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.

Hostages
Sorry, but this Hostage-taking in Iraq is a new habit, I have no understanding for- Once sources report about US soldiers taking a wife and a daughter from some guy into hostage and now it's reported that some russians were taked as hostages in Iraq.
What should it help?
I mean, if we assume there is some central organizing behind all Iraqi actions against this coalition, hostages just "help" - as if ever - as cry for help or as method to have the world news perk up.

But we all know what is happening in Irq - more or less. And the world knows about a war in Iraq and who does it for what, so for what should this hostage thing be good? No country with a pride would pay for some inhibitants, after the third or fourth incident of this kind, even the interest of the media decreaes enormously.

So the "typical aim" or hostage-taking won't help anyone a thing and for everything else this method is not practicable. Why don't they just leave it that way?
