International Politics - Palestine

It'll be interesting to see how the world responds to Palestine if they go ahead and declare themselves an independent state. I completely agree that Palestine deserves to be recgonised as an independent country a hell of a lot more than Kosovo did but am intrigued as to what certain countries who supported Kosovo will say.

Personally I think Kosovo is just the first of many areas which will claim full independence and soverignity in the coming years because of this move and the backing it's received. Just waiting to hear any moves in Spain next - although I'm sure the seperatist states in Georgia will get there before the Basque region as they'll be heavily backed by Russia to make the move to spite and test the western-backed Kosovo departure.
