Kosovo Declares Independence from Serbia

“I feel the heartbeat of our ancestors. We, the
leaders of our people, democratically elected, through this declaration proclaim
Kosovo an independent and sovereign state.”
- Kosovo’s prime minister, 2/18/2008

US, Britain, France and Germany publicly recognize Kosovo as a nation. Kosovo has suffered years of bloody civil strife and UN rule.

My history professor would call this a win for liberalism. Seems like its a good week in Kosovo, hopefully it will last for them. Anything is better than civil war, revolution and UN rule.
