Two policemen were wounded Monday, with one later dying of his injuries, in an operation to extend central control over North Kosovo. Since the region claimed independence in 2008, its largest remaining majority-Serb enclave has resisted rule from the capital, Pristina. The European Union, which normally backs Kosovo’s Albanian-controlled government, has condemned the operation.
The Kosovo government claimed it wanted to “restore order” in the area, which borders Serbia, but did not describe any specific disorder. Pristina also aims to start a trade war with Serbia; grabbing border posts could help them seal the disobedient Kosovo Serbs off from Serbian goods.
Though the US and Europe helped Kosovo secede from rule by Serbia, they have denied the same privilege to Kosovo’s Serbs, historically a majority in the north. The region is also home to refugees from other parts of Kosovo, having been cleansed in 2004’s ethnic pogroms.
Serbia refuses to recognize the breakaway republic, as do other countries with separatist movements.
The EU is calling for Kosovo to remove the policemen and turn the border posts back over to NATO, whose forces control security in the disputed territory.

Kosovo. A crappy little state that shouldn't even exist. Shame on you America.
20 bucks says this turns out to be a case of "condemn in public, encourage in private".
Wait until the West starts blaming the Serbs again. And…bombing….
By the time we divide all the countries in the world into little ethnic enclaves, there will be over a 1000 countries represented in the UN. The Kosovo movement was just dumb and it will come back to haunt the supporters for years to come.
It'll come back to haunt America when we lose the southwest to Mexico.
It was never really yours. It was occupied by force, since the genocide over the NATIVE AMERICANS was not enough …..
I would say Hernando Cortez probably killed a hundred Indians for every one killed by Anglos in America. But nobody ever says anything about that. My point was more along the lines that America should be looking after its own affairs and not sticking its nose in the Balkans where we had no business at all (at least in my view). What goes around, comes around. Still we all have our own views. I would mention though, that America would have an illegal alien problem with Mexico, even if the southwest had never been part of that country.
Why? It's practically theirs already. Let them have it and watch them emigrate further north. All these Mejico-loving Mejicans residing in the US dread living in Mejico.
Serbia should take advantage of this and go to town on Kosovo and tell NATO to suck eggs if they try to do anything about it. This is why Russia should have finished the job on Georgia back in 2008 so they wouldn't have to worry about this crap later. Shame on Clinton and his war crimes.
Tito was right for anyone who knows the history of Yugoslavia. Kennedy/Nixon loved Yugoslavia because they could divide the Soviets. Tito was right because it stress nationalism over these ethnic clowns. Everyone wants their language and their culture. Christianity is 2000 years old and Islam a little less than that. Useless crap. Instead of Mohammad or Christ, they could fight over the God of Diet Soda vs the God of Sugared Soda. Its all a excuse for stupidity. Singapore succeeds because its business oriented, and the Chinese, Malay, and Indians choose English and education. NATO set this place up for sectarian divide just like Northern Island. But then again the Congress of the United States gets to pay the bills, and Obama gets to declare more NATO wars (using doublespeak, deception, lies) without Congress. How are those funny money debt talks going Obama, front man for the Oligarchy. If the Serbs had US immigrants like AIPAC, Kosovo would be ethnically cleansed while congress would give the Serb leader multiple standing ovations
Go, Kosova, go. KosovA is independent and you, Serbs and Serb-lovers, can only suffer.
Apparently they can also shoot your cops.
During the second world war.., Hitler used the Sunny Muslims in Balkan to enter and fight the supporters of USSR.., they were called Partisans.., in 1990 when the Balkan wars started Madeline Albright and Bill Clinton did the same thing supporting Hashim Taci the leader of Balkan Mafia whom is also a Sunny Muslim to divide Yugoslavia into what it is to day. Now Obama and Hillary Clinton doing it again in Libya using the leftovers from Iraq and Afghanistan war where their barbarians means been once again proven. Here it needs to be said that not all Sunny Muslims are as Hashim Taci nor they supporting the barbarians fractions in Libya.., if that was the case then the majority of Libyan people would support the Libyan council and they would have won the war by now.., and NATO know that.
Is just to point out that US and NATO are the one which uses these elements for their land grabbing and expending their militarism into Africa.., if NATO is able to conquer and occupy Libya then the world will see more of this kind of brutality by US/NATO in other part of Africa.
Here we go again… What is it about these Muslims working tirelessly to make Breivik sound sane and brave.
