Ooops. When We Say Freed-dumb for Everyone, we Don't Mean Anyone...

Yet another illustration why our duplicity is so unpopular in the rest of the world.
Washington rejects Palestinian-Kosovo comparison

17 hours ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The United States on Wednesday rejected comparisons between the Palestinian situation and Kosovo, after a senior Palestinian official called for a Kosovo-like declaration of independence.

Kosovo is a "unique" situation, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. "It is not a precedent for any other situation around the world."

Why the enthusiasm to throw Christian Serbia to the Muslims? It may have something to do with the background of most neoconservatives, whose hatred of East Europeans far exceeds any hatred they have of muslims...well they pretty much hate/fear everyone but that's another story.

Gates of Vienna:
In any case, the Clinton administration started us down the path that led to today’s events. The Bush administration gladly took over the Kosovo project and pursued it vigorously. After 9-11 it was especially important to demonstrate that we weren’t anti-Islam, that we were willing to allow Christians to be ethnically cleansed and killed in order to benefit Muslims.

We’ve got nothing against you, Islam, and Kosovo proves it. So now do you love us? Well, do you?

An independent Kosovo is one of the most grotesquely wrong-headed policies ever pursued by the United States, ranking up there with Jimmy Carter’s love-feast with the Sandinistas in 1979.
