9/11

 

Have just been watching this documentary on 9/11. No, not 9/11/2001 but 9/11/1683 (September the 11th, 1683) when the Battle of Vienna began.

History repeats itself except that today's invading armies are dressed in designer jeans and carry smartphones, and their "Golden Apple" is Berlin rather than Vienna.

Different century, different place, same intentions - and this time they seem to succeed!
