Since the late 1970s, the liberal ideology has been on a crusade to impose on the world the global rules of the game that would be advantageous to the growth of stakeholder capitalism and increasing financial returns to shareholders. The liberal narrative accompanying this crusade tended to depict the state as an outdated institution that was withering away and was standing in the way of global harmony which was supposed to rest on the freedom of markets and morals. In this context, however, it is rather difficult to understand the unceasing desire of the major political players in the West to mold new states. This article attempts to examine what has been at stake in this political game by taking the case of the state of Kosovo. This endeavor, which may or may not end successfully, was undertaken as a result of the US military campaign that was supported by eighteen other members of NATO.
