Let's save «MAXIM GORKIY», former «HAMBURG»!!!

I took this photo so recently!!! Why does She have to be scrapped??? She's in perfect shape! YES, WE CAN HELP SAVE HER!!!!
«Why has it not worked, Mr. Senator?» The «[Abendblatt]» spoke with Economy Senator Axel Gedaschko (CDU) and asked him why the project "Maxim Gorkiy" failed. I tried my best to translate into English language (please read it as a comment to this post).

ADENDA: The first two songs now playing at Radio Atlântico Azul, «Are we Human», by «The Killers» and «Leave out all the rest», by «Linkin' Park» are the songs «HAMBURG» is now singing on her trip to Alang Bitch, I mean, Alang Beach, in India, WHERE BEAUTIFUL SHIPS LIKE «HAMBURG» AND «INFANTE D HENRIQUE» ARE SLAUGHTERED for half a penny!....

Lyrics of «Are we Human», by «The Killers»:

«I did my best to notice
when the call came down the line
up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind
and sometimes I get nervous
when I see an open door

close your eyes, clear your heart

cut the cord
are we human or are we dancer
my sign is vital, my hands are cold
and I’m on my knees looking for the answer
are we human or are we dancer

pay my respects to grace and virtue
send my condolences to good
give my regards to soul and romance
they always did the best they could
and so long to devotion, you taught me everything I know
wave good bye, wish me well

you gotta let me go
are we human or are we dancer
my sign is vital, my hands are cold
and I’m on my knees looking for the answer
are we human or are we dancer

will your system be alright
when you dream of home tonight
there is no message were receiving
let me know is your heart still beating

are we human or are we dancer
my sign is vital, my hands are cold
and I’m on my knees looking for the answer

you’ve gotta let me know
are we human or are we dancer
my sign is vital, my hands are cold
and I’m on my knees looking for the answer
are we human
or are we dancer

are we human or are we dancer
are we human or are we dancer...»

«Abendblatt: Mr. Senator, investors complain about the high requirements of the city for a berth, and ask whether Hamburg has the courage to leave.

Axel Gedaschko: Of course, we have an interest in the ship in the Hanseatic city, but under the conditions, this is not possible. And with his head through the wall, which helps any further. My authority has spoken intensively with the Chief Construction, HafenCity Hamburg GmbH and the Port Authority after a long-sought berth. Realistically it is and remains the Kirchenpauerkai, other sites are unsuitable.

Abendblatt: Why?

Gedaschko: Another berth is not questioned, because the ship is almost 200 meters long - almost twice the length of the town hall - and over 30 meters high.

Abendblatt: How and when did the investors know about them?

Gedaschko: Already Tuesday lunchtime, I have Mr. Lafrenz framework (guarantee of investors, no public money, ed) indicated. In this call I have made clear to him that there is no 1-a-berth and can give, but a 2-a-berth - that's the Kirchenpauerkai.

Abendblatt: What was the reaction?

Gedaschko: The investors are still not admitted to me come to think about the offer to speak or to negotiate. That disappointed me very much, because I find unfortunate such a behavior under Kaufleuten .

"Leave Out All The Rest", by Linkin Park

«I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I'm done here

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I made

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are»
