Germany’s at War with Russia?


We posted this earlier, but it deserves more attention. This German Foreign Minister is either using the word “war” lightly or it’s a slip of the tongue. She said Germany is “fighting a war against Russia.”

Speaking before the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Annalena Baerbock of the German Green Party said Germany is at war with Russia. Russia would agree with that, but NATO doesn’t.

“I’ve said already in the last days – yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks,” Baerbock said. “But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”

Maybe this isn’t the job for her.

When Chancellor Scholz announced that he would send tanks hours later, he made a point of saying this did not mean they were at war with Russia.

Russia thinks they are.

Europe has to be at War with the World. Europe is a Dying Continent. It lacks the Natural Resources to support it’s Liberal Population who wants everything for Free. Germany’s lack of Natural Resources is why it (and other countries) have spawned people like Hitler and today Klaus Schwab.

The Natural order of things is if you can “protect” your Nation it dies. It takes resources to protect a Nation. Nations without resources have two options, buy them or take them. Europe is increasingly unable to buy the resourced they need and no longer has the militaries to take them. Europe will die a slow death and will take America with them if we don’t wise up.

NATO never was a good idea! Our Founding Fathers foresaw the demise of Europe over 200 years ago which is why they did not want to get into European entanglements.

As soon as sanctions were levied the West was at War, albeit an economic war. Once weapons were sent the West began to be in a kinetic war, their claims otherwise notwithstanding. Furthermore the West is assisting with intelligence and target acquisition which makes them even more involved. Just because ground forces haven’t been ‘sent in‘ doesn’t mean the West isn’t on a war footing. There are quite a number of ex-military, mostly Polish, foreign mercenaries which haven’t been prohibited by those nations. Rather they have been encouraged. The war effort also includes the funding of Ukraine in military, government and social efforts.

What Ukraine is unable to foresee is the indebtedness that country is facing in the long term. The country is required to pay all those costs at some point in the future. Zelensky understand some part of this when he said the West can make a great deal of money in this venture. (It wasn’t until around 2008 that Russia paid their debts for WWII to the West) This is what NATO and the EU have done to many countries. They saddle a country with huge debt and force austerity on the people. Greece has suffered this for years. Sri Lanka is another one and the public there are in revolt as a result. Yanukovich was aware of this and the reason he sought more favorable terms. The World Bank and the IMF are the means to pillage countries who then bribe officials and then are incapable of resisting further. How did it work in Iraq. Were local workers tasked for any rebuilding. I found it offensive at the time that only American companies and workers were awarded contracts. And officials couldn’t understand why Iraqis began to hate Americans. Is it any wonder then why so many countries hate the West and siding with Russia and China.

Maybe it’s time to revisit the 60’s book The Ugly American.

 An honest politician?
Ideologically the USA is at war with China and Russia and probably with Iran as well. The is an old saying, something to the effect of “War is the final step of diplomacy.”
In Ike’s day it was acknowledged as ‘the cold war.’

  • One thing I learned in high school that was a very valuable life time lesson: bullies bully people they do not respect.

I was terribly bullied my first two years in high school. Our Christian school had taken in a few kids with gang connections to try to help them. One day I was running alone on the perimeter for track training. There were four of them and one of me. They were about 15 feet away and they all pulled switchblades and opened their blades. They started to make threats. I knew were all heavy smokers and I could easily outrun them unless the understood wolfpack tactics. Just then a police cruiser appeared on the adjacent property. I saw it first and relaxed a bit. They noted my change, looked around. The knives disappeared and they melted away.
That night I made up my mind never to be bullied again. The next day the weakest of the four, with a game arm, cornered me in an empty class room and reached for his knife. I looked at him with hate in my eyes and said, “If you open that knife I will break your good arm, beat you up and then call the office. He looked so surprised. I took a step toward him and he was out of the room in a flash. Foolishly I did not immediately report the incident which I should have done.
The next day he was suddenly beside me in the hall during class change and said, “sorry, can we be friends?” That effectively ended the bully not only from his friends but almost every other group also. That incident was 63 years ago. To this day I have never been in a fight, but am constantly on the look out for potential trouble.
Indecision is a sign of weakness, as is fear and bullies feed off it. I like the way the Bible puts it:  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, maintain peace with everyone. Romans 12:18

Never start trouble, but never give a bully an inch.
If one stands by and watches a bully hurt others – guess who is next.

Admiral Yokomto, architect of Pearl Harbour, obeyed his superiors but said, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

May our enemies always understand our resolve.
Weak men like Biden, without resolve, encourage the bullies
