      The bunkers seem like a brilliant idea to help the people during the Cold War, when military attacks were a real possibility. The Soviets did it too, and they still maintain and test them today. Russia had drills just a year or so ago, which would have protected millions in Moscow alone. Rare Earth is a dumb douche.

    The video is educational and entertaining, however its built around a fallacy. A 40+ years of dictatorship will always have thousands of mistakes to address and make fun of, are really these bunkers the worst decision in all those years? I'm no expert in warfare, but I guess it will be a serious business to invade a city filled with pillboxes plus with all the civilians acting as militia, let alone the whole country. Again, I think the video took and engaging approach, a bold one, maybe not the best one.

      +Paguo A plan is really only as good as its execution, in my eyes. Of mice and men and all that. The Maginot line didn't serve its purpose so much as it had the potential to serve its purpose if factors that weren't accounted for were taken into effect. I agree it is unduly shit upon, but I don't think it is out of place in this video.

    • Paguo

      +Rare Earth the maginot line was supposed to work with the river Meuse running through Belgium. The only thing that falled was the execution in covering the Meuse shore because the German Blitz was, well, a blitz so the french and belgians were slow acting, otherwise Germany would have been hold off.
      I just think people shit to much on the Maginot line when it actually was a good plan

    I was one of the first 24 tourists to go to Albania just after his death. I was in the Montenegro area with my family and went into a Tourist Bureau. They had just been asked to provide 24 tourists for an "experimental" run into Albania, via a hydrofoil. I had four of the 24 tickets and off we went. It took nearly two hours to clear "customs" at a port (Durres?) - They literally did not know what to do, all the "Guides" were very fit young men in their mid twenties (Secret Police). We went to Tirana on a bus, through miles of countryside, right into the centre and never saw another car!! - These pillbox type things were everywhere!! - The "Guides"! struggled to explain them to us, they were embarrassed. I changed £20 into Albanian money and could not spend it, despite them opening up a "Sweet shop" especially for us. Gave the balance of the money to the "Guide", he nearly had a fit! - This was all before they became the Stolen Mercedes Car Capital of Europe. (I did get an explanation form one of the guides that they were removing the pillbox structures from the fields in a very unusual manner, they built up a fire inside, let the heat build up and then threw cold water on the top, evidently the effect was dramatic and effective)

    In the most polite way possible, your entire attempt to criticize the bunkers are based off of false conclusions and contradictory statements.
    For instance, you portray Albania as a useless country of no value and thus did not face the threat of invasion? However, you said yourself that Yugoslavia wanted to annex Albania, and the same about Greece. That means that either those countries want to invade a piece of useless land OR you are wrong about Albania's lack of strategic value. Either way, you kind of are incorrect. The most obvious advantage one could have through Albania is political influence and security for its neighbours. No matter how small, any unfriendly neighbour is a dangerous neighbour.
    Perhaps the bunkers were not good for "economic progress", but what good is ‘economic progress' to a country when focusing on it will likely result in the country no longer existing?
    ’Also, you portray the bunkers as primarily for "guerrilla warfare". Sorry, but that really is not true. For starters, it is better to have more than too little. Should the need arise, not every bunker was to be used, nor were all bunkers identical. Do you seriously think that each bunker has been assigned four people? The bunkers were constructed so that all parts of the country could be defended when necessary. Furthermore, it serves as immediate protection from potential air strikes. As we see, the government was quite accurate in that prediction, as Albania's neighbours were destined to get air raided decades later. What is wrong with building air raid shelters? Every country that could do so at the time did that. Albania simply added slots so that shelters could double as defense posts if necessary. Oh, and by the way, the rest of the world did not "move on" from WWII guerrilla warfare. WWII era tactics were still very much in use regions such as Vietnam and neighbouring countries. The NLF could only dream of having so many bunkers, so please do not misrepresent peoples you know nothing about.
    But most of all, you tried to obscure the fact that Albania was actually a country that needed defense plans. However, isn't that what so many in the west are so good at? After all, everyone said Vietnam didn't need worry about war... until it suddenly did. Hitler said that Poland need not worry... then he invades it. The west said the Balkan nations need not worry... then they bomb Yugoslavia and destroy the region. It is better safe than sorry. You really don't understand how dangerous it is to be a small country during the Cold War, do you?

