Let the Superpowers fight a Star War – Kosovo finally declared independence from Serbia.
When two people can not live together peacefully, it’s always better to demarcate a line between themselves.
The US & EU support Kosovo less for their democratic idealism, and more because they’ve no any separatist movement within their own territory.
Russia & Serbia’s furor is understandable. Russia itself faces fierce movements like Chechnya.
And how could China let go of Taiwan & Tibet!
For the same reason, it would be very hard for India, which prides itself calling ‘the world’s largest democracy'(or mobocracy?), to accept Kosovo as a free nation.
But does indepenced gurantee the desired peace & freedom?
Hence, it’s unlikely that Kosovians’ euphoria would culminate into a lasting peace in the region.
Welcome landlocked Kosovo anyway!
