Independence for Montenegro

Yesterday, Montenegro, since 1918 a part of Yugoslavia and then of its 1990's successor-state Serbia and Montenegro, voted to resume its independence. Good for Montenegro: its more-or-less unwilling incorporation in the Serbian-led Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1918 was always of doubtful legality. Here's hoping independence, such as it may be in the EU scheme of things, works out better than the late, unlamented Yugoslavia.
