A New Year…

I wanted to post this 12 days ago, but I think it is still worth it.

New Year’s Eve 2015: I was working in Munich, Germany, near the main train station “Hauptbahnhof” where Police forces evacuated two railways stations and urged the public to stay away from large crowds, amid an imminent threat from IS terrorists. It was a bit uneasy, because the venue I`ve been was only 5 minutes away by foot…

Police said that forces from the whole of southern Bavaria had been brought into the city for the public’s safety after receiving intelligence that between five and seven suspected terrorists, including two suicide bombers, had been planning an attack.

Perhaps you have already seen this in the news and checked out the dope looking SWAT guys, but here is a headline from Munich`s newspaper Abendzeitung the next day:

While walking by and reading the headline I was a bit amused, because the sarcastic title roughly translates “Terror alarm on New Year`s Eve – WHAT A GOOD START“.

Thinking about all Geardos and Airsoft players standing in front of the newspaper and checking out the picture, I think it is not a bad start at all! πŸ˜‰

When was the last time I saw such cool looking German SF forces rockin the headlines? 😎
