frm Yugoslavia: Montegnegro becomes independent

The last nail of a united Yugoslavia has been pulled out. In Montenegro a vote for independence from Serbia has succeeded. The people of Montenegro will now have their own state in a democratic transition unlike the wars that split the rest of Yugoslavia years ago. However, the vote was fairly close 55% for independence 45% against. The plebiscite had high showing with 86.3% of Montenegrins going to the polls. Hopefully this will be for the best. I support groups' self-determination, but worry how the outcome will always play out.
