More (lots more) on Kosovo

Lee Hudson Teslik of the Council on Foreign Relations summarizes the implications of Kosovar secession from Serbia, and says, "Kosovo’s secession seems likely to open as many questions as it resolves."

The CFR also has this interview with former Ambassador Richard Holbrooke from December 2007, in which he predicts that Kosovo's declaration of independence may lead to a "huge diplomatic train wreck."

Two weeks ago, The Economist had this article discussing the potential impact of Kosovar independence on Serbia's governing coalition.

An online debate between Marshall F. Harris (pro) and Alan J. Kuperman (con) on the issue of independence for Kosovo is here. Kuperman has an article entitled "Averting the Third Kosovo War" in the January/February issue of The American Interest.

The National Interest has a "Report and Retort" on Kosovo's future between Dimitri Simes, president of the Nixon Center and publisher of The National Interest, and Frank G. Wisner, U.S. special envoy to the talks on Kosovo.
