Surely this is simply a case of actually getting the name correct? I know we like to implement western names for everywhere but the world is a
On a side note, i trained at uni in conflict resolution and security studies. Several of those i was at uni with are now sent in to hotspots around
the world by governments and international agencies to start the peace processes (think Kosova, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq,
Sudan, Congo, etc) and i am in regular contact and often gain access to things i possibly shouldn't, for example the actual USAF footage of the black
hawk down incident in Somalia. One of my very good friends was sent into Kosova in 1999 to try and prevent trouble (onto a loser there). 4 of them
landed and made there way to the hotel in the centre of Pristina. Of the 4, 1 was from the US, one from the Netherlands and 2 were Bulgarians who were
fluent in both Albanian and Serbian. The 2 bulgarians decided to go for short walk around the immediate area of the hotel to get there bearings, etc
(im talking 200 yard radius). Whilst out, some men in an alley asked them the time in Serbian. As soon as they answered, the men shot them dead (as
they were actually albanian stock). The purpose of my sharing this tale is really to demonstrate that the hatred in this region is just endemic and is
therefore very difficult to solve. Conflict resolution really boils down to attempting to get to a situation that all parties can see as a "win-win"
and in this area, this is not very likely.
