Recent statements by senior US officials concerning north Kosovo and Albanian efforts to subdue the northern Serbs suggest a willingness by Washington to accept a violent outcome. The Obama Administration – while seeking UN consensus on other important foreign policy issues – seems to be following with Kosovo the unilateral approach more characteristic of President Bush.
During the July 6th session of the UN Security Council, the US comments appear to make clear that the American government is indeed quite willing to see a “resolution” of the Kosovo issue through a collapse of the peacekeeping effort and any chance for a negotiated compromise agreement.
Why does the US support a dangerous unilateral approach in Kosovo while working to develop international consensus on issues such as Iran and North Korea? Probably for a mixed bag of reasons:
including becoming a haven for Moslem fundamentalists and for international organized crime and for destabilizing the region in the quest for a “Greater Albania.” Easier to try to appease them by giving them support for grabbing the north.
