- Charles Kupchan, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow, "Independence for Kosovo", Foreign Affairs, November/December 2005 - "Kosovo's independence, however, should not be held hostage to Serbia's inability to trust itself to behave responsibly. The United States and its European partners were too timid in confronting Serbian nationalism throughout most of the 1990s, and much blood was shed as a result. The international community should not make the same mistake today. Serbia's darker instincts need to be extinguished, not accommodated."
