* Kosovo is the straw that broke the camels back. Kosovo's declaration of independence backed by some but vowed illegal by others including Russia who has declared a possibility of war over the issue because Bush is upsetting world order. What they do not understand is that is bush's whole idea! Earlier Palestine said that a Kosovo style Independence with a neutral police force might be the way for them to go. I don't know! I do not see peace there or anywhere on Bush's terms. All of this will only lead to a total world breakdown Bush has been working on since 2003. Following is the latest!
Serbs also organized anti-independence rallies Sunday in other European capitals. In the Austrian capital of Vienna, about 5,000 protesters waved pro-Serbia banners, and a few burned, spit or stomped on American flags before some demonstrators fanned out across the city, throwing bottles as riot police pursued them. In Geneva, 3,000 people massed outside U.N. offices, and in Brussels, Belgium, several hundred Serbs gathered outside EU offices chanting "Kosovo is Serbia" and waving placards that read "Ask any lawyer" and "Don't legalize it."
Sunday's protest in Mitrovica was peaceful, and the smallest of daily rallies held there for a week _ a stark difference from the rioting that broke out Thursday in Belgrade, where demonstrators stormed the U.S. Embassy and set part of it ablaze. The U.S. ambassador to Serbia warned leaders in Belgrade to prevent future violence against diplomatic missions. "I'm very angry at what happened. It had better not happen again," Ambassador Cameron Munter told The Associated Press in an interview. First week of Kosovan independence marked with world protests

Protests are planned in Canada: Organizers of a pair of weekend demonstrations against Kosovo's declaration of independence say they are working to make sure the rallies stay peaceful after a chaotic scene erupting at a protest in Belgrade on Thursday has police prepared for violence in Toronto and Vancouver. In the Toronto protest, organized by five Canadian-Serbian university students and scheduled for 5 p.m. today, up to 10,000 people are expected to gather across the street from the U.S. Consulate on University Avenue to urge the Canadian government not to recognize Kosovo's declaration, according to organizer Jovan Filipovic, a student at Ryerson University. “We're saying, ‘Canadians, we cannot allow this to happen,' ” he said. “If anything, it will bring awareness.”
The west is being warned to tread carefully on Kosovo: Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia less than a week ago has prompted strong reactions around the world. Serbia signaled it will withdraw its ambassador from any country that recognizes the new state. Many of Canada's most important allies – including the United States, the United Kingdom and France – have already recognized Kosovo's independence. However, Ottawa has been silent on the issue so far. Canadiens warn over Kosovo
Meanwhile around the world you have protests and recognition depending on your own stability and selfish interest! First in line for recognition: Afghanistan was among the first to recognize Kosovo's independence, leaping at the chance to acknowledge a majority Muslim nation in Europe. Some in the war-ravaged Central Asian country said the decision was about maintaining strong relations with Washington. George Tsai of Taipei's Chinese Cultural University said the Taiwanese move to recognize Kosovo was an attempt to score points against Beijing, a staunch supporter of Serbia.
Wait and see: Many Arab nations, such as Syria and Egypt, have declined to commit, and no Arab country has recognized Kosovo. "Our Arab region in particular is full of groups of many religions, faiths, identities and nationalities," an editorial in Egyptian paper Al-Akhbar said. "What if Iraq should split into four or five countries, and Lebanon into six regions?" Similar fears have held back many nations in Africa, where only Senegal has recognized Kosovo's independence.
Haven't, and won't: The main reason for opposition - in Spain, Slovakia and elsewhere - appears to be homegrown. Slovakia, part of Czechoslovakia until 1993, has a sizable Hungarian minority and fears encouraging ethnic tensions at home. Spain has dealt for decades with the violent Basque separatist group ETA, which wants to carve out a homeland between Spain and France. Other Spanish regions - most notably economic powerhouse Catalonia - have pressed for more autonomy in moves some say could lead to the country's eventual breakup. as you know, amidst warnings from Washington to tone it down Russia has threatened to use brute military force if it had to, to stop this. Chaos as world ponders Kosovo
* Bush has the Division he needs! It kills me Bush seems to purposely seek out the the most tenuous unstable parts of the world create division and say he must have his way. What the hell is wrong with this idiot? You have to believe division and creating his Forever War is his ulterior motive. No one can be this stupid! I reiterate: Even as I watch Bush ignore all common sense in his drive to totally control us and the entire World I never seem to be blown away by Bush's in your face ignorance of world order and what anyone thinks as he pursues his creation of a new societal, middle east, and World (dis)order! Bush will not quit as he has the entire world in turmoil and it is just beginning. He will soon have more than enough cause to Declare martial order to control us and fight his future wars! We must come together if we are to save our country. It is up to the world now as to what Bush's purposely created division will do to the world and her future!
