Martti Ahtisaari, the Finnish chairman of the International Crisis Group (ICG), the globalist New World Order “think tank”, set off a storm of controversy by his racist statement that Serbia was “guilty as a nation” and bore “historical responsibility” for the Kosovo crisis. How is preventing the creation of a genocidal and racist Greater Albania associated with “guilt”? Why should Serbia bear responsibility for combating a racist and genocidal separatist and secessionist movement endorsed by Ahtisaari? Ahtisaari’s comments are not only racist and bigoted, but they cover up his own nation’s “historical responsibility” for the Holocaust.
Ahtisaari, whose real name is Adolfsen, was born in Viipuri, now Vyborg, Russia. His family originally came from southern Norway. The family name was officially changed in 1935 to the more Finnish sounding “Ahtisaari”. What he is hiding is Finland’s Nazi past and role in the Holocaust, the extermination of European Jewry. Finland was one of the closest allies of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Finns, regarded as part of the Nazi “master race”, were integral members of the Nazi “Wiking” 5th Waffen SS Division and made up their own Volunteer SS formation, the Finnish Nazi Waffen SS Battalion “Nordost” which was attached to the Waffen SS Regiment “Nordland”. Ahtisaari’s father was a “military mechanic” in the Nazi Finnish troops that attacked the USSR in 1941. The number of Finnish volunteers sent to Germany in 1941 was over 1,200, 400 of whom were placed in the Nazi 5th SS Division “Wiking” and then sent to the Eastern front. Reichsfuehrer SS Heinrich Himmler wrote that “where a Finnish SS man stood, the enemy was always defeated”. Adolf Hitler made a personal visit to Carl Mannerheim, the Nazi commander of Finland’s armed forces, a close ally of Nazi Germany, and later president of Finland. Hitler also met with Finnish President Risto Ryti. Heinrich Himmler went to Finland in 1942 to request of deportation of Finnish Jews.
Ahtisaari covers up any mention of the Finnisches Freiwilligen Battalion der Waffen-SS “Nordost”, or any mention of Finnish Nazi SS troops in the Wiking Nazi SS Division. Gottlob Berger, the head of Waffen SS recruiting, in referring to the Finnish Nazi SS troops, said that “I have never had a better battalion”. Finnish units were part of the 1941 Nazi assault on the Soviet Union known as Operation Barbarossa and annexed Russian territory, East Karelia, to a Nazi Greater Finland. East Karelia was a Slavic or Russian majority area that was annexed to a Nazi Greater Finland. How many Russians, Jews, and Serbs were killed because of Finnish collaboration with Adolf Hitler?
Finland was unique during World War II and the Holocaust in that it freely and voluntarily joined Adolf Hitler’s Nazi New Order in Europe and freely and voluntarily formed Nazi SS formations, which the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal held were criminal and whose members were war criminals. Finland was not under German military occupation. Finns made the free and voluntary choice and decision to join Nazi Germany as the vanguard of the new Nazi Order in Europe. Where is Ahtisaari’s discussion of his nation’s real “historical responsibility” and “collective guilt” for Finland’s role in the Holocaust and the Nazi New Order? Ahtisaari is a shameless and mindless hypocrite. Finns and Albanians have a real Nazi past as collaborators with Adolf Hitler in the murder of millions of Jews and thousands of Kosovo Serbs. What he has in common with his Albanian proxies is a historical responsibility for their nation’s Nazi past and their collective guilt during the Holocaust and their historical responsibility for the genocide committed in Kosovo against Kosovo Serbs during World War II.
