"Kosovo makes historic declaration of independence from Serbia" - fools... they are playing a very dangerous game and have just shot themselves in the foot. Not like this, not right now...not with America.

("dangerous game [...] just shot themselves in the foot")
What makes you think so?
What could be these dangers? From outside?
Serbia lost the game and they know it..., the people has lost it national pride a long time ago and politicians know there is more in for them if they go for a EU-membership!
Russia may roar if Putin is in the mood for it... but what could they do ? Sending an other expedition to Pristina - i don't think so...
From inside?
The gypsies (political correct? i think they are Roma), slavic Muslims always where to afraid and most of young Serbs already leaved the country ...


And what makes you think there was no green light from the Americans? This came hardly as a surprise.

history's bitter memory:
if you let them make you, there will come a day when they will return to break you.
case in point: saddam hussein.

One of my best friends is Serbian... She tells me the Serbs *have been waiting* for it (regardless of the Serbian state's position on this issue). It is much better this way... That's a Serbian saying this.

I don't know for now but I guess time will be revealing.

@Ibn Bint Jbeil
The "chickens coming home to roost"-phenomenon... you are right.
But then with the risk of overstretching the picture...
Looking back on the history of the Balkans, no matter if you glance back only 20 years or as far as the Battle of the Amselfeld, this event makes only for a tiny biddy in the midst of fat oversized roosters...
