    From my point of view partition might be the most pragmatic solution for this frozen conflict. International community has squandered billions of euros for capacity building a multiethnic state with European perspective. During its time as international protectorate Kosovo has moved more monoethnic direction where different enthnic groups hardly even tolerate each other. I have summarized in my blog the outcome as follows:From my point of view partition might be the most pragmatic solution for this frozen conflict.

During its time as international protectorate Kosovo has moved more monoethnic direction where different enthnic groups hardly even tolerate each other. I have summarized in my blog the outcome as follows:

    “Kosovo … a Serbian province, occupied and now international protectorate administrated by UN Kosovo mission; as quasi-independent pseudo-state has good change to become next “failed” or “captured” state; today’s Kosovo is already safe-heaven for war criminals, drug traffickers, international money laundry and radical Wahhabists – unfortunately all are also allies of western powers”.


    So why should Serbs take this backward progress and integrate this kind of society?
