Kosovo: Serbia inciting minority protests to destabilize

PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) " Kosovo's government early Monday accused neighboring Serbia of trying to destabilize the country as ethnic Serbs blocked roads and conducted other incidents in the north apparently in a dispute over vehicle license plates and identity cards.

Officials in Kosovo had decided to resume the practice of requiring vehicles that enter from Serbia to replace Serbia license plates with Kosovo plates. The reverse is required by Serbia for vehicles from Kosovo that go to Serbia.

Kosovo also is planning to block its ethnic Serb minority from using only the Serbian identity cards when crossing the border.

Putin's Folly has given cover and permission to other countries who wanted to invade a neighbor, but didn't think it would be acceptable behavior.

Now they think it is.

I was almost invited to go there this year. I'd love to visit Eastern Europe one day, but I can't say the Balkans are on my bucket list any time soon.
