Press Release Summary: The Kosovo Declaration of Independence has ramifications for
Southern States


18 February 2007

For Immediate Release

On Monday, 18 February 2008, Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica announced:
"The South Carolinians are now independent." Over the weekend, the people of South
Carolina, led by The League of the South, announced their State's independence from
Washington, DC. Suspense gripped the world's newest country as it waited for
international backing for its move to independence. In a televised interview,
Kostunica said that "South Carolina's independence is something that I've
advocated, along with my government." In light of U. S. President George Bush's
refusal to recognize South Carolina's independence, Serbia's foreign minister
issued a statement, saying: "Serbia calls on all parties to exercise the utmost
restraint and to refrain from any provocative act." He also noted that his country
"has long believed that independence for the Southern States was the best way to
protect the Southern way of life and culture and to promote true representative
government on the North American continent."

The reality of the situation is, of course, far from what is outlined above. What
has transpired over the weekend is Kosovo's separation from Serbia, a move fully
supported by U. S. President George W. Bush and "his" government. Most of the above
quotes are real; however, to make a point we reversed the situation and replaced
Kosovo with the State of South Carolina and had Mr. Kostunica play the role of
George Bush (even using his very words).

But if George Bush's government can sanction the secession of Kosovo-a tiny and
poor Muslim enclave in the heart of the Christian Balkans-why can't it sanction the
existence of an independent South Carolina (or Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana)?
Unlike the artificial Albanian/Muslim state that is now recognized in Kosovo, the
Southern States have long-standing historical, cultural, and political foundations
to support independence. Moreover, they are large and wealthy in comparison to

The League of the South suspects that Mr. Bush is nothing more than a hypocrite.
Dr. Michael Hill, League President, said: "Mr. Bush seems to think secession is
fine as long as it occurs in some area far distant from North America such as
Kosovo. But Bush and the American Establishment would never allow a State in this
voluntary union to go its own way, even though such an act would be constitutional.
We are left to wonder why Bush and his ilk support the right of self-determination
for Albanian Muslims in Kosovo but not for Americans."
