Sir: It is salutary to observe that our century is ending as it began, in a Balkan danse macabre.

It just goes to show how irrelevant is our lingering obsession with the dichotomous ideologies of left and right, when most of the world is still concerned with the much more fundamental (and therefore politically incorrect) question of "Who belongs where?"

Of course what the Serbs are doing in Kosovo is wrong and must be stopped, but if we hadn't all lost the plot in 1914, they might not feel the need to be doing it.
