HARIBO’s Musée du Bonbon : 1996 HARIBO opened the Musée du Bonbon at its Uzès production site. Since then, more than 120 000 visitors have visited the small factory site in Uzes a small town in the South of France, to find out about the history of liquorice, fruit gum and sweet manufacturing.
With its hundreds of old documents of production technology, the "Musée du Bonbon" is unique. Admirers of old promotional items dating from the period around beginning of 20th century you can enjoy a wide variety of historical posters and packaging of all types. Old machines and workshops are used to provide the visitor with a vivid depiction of the history of sweets.
The good news first is that the political responsible of most NATO member states do not need to get used to the specific situation in Ukraine. They live completely carefree with their oh-so-great successes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. In these newly liberated countries too is neither order nor a reliable judiciary - and certainly no prospect for a civilized life for ordinary people. So, if the road to hell is paved with all this good intentions the political leaders of NATO member states face actually only one dilemma: should they admit their failure of their Ukrainian adventure right now, or later, - but with a much greater loss of what is left of their image.
Shooting down a civilian plane i nothing new. The US Navy shot down 1988 a Iranian plane in the gulf and since her open words: "fuck Europe", by Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, Europe has learned that the U.S. ha no intention to learn from its mistakes. We mut get used to the fact that this and any future U.S. administration will continue banging their heads against the wall. Clearly: in over 80 years, since WWII all US governments haven't realized that time is an essential factor in conflicts, - the more time passes, the more the resistance will grow. The best option to learn the lesson was the US fiasco in Vietnam and because no criminal charges where pressed for those responsible for the invasion of Iraq today these self styled humanitarian warriors are leaving even Libya. What is left to rot in books of history but no condemnation or better criminal charges.
Enough of good news and now a look on a bitter reality and the background why Ukraine has become NATO's new foundling. I promise not to go into all the broken promises, made by Bush senior and other NATO members to the then Russian President Mihkael Gorbachev as they promised his not to enlarge NATO into any former Warsaw Pact Member-state. This Russian President giving genuinely hope for a nuke free world and made the initial step to end the "cold war". Maybe this is why he got ousted and replaced by an alcoholic, who allowed the IMF to cause havoc in the CIS..., I will just focus on the current situation in Ukraine and what the real reason is why NATO is acting like a army for private US corporations. who what to grab the assets of the industrially advanced Eastern regions in Ukraine.
Repeating the Iraq spin-madness again.
The main problem of the current US government is that there is no opposition and common sense. There is no reasoning or reflections of the past, only the dictatorship of corporate interested and therefore the future out-look for 2016 is very, very scary... Here the failures of the attempts to solve the crisis in Ukraine during the riots in Kiev month ago (in the spring) by the Foreign Ministers, Fabius, Sikorski and Steinmeier to the recent alleged "agreements" between Poroshenko, Putin and Hollande are showing a very clear pattern: sending the Europeans into a predictable disaster while the Nuland and US spin doctors are pulling the strings in the background.
Nothing was more logic then the occurrence of a "catastrophy", the downing of a Malaysian air-liner. Then OSCE is send to find "evidences" which can be used to invent ever more sanctions against Russia. Do you remember: It was the OSCE that "found evidences", like Racak in Kosovo. It where members of the KLA who massacred a few Askahli (Albanian speaking for Roma), only to say the Serbian army comitted a massacre on Albanians. This KLA leaders today have successfully established a stasi-like statehood in Pristina over Kosovo
Now while the Ukraine crisis has become a war, dangerousl enough to leave any common sense out of discusions to solve the conflict. Here we all can see crystal clear that any European attempt to find a solution will be thwarted by the Ukrainian president and his master in Washington. Not only since the "Fuck Europe" by Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. What other strong evidence is needed to realize that the European states need urgently to recognize that the script for what will result in Ukraine into an open war with neighbors, is located in Washington and not in any European capital. European politics are increasingly dominated by Washington with the help of their puddles in Downing-street.
The developments in Ukraine where drowning completely in anticipation for the final game during the Football World Cup. Nothing you could find in the main-stream media about the fact that from Ukrainian army positions Russian territory came several times under fire. Coincidence? No! this neglections are deliberately! What you can learn from the reactions in Kiev is simply that the local rulers could care less for such incidents. The junta in Kiew does not have to worry about consequences anyway. This is ensured by others, e.g. not at least by the Official NATO Secretary General Rasmussen who is slandering but still in office and journalists.
For weeks NATO's Rasmussen has asked the Russian to withdraw its troops from the Russian side of the Ukrainian-Russian border. Now we know why he made this call. In a time in which one half of Europe is on vacation and another part is sitting on their couch to watch football, the fuse between Ukraine and Russia was burning. Don't forget: At the beginning, with the mass murder on the Maidan Square in Kiev, this fuse was placed deliberately for something bigger. Downing a civilian air-plane is a good event to pour oil on the fire, and what is more convinent then one of Malaysia Airways.
We should also not forget, another Malaysia Airways plane, the same type, a Boeing 777-200, strangely disappeared 4 month ago over the Indian ocean. And till today we don't know nothing... How come? Some clever remarks made by Dr Leivesley where never picked up. She runs her own company, training businesses and governments to counter terrorist attacks. She said she believes a framework of malicious codes, triggered by a mobile phone, would have been able to override the aircraft’s security software (Sunday Express). That such technical manipulations are not a conspiracy theory is known to many pilots. What maintenance work have been done in Shipol before the plane took of.
