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...

Is German Chancellor Authorized to Rule Europe?

The foreign chiefs of 28 EU member-states are going to get together in the capital of Belgium on May 5 to discuss more sanctions against Russia. Meeting President Obama Angela Merkel already said the EU is ready to introduce a new package of anti-Russian sanctions. The German Chancellor appears to take the reins into her hands and rule Europe without asking for partners’ consent. At least that’s the way she spoke with the US President. It looked like she was the one to call the shots in the Old World...

On the Contradictions between Washington and Berlin on Ukraine

...Overall, Germany is currently taking a more level-headed position than the United States on the issue of settling the conflict between the Kiev regime and the broad grassroots movement in the eastern regions of Ukraine which is demanding a referendum on the federalization of the state structure. Nevertheless, Berlin is forced to follow in the wake of U.S. policy in matters concerning the sanctions against Russia, which are detrimental to the German economy; the increase of American military presence in Europe; and the movement of NATO troops to the east. In its relations with the United States, Germany has never gotten over the syndrome of the nation that lost the war...

Germans Attitude towards Putin’s Policy: «Mysterious Sympathy»

Ukraine has a special place in German media’s reporting. The US- defined pattern prevails at present. Russia is blamed for instigating the growing unrest in the south-east part of the country... The German Left Party is the only political force that recognizes Russia’s right to defend its interests. Unlike the Left Party members, independent critics of Germany’s foreign policy are destitute of chances to make public appeals. The New Rhenish Newspaper (the Neue Rheinische Zeitung) was the only one to publish a letter signed by 200 representatives of German intelligensia. Russian media told about it, but the fact was largely ignored in Germany. At that, the Putin’s policy has significant support. According to the poll conducted at the beginning of April, around 49 % (60 % in the East) of respondents do not approve tough treatment of Russia... German analysts try to explain the «mysterious sympathy» that Germans feel towards Russians...

The $1 Trillion Dollar Game-Changer: Why the EU Can’t Isolate Russia

German Chancellor Angela Merkel could teach US President Barack Obama one or two things about how to establish a dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin. As if Obama would listen. He’d rather boost his constitutional law professor self, and pompously lecture an elite eurocrat audience in the glittering Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, like he did this Wednesday, on how Putin is the greatest threat to the US-administered global order since World War II.

Nuland: Obscene Remarks Normal among Top Politicians

It’s hard to imagine that the ballyhoo raised over the Nuland’s being rude about the European Union will make think twice those who are willing to see the Transatlantic Free Trade Area agreement signed. No, it does not look like that. Germans have said recently they won’t object to EU imports of genetically modified corn – welcome DuPont and Dow Chemicals. With such easy going partner Americans have no reason to refrain from obscene language. Actually, the very art of diplomacy is not needed in this case... One of Spigel readers writes that is happy not to be a government employee, he can freely express his point of view. Then he uses the very same words Mrs. Nuland said but this time they are addressed to the United States, not the European Union. Let’s consider it to be another view on what the transatlantic partnership is like...

Germany – US: Crisis of Trust

...According to polls conducted among German companies, in 2012 every fourth incident related to spying originated from North America. There have been voices raised expressing doubts about the expediency of acceding to the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Volker Treier of German Chamber of Commerce and Industry said complete transparency in the relationship between partners was indispensable for signing the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement. The lack of confidence would complicate the negotiation process... In its turn the United States let know it would not make serious concessions related to such an important area as cyber security...

Discord Mounting in the European Union (I)

...Instead of overcoming the crisis together, Germany and other European Union member countries are exchanging more and more outrageous accusations. A schism in the ranks of the organization is deepening between the economic locomotive represented by Germany on the one hand and a number of countries in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe on the other. And the fact that many of these states have a bad «credit history» with Berlin could lead to new conflicts which threaten financial losses for all of Europe...

Germany’s Political Parties Prior to the Bundestag Elections

The biggest sensation in the spring polls has been caused by the popularity of the new «Alternative for Germany» party. Polls conducted in connection with the Alternative for Germany party’s founding congress showed its support ranged from 17 to 26 percent, almost the same as the Social Democrats. It is by no means a given that the young party will receive that many votes in the election, yet the very creation of Alternative for Germany, which is calling for the dissolution of the eurozone, has made the European establishment seriously uneasy... Several months before the September elections, the positions of the SPD and the CDU/CSU in the Bundestag agree on virtually every important foreign policy issue. The stability and predictability of its foreign policy is a long-established principle in Germany. Germany’s partners, including Russia, can only welcome this principle, which will hold no matter which party comes into power.

Germany Rediscovers Its Imperialist Drive

Has Germany finally gotten over its war guilt? It would seem so, with the imminent deployment of 400 Bundeswehr troops in Turkey to help install and operate NATO Patriot missile systems in that country. The historic move of German troops being sent to a foreign territory in full combat mode follows the near-unanimous vote by the Bundestag parliament in Berlin earlier this month. Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative-led government had already sanctioned the dispatch of the German Patriot batteries to Turkey as part of a new American and Dutch missile formation there. Initial estimates last month of the total NATO deployment in Turkey have risen rapidly from 400 personnel to an expected 2,000... Both Iranian and Russian leaders have denounced the NATO deployment as a dangerous provocation...

US Thought-Control Goes into Loop over Sony Hollywood Hack

...A crime story at Sony carried out by hackers for extortion or just kicks is transformed into a major national security threat posed by North Korea purely on the basis of innuendo and baseless assertion. Is that not the most audacious manifestation of thought-control and manufacturing of perception? Obama and his ilk in Washington and the American mainstream media are so deluded with their own self-righteous sense of freedom and «exceptionalism». Thought-control is exactly what America is about, as is all too plain to see from the hysteria over the Sony hack and the demonisation of North Korea...
