The European Union was in Kosovo under a law and order police mission. That was until they withdrew because of violence from the Serbs.
The Balkans troubles were suppose to be the proving ground in which the European Union would justify its existence. Wars were suppose to be a thing of the past as European states gathered together and policed their own. Instead, the region proves yet again Europe's paralysis. The United States is needed to prevent utter choas as was the case in the Bosnia War and the Kosovo War of 1999. While Europe cries across the Atlantic for help do not expect the European supernationalists to stop their cries against American intervention elsewhere.
