  • Don't buy what happened one bit. One, they didnt' talk about the individuals arrested where are they? Are they sentenced or in prison? And then said firefight, how many of the villiagers and "mercenaries" where killed? Nothing about that. What country is going to end a business that is generating 1 half their GDP a year?

    That was done for the EU while they where watching so that Albania could get accepted. That much money politicians and even the president of Albania was getting a cut. And if they had to arrest anyone for real it was most likely clans or families or individuals who wouldn't pay "tax" on their earnings.
