Serbia's army chief has sued a prominent human rights activist who had accused him of war crimes during the 1998-99 war in Kosovo.

Natasa Kandic, who heads the Humanitarian Law Fund group, said the libel suit filed by General Ljubisa Dikovic was politically motivated.

The rights group has alleged that Dikovic failed to prevent the execution of civilians, looting, and rape when he was a brigade commander in Kosovo in 1999.

Dikovic and Serbia's war crimes prosecutors' office have denied the accusations.

Some 10,000 ethnic Albanians reportedly died during the war in Kosovo.

Did any of Dikovic's victims get the chance to sue him for his atrocities and for those committed by the Serbian thugs under his command? I think not.

I say drop him off in the middle of Peja and we'll see if he's innocent when judged by those he brutalized.

It was the Albanians in Kosovo, alongside with their chief NGO supporters the likes of Natasa Kandic, and the UN, who had asked for NATO bombardment of Serbia and Montenegro which lasted from March until June 1999. Did the emptyheaded Albanian leaders from Kosovo thought of what might happen to all the civilians, including the Albanians, when they refused to negotiate in France - I don't think so. They are still expressing their gratitude for being bombed.

And they still have the face to ask for the whole territory of Serbian Kosovo.

Dishonourable characters, supported by foreign parties, who have been profiteering by working against all the Serbs, and who have caused a number of killings of the same Albanians they are siding with, have slanderously attacked a general, and facing the suit are saying that the process is being politically motivated? And what might their motivation have been, if not causing political distrurbances in Serbia. Hello, the woman and those women belong to a non-governmental organization, and they are attacking an army general in former Yugoslavia, and now Serbia? Is that what steroids really do to people's brain or is it that only the NGO sector is infected with the imbecilic virus?

I'm afraid Kosovo Albanians are on the wrong track for settling their issues. Or maybe it's a blessing in disguise, for finally we will have a chance to hear a word or two about the NATO and our dear USA (US of A).

I love it when the aggressor claims to be the victim in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Man up and grow a pair and take responsibility for what you and your countrymen have done.

So the Serbian mindset is that if someone refuses to negotiate it is acceptable to loot, rape and kill civilians? Unbelievable, but then again we are talking about Serbs. Good luck in the future as you descend even further into third world status.

The mindset of the Serbs and citizens of Serbia is to respect the country of Serbia according to its Constitution, to respect the law and order within its sovereign boundaries. In case of any form of disrespect of the above appropriate measures are to be taken ... this is not anything unusual, out of the ordinary or strange. It's something any country with some self-respect is practicing.

Kosovo is still a part of Serbia, and has the status of UNSCR 1244. It is not an independent country. And some Albanians have to face the fact that they need to be tried for a number of violations they have committed against the Serbs. In your picture the Albanians from Kosovo must be the epitomy of hard-working people, peace and tranquility. They wouldn't know anything about raping, murdering, destruction, church desecrations.

As for the mindset "it is acceptable to loot, rape and kill civilians" it goes for the NATO and especially the aggressor-minded USA, who wrongly believe they can mistreat nations from other contintents as if we were in their own land. And it seems to stem from their own inability to make order in their own home and cope with their own problems - mass murderers, the highest rates of unemployment, a country with the highest debt in the world, economic disaster, they're so sick they are afraid of becoming socialists if taking care of medicare system, etc. Oh, well, they call that democracy, not anarchy. And they just cannot leave Serbia alone ... And, yes, thank you for the bombardment and all the wishes for our development. We're still having problems with going back to the future, but we'll get there eventually.

Interesting diatribe vn,

Contradictory and comical, but interesting no less. So your claim to Kosova is thinly justified based on a mandate by an organization (UN) you refuse to recognize or validate. The same organization that is made up largely by member countries you constantly rail against?

Your sermon on respect and law and order smacks of contradiction. If the Kosovars, who you say are Serbs by definition of their country of residence, Kosova, which you say is Serbia, were respected during the decades of the 80's and 90's, then I hate to see how the Serbs treat those they do not respect? Oh wait, we did in Srebenica.

You continually lobby that the former Jugoslavia was made up of many, Serbs, Croats, muslims etc. but look how you respected your countrymen in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Peja.

As far as the bombardment goes, Serbia wouldn't negotiate and therefore, by your rationale, deserved to be looted, raped and killed. But NATO showed mercy and only bombed. Count yourselves lucky.

Again, too many points have been raised. Your side, just because someone is alive, is treating this side as the aggressor. But I cannot comment on that. The truth of the matter is that former Yugoslavia has been killed.

Former Yugoslavia did consist of the Yugoslavs, Serbs, Croatians, Muslims, Albanians, Montenegrins, Macedonians, Slovenians, Bosnians, Hungarians, Romanians, etc., and look how the terrorists and extreme groups, especially in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo treated their fellow countrymen - just because they were Serbs by origin or wanted to remain Yugoslavs and live on their land. The fact is that the largest number of the killed and misplaced persons had been the Serbs in former Yugoslavia, whereas the whole world would like to live in denial of the sad truth and overturn it with a foolish propaganda.

The international community has been asking for the Serbian "criminals of war" and there they are, at the UN Tribunal. On the other hand, all the Muslim and Albanian "criminals of war" are at large, thanks to paying large sums of USD to the UN.

Another fact is that Kosovo is under the UNSCR 1244 - it has nothing to do with whether I like it or not, or whether anyone else likes it or not. It's something sides should work on, hopefully with avoiding any further armed conflicts. Personally, I would gladly have kicked the UN bastards out of Belgrade (with their sick mogrelish staff waiting for pensions) as of yesterday! But, who am I to do that?

