Disappeared People in Kosovostan

During and after the the Kosovo conflict in 1998-1999, the KLA abducted and kidnapped over 2,000 Kosovo civilians, Serbs, Roma, and Albanians that opposed the KLA, who were tortured and murdered. Ten years after the conflict, these 2,000 remain missing. Approximately 1,000 to 1,3000 Kosovo Serbs are missing and presumed dead. How did they die? UNMIK occupation forces have been reluctant to investigate these mass murders of Kosovo civilians. What happened to them? Evidence has emerged that the KLA ran a series of prison camps, in Kosovo and in Albania itself, where they tortured and murdered Kosovo Serbs, Roma, and Albanians. Moreover, Carla Del Ponte disclosed that the KLA had detention centers where they murdered Kosovo Serbs and harvested their organs. What happened to the 2,000 kidnapped and murdered, the missing, Kosovo’s disappeared?

The Kosovo conflict was always, first and foremost, about secession, taking land from another country criminally and making it your own, a land grab, a shifting of borders. Secession is illegal under the UN Charter and under international law. This is why it was never openly disclosed before or during the conflict. It was only revealed after the war. So the public had to be deceived and hoodwinked. The people had to be lied to. And this was done in so-called democracies of the West, the so-called free world. Because secession is inherently illegal, a crime, a smokescreen had to be devised. The people had to be told lies through the mass media network. Instead of secession, which was never mentioned, the masses in the U.S. and elsewhere were lied to, told that Albanians wanted greater rights. In fact, Albanians sought a Greater Albania, an illegal land grab based on ethnicity. The gullible were told that the Kosovo conflict was about human rights and “oppression”. But it was known that Kosovo Albanians enjoyed more rights and freedoms than any other minority in the world. They had their own university, their own Albanian language, their own Albanian-language newspapers, their own court system, their own educational system, and they controlled the police. Why was there a conflict in Kosovo then? The issue was that the Albanian population, largely Muslim, wanted to secede from Serbia and Yugoslavia. This is illegal under international law and the UN Charter. This necessitated the manufacturing of a propaganda war which pictured the Albanian Muslims as victims and the Yugoslav and Serbian governments and police as “oppressors”. Such a black and white scenario meant that crimes by the Albanian secessionists were downplayed, minimized, and even dismissed and ignored.

The KLA secessionists, first described by the U.S. government as terrorists, later became proxies and allies of the U.S. and of NATO. They went from terrorists to “freedom fighters” and a “liberation army”. Once they became a proxy army and shock troops for the U.S. and NATO, they could do no wrong and had a free hand. All was permitted during “a period of terror”.

The KLA secessionists took the green light to abduct, kidnap, torture, and murder Kosovo Serb civilians, but also Kosovo Roma, Gorani, and Albanians that opposed the KLA secessionist agenda. U.S., NATO, and UNMIK forces gave them the green light and go-ahead to terrorize and to murder Kosovo Serbs and other non-Albanians in Kosovo. Why did the KLA secesionists murder Kosovo Serb, Roma, and Albanian civilians? This seems rather paradoxical if the goal of the uprising was human rights and greater freedoms. But this was never the goal or objective. The goal was always to create an independent Albanian state out of Kosovo. Secession was always the goal, although Albanians already had a national state of Albania. Kosovo would be a second Albanian state. Murdering and ethnically cleansing non-Albanians was always the goal because the KLA secessionists and their U.S. and Western backers wanted them to create an Albanian state, not a multi-ethnic state. So all non-Albanian Muslims had to disappear. And they did. The U.S., NATO, and UNMIK occupation forces made sure it happened.

American reporter Michael Montgomery investigated the disappearance of the over 2,000 missing in Kosovo. He noted that many Kosovo Serbs “simply vanished without a trace. There were no demands for ransom, no news of any kind.” He spoke of the camps where Kosovo Serbs were tortured and murdered: “I had met sources who spoke vaguely about secret camps in Albania where Kosovo Serbs, Albanians and Roma were interrogated, tortured and in most cases killed.” A former KLA secessionist disclosed information about the prison camps. Montgomery admitted that the goal of the KLA secessionists was independence and secession, not the U.S. propaganda line of greater human rights and oppression from the Slobodan Milosevic regime: “He had returned from a successful career abroad to join the KLA in its fight for Kosovo’s independence from Serbia.” Once the U.S. and NATO had occupied the Kosovo province, why lie anymore? Indeed, there was no further need for lies and deceptions. Secession was always the goal. Of course, that we as citizens of democracies had been brainwashed and treated like cattle did not even enter into the equation. Why did our media and government lie to us? The ends justified the means undoubtedly for American journalists like Michael Montgomery. The truth can now be revealed ten years after the conflict. But on the positive side, we have engineered an illegal secession and created a second Albanian Muslim state in Europe, an illegal entity only maintained by U.S. and NATO occupation troops, by military force alone. This criminal entity, propped up by force, by a foreign power, the U.S., will remain a focal point of instability and future conflict. It will remain a time bomb and powder keg.

