Our Gallant Ally, Albania

Filed under: Defending America,President Bush,Republicans,Terrorism — Sisyphus @ 4:55 am

The Albanians have celebrated President Bush’s arrival with a hero’s welcome:

President Bush, getting a hero’s welcome as the first American president to visit this Balkan nation, said Sunday that there cannot be endless dialogue about achieving independence for neighboring Kosovo.

“Sooner rather than later you’ve got to say ‘Enough’s enough. Kosovo’s independent,”‘ Bush said during a news conference with the prime minister of this tiny, impoverished country.

Bush’s press for statehood was aimed at Russia and others that object to Kosovo’s independence. Standing alongside Prime Minister Sali Berisha, Bush said any extension of talks on Kosovo must have “certain independence” as the goal.

I’m not the biggest fan of the Kosovo war, but if it helped make Albania a member of the Coalition of the Willing, I guess some good came from it after all. Albania is, after all, a Muslim country. Their troops could come in handy for the occupation of Syria and Iran.

Russia’s not happy, as usual:

The issue of independence for the Serbian province of Kosovo is another issue on which the U.S. and Russia disagree.

Russia, an ally of Serbia, contends independence for Kosovo would set a dangerous precedent for the world’s other breakaway regions. Serbia also opposes statehood for Kosovo, which it sees as the heart of its historic homeland.

I think we may be able to assuage Russia, though, if Kosovar troops and Albanian troops are deployed to Chechnya to help them control it. Once the Russians see the value of independent Muslim forces aiding their coalition, we can all settle down and be friends again.

Ultimately, of course, our goal must be to make Albania Christian. In the short term, having Muslim allies is useful; in the long term, having Muslims is contrary to the tenets of Christianity. We should send missionaries in to Kosovo and Albania, and help our new friends find salvation. We can hammer out the details later, though. This is a moment to savor.

  1. We should consider building a base and stationing some troops in Albania so that it does not become a haven for al Qaeda or get invaded by Russia.

    And if Russia won’t let up about Kosovo, I think we should give them a little wake-up call.

  2. Albania is an Atheist Country.

    From Wikipedia: As a part of the Ottoman Empire, Albania became a mostly Muslim (see Islam in Albania) territory. During the communist regime, religion was officially banned, and Albania was proclaimed as the first and only Atheist state in the world. Today, with the freedom of religion and worship, Albania contains numerous religions and denominations; however, within a nonreligious majority that may amount to 75% of the total population.[7][8][9][10] Other main religions of the world also have some small representation in Albania. Religious fanaticism has never been a problem,[11] with people from different religious groups living in peace. Interreligious marriage is very common, and an immensely strong sense of Albanian identity has tended to bind Albanians of all religious practices together

  3. Yeah Lets nuke Russia

  4. “From Wikipedia”

    Wikipedia is a den of lies. More often than not, what it says is the diametric opposite of the truth. I pay it no mind.

    “Yeah Lets nuke Russia”

    Once we have our Star Wars system in place, we could easily do so. However, Russia has been nice enough to let us ship things into Afghanistan. If they’re willing to contribute troops to the occupation of Iran and Syria, I’d say leave their homeland in peace. But that’s just me. I’m open to alternative proposals, here.

    I would suggest taking a look at the Conservapedia article on “Earth”, pay particular attention to its roundness!

  7. Oh, by the way, Albania is a shithole: its poverty and crime rates are un-European, and the Albanian mafia is feared throughout Western Europe.

    Conservapedia has been overrun by moonbat pranksters. But at least they’re TRYING to get the truth out there, unlike wikipedia.

  9. “Why do you hate Albania?”

    I don’t, just pointing out they won’t exactly be a useful ally.

    “Conservapedia has been overrun by moonbat pranksters. But at least they’re TRYING to get the truth out there, unlike wikipedia.”

    Then how can you trust anything they say?

  10. Sounds to me like there are some very smart people in Albania. It is a shame that we can’t offer them a trade for Sin Fransico, Massachusetts, and a few other leftieloon places. Let the decent, conservative people come live over here in God’s country and send all the Godless undesirables over there.

    So? they talk about the round verses flat earth controversy. We’ve discussed this before on this blog that unlike what the Darwinist propaganda pushes the issue is still being debated. My position is if the earth was round God would have had the balls to say it.

    “Conservapedia has been overrun by moonbat pranksters. But at least they’re TRYING to get the truth out there, unlike wikipedia.”

    Is there no low and cheep stunt the left will not stoop to?

  12. I’m not so sure we should be sceptical about Albanian atheism. After all, adherents to Islamism are all child molesters or mental degenerates, and such individuals could hardly hold good Republican viewpoints, whilst the only reason for a rational individual to be an atheist is ignorance of other religions. And since they support President Bush, they’re clearly rational, so they must be ignorant of religion.

    Send in the missionaries, that’s what I say.

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Let Vermont join the EU, if we can have the European nations that don’t want to bow down to the corrupt liberal nations of Germany and France.

    “Send in the missionaries, that’s what I say.”

    Yes! It’s the only way to be sure their souls are saved.

  14. Somehow I don´t think that Albania would tolerate christian missionaries that are supported by another country. It would touch their nationla security.

    “We should consider building a base and stationing some troops in Albania so that it does not become a haven for al Qaeda or get invaded by Russia.

    And if Russia won’t let up about Kosovo, I think we should give them a little wake-up call.”

    What wake-up-call? I bet you don´t mean attacking a country that has 15.000 fully operational ICBM´s. Even you whackos can´t be ha crazy.

    And I somewhat don´t think that the russians will invade Albania. They´d more probably just close the pipelines.

