Warmongers are getting fearful over Kosovo
A somewhat hysterical piece in the Guardian from Timothy Garton Ash, who when he is not shilling for war is actually an Oxford professor. The line is that the Serbs "know" that Kosovo is lost and all it needs is for Serbia and Kosovo to be admitted to the European Union for everything to be sweet, light and post-modern.
A more likely outcome is for the Serbian army to get the green light from Moscow and then we shall see the Serbian flag snapping proudly in the breeze over every part of Kosovo. The warmongers will howl, they will rage and the rest of us will just ignore them.
Globalisation began its advance in Kosovo in 1999. Let us all hope that 2008 marks its final demise. There can be nowhere more fitting for that final death knell than Kosovo, where it all began.