Historical responsibility, indeed. Let us start with Finland and the “historical responsibility” of Finland. Then what about the “historical responsibility” of his Albanian proxies in Kosovo, who like the Finns, themselves had their own Nazi Waffen SS formation, the 21st Waffen SS Division “Skanderbeg” which murdered and ethnically cleansed thousands of Kosovo Serbs and Jews during the Holocaust. Ahtisaari seeks to create a smokescreen with his hypocritical racist remarks to obfuscate the fact that detaching Kosovo-Metohija from Serbia is criminal and illegal and against all international laws, customs, and norms. It is up to the Serbian people to decide whether they want to create a Greater Albania and give away their national territory to “terrorists”. Ahtisaari is very generous with Serbian land. And he is very complacent about the genocide of Kosovo Serbs which will follow any “independent” Kosova. The decision belongs to the Serbian people, not to Ahtisaari and a “think tank”. This is an issue of democracy. Let the Serbian people decide if they want Ahtisaari to create an “independent” Greater Albania from their territory. The decision should be by majority vote of the people of Serbia. Why should Ahtisaari decide if an illegal Greater Albania should be created out of Serbian territory?
What about the “historical responsibility” of Finns and Albanians as collaborators with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany? What about their “collective guilt” for the Holocaust? Does the murder during World War II of thousands of Kosovo Serbs by Albanian Nazi SS troops and Albanian Nazi and fascist collaborators entail Albanian “collective guilt” and “historical responsibility”? Are proxies and clients “victims” who never bear “guilt” or”responsibility”?
There is, moreover, a glaring conflict of interest. How can Ahtisaari be a UN negotiator on the final status of Kosovo when he has already made known his decision or diktat on Kosovo? Why does he get to impose a “solution” on Kosovo by force like Adolf Hitler did in 1941? How long will a settlement last that is imposed by force? His role as negotiator is a sham and constitutes fraud and deception. He is an advocate for a Greater or Ethnic Albania as demonstrated by his membership in the ICG. There is obvious bias, prejudice, and a glaring conflict of interest. Who does Ahtisaari think he is deceiving?

Destroyed Serbian Orthodox church in Kosovo by local Muslim Albanians after 1999In 2000, when George W. Bush was elected president in a controversial and hotly disputed election, all the experts and pundits predicted that there would be a philosophical sea change in US foreign policy in the Balkans, and in Kosovo in particular. In my 2000 analysis of the election of Bush and US foreign policy in Kosovo, however, I concluded that the George W. Bush Administration represented the same old same old and business as usual. In my viewpoint, absolutely nothing would change in the US foreign policy stance ...
The media is currently in the midst of an anti-Russian hysteria that many have dubbed Cold War 2.0. Of course the first cold war never really ended as the wars in Yugoslavia, Chechnya, and even Afghanistan were aimed at Russia as was the relentless NATO expansion. This manufactured panic is a form of psychological warfare that went into high gear during the Sochi Olympics in 2014 as the US was working to launch a fascist coup in Ukraine. Since most ordinary people would be shocked to discover that Nazis had been installed in power in Ukraine an anti-Russian hysteria was ...
Recapitulation of the Facts of the Korean WarNovember 7, 1950: “Just when there was a lull in the fighting and it looked as if peace were possible, MacArthur staged a gigantic and murderous raid directly across from the Chinese frontier, destroying most of a city in an area where bombings had been forbidden to prevent border violations.” “There were reports,” The New York Times said October 15, that General MacArthur had ordered the first bombings of North Korean cities without authorization from Washington.” “General Stratemeyer, commander of the Far East Air Forces described the attack: ‘when fighter planes swept the ...
When an intelligence agency arranges to disseminated fake news it is called “disinformation” and it is a subset of what is referred to as covert action, basically secret operations run in a foreign country to influence opinion or to disrupt the functioning of a government or group that is considered to be hostile.During the Cold War, disinformation operations were run by many of the leading players in both the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and in the opposition Warsaw Pact. Sometimes the activity and the sponsorship were clearly visible, as when Radio Free Europe and Radio Moscow would exchange barbs about ...
1. Kosovo is not ancient Albanian land
Its very name comes from the Serbian word "kos," meaning blackbird. Its Albanian name, "Kosova," means nothing whatsoever.
