Jukebox Friday: Hooverphonic - You Hurt Me

I get a nice 90s vibe from this 2005 song. Trademark strings, clever chords and the silver-dagger vocals of Geike Arnaert await you!

"Hold this for me, okay?"

For a long time, the presence of U.S. nuclear weapons at the Kleine Brogel Air Base in Limburg has been a public secret. In a cable from 2009, recently posted on WikiLeaks, then-ambassador Howard Gutman turns the secret into a fact:
On the military side, the American tactical nuclear weapons stationed at Kleine Brogel in Belgium make its government take a cautious approach.
It's a shame that the Belgian people need a channel like WikiLeaks to inform them that an ally is keeping WMDs in their backyard.
