Who in the 70s and 80s – like me together with a handful (! ) The members of the Federal Parliament – appointed for the reunification of Germany, was laughed out loud. Chancellor Helmut Kohl at times even deleted them from the CDU party program. * His predecessor Willy Brandt called them the “life lies” of the Germans in 1988. **
But then came with Michail Gorbatschow a Russian relaxation politician who wanted real, sustainable peace in Europe and waved through the German re-union. The troops of the Warsaw Pact were not allowed to intervene,
The German Foreign Minister Genscher promised in a “hand-cuff deal” to the Soviet Minister of Foreign Affairs Schewardnadse not to exploit the German reunification in a military strategy and to miss out on an Easter expansion of NATO. US Secretary of State Baker made the same pledge.
According to a long secret note, Bonn’s authorized Jürgen Chrobog explained at that time: “We made it clear in the two-plus-four negotiations that we are not extending the NATO beyond the elbe.” Therefore, we cannot offer Poland and the others NATO membership. “
The British, French, and Americans also rejected a NATO membership to the Eastern Europeans. US representative Raymond Seitz said: “We made it clear to the Soviet Union – in two-plus-four – as well as other talks – that we will not benefit from the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Eastern Europe. “Two years later, Americans corrected their policies. ***
Genscher told me the story of his promise several times in his house in Wachtberg-Pech in all details.
Scholz, Habeck and Lindner are breaking this historic promise of the West in the most fragile way these days. German arms deliveries to Ukraine are the biggest betrayal of a German government in the history of the federal republic.
Already their predecessors allowed US-led NATO Easter expansion for years without turning red. But the Ampel government puts the crown on this political villain. She replaces the Russian neighbor Ukraine with money and heavy weapons. Against Russia.
Germany is doing the unbelievable with this. There is a war against Russia. Germany intentionally provides aid to the killing of Russian soldiers. With German money and weapons. The 27 million Soviet citizens who were murdered by the German nazis in World War II, Scholz, Habeck and Lindner do not fear this betrayal.
I know this narrative isn’t complete. Meanwhile lies a merciless anti-national rights attack war between Russia against Ukraine, which gave the German “traitors” a seem legitimacy for their betrayal.
This war of Russian assault was not only internationally acceptable. He was also a serious strategic mistake. A gift to the USA, whose eye has always been a thorn in the eye of a German-Russian partnership. Finally, the US could drop all the obstacles against its former rival Russia.
George Friedman, founder and director of the world’s leading private US think factory in the field of geopolitics STARTFOR (Strategic Forecasting) explained the US strategy specifically in Europe: “The primary interest of the United States, for what we have been doing.” The wars have been leading for a century – World War I and the Second and Cold War – were the relations between Germany and Russia. Because united, they are the only force that can threaten us, and our interest has always been to make sure that doesn’t happen. “
With its weapons deliveries to Ukraine, the ampoule fulfills its central geostrategic dreams to the USA. ****
That does not mean that Germany had to watch the Russian war of attack actlessly. Our role should have been that of the peace maker. For example, through a powerful initiative for a European peace conference in the weeks before the war began.
Peace is always possible . And also the obligation of German politics. The preamble of our basic law commits all of us to “serve world peace in a united Europe” – and not to make us slaves to the still imperialist policies of the United States and the German arms industry.
* https://www.spiegel.de/…/cdu-abschied-von-alten… and: Karl Hugo Pruys, in his book «The Mythos of the Chancellor of the Unit»: »1987 it is to thank the intervention of the deputy Todenhöfer that the German unit remained as a national goal in the CDU program. Although Helmut Kohl would have been ready to drop her singing and soundlessly under the table. “
