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?

As defections continue from the Rome Statute the Netherlands-based group says Washington may have engaged in torture
A recent article published in the New York Times appears to suggest that the United States will be investigated by the Netherlands-based International Criminal Court (ICC) for committing torture against captives in Afghanistan.
Surprisingly enough the ICC has almost exclusively focused its attention on alleged war crimes and acts of genocide taking place in Africa. Many of the cases have in effect served the interests of U.S. imperialism where governments which are targets for destabilization and regime-change are indicted by the prosecutorial institution in order ...
The Kosovo Question recently once again became an important issue of global politics and international relations for two reasons: 1) The Albanian “government” of the “Republic of Kosovo” announced to officially proclaim the existence of the Kosovo Army (that is a violation of the 1244 UN Resolution in 1999), and 2) The “president” of the “Republic of Kosovo”, a war criminal Hashim Tachi, participated on November 11th (2018) in Paris to the world leaders’ celebration of a centenary anniversary of the end of the WWI (the signed armistice with Germany) as the official representative of an “independent” Kosovo. He was ...
Never has US intentions in Asia been so obvious. Attempts to portray America’s role in the region as constructive or necessary have been ongoing since the end of World War II, however, recently, with Asia able to begin determining its own destiny for itself, the tone from Washington has become increasingly curt and direct.
US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s remarks during the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore were all but a proclamation of US hegemony over Asia – a region of the planet quite literally an ocean away from Washington.
In Reuters’ article, “U.S. flexes muscles as Asia worries about South China ...
Is Vladimir Putin the most popular Russian leader of all time?
It certainly looks like it. In a recent survey conducted by the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center, Putin’s public approval rating soared to an eye-popping 86 percent, which is twice that of Obama’s when he left office in 2016. And what’s more surprising is that Putin’s popularity has held up through a severe economic slump and nearly two decades in office. Unlike most politicians, whose shelf-life is somewhere between 4 to 8 years, the public’s admiration for Putin has only grown stronger over time.
And the phenom is not limited to Russia either. According to a recent survey by the pollster YouGov, “Putin is the third most admired man in Egypt, the fourth in China, ...
The Great Powers installed a German army officer, a German Prince William, Wilhelm of Wied, Germany, as the first recognized ruler of an “independent” Albania, a puppet or proxy regime or government set up by the Great Powers.
In many ways, the conflict between the Great Powers and Serbia over Albania in 1912-1913 prefigured and foreshadowed and was the precursor of the open conflict over Kosovo beginning in 1998. Albania achieved independence only because Serbia and the other Balkan League powers were able to defeat Ottoman Turkey militarily. The Great Powers immediately established a protectorate in Albania and planned to use ...
The bleak truth is that a careful review of the activities of the CIA and the organizations from which it sprang reveals an intense preoccupation with the development of techniques of behavior control, brainwashing, and covert medical and psychic experimentation on unwitting subjects including religious sects, ethnic minorities, prisoners, mental patients, soldiers and the terminally ill. The rationale for such activities, the techniques and indeed the human subjects chosen show an extraordinary and chilling similarity to Nazi experiments.
This similarity becomes less surprising when we trace the determined and often successful efforts of US intelligence officers to acquire the records of ...
Media outlets removed by Facebook on Thursday, in a massive purge of 800 accounts and pages, had previously been targeted in a blacklist of oppositional sites promoted by the Washington Post in November 2016.
The organizations censored by Facebook include The Anti-Media, with 2.1 million followers, The Free Thought Project, with 3.1 million followers, and Counter Current News, with 500,000 followers. All three of these groups had been on the blacklist.
In November 2016, the Washington Post published a puff-piece on a shadowy and up to then largely unknown organization called PropOrNot, which had compiled a list of organizations it claimed were ...
War President of Bosnia-Herzegovina Alija Izetbegovic - author of jihadist "Islamic Declaration" in 1970
One of the most outrageous and heinous hoaxes and Hitlerian Big Lies perpetrated by the US and Western media during the Bosnian civil war of 1992-1995 was that Bosnian Serbs had used rape as an “instrument of war”. In order to discredit the Bosnian Serbs, they were accused of committing mass rapes against Bosnian Muslim women, in “rape camps” and “rape motels”. Even the United Nations commander in Bosnia, Canadian Major-General Lewis MacKenzie, a veteran of eight UN peacekeeping missions, was accused of committing rapes against Bosnian ...
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 earthly Kingdom is for earthly people, but the heavenly Kingdom is forever” Serbian national epic about the Kosovo Battle against the Ottoman Turks in 1389The American gangsters and the destruction of ex-YugoslaviaSouth-East Europe, and especially the Balkan Peninsula as the main part of it, have traditionally been the object of numerous geopolitical, geostrategic and publicist analyses, as well as the subject of debates among the Balkan, European and global experts in international relations. The new Iron Curtain between western and eastern Europe was not the end of the Balkan’s importance for the US administration and the NATO as well. At ...
