They shoot with demonstrators!
As if it wasn’t bad enough what the military regime in Myanmar/Burma (now what’s the name?) is doing – and not just during the current demonstrations –, now the ZDFtext reports about shooting with demonstrators:
Translation: “They reportedly have beaten and shot with demonstrators again. They say it was warning shots.”
They must have quite big cannons… and how does this work, a warning shot of demonstrators – are they shot only slowly or a low height so they don’t die when falling back down?
Alright, it may be just a typo – one little letter in the German text so it would read “…have beaten and shot at…” Bad enough.

“We argued enough, we should make it now.”
Interior minister Wolfgang Schäuble about an online search law (source: Handelsblatt/ap; my translation)
What?!? An argument, lots of controversy, no consent – so push it through quickly? What the hell came over him now? [BTW: Is the devil blogging now, too? ]
Hey, basically, I don’t mind if the computers of acute suspects are being searched – within the same scope, of course, that applies to wiretapping phones and similar actions now, i.e. on a case-by-case basis and verified and ordered by courts. Or else – in the extreme case – we’ll even have to look for a new anthem, because there may be not much left of “unity and justice and freedom,” which didn’t appear from nowhere, by the way.
Quote of the Day (4)
What the world needs is more nazis
Like it needs a hole in the head
Your future is not safe at all
’til this disease is dead
We gotta stop those fucking nazis
(Roger Taylor, “Nazis 1994”)
On August 13…
In the war of the worlds between east and west, the construction of the wall began, which soon only the birds could easily cross…
