Des prix Nobel de la paix 1973 et 1999
Et cette Diane Johnstone, comment elle le sait que les interventions humanitaires sont une nouvelle façon d’affirmer la suprématie américaine?! Quels sont ses postulats ontologiques et épistémologiques?! Avant de dire n’importe quoi, faudrait peut-être commencer par savoir de quoi est composée la matière qu’on recherche et comment on compte faire sa recherche hein ?! xfrancoisx
It looked like an imitation of Guantanamo, recalls Alvaro Gil Robles, the Human Rights Commissioner for the Council of Europe. In the largest military base in the Balkans and in Europe, camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, Robles saw between 15 and 20 prisoners. All of them were dressed in orange suits. An american soldier who was on the base told him that the prisoners had been sent from Guantanamo to Kosovo. The visit of the Human Rights Commissioner Robles to Bondsteel, that "little Guantanamo," as he called it in his report, took place three years ago. The report, however, remained almost unnoticed until a few weeks ago, when the CIA's secret prisons in Eastern Europe became international news.
Camp Bondsteel is situated in the Balkans, that "most savage and least stable corner of Europe" (The Economist), close to the small Kosovo town of Urosevac. Let's be reminded that Kosovo was liberated by NATO troops in a humanitarian operation which "forced the Serbs to reject a regime of genocide and domination" (Financial Times) and which caused 1800 civilian casualties along the way. The liberators' first humanitarian gift to the local population was the construction of a base that is considered the largest US military base built on foreign soil since the Vietnam war. It covers over 320 hectares of land. About 4000 American soldiers live there; they enjoy the use of a library, news kiosk, a beauty salon, a Burger King and a few churches. On November 29th a darts tournament was held there.
This military base is a symbol of American humanitarian interests in the Balkans, "Europe's last dirty backyard" (The Economist). It is situated directly over the future oil and gas lines which, according to plan, ought to lead from the Bulgarian port Burgas - now an American base in which it is suspected "terrorist interrogations" of the not-so-legal variety have also taken place - through Macedonia and Kosovo, all the way to Valona on the Albanian Adriatic coastline. The study for this plan was made by the company Halliburton formerly run by the American vice president Dick Cheney, which - surprise, surprise - also built Camp Bondsteel.
