I'm sorry to be the bearer of dreadful tidings, but there's no getting away from it. Germany and the US are at war again! In effect, how can I say this, but WW II has resumed.
I learned of this shocking development from the AP news syndicate. Their banner headline says it all.
US Drone strike kills 8 German militants in northwest Pakistan
Now on first reading this I thought there had been a repetition of the famous case where Japanese soldiers, lost in Borneo, continued the war for forty years after its supposed ending.
.But that was clearly not the case here. I say this because Konrad Freiberg, head of the German police union, told the Passauer Neue Presse in its Tuesday edition that "ever more Germans are traveling to Afghanistan and Pakistan for militant training, and a large number of them have returned and are living here."
So the obviously know that WW II is officially over - yet they continue to fight on!
The only upside is that the neocons and the Israeli Lobby will be thrilled at the prospect of another war, and the chance to get even with the old enemy at last.
