NATO and NATO member states, separately and together, destroy non-belligerent countries as policy. They destroy the rule of international law, they destroy socially uplifting economies, they destroy democratic political economies, they create millions of refugees, and their wars of aggression impose the death penalty on millions.

NATO committed these crimes against the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and beyond.

We in the West are responsible for this. We are the brutal, globalizing dictators[1].

These imperial wars of aggression kill, brutalize, and diminish, men, women, and children. There is not anything humanitarian about NATO wars. These wars have been, and are being, sold to gullible domestic populations by ubiquitous criminal war propaganda[2].

When Westerners enlist for the military, they are killing, and dying, and being crippled (mentally and physically), based upon war lies.

As NATO and its allies destroy sovereign states and their peoples, we are all diminished and impoverished. The political economies advanced by NATO are predatory and dictatorial. Prey countries become enslaved to imperial diktats. Increasingly, too, transnational agencies of imperialism driven by publicly bailed-out monopoly "capitalism", and failed neoliberal economic schemes[3] impose "internal imperialism" on domestic populations. Countries such as Canada are losing their sovereignty and increasingly becoming "treatied substates"[4], subservient to failed, impoverishing, neoliberal economic ideologies and globalizing military alliances such as NATO.

Canada needs to break free from NATO's impoverishing, imperial diktats. We need a sovereign, independent foreign policy. It can be done, and it should be done. Article 13[5] of the NATO constitution provides us with the legal mechanism to do so.

See full text of North Atlantic Treaty here

NATO Is an Appendage of the U.S. Empire

All we need is the political will for peace, justice, and sovereignty to make it happen.

NATO intervened against a criminal regime in Yugoslavia that committed genocidal crimes.

Of course it was the Yugoslavian Regime that was illegally trading in organs taken by force from the unwilling, wait it was the other side. Since the establishment of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) in 1999, it has been known to the international community that Kosovo is a major destination territory for human trafficking, women and young girls trafficked into forced prostitution. Organ trafficking from the unwilling prisoners of the Kosovo Regime along with human trafficking are still being prosecuted and convicted currently. Do you have no shame?


The breaking up of Yugoslavia by NATO was part and partial of attacking Russia from the underbelly using jihadist and criminals, that is an exposed fact BF.

Not true, none of that. Even trafficking of organs, while not proven, was done by Serbs (personal communication).

Do you have any support for any of the false claims that you made?

Spreading lies is wrong.

Kosovo organ trafficking inquiry chief vows to investigate all e vidence

Kosovo Organ-Trafficking: How the Claims were Exposed

The Bloody Yellow House; The most notorious place in Albania

Kosovo doctors' organ trafficking convictions confirmed

The KLA and the Origins of Organ Harvesting in the Balkans

The Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) has been accused of organ harvesting during the period of 1998-1999. Dick Marty published a 2010 report for the European Council on organ harvesting and trafficking in Kosovo and Albania. The report specifically names Kosovo president Hashim Thaci, then leader of the KLA, as being involved in organ harvesting.

Note; Open source investigator George Webb has linked organ harvesting activities to regions where the US government contractor DynCorp has been operating. These countries include Haiti, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan among others. DynCorp's involvement in human trafficking in the Balkans has been well documented and the origins of organ harvesting also have roots in the region.

Israelis among donors and buyers as Kosovo court jails 2 for organ harvesting

An Israeli national was arrested in Cyprus. He has been wanted since 2010 both by Interpol and Russia on charges of human trafficking and intentional infliction of grave injuries. Kosovo has asked for his extradition, as has Russia. A Turkish physician wanted in the case is also at large.

A Council of Europe report in 2010 claimed that leaders of the Kosovo independence fighters were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Serbs, Roma and ethnic Albanians suspected of collaborating with the Serbs, and the harvesting and sale of their organs, during the 1998-1999 war in which some 10,000 people died and 1,700 went missing.

