Kosovo's freedom is worth clash with Russia

Says who?

Confrontation with Russia is a price worth paying for Kosovo's independence, a senior Western official said yesterday.

Can we please stop clashing with everybody at the same fucking time. Can't we space our clashes out a few years?

Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence on Sunday has sparked major diplomatic divisions around the world, and sporadic violence in the Balkans.

Well, what can you expect? No country gains independence without bloodshed, struggle and diplomatic squabbling.

Serb nationalists destroyed two checkpoints on Kosovo's new border with Serbia yesterday, causing Nato troops to intervene for the first time since the split from Belgrade.

"Hey! Cut that out!"

But a senior diplomatic source in Pristina said that "Europe has stood up and been counted" by backing Kosovo's independence.

"Now we're going to sit back down and be quiet."

It had done so despite "Russian muscle flexing" as Moscow sought to maintain influence in the Balkans and support its key ally in the region, Serbia. The Western official said: "We wanted to do it [work towards Kosovo's independence] with Russian co-operation. But the Russians chose not to. But it is worth sorting out Kosovo even so."

World ain't doing so great lately huh. Congrats to Kosovo for declaring independence, and condolences for what's bound to fucking happen.
