My Last Post on Kosovo
Fine. So now let's be ready for all of the" day after" consequences. Change of status does not turn Kosovo into a peaceful multiethnic harmonious democracy. As East Timor has discovered, independence does not bring automatic prosperity.
Things may go well--or they may go poorly. But this time there are no excuses about "we couldn't have known" or "we never foresaw" the difficulties and challenges that lie ahead.
Of course, the US government wants the EU destroyed, and the Russians infuriated, so Kosovo is a twofer!
