About the wall, this is what you should know by a not renegate DDR citizen, the wall was mainly built for economic reasons to avoid pillage by the FDR and smarties.
This author recognizes 150 people died trying to cross the wall, which after all was a border, and thus illegal to cross it without authorization, recall there was no Schengen space then and there was a declared Cold War amongst the East and the West, and that East Berlin was a swarm of spies from all over the word, especially NATO countries, taking into account all this, 150 people seems to me even way too few...
Way more people died victim of NATO´s terrorist Gladio Network and of that nobody talks, nor have been trials to judge the criminals...

25 years without the anti-fascist Berlin Wall

You can translate it with an online translator. He explains way too better than me the issue of the smuggling and how some DDR citizens worked in FDR but lived in DDR, taking advanatge of the whole social welfare state, but no paying taxes in DDR, which equated to fraude, parasitizing, and evasion of capitals. This these amongst the main reasons to build the wall, not to avoid people going into the FDR. In fact, it was the other way around, that some people moved to live in the DDR. After the construction of the wall, the economy of the DDR started flourishing, once stopped the drainning by the FDR.

Btw, how in the Earth are you now calling me "old man"?

Finally, precisely because every spook reads this stuff, I will abstain of providing any personal data here, even to such friendly dude like you. Sorry to dissapoint.

Have you read already the whole paper?
Then you are not so slow...reading Spanish

We agree about the DDR old man. ("old man" is a comradenshaft sort of term, just a friendly phrase. No offense intended.

I assume you are a German. I will say I visited Frankfort and Marburg long ago, not too long after the war. My simple German comes from my father's know.

I cannot say that my reading of the Spanish was precise...I "scanned" for cognates from chemistry and Latin and my childish "mexican spanish" and focused on the overall meaning. I would not like to take an examination, yet...

I remember the affair...and that there was a "smell".

One can generally see the flaw in a set scene, the misc en scene gives away the lie. But I was busy with making a living...

binary mechanism are quite consistent with my simple chemistry. Really nasty too.

I will say later old man.

It would be a pity if either you or any other here would get without understanding the last words of Andreas Faber-Kaiser, as conclusion of his research, the nitty-gritty of the whole issue, very important:

I endorse these considerations because it is observed - when all this matter is analyzed in detail - that the pact of silence that is evident here can only be justified by the extreme gravity of what actually happened. For this, it is worth remembering that organophosphates are at the base of modern chemical weapons, as well as remembering why the chemical disarmament agreement between the United States and the Soviet Union was being delayed: the creation of the binary chemical weapon makes impossible any type of international control, because its production can be secretly organized by incorporating it into any private chemical company. It involves experimentation with new types of chemical agents in the herbicide industry, among others, with the possibility of avoiding inspections in units and companies that belong to private or multinational companies. It should be noted that Nemacur and Oftanol are products of the multinational Bayer. Therefore, when judging what happened in Spain with the toxic syndrome, it is important to keep in mind that the multinational private chemical industry offers the only possibility of unpunished testing in the event of an international agreement to suspend experimentation and storage of chemical weapons.

Yes. I could understand that quite clearly.

It also was implied by the actions themselves.

Is good that you put up translation. Everyone ought to know.

And today? Today, I think, we are far down that road...

g'nite om

I read the lie of the rape (seed oil) more carefully this morning, with the aid of machine translation. I want to think about it more.


see inter alia "The long-suppressed official report on US biowarfare in North Korea" tinyurl[dt]com/y9fwjwln The full report can be found at that locus. Full report 764 pages.

The full report says that the US began a policy of industrial manufacture of bio/chem war in 1941, and began using these methods against Korea and China 01 January 1952.

I have not been able to find any credible claim that this Policy ended.

Indeed, given the Ft Detrick shut down last July...and Wuhan...well.

Later old man. time to get out and do real work.
Enjoy the germwar paper.
