    Bush Receives Hero's Welcome in Albania


    Jun 11, 1:22 AM (ET)

    By JENNIFER LOVEN


    TIRANA, Albania (AP) - President Bush, enthusiastically welcomed as the first U.S. president in this former communist nation, served notice Sunday he is running out of patience with Russia's objections to independence for neighboring Kosovo.

    "Sooner rather than later you've got to say 'Enough's enough - Kosovo is independent,'" Bush said, telling Albanians what they wanted to hear. He said independence was a certainty.

    Nearing the end of an eight-day trip, Bush got a hero's reception in this desperately poor country, still struggling to recover from being cut off from the rest of the world for four decades under the harsh rule of dictator Enver Hoxha. Hoxha died in 1985, and Albania emerged from isolation in 1990 but still is one of Europe's most impoverished lands.

    Cannons boomed salutes from mountains overlooking the capital. Huge banners proclaimed "Proud to be Partners," and billboards read "President Bush in Albania Making History."

    Yes, they love him in Albania. I say let's give him to them. He can be President of Albania.

    Where was it I saw that people are naming their babies "George" and "Laura"? I want to say Bulgaria or somewhere.

    :applause:And such a welcome is greatly deserved! As it should be in America and elsewhere.

    It’s very refreshing to see people behave in a respectable manner. :thumbs::thumbs:
