Kosovo is a tiny parcel of land in one of the most strategic locations in all Europe
from a geopolitical standpoint of the US military objective of controlling oil flows and political developments
from the oil-rich Middle East to Russia and Western Europe.
The current US-led recognition of the self-declared Republic of Kosovo is a continuation of US policy for the Balkans
since the illegal 1999 US-led NATO bombing of Serbia
[ not a photo of 911 ]
—a NATO “out-of-area” deployment never approved by the UN Security Council,
allegedly on the premise that Milosevic’s army was on the verge of carrying out a genocidal massacre of Kosovo Albanians.
Some months before the US-led bombing of Serbian targets,
one of the heaviest bombings since World War II,
a senior US intelligence official in private conversation told Croatian senior army officers in Zagreb
about Washington’s strategy for former Yugoslavia.
According to these reports, communicated privately to this author,
the Pentagon goal already in late 1998 was to take control of Kosovo in order to secure a military base
to control the entire southeast European region
down to the Middle East oil lands.
