How do I feel ’bragging’ about the fact that my mum saved me from the bombings of Dresden?
- I am glad to have ‘e-met’ Chris Powis whose father was a WWII-Veteran with a heart and conscience with whom I can share the experiences of my parents that got imprinted on my thinking and feeling
- I feel proud of my mum and deeply sorry that she had to go through such a terrible experience
- I am reminded of her wonderful book of poems that she put together for her children – to illustrate what gave her strength when she needed it
- I used one of these sayings to announce her passing away:

Thousands of Troops Are Deployed on U.S. Streets Ready to Carry Out “Crowd
By Naomi Wolf
08/10/08 “AlterNet” — Background: the First Brigade of the Third Infantry Division, three to four thousand soldiers, has been deployed in the United States as of October 1. Their stated mission is the form of crowd control they practiced in Iraq, subduing “unruly individuals,” and the management of a national emergency.

Amy Goodman reported that an Army spokesperson confirmed that they will have access to lethal and non lethal crowd control technologies and tanks.
This article that I got as Electronz Ezine 859 is extremely painful to read for me as a German. I used to blush every time I had to say to a Jew that I was German and I had to explain Nazism to myself. The author also notes the parallels between what happens in the USA now and in Germany then, and I have read about an 80-year old German who left the USA because he had seen it all before.
So what’s the cause? Money is being used to employ people. And they are ‘just doing their job’. They don’t think about what they are doing. They don’t know what they are doing. They feel good in a pack.
MARTIAL LAW PREPARATIONS IN USA.
Maybe the heading for this should be “Sleeping down the slide into Fascism”, as the “Bush protecting” print and electronic news media fails to report what future historians may well call ominous thunder claps, as Haliburton companies complete construction of over 200 “Detention Centres” scattered around the U.S. (with tens of thousands of empty beds) , and now in peacetime, combat trained soldiers are being deployed around the country to “protect” the administration.
Thanks to wide awake reporters like Verne Warwick, John Pilger, and Richard Moore, etc, networks are being provided with authenticated stories covering these frightening developments. We believe there is a desperate need for this sort of information to become public, and if possible, wake up the American citizenry, before it is too late. The parallels between these significant steps and those of Nazi Germany are breathtaking.
More details are given in the following RKM network story, so do not say you have not been warned.
