Serbian premier assassinated. Well, at least he's not an Archduke and there's no tangle of alliances in Europe any more…

wow.......
Good god. Milosevic and his band of murderous scumbags' fingerprints are all over this. Hopefully this won't be another tinderbox. And while their aren't any formal alliances there may well be some sort of split resulting from this with potential international implications.

Well, I don't think it's quite that serious; as long as Serbia's constitution is allowed to work, there's a clear indication as to who gets to run the country. I was going to say something about the UN being here now, but scratch that, it's not going to bolster my argument...

One sobering thought is that if Serbia is still like this after all the involvment of the UN, NATO, and CSCE, then just imagine what it's going to be like trying to put Iraq (a/k/a the Balkans in Mesopotamia) back together.

Nope, Georgie Boy has taken care of that problem.

I think you mean "except the UK and Spanish governments".
