Such a calm atmosphere.Lovely. !!L&F!! But very deceitful. Why could Putin not go the Scotland's way of plebiscitary decision or the way of peaceful divorce like in Czecho-Slowakia?? Longside the Iron Curtain I had for half a century every year, idyllic sceneries during the Cold War. Bavarian citizens could read in the newspaper that in 1979 we stood 4 times only 7 minutes before outbreak of a nuclear war, because the systems escalated and answered each other. Why does Putin order his boys to infiltrate territories of souvereign states? Why are the boys not allowed to use their mobiles? OECD-principles were developed during 25 years to avoid hostile reactions - why now neglected by Putin? He is talking about his vision of Nowa Russia and orders Russian tourists to the Crimea coasts. Once upon a time German tourists were sent to the idyllic Baltic coasts while Hitler prepared his war by visions of Blut und Boden. Idyllic pictures may have some value. In Panoramio as well. But only if they are interpreted with the context of the time, when they were made. Dear Edward, I deeply apologize that I use your lovely picture to explain that there is no unpolitical picture. Panoramio may not be a format to support warlords and tourist guides to find paths for idyllic photoshootings between battlefields and failing states. All my best friendly greetings to you, all my best friendly wishes to you, your family and your country! Kind regards, Hans
