SERBIA THREATENS MILITARY ACTION AFTER KOSOVO VOTES TO CREATE ARMY

Serbia has threatened military action against neighbouring Kosovo after its parliament approved the creation of a new army.

Kosovar MPs voted on Friday to expand the existing Kosovo Security Force into a 5,000-troop army, plus 3,000 reservists.

Belgrade called the move a “direct threat to peace and stability” in the Balkans and lashed out at the United States for supporting the proposal.

Kosovo unilaterally declared independence in 2008, but Serbia does not recognise its former province as a state.

Belgrade insists the new army would violate a UN resolution that brought to an end its bloody crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatists in 1999.

Serbian prime minister Ana Brnabic said armed intervention was “one of the options on the table”.

CIA sending ship full if arms to Kosovo Army

It appears the US's CIA has decided upon which side of the conflict here upon which they are betting; and it doesn't look like that is Serbia's side at all.

This area has been a wellspring of military conflict for years, and was actually part of the history which generated World War 1.
