Opposing Russia and Turkey: the US press explained the intention to create the headquarters of American special forces in Albania

17

The Pentagon announced its intention to place the headquarters of the US Army Special Forces in Albania. As officially indicated, he will be called upon to deepen relations with Washington's partners as opposed to the "malicious influence" of unnamed forces.


At the same time, the American edition of The Insider identified the "ill-wishers" of American hegemony. As noted, the organization of the headquarters of the US Special Operations Command is designed to counter "Russian aggression and the growing influence of Turkey in the region."

As expected, the staff will be in Albania on a rotational basis and consist of only 10-15 people, but the highest officers. This country was chosen, according to the Pentagon, because of "proximity to the main transport hubs in the Balkans."

The US press explains that the White House is dissatisfied with the influence of Russia that has been preserved since Soviet times on some Balkan states, including Serbia, Bosnia and Bulgaria. As an anonymous interlocutor of The Insider explained, the region is dominated by the Slavs, which Moscow uses, "playing the card of ethnic proximity."

Albania is a predominantly Muslim country. But this pushes her into the "embraces" of another, which has become an "ill-wisher" for Washington - Turkey. Moreover, Ankara has invested heavily in the development of Albania.

      By 2013, Albania became the largest exporter of marijuana, cocaine and heroin to the EU countries. In 2014 - the leader in the marijuana trade. Dozens of families (the exact number is known only to the Albanian special services), including Kula, Brokai (former security forces), Abazi, Boritsi, Elshani, Suma, Haliti and others, subjugated the underworld in the Balkan countries and actively established ties with "colleagues", including with mafiosi from such well-known Italian clans as the 'Ndrangheta.
      ...
      In January 2019, the British edition of The Guardian, based on data from the National Crime Agency, reported that the Albanian mafia had become the leader in the sale of cocaine in the UK, with an annual turnover of 5 billion pounds.

      The US military is drawn to the drug business like flies to jam.
      No sooner had they left Afghanistan than they immediately became concerned about their presence in Albania.

        From time immemorial, the Albanians have been doing this, and the British have only now found out.

        how could it become the largest exporter, maybe a transit country? Heroin production-Afghanistan is on the 1st place, cocaine seems to be growing and being produced in South America, but marijuana can grow everywhere.

        While the Americans were in Afghanistan, the Tsrushniks set up transit through the Balvania to the EU, now they left Afghanistan leaving everything to the Taliban and will sit in transit, that's why these 10 snouts came there to manage the drug trade through criminals.

      -and the growing influence of Turkey in the region
      That is, a NATO ally ....
      There are about 5 million ethnic Albanians in Turkey. The total population in Albania is 3 and Kosovo is about 2 million.
      So it is not known whose influence is greater.

        An interesting picture is drawn winked In addition to the 5 million Albanians with whom the mattresses became friends, there are still about 18 million Kurds living in Turkey, with whom the United States is also friends to the detriment of Turkey. It turns out that mattresses in their hands may not have a frail, 23-million-strong battering ram to destabilize the internal situation in Turkey, while Edik, with the idea of ​​reviving the Ottoman Empire, climbs into Asia and the Transcaucasus.

    By doing this, they themselves are pushing Turkey towards a confrontation with the United States. Yes, and the Muslim population of Albania will support Turkey, rather than the United States, it is not clear what orientation.

    And today, Lech Walesa, completely in his old age, has ceased to be friends with his head:
    “The whole world must mobilize and prevent Ukraine from being hit. If [Putin] attacks Kiev, there should be an immediate response: an attack on Moscow. We need to be prepared to prevent this.”
    In his opinion, Poland should "do everything, even recruit volunteers." “We must put all the forces that we have at the disposal of Ukraine,” Walesa stressed.

        He then pulled Poland into NATO, thanks to his pro-American policy. To Poland, he was like from a bell tower, he removed all his opponents from the chessboard, even before he came to power.
