Germany's hypocrisy exposed
Germany is a lovely country with lovely people. Yet it is governed by people who have no clue to what they are doing and this seems to apply to all and any German political party.
Not to defend Europe, borders on treason
Today, on the 16th of January 2023, the German defense minister rightly resigned. Let's hope that the next defense minister will do something real about Europe's defense.
Defense lesson 101 - Chain reaction
Germany will never be able to defend itself from a major power on its own, it will need the help of the international community
To ensure that help will be forthcoming Germany's best bet is to demonstrate that it deserves to be helped
The best way to demonstrate this is to help defend Ukraine in every way it can, including military assistance and commitment to a real blockade / boycott of Russia. To date almost a year since the war started Germany, has done next to nothing. In fact they have undermined real sanctions and increased trade with Russia. What a foolish thing to do.
Spending money on its own defense is a waste of the German people's hard earned money, if Germany continues to finance Russia and embolden Russia by dragging on the war and failing to give real military support to Ukraine.
Ukraine needs 100s of tanks not just a dozen or two.
Now is the chance to engage a new defense minister who will stop trying to fool the public and do his job which is to take part in the defence of Europe
These days there is a lot of self-applause in Germany
We should wait with the applause.
For sure Germany has been dragging it's feet. The politicians are among other things blaming this on the people: that the people of Germany were not ready to support Ukraine. Strange type of argument for the German Government did not listen to its people when it came to over restrictive COVID-19 measures. And in fact this is a misrepresentation because the people of Germany have learned from their Nazi past not to let another Hitler like personality, Putler ruin this world.
Also whatever German politicians say is not the same as actions. So let's see if the German government delivers fast and let's see if they stand enough behind Ukraine, for Ukraine to be able to recover ALL of its territory.
Despite all the publicity German is not planning to do much. It is sending 14 tanks and apparently even that might take a long time. Whereas 100s of tanks will be coming from elsewhere and that is still not enough.
Ukraine also needs fighter jets and Germany is standing in the way.
Germany should be seen as being co-responsible for the current and future suffering in Ukraine. If Crimea is left out, then that is an invitation for a future war, because Russia will never be content with Crimea without a land corridor. Which is understandable in a military sense. Our answer to that has to be to get Russia out of Crimea and out of the Black Sea. (Please support us to say what needs to be said - click here...)

And contrast the status in Russia and Ukraine on the website www-russia.org How can any country continue to trade with a country that is responsible for genocide, the deliberate destruction of the culture, well being and infrastructure of an entire country populated by their own so to speak brothers and sisters.
