Im Laufe der Zeit, gab es schon viele solche Programme, aber irgendwelche abgeschobene Politologen, oder andere Gestalten, die zu dumm sind, eine Arbeit zu finden in Europa, müssen halt dann immer wieder alle 5 Jahre, die selben Programme, eneut aufleben lassen.

Balkan countries work to round up privately held weapons, ammunition
The Balkans remains a place where guns are kept in many homes, despite ongoing efforts to disarm the public.

The statistics about gun ownership regionwide are surprising and the results can be deadly. In Albania alone, for example, analyst Jonuz Kola estimated this summer that 6% to 9% of the population has a weapon in the home. Scores of accidental shootings occur, including that of a 9-year-old in Shkodra, who died at the hands of his 11-year-old brother on July 18th.
Xhavit Shala, an expert within the Albanian Interior Ministry notes that in 1997, a considerable amount of weapons ended up in the hands of civilians, increasing criminality: „From domestic violence to the organised crime,“ he tells SETimes.
The South Eastern and Eastern Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SEESAC) is spearheading efforts to boost national and regional capacities to control and reduce the spread and misuse of small and light weapons.
Iva Savic, project communications officer of the SEESAC Office in Belgrade, tells SETimes „De-militarisation is still considered an important task which is yet to be fully tackled by the governments in the region.“
She acknowledges that today SEESAC lacks reliable and comprehensive data on the exact number of illegal weapons circulating in various countries. But a 2007 SEESAC study concluded that „the Western Balkans, with a population of 19.6 million people, has almost 4,280,000 weapons in the hands of civilians.“
In Kosovo, the daily Koha Ditore quoted a UNDP survey. It found that out of 400,000 weapons in the hands of the citizens, 330,000 are illegal.
Mimoza Shahini, a leading Kosovo psychologist, tells SETimes, „Free access to the weapons presents a permanent danger not only for the physical safety of children … but also plays a role in the social and moral maturity of a child. Using weapons „increases the level of delinquency especially among young people“ and offers them a means for suicide. Those who witness gun violence, she adds, „suffer post-traumatic stress disorder“.
Savic says there is a clear commitment by governments in the region to tackle the issue of illegal weapons possession. She notes that the Croatia’s interior ministry launched a nationwide awareness-raising and arms collection campaign under the slogan „Less Arms, Less Tragedies“. Such programmes, says Savic, „should help change the current gun culture in the region, encourage the voluntary return of illegal weapons and stifle the desire to acquire them in the future“.
She adds that since 2007, the Croatian government has managed to collect 58,818 small arms and explosive devices, almost two million rounds of ammunition and nearly 2 tonnes of explosives from civilian homes. Hopefully, a similar campaign will begin in Serbia within months, she tells SETimes.
In addition, in both Serbia and Croatia, there are ongoing Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) destruction campaigns. With the assistance of SEESAC and the EU, Serbia’s interior ministry destroyed 28,285 surplus and confiscated weapons in 2010 and approximately 27,000 in 2009.
zu blöde zum arbeiten und Null Bildung, dann kommt man sich halt intelligent vor, wenn man viel herumballert, und seiner Traditionen u.a. des Plündern und Zerstören frönt, auf Raubzügen auch in andere Albanische Städte und Dörfer.
Und es gibt keine Justiz, noch Polizei, oder Bau und Grundstücks Gesetze in minimal Funktion, denn Alles regelen primitive Horden, wie im Steinzeit Alter und bei den Hunnen und Vandalen: Selbige hatten aber mehr Intelligenz, weil man nicht die eigene Natur und Umgebung zerstört.
Fun Facts About Our New Allies
The Progressive Review (Washington), 22 June 1999
“Albania … offered NATO and the U.S. an important military outpost in the turbulent southern Balkans (in the 1990-96 period Albania opened its ports and airstrips for U.S. military use and housed CIA spy planes for flights over Bosnia)…. The U.S. played a major role in the DP’s 1992 electoral victory, and it then provided the new government with military, economic, and political support. In the 1991-96 period Washington directly provided Albania $236 million in economic aid, making the U.S. the second largest bilateral economic donor (following Italy)…..Following Berisha’s visit to the U.S. in March 1991, Washington began supplying direct assistance to the DP, including donations of computers and cars for the 1992 electoral campaign. William Ryerson, the first U.S. ambassador, stood next to Berisha on the podium at election rallies. The U.S. failed to criticize, and at times encouraged, the new president as he purged critics of his policies within the judicial system, police, and the DP—often through illegal means. By 1993 DP loyalists and family members held most of the prominent positions in Albania’s ministries, institutes, universities, and state media. Citing the threat of communism’s return, Berisha successfully instilled fear in the population and discredited his rivals. The U.S. embassy in Albania contributed to the polarization of Albanian politics by refusing to meet most of the opposition parties (former communists as well as others) for the first two years of DP rule. This one-sided view of democratization helped Berisha dismantle most political alternatives, some of which were moderate and truly democratic.
