GERB Crime Stunt Fed by US, but Backfired

Letters to the Editor | March 29, 2011, Tuesday // 20:53| Views: | Comments: 9

The recent releases by Wikileaks of the 2005 Uncensored Diplomatic Cable on Organized Crime in Bulgaria, proves how much the Americans know about it and why there is a smear campaign against the Ambassador in Sofia.... James Warlick. It should be no surprise that the Americans have this information, as it's in their interest to gather and assimilate everything via the CIA about every country in the world. Uncle Sam, watches, listens and manipulates when required.

It also confirms that the flurry of activity by the Interior ministry and police in arresting lots of alleged crime bosses, in the first big publicity exercise of the new GERB government, was with information supplied by the Americans. Unfortunately the stunt back fired so it is now history, and criminal activities in one of the most corrupt countries in Europe continues unabated.

The other interesting thing that comes out of the report is how skillful Organized Crime in Bulgaria has been over the last twenty years; in infiltrating and setting up legitimate businesses, which now control nearly everything through its cartels... they got two bites of the cherry !!

The influence of businessmen over the politicians and the judiciary is not a Bulgarian phenomenon...that's worldwide!!!

Bulgaria's Parliamentary Speaker Refutes US Ambassador

Of course the Americans haven't got a clue what's going on in Bulgaria !!!

I bet the Americans are pulling their hair out knowing what they do about the crime, corruption/ legal system here and the Bulgarians not utilising that privileged information.

Still at least the their Ambassador is doing his best in bringing awareness to it!

"western criminal have figured out how to steal legally from the population"

Yes, very true. Western criminals a.k.a. governments are mercilessly fleecing and extorting their tax payers.

In Bulgaria it is still possible for the average man to become an elite criminal, whereas in the west almost all opportunities are closed.

It’s good to know in these times of high unemployment and career opportunity’s, that Bulgaria still has lots of positions waiting to be filled !

" of the most corrupt countries in Europe..."

The difference in countries is that the western criminal have figured out how to steal legally from the population and they commit less human rights violations in their own countries. (They have no problem doing it in other countries, though)

In Bulgaria it is still possible for the average man to become an elite criminal, whereas in the west almost all opportunities are closed.

Perhaps I'm a bit cynical.

Noun- Failing is an act or instance of general incompetence... does this sound familar when assciated with the current Goverment ?
