    Kosovo Declares Independence From Serbia
    By NEBI QENA and WILLIAM J. KOLE 1 hour ago

    PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) Kosovo's parliament declared the disputed territory a nation on Sunday, mounting a historic bid to become an "independent and democratic state" backed by the U.S. and European allies but bitterly contested by Serbia and Russia.

    Fireworks lit up the night sky over Kosovo's capital Pristina, where thousands of giddy ethnic Albanians braved subfreezing temperatures to ride on the roofs of their cars, singing patriotic songs and chanting: "KLA! KLA!" the acronym for the now-disbanded rebel Kosovo Liberation Army.

    "Kosovo is a republic an independent, democratic and sovereign state," Kosovo's parliament speaker Jakup Krasniqi said as the chamber burst into applause.

    Serbia immediately denounced the declaration as illegal, and Russia also rejected it, demanding an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.

    President Bush said the U.S. would work to prevent violence after the declaration and the European Union appealed for calm, mindful of the risk that the declaration could plunge the turbulent Balkans back into instability.

I'm sure the backroom deals have already been done and America and the EU will recognise them Monday. Russia seems PISSED.

Well, if he had secretly gone to Iran or Iraq or Syria with the information, I would gladly call him a traitor. But he went to the Sunday Times instead, so all the world would know what the Israeli government and military was up to.
