No. The Kosovars don't want to be part of Serbia anymore. So Kosobo is no longer part of Serbia.

So, whenever a majority of people in a subnational region don't want to be part of a state anymore, they just don't have to be? That's absurd, frankly.

Come on, enough of the "Kosovo je Srbija" lines. At least push in a "Remove all signs of Kebab" somewhere there? ;)

None of these countries should be allowed to commit treason against their respective governments by declaring independence...

Kosovo has always been an important Serbian city.

Lol. Balkans. The size of a tin can, but with more ethnicities than anywhere else on the continent. We would kill half the population fighting for scraps, and we're all to blind and arrogant to work together and focus on the bigger targets. :(

Guys, guys, I know how to fix the Balkans!

We have a LIVE! group dance competition between three teams: Team Byzantine, Team Ottoman, and Team Yugoslav. Whoever wins gets the Balkans. We can call it "Dancing With the Kosovars".

You heard it here first on NS, folks. See ya'll in Stockholm when I accept my Nobel Prize.

We should consider re-instating the Austro-Hungarian Empire as a way to fix the problems in the Balkans... certainly it will make the region globally relevant again.

No. Playing along ethnicity is dangerous and nothing like the Balkans proved this.

Someone should slap any residual demonstration of ethnic pride and all these Serbian loyalties to Serbia against their own countries are good examples of such.

Wasn't not playing by ethnic and tribes part of the problem in Africa? Not to say it is the biggest or not, but it surely did not help.

That is like saying "South Korea is has always been an important of Korea". You cannot refer to a specific city by naming the country or region it is in.

America has proven throughout to be a hypocrite. Bombs the shit out of our western brothers in Beograd and other Serb cities, and did they do jack shit when Rwanda went ape shit? I think not. If the hypothetical situation Petrov constructed happened, Amercia would not let Texas go.

As unlikely as your hypothetical is America in its current state would likely not peacefully let Texas go. Of course then it would possibly lead to some form of war and then the winner will probably decide the end result. Same as anywhere such as Kosovo. Serbia can accept it or continue claiming land it does not control which won't do anything but make Serbia look like a whinny child nation and reinforce already highly negative perceptions of Serbia in the world.

The Austro-Hungarians didn't control most of the Balkans - we need to re-instate the Ottoman Empire.

North Kosovo is a de facto part of Serbia. South Kosovo got its de facto independence through ethnic cleansing, destruction of property and mafia rule. If the "enlightened" recognizers think that's a good approach, they can feel free to recognize Kosovo.

it definitely should not have been recognized... Europe doesn't need more fragmentation... it's already on the decline (which is unfortunate)...

Unfortunate for whom? Europe's loss, be it decline or Russia, is Asia's gain. It's a matter of perspective.

Where did I say that Serbia was innocent? I simply stated facts from my perspective. You're welcome to state facts from yours. Then we can compare. It's how a debate works.

Once again, we have the typical westerner who takes advantage of Serbia's misfortune and crappy position in this affair due to the demographic apocalypse sponsored in part by his very nation, whatever it may be. It's not our fault we don't control it. If it were left to us, and the bloody American hands and silent yet all-mighty media misleading tendencies stayed out of our affairs, one could walk into any major town in Kosovo and seldom acquaint himself with the opportunity to find an Albanian. Now, what we see is an inversion of this, as the reality is the very opposite.

Our claims to Kosovo don't make us whiny, and people who do consider us as such for the said reason merely make us sit back and like the rest of the world, become inheretly dissatisfied with the stark level of incompetence and dullness showcased in the views towards Serbia held by people just like you. Don't even get me started on the "child" remark either. If you want to speak of ages, the entity of Serbia is 1246 years old (and the Serbian tribe which dates back nearly 2 millenia).

As for the "highly negative perceptions of Serbia in the world", that phrase itself is broken. The world doesn't hate Serbia. It's people like you that hate Serbia and discriminate against it in innumerable aspects, and in all honesty, I know that if you could make it so, the entire world would hate Serbia.

So go on, argue with my response, and state some more anti-Serb cliches. No one's stopping you. And before drop the Albanian bomb, know that I have nothing against the Albanians. Their culture and traditions were beautiful, and inspired us and their neighbouring nations.
