1. the right to self-determination IS democracy
2. Kosovo was no Serb land in the first place. Serbs, like all South Slavs are relative newcomers in the Balkans. a) Kosovo was Illyrian before being Serb
b) Albanians = Neo-Illyrians, Illyrians were Palaeo-Albanians
a) + b) => Kosovo was returned to his rightful owners, thanks to the US and the Western European countries
Some say Albanians are no Illyrians, but Thracian
Guess what? Pirot area in Serbia used to be Thracian, it was stolen by the Slavs and it belongs to Serbia now.
The same for some areas of Vojvodina.
This means Serbia is illegally occupying Thraco-Albanian lands making Albano-Thracian "occupation" of Kosovo rightful, just, righteous (you name it)
