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?

The truth about Kosovo and Metochia.This documentary film was made by the Czech Republic TV and banned in all mainstream globalist media in western countries.It will reveal to you the horrifying story of Kosovo that nobody ever wanted to tell you and debunking all hoaxes, lies, and propaganda NATO used for trigger events...In 1999 NATO bombed Serbia for 78 days and destroyed everything on its way bridges, hospitals, schools, telecommunication buildings, military bases...killing more than 2.500 and wound more than 5.000 civilians.One of the reasons why NATO bombed Serbia is to build the biggest military base in Albania, so they ...
In 1991, a delegation of the German Bundestag visited Kosovo for the first time in order to talk with Kosovo Albanian nationalist leaders. This prompted – as early as 1991! – the warning by a senior member of the Yugoslavian parliament that “the British and the Germans would create a common intervention force with 70,000 soldiers in order to intervene in Kosovo.”  Indeed an early and accurate prophecy! So what about Germany’s role in preparing for the Kosovo war?There were and there are strategic differences between German and the US policies about how to retain or enhance hegemony. “As ...

I was 23-years-old the first time I was arrested. It was at the Pentagon— an act of civil disobedience in protest of the U.S. war on Vietnam. My boyfriend, Jerry Rubin, and I were organizers for the National Mobilization Committee Against the War (familiarly called The Mobe).Here we call it the Vietnam War. The Vietnamese more accurately call it the American War. After all, the U.S. was the aggressor. It was our troops that landed on their soil; our planes that bombed their cities and sprayed Agent Orange; our army massacred their civilians, women and children included. Not the other ...
“We could become the first country to go fascist through free elections.” — William Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third ReichGenerally, we avoid using the word “fascism” in polite company, and until recently, a person pointing out parallels between Nazi Germany and the current United States would invite elevated eyelids along with the outworn charge of sounding like a “conspiracy theorist“. The current electoral cycle seems to be changing that, so I will trust that now is the right time to convey some ideas I’ve been marinating regarding fascism in my US Homeland. The ruling plutocrats are clearly ferrying the ...
I graduated from the exact same PHD Program at Harvard that produced Kissinger and Brzezinski before me. They gave me Kissinger’s old office at Harvard’s Center for International Affairs. I also went through the exact same Soviet/Russian Studies Program at Harvard that produced Brzezinski before me, and passed my PHD Oral/General Examinations in Soviet Politics and Russian History under Adam Ulam and Ned Keenan, respectively. R.I.P. Obama was behind me at Harvard Law School.
Brzezinski has been Obama’s mentor and foreign policy guru since Obama’s student days at Columbia. Zbig ran Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign on foreign affairs and defense, and ...
War has indeed become perpetual and peace no longer even a fleeting wish nor a distant memory. We have become habituated to the rumblings of war and the steady drum beat of propaganda about war’s necessity and the noble motives that inspire it. We will close hospitals. We will close schools. We will close libraries and museums. We will sell off our parklands and water supply. People will sleep on the streets and go hungry. The war machine will go on.
What are we to do? The following text is Part III of a broader analysis entitled War and the State: Business ...
Kacanik, KOSOVO – A plume of smoke hangs over our table in the corner of a dark, shabby café in this rugged town in southern Kosovo. The lanky 19-year-old sitting next to me is chain-smoking through half a pack of L&Ms, his hands trembling as he recalls how he joined one of the world's most brutal militant Islamist groups.Through his neatly trimmed beard, Adem, who asks me not to use his real name for fear of arrest, says he had never even left Kosovo. But two years ago, he found himself on the perilous and far-off Turkey-Syria border -- a ...
Author’s note: The following article focussing on the jihadist terrorist insurgency in Macedonia was first published by antiwar.com in July 2001, barely two months before the September 11, 2001 attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon.Known and documented, since the Soviet-Afghan war, recruiting Mujahedin (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on Washington’s behest had become an integral part of US foreign policy. A report of the US Congress had revealed how the US administration – under advice from the National Security Council headed by Anthony Lake – had “helped turn Bosnia into a militant Islamic base” leading to the recruitment ...
The dramatic developments surrounding the independence referendum in Catalonia, as well as the plebiscite for the self-determination of Iraqi Kurds, have once again raised the issue of the lack of clear criteria in international practice for allowing the self-determination of nations and territories. This creates a breeding ground for double standards and speculative political maneuvers. And although Catalan separatism has a long and unique history, an assessment of current events shows that there are links to other regional crises including in the Balkans, where the double standards and geopolitical games have become fully apparent.Richard Haass, president of the influential US Council on Foreign Relations, recently took ...
The corporate media presents Russia as militaristic but ignores Canada’s invasion of that country.100 years ago today a popular revolt ousted the Russian monarchy. Enraged at Nicholas II’s brutality and the horror of World War I, protests and strikes swept the capital of Petrograd (Saint Petersburg). Within a week the czar abdicated. Later in the year the Bolsheviks rose to power in large part by committing to withdraw from the war.The English, French and US responded to the Bolshevik’s rise by supporting the Russian monarchists (the whites) in their fight to maintain power. Six thousand Canadian troops also invaded. According ...
So the moment we’ve been holding our breaths for a week finally came. In the end, I am mighty glad that this particular strike seems more like the impotent thrashing of the neocon snake that didn’t dare to attack places where Russian servicemen were likely to be killed, than it does the start of World War III. For the moment, at least, thank God.But the fact that it was a fairly limited strike — compared to what it might have been — in which the majority of missiles failed to hit their targets, having been eliminated by Soviet-era air defences, ...
Belarus is a land known also as Belorussia (White Russia, Weißrussland) in East Europe which was for centuries occupied by a Polish-Lithuanian common state until it became included in Tsarist Russia in the late 18th century. Belarus is facing many identity problems but the most important is the ethnolinguistic challenge to a separate Belarussian national feature.National identityA common national identity is a focal element for the creation of a national state as without a common identity that is based on a fundamental element of group’s identity a psychological sense of common solidarity cannot be developed. However, such solidarity is a ...
America is unique among history’s warrior states – prioritizing endless wars, not ending them to achieve a new era of peace and stability.The notion is anathema to the nation’s military, industrial, and media establishment. Wars are waged for power and profits, no other reasons.All post-WW II US wars were and continue to be acts of naked aggression against nations threatening no one – raping and destroying them, the human cost incalculable, the villainy unprecedented.Throughout its history, America has been perpetually at war at home and/or abroad, never a time of peace and stability – a shocking indictment of its abhorrent ...
The brutal destruction of ex-Yugoslav Federal state-system was in a form of the civil wars or, in another word, a chain of violent conflicts from 1991 to 1995. From the spring of 1992, the SFRY already did not exist as a state and, therefore, the conflicts were turned into the Wars of the Yugoslav Succession.The Yugoslav civil wars can be comprised of the three closely related armed conflicts:1) War in Slovenia in 1991.2) War in Croatia from 1991 to 1995.3) War in Bosnia-Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995.[i]In the year of 1990, the real potential for the armed conflict became quite ...
When the Warsaw Pact ended, after the collapse of communism, some optimists might have expected Nato to be broken up too.After all, the Labour Party in Britain had been opposed to Nato in the mid-1980s. But that was not to be. The US, which had always dominated Nato, quickly began to reinvent Nato and furthermore to expand it.Following the end of the Warsaw Pact many central and east European governments wanted to join Nato.This of course was music to the ears of the US military manufacturers. Indeed, the chair of the expand Nato committee, Bruce Jackson, was technical director of ...

