Firestorm: Stripes

The Team Yankee Global Campaign

Good evening. This is Sally Sparrow from BBC World News reporting from Leipzig.

Our American allies are move forward again, pushing towards Berlin, but as they move forward the enemy seeks to cut them off by a thrust linking Frankfurt and the Ruhr. Our forces are fighting for every inch of ground we are taking, but we cannot afford to let the enemy get their talons into our supply lines.

Every day we are reminded why we are here. Evidence of the Warsaw Pact oppression surrounds us and we see the real damage it has done to the civilians. Those who, against the odds, made their way through the Soviet lines have painted a dark and grim picture of life in eastern Germany. They remind us the very freedoms and rights we are fighting to protect.

Soviet Tanks attempt to cower the population of Essen

We are moving back to cover the fighting around Frankfurt. We have heard terrible tales of the devastation there. We hope that they are exaggerated, and that the troops there can hold on long enough that we can put a stop this terrible war. You would think that after two major wars, the world would be done with bloodshed and cruelty.

We are still here and we are still fighting the good fight.

This has been Sally Sparrows, BBC World News.

    We don’t plan on getting the Frankfurt inhabitants out, KK. They are a self-solving problem. In 30 days they will be dying or eating each other. The shells are to remind them to stay inside their cage. Good luck with the Frankfurt Airlift problem. And Hanover, and Leipzig, etc, etc. Of course, they can just surrender, and we will march them to the nearest railhead and send them back to the Soviet Union to help with the harvest and thus produce their own food. Since no food is being produced in Germany thanks to your invasion of Leipzig and now Brandenburg, it will be a long train trip.

    Humanitarian aid to civilian refugees is a military problem, Tovarische. Our solution is to send the refugees to the food. Yours is to send the food to the refugees. Which makes more sense?

    You’ll never get Frankfurters out by shelling them, BK! You have to boil or grill them! Don’t they teach you anything in Khrushchev’s Kitchens?

    Yes typical Soviet doctrine:
    – are the citizens hungry: feed them the Divisional Artillery
    – are the citizens resisting: feed them the Army Artillery
    – are the citizens disappointed: point them to the gulags in our workers paradise

  • bayankhan says:

    Frankfurt is starving, Comrade Kubikhan, As long as the citizens resist, we are not obligated to feed them, and thus see no reason to do more than shell the city.

  • Kubikhan says:

    Devastation in Frankfurt? Nah, children there are playing happily in the streets…with PzF 44s and Molotov Cocktails to repel the Soviet invaders. 😉

    Typical western propaganda! Lies and more lies.

    When reporters are surrounded by threatening armed men, do you think the scared civilians tell the truth.

    There is no justice in this NATO war of aggression.
