An interesting week or two ahead

The Serb region of Kosovo today will declare its independence from the Serbian state. Serbia, along with their Russian patrons, will not be pleased, while Kosovar independence has the full backing of the European Union and the United States.

Meanwhile, Hizballah's terrorism chief Hassan Nasrallah is calling for "open war" against Israel, with 50,000 Hizballah "activists" massed in southern Lebanon. That 50,000 number seems unlikely, but certainly there are more than a handful there.

Update: Kosovo's gone and done it.