In the April 10, 2009 BBC story “Horrors of KLA Prison Camps Revealed” on the prison camps by Nick Thorpe he stated that Kosovo is a part of Serbia which Serbs “regard as their own”. Hold on a second. We need a reality check. Is the legal status of Kosovo up in the air? Kosovo is a part of Serbia under the UN and under international laws. This is a subtle brainwashing and propaganda trick. The BBC journalist seeks to brainwash the listener or viewer into thinking that Serbs “regard” Kosovo a part of Serbia when, in fact, Kosovo is a part of Serbia under international law and the UN. Why this subtle brainwashing? Are we pigs or human beings? Why is he lying to us? This is, in reality, the nature of journalism and news reporting in the U.S. and Western countries, a delusional system of subtle mind control, or, to put it another way, a system of persuasion and suggestion.

His KLA informant “had become haunted by the treatment of civilians he had seen at a KLA prison camp.” He needed to disclose the truth. He admitted that KLA commanders had ordered the abuses and murders and had tolerated them. These alleged abductions and murders of Kosovo Serb civilians were war crimes. He explained that many of the Kosovo Serbs disappeared: “He said the civilians were Serbs and Roma seized by KLA soldiers and were being hidden away from Nato troops. The source believes the captives were sent across the border to Albania and killed.” A total of eight former KLA secessionists gave information on the prison camps. Another KLA witness stated: “Yet another source spoke of driving trucks packed with shackled prisoners – mainly Serbian civilians from Kosovo – to secret locations in Albania where they were eventually killed.”

In the BBC report, Brankica Antic, a Kosovo Serb, described how her husband Zlatko was kidnapped by the KLA in 1999 after NATO occupied the Serbian province and has been missing since then. His body has never been recovered. He is presumed to have been murdered by the KLA under the auspices of U.S. and NATO occupation troops.

In the Albanian towns of Kukes and Tropoje, Carla Del Ponte revealed that over 300 Kosovo Serb civilians were transported using trucks by KLA forces where their organs were harvested. Kidneys were removed from Kosovo Serbs and taken to the airport to be transpoted to Turkey. This was all done after NATO and U.S. troops occupied Kosovo. There was a house, the infamous “yellow house”, in the Albanian town of Burrel where organs were harvested from kidnapped Kosovo Serb civilians. Human Rights Watch (HRW) has stated that these allegations needed to be investigated and regarded the allegattions as “serious and credible”. Del Ponte revealed that Kosovo Serb civilians “were stripped of their organs in Kosovo war” by the KLA and that the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague has evidence of these crimes.

The UN war crimes tribunal has, however, never investigated these alleged war crimes. Jose Pablo Baraybar of the UN Office of Missing Persons in Kosovo stated that evidence of these crimes that the UN tribunal possessed was destroyed. Montgomery had investigated evidence of these war crimes in February, 2004. UN war crimes prosecutors, however, took no action and filed no charges. Nick Thorpe of the BBC explained that this was done because “stability seemed more important than justice.”

Sian Jones, a researcher for Amnesty International (AI) told the BBC that the UN had abandoned its legal obligations and duties:

“To see a UN body failing to abide by the international standards to which it holds its member states accountable is really quite shocking. And, more than that, the impact on the families who want to know the fate of their family members, they want to know where their bodies are, they want to know what happened to them.”

“What we have is a massive failure to protect members of the minority communities from human rights abuses whilst that very international community was supposed to be there to protect them.”

One secret KLA prison camp was in Kukes in northeastern Albania, which was an important and key supply base for the KLA secessionists who used the base to smuggle weapons and fighters into Kosovo.

The Kosovo Serb civilians were tortured before they were murdered: “He recalled hearing two of the captives begging to be shot rather than tortured and ‘cut into pieces’.” He noted that the KLA goal was to target Kosovo Serb civilians: “‘I was sick. I was just waiting for it to end,’ the source told me. ‘It was hard. I thought we were fighting a war [of liberation] but this was something completely different.’” Montgomery stated that “it was about killings, it was about greed”.

Montgomery noted that these KLA war crimes that approached genocide were suppressed and covered-up in the U.S. and Western media: “A long silence over the atrocities has held strong throughout Kosovo.” Kosovo Serbs continue to be persecuted based on their ethnicity and religion in Kosovo along with other non-Albanians but the egregious human rights violations have not received any attention in the U.S. or other Western countries.

