AP - A week of protests highlighted by the torching of the U.S. Embassy has shown the depth of Serb outrage over the loss of Kosovo — raising questions about whether the Balkans might once again slip into dangerous instability.

The West argues it is natural for Kosovo's ethnic Albanians to have an independent homeland in a territory where they represent 90 percent of the population — especially after Milosevic's crackdown on separatists killed thousands.

But ask many people about giving up Kosovo on the streets of this drab capital and they would fail to understand the Western viewpoint. Serbs overwhelmingly feel it's like asking an American whether Los Angeles should be ceded to Mexico because many Latinos live there.
