Horror Show in the Balkans

Sol­diers of the 21st Waf­fen SS (“Skan­der­beg”) Divi­sion, fore­run­ners of the Koso­vo Lib­er­a­tion Army

[2]COMMENT: Over the years, we have cov­ered the dis­mem­ber­ment of the for­mer Yugoslavia [3] and the fun­da­men­tal mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the nature of the com­bat­ants who fought against the for­mer Yugosla­vian gov­ern­ment and the Serbs.

In addi­tion to the Croa­t­ian re-cre­ation of the Ustashi [4]col­lab­o­ra­tionist forces that allied with Ger­many dur­ing World War II [5], the Mus­lim pop­u­la­tions of the for­mer Yugoslavia have reca­pit­u­lat­ed Waf­fen SS for­ma­tions [6].

In addi­tion to the re-cre­ation of the Han­jar Divi­sion (13th Waf­fen SS) in Bosnia [7], the Koso­vo Lib­er­a­tion Army fea­tured the sons and grand­sons of  fas­cist fight­ing for­ma­tions from the Sec­ond World War II–particularly the 21st Waf­fen SS (Skan­der­beg) Divi­sion [8]

Inter­est­ing­ly (and per­haps sig­nif­i­cant­ly) the comman­der of the inter­na­tional peace keep­ing force in Koso­vo was Ger­man Gen­eral Klaus Rein­hardt [9], the son of Fritz Rein­hardt, the Deputy Min­is­ter of Finance dur­ing the Third Reich.

Sep­a­rat­ing Koso­vo from Ser­bia, Ger­many has been the dri­ving force in keep­ing this out­law state with­in an enve­lope of inter­na­tion­al respectabil­i­ty. In effect, Koso­vo has become a Ger­man colony [10]. As can be seen in the arti­cle excerpt­ed below, inter­na­tion­al opin­ion does not share the Ger­man out­look on Koso­vo.

Under for­mer Koso­vo Lib­er­a­tion Head Thaci’s rule, that coun­try has become an epi­cen­ter of orga­nized crime, man­i­fest­ing some tru­ly hor­ri­fy­ing activ­i­ties. [11] In addi­tion to traf­fick­ing in human organs [11], Thaci report­ed­ly main­tains a harem of sex­u­al slaves, whose fideli­ty is enforced by armed guards using dead­ly force.

Appar­ent­ly, some of the per­son­nel from KFOR [12] and EULEX [13] are among the recip­i­ents of the sex­u­al favors Thaci com­mands, there­by solid­i­fy­ing his hold on the coun­try.

It is also inter­est­ing to note that Koso­vo is viewed by the UNPO [14] as its first major suc­cess. (Head­ed by Karl von Hapsburg–formerly mar­ried to Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza–the UNPO pur­ports to cham­pi­on down­trod­den pop­u­la­tions [15]. It actu­al­ly appears to be work­ing to frag­ment larg­er nations by eth­ni­cal­ly desta­bi­liz­ing them [16]. the ulti­mate ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the UNPO’s activ­i­ties appear to be the Under­ground Reich and the transna­tion­al cor­po­ra­tions. The UNPO is cur­rent­ly cham­pi­oning the Afrikan­ers from the apartheid regime of South Africa.)

“Koso­vo Prime Min­is­ter Owns Harem with 52 Slaves”; MINA [Mace­don­ian Inter­na­tion­al News Agency]; 11/13/2012. [17]

EXCERPT: A Ukrain­ian woman who man­aged to escape from what she called “The World’s Hell Hole” gave an inter­view with details about Kosovo’s Prime Min­is­ter Hasim Thaci and his harem, in which 52 slaves “worked” day and night serv­ing the prime min­is­ter, as well as oth­er politi­cians and busi­ness­men.

The loca­tion of the harem was on an inter­sec­tion of streets Shaip Spahi­ja and Bedri Sha­la, in the base­ment of a large build­ing spe­cial­ly designed to serve as a “harem.”

“None of the girls were from Koso­vo, there were few from the Balka­ns, about ten from Rus­sia, one from Cameroon, two Chi­nese women etc” stat­ed the Ukrain­ian.

Accord­ing to her, the build­ing has sev­er­al VIP areas where Thaci and his friends have orgies.

“Most of the peo­ple who arrive here are old­er, very few are younger. Many of them are for­eign diplo­mats, includ­ing offi­cers from EULEX and KFOR. The girls are not allowed to say “No”. One of the girls called Dolores from Colom­bia protest­ed the con­di­tions dur­ing our lunch time in the cafe­te­ria. She was shot dead by Thaci’s body­guards” says the Ukrain­ian wit­ness, who went by her ini­tials N.M.

N.M. stat­ed she was “involved” with Thaci only once when he came to the harem heav­i­ly intox­i­cat­ed and drugged.

The Ukrain­ian gave an inter­view for mul­ti­ple Balkan news­pa­pers. She claimed it is vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble to escape Thaci’s harem as there are always at least five armed body­guards secur­ing the area. Out of the five, there is always one from Chech­nya. . . .

