It’s all about bunkers, bombs & people...
In Kiel’s "Flandernbunker" is an art project that has the goal teaching history for peace promotion and international understanding.
Technically speaking: a former anti-aircraft bunker. The amazing two meter thick concrete walls give an idea and impression of war constructions.
There are year-round exhibitions in the “Flanders Bunker” related to First and Second World War, as well as to the period of National Socialism. Sometimes living contemporary witnesses tell about their experiences. In the end, references to the present shall be established.
Witnesses of wars, also contemporary witnesses, are giving in this art project their accounts under the slogan: "daring memories”. Their experiences during wars should bring the reality of that time closer and serve as a reminder to help avoid repetition.

Making the most of the Med-yachting season is pretty cumbersome this year. Many photo documentations & works, especially in the Italian shipyards are still waiting for completion. At least we finished all charter yachts for the 2020/2021 season in the Caribbean today in St. Tropez with the last brochure & website photo session.
For all of us it hasn’t been the big and exciting Med season we were all hoping for, but at least we are enjoying a form of season now – it’s definitely better than nothing given where we were a few months ago.
After Monaco Yachtshow being canceled at least We can still look forward to Cannes Yachting Festival this year, however, with show organisers reiterating earlier this month that the show will go ahead as planned from the 8th to 13th September.
Another reminder to owners, captains and crew reading this: Please remember that as of last month French laws came into effect which stipulate that wildlife - most notably posidonia/seagrass - must not be damaged due to boating activities.
Propaganda and counter-propaganda have the same root and serve the purpose of deliberate stupefaction. Counter-propaganda, however, is trickier: the intention is to provoke reactions in order to generate information. Otherwise I cannot understand this conjecture essay.
The only useful thing about such disinformation is that the latent anti-Semitism everywhere becomes really visible in its various layers in all societies
Ok, let's assume that there was no knowledge that nitro ammonium was stored there. Let's assume that there was no known storage of nitro ammonia. Wouldn't that be the greater improbability? And then, even if it was known, what difference would it make?
Would Israel's leadership want to provoke a war? If so, what allies of Israel would / could still be willing to support Israel without not being suspected of being a supporter of crime? Is His Untouchable Sovereignty so deep in the shit that he now has to organise a Masada? No, he is not! He has his "base". Consisting on what sort of individuals?
I am highly skeptical that such assumptions based on “highly informed sources”. Sure, they will become commonplace now since for 2 decades now politician talk about a “high degree of certainties”, highly likely" and "unalterable certainty”.
If this is possible why is it not similarly likely that the little Saudi trickster wants to settle a score because his tricky business with Syria didn't work out and Saudi investors with their Lebanese projects (Hariri) saw their investment gambled away by a Lebanese government which is composed almost entirely of war criminals. Lebanese youth had been trying for months to free themselves from these warlords running the entire country into the ground…
The reality is: speculating is difficult since we are in the early phases of the downturn into a 9/11 syndrome, Covid syndrome, or to stay in Lebanon, Hariri syndrome. Events can only be assessed retrospectively. I find it absurd that every time something mysterious happens, funny people try to use conspiracy drums to find the culprits in Israel.
It seems patently obvious to anyone who actually thinks about these issues and still we as humanity are now at a critical juncture in history. But the world has postponed, indefinitely, dealing decisively with the challenges of investigation of where the virus really came from, which caused the two sky-scraper to fall apart, was there a Russia Gate. Anyone who questions the present course is held up to ridicule as a professional pessimist, or worse. Nothing is done, and we ignore reality.
