The serbian response

The situation in Cosovo has triggered reactions in Serbia, the country to which Cosovo previously belonged. The already strong nationalist movement is building momentum and is likely to gain power.

The rage within Serbia is mainly directed towards USA, the country which has enacted as an important enabler of Cosovo's independence. Today the American embassy has been attacked and burned by a raging mob. I do not really see how USA can calm the situation down, maybe brute force will be needed. An angry mob is hard to control in any situation, and anything diplomatic will take to much time. By the time a diplomatic solution can be reached the damage is already done. USA is surely in a tight spot here...