    Like it or not I am going to say this. Serbs and Albanians were NEVER caught up fighting as countries against each other. During ww1, Albanians LET Serbs pass through the Albanian Golgotha. The two nationalities were living like best neighbours during communism at Kosovo. There was no fighting, no guerilla warfare, no Europe messing with the two nationalities. Now that Communism fell apart and US got their hands onto western Balkans all went to shit. Milosevic was as bad as US was. US started funding terrorists to heat the things up at Kosovo. They funded people to kill each other. Are our lives less worth then money? Think about that. You would say no. But someone WOULD kill you for money, that's what US did and got the whole region corrupt and against each other. If that wasn't enough, imagine living on Kosovo. In a city where there are 50% albanians and 50% serbs freely walking around passing next to each other. Would you really be assuming who they are without knowing the person? We are all just humans, Nations devides us, languages separate us, religion classifies us.. There shouldn't be hate towards each other. I saw one Albanian grandma selling apples at the streets of Skadar (Albanian city at the north), and from that moment on I knew what that woman was thinking. She was thinking how to survive this cruel world. How to overcome the taxes. She wasn't thinking about serbs fighting albanians or such. Every human that walked pass her was same. Now of course if you want to find out what I did. I bought 4 kilos of apples and paid the woman in Euros, just because I was scared that I may get attacked if someone saw a Serbian dinar in public. That's what I am speaking about. Recently an albanian brought his friend in Novi Sad and both of them got beaten up because they were speaking albanian at the center of Novi Sad. I am hoping that they are alright. But that guy's life could've been ruined just because the two nations 'hate' each other. Now I know that this comment section and video have nothing to do with this. I just wanted to point out that not all serbs hate albanians and the same goes for the other way around.

    Hoxha was a paranoiac dictator that spent 75% of government budge on military. Hoxha was also smart enough to know that western countries had no interest in Albania but it was the surrounding countries that could have annihilated Albania. Greece and Yugoslavia did grab land prior to Albania claiming independence so had Hoxha not stood up Albania we know today probably wouldn’t have existed. Is sad that he never looked up to West to help grow but he shut its people from West and isolated them for decades!

    • Rare Earth
      Rare Earth  Month ago

      +Xaeus Borg it isn't. They spent between 25% and 50% of *all* GDP on the bunkers. That's why the military was upset. Because the money that should have gone to them went to bunkers...

    • Xaeus Borg
      Xaeus Borg Month ago

      +Rare Earth Their lack of army and tech is unrelated to things like bunkers. Some of the countries had 10 times the army they have now. It was a general policy enforced to dismantle them, because NATO 'protects' them in case of something. Additionally, instead of the general population being able to defend themselves, now the armies are 'professional' meaning just a few actually know how to fight. In case of conflict, the effectiveness of a defense in such a country is about 10-15% of that before the 90s.

    • Rare Earth
      Rare Earth  Month ago

      +Xaeus Borg Yes, some lacked that army because they wasted all their money on bunkers. Like in Albania. That's my point.
      The bunkers weren't tactical. They just looked that way to the average person not in the military. It's tricking people even to this day, clearly.

    • Rare Earth
      Rare Earth  Month ago

      +Xaeus Borg I'm not sure how that changes the bunkers being a bad idea, though. The military would have benefited more from the funds spent on the bunkers being put towards a functional army, navy, or air force.
      Hoxha came to power as a guerilla in wartime confusion, so he drastically overrated his military genius, as I'm sure many of us do.

    • Xaeus Borg
      Xaeus Borg Month ago

    I remember seeing Albanian bunkers from Yugoslavia. They were spaced about 150 metres apart and layered deeply into the Albanian hills. Everyone said Enver Hoxha was a shit leader, a poor politician and a complete nutter.
    We are all better off having lost the likes of Hoxha and Tito.

  • Jessica Amadeus Jackson

    It is not a bad idea when you live in an area like Balkan, and when you have neighbours like greeks and serbs who are known for causing wars and committing genocides against their neighbors. Greeece in 1944 had just committed a horrible genocide against albanian cham community in Chameria, and then Kosovo war in 1999. Hoxha was right. Albania has no allies. If it did, its terriorries wouldnt have been divided between 4 Balkanic countries in 1913

    Hope you enjoyed your stay in Albania Rare Earth. As you yourself have experienced , albania sells nowdays - and not only for the bad news-. We are on that right trajectory of economic & social prosperity as well as cultural convergece with the European values - given our 500 years forced divergence - . Ofc we need 2-3 more decades however it seems feasible. All in all , thank you for the advertisment and your objective representation - even flattering at times-.
    P.S By the end of this year Albania will have welcomed around 6 million tourists with a 20 % increase year to year. Same for the exports of physical products which have increased at 20% as well.

    Enver Hoxha was not a paranoid man , he was very smart indeed .The man learned from the past .He was surrounded with enemy Slavic countries that wanted the divide Albania , so that the world would never know that there was a native nation in that area . after the world wars , Albania was divided in many pieces that even today are visible in balcan ,some were given to Serbia ,some were given to Greece ,some to Monte negro , some to Northern Macedonia.And that with the help of the European countries of that time .So no wounder that guy had to build 750 000 bunkers to defend itself , we years before the Albanians faced genocide during the WW1 and WW2 and before and before and before . In his time as a president -good luck invading Albania or good luck building 750 000 tomahawk missals.

      +Rare Earth they might disagree on the fact that he was over paranoid, sure, but not on the fact that Albania was still surrounded by hostile nations and entities that wanted to carve the Albanian lands up for themselves. it actually happened before hoxha was in power. he was paranoid by the criteria of that time when things were beginning to settle.
