    Why not Germany? The Saudi dictatorship spent the money to build 200 mosques in Germany for the massive inflow of African and Arab Muslims. You know, rather than take them in where they actually belong. Oh but western governments are so dedicated to democracy and freedom that they not only have some dealings with the House of Saud, but they’ve in fact guaranteed it for decades. Because democracy. Wait, what? Same story in east Asia with China or Thailand. You name it.

      Hey what’s wrong with hundreds of Saudi funded mosques? Not like Saudi has anything to do with terrorism. [drum beat].

    Why would TAI publish, on December 14, 2017 “Terrorism on the Eastern Front: Is Kosovo the next big recruiting ground in Europe for
    ISIS?” , by IRI authors Paul McCarthy & Luke Waggoner?
    Connecting the dots to explain why McCain’s minions are hooking up with neoTAI, at the expense of
    the multi-lateral institutions of TAI’s beloved Liberal International Order, just because…Trump.
    The Swamp is deeper than I thought, populated by so many experts who seem to have good intentions

    Peter Neumann is Professor of Security Studies at the Department of War
    Studies, King’s College London, and has directed the International Centre for
    the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR, http://www.icsr.info) since its foundation in early
    2008. He also currently serves as the OSCE Chairman’s Special Representative on
    Countering Violent Radicalisation, and recently published a report on his findings.
    Books and Writing
    Neumann’s latest book in English is Radicalized: New
    Jihadists and the Threat against the West (IB Tauris, 2016), a fully revised
    version of his German bestseller Die neuen Dschihadisten: ISIS, Europa und die
    nächste Welle des Terrorismus, which was published by Econ in October 2015. His
    most recent book in German is Der Terror ist unter uns: Dschihadismus und
    Radikalisierung in Europa (Ullstein, 2016), a comprehensive introduction to
    extremist radicalization and recruitment, which discusses new trends and
    developments incl. the internet, ‘lone wolves’, the rise of women, and the
    merging of terrorist and criminal milieus.

    Kosovo deserves better than any of this.
    So does America.

  • If so, then it is somewhat of a real shame. I have read polls that indicate the Kosovars and the Albanians are actually among the most pro-American people in all of Europe, maybe the world.
