In related news, Serbian police have decided, "Okay fuck you Kosovo, we're going home to Serbia."

That seems like a sort of offhand way of saying "Okay we recognize your independence" to me, but who am I to say.

Maybe they're just trying to wash their hands of any coming violence?

Yeah, but yesterday Russia's Foreign Minister blatantly said "we will ensure the unity of Serbia with brute strength if necessary, that is, we will take military measures if it comes to that."

So, they could be moving out of the military's way.

Man that's what I'm worried the most about. If it's Russia vs. NATO, considering NATO built the Durrės-Tiranė-Kukės highway expressly as a means of providing a supply line for KFOR, I can assure you that there probably ain't a spot on that road that isn't gonna get bombed.

That road will end up looking like Kandahar trails. In other news: Ladies, if you don't want to die virgin, 16 year old canadian guy ready for action!

Funnily enough, the BBC are advocating growing your own wheat. They say it's because there's a world shortage, but what if it's because the end of the world is coming and we should start trying to do everything we've never done?

I'm afraid my list of things I've never done and would like to does not include frullic.

Cool. Serbs inside of Kosovo now have guns, and they're shooting at U.N. and NATO troops.

Hey cool I'm gonna start asking the Albanians in the old part of my neighborhood and see if I can buy an AK and some ammo for like $50.

Canadian dollars are worth more than USD now, you should be fine. You will need to pay for the whole deal of smuggling it in though, for some reason canada doesn't like people importing grenades.

So, did you hear about that special $600 dollar economic incentive being given out around here?

The mutually-assured destruction argument may not be entirely relevant anymore, because when you KNOW retaliation makes the complete annihilation of the planet a serious consideration, you're not going to want to do something like that, now are you? It's just a matter of who makes the first and only strike, and President Bush has got enough of a shit reputation as it is. He doesn't need a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia or her allies under his belt.

You're acting under the assumption that the highest cause that any leader sees is the survival and prosperity of the human race as a whole. What would be more accurate is that world leaders are concerned with the size of their "e-peen" relative to those of other world leaders. The best way to make your leader-peen bigger, is to say, "well I'm prepared to fuck everyone for the sake of proving that I'm right and that my country is teh bestzorzlol." This is how global politics works more often than not sadly.

Grenades are for pussys. The Finnish beat the might of the Soviet Union with vodka bottles full of petrol, and they're all alcoholics with weird eyes.

Seriously the finnish army were like sitting round one morning after a binge and one of them was still drunk and he was all 'lets fill these empty vodka bottles full of petrol and chuck them at Russian tanks'.

And so they did it, and then the tank crews were all running round on fire and the tanks were exploding and the Finnish were like 'oh shit, looks like we may not have to queue for bread after all'.

What I don't understand is this: Serbia is pissed at Kosovo. Kosovo is the only one they might have any reasonable cause for being pissed. And they ransack foreign Embassies, Molotov their own police, agree-without-agreeing that Kosovo is independent by withdrawing all the state-supported institutions and government facilities from the area, and *destroy their own fucking capital city and government*, and then they say "YEAH FUCK YOU AMERICA THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!"

Seriously nothing they have done has damaged Kosovo in any way, save for the pathetically small violent outbursts by the Serb minority in Mitrovica, and they do this shit and they're like "TAKE THAT KOSOVO!" I swear I will never fucking understand Serbia.

I swear I will never fucking understand Serbia.

Only a Serb will understand a Serb but even then there is some difficulty in communication. Hence, a common exchange between Serbian males will result in a) drininking, b) violence or c) communal violence. A combination of these outcomes is highly probable.

I also believe that this may be the case with Croatians.

So how about that Tibet?

China will never relinquish its suzerainty over Tibet due to that large ore body under the Plateau.

Someone tell me why Serbia wants Kosovo so badly. Because, reading the Wikipedia article, I can't fathom why. It'd be like if Texas left the union. Just let them go, man.

Texas at least has some economic value while Kosovo seems to only have organized crime and a steady stream of willing prostitutes.  Or at least it did when I was there in 2000.

Doesn't Texas extract the most oil out of all of the union? I think that would be useful enough not to encourage them to leave.

Or is that Alaska?
