Kosovar albanians had a reason to rebel. The reason wasnt anything like they wanted to keep slavery.

Besides, rebels and traitors are different things.

What was unique about their situation? Paying Unreasonable taxes and tarrifs? The south did that. In fact it was writen into their constitution for a ban on high protective tarrifs.


Please, the reason one can justify the Declaration of Independence is *not* the fact that the taxes where high but that they were levied without the subjects having any say on it.

The south *did* have a legal course to try to prevent tariffs: Congress. Theat they failed to mobilize the political support neccessary does not justify rebellion. It would be a vastly different thing had they never been asked.
