"Kosovo is lost forever"?

You can't be serious. Do you have any idea how often the boarders change in the Balkans?

At this point, Kfor and NATO are the least of Serbia's problems. When Serbia re-enters its southern province, Kfor and NATO will be a distant memory.

Serbs know that the independence of Kosovo was fought under false pretenses. They'll never forget it. When the time is right, Serbia will once again be complete with its southern province.

Serbia isn't going anywhere and the Albanians can't just pick the province up and move it somewhere far away from Serbia.

Many Serbs (politicians as well as 'ordinary' people) say that Kosovo is not lost until we sign it away (and we won't, or so I hope).
Well, Alsace-Lorraine went back to France, so who knows...

Yes, deadly serious. It’s no use hoping that in 200 years the province will be back under Serbian administration. It’s a pipe dream. If the Serbs make a military move then they will just be seen as the agressor. No U.S. administration is going to turn a blind eye to such a projection of force. It would take another Milosovic in power to retake Kosovo using military force. The result would just be the same as in 1999. Political suicide for that Serb administration and Serbia bombed once again. Yes, in hearts and minds Kosovo will always be part of Serbia, but the realities is that it is never going to happen.
