Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This quote of mine ("The whole Balkan scene from 1991 until today is a premium example of horrendously conducted diplomacy, and each time someone thinks they have the answer, yet another flare-up begins. EU diplomacy is all about sticking your finger in the dike.") doesn't mean the US wasn't just as much to blame.

I was only pointing out that EU diplomacy in the region always seems hasty, ill-considered, tendentious, and even arrogant.

The US was totally wrong on Kosovo. They were also bad on Bosnia but only from midway through to the end. Europe stumbled from 1990-1991 until the end of Bosnia.
