Luftwaffe rises as SAP falls

It's called irony

Big German software company SAP said today that its pre-tax profit had fallen, even as German Luftwaffe planes were on the attack for the first time in 50 years. SAP said that returns on its enterprise resource planning (ERP) software were not as good as it hoped. As it issued the warning, German war planes were once again in the sky, bombing Serbia for the second time in 50 years. SAP said it could meet its targets, while the Luftwaffe today said it "was confident" it could meet theirs. But SAP is showing signs of weakness, while the German government is acting from a position of some strength. ®
