12:02 pm
particular area and ordered them that they should believe the serbs obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another manmade checkpoint and two large trucks on a bridge thus blocking the road the access ok for troops into the northern part of course there was still more than ten people remain in local hospitals in need of it's in the town of. after being injured in tuesday's clashes with a k. four troops we managed to pay them a visit and ask them what exactly happened on tuesday. this is. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away then i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be a perforated my lung the most interesting fact here is that they came for troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets
12:03 pm

that we are on our own now and we will stand our ground there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states accusing the course of the serbs of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deep concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing dispute but in reality this could destabilize the situation in the whole region. well the actions of the native peacekeepers may only provoke and not prevents more violence that's according to belgrade based political analyst i think. they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian separatists or now they can use their infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and of the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that
12:05 pm
they're actually. the stabilizing the situation they're actually bringing conflict . there thing was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for our albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in july and ever since then they've been giving them full support so they're encouraging actually the government to preach to not. headed by harsh in karachi wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking and they're encouraging them to more violence so they're not a peace partner at all they're probably thought of war and the stabilization parties and i'd say arshad ski isn't possible and we'll be bringing you updates as and when they happen in a while you can have the arguments prevail page to get the freshest pictures of this order just because you can watch them there or download them and broadcast

12:25 pm
ten years i don't know have the head they do and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war it probably is not a winner. the other side is going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others dying it seems clear cut see that it's not worth that i don't see a goal and really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all very controversial question there is present time since situation what are the pros the pros is i think that we have to make a statement that we aren't able to. seek things sitting down that we have a voice in whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how does it go on for ten years that you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no winner over there we have great. we're in there with
12:26 pm
them but what we have to do. well eventually we got to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like what we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say what it was worth or do even that's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a problem. but yeah do you think most americans feel that way and you know i'm sure a lot of americans the pro and anti i look at this well i mean for for a war there for that long i mean it better be for something and we better be. it's a bit out of it if you think that's going to happen. it seems like most people don't feel like the u.s. war in afghanistan has been worth it unfortunately no one in power seems to be listening.
