A Roadmap to Peace: Five Peacebuilding Cornerstones


A Roadmap to Peace: Five Peacebuilding Cornerstones

Matthew Albracht

We live in a world that faces constant and often debilitating conflict and violence. As we see daily, this trauma intimately touches our lives, our families, our communities and reaches across the planet. From Baltimore to Syria, from Sandy Hook to Afghanistan, the examples are tragically, countless.


Flying under the radar is another ever growing conflict in the nation of Macedonia. At first appearance this appears to be ethnic strife between ethnic Albanians and Macedonians.

When one looks closer and reads more on this we find once again the hand of Ms Nuland and the US State department orchestrating another of their "color revolutions’. The current elected leader of Macedonia is seen as too independent. He does not want to pick sides in the struggle between the US with their European puppets and Russia feeling his country is better off being on friendly terms with Russia.

The Russians have approached both Greece and Macedonia suggesting their countries be used as a corridor for a natural gas pipeline that would bypass the Ukraine and bring Russian gas to those countries and then into the EU. The United States of America is leaning on these countries to refuse proposing a pipeline they back instead which would not use Russian gas.

So to the point and in response to this article.

How would these 5 peacebuilding cornerstones prevent this from happening in the future? The following would seem the most pertinent to that question but given the US uses aid organization and mediation processes so as to INSERT themselves into a geographical area so as to assert their OWN control over that region the methods under “fostering international peace” simply become a Trojan Horse allowing those using its cover to come out and commit their slaughter.

FOSTERING INTERNATIONAL PEACE: Championing peacebuilding approaches to international conflict and atrocity prevention in hotspots through mediation, diplomacy, and effective on-the-ground programs. Important components may involve development, post-conflict justice, humanitarian aid, mediation and support for frameworks necessary for democratic processes.

A step 6 is needed and step 6 revolves around breaking the power of the 1 percent that is running things and the erosion of the champion of that 1 percent , the United States of America as a superpower.
