Stazi Coal Miners After the Fall of the Wall : Berlin 1989

Stazi Coal Miners After the Fall of the Wall : Berlin 1989


I was woken at 6 AM by my alarm… Not enough sleep as usual .. The radio was playing … well not exactly the radio.. But sounds like radio…. the digital live streamed audio service of the BBC World Service … ‘bombing of a school in Nigeria’.. was the first thing I heard…. ‘suicide bombing of a school’ .. Oh no .. who could bomb a school ? …who could even make a pretense that this was somehow a necessary part of God’s plan… and sacrifice their own life to that disgusting action…it’s just unthinkable and totalky vile ….it really ought to be regarded by all religious people as sacrelidge to say: ‘ I know what God wants’ …especially if you then kill others as part of your own thought process and action … an action that you callously attribute to the wishes of God .. especially if you blow yourself up in a school killing 47.. You no doubt regard your actions as those of a martyr and yet all you have done is disgustingly kill children and families in the name of a new type of a God invented over the last 20 years…. one that cares nothing for children and innocents one that just wants disgusting acts of slaughter and suicide… i sink back into my pillow….. woooow….. first thing vileness …

The news rattles on with information … I shower and packed up my gear to roll…

‘The Berlin Wall fell 25 years ago to the day….’

I was there as people from the East made their first amazing steps into the West… Wow I must be getting old..

Rush rush traffic . Rental car return… Wheels up Detroit… .the white noise of flying .. i am tired.. Bam … slam down hard wheels down . .. wakes me with a start … :’ Ladies and gentlemen welcome to New York City …If you can make it here you can make it any where’ Too true … I had better wake up and get rolling….

Cheers Jez XXXX

PS… This picture above is of the East German Stazi…. The secret police of the repressive communist state … days after the collapse of the wall… we found these guys re-deployed to the lowly task of mining for brown coal … effectively sent to Siberia …. they had gone from being respected feared and all powerful … to being lowly and openly despised overnight :-/

Sorry… This post is written on my phone on the subway traveling from the airport … so consequently even more badly written than the rest of my incredibly high brow and eloquent prose …. hehehehe :-)))

  • All so they can go to heaven and have 72 virgins at their beck and call. I would like see their faces when they get to the afterlife (if there is one) and discover they’ve been fed a line and the only thing waiting for them is a bed of hot coals to torture them eternally in retribution for the hell they’ve created down here.

  • That always seems a slightly tacky motivation …. the 72 virgins thing? I mean if u r driven by the desire to have sex with a pile of women why not just adjust your life to make that possible…. I mean if u do not live the life of an extremist it might be possible to achieve that or a similar tacky objective ….. you would not have to die you would not have to kill children …. if u r desperate to have sex well why not get out there live an ordinary life and have some sex …. the pathetic motivation jazzed up to be a holy warriors act if were not so disgusting, tragic and horrific in its outcome it would be totally pathetic and laughable.Cheers mate Jez XXXX

  • Got to agree with both of you Guys, beyond belief, don`t believe any body could give me a reason that would justify this act… Justanother bloody depressing News story/start to the day..Onthis day as well..Remembering people who gave everything to make the world a better(safer?)place… I remember now why most the time I dont watch the bloody news!! Of course I know that wont stop these things happening…Stay Safe Bro xx

  • Yes, some days news seems a little depressing still its best to know whats join on …… but a suicide bombing of a school assembly where a youthful bomber stands amongst the children before blowing himself up …. man that is a disgusting thing to hear about …. just totally vile …. i mean how could that ever be anything but the most venal slaughter driven by the most base and vile hatreds……. woooow don’t get me goin again….And you are right the first world war 11th hour of the 11th day ……. again a pretty terrible history to dwell upon and I’m not completely sure all of that was exactly justified ….. at least the second world war is more clearly fought against the despicable ideology of Nazism …..a properly worthy cause to join the fight against.

    Ah…. Rock and Roll …… matey ……. we need some…… hope all is good in Brum……….
