Troubling news indeed. The US is expected to recognise Kosovo. Russia and China are not.
Its a very interesting conflict now. In Kosovo, a province of Serbia, the population is about 92% Muslim. Serbia will never give up this land as it has sites of ethnic importance (old churches, old battle sites where the Ottomans were defeated, etc.)
Interesting, muslims in this part of the world have done a concerted effort to increase thier populations in hopes of overthrowing the current governments.
Its not surprising to see families with 7-12 children. Many families in fact.
Now imagine in 50 years if Texas or some other state is 60% Mexican. And they declare independence after the US refuses to provide spanish speaking schools, hospitals, the police is 85% white etc. Or if a Black rebel group forms an independence movement. How would our government react? Yet we support this new nation. I know the analogy is not exact, or as intricate as the Kosovo situation. Just something to think about.
