Hong Kong was transferred to China on 1 July 1997
Wasn't Hong Kong a UK vassal until 1999? Then they handed it back to China.
Who will the US hand Germany to in 2099? EU? Poland? I know, the Spanish Inquisition! Because nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Bring out the comfy chairs!
, after 156 years of British rule.
In your haste to be sarcastic for my comments, you failed to read the article I have posted above .... and most probably, missed my previous comments too!"The USA has decided that FYROM has to be Part of NATO and the EU, so the Greek and FYROM Governments have been following their instructions. As we have already discussed the USA has build a large Base in Kossovo “Bond Steel” to control not only the Balkan countries but also the new Pipe lines build in Greece to supply Gas to Austria and many other European countries.
Part of the orders to them is to get rid of any kind of Russian influence in the area of Greek Macedonia, Northern Greece, Skopje, Kosovo and Albania because their plan is to move all bases out of Germany and transfer it to the Balkans or Greece, where they will have access to hot waters and control East med, and Middle East."
At this stage may I remind you and ask; Why Germany, the past 2 years, has repatriated it's Gold from the US ?
Now here is something for you to learn, that obviously you are not aware of:
The American "mega-base" and the mini- Jihadists giafkes of ISIS in KosovoRecently I read in a newspaper that in Kosovo there are at least five camps of ISIS, anonymously or with misleading names. Logically this is to say that in each of these camps should be located several jihadists, tens or hundreds.
The US military base “Camp Bondsteel” in Kosovo.
So we know where are the camps and probably will not be very difficult to know (learn) equally precisely what is the "potential" of each camp.
We mention this information not only for the uninformed or simply to give some news that are considered interesting, but also because there is something much more important and revealing to what ultimately mean for the whole region.
Well, look what a coincidence! In Kosovo there is one large if not the largest US bases in the world, after they closed or reduced the one in Iraq.
It’s called Camp Bondsteel, but the Americans playfully call it Grand Dame It is just 149 km inside from the Greek borders and 26 km south of Skopje. It comprises of an area of 3,865 acres and it’s home to at least 9,000 American soldiers and all their heavy weapons.
It took three years to create the base and the land occupied belongs both to Kosovo and Macedonia, including the borders that supposedly exist (!), but don’t belong to any of the two "parties". Furthermore the position occupied it’s where it suits the Americans.
The building company is the well known “Halliburton” whose CEO was a government minister (and still has influence?) The notorious D.i.c.k Cheney, former Defence Minister and US vice president, was one of the onerous "hawks" of the Pentagon and the brutal "inventor" of the theory of the one percent (1%)!
Let us not forget that the Halliburton company it’s also the company contractor of the large energy AMBO pipeline 892 km in length, which will connect the Bulgarian port of Burgas with the Albanian port of Vlora passing through the southern edge of the base and will be carrying 750,000 barrels of oil per day.
AMBO is the acronym of (A lbanian- "M acedonian" - B ulgarian O il) the American consortium manufacturing energy channels, is building a pipeline that is linking the Black Sea with the Adriatic via FYROM (Macedonia) .
Don’t forget that even famous (and overrated for its "capacity") of gas pipeline TAP (Trans Adriatic Pipeline) that originates from Azerbaijan that will pass not far from the US base, whatever that means.
Both these pipelines will be controlled by the large US base from a runway for fighter aircraft that is build on the south-east of the "Great Lady", so close to the Greek border and whose obvious aim is the monitoring of all the Balkans, the Eastern Mediterranean and Russia's western borders.
The Camp Bondsteel base is so extensive that its road network is more than 25 km. The base is divided into three areas (central, middle and outside the region) and contains over 300 (!) Buildings, one of which is the best equipped hospital in Europe.
In both these twin bases are stationed at least 60 helicopters and 70 aircraft. The spaciousness of the camp is such that there plans to move there also the US air base in Aviano, Italy (from which were flying the American and British planes and bombed with depleted uranium Serbia in 1999).
The Brown & Root Services, a subsidiary of Halliburton, who built the camp, now manages the entire military region not only on the maintenance of the premises and also the diverse needs of the human element. So care the provision of about 650,000 gallons of water per day and the required amount of electricity power (which would require a city of 25,000). Also is responsible and prepares 20,000 meals and operates 1,200 washing machines every day.
Of course, in addition to the giant military base, the Americans have in Skopje and an equally gigantic Embassy, two "services" closely related to the supervision of an area from northern Greece to Israel and Romania / Czech Republic.
The Camp Bondsteel are also the logistics support centre for other US bases in Albania, Bulgaria and Romania. It hosts even the headquarters of the multinational force KFOR which supposedly protects the "state" of Kosovo.
We mention all these, simply to say that we know how big is the presence of the American army in a small place like Kosovo and how much control is exercised by its presence in a radius of at least 6,000 square kilometers.
Now we want to end up with a question that everyone will raise, having read what we have said up to here, and that is: with such a radius reach this huge American base must logically be located not far away from the FIVE jihadist camps that exist in tiny Kosovo itself?
More over possibly it should be located too close to any of the five, perhaps bordering!
So if it is true that Americans really fight against the ISIS, how it happens that in Kosovo they are close "roommates", American and jihadists in such "natural" way?
If indeed the Americans were fighting, really, the Islamic jihad, which does not appear to be the case in Kosovo, then the whole world can understand, how these "enemy" camps are neighbours like good pals?
In such case nothing can be excluded, if it is not already a fact, that one of the five camps of ISIS could be comfortably accommodated inside the vast and closely controlled American base! There is so much space! Certainly very cosy for everything and for those who are against the Europeans (Christians "crusaders") and adjacent Russian political projects, all are obstacles to US domination and expansion.
These logical questions then about what is happening outside the door of Greece is no less reasonable than the big questions directly related to the "theme" of the base in Kosovo, to which we do not find response: How it’s possible these same Americans, who for years say they are acting to eliminate the "Caliphate", have thrown in a year, as they say and we read over 13,000 bombs, missiles, rockets, etc. up to the ISIS fighters in Syria and these fighters are still alive (!) and still hold many large areas?
Maybe they don’t know - you may say - where they are and where they have their weapons. But with so many spy satellites and spies and secret services available to them, how they don’t "know" when they are able to "see" and "hear" anything?
What about the Echelon network and why is therefore?
Next is something else that still is very strange. If it’s true - and it is true that in Bosnia are trained about 800 jihadists - the existence of the ISIS camps in Ntestani area and near the towns Tzakovo and Urosevac, how the huge American camp, which also is located next to Urosevac, can "ignore" the jihadist camps and behave as they are not there?
Especially, how they "tolerate" the existence of what is supposed to be their enemies, just a few kilometres or maybe hundreds of meters away and do not to act to eliminate them, since the US government and US army claim they fight with force the Islamists of ISIS (or Daesh: pick and choose) and their purpose is to exterminate ISIS, their "child" that has been misbehaving?
Finally anybody may ask, how it happens and they are "living together" peacefully and amicably with so many spread around jihadist bases in Kosovo? The original Posted on the 21 September 2016 at http://mignatiou.com
