Good News: Russians Threaten Military Intervention on Kosovo

Its probaby a bluff, most experts think its just meant to fire up the already pissed off Serbians in order to escalate the situation.  You can read the article to see the typical milquetoast stock responses from the State Department, I don't think there was anything particularly noteworthy.  What is interesting is how many countries are nervous or refusing to recognize Kosovo because of their own separatist movements.

Thus far NATO troops seem to have it under control, but this could Kosovo situation could become a real pain in the ass given our commitments in other regions.  Britain, France and Germany have also recognized Kosovo's independence, hopefully they'll be willing to do what's needed in the Balkans if it does get nasty there.
