NATO did a great action of grand freedom when they bombed Belgrade for refusing to allow the independence of Albanian-occupied Kosovo.
This was a exciting, adventurous action of the highest moral authority.
The question is: why are we not yet bombing Madrid?
It is literally the same exact situation, save for the fact that Catalan is not an Islamic terrorist group.
Catalonia’s leader has vowed to declare the region’s independence from Spain in the coming days.
Carles Puigdemont, the breakaway region’s president, said he does not plan to delay the declaration of independence for much longer and is ready to “act at the end of this week or the beginning of next,” he said in an interview with the BBC on Tuesday.
Spanish authorities continue to say they see the vote on Sunday as illegal and unconstitutional, while the EU gave its backing to the Spanish prime minister to resolve the crisis.
The move has been criticized by the president of Serbia, who has accused the EU of double standards regarding Kosovo.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic did not mince his words when he voiced a rather obvious question: “How did you proclaim the secession of Kosovo to be legal, even without a referendum, and how did 22 European Union countries legalize this secession, while destroying European law and the foundations of European law, on which the European policy and EU policy are based?”
Marko Gasic, an international affairs commentator, said Kosovo’s vote was recognized because it’s not part of the union.
So they only get involved in other people’s affairs, why ignoring their own affairs?
I cannot accept this.
I believe NATO must be readying the jets.
“Some say the EU has double standards on this matter. I would say that they just have very low standards on this matter, in terms of international law and their consistency in obeying it. Because the EU opposes Catalan secession in Spain and it supports Kosovo secession in Serbia,” Gasic told RT.
He added, “this is clearly a schizophrenic position the EU has.”
Gasic provided some historical insight into the EU’s past stance on Kosovo secession.
“While opposing the referendum in Spain, it was insisting and organizing referenda in Yugoslavia,” he reminded. “In Yugoslavia they were saying that it didn’t matter what the constitution said; in Spain it is saying the constitution is all important. In Yugoslavia they said you have two weeks to decide whether you want independence for parts of Yugoslavia and we will decide within a week for you – this was in 1992.“
Aha – but you’re forgetting all of the support that the EU put behind the secession of Crimea, are you not?
Gasic expressed doubt that the EU has learned any lessons from its past experience in Yugoslavia since “it never admitted any mistakes” there.
“I believe the EU would behave in exactly the same way again because [Kosovo] is not an area that belongs to the club, the rich man’s club, as Spain does,” he added.
In the case of Yugoslavia and Kosovo, the EU is “deciding the fate of countries outside the European Union,” because although it craves “stability in EU countries,” it has no problem when it comes to “instability outside of the EU… because that gives the EU an excuse to project itself into those areas,” Gasic argued.
Former British diplomat William Mallinson told RT that a major part of the problem involving the Catalan crisis is “the enormous size of the European Union and globalization” which brings about the “slow destruction of the nation state itself.”
This undermining of the nation state causes the “smaller parts getting irritated.”
Mallinson then drew parallels between what is now happening in Spain to past events when NATO opened a relentless offensive on Yugoslavia and the capital Belgrade over the question of Kosovo independence.
“Why isn’t NATO bombing Madrid for 78 days, because the situation is similar in very many ways.”
Mallinson suggested a possible solution to the ongoing crisis is to “throw out the hotheads and get Mr. Rajoy to talk to the leaders of Catalonia to try to come to some kind of temporary compromise while everyone gets together and try to put a stop to these deleterious effects of globalization and the destruction of the nation state.”
I am not so jaded as to suppose that NATO only bombs in support of breakaway states when they are being occupied an invaded by an Islamic terrorist force.
As such, I must assume that NATO is just warming up their engines and will begin bombing Madrid any second now.
Any second now…
The time has come to utterly annihilate the Spanish government and put the king and president on trial for war crimes at the Hague.
That, my dear friends, is the only justice.
