    Let’s not be naive about Kosovo. The only reason the US is interested in this little piece of land is because of a planned oil pipeline. The vast majority of Americans don’t even know where Kosovo is on the map and don’t care. So, history will show that a group of people that purposely made a lot of children to one day create a separate state will be backed by an imperialist nation only interested in a pipeline. So one seems to gain independence for another form of dependence – an American colony in Europe.

    Sad state of affairs. Such naive people.
