"Autumn's Violins"

"The long sobs of autumn's violins wound my heart with a monotonous languor."

Aside from being a poem of sorts by Frenchy la femme Verlaine, this delightful little ditty was used as code talk when Great Britain, Canada and Great Satan (along with a mix of free French and free Polish cats) decided to do it to it and liberate the crown jewel of 3rd Reich's Reich.

The D Day invasion relied on French Resistance' to act out in a paramilitary way -- sabotaging worthy booty like rail lines, telephone, telegraph lines and bushwacking unsuspecting Deutsch combatty units enroute to the invasion site.

One such Resistance activity occurred just 10km from Oradour sur Glane. On June 7, partisans blew up a railway bridge at Saint-Junien in an attempt to slow the movement of the 2nd Waffen SS 'Das Reich' Panzer Division (one of the most powerful units at the time Germany possessed) toward the front.

Several Deutsch Truppen were killed and an officer was taken prisoner in another local Resistance action.

Wicked Germans had a COIN tactic of their own.

"On June 10, 1944, the SS occupied the town. The entire population of the town was rounded up. Men were separated from women and children. The women and children were herded into a church. The men were locked in 5 garages and barns, where they were shot. The buildings were then torched.

"The church with 400 women and children locked inside was also razed to the ground. The SS reported 548 "enemy" killed, with one SS dead and one "wounded".

"Post-war investigators estimated 393 residents of the town, 167 people from the surrounding countryside, 33 people from Limoges and 55 from other areas were killed during this rampage. "

Those people never had a chance.

By any definition -- the deliberate targeting of civilians is a war crime.

Contrast that event from way back in the last millennium to 3 events in just the last few days:

Desperate for relief (or maybe just enjoying the carnage of kids and easy, evil women spilling their life blood in a massive vehicular born incineration device) Talibani fan boys reminded the Land of the Pure (and everybody else) that tolerating intolerant, time traveling tribalistic misogynists bears certain costs:

"While the domestic environment was as it was and the US Coalition forces were battling Al Qaeda/Taliban in the Afghan countryside, four serious accusations were hurled at Pakistan:

  1. All the terrorist activity in Afghanistan had its base in Pakistan
  2. All the freedom struggle in Indian Held Kashmir was Cross Border Terrorism from Pakistan
  3. All nuclear proliferation in the world had its source in Pakistan
  4. Pakistan is an intolerant militant extremist society"

Over 100 innocent civilians killed in a market place - specifically where all the girls shops were.

Across the Durand Line, Talibani fanboys, chased out of Iraq (perhaps those magical Chechens, nicht war?) stormed UN's civie apartment complex to torment and murder foreign humanitarians who are over there to help.

Two connected incidents of Great Satan's blood sworn enemies, collectively known as 'Taliban' -- plotting, prepping and pursuing the horrific goal of killing civilians.

No surprise.

OTOH (on the other hand for the unsavvy), news that UN's 'Special Rapper' (Yo! Lady Girl! We be gots it made -- breaking out the UN's attorney brigade) is seriously concerned about Great Satan's 'Drones Gone Wild!'

"The use of pilot-less drones by the United States to target militants in Pakistan and Afghanistan will be regarded as a breach of international law unless Washington can demonstrate that it follows the appropriate precautions and accountability mechanisms"

These three events -- and hoping PAK Army will - you know -- actually do their gig for once -- not to mention 44's ditherous maximus (despite any 'upsides') -- are just like the fiddles of fall:

"...a monotonous languor"
