    Bush said that he supports Kosovo government's "embrace of multi-ethnicity as a principle of good governance". Which planet does Mr.Bush live on?
    The multiethnicity with the remaining Serbs living in ghettos surrounded by barbwire and protecetd by NATO troups? Multiethnicity where Serbian
    children go to schools in NATO armored vehicles? Or where Serbian graves and churches are dessacrated daily? Even slaves in USA had more rights than Serbs have today in Kosovo. Shame on EU and USA!!
