"You can rebuild a church."
And who will rebuild them, Albanians? They're erasing Serbian history, how do you rebuild that?

Well, since the majority of the population in Kosovo is Albanian, I don't see that many will be rebuilt. But this was the situation before Slobo's speech in 1987, too, wasn't it?
I will admit, like the current Serbian government does, that this whole period was a ten-year civil war in which Serbia tried to hang on to as much territory as possible. It should never have been a holy crusade to save Orthodox Serbia, but Slobo turned it into one, and thus made the situation worse. I recall the reason the Slovenes won is their part of Yugoslavia had the plants with the tanks and AT weapons in them and they were able to stop the Serbian attack. That doesn't mean that Serbia didn't attack.
I actually think that there is a chance for peace, which in this case is a minimum of dissatisfaction on all sides. But Kosovo is going to be a EU-quasi colony for decades. It can't be helped.
