Just how many rogue armies has the CIA put in place in recent years? Taliban and now Kosovar Albanian? I'm waiting for revelations on Chechnya. If the CIA is behind the recent thuggery in Macedonia, Kosovo and Serbia, it may show an extreme political sophistication. A short while ago Serbia was a pariah and there was great sympathy for the Kosovar Albanians. We might very well have seen a Kosovar Albanian state leading eventually to a greater Albania. Now the extremist Albanian fighters have acted so badly that sympathy has turned back to Serbia, and there seems little chance of any new Albanian state.