The following link may be more than the time you want to contemplate but a good resource for all things related to the Balkan wars and the destruction of Empire.

The UNMIK Files
The UNMIK Files (see below) are a collection of 24 documents produced internally by former employees of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo between 2004 and 2006. This materiel was not meant for external release or use. To the best of our knowledge, these documents have not been released by other media. We are releasing them today (February 17, 2018) - exactly 10 years after Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia.

The authorization of UNSCR 1244 on 10 June 1999 ended NATO's 78-day bombing of Yugoslavia. This Resolution cleared the way for the UN to establish itself as legal administrator of Kosovo, without prejudice to its final status.

Although UNMIK retains a minor presence in Kosovo today, its role has since 2008 largely been taken over by local government with oversight from the EU mission in Kosovo, EULEX.

Why are these documents important?

The UNMIK Files provide a unique, if incomplete, glimpse into the actual working realities of the UN's peacekeeping bureaucracy in Kosovo. The cache is thus important for two reasons.

Firstly, it illustrates how such missions operate, what kind of content they produce, how their structural analysis is conducted, and indeed reveals that such activities are the outcome of a lavishly-funded international operation. It thus raises questions regarding the necessity and relative benefit of such missions in a world that is likely to see an increase in number and geographical remit, owing to migration, war and the 'climate change' agenda.

Secondly, the facts related in these documents, such as specific incidents of violence and other events, will be of interest to anyone concerned with the post-war events that occurred in Kosovo through the end of the documents available (mid-2006). In many ways, the mandate and attention to goals and standards in these documents came in reaction to the March 17, 2004 riots, when 50,000 Kosovar Albanians attacked local Serbs, causing a mass exodus. This was a turning point for both Kosovo and the UNMIK mission, and these documents show a revealing picture of an international administration trying to redefine and indeed justify its presence in the light of fast-changing ground events and diplomacy.

All your reports refer to a single case of a clinic that committed crimes in Kosovo without any relationship to Yugoslav Serbian crimes and the US.

There was no "organs taken by force from unwilling." Lie.

http://www.europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes/STUD/2015/549055/EXPO_STU%282015%29549055_EN.pdf :

