Biodun Iginla at Fire Dog Lake offers a very reader friendly time-line of the historical events leading up to last week’s torching of the US embassy in Belgrade. He also lists the countries that have not, so far, recognized Kosovo’s independence (and finds a pattern).

It’s great to see such an informed and detailed post about a the historical foundations of a leading foreign policy dilemma find itself on a popular mainstream blog like Fire Dog Lake. Meanwhile, for more frequent updates I recommend readers check out Laura Rozen, who cut her teeth as a reporter in the Balkans in the 1990s and covers the issue extensively on her blog, War and Piece.
