On the one hand, in principle I support the right of people to secede from a country whose government they find onerous.
On the other hand, I have a decidedly ominous feeling about revising borders on the Balkans.
On the third hand, I think that in the long run it would be rather hard to keep Kosova in Serbia.
On the fourth hand, I think that the Union has been entirely too high-handed in this matter. If the Serbs and Russians are angry about this - well, it's hard to blame them.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
Some old news, reported today over two weeks late...
And Spain's take on Kosovo as of 3 days ago:
The article goes on to Russia's attacks on Spain's "hypocrisy" and Spain's explanations that there's no possible comparison between Spain and Serbia. Meanwhile, a spokesman for Catalan Left Republican Nationalist party ERC has claimed that "Spain increasingly resembles Serbia".
We have met the enemy, and he is us — Pogo
On the seventh hand, there are the Albanian villages beyond the border of Kosovo in Serbia. And also in Montenegro.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
