF), a 2,500-strong formation that is to be trained by NATO.
Thaci's party emerged from the Kosovo Liberation Army, the ethnic Albanian separatist guerillas who fought Serbian forces during the territory’s 1998-1999 war. Mujota’s appointment comes less than two months after Kosovo’s constitution took effect.
Kosovo, whose ethnic Albanians account for around 90% of its population of two million, declared independence from Serbia in February and has been recognized by 43 countries including the United States and most of the European Union, but not Russia.
Parliamentary elections were held in Kosovo under UN control on 17 November 2007. After early results, Hashim Thaçi who was on course to gain 35 % of the vote, claimed victory for PDK, and stated his intention to declare independence. Thaçi formed a coalition with current President Fatmir Sejdiu's Democratic League which was in second place with 22% of the vote. The turnout at the election was particularly low with most Serbs refusing to vote.
This famous picture shows General Wesley Clark in a congratulatory handshake with Hashim Thaci, leader of the KLA, which under the noses of Genral "Janus" Jackson of KFOR had murdered or ethnically cleansed thousands of Kosovo Serbs and had destroyed more Orthodox Christian churches and monasteries than were destroyed in 500 years under the Ottoman Empire.
Next to Thaci is Bernard Kouchner, Chief U.N. administrator in Kosovo and now French Foreign Minister. British General Sir Michael "Janus" Jackson, and Agim Ceku, who commanded the Croatian Army in "Operation Storm" that ethnically cleansed 250,000 Serbs from Krajina and murdered thousands and who now commands the Kosovo Protection Corps (KPC), the thinly disguised successor to the KLA.
Agim Ceku has not been the subject of any ICTY indictment, he was briefly detained in Slovenia in October 2003 and in Hungary in March 2004 on the basis of an Interpol warrant issued by Serbia. Çeku was quickly released in both instances following pressure by UNMIK .
On 10 March 2006 Çeku was elected the first Prime Minister of Kosovo by the Kosovo Assembly. After being sworn in, he declared his support for Kosovo independence, whilst promising to protect the rights of the Serbian minority.
Çeku's appointment was backed by former Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, who resigned in early 2005 after the ICTY had indicted him for war crimes. In his first one hundred days in office, Çeku prioritized the implementation of the UN-endorsed "Standards" for good governance and multi-ethnicity, earning praise from UN Kosovo chief Soren Jessen-Petersen and Contact Group countries.
He stated that he would found a new political party after stepping down as PM for Thaci to take over , disspelling rumours that he would join the Reformist Party ORA. However, he joined the Social Democratic Party of Kosovo on 10 April 2008, and did not rule out that the party would unify with ORA.
It should be noted that the KLA, with whom the US were allied, at one time was designated by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization. Of course, this is the same KLA about whom Senator Joe Lieberman said: "The United States of America and the Kosovo Liberation Army stand for the same values and principles . . . Fighting for the KLA is fighting for human rights and American values." (Washington Post, Apr.28, 1999).
The Boy David Milliband has not thought to provide any guidance about the gangsters taking over the government of Kosovo or the UK Government official line on the matter....