Kosovo was the heartland of medieval Serbian state and the site of the 1389 battle in which both the Serbian prince and the Ottoman sultan died, checking the Turkish expansion into the Balkans for almost 70 years. Ethnic Albanians were settled there by the Ottomans over the intervening centuries, and became a majority due to pogroms and persecution of Serbs - which began under Ottoman rule but continued under Austro-Hungarian occupation in WWI and German/Italian occupation in ...
The recent resolution of the parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE fully equalizes the role of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the Second World War, except that it had the purely pragmatic purpose of extorting money from Russia on the contents of some of the bankrupt economies, intended to demonize Russia as the successor state to the USSR, and to prepare the legal ground for the deprivation of her right to speak out against revision of results of war. But if we approach the problem of responsibility for the war, then you first need to answer the ...
We, the undersigned, are Russians living and working in the USA. We have been watching with increasing anxiety as the current US and NATO policies have set us on an extremely dangerous collision course with the Russian Federation, as well as with China. Many respected, patriotic Americans, such as Paul Craig Roberts, Stephen Cohen, Philip Giraldi, Ray McGovern and many others have been issuing warnings of a looming a Third World War. But their voices have been all but lost among the din of a mass media that is full of deceptive and inaccurate stories that characterize the Russian economy ...
The arrest of a German army officer suspected of plotting the assassination of leftist politicians and high-ranking state officials has exposed the operations of neo-Nazi forces at the highest levels of the German military (Bundeswehr).
The information that has emerged thus far indicates that the suspected officer-terrorist was part of a broader network of fascists within the Bundeswehr, and that his activities were known to his superiors and covered up by them.
Most astonishing is the official reaction to these alarming revelations. They have prompted an outpouring of anger in the German media and from the establishment parties directed not at the ...
With a critical public increasingly turning to social media to scrutinize the claims of the mainstream as well as the credibility of the assertions made by the various NGOs and government-funded human rights organisations, it’s arguably becoming more difficult for the corporate press to pass their propaganda off as legitimate news.
This is particularly the case during periods when the establishment pushes for military conflicts. One salutary lesson from the Iraq debacle, is that the public appear not to be so readily fooled. Or are they?
It’s a measure of the extent to which the mass media barely stray from their paymasters ...
Top personalities of the Croatian Revival MovementPreface This text investigates the question of relations between the Croatian national revival movement and the Serbs from 1830 to 1847. Special investigation attention is put on the problem of how the language influenced ethnonational group identity among the Croats and Serbs in Dalmatia, Croatia and Slavonia (the so-called Triune Kingdom) during the period of the Croatian national revival movement that was officially and not only formally named as the Illyrian Movement. This investigation is an attempt to reconstruct the mainstream of the politics by the leaders of the movement and their outlines on how ...
Iraq and Kosovo may be thousands of miles apart, but they share the dubious distinction of contamination with radioactive residue from depleted uranium (DU) bullets used in American air strikes. After several years of silence, US officials finally admitted that 340 tons of DU were fired during the Gulf war. In Kosovo, American delays in providing details of quantities and target points have frustrated international efforts to assess health risks. Despite repeated requests, NATO waited almost a full year after the start of bombing in March 1999 to say that 31,000 DU bullets–a fraction of the number fired in Iraq–were ...
What constitutes water can be scientifically proven beyond any doubt, now what constitutes a nation-state is a far more organic question than it would seem. Each of us is very used to seeing maps with the same countries and lines on it throughout the years and take their existence as a given. But depending on where a map comes from its borders may actually look very different. One of these countries to some and non-countries to others is Kosovo which gradually continues to lose the support of the states that recognized it into existence. Furthermore, this sheds light on how ...
On September 22, Ukraine’s Azov Battalion had a ceremony honoring its fighters who were killed in combat in eastern Ukraine’s Donbass regions. It is natural for any military unit to honor its dead. But it is evident from the images on Azov’s own website that this ceremony used iconography that is disturbingly reminiscent of the 1930s Nuremberg rallies, including the use of searchlights, the banners with Waffen-SS stylized logos and the flames.
