Germany can try to resume its foreign trade relationship with Russia, or it can go broke trying to please the U.S. government. The choice is obvious to everyone but the Germans. From Tatiana Obrenovic at strategic-culture.org:
An ever-growing number of politicians in Germany and EU want to turn the clock back to the way things used to be ‘pre-conflict in Ukraine’ days.
Exorbitant prices for energy supplies and economic crisis which fell upon the Western Europe as a response to the EU sanctions against Russia have made many analysts cast a nostalgic look at the times bygone with Russian gas galore which contributed to German rapid economic development for decades.
If we recall the ominous words ‘Keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down’ – the words of NATO’s first Secretary General, Lord Ismay, when explaining the aims behind the new military alliance (as it was then), the U.S. hidden agenda has always been for Germany to just flourish economically and not much more than that.
It is now more evident that an ever-growing number of politicians in Germany and EU want to turn the clock back to the way things used to be ‘pre-conflict in Ukraine’ days. One of the most avid advocates of such relations is the former German Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder.
Meanwhile in Russia, they listen to Wagner.