However it is looking like our beloved limitless compliant "quality press" deliberately refuses to follow up on who actually was responsible for the mass murder on the Maidan square. They begun to believe their guessing. I think it is time that each journalist and each think-tank pundit, should be held be responsible for what defamation and slander he is distributing. Not the media house. If journalist are responsible for what they say, they can not hide behind media organizations. Their argument to be responsible to inform the people is just shallow rubbish. They never wanted to go into this investigation. The murder was enough to report about. In the past we have had sources like Wiki-Leaks who was shinning a light on the massacre on journalists and civilians in Baghdad during the US occupation of Iraq. Today, it is certain that Western action is a question of expediency. This is commonly called "moral depravity" while the whistle-blower are being to rot in their obscure exiles like embassies and hotels, till the are suddenly sick or disapear...
How little is left of this once so proud "Western community of values" can be seen at who in Kiev enjoys general support from the West. Who wonders why Vice Presidents Biden is so eager "solving" the Ukraine crisis may think this would be a conspiracy theory or a tale from the rulers in "Saudistan", but then, why was Joe Biden son Hunter appointed as head of legal affairs at Ukraine’s largest private gas & oil producer? In this clientle- and buddy-style politic it is easier to understand the backgrounds of artificially created crisis but has nothing to do with politic for people. It is only politic, crafted for corporations who donate more cash for the next elections.
Ukraine seems to be the blueprint for future action and will be very relevant for Europe's destiny in the future. You must be blind, an ignorant or a fascist if you agree to the procedures on how this Ukrainian oligarch, muted president, Poroshenko, is treading the people in the East of the country. He can't pay his army because his country is bankrupt, but he is drafting ever more young people. Funny that Biden and Kerry seem to think this arbitrarily bombing of civilians of East-Ukrainian towns and villages has anything to do with solving problems. Others where dragged to DenHaag for their bombing of civilian settlements as it is considered a war crime. That most journalists do not pick up on this Milosevic-style killings is either silence of complicantcy with coorportations or intellectual bankruptcy. Poroshenko is obviously having a war against its own people - with a "National Guard" that has been created from fascist groups, especially from western Ukraine and most of journalists reporting for media outlets based in NATO countries are under the thump of governmental spin-machines, called "think-tanks".
Sure history is not repeating itself hundred per cent, but what I learned in the Balkans was a clear pattern, namly that even first front-lines where completely the same as they where during WWII. There is no difference in todays Ukraine: The reason why the Nazi Waffen SS troops was once so successful in Ukraine was only possible due to the support and help of Ukrainian fascists. The Waffen SS, inflicted an unimaginable misery over the people in eastern Ukraine. Now today exactly these forces are coming back, and this for several month now. To think that in 3 generations the memory of East Ukrainians has depleted would be naive. They clearly remember that even before the German invasion, the Nachtigall and Roland battalions were set up and trained as Ukrainian battalions in the Wehrmacht, and were part of the initial invading force.
Europe should be ashamed to allow these characters in Kiev to receive even a glimmer of understanding. To say it with Obamas most used slogan: "make no mistake" the American-Kiev-Ukrainian goal of this exercise is to open even a war with Russia in order to ultimately be able to use the Kiev- Ukraine-Junta as a bulwark! Not only against Russia, these strategic changes will effect all CIS member states. Given the bankrupt Ukraine it seems to be easy to make the Ukraine subservient to the USA. Then, as a consequence there will be a complete bolt-corridor from the Baltic states over Poland and Ukraine to the Black Sea to isolate Russia for the benefit of a total U.S. control. A long very well know American goal, that has already been activated at least once at the NATO summit in Riga in 2006. At that time this American advance failed due to the resistance of Europeans. The next NATO summit in a few weeks will bring the new situation back on the agenda!
This time Washington has turned the screws against the insubordinate Europeans to open the Pandora box completely by simply gaining total control over the Ukraine without the Europeans with the help of the propaganda of the mainstream media. The next steps will be implemented in the known dramatic fashion by two substantive goals: First, Washington throws Russia out of Europe (using their obedient media to manipulate opinions). The second step follows automatically: getting Western Europe under its complete control. Good economic relations between Russia and Germany will even encourage the US to go for this goal even faster. So it is really about "Fuck Europe"!
The last step will be when Washington isolates Russia till Moscow crawls on the floor and provides Russian natural gas and oil to be under American coporate control. This have had been almost the case in the best times of Yukos. Ironically the same European court which was reaching today its funny verdict to fine Russia with 50 Billion in the Yukos case had 4 years ago confirmed that the seismic tax evasiontions of YUKOS to Russia and the imprisonment of Golonkovsky for tax evasion rightful. Given such contradictions in every days politics, it seem Madame Nuland has archived her "fuck Europe". The US energy conglomerates will soon have Europe completely under their thumb. If a Noble-Peace laureate, Barak Obama,can turn back the wheel into a Cold-War scenario, the only thing that's left for Europe's political responsible is to worry about the next "s"elected US president in 2016, - , the next will lift the sanction and Halliburton is opening an office in Moscow and the next president will not only have to cover up a mountain debt of 18 Trillion, but +/- 20 Trillion in 2016.
In Uzes The bulls Were Loose...
The running of the Bulls
At a "Bull Run" (also bull race; Spanish: encierro = inclusion, inclusion) young bulls are being driven through a city or village, In the past this was usually leading to the bullring. Today it's more of a show celebrated each year, especially in the South of France.
For the security of the spectators, the sides of streets are set up with barricades so the bulls cannot go astray into the crowd.
The Running of the Bulls is a tradition which originates from the Middle Ages as the butcher boys where chasing the cattle to the cattle market. These bull runs also provided the idea for one of the most evocative descriptions of the bull run and can be found in Ernest Hemingway's novel "Fiesta".
Opponents of the Bull Run complain that the animals suffer great anxiety, panic and pain caused by blows, falls and fueled atmosphere at the "Encierro". I personally found the riders and the guys which are these days sitting on a truck quite gentle and caring for the bulls.
