Merkel Peace Laureate Another Bad Joke

Germans are known for their exceedingly dry humour... But, seriously, the proposed nomination of Chancellor Angela Merkel, according to some media reports, for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize has got to be a joke that will provoke much unintended mirth... Perhaps the most notorious prize winner was former American foreign secretary Henry Kissinger who was hailed a peacemaker despite overseeing criminal, genocidal wars in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia... Candidate for second most notorious peace laureate is current US President Barack Obama...

Western «mediators» are biased toward Kiev putschists

Gone are the days when certain Western nations possessed bona fide credentials as impartial mediators of conflicts. Today, even the Swiss, long regarded as neutral, are anything but, judging from their cooperation agreements with such NATO contrivances the as Partnership for Peace (PfP) and the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC)...

American Information Weapon Used against European Politicians

Anonymous first appeared in 2003 on Internet image boards as a group of hackers espousing the freedom of speech and operating as an «anarchist global digital brain». It is an instrument or a weapon designed to be used in information warfare. It has an advantage - in many cases it is extremely hard to define who exactly used it. But there was no problem of this kind when Anonymous published a 1993 photo report of Angela Merkel visiting the youth club Elbterrassen and meeting with a bunch of skinhead and other friends, one of whom makes a Nazi salute...

Munich Security Conference – Hot Issues and Vibrant Debates as Ukraine Steals the Show (I)

From February 6 to 8, 2015, Munich was again in the focus of international politics with over 400 renowned decision-makers in international politics, including about twenty heads of state and government and more than sixty foreign and defence ministers, 30 CEOs of large global companies as well as strong parliamentary delegations coming together at the 51st Munich Security Conference (MSC) to discuss current and future issues in foreign and security policy focused heavily on the new Russia - West standoff over Ukraine and the Islamic State posing a global threat among other acute issues...

Europe Wary of US ‘All Options’ Threat to Russia

...Everyone except the gung-ho Americans and the swivel-eyed neo-Nazi Kiev junta realise that a stepwise increase in US weapons to Ukraine would mark a rubicon moment, where the US is piling into open war on Russia’s vital interests. While Merkel and Hollande were earnestly endeavouring to find a peaceful way out of the impasse with Putin, it was apparent that a significant divergence between Europe and Washington had emerged...

Merkel as Soft Cop in False Flag Offensive on Russia

At the World Economic Forum last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel let the cat out of the bag with her sly offer, or rather bribe, to Russia. The German leader told delegates in Davos that European Union sanctions on Russia would be lifted in exchange for a «peace deal» in Ukraine. She promised a «free trade pact from Lisbon to Vladivostok»... Merkel, who is known for her ardent «transatlantic» partnership with America, is thus showing herself to be dutifully doing Washington’s bidding over the Ukraine crisis and the bigger objective of subordinating Russia to Western hegemony, or as the New York Times euphemistically calls it «better relations with the West»...

Where Germany Goes to

...In Davos Merkel accused Russia of violating «the values that created a peaceful order in Europe after World War II, namely the acceptance of borders and respect of territorial integrity». Merkel turned a blind eye to the fact that Germany was first (!) to rush and recognize the change of borders in former Yugoslavia that sparked an internal conflict in the Balkans to last for many years. She did not remember Germany mocking the principle of the recognition of borders and the protection of territorial integrity as Serbia was dismembered as a result of Kosovo secession. The day Albania separatists proclaimed their independence Kosovars wrote on the walls of their houses in Pristina «Thank you, Germany!»...

Frau Merkel and Social Networks

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has no social network account of her own. At that many politicians use social communications to follow public opinion trends. They are right. Advisors are one thing, the public opinion is something else... By reading the posts Frau Merkel would realize that the majority of Germans want no conflict with Russia. Having summed up all the posts together for sending them to the Federal Chancellor’s office it may be expedient to add some excerpts from the recent interview of Mikhail Gorbachev with the German weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel... Having accused Germany of interfering in Ukraine's crisis, he said, «The new Germany wants its hands in every pie. There seems to be a lot of people who want to be involved in a new division of Europe. Germany has already tried to expand its influence of power towards the East - in World War II. Does it really need another lesson?..

Another War in Europe? In Whose Name?

The differences between Steinmeier and Merkel on Russia periodically get into the German media’s radar screen, though it’s hard to grasp the gist of it. Social Democrat Steinmeier is concerned over possible deterioration of economic situation. So what? German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble of the ChristianDemocratic Union of Germanyis also concerned over the anti-Russia sanctions but does not support the idea of lifting or at least easing them. The rhetoric of Social Democrats appears to be a bit less tough but it has no influence on Berlin. There is an impression that Chancellor Merkel and Foreign Minister Steinmeier just put on an act - a badly played amateur performance. It’s not even “a bad cop-good cop” classic game but rather it’s “a bad cop (Merkel) - a not so bad cop (Steinmeier)” version. Such performances lack of taste and depth. Anyway, playing such roles will hardly enhance the German liberals’ credibility.

Petersburg Dialogue: a Look from Berlin

...Since a long time ago the United States and Great Britain have been rebuking Germany for excessive pacifism. Some time ago Washington and London joined efforts to make Bundeswehr boost its Afghanistan contingent. Finally Germany increased its military presence in the Hindu Kush Mountains. Now Germans have become contemptuous of pacifism. Though they don’t mean Afghanistan this time. Germany should be prepared to intimidate Russia as well as detect, capture and eliminate terrorists in their hideouts, like the ISIS militants, for instance, says Dr. Guido Steinberg of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik – SWP) in Berlin, a think tank known to provide analysis on foreign policy issues to the Bundestag and the German Federal Government...

Tony Blair and the Hidden Agenda of Serbian Policy

The appointment of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair as advisor to the head of the Serbian government, Aleksandar Vučić, has rocked the media. The Russian television channel RT referred to the decision as an attempt at the «political suicide» of the Serbian prime minister... The principle of running with the hare and hunting with the hounds is a bad principle. Attempts to have a foot in both camps have little in common with the art of diplomacy and rarely end well...
