Picasso Heir Requests Immediate Close-Down of Katterbach Airbase
02 Jul 2017
A Madrid-based lawyer ordered by the heir of the 20th century master painter Picasso has requested the immediate close-down of the American airbase from which the war crimes his grandfather once documented in his most widely known painting had originated. The artwork named “Guernica” after a Spanish city carpet-bombed in the Civil War of the 1930s documents the results of the air raid in the artist’s unique style of greyish black-and-white abstraction avoiding any direct view of blood, but still giving most viewers a striking impression of the suffering imposed by the appearance of the tactic in war theatres around the globe. Katterbach airbase had been set up by the Nazis, and nearly a century after their defeat still is an American aggression hub.
The request follows revelations through Wikileaks that the airbase on the fringes of the German town of Ansbach is the likely origin of an incident in the nearby Nuremberg area, in which a mob of American soldiers harassed a local inhabitant travelling in a train carriage and were caught literally red-handed on camera in their hormone flash. The target however turned out to be an anti-infiltration professional capable of turning the spear and drawing a circle around the threat in order to make it visible to operators.

In a description of the encounter, VCVG had texted over the internet that he had come into a hurry which required him to take an unsafe travel path, but realised that his time was not too scarce to purchase a lure and tip a beggar on the spot. When the enemy soldiers perceived the lure, unbeknown of the fact that their insane greed would morally put them even below the beggar, they publicly lost their temper and professional appearance. They were immediately left to themselves, and the lure, a factory food package only selected for its deranged product name, dropped into a free give-away basket installed by local administration.

VCVG said that uncovering the lure and watching the agents fall over each other due to their grotesque expectation he might bite it himself was a remarkable revelation in regard to both their plans and their restraints or lack thereof. Everything from the grotesque uniformity of their plain clothing to the shrill cognitive dissonance in their voices and the bizarre group behaviour in their appearance signified their intent to commit covert murder. He stressed that watching the threat unfold in his proximity felt like walking through a three-dimensional reproduction of the notorious Guernica painting. And in fact it turned out the mob had originated from that very airbase.

VCVG said while he felt safe due to the nuclear deterrence the free world is imposing upon the Americans giving all their grasps for unilateral aggression an apocalyptic turn, the beggar and lure method was still an improvement because it did not require afar diplomats to judge over death-ridden occupation soldiers, but would simply deface them and put them into the hands of a local who knows the distinction between up and down. Not only was it cheaper than nuclear deterrence, it was also possible to be implemented with leftover money and time under conditions of arbitrary scarcity without any requirement of a however little budget.

When the heir of Picasso learned from the Wikileaks report that Katterbach Airbase from which the war crime documented in the painting had originated was still operational, and little more than an exchange of staff and material had happened since, with current war crimes originating from there, it was only a matter of logic and common sense to follow up with the request for the site’s immediate close-down.
