Heron: ontariolightning: Grabs mic"Kosovo biatches"Drops mic.Putin out.He may be thinking this but there's a big difference here; the Serbians were actually killing Kosovars. They began attacking people living in that region which they saw as ethnic enemies, they carried out atrocities against them, Kosovar militias rose up in response, and by the time NATO intervened it was a battle between two established and separate polities each fielding its own organized military. What Russia is doing is claiming that riots which they have instigated, by playing upon inter-communal rivalries which they have long cultivated through support for pro-Russian, right-wing paramilitary groups and political parties, give them the right to invade a neighboring country which they have, since Putin took office, insisted "should" belong to Russia.So the Kosovo-Serbia, Ukraine-Crimea/Eastern Ukraine parallels are superficial, at best.
