Armor Fati

"Traicit et fati litora magnus amor."

Heinz Guderian once asked Hitler "Was it really necessary
to attack Kursk and indeed in the East that year at all.
Do you think anyone even knows where Kursk is?"
to which Hitler agreed with him saying, "I know. The thought
of it turns my stomach." It was just the two of us
and we went to visit my older sister. Soldiers headed
for Iraq are still buying their own body armor — and in
many cases, their families are buying it for them: spikey
quills covering body as well as hard shell on back.

They go on and on like you thought I stole your armor.
Just south of the guildtower and west of the Knights of
the Bad Face, north of the Spears of Odin's Handmaidens
(per fati un esempio nel tread della gilda leggevo che
piccolo fatica
) weapons and armor are made by the best smiths
of the land. I want to know where to get shoulder pads.
To enable tanks and heavy armor to penetrate to the camp,
the IDF sent in the only survivor of the incident. He explained
how his son and his love of your unchangeable fate buries
secretly her weapons as she takes up her sword again.

Surreal reality: my armor, my collapse module.
L'ouvrage de Michel Defromont s'appuie sur des faits réels.
If somehow we do survive, if the path does continue,
I hope it is made by others like you. My formula for
greatness in a human being has been wounded in this war,
and because of body armor and better emergency medicine,
the dancing became even more abandoned, with no sign
that irony can serve as a sufficient protective armor
against criticism of that aspiration for danger.
I finde it easier to beare all ones life a combersome
armour of the finer compositions of Rumba Music.
