The Albanian opposite continues to intensify the popular request for resignation of Prime Minister Sali Berisha accused for corruption and responsibility of dangerous situation that the country is passing to the new destabilization. NATO needs more troops to be guaranteed the peace and stability of the country.

Today, again the opposite has called the Albanian people to protest in capital, Tirana against the indifference of Prime Minister Sali Berisha, accused for corruption and responsible for Gardeci massacre, after the blast of Military Base near Tirana, where dead 30 persons and other 300 injured.

The Prime Minister Berisha continues to head the Albanian government under the strong pressing of Albanian media, opposition and large opinion particularly in southern of Albania known as supporters of Socialist Party in opposite.

Also today, the President Bamir Topi, headed a special meeting of Albanian National Security saying for any responsibility of the massacre to be inqiuried by Albanian Attorney.

Anywhere, in a decisive moment when Albania is wanting to joint to NATO alliance previsted for next April in Bucharest, the corruption inside Defense Ministry has opened a new big scandal between Washington and Tirana. According to the press, there is directly including the son of Berisha as member of corruption clan which has prohibited an US enterprise to have the right of a military agreement with Albanian authorities to buy Albanian munitions financed by Pentagon.

Seeing the escalation destabilization in Albania, NATO had previsted months ago, to raise the NATO troops in Albanian territory, requesting Albanian government to change the article 12 of Albanian constitution which prohibits the foreign military presence without authorization of Parliament (over 2500 troops).

According to analysis, there are many possibilities that the Albanian stability to lost the control between the government headed by Sali Berisha and politically opposition headed by Edi Rama if the request of opposite for resignation of Prime Minister Berisha to be not realized. The consequences of a new confrontation between northern and southern population such was the Civil War of 1997, would be deviated taking in consideration by more presence of NATO troops if soon as possible the primary objective of NATO for the moment is to raise the troops in Albanian territory.

The Albanian economy is going to high inflation and more of 35% of population live under poverty level. Another risk of destability is the interruption of international football activity of Albania after decisions of FIFA and UEFA where often the matches of national football team, became arena of Albanian nationalism to demonstrate the aspirations inside national stadium.
