I can't believe the news today

I can't believe the news today
Seit gestern (22.03.2007) gibt es in Kinshasa, Demokratische Republik Kongo, wieder Ausschreitungen. Die Zahl der Toten schwankt zwischen zehn und „etlichen“.

Dieses Bild ist etwa einen Monat vor der Präsidentschaftswahl 2006 entstanden. Hoffentlich gestalten sie eine bessere Zukunft …

P.S.: Seit dem 24.03.2007 herrscht wieder weitgehend Ruhe – aber wie lange?

There are riots again in Kinshasa, Democratic Republik of Kongo, since yesterday (2007/03/22). The number of the dead varies between ten and „several“.

This picture has been taken about a month before the presidential elections 2006. Hopefully they design a better future …

P.S.: Since 2007/03/24 it is widely quiet again – but for how long?

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long …
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long …
'cause tonight …we can be as one
Tonight …

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long …
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long …
'cause tonight …we can be as one
Tonight …tonight …

Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On …
Sunday Bloody Sunday, Sunday Bloody Sunday …

U2, Sunday Bloody Sunday
