29 May 2017. Merkel: “We Europeans Must Truly Take Our Destiny into Our Own Hands”

________________________

German Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel said:

The times in which we could rely on others completely… they’re partly past. I experienced this in recent days. So I can only say… we Europeans must truly take our destiny into our own hands.

Clueless Americans, both “conservative” and “liberal” are misreading this. Merkel is saying loud n’ clear for the whole world to hear:

If the USA refuses to act rationally, we’ll ally ourselves with Moscow and Beijing. We’ll become part of the “One Belt-One Road” and bugger the USA.

Don’t forget… Merkel grew up in the DDR and she speaks Russian. Yes… Putin’s duty-station was in the DDR and he speaks German. Fancy that. Russia’s position is that Europe and Russia are natural partners, unlike the USA’s Euro-Atlanticist vision. Trump and the Republicans had best take a care… if Germany were to realign with Russia most of Europe would follow. The only place that the USA would retain on its side would be the UK… if it managed to stay together. I’d watch Scotland and Ireland…

Hollande sez France doesn’t Want the Ukraine in NATO nor Wants to Send Them Arms

FRANCE-GERMANY-NATO-SUMMIT-DEFENCE

______________________________

French President François Hollande told a press conference in Paris that France finds Ukrainian NATO membership “undesirable” and that Paris doesn’t plan to supply arms to the Ukraine, saying, “We must state it clearly, we should tell other countries the truth, including about what we aren’t ready to accept. This is France’s position”. He noted that Paris is ready to do everything possible to prevent war in the Ukraine by diplomatic means, “France doesn’t fight in the Ukraine and doesn’t want to see war in the Ukraine; we want to prevent war. We must do everything possible in order for diplomacy and politics to gain the upper hand”. Earlier, Hollande said that he’d travel to Kiev with German Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel on Thursday to seek a solution to the intensifying conflict in Novorossiya. On Friday, Hollande and Merkel will hold talks with President V V Putin. Presidential Press Secretary D S Peskov confirmed the meeting, “Indeed, I can confirm that we plan talks tomorrow (6 February) between Putin, Merkel, and Hollande. Leaders of the three countries will discuss what they can do to help end the civil war in [Novorossiya] that has considerably intensified over the last few days and resulted in many casualties”.

Editor:

Mixed signals out of the West… bellicosity from the USA… France pulls back… Germany tries to (unsuccessfully) steer a middle course between the two. This is why the West will fail in the Ukraine. It’s internally-divided. Do note that countries with relatively larger Galician diaspora populations are more hardline than those without such a pressure group. The Galician Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox” are sellouts and suck-ups to Langley (as the ROCOR/OCA duopoly once was… some elements in it still are)… that’s why the US Republican Party will use it as a political football to gain their approval (these groups have concentrations in Ohio and Pennsylvania, two states that always seem in contention in US presidential elections).

29 December 2010. A Point to Ponder…

______________________________

We’re not going to ponder a thought… look at the picture above. It’s a snap of Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel (1954- ) of Germany, taken when she was a young woman in the DDR, that is to say, communist East Germany. A few days ago, I posted a piece by Fr Vsevolod Chaplin on modesty. Whether one wants to agree with it or not, the communist governments of the Cold War period were hardly “permissive”. Indeed, the commies of today are far less accepting of perversity than most Western societies are. For me, this photo shows that Ms Merkel was formed in the socialist DDR, and US Republicans delude themselves if they think that she’s one of them. She was 35-years-old when the DDR fell, which meant that she was a fully-formed adult, not an impressionable child. The commies did much good… and we do violence to history to say otherwise. Whom would you want as your next-door neighbour? Would you want the Angela Merkel of the DDR years, or, would you prefer the greedy pill-popper Rush Limbaugh? I think that I’d choose the “commie zombies”… they’d be closer to God than a ravening and grasping Neoliberal. What about you?
