Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Madrid Bombings
So what? One of the suspects has lived in Germany, okay, that I understand.
But what wasit? Was this a terror attac from some sypathisants or was it an attac ordered by Al Quaeda - whoever this is by now?
I don't get it and from what the BBC writes, people don't know yet, what it was.
If it was "just" a sympathisant, this doesn't make it better for the families of the victims, but I'd say it has a totally different quality than if it was ordered from Al Quaeda directly.
I don't think, "we all" are threatened from terrorists all over, neither in Germany nor in Europe. We're not more threatened than we were ten years ago, but we perceive it that way because the coverage is way better it was ten years before.
I don't think "we all" should have a higher terror alert now, because it has hit the USA at 9-11.
There have been terror acts all the years before and when one terror group came out, sometimes sypathisants came after and also comitted attacs.

So, what is the quality of the recent attacs which are counted as belonging to Al Quaeda? Are they thought out by some kind of global Islaimistic Terror ThinkTank? Are there people meeting at mosques, thinking what can be done where?
As folks say: Terrorists don't want many people to die, all they want is many people to watch. I guess the problem is, that most people just watch when many people die.
