In view of the events in Ukraine, the government and many media have switched from level-headed to agitated. The spectrum of opinions has been narrowed to the width of a sniper scope. The politics of escalation does not have a realistic goal – and harms German interests.

  • Hello,

    While the idea needed a large audience I translated Gabor Steingart's intelligent essay "The West on the wrong path" into the Dutch language.

    Her one can find the files with the Dutch version of the essay: http://tinyurl.com/p9ycftf

    It is yesterday offered to all kind of blogs in the Netherlands, till now one published it beautifully: http://tinyurl.com/paoz6rsblogs

    In my opinion it's thé way-out, and in the same mind as Willy Brandt's Realpolitik.
    The German Chancellor Angela Merkel—but in fact all the politicians in the rest of Europe too—can correct their policy that was misguided by the Americans in a easy way and without losing their face or honor.

    You’re a real European Gabor Steingart!

  • Lieber Herr Steingart,

    Maybe you can stand out furthermore in German journalism by publishing (parts of) the below mentioned article by a well known Malaysian Newspaper.

    A May 7, 2014 article in the New Straits Times (NST), Malaysia's flagship newspaper, charged the Ukrainian regime with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state.

    The US and European media have buried this remarkable report, which refutes the wave of allegations planted by the CIA in international media claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin was responsible for the destruction of MH17, without presenting any evidence to back up this charge.

    The NST article, titled "US analysts conclude MH17 downed by aircraft," lays out evidence that Ukrainian fighter aircraft attacked the jetliner with first a missile, then with bursts of 30-millimeter machine gun fire from both sides of MH17. The Russian army has already presented detailed radar and satellite data showing a Ukrainian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet tailing MH17 shortly before the jetliner crashed. The Kiev regime denied that its fighters were airborne in the area, however.

    The NST article began, "Intelligence analysts in the United States have already concluded that Malaysia flight MH17 was shot down by an air-to-air missile, and that the Ukrainian government had had something to do with it. This corroborates an emerging theory postulated by local investigators that the Boeing 777-200 was crippled by an air-to-air missile and finished off with cannon fire from a jet that had been shadowing it as it plummeted to earth. It corroborates too with the twitter messages of a Spanisch air traffic controller that two Ukrainian military fighters accompanied the MH17 until 2-3 minutes before its downing"

    Thanks & kind regards

  • I was being looking for an article like this for a long time.

    It looks like the press media is becoming a prestitute media (at least in US).

    Thank you for providing such an in-depth analysis of the current politics of EU vs Russia.

    EU scratched the "bear" twice in the last century, and the world (or the "bear") does not need another "thorn" pushed by US with EU's hand.

    How ironic that the world sees Putin as a democratic leader, vs West leaders as puppets of US!

    Winter is coming soon: for EU and Russia.

  • "The American tendency to verbal and then also military escalation, the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies has not proven effective."

    Yes - I remember well how German tact, empathy and understanding just broke through the hard barriers of distrust with which Slobodon Milosevic had surrounded himself and led him to call of the assaults on Bosnia and Kosovo. What would have happened then without German insight the ended what - given the history of the Balkans - could have been mass murder and ethnic cleansing in those regions before they got started? Have no doubt that we (and many, many Bosnians and Kosova Albanians) have the measure of your courage and humanitarian concern...

  • Der Artikel ist ausführlich und gibt mehr her als nur einseitige Infos. Und wer sich mehr über das Polit-Amerika, Obama und das State-Department informieren will, sollte sich aufklären lassen von Paul Craig Broberts vom "Institute for Political Economy" (USA) und seine Website aufrufen: "PaulCraigRoberts.org" - da kann man nachvollziehen, wie die amerikanische Bevölkerung, wir in Europa und in Deutschland manipuliert und belogen werden. Ich halte es für äußerst wichtig, dass unsere Ahnungslosigkeit nicht noch mehr und schlimm missbraucht und manipuliert wird, sonst ist jedes Sich-Wehren ohne Sinn..!

  • After reading this on ZeroHedge I can tell you/Germans that we as people do not have any interest in going to war with Russia or even being involved in yet another war. Most of us didn't even want a war in Iraq. Our government is no longer controlled by the "will of the people". We have been taken over by a kleptocracy of Banksters, military industrial complex, and intelligence agencies. The people are broke, tired, and foreclosed on. In short our government is rouge and unresponsive... My advice to you and your people is... "act accordingly."
