A) The proposed retail store can make money despite being in the middle of a war zone.

B) Wars are profitable for retail.

C) Kosovo is not as politically unstable as Beirut.

D) Opponents of a new construction company in Kosovo are probably biased.

E) The proposed company in Kosovo will do better than the construction company in Beirut.
