Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And we believe Kosovo is ours. We can differentiate about the way we need to go to achieve the goal but we all, up and down to the last one, believe that Kosovo is ours and that Albanians being reality, can only be our guests there...guests in our house.

Sounds like the Likud position on 'Judea and Samaria' (i.e. the West Bank). I guess it's no coincidence that the Israeli right tended to dislike the intervention in Kosovo.

I remember that back in the nineties many Poles I knew liked to say that in a way the Soviet Union's annexation and ethnic cleansing of what had been Eastern Poland had been a favour. If they hadn't, we might well have gone down the Serbian path. Same martyrdom complex, long history of oppression by an empire which shared a religion (Orthodoxy) with the local majority there, ugly civil war within WWII with some of the Ukranian groups collaborating with the Nazis... an alternate history experiment - the Galician war and the NATO bombardment of Poland.
