The Serbs will fight again for Kosovo.
As for Russia/France and the rest...always a crapshoot with such personalities. Could go any direction.
The better way to look at it is what's in it for the U.S. if Kosovo *does* become independent.
Now compare to our position if Kosovo remains quiet. Judge. Balance. Decide. Act.
Frankly, I see no reason to provoke bloodshed there. What's our gain in such a deal?
With what? A bunch of yahoos with AK-47s?
What's our gain in such a deal?
If we're Serbs, nothing.
If we're Americans, on the other hand, putting the present instability in Southern Europe down will allow us to concentrate those diplomatic and military resources presently devoted to that region elsewhere - something we've been looking forward to doing for some time. Hence our referring to the current Kosovo negotiations as the "Final Status".
