and (he shall) think to change times and laws


European Union chief diplomat Javier Solana dismissed criticism by Russian President Vladimir Putin who lambasted Kosovo's independence declaration.

Talking to the Sunday daily Bild am Sonntag newspaper, Solana said, "The decision over the future status of Kosovo was inevitable and brings additional long-term stability to the region and thus for all of us." Putin on Friday labeled the declaration of independence by Kosovo as a "terrible precedent" that will come back to hit the West "in the face."

"The precedent of Kosovo is a terrible precedent, which will de facto destroy the whole system of international relations, developed not over decades, but over centuries," Putin said in televised remarks.

"They have not thought through the results of what they are doing.

At the end of the day it is a two-ended stick and the second end will come back and hit them in the face," he added.

And he shall speak great words against the most High,

and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
and think to change times and laws:
and they shall be given into his hand
until a time and times and the dividing of time.


(AGI) - Brussels, Feb.20 - The EU is united as regards the Kosovo affair, but the member states have "different procedures which require different times" to react to changes, EU High Commissioner for Foreign Policy Javier Solana after meeting Kosovo PM Hashim Tachi in Pristina. "The EU is united, so united that we are sending people there on behalf of the EU", he told the reporters, "but the countries' procedures differ in addressing changes in the international community. It must be so, because it is not the EU that recognises countries, but its member states, following national laws". Kosovo has "a European future and the EU will field human resources there, to cooperate with the government to ensure rule of law, law enforcement and economic development".

Wow, Farmer, that picture of the arrogant Solana just above the !blood moon over Jerusalem is powerfully disturbing! Keep up the good work. If we could get you on for a few minutes on MY PERSPECTIVE radio next Tuesday, I would love to get your perspective on the Kosovo situation. I personally believe they have set a very dangerous precedent and Jerusalem as well as other religious centers could be next!