Why was there no interest in investigating and punishing these war crimes in Kosovo? Why was Michael Montgomery and the BBC revealing them ten years after the conflict? The reason was because these facts were now irrelevant and meaningless. Thus, they could safely be disclosed. As Montgomery himself noted, once secession, once independence had been achieved for the Serbian province and it was now an Albanian Muslim state, a new, second Albanian nation, “Europe’s most controversion state”, achieved through criminality and aggression, revealing the information could do no harm or be of any value to anyone.

America’s Myth of a Peaceful Nation
"We are a peaceful nation," claimed Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson in an interview with Katie Couric late last year. Carson voiced a view that is held by many in our society. Like most people around the world, we naturally like to think of ourselves as a peace loving country. Unfortunately, the record does not bear this out. It, in fact, indicates something quite opposite: The United States has had a long and bloody history of aggression and war making. A survey of history shows that America has either been involved in armed conflict or conducted some form of military operations during 223 ...

“The Civilized World” Strikes Again: Donald Trump, a Complete Puppet of the Military Industrial Complex
It is apparent given the timelines and the lack of time given to verifying the validity of accusations concerning the gas attack in Homs, Syria, that plans had already been coordinated for such an attack.

Who Are the Serbs?
Serbs: Basic facts Ethnic location: Central and western part of the Balkan Peninsula (South-East Europe) Population: 10.2 million (1.8 million Serbs live outside their ethnic location) Language: Serbian Religion: Eastern Orthodox Christians 1 Introduction Serbs belong to the Southslavonic group of Indo-European peoples. As their tradition, culture, language, beliefs, and customs show, the ethnogenesis of Serbs goes far back into the past. Serbian ancestors, Protoslavs and Old Serbs, were described in the 5th century BC by Herodotus, under the names of Neuri and Budini, living north of the Danube in the region between Dniepar and north-eastern Carpathian Mountains. The first mention of the name “Serbs” appears ...

FYROM Should be Named Paionia as it was 2,500 Years Ago
The name of the modern land-locked country north of Greece, with its capital at Skopje, has returned to the news. It is officially called FYROM, but embedded in that name is “Macedonia” which is a reflection of the longstanding attempt to take over the modern Greek province of Macedonia as reflected in maps used in many places, including schools. It is clear that this naming implies territorial ambitions which have long been understood (http://macedonia-evidence.org/documentation.html). If that threat to the stability of the southern Balkans is to be stopped permanently, I suggest that the following must happen: 1) the country should be named ...

The History of Religious Intolerance
In the world before Christianity and Islam took hold far more religions and philosophies existed than do now. Around the middle of the first millennium BCE Daoism, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism began to become established and quickly spread in Asia, no doubt impacting on already long established religions of the time but without such wide-reaching repercussions. These new religions appeared in a world where a vast amount of religions already existed. The Mesopotamian religion, is the oldest known and recorded organised religion, consisting of worship of some two thousand deities.

A Constant Reminder to a Constant War: Militarism in American Society
The wars in the Middle East continue to rage unabated. Over the weekend a Russian war plane was struck down by an Al Qaeda affiliated group, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, and once again stoked fears of widening the struggle in Syria between US and Russian proxy forces. It is yet another reminder of the ongoing and seemingly endless wars being waged in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere around the globe. Our transition into this never-ending war paradigm, fashioned out of the events of the post 9/11 era, seeks only to benefit and further cement the pre-existing alliance between the US military ...

New Strategic Calculus for the Balkans
The Balkans have returned to the forefront of European geopolitics as a result of the New Cold War, with the US and Russia facing off in a proxy war over the planned Balkan Stream pipeline through the region. The geopolitical circumstances have evolved since the 1990s, when all of the former Yugoslavia was lumped together as the Western Balkans. In order to accommodate for the changing strategic reality in the region, it’s necessary to carve the Central Balkans out of the idea of the former, and the new division of the Balkans into Western, Central, and Eastern regions simplifies the ...

The U.S. is not a Democracy, It Never was
One of the most steadfast beliefs regarding the United States is that it is a democracy. Whenever this conviction waivers slightly, it is almost always to point out detrimental exceptions to core American values or foundational principles. For instance, aspiring critics frequently bemoan a “loss of democracy” due to the election of clownish autocrats, draconian measures on the part of the state, the revelation of extraordinary malfeasance or corruption, deadly foreign interventions, or other such activities that are considered undemocratic exceptions. The same is true for those whose critical framework consists in always juxtaposing the actions of the U.S. government ...

Sweden was a Military Giant – Until it Invaded Russia
When most people think of Sweden, they think of IKEA furniture, depressing murder mysteries and a foreign policy of strict neutrality. Yet 400 years ago, Sweden was a major military power.

Under young King Gustavus Adolphus, a brilliant and innovative military commander, Sweden in the early 1600s became a sort of Nordic Israel (which must also make Swedish leftists cringe). Sweden was a poor, thinly populated nation that couldn't match the resources of larger rivals such as France and Russia. So, Gustavus Adolphus had to devise a more flexible, mobile ...