"8.3.3 The Medicus trafficking network, Kosovo The illegal transplant activities at the Medicus Clinic in Priština, Kosovo first attracted attention in October 2008 when the Kosovo police and the Immigration service noticed foreigners arriving at the airport carrying letters of invitation to the Medicus Clinic for the treatment of heart conditions. The Medicus Clinic was not particularly renowned for treating this disease. Subsequently, in November 2008, three persons who turned out to be an Israeli organ broker, an organ supplier on his way back to Istanbul and a third person who turned out to be the brother of the recipient to whom the supplier had given his kidney were stopped at the airport. The supplier was questioned, but was found to be in a very poor health condition. He confessed to having had his kidney removed. Upon this, the Medicus Clinic was searched by local police, the Department of Organised Crime and UNMIK International police. The recipient of the kidney was actually present at the clinic. The director and the owner of the clinic were arrested, and all records and computers seized. UNMIK police took over the lead in the investigation from the local police because of the sensitive political situation in Kosovo. During the investigation and prosecution it was established that the owner of the Medicus Clinic (an urologist) had already in 2005 made contacts in Turkey to set up the trafficking network. In the following years a Turkish transplant surgeon was contracted to perform transplants in Priština and was granted a licence by the Kosovo Ministry of Health in 2008. The MOH also approved a licence for the Medicus Clinic to perform transplants, in spite of the fact that the Kosovo health law prohibited organ transplants. In 2008 at least 24 organ suppliers were recruited in foreign countries (Israel, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus) and transported to Kosovo. These suppliers were matched to 24 recipients (from Ukraine, Israel, Turkey, Poland, Canada and Germany) and the transplant took place. The nationality of nine suppliers and five recipients could not be traced. All suppliers had to sign a document saying that they donated their kidney voluntarily to a relative or altruistically to a stranger, without any payments. They were given only short time to agree and had to sign false declarations in the local language without explanation of the content. After 4-5 days the suppliers were discharged and sent on their way home. Suppliers were promised in advance a 'fee' of up to USD 30 000. A number of them received only part of Trafficking in human organs 39 the money and some nothing at all. They were promised the remainder of the money on condition that they themselves would recruit other 'donors'. In total six suppliers testified at the trial. The recipients contacted the main brokers through word of mouth, and payments for the transplant were agreed for a total of USD 108 000, to be paid in advance in instalments or in cash at the arrival at the clinic. Most recipients would fly to Priština via Istanbul and were often escorted. They were issued letters of invitation for undergoing medical treatment at the Medicus Clinic to show at the airport immigration desk. Some were instructed to tell they were on travelling for leisure. After the transplant surgery they were discharged after a short period and were given information on their treatment to present to doctors in their home countries. When the EU Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) was deployed in Kosovo, the prosecution of the trafficking case was handed over to EULEX. The investigation was complicated by the fact that the Kosovo political elite was under suspicion of being involved in the trafficking (e.g. the MOH having given out a licence to the clinic and the surgeon). Another problem was that no official search warrant had been issued at the time of the clinic search by the police. Also, the actual legal assistance and logistic support by the local court administration proved extremely difficult and challenging. From an international legal point of view making requests for legal assistance proved complex because the autonomous status of Kosovo was not unanimously recognised by all countries (e.g. cooperating with Russia was nearly impossible). Later on in the prosecution, once the relations with foreign specialists were firmly established, international cooperation became smooth. In April 2013 the defendants were found guilty of trafficking in persons and organised crime, the owner of the clinic was also found guilty of unlawful exercise of medical care. Other charges, such as abuse of official position, inflicting grievous bodily harm, fraud and forging documents were rejected. Sentences included imprisonment up to eight years and a EUR 10 000 fine. Two other defendants were acquitted. However, after their initial arrest in 2008 the main broker (Israeli) and the Turkish surgeon left Kosovo, and in 2010 they became the subject of an International Wanted Notice of Interpol. The surgeon was later (2011) arrested in Turkey but released on bail in Istanbul, and remains on the Interpol list. The Israeli broker was finally arrested in Israel in 2012 on the basis of the Interpol warrant, and accused of separate organ trafficking acts. Their prosecution and sentencing in the Kosovo case now depends on their extradition. Some conclusions: The Medicus case shows that successful prosecution in a suspected trafficking case depends very much on timely investigation and arrests, and seizure of all relevant documents. In this case the analysis of the anaesthetists' operation logs proved decisive. Prosecution by EULEX was based from the start on charges of trafficking in persons and organised crime. A number of suppliers and recipients could be traced and their statements taken. Suppliers were considered victims of exploitation, fraud and coercion, and some of them acted as witnesses for prosecution. An initial stumbling block was the establishment of international legal cooperation (requesting legal assistance) involving numerous countries. Finally, the prosecution of some of the main culprits was frustrated because their extradition did not prove possible."

Again, don't spread lies.

"All we need is the political will for peace, justice, and sovereignty to make it happen."

And the only thing required there is that everyday citizens understand how those concepts directly impact their lives, moment-by-moment, year-after-year. Otherwise, such contradictory, self-sabotaging, immoral, unsustainable, and thoroughly deplorable behavior will continue to be an integral part of the foreign policy of NATO and, of course, its whip-master, the U.S. of A.

Will help when people understand that a lot of modern day true prophets were dragged down here as the stars and hosts of heaven trampled in Daniel 8:8-14, but no one wants to talk about the damn Bible anymore,,, for who would want to become like the religious right who is the little horn of Daniel 7, who has been shattering the power the power of the hippy people of Daniel 12:7. Don't care much now, as departed wife Marie would say in Belgium, "It will be over my dead body." Be glad to be with my best friend in her cottage in a village far, far away from you all!
