Pretty much what Bill says. It's nothing that sparks interest in the major countries, so places like the Balkans can do what they wish.
If 'states rights' and 'self determination' were truly determinative, the entire world would be very, very different. 300 years is not that long when one has the advantage of modern historical thought. Sykes-Picot: Babylon, Sumer, Assyria. Couldn't happen because of promises by major powers to the Hashemites during War-I. Not to mention that self determination is a worm that works within the arrogant little weasels that try it as a basis of policy.
Oh, gosh, oh, how we can work the necessaries. Oh, gosh, oh, how much we don't know jack-all about that whole frikkin region. And oh, gosh, oh, some stinking general thinks that some combat troops can get this done. Cannot believe how utterly stupid and incompetent our "Generals" are. They are nothing but political lick-spittle animals. But that's what you get with a military that has been sucked into the political realm. Sigh. Good luck getting a rational response from those idiots. Nothing but Obama with a huge chest full of fake medals and $5500 of gold braided hats and shoulder pads, and sleves, and collar crap, and silk stripes down the pants (Officers, General, class A, blue).
We are so utterly screwed. Oh, well, no one really cares do they? Ciao. JWE
BTW, was watching the Scottish vote. Didn't think they should break away. The secessionists are utter statists and Scotts would rue the day they went off by themselves, but hey, their choice. I believe in rational suicide. It improves the gene pool when the idiots actually do the deed. Good to see that most Scotts are are brighter than than that.
