Remembering Today

Morning radio/link trawl. What I dragged myself out of bed to diarise;

Fallujah is having the stuffing belted out of it. Am listening to gunfire from other side of world via radio as we spea- , as i write. Rumours have been circulating in the press for weeks about this one. Today the "offensive" has been launched. Gee wow. I am in awe.

NEAR FALLUJAH, Iraq -- Thousands of U.S. troops, backed by armor and a stunning air barrage, attacked the toughest strongholds of Sunni insurgents in Fallujah on Monday... - newsday.com

"NEAR FALLUJAH". What is that ? Security regulations playing up again ? Like Fallujah's fate hasn't been leaked all over the news for the last few weeks already. We all know what is wrong with War but what is wrong with being more specific ?

And also, it's Kristallnacht remembrance day today. How ironically appropriate.

On November 9, 1938, the Nazis unleashed a wave of pogroms against Germany's Jews. In the space of a few hours, thousands of synagogues and Jewish businesses and homes were damaged or destroyed. This event came to be called Kristallnacht ("Night of Broken Glass") for the shattered store windowpanes that carpeted German streets. The pretext for this violence was the November 7 assassination of a German diplomat in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, by Herschel Grynszpan, a Jewish teenager whose parents, along with 17,000 other Polish Jews, had been recently expelled from the Reich.

UPDATE; "NEAR AUSTRALIA". Ghetto's in Nauru, and there is money to be made from them.

Keke says it provides cash flow on the island, economic activity, and job opportunities

I guess we won't be seeing an end to concentration camps in the pacific any time soon then, seeing as they are such lucrative opportunities.

UPDATE UPDATE; 15th anniversary of Berlin Wall fall today.