“The Log­ic of War”; german-foreign-policy.com; 11/01/2012. [18]

EXCERPT: The Euro­pean Court of Audi­tors (ECA) is mak­ing seri­ous accu­sa­tions against the Ger­man-EU Koso­vo occu­pa­tion pol­i­cy. Accord­ing to the ECA’s report pub­lished Tues­day, not much can be seen of the “rule of law,” that the EU for years has been pre­tend­ing to estab­lish in the region that had seced­ed from Ser­bia in vio­la­tion of inter­na­tion­al law. Instead, lev­els of gen­er­al cor­rup­tion and par­tic­u­lar­ly of orga­nized crime remain “high.” This has “not changed con­sid­er­ably” since the occu­pa­tion began in the sum­mer of 1999, writes the EU author­i­ty. NATO invad­ed that south Ser­bian province in the sum­mer of 1999. Under its con­trol and with Berlin’s active sup­port, the KLA mafia gang led by Kosovo’s cur­rent Prime Min­is­ter, Hashim Thaci, became the strongest local pow­er. The ECA report, once again, shows the con­se­quences of Berlin’s repeat­ed rever­sion to ele­ments — such as the KLA — in the frame­work of strate­gi­cal­ly moti­vat­ed mil­i­tary oper­a­tions. With their help, wars can be won, but their social qual­i­ties are dia­met­ri­cal­ly opposed to a humane devel­op­ment in the region tar­get­ed by Ger­man inter­ven­tions.

Drip-Fed by the EU

The report of the Euro­pean Court of Audi­tors (ECA), pub­lished Tues­day, begins with a short reca­pit­u­la­tion of recent devel­op­ments in Koso­vo. It recalls how NATO invad­ed in the sum­mer of 1999 and — in the name of the UN — took con­trol of this south Ser­bian province; how its for­mal seces­sion was pre­pared and — in vio­la­tion of inter­na­tion­al law — final­ly imposed in Feb­ru­ary 2008. In spite of the mas­sive pres­sure par­tic­u­lar­ly from Ger­many and the USA, Koso­vo has been rec­og­nized by only 91 coun­tries. Berlin has not been even able to pre­vail with­in the EU: Five EU mem­ber coun­tries con­tin­ue to con­sid­er the region part of Ser­bia — in accor­dance with the terms of inter­na­tion­al law.[1] In defi­ance of all resis­tance to this ille­gal seces­sion, Prišti­na has been receiv­ing bil­lions in sub­ven­tions from west­ern donor coun­tries since 1999. Accord­ing to the ECA, between 1999 and 2007 alone, it received 3.5 bil­lion Euros — two thirds of which orig­i­nat­ed in the bud­gets of the EU and its mem­ber coun­tries. An addi­tion­al 1.2 bil­lion Euros had been pro­vid­ed for the peri­od 2009 — 2011. Koso­vo, which has not been rec­og­nized by one-fifth of the EU mem­ber states, is today the main — per capi­ta — recip­i­ent of EU aid.

The Mafia in Pow­er

In this con­text, the “Euro­pean Union Rule of Law Mis­sion in Koso­vo,” EULEX is of par­tic­u­lar impor­tance, because of the social sit­u­a­tion. Before the attack on Yugoslavia, in March 1999, Ger­many and NATO had already begun to arm the mafia mili­tia of the archa­ic clan-dom­i­nat­ed back hills of Koso­vo against Bel­grade. Dur­ing the war, the KLA actu­al­ly func­tioned as the ground forces of NATO’s bombers. When the com­bat end­ed, they had devel­oped into the strongest force of the South-Ser­bian province. Their leader, at the time, Hasim Thaci, has been Kosovo’s Prime Min­is­ter, since 2008. Since the 1990s, the mafia activ­i­ties of the head of gov­ern­ment and his cur­rent entourage have reg­u­lar­ly been the object of inter­na­tion­al crit­i­cism. (german-foreign-policy.com reported.[2]) EULEX was there­fore giv­en the task of estab­lish­ing prin­ci­ples of rule of law in Koso­vo. EULEX, with its 2,500 employ­ees, is the largest cri­sis oper­a­tion that the EU has ever had.

Mis­man­age­ment

The ECA has ren­dered a dev­as­tat­ing ver­dict against EULEX not only for anom­alies that could be con­sid­ered sim­ply mis­man­age­ment. Accord­ing to the ECA, the EU Com­mis­sion sup­ports the estab­lish­ment of an inde­pen­dent infor­ma­tion sys­tem for the bor­der police of Koso­vo, rather than the cre­ation of a uni­fied sys­tem for the entire police force — as the EULEX had demand­ed. This EU author­i­ty acknowl­edged that there sim­ply had been no coor­di­na­tion dur­ing prepa­ra­tions. Besides, the imple­men­ta­tion of both projects was “sig­nif­i­cant­ly delayed,” the sup­ply of the equip­ment was more than a year late. In any case, the pri­ma­ry objec­tive for these mea­sures had been to replace a long since exist­ing infor­ma­tion sys­tem, sim­ply because it was intro­duced by the USA, with a new ful­ly EU-stan­dards com­pli­ant sys­tem. Imple­men­ta­tion of the new sys­tem was dif­fi­cult because of the Koso­vo author­i­ties’ pref­er­ence to con­tin­ue with the exist­ing sys­tem. This was in no case, a pro­mo­tion of effi­cient police work, crit­i­cized the ECA.[3]

Orga­nized Crime

The fact that, at best, Koso­vo has made “lim­it­ed progress in the strug­gle against orga­nized crime” after years of EU engage­ment is even more seri­ous. Accord­ing to the ECA, the orga­nized crime sit­u­a­tion, in fact, has “changed very lit­tle” since 1999, remain­ing at a “high lev­el.” Inves­ti­ga­tions of even major crimes are “still inef­fec­tive,” not just due to lim­it­ed expe­ri­ence, but main­ly because of polit­i­cal inter­fer­ence. . . .
