The week Germany would have a reason to grieve.
Was it something to see or hear in the media?
At February 13-14 1945, Dresden was razed in a bomb inferno.
The city was populated by 1.2 million people.
Parsifal, Feb 16, 2013
Dresden had no strategic war industry, not even military was stationed there.
The German Air Force had even removed their fleet stationed; since a 'gentlemen's agreement' Dresden declared an open city.
A city that was full of frightened refugees, wounded seeking for recovery, so with the most vulnerable of society.
Traumatized people who escaped the horrors of the befalling Soviet army.
Houses were crowded with refugees and the streets, despite the cold, became an 'inhabited' zone.
It was carnival time, young 'bouncy Mariechen’s' danced through the streets to bring a little joy among the people.
Everybody was looking for protection in the Elbe City, in order to catch some normality for a moment.
Even a circus that night brought some joy to the people for an hour or so.
The kids were thrilled.
"....Curtis LeMay ordered the bombers to fly lower (4,500–8,000 ft, 1,400–2,400 m) and drop incendiary bombs to burn Japan's vulnerable wood-and-paper buildings. The first such raid was in February 1945 when 174 B-29s destroyed around one square mile (3 square KM) of Tokyo. The next month, 334 B-29s took off to raid on the night of 9–10 March ("Operation Meetinghouse"), with 279 of them dropping around 1,700 tons of bombs. Fourteen B-29s were lost. Approximately 16 square miles (41 km2) of the city were destroyed and some 100,000 people are estimated to have died in the resulting firestorm, more immediate deaths than either of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The US Strategic Bombing Survey later estimated that nearly 88,000 people died in this one raid, 41,000 were injured, and over a million residents lost their homes. The Tokyo Fire Department estimated a higher toll: 97,000 killed and 125,000 wounded. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department established a figure of 124,711 casualties including both killed and wounded and 286,358 buildings and homes destroyed. Richard Rhodes, historian, put deaths at over 100,000, injuries at a million and homeless residents at a million.
These casualty and damage figures could be low; Mark Selden wrote in Japan Focus:
"The figure of roughly 100,000 deaths, provided by Japanese and American authorities, both of whom may have had reasons of their own for minimizing the death toll, seems to me arguably low in light of population density, wind conditions, and survivors' accounts. With an average of 103,000 inhabitants per square mile (396 people per hectare) and peak levels as high as 135,000 per square mile (521 people per hectare), the highest density of any industrial city in the world, and with firefighting measures ludicrously inadequate to the task, 15.8 square miles (41 km2) of Tokyo were destroyed on a night when fierce winds whipped the flames and walls of fire blocked tens of thousands fleeing for their lives. An estimated 1.5 million people lived in the burned out areas.""

Italian lawyer Alfonso Luigi Marra has requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the secretive Bilderberg Group for criminal activity, questioning whether the elitist organizations 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti (pictured right) as Prime Minister of Italy.
by Paul Joseph Watson
The Bilderberg Group is an annual confab of around 120 of the most influential power brokers on the planet from the world of politics, business, banking, academia, media, and even royalty. Mainstream press reports routinely downplay the significance of the meeting despite the fact that it has proven its kingmaker status on numerous occasions in the past and is clearly not just a talking shop, as some have characterized Bilderberg.
Alfonso Luigi Marra
Marras full request that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate Bilderberg, a translation of which is posted here (original version in Italian here), identifies the organization as a secret world government seeking to destabilize democracies through carnage, that has relied on institutional collusion to keep its agenda largely secret.
Marra cites article 18 of the Italian Constitution, which explicitly bans secret societies from engaging in political activities.
Labeling the group a unique, illegal brotherhood of elitists who consider themselves to be above the law, Marra points the finger at Bilderberg for engineering wars, economic collapses, and arming dictators, activities which, constitute an obvious, blatant violation, to say the least, of the articles of the Criminal Code.
Marra urges the Public Prosecutor to investigate Bilderberg for engaging in illegal activities, with particular reference to the legality of the conduct of Mario Monti as a member of Bilderberg, and an assessment of whether there are connections between some politicians who attended the 2011 Bilderberg meeting in St. Moritz and his appointment to the Presidency of the Council.
