    I guess someone's incompetent reading of a trade sanctions list some years ago led them to decide Serbia = Kosovo = Montenegro.

    Ooooh Christ, that could do it. Daley Thompson's Decathlon was pulling that trick 30 years ago & six year old me could do it just fine. 30 years later, not so fine.
