COMMENT: In the past, we’ve high­light­ed the breakup of the for­mer Yugoslavia and the Ger­man role in dis­solv­ing that coun­try, there­by pre­cip­i­tat­ing the first major Euro­pean war since WWII. (The UNPO was also deeply involved with the Koso­vo gam­bit.)

Among the aspects of the Balka­ns wars that have escaped much pub­lic scruti­ny con­cerns the cen­tral role in that con­flict of fight­ing for­ma­tions descend­ed from Mus­lim Waf­fen SS divi­sions formed dur­ing World War II.

Sol­diers of the 21st Waf­fen SS (“Skan­der­beg”) Divi­sion

In Koso­vo, the KLA was com­prised large­ly of the descen­dants of mem­bers of the 21st Waf­fen SS (“Skan­der­beg”) Divi­sion and oth­er fas­cist fight­ing for­ma­tions. Ger­many was cen­tral­ly involved in the prepa­ra­tion of the Koso­vo cam­paign as well. 

Koso­vo is, for all intents and pur­pos­es, a Ger­man colony. At the same time, it has become both an orga­nized crime hor­ror show.

A New York Times sto­ry notes the role being played by Amer­i­can lumi­nar­ies in the Koso­var econ­o­my. Hav­ing played a cen­tral role in jack­ham­mer­ing Koso­vo from what was left of Ser­bia, they now appear to be reap­ing the rewards.

Of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to us is for­mer gen­er­al Wes­ley Clark, for­mer NATO mil­i­tary com­man­der at the time of the Koso­vo bomb­ing cam­paign.

Clark is now the chair­man of Envid­i­ty, an ener­gy firm using the I.G. Far­ben-devel­oped Fischer/Tropsch process to devel­op syn­thet­ic fuel from Kosovo’s coal deposits. Inevitably licensed to some of the suc­ces­sor firms of I.G. Far­ben, that process is being used in Qatar to syn­the­size fuel. (Qatar, too, is an area of pri­ma­ry Ger­man influ­ence.)

A  num­ber of things come to mind in this con­text, includ­ing:

  • What sort of net­work­ing might Gen­er­al Clark have engaged in pri­or to, dur­ing, and after the cam­paign, result­ing in his stand­ing astride a Fischer/Tropsch indus­tri­al appli­ca­tion?
  • Might Clark have net­worked with Ger­man gen­er­al Klaus Rein­hardt, the son of Fritz Rein­hardt, a Ger­man finance min­istry offi­cial  and war crim­i­nal (involved with the liq­ui­da­tion of Pol­ish Jew­ry and the con­fis­ca­tion of their prop­er­ty.)
  • Fritz Rein­hardt

    Fritz Rein­hardt’s activ­i­ties inevitably placed his endeav­or in the con­stel­la­tion of the Bor­mann flight cap­i­tal oper­a­tion and result­ing net­works.

  • Poland–Fritz Rein­hardt’s old stomp­ing grounds–was home to vast coal reserves, hence its selec­tion by Ger­many as a focal point for the devel­op­ment of I.G. Far­ben syn­thet­ic fuel projects. One of those uti­lized slave labor­ers from the Auschwitz con­cen­tra­tion camp.
  • Clark’s firm is also using Fischer/Tropsch to syn­the­size fuel for Mon­go­lia, pre­vi­ous­ly depen­dent on Russ­ian imports. This will, inevitably, weak­en Russ­ian ener­gy exports, as well as plac­ing Envid­i­ty right in the mid­dle of the “Earth Island boo­gie.”
  • In the con­text of Earth Island geo-pol­i­tics, remem­ber that the UNPO cham­pi­ons the peo­ples of Inner Mon­go­lia (part of Chi­na) and the activ­i­ties of the SS-con­nect­ed Dalai Lama.
  • Mongolia–home to Envid­i­ty’s syn­thet­ic-fuel oper­a­tion, has spawned a vir­u­lent­ly anti-Chi­nese neo-Nazi move­ment!
  • UNPO (which great­ly aid­ed in the estab­lish­ing of “inde­pen­dent” Koso­vo) also cham­pi­ons the inde­pen­dence of the Uighurs,  whose pri­ma­ry place of res­i­dence is Xin­jiang province of China–home to large nat­ur­al resource deposits, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly petro­le­um.)
  • Of course, one must ask, under the cir­cum­stances, if Envid­i­ty is part of the Under­ground Reich/Bormann cap­i­tal net­work?
  • Has Wes­ley Clark been net­work­ing with the heirs to Fritz Rein­hardt?

“That Crush at Kosovo’s Busi­ness Door? The Return of U.S. Heroes” by Matthew Brun­wass­er; The New York Times; 12/11/2013.

EXCERPT: . . . . They also include Wes­ley K. Clark, a retired Army gen­er­al and the for­mer supreme allied com­man­der of NATO forces in Europe who ran the bomb­ing cam­paign against the Ser­bian strong­man Slo­bo­dan Milo­se­vic; and Mark Tavlar­ides, who was leg­isla­tive direc­tor at the Clin­ton White House’s Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil. . . .

