Being a small and very new country, Kosovo has no superheroes as yet. Although many people think we need some, our law enforcement forces don’t enjoy any kind of supernatural help. We don’t see flying heroes catching the bad guys and saving the world from the forces of evil.
It’s no surprise. Despite the fact that we’re the second richest country in Europe in terms of coal and even though the Trepca mine alone could make us a rich nation, were it put back to work, Kosovo lacks the natural elements that bestow superhero status.
We have no green shiny kryptonite, and the only incident I can think of that might have created such an unnatural substance was that accident at the Chernobyl reactor in Ukraine. But it didn’t. I guess we were always far away from the good old Soviets.
Being the most optimistic nation in the world, according to many polls, Kosovars have resolved this problem in a very unique – sui generis – way.
We might not have a superhero, but in the person of our Prime Minister we definitely have a sorcerer. He – so far – has the solution for everything.
Yes, it’s time somebody said it. Hashim Thaci is a sorcerer and the way he resolves problems in this new republic convinces me that he really possesses supernatural powers. He is a wizard, the only one who can resolve anything.
He resolved the problem of discontented with raised salaries. He sent the former workers of Radio Television Prishtina, who had been camping in the city centre for quite some time last summer, back to their homes. The wizard H!
He was the only one who could explain to the angry members of the Kosovo Protection Corps what their transition from KPC to KSF actually meant.
Only a few days ago, doctors had to wait for him to get back from Washington in order for him to end their strike.
So far, it is true that his superhuman powers seem to be limited to a defined territorial area, because he wasn’t so bright in DC. When he started his speech to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, for example, he started by saying “Dear Madam Secretary Albright.” Oh, come on! Couldn’t he at least have said Condoleezza Rice or… Colin Powell? Albright left that post eight years ago.
But it doesn’t matter, for soon enough there will be another crisis in Kosovo and H the Wizard will resolve it immediately. Just wait and see.
Donors spent hundreds of thousands of euro building a new museum in Gjirokastra - but the results were questionable and it ultimately closed over an ideological dispute.
