Congrats, best of luck, and peace. A new Kosovo is born.

Kosovar kids.

A field like no other
Heaven above it
Heaven below.

Part of a poem on Kosovo, written Vasko Popa. Earth Erect. Translated from Serbian by John Matthias.

A brief history of Kosovar epics and Serbian poetry linked here. And even if the name of the very poem is "The Battle of Kosovo, please don't give me that crap about "how natural wars and battles are there where people have been fighting each other for centuries".

Google Kosovo and take a look at photos of little kids burned to death etc. There is nothing "natural" in there. Just enourmous pain, shame and disgrace.

Our civilisation must think wars are avoidable, and act accordingly.

Othervise we do not have a civilisation in Europe after all.

Congrats, Kosovo!

Live in peace.

And hopefully Serbia and Russia, as well as we all, will let you do excactly that.
