- Another War?! Serbia Massing Troops & Tanks on Kosovo Border
Intelligence agencies are sounding the alarm tonight that the country of Serbia is massing an “unprecedented” amount of troops, tanks, artillery and Mechanized Infantry Divisions on the border of neighboring Kosovo.
NATO Troops are in Kosovo and tasked with keeping the peace there after a brutal Civil War. In that war, ethnic Albanians tried to force out ethnic Serbians. Word on the streets inside Kosovo is that Kosovo is trying to ethnically cleanse citizens of Serbia that stayed in their Kosovo homes after the Civil War. It appears another war is about to break out.
