Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp. Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire. The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.

  25. 1916 Saturday: The first U.S. national women’s swimming championships took place on this date.  Meanwhile, on the Western Front during World War I, the Germans are battling to control the ground surrounding Verdun, one of the all-time worst meatgrinder battles.  Both the French and Germans are throwing everything they have into a swift victory which eludes both powers.
  26. 1917 Sunday: During World War I, the Russians are pushing towards Bagdad with the Ottoman Turks in headlong retreat.  The ‘Sick Man of Europe,’ the Ottomans because they have been in decline for so long are battling to hold onto Palestine as well as to prevent a Russian invasion from the north and east (not that the Russians are doing all that well- in a few more months, the Bolshevik Revolution would knock them out of the fight).
  27. 1918 Monday: With Russia embroiled in the civil war between the Reds and the Whites, the Germans continue pummeling them for concessions on all manner of things.  Today, they give Moscow an ultimatum as parts of the new Soviet Union break apart.  Give Finland their freedom or we will continue operations against you.  The Kaiser’s Germany and the Finns have a history.

  36. 1940 Monday: The Soviet NKVD- the secret police- begin trucking captured Polish officers into the Katyn Forest where they will soon begin machine-gunning them to death, at least 22,000 Polish officers and intelligentsia, people the Soviets view as impediments to them forcing communism onto the conquered portion of the nation they control.
  37. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  38. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.
  39. 1943 Thursday: Craig “Stinkbug” Carrici was born in Pumpkin Center,[i] California, on this date; he is the founder of the AICP-END Blog.  Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia.  As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts.  Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
  40. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  41. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  49. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  50. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

  60. 1991 Monday: After five years of holding British citizen Roger Cooper hostage, the scumbag Islamist regime in Iran released him.  Meanwhile here in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that attorneys could not bar jurors from serving due to their race.  Finally, with the ongoing collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact disbanded.

  65. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  66. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.

  69. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  70. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race. 
  71. 2008 Tuesday: While the Dalai Lama is visiting India, his hosts request that he not anger neighboring communist China.  India is unclear of its military abilities should the Chi-Coms begin launching attacks along their joint border.

  73. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.
  74. 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake.  Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders.  It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
  75. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  76. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  77. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  78. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  79. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  80. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  81. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  82. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  83. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  84. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover what the communists are up to today…

The Michael Schenker Group- the original minus one- reformed and knocked out a classic- “In the Midst of Beauty” which came out on May 13, 2008.  Joining the legendary German guitarist are vocalist Gary Barden, Neil Murray (bass- the new guy), Don Airey (keyboards), and Simon Phillips (drums).   The reborn MSG said let’s pick up where we left off and knock their socks off which is exactly what they do here.  Japanese, European, and Scandinavian fans love the album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your collection- you will be so glad you did.  Guaranteed.

[i] Stinkbug would always say he was born in Oildale, California, which is 10 miles or so north of Pumpkin Center because he was embarrassed to tell people he was born in Pumpkin Center because people would laugh.  Now, he says he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone says.  Happy birthday, Stinky!