    “Once we have our Star Wars system in place, we could easily do so. However, Russia has been nice enough to let us ship things into Afghanistan. If they’re willing to contribute troops to the occupation of Iran and Syria, I’d say leave their homeland in peace. But that’s just me. I’m open to alternative proposals, here.”

    Star Wars might work against single missiles, but against the hailstorm the russians can unleash, it would have the same effect like trying to stop an huge avalanche by firing a bazooka into the advancing snow.

    And Putin won´t be willing to put any troops under US command. He´s presidnet of a superpower, too.

    “Is there no low and cheep stunt the left will not stoop to?”

    And is there even no lower and cheaper stunt and barrage of lie the republicans will not stoop to?

    A lie for a moonbat is the truth to everyone else. You moonbats just love sticking your fingers in your ears and shouting “I not listing” when presented with facts. Just look at the whole human origins thing to see the denial the left is in.

    Well, it might be inconvenient, but I would advocate bombing them a little if necessary, just to put some sense into them.

    I’m not worried about the ICBMs. I bet their missile crews have already drunk all the rocket fuel and replaced it with water.

    As if those nukes would even work! Half of them would probably fall on Russia, doing our job for us. The other half would fall on Japan and China, leaving us with the strongest economy left in the world by default. Any strays that got through would quickly be Star Warred out of the picture.

    Once our shield is in place, Russia can rattle its sabre at us all it wants. We don’t have to listen any longer!

  22. I found it frankly hypocritical that NATO would attack a sovereign Christian nation as is Serbia which tried to defend itself against Muslim separatists in 1999. That the US _still_ has this stance of supporting Islamic fundamentalism in the Balkans is beyond me.

    I find the West’s Russophobia incredibly hypocritical for this very reason as well, not the least because it reveals a tremendous inferiority complex.

    If Russia tried to set up a ‘shield’ against Iranian missiles in Mexico you would go apeshit, Sisyphus. If you cannot receive what you give out, then don’t give out in the first place.

    BTW: On a completely unrelated note, those bastard atheists and secular Nazis have been making effronteries to God’s word for too long: http://gospelofreason.wordpress.com/2007/06/13/god-said-pi-3-stand-by-your-beliefs-dammit/
    Stand up for the right to be a Christian!

  23. Launching nuclear weapons against Russia is not without risk. Liberals would call it an irresponsible thing to do. But the fact of the matter is, it would be irresponsible not to deal with this looming menace. Our children should not have to worry about Russia.

    Please, won’t someone think of the children?

    Of course, a nuclear winter, killing all vertebrate lifeforms on the planet would be very good for the children!

    A, I see a little boy shouting “Oh yeah? Well, you´re stupid, not me!” Please, go back to mommy and learn some debating skills.
    PS: Left? Me? Well, I have always voted middle right, but if you say…

    “I’m not worried about the ICBMs. I bet their missile crews have already drunk all the rocket fuel and replaced it with water.”

    Perhaps under Jelzin, but Putin is another case. And even if half of them fail (Unlikely, they get inspected once a month and are rusian construction. That means they´re rugged.) It would still be quite a barbeque for your country, DPS.

    “As if those nukes would even work! Half of them would probably fall on Russia, doing our job for us. The other half would fall on Japan and China, leaving us with the strongest economy left in the world by default. Any strays that got through would quickly be Star Warred out of the picture.

    Ok, let´s see: 15.000 ICMB´s. Half of them fail. 7500 left. Of those, let´s say 1500 lose the target. (Don´t forget, that stuff is built by russians. They have the probability of shoddy maintenance in mind when building things!) Another 1500 are intercepted before the MIRV´s start. That leaves 4500 of them. And everyone carries 8 MIRV´s. That´d be 36.000 nukes coming down on you.
    Bye bye, USA. Mutually Assured Destruction. Gotta love it.
    PS: It´s quite difficult to shoot down more targets than you have ammunition to shoot em down.

    Which children? After the russian answer, there won´t be many children left.

  26. “PS: Left? Me? Well, I have always voted middle right, but if you say…”

    In Germany, that probably means the Socialist Party.

    “Bye bye, USA. Mutually Assured Destruction. Gotta love it.
    PS: It´s quite difficult to shoot down more targets than you have ammunition to shoot em down.”

    I think your figures are a little off. Also, don’t forget that at least a few thousand of those are probably reserved for Britain, France, and Germany. Our shield will protect Europe as well, but you forgot to add those in with the math.

    “Which children? After the russian answer, there won´t be many children left.”

    No way America loses more than 15-20 million people. We’ll still have millions and millions of children growing up in a free, safe, and happy world.

  27. “In Germany, that probably means the Socialist Party.”

    The so-called Socialist party doesn´t even make it into parliament.
    Basically, it looks like this:
    Left-wing: The Left/WASG
    Eco-nuts: The Greens
    Middle Left: SPD
    Middle Right: CDU/CSU (the C stands for Christian)
    Right-wing: No really important ones.
    Center: FDP

    A party must at least get 5% of votes to get into the parliament. Only those mentioned here made it. Government is right now a coalition between SPD and CDU/CSU.
    I´m voting CSU.

    “I think your figures are a little off. Also, don’t forget that at least a few thousand of those are probably reserved for Britain, France, and Germany. Our shield will protect Europe as well, but you forgot to add those in with the math.”

    Ok, let´s say it´s only 13.000 hitting the USA. Still way more than enough.

    “No way America loses more than 15-20 million people. We’ll still have millions and millions of children growing up in a free, safe, and happy world.”

    Well, from the initial blast, perhaps. But fallout be thanked, your next generations will see that free, safe and happy world only in the picture books they read while sitting in their bunkers.
