    For recent secessions I'd look into Kosovo and South Sudan. There are a whole bunch of legal issues, and possibilities for war in both countries (South Sudan more so than Kosovo). They are the only two recent secessions that I can think of that were successful. Also, East Libya might break off from Libya.

    Obviously you give your opinion without having any idea about the case of Basque area in Spain.

    I think you must have at less a little idea about one subject before of speaking, in the case of

    basque area is evently that you don't have any idea.

    We don't want the independence, small ignorant!!!!!
