Serbia votes today in their presidential election, with Kosovar Independence weighing heavily on peoples minds.
Also it appears to be a mini Cold War is brewing with another possible regional destablization (though Belgrade promises no violence)
The US and some EU states back Independence for Kosovo, while Russia, Serbia's ally is against it, as is Cyprus, Greece and Spain being highly reluctant of the situation do to their own ethnic enclaves and afraid of the precedent it might take.
Im no right wing hawk, but Russia really scares me. Putin seems to be doing everything possible to prove what a big dick he has on the world stage. And Russians seem to love him. I guess he's brought them stability, but at what price.
I guess being an American, "independence" is in the blood, so i feel pro Kosovo independence.
and for better or for worse i know ive picked up anti Serb government bias from western media and my short time living in Croatia.
Ive also been asked "What if California, or Texas or Florida wanted to break away from the USA. How would you feel"
Good riddance! Ill sign a petition for the Lone Star Republic!
Ha just kidding. Im not sure how I would feel. Im sure there would be plenty of people who would be upset(especially red state folk), just as they were during the civil war when the Union falling apart.
