The title of this article does not intend to despise anyone, but I am convinced that if the president of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, was in Milosevic’s shoes (former president of Yugoslavia), he would be a real Milosevic.
What is it that the Albanian Slobodan has in common with the Serb Slobodan? (I repeat, I don’t intend to despise any of the two by this. Slobodan Milosevic would feel terrorized if he was compared to Hashim Thaci and Thaci would also feel terrorized if he was compared to Slobodan Milosevic)… But, at the end of the day, this is the first thing that the two have in common:
Nobody wants to be like the other.
Even in the recent days, despite the close cooperation between Hashim Thaci and the Serb president, Vucic, a lot of attempts were made to make them look like enemies. But, in fact, the scary plan for the start of deep crises in the Balkans after border changes, was masterminded in dark rooms where the two “enemies” engaged in talks. Both Thaci and Milosevic (along with Vucic), have always used hostility between Serbs and Albanians like something to entertain the masses, nationalists and “patriots”. In the recent days, Hashim Thaci has done everything not to have eye contact with Aleksandar Vucic. But in reality, it’s something else: They joined forces with the aim of finalizing a big plan. Hostility between nations is blamed on the victims, namely common people.
This is what Milosevic did too during the period when he tried to become a “legendary leader” of the Serbs in 1986. After that, he drowned Balkans in blood.
