Kosovo declares independence from Serbia#1
Posted: 2/17/08 at 3:10pm
Kosovo has formally declared its independence from Serbia and become the world's newest state in a move opposed by Serbia and Russia but backed by many western governments.
Lawmakers in the legislature of the former Serbian province approved the declaration of independence at an extraordinary session Sunday afternoon. It was read out in Albanian, Serbian and English by prime minister Hashim Thaci before the approval of state symbols including Kosovar's new national flag and anthem.
Thaci said that Kosovo was an "independent and democratic" state, adding: "From this day onwards, Kosovo is proud, independent and free."...
... President George Bush said Sunday that Kosovo's status must be resolved before the Balkans can become stable and that the United States supports the Ahtisaari plan which calls for a form of supervised independence.

Times Square is filled with honking and woo hooing.

at the expense of the shows trying to have a matinee.

a mac truck just went by with a horn so loud, one literally couldn't form a thought.

I love the phrase "supervised independence".

hmmm, stabilization in the Balkans.......

jUNE 28, 1914.....any hope of peace in the Balkans shatted by assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austo-Hungarian throne....World War starts with this small flame

2008, Kosovo declares independence.......no hope for stabilization in the Balkans

Many believe WW3 will start in the Mideast.......oh really?
