Forbes Asia;3/24/2008, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p13
The author comments on how to end the violence and turmoil caused by the U.S.-backed independence of Kosovo from Serbia. The author relates how the independence of Kosovo has motivated extreme Kosovar nationalists to drive the Serbs out of Kosovo through intimidation. The author argues that the violence between Kosovars and Serbians should have been avoided if U.S. diplomats have carved out the Serbian territory in Kosovo and cede it to Belgrade. The author suggests the excision of the Serbian enclave in Kosovo in a unilateral manner.
