    @Jennifer:

    I say that because it really didn’t matter if you lived in north, central (west) or southern Germany as long as it wasn’t eastern Germany - right?

    It was not NATO and warsaw pact (because those did not exist at that time) but you are correct if you replace that by “western allies” and “USSR”, which i assume is what you meant.
    Can you explain to my why it was impossible for you to write these names correctly?

    Because that’s what it turned out to be after the war. Not right after, but rather before the Union of Soviet Socialists Republic collapsed, it was really more NATO vs Warsaw then Western Allies vs Russia. Though, you are correct, in 1946 it was the western Allies controlling the west and Russia controlling the east.



  • Still, that does not explain why you chose that era to use the names from. It was not the correct time (as during the NATO and Pact times the Germanies were “independent” nations), and not the current time (as there is noWarsaw Pact anymore).
    Actually, “it turned out after the war that all of it was NATO” …
    What was the reason to use the intermediate era and thus historically misleading names?



  • Back to the Topic.

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned yet, but did anyone here about Democrat Representative of Louisiana William Jefferson used the National Guard to salvage some of his property while many were holding on for dear life?

    Louisiana needs a huge government shake up - starting with the removal of the governor and the mayor of New Orleans, either through impeachment or some sort of a recall process.

    I thought it was occupied until the wall fell in the 80’s/90’s?
