Kosovo is part of Serbia that wants to be a separate country. Kosovo has always been part of Serbia, and there are some of the oldest Serbian churches that are currently under protect, they are about 90% of oldest saved Serbian culture.
For people who say Kosovo is part of Albania, they are deadly wrong. if you dig a bit in history, you will find that Albania was part of Serbia that under the influence of big powers became separate country. Great powers tryed to prevent Serbia from getting powerful.
Kosovo is now days (October '11) trying to get their own country by blocking roads and using warnings. Since Serbia (along with couple other countries, for ex: Russia) said they will never support idea of Kosovo becoming country, the "case" will be open for a long time.

A loyal and brave country that is widely misunderstood as a bad guy for some strange reason. Not perfect, but certainly not evil. They have a rich culture and a very unique language, as well as very intellectual people (however, out of all those smart ones, it's usually the dumb ones that are placed in positions of power). Serbia consists of many people who's pride matters most, and they seldom (for a lack of better term) take shit from anyone, and even though sometimes they are no match, they still keep their ground. Serbia is a beautiful country, with beautiful women. However, it's currently going through a lot of crap, which is a damn shame.