Serbia organized an exhibition of cultural and historical heritage of Kosovo and Metohija in Paris, the headquarters of UNESCO, to serve as a reminder to the West of how they let it be destroyed since the 2000s.
There is a lot of Serbian cultural heritage in Kosovo and Metohija. Now, Kosovo is an independent state, partially recognized by Western countries. But the world was shocked by anti-Serbian riots organized by Albanians during the Kosovo unrest in 2004. Many Serbian monuments were damaged in the chaos.
Albanian extremists living in Kosovo, since the 2000s, have continued to raid and damage Serbian cultural heritage ...
The recent arrest of 40 alleged Islamic radicals in Kosovo together with the arrest of one of the Kosovo Imams suspected of being an inspirer of jihad in the region brought serious questions about the radicalisation of Islam and terrorism in Kosovo, in the Balkans and in Europe. Even though the issue of Kosovo Albanian volunteers or mercenaries fighting alongside the anti-Bashar forces in Syria and supporting the radical leadership of the Islamic State (earlier the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has been present in the public debate in Kosovo for at least a year, the debate itself was ...
Two German researchers claim that Germany owes Greece 185 billion euros in World War II reparations, of which less that 1 percent has been paid.
German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung reviewed a book called “Reparation Debt Mortgages of German Cccupation in Greece and Europe”, in which historian Karl Heinz Roth and researcher Hartmut Rubner, present documents of the dispute and conclude that, even though Berlin claims the war reparations issue was resolved in 1960, in fact nothing has been done about it.
According to their calculations, based on the study of mainly German documents, the total debt to Greece is 185 billion euros.
The book ...
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 ...
This April 4th will be 100 years since the U.S. Senate voted to declare war on Germany and 50 since Martin Luther King Jr. spoke out against the war on Vietnam (49 since he was killed on that speech’s first anniversary). Events are being planned to help us try to finally learn some lessons, to move beyond, not just Vietnam, but war.
That declaration of war on Germany was not for the war that makes up the single most common theme of U.S. entertainment and history. It was for the war that came before that one. This was the Great War, ...

In Bombs for Peace, George Szamuely, a senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute at London Metropolitan University, has produced a revealing and sharply argued analysis of Western intervention in the Balkan wars of the 1990s. The primary focus of the book is on Western diplomatic and military interventions, which played a crucial role in the breakup of Yugoslavia and the plunge into conflict. Continued intervention fueled deeper conflict, as ...
First of all, taking into consideration the particular region of the Balkans in the context of Russia's national interests, we should consult official documents reflecting the wishes and intentions of the government. It is therefore necessary to consider Russia’s foreign policy doctrine.
Foreign policy strategy
The Russian Federation's previous foreign policy doctrine was made public on July 15th, 2008.
Russian objectives were marked as the following:
- Impacting global processes in order to establish a just and democratic world order based on collective principles in solving international problems and on the rule of international law, primarily the UN Charter provisions as well as equal ...
Once again this March, the Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals, the Club of Generals and Admirals of Serbia and other independent non-party associations in Serbia pay tribute to the victims of NATO’s 1999 aggression on Serbia (FRY).
This aggression took lives of more than thousand defenders, military and the police and their officers, and also of thousands of civilians, including 87 children.
Regrettably, the final list of the civilian casualties has not been determined as yet, although the number is estimated to stand at over 3,000. About 10.000 people were wounded. However, the number of those who lost their ...
Introduction – Nothing is More Dangerous than a Discreet Nazi
People have been digesting the appointment of Stephen Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist and the sudden rise in overt racism and Nazi symbology. There are people saying “Heil Trump”, giving Nazi salutes, and spray-painting swastikas in alarming numbers. The US is a large, populous, diverse country, but there is clearly something of significance here beyond just a few ignorant teenagers with spraycans and emotional issues.
The overt Nazism is very disturbing. It was less than reassuring when Anne Coulter sought to tweet some perspective “Rachel shows FIVE PEOPLE at Richard Spencer meeting ...
The series of long-scale Christian national movements in the Balkans, triggered off by 1804 Serbian revolution, decided more than in the earlier centuries, the fate of Serbs and made ethnic Albanians (about 70% of whom were Muslims) the main guardians of Turkish order in the European provinces of Ottoman Empire. At a time when the Eastern question was again being raised, particularly in the final quarter of 19th and the first decade of 20th century, Islamic Albanians were the chief instrument of Turkey’s policy in crushing the liberation movements of other Balkan states. After the congress of Berlin (1878) an ...
