Splitting Kosovo & Serbija in Two or Opening ‘Pandora’s Box’ ?

Serbia and Russia have been pushing for border rearrangements and seems like the US agrees aswell in the two main factors in Kosove (Albanians and Serbs) accept the exchange of territories. Many analysts fear that this would push towards the creation of Ethnic Albania and Ethnic Serbia splitting Macedonia and Bosnia . The repercussions would def be bigger in Bosnia than in other countries but for the Albanians and Serbs it would solve most of their national aims of being part of one single country. The questions on the table are if Serbs, Albanians and Bulgars should remain hostage of Bosnians or Viceversa? Are the ethnic countries the solution to peace and stability in the Balkans?

Looks like an older map probably from 91. Still Bosnia doesn't look to far off from how it is currently, its just now there's a lot less mixed areas.

it's the Balkans... Pandora's box is opened and re-opened on an almost generational basis

however, it is hard to imagine that there would be the sort of political will and consensus to reconfigure the political map of the Western Balkans to that effect without some sort of catastrophe

for example, imagine hypothetically that it could be demonstrated that the peace, stability and prosperity of the Balkans could be ensured by looking to consolidate those that get on (for lack of a better word), split those that don't, and redressing the continuing fragmentation (ie. Balkanisation) of the region, and that that would lead to greater Serbian, Croatian and Albanian nation-states which would incorporate portions of and encompass Montenegro, BiH, Kosovo and Macedonia... how would that work? for example, do the Macedonians (for all their troubles) surrender their own independence simply to be carved up between Albania and Serbia? of course not... if partitioning Kosovo helps to solve that issue, then why doesn't that then serve as a precedent for the Bosnian Serbs, for example, to break away from the Croat-Bosniak Federation? why wouldn't Bosniaks not want to rid themselves of a foe (ie. us Serbs and RS) and align themselves with more of their own allies (Croatia)?

not enough longer term thinking back in the 1990's by everyone which has and will continue to cause unsolvable problems or at least problems with only more brutal solutions (ie. someone wins, someone loses)

Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."
