what about EU? the evil here is US!

"European politicians now believe that the US used the bombing of Yugoslavia specifically in order to establish Camp Bondsteel (in Kosovo). Before the start of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, the Washington Post insisted, “With the Middle-East increasingly fragile, we will need bases and fly over rights in the Balkans to protect Caspian Sea oil.

The scale of US oil corporations investment in the exploitation of Caspian oil fields and the US government demand for the economy to be less dependent on imported oil, particularly from the Middle-East, demands a long term solution to the transportation of oil to European and US markets. The US Trade & Development Agency (TDA) has financed initial feasibility studies, with large grants, and more recently advanced technical studies for the New York based AMBO (Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria Oil) Trans-Balkan pipeline.

The $1.3 billion trans-Balkan AMBO pipeline is one of the most important of these multiple pipelines. It will pump oil from the tankers that bring it across the Black Sea to the Bulgarian oil terminus at Burgas, through Macedonia to the Albanian Adriatic port of Vlore. From there it will be pumped on to huge 300,000 ton tankers and sent on to Europe and the US, bypassing the Bosphorus Straits—the congested and only route out of the Black Sea where tankers are restricted to 150,000 tons..."

@ vitko: so you think kosovo is "the new black"? [after irak] anyway, i have another ideea and i'll make some changes soon. no more EU for US. [lol, it sounds so hilarious in rom-glish..]

@uhi: nu-s un client bun la faze maniheiste [dupa cum vezi, e un desen color, ha] vorba diavolului dintr-un film de-al lui bunuel:
ni vade, ni retro, ni nada!

desen color :-D mi s-a umplut popoul de lacrimi :-)) dragule, maniheismul este inevitabil cind accezi la o suma de simboluri.

Scuze ca ma bag si eu in discutie.
Ai si tu dreptate, Uhi. Cum au si albanezii si sirbii. Problema e ca toate aceste dreptati sint separat. Ca doi ochi care-si disputa un chip. Importanta ar fi doar o perspectiva comuna.

Aici, imaginea nu vorbeste de etnii, de popoare. Simbolurile evoca niste sisteme politice sub care acele popoare au fost "ajutate" in vrajba si ura. Balcanii au fost mereu un bun "antreu" al marilor razboaie (care, de fapt, erau ale altora). Nu cred ca sub regimul fascist poporul german era compus din monstri care, dupa sapte decenii, au devenit ingeri. Regimul politic e totul. Nu oamenii. A culpabiliza un popor e rasism. Fascismul sau comunismul au scos tot ce era mai rau in oameni. Iar intrebarea acestui desen (eu il iau ca pe o intrebare) este ce fel de rol, bun sau rau, va juca noul hit epocal numit ue?

Autorului: nu cad pe spate la desenul acesta. Are-o idee, cu cei trei de O care erau prea simetrici ca sa nu merite folositi, dar nu are poanta. Astept si noua versiune promisa!
