Picasso Heir Requests Immediate Close-Down of Katterbach Airbase (tags)
A Madrid-based lawyer ordered by the heir of the 20th century master painter Picasso has requested the immediate close-down of the American airbase from which the war crimes his grandfather once documented in his most widely known painting had originated. The artwork named “Guernica” after a Spanish city carpet-bombed in the Civil War of the 1930s documents the results of the air raid in the artist’s unique style of greyish black-and-white abstraction avoiding any direct view of blood, but still giving most viewers a striking impression of the suffering imposed by the appearance of the tactic in war theatres around the globe. Katterbach airbase had been set up by the Nazis, and nearly a century after their defeat still is an American aggression hub.

Paul Wolfowitz’s Heart of Darkness (tags)
Now, War Hawks within the Bush-Cheney Gang are planning a First-Strike against Iran. It may come just before the Nov. midterm elections. The Neocon Paul Wolfowitz concocted the notion of a Pre-emptive War. His target, in 2003, was Iraq. Every time I hear Wolfowitz’s name mentioned, I curse him for all the deaths and suffering that his scheme has caused to the peoples of that unfortunate country, our brave troops and to our dwindling treasury.
