Germany plans for the 2010 World Cup

The Germans may not be a bundle of fun, but when it comes to planning they’re tops. No surprise then that BaySecur, who will look after the German Football Federation (DFB) at the 2010 WC in South Africa, warned the stars “to wear bullet-proof vests if they venture away from the team hotel”.

"The possibility for the players of moving outside of the hotel boundaries should be kept to a minimum," BaySecur's Guenter Schnelle told German magazine Sport-Bild . "Otherwise there must be a full escort: armed security guards and bullet-proof vests for the players."
.
Private bodyguards will protect the players both within and around the hotel.
.
Hardly a ringing endorsement of the Rainbow Nation, is it?
.
In conclusion, on the left is a still top-secret photo of the vehicle to be used for transporting the players to and from their hotel. It's working name is the Autosfahrenbildtschneissenfeldunersaltzobenunterschriften

I finish by quoting Securicor CEO Nick Buckles, Reuters, May 24 2009: "South Africa was the most dangerous country in the world to work in -- ahead of Iraq and Afghanistan..”

Heckuva job lads.

What regular soccer fan would go all the way to SA for the world cup - outside of a few nutter hooligans? My guess is that the stands will be filled with a lot of European/South American elites who are shuttled to and fro in armored cars.

The biggest problem will be the corruption of the police and security forces.

The few peons who do attend and get picked out of the herd, so to speak, will disappear from any MSM and police coverage.

99% of people beleive the MSM rubbish about SA. Followers will go there in their tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands. The result will be interesting

I'm eagerly looking forward to it! I hope the visitors experience what the rest of us in SA experience daily: Robbery, murder, rape. That will open their eyes.
