提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

Fireworks for a new nation, this is not the safest street party in the world with rockets set off in the crowd. But it must be one of the happiest. All day Pristina’s streets have been jam-packed full of people.All day they have been joyously wildly celebrating independence ,a final break with Serbia. Everywhere you see the Albanian flag flying,the majority of this population of Ethnic Albanians who feel they’ve been oppressed for years and they thanked Britain and America for going to war to help bring this day about. But it won’t be easy for this small poor state,when not only Serbia but Russia says today’move is illegal and dangerous,but the people here don’t seem to mind.

I’m so, so excited ,I can’t even talk and I have something for Russia.You will never ,ever push a closet in this land.You can go to Serbia and freeze to down there, thank you.”

“Very happy day for me. It’s very important,uh,finally I have a state like everybody else in the world, maybe it’s too late, but ,it’s finally happening,so I’m very happy.”

But it’s been a,a,…long road to get here, it’s been difficult.Yeah,a very very long and taut but now we are in the finish round,and we ,we thank the United States of America,the European Union, and all, all who helped us to,to come in here.”

People heading into town to party will pass the wall outside Parliament,and the pictures that hang here are of those who are still missing after the war, for many here it has indeed been a bitter path. 

Inside Communist Yugoslavia, Kosovo with its mainly Ethnic Albanian population had a degree of self-government. As Yugoslavia broke up, the Serbia dictator Slobodan Milosevic brutally stamped on that and promised Kosovo for the Serbs. The Kosovo Liberation Army fought back and around 13,000 died in the terrible Ethnic War. The sight of streams of refugees and news of massacres and mass graves energized the West and NATO went to war against Serbia, and drove the Serbian army out of Kosovo. For 9 years the UN has been in charge, now independence has come.

 There has been a response in one area of Kosovo where Serbs live Mitrovica, crowds surrounded the UN court, and 3 hand grenades were thrown, 1 exploded but nobody was hurt.

 And in Serbia's capital Belgrade, people throwing rocks and fireworks rushed the US Embassy, again there were no injuries.

 "It was no greater trouble than that, and the authorities will be pleased. But they are also waiting for the diplomatic reaction. It is likely that the America will recognize Kosovo very soon, so will some of the big EU countries Britain and France and Germany with at least 5 European Union countries won't recognize Kosovo. But I suppose the really big question is what do Serbia and Russia do? They will say things, they will make some diplomatic moves but does it amount to anymore than saber-rattling. We will learn that over the next few days.
