With all due respect, the author, coming from the region where conflicts run for centuries, should understand that this conflict does not have an easy answer. Phrases that we listen to over and over again: Serbia and Kosovo in EU, European Serbia side-by-side with European Kosovo, etc. are nothing but phrases. Just read the comments bellow and you will realize the willingness of people to find a solution - there is none. You will find a bunch of erroneous historical facts but no will to work on a solution! Being a Serb from Vojvodina (north Serbia) I have nothing against Albanians. I don't feel any animosity toward them. However, I too agree that Serbia cannot surrender Kosovo. The reason is over 100,000 Albanians still living in Serbia outside of Kosovo. Once Serbia recognizes Kosovo secession, that will be the sign for the rest of the Albanian population to demand the same. There are arguments that EU and the USA will not support those aspirations. Yeah right !! Western promises last just as long as their interests. As soon as they change - the promises are gone. Conclusion: the right to self determination cannot be stronger than the right to defend ones country. Serbs don't have a spare country and they must defend the only one they have. Albanians do and it is called Albania.