Mario Monti, a former international advisor for Goldman Sachs, the European Chairman of David Rockefellers Trilateral Commission and also a leading member of the Bilderberg Group, assumed office as Italian Prime Minister following the resignation of Silvio Berlusconi in November 2011.
Montis cabinet was entirely comprised of unelected bureaucrats, prompting charges that Monti was merely the latest of a growing list of ex-Goldman Sachs technocrats selected undemocratically to seize control of European economies.
Monti attended the 2011 Bilderberg meeting in St. Moritz, Switzerland, at which Luigi suggests a deal may have been struck to appoint Monti as Berlusconis successor. Since the conference took place in June, five months before Montis appointment as PM, if evidence of this was uncovered by the Public Prosecutor it would clearly indicate that underhanded scheming had secured the position for Monti.
There are innumerable other examples of how Bilderberg has influenced major global events ahead of time, picking Presidents and Prime Ministers on a regular basis with total contempt for the democratic process.
In 2009, Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon even bragged about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group.
The former Prime Minister of Belgium, Herman Van Rompuy, was picked for the role of European Union President just days after he attended a Bilderberg Group dinner meeting in November 2009.
In 2010, former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers. If this is the case, it would violate laws in numerous countries that forbid politicians from being influenced by foreign agents in secret.
During the 2011 meeting in St. Moritz, Dominique Baettig, a prominent member of Switzerlands largest political party, attempted to confront other Swiss politicians attending the secretive confab and called for a parliamentary investigation into the activities of the group.
A Global Media Release and Statement from The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
The historically unprecedented resignation of Joseph Ratzinger as Pope this week was compelled by an upcoming action by a European government to issue an arrest warrant against Ratzinger and a public lien against Vatican property and assets by Easter.
The ITCCS Central Office in Brussels is compelled by Pope Benedicts sudden abdication to disclose the following details:
1. On Friday, February 1, 2013, on the basis of evidence supplied by our affiliated Common Law Court of Justice (itccs.org), our Office concluded an agreement with representatives of a European nation and its courts to secure an arrest warrant against Joseph Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict, for crimes against humanity and ordering a criminal conspiracy.
2. This arrest warrant was to be delivered to the office of the Holy See in Rome on Friday, February 15, 2013. It allowed the nation in question to detain Ratzinger as a suspect in a crime if he entered its sovereign territory.
3. A diplomatic note was issued by the said nations government to the Vaticans Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, on Monday, February 4, 2013, informing Bertone of the impending arrest warrant and inviting his office to comply. No reply to this note was received from Cardinal Bertone or his office; but six days later, Pope Benedict resigned.
4. The agreement between our Tribunal and the said nation included a second provision to issue a commercial lien through that nations courts against the property and wealth of the Roman Catholic church commencing on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. This lien was to be accompanied by a public and global Easter Reclamation Campaign whereby Catholic church property was to be occupied and claimed by citizens as public assets forfeited under international law and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
5. It is the decision of our Tribunal and the said nations government to proceed with the arrest of Joseph Ratzinger upon his vacating the office of the Roman Pontiff on a charge of crimes against humanity and criminal conspiracy.
6. It is our further decision to proceed as well with the indictment and arrest of Joseph Ratzingers successor as Pope on the same charges; and to enforce the commercial lien and Easter Reclamation Campaign against the Roman Catholic church, as planned.
In closing, our Tribunal acknowledges that Pope Benedicts complicity in criminal activities of the Vatican Bank (IOR) was compelling his eventual dismissal by the highest officials of the Vatican. But according to our sources, Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone forced Joseph Ratzingers resignation immediately, and in direct response to the diplomatic note concerning the arrest warrant that was issued to him by the said nations government on February 4, 2013.
We call upon all citizens and governments to assist our efforts to legally and directly disestablish the Vatican, Inc. and arrest its chief officers and clergy who are complicit in crimes against humanity and the ongoing criminal conspiracy to aid and protect child torture and trafficking.
Further bulletins on the events of the Easter Reclamation Campaign will be issued by our Office this week.