"NATO just bombed". NATO just destroyed most of the bridges, infrastructure in economically already disabled Serbia and Montenegro and killed without mercy 3.000 people (including the Albanians). It is called an act of terrorism, not a lucky event. The Albanians wouldn't negotiate, they openly asked for the NATO mission, and now they're asking for the Serbian territory.

Kosovo was a part of Yugoslavia, and is now part of Serbia. I have never said that the population of Kosovo is comprised of the Serbs only. There are a number of Albanians who are a minority in Serbia, but they are a majority on the territory of Kosovo. However, Kosovo is not Albania, it is Serbia. We wouldn't even need to have a single person living in Kosovo - it is Serbian terrritory, period.

If anyone is to be looked on with eyebrows raised it's Kosovo Albanians with their American patrons.

I don't know of this general or if he did or did not commit crimes. But I do know that Natasha Kandic is not a human rights activist or a "humanitarian" as the west propaganda seems to label modern nazis and fascists...

She is,in fact, a female version of Hitler himself, I don't think that a bigger thug,an ustasha thug,has walked the streets of Serbia then Natasha Kandic.

Someday the law will comeback to ordinary people,not to the politicians, and we will trie all the thugs,from Belgrade to Zagreb,from Sarajevo to Banja Luka (wich isn't that far actualy).

As boring as this may seem, here are some facts to your question:

During the period 1998-2001, the total number of killed, kidnapped and missing persons in Kosovo was 3276. Out of this number 361 persons account for the Albanians, about 1953 are Serbs and Montenegrins, and the rest are other nationalities, such as Roma, Askhany and Egyptians (about 266) and members of the Yugoslav Army and Police.

A stark example of the Albanian KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army) activities would be March 17, 2004, when about 50.000-60.000 Albanians participated in insurgencies, which resulted in 19 killed (8 Serbs and 11 Albanians), 900 hurt (Serbs, Albanians, members of international missions in Kosovo).

In total, there were 35 destroyed or damaged Orthodox churches and monasteries, 18 of which had been cultural monuments under the state protection. The number of destroyed and damaged frescos amounts to 10,000.

At the time, 6 cities and 9 villages in Kosovo and Metohija were ethnically cleansed of the Serbs and other nationalities. In total, 4012 persons were evacuated and displaced.

It is believed that the organizer of the uprising was Ramush Haradinaj (2nd UCK/KLA Commander) but despite the knowledge of the international community (KFOR and UNMIK) he had never been indicted.

These numbers come from the following sources: www.kim.gov.rs, and www.arhiva.srbija.gov.rs.

vn,

Neither www.kim.gov.rs, and www.arhiva.srbija.gov.rs. are reliable sources for information as they are pro-Serbian with a bias towards the distortion of truth and or facts. Only 361 Albanians killed, RUFKM? That many Albanians (actually about six times that amount) were killed or displaced in Peja alone.

Did your trusted sources mention the number of mosques reduced to rubble by the likes of thugs like the Munje or the MUP?

When telling the truth (sic) please try to tell the whole truth.

I was trying to give an answer to somebody who, as you can also see, asked very specific questions.

Please cool off and pay attention to detail, such as years, words such as total number of killed, missing ... etc. The first group of numbers does not include the displaced - they were presumably still living. Btw, the number of Serbs in that category would be 200.000. If you would take a look at the sources, for example the story of 17 March 2004 (which is rather long and a very detailed account of the event), you would see that all the given numbers apply to that day and a few days later. If you need to talk about the Albanians, please go ahead and cite your sources.

The sources quoted are the Serbian governmental sources. Herein, I am neither a representative of the Serbian government, nor a member of NGO (just an ex NGO), but I do take the side of non-warring Serbs, better-life thirsty individuals and other peaceful minded parties.

Hello vn and Sasha,

I consider you both to be my friends, so I hope you will not mind taking advice from a well-meaning friend. As a totally neutral Canadian, I detect that you are both right in some respects and wrong in other. The fact is that Kosovo is 90-95% Albanian and only 5% Serbian. The rest I gather, are either Gypsies or Norwegians. Sasha, how can you demand that 5% Serbs be the rulers over 90% Albanians? What happened to your sense of democracy and fairness? At least vn who lives in Belgrade, acknowledges the wrongness of such a demand, and she has promised (I believe so, I stand to be corrected). to convince the Serb government to give up this ridiculous dream. Look, I know about the claim that there used to be more Serbs over there in the past. But how could that be? I know from a very reliable Albanian source that the Albanians are the oldest of all European peoples. He told me that Homer, Sophocles, Euclid, Pythagoras, Archimedes, Alexander the Great were all Albanian, the same as, in more recent times, Isaac Newton and Einstein. What do you have to say to that?
Yours truly,
Darren

Thank you for stopping by and chipping in. As Winnie the Pooh would say: "Goodness Gracious, the Serbs to give up the whole of Kosovo to the Albanians." Oh, well, we all have our dreams.

As for the whole classical world to have spoken Greek and Latin instead of Albanian - no comment. And when exactly did that happen? Must have been some great tragedy.

As for Einstein - could you please tell your Albanian friend that he was a Jew and that his wife was of Serbian origin, a mathematician (or would she have to become an Albanian, too?)

Some quotes by Einstein:
- I don't know, I don't care, and it doesn't make any difference.
- Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
- Peace cannot be achieved by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
- The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
- It has become appalingly obvious that our technology has exceeded out humanity.