. . . . Asked for com­ment, for­mer offi­cials involved said their busi­ness deal­ings with the Koso­vo gov­ern­ment would ben­e­fit Koso­vars by build­ing a more pros­per­ous econ­o­my. “We’re going to employ peo­ple, pro­vide train­ing, cre­ate exports and help the coun­try grow and devel­op as a democ­ra­cy,” said Gen­er­al Clark, who is chair­man of Envid­i­ty, a Cana­di­an ener­gy com­pa­ny seek­ing to explore Kosovo’s lig­nite coal deposits and pro­duce syn­thet­ic fuel. . . .

“The Ener­gy Dilem­ma” by Wes­ley Clark; envidityinc.com.

EXCERPT: . . . .The world needs to needs to devel­op alter­na­tive new resources where there is sig­nif­i­cant reserve poten­tial but in a clean man­ner. For exam­ple, exist­ing minable coal reserves in the USA can pro­vide 275 years of pro­duc­tion at cur­rent con­sump­tion rates. Sasol in South Africa cur­rent­ly pro­duces 160,000 bpd of syn­thet­ic fuel from “coal” and all of the planes that depart­ed South Africa at the end of the World Cup flew on syn­thet­ic jet fuel.

UCG focus­es on “strand­ed” coal (too deep to mine) and cou­pling UCG with Fis­ch­er Trop­sch gas to liq­uids (GTL) tech­nol­o­gy has the abil­i­ty to increase coal reserves by 17 fold. Since CO2 is sequestered in the process, UCG/GTL gen­er­ates a “clean, sta­ble and secure source” of trans­porta­tion fuels. Syn­thet­ic fuel is clear; it has few­er emis­sions, a high­er cetane val­ue, is biodegrad­able and is com­pat­i­ble with exist­ing fuel infra­struc­ture and engines.

UCG refers to the process in which coal reacts in situ with an oxi­dant to pro­duce a com­bustible gas, called syn­the­sis gas or syn­gas. In con­trast to sur­face coal gasi­fi­ca­tion (SCG), no coal min­ing needs to take place and hence UCG has the poten­tial to access unmine­able coal. UCG/GTL tech­nol­o­gy is in its 4th gen­er­a­tion of devel­op­ment. . . .

“Envid­i­ty Launch­es $1B UCG-GTL Project in Mon­go­lia”; greencarcongress.com; 8/20/2011.

EXCERPT: Retired US Army Gen­er­al Wes­ley Clark, Chair­man of Envid­i­ty Inc., announced the com­mit­ment of funds to launch a US$1‑billion under­ground coal gasi­fi­ca­tion gas-to-liq­uids (UCG-GTL) project in Mon­go­lia. The project will trans­form low-qual­i­ty deeply-embed­ded, under­ground coal into syn­thet­ic diesel.

In August of 2010, Envid­i­ty entered into an exclu­sive agree­ment with oper­a­tor Live Ener­gy Group LLC and Shine Shiv­ee LLC to trans­form eco­nom­i­cal­ly strand­ed coal more than 150m deep in the Shine Shiv­ee license areas into domes­tic fuel for Mon­go­lia. On 22 July, Envid­i­ty exer­cised that option.

Envid­i­ty says that the project has the poten­tial to pro­duce 1,000 bar­rels per day of syn­thet­ic diesel sat­is­fy­ing 10% of local demand with­in 24 months, and 15,000 bar­rels per day with­in 60 months. Envid­i­ty says that its project has been rec­og­nized and encour­aged by Senior Mon­go­lian Gov­ern­ment offi­cials as a viable way to tack­le the issue of Mon­go­lian fuel self-suf­fi­cien­cy. . . .

“Geno­cide and the Ter­ri­ble Nazi Secret of the Ger­man Who Leads British Troops” by Christo­pher Evans; The Dai­ly Mail; 10/2/99.

EXCERPT: Com­mit­ted whole­heart­ed­ly to Hitler’s fanat­i­cal ideals, Fritz Rein­hardt rose rapid­ly through the ranks of the Nazi par­ty. He gov­erned the purse strings in the Min­istry of Finance and was pro­mot­ed to Ober­grup­pen­fuhrer, or gen­er­al, in the Brown Shirts.

And in 1941 he had a son — who this week took over com­mand of 8,000 British troops. Gen­er­al Klaus Rein­hardt is direct­ing Nato peace­keep­ing oper­a­tions in war-torn Koso­vo after being hand­ed the reins by Britain’s Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Sir Mike Jack­son. Klaus Rein­hardt is keen to dis­tance him­self from his coun­try’s past and says of his father mere­ly that ‘he was an under-sec­re­tary in the finance min­istry between 1933 and 1945’.

In fact, a Dai­ly Mail inves­ti­ga­tion has dis­cov­ered Fritz Rein­hardt was a Nazi war crim­i­nal who was involved in an oper­a­tion to exter­mi­nate more than 1.75 mil­lion Jews. He was jailed for four years after the war and clas­si­fied a ‘major offend­er’.

He is said by emi­nent his­to­ri­ans of the Nazi peri­od to have lent his name to the infa­mous Aktion Rein­hardt — the code­name for the oper­a­tion under which the SS mas­sa­cred Jews in Poland and stole from them prop­er­ty worth 180 mil­lion marks, more than [pounds ster­ling] 360 mil­lion at today’s val­ues.

The pro­ceeds were passed via Rein­hardt’s finance min­istry to the SS and deposit­ed in a spe­cial bank account known as ‘R’ — believed to stand for Rein­hardt. . . .
