As an American in my opinion we should stop pushing for Kosovo's Independence. There is no reason to keep angering the Russians like this. The
Russian elections are coming up and the Russian people have about had it with the US.
Putin has been very patient with the US his successor will not be. The Russian people will choose someone who is going to not only stand up to
Irresponsible American foriegn policy but push back.
We need to seek closer ties with Russia. We are fighting the same enemies whether it be in Chechnya or Afghanistan. We need to realize that and
support Russia's involvement in Chechnya instead being against it. Chechen snipers have killed and maimed US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Polish missile shield, Kososvo's independence, and complaints about Russian operations in Chechnya are irresponsible. I can about guarantee that
these actions and past actions like NATO breaking up Yugoslavia will come back to haunt the West.
