Why Albania is So Great-- Part 3-- Kosovan Peace

Jumping in Pools continues its series about Albania and the triumphs of the Albanian people. One of these triumphs includes the peaceful nature of Kosovo, despite a terrible war last decade.

Despite the genocide by the Serbian government of Slobodan Milosevic, Kosovo is still trying to live in harmony with its larger neighbor:
That is when tacit cooperation between Belgrade and the EU in Kosovo became concrete. If past patterns had been repeated, both Serb and Albanian hard-liners – and the mafias that smuggle through Kosovo the bulk of the heroin that reaches EU territory – would have exploded the patient peacemaking of Serb and Albanian moderates. They would have orchestrated "ethnic" mob clashes that would have quickly started a fresh cycle of revenge and retaliation.