The background of Azov, its leadership, its recruitment and emblems are all deeply disturbing. It grew out of the Social-National Assembly of Ukraine (S.N.A.), a group of far right and neo-Nazi organizations ...
Canada has a reputation for being a relatively progressive state with universal, single-payer health care, various other social benefits, and strict gun laws, similar to many European countries but quite unlike the United States. It has managed to stay out of some American wars, for example, Vietnam and Iraq, portrayed itself as a neutral “peace keeper”, pursuing a so-called policy of “multilateralism” and attempting from time to time to keep a little independent distance from the United States.Behind this veneer of respectability lies a not so attractive reality of elite inattention to the defence of Canadian independence from the United ...
Strange things happen in civil wars: During the Russian Civil War in 1919, 13,000 U.S. troops were dispatched by President Woodrow Wilson to occupy the cities of Archangelsk in the Arctic and Vladivostok on the Pacific.Half a century earlier, thousands of Imperial Russian Navy sailors and their officers flooded the cities of San Francisco and New York. But the circumstances were very different. They were there to defend the United States from foreign invasion – not to threaten it and they brilliantly succeeded in their tasks.The incredible story is well told in “Friends in Peace and War: The Russian Navy’s ...
Has your electric garage door stopped working? Does your dog wake up in the middle of the night and begin howling? Is the weather unseasonably hot, cold, windy, dry or wet? Has your television set (or refrigerator, or sound system or home alarm) inexplicably turned on, or off?
If one uncritically viewed the corporate-controlled media and accepted at face value the statements of much of official Washington, especially the Democratic Party, one could easily draw the conclusion that the Russians did it.
A paranoid frenzy is gripping the US political and media establishment. A ruling elite that commands the world’s largest economy ...
The reaction to the Syrian gassing incident shows that the U.S. ship-of-state is being piloted by fools.
Fool-in-Chief is President Donald Trump, who has duly followed the Neocon script by leaping to the conclusion that President al-Assad’s Syrian government is responsible when in fact there is no evidence of an intentional attack. Even if Syrian planes hit a munitions warehouse, the gas had been stored there by anti-government rebels /terrorists. It would be impossible and contrary to common sense that the Syrian government could have done this on purpose, if they did it at all.
Fool-at-the-Podium is Sean Spicer, helplessly trying to ...
Each of the full-blown wars between Israel and its Arab neighbours have carried a great measure of significance. The War of 1948 led to the creation of the modern state of Israel, a cause for euphoria among the world’s Jews in the post-Shoah-era, in contrast to the Nakba inflicted on the Arabs of Palestine.The War of 1967, during which Israel routed three Arab armies in six days established Israel as a regional hegemon while its defeated Arab neighbours stewed in their humiliation and the Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza came under occupation.The Arab-Israeli War of 1973, known ...
How Dumb is the CIA? With the hydrogen bomb test by North Korea, it should be recalled the CIA was dumb enough to be responsible for North Korea acquiring nukes.Reorganized Murder IncorporatedAccording to a Washington Post article, John Brennan has set out to restructure the CIA's longstanding model:"At issue is a basic structure that has been in place since the agency’s inception, with employees divided by function among four major directorates. The best known are the National Clandestine Service, which sends case officers overseas on spying missions and carries out covert operations, and the Directorate of Intelligence, which employs thousands ...

Recent developments confirm what is known and documented: Washington is behind the Islamic State (ISIS) and at the same time it is behind the moderate Al Qaeda terrorists, which the Obama administration is supporting as part of America’s campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS). And they expect us to believe that they are committed to waging a campaign against terrorists.
The Islamic State (ISIS) was until 2014 called al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).
Al Nusra is an al Qaeda affiliate which has committed countless atrocities in Syria. It is now considered by the Obama administration as ...
