The Eurofun continues. Ralph Peters writes:

Several years ago, in Verona, I made the mistake of speaking German to a companion as we entered a restaurant. The manager swiftly informed us that there were no more tables. When I expressed my regret in broken Italian and English, his expression changed entirely. After asking if I was American, he apologized and seated us at a perfect table, then sent over a special wine for us to try.

Germany is fighting back with state-of-the-art topless weaponry. When will the UN intervene?

If that "article" (read: load of crap opinion-piece) is considered to be some insight into modern euro-politics, then Tim, try a lot harder. What utter rubbish.

That'll teach those Italians a lesson, planting topless German babes outside of their embassy and all. Those Krauts really play diplomatic hardball.

Why didn't they stage a real typical German beach scene, like the ones we see at Pattaya and Bali: fat balding 60-year old German men cavorting with local underage girls (or boys), gross topless hausfraus with sagging tits flopping all over the beach, shouting at the natives in gutter English. Where is Allison Bronowski when we need her? Why, these people deserve to be bombed!

I think I shall hang an Italian flag and a portrait of Silvio in front of my home and wait for such a protest.

Right on Rob,
Lets just add the fat French, Aussie, American, British and all other fat peoples of the world to that list. I've lived in Bangkok, travelled to Pattaya alot so I know what you're talking about. I just don't appreciate the German bashing much.

Playing dirty, eh. Well the English invented gamesmanship.

So, unleash a few page three girls and a few Ozzie shielas. I say, the two anglos - no, make it three,(the Californian bombshells don't forget), can turn back this new assault by the Wermacht, and roll all the way into Berlin in 3days.

The Wermacht must be crying crocodile tears these days: Rommel and his Africa Corp, Guderain, Blucher, to name a few of the greats and their men, all gone.They have to settle for bazookas of the nippled kind.And , they still lose.

It took the Germans to come up with the idea first! Hang on, can we add some hotty Japanese and Thai girlies? Let's not be racist. There's so many decent, young, stacked, ladies just bursting out of tight tees dying to join a Coalition of the Well Built to take a peace keeping role vis a vis Italy V's Germany we should include them all.
God that was wordy.

The art of warfare, Jake, isn't who invents weaponry , tactics and strategy best, but who latches onto the implications first and wields them to great effect first.

Your diplomatic effort to multiply the allied forces, however, as this Filed Marshall's approval. When can they be mobilized.

I propose a false vanguard: those who don't measure- the pinko communards, this will catch Hun off guard; ha ha, they will say, rank amatuers they shall say. Below the ridge, however awaits the vanguard, with paratroopers to their rear, and a flank spearing in from the North West - Dunkirk shall be reversed.Hmmn: recruiting booths open tomorrow, trainging camp the following week.

Veterans required for training staff.

Your country needs you, now!

Forget the UN - what about the EU's anti-sexism guidelines?

Maybe a similar style of protest should be done when Iran next cracks (pun not intended) down on protestors.

Erk, Andjam, into the ranks have to be admited the bazookaless sex, as in the N.S.W. police force? Hand an advantage to the other side like that ? Not to offend Andjam,but could you please join German staff and help them loose battle and war?

I'm going to insult German politicians until I get a bunch of topless German girls outside my house.

The Italian response is likely to involve rude hand gestures. And maybe a beer or two, and some sunblock.

"'Allo, my name-a ees Giorgio..."