There have been at least two countries in Europe in recent history that undertook ‘anti-terrorist’ military operations against ‘separatists’, but got two very different reactions from the Western elite.
The government of European country A launches what it calls an‘anti-terrorist’ military operation against ‘separatists’ in one part of the country. We see pictures on Western television of people’s homes being shelled and lots of people fleeing. The US and UK and other NATO powers fiercely condemn the actions of the government of country A and accuse it of carrying out ‘genocide’ and ’ethnic cleansing’ and say that there is an urgent ...
It is the Unlimited Imperialists along the line of Alexander, Rome, Napoleon and Hitler who are now in charge of conducting American foreign policy…Historically this latest eruption of American militarism at the start of the 21st Century is akin to that of America opening the 20th Century by means of the U.S.-instigated Spanish-American War in 1898. Then the Republican administration of President William McKinley stole their colonial empire from Spain in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines; inflicted a near genocidal war against the Filipino people; while at the same time illegally annexing the Kingdom of Hawaii and subjecting ...
Twelve years ago, March 24th, 1999, marks the commencement of NATO’s aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia. The bombings which lasted for almost three months, were followed by the military invasion (under a bogus UN mandate) and illegal occupation of the province of Kosovo.In the course of the last week, the so-called international community, backed by the UN Security Council has called for the bombing of Libya, a sovereign country, allegedly to protect the lives of civilians under the logo of “Responsibility to Protect”.The covert operations, the military strategies applied in Libya not to mention the process of media disinformation bears a canny ...
