Okay, so Kosova has declared independance, against the wishes of China and Russia. This site (http://www.kosovothanksyou.com/) lists the Countries that has recognized Kosova since the declaration.

I post it because, interestingly, Taiwan was on the list however was since removed due to protests from people E-Mailing from China (and apparently Taiwan, but I doubt it). Basically, the Chinese believe we don't have the right to recognize the Country.

That statement just makes my head spin.

Oh, and if you saw the hot little number, Condi Rice's speech on the issue... when she was going on about it not setting a precedant, she was talking to Taiwan in a round-about way. It's nice to be recognized while not being recognized.

So, lets see if Ive got this right. China doesnt recognize Taiwan as a nation, therefore China doesnt recognize Taiwans ability to recognize another nation. Somebody better tell them to RECOGNIZE! <---- pronounced with urban accent , emphasized with neck moving side to side

Once again we got Russin trying to convince Europe and itself that it's not an impotent redundant superpower when in truth we know it is. This situation is the same as Ukraine and all those other ex soviet states that have defied Russia and went for a western lifestyle. Russia did nothing to stop this whole Blakans conflict and it could have, it offered no help or assistance in the NATO missions and dod nothing in the elctions or redrawing of the area and now it wants a voice because it risks losing another state it can bully well tough. What Russia is scared of is Georgia decideing it wants full independence and a western approach to life, now maybe jujst maybe Russia needs ro ask it's self why these former states are turning thier back on Russia after all they do have a choice.

Of course thats not to say this a risky startegy, of course if it works and Kosovo becomes stable and certain states try not to take it then the whole region will regain stability if though Kosovo collapses on itself the results for the the region don't bear thinking about.

Russia and China are just way too big. It works just fine and dandy with Countries like the US and Canada, where the left hand is aware of what the right hand is doing... but for others like the two I mentioned above... it's just a right old mess.
