Germany Warns Against Demonizing Russia: "Our History Speaks Against It"

It appears - by the definition proscribed from America's establishment - that Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the President of Germany, is a treasonous Russian troll.

What other explanation is there for his remarks today, warning the United States (and the rest of the Western establishment) against demonizing Russia; and added that Germany had a particular role to play in maintaining dialogue with Moscow, given the nations' history.

In an interview published on Sunday, Reuters reports that Steinmeier spoke out over fears that this weekend's airstrikes by The West had dramatically increased the serious risk of a direct conflict between Russian and US forces.

“We are at the next step of escalation in the Russian-American relationship,” Steinmeier, who twice served as Germany’s foreign minister, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

While Steinmeier toed the party line that the evidence pointed clearly at Russia’s involvement - which was alarming - he warned that:

The galloping alienation between Russia and the West must also concern us, with consequences that will go far beyond this case. There is practically no basis of trust any more.”

Steinmeier went on to urge diplomacy and for Western politicians to keep the door to dialog open:

“Regardless of (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, we cannot declare Russia as a whole, the country and its people, to be an enemy,” he said.

“Our history speaks against it, and there is too much at stake.”

As a reminder, Germany  - who recently (and controversially) backed the Nord Stream 2 project against Washington's wishes - relies on Russia for about a third of the gas it uses.

America ruins the world to rule it.

The Zionist Deep Staters will do anything to cause Syria and Russia to capitulate.

-Muellers Gestapo FBI invades Trump's lawyer's office to leverage him into bombing Syria

-Britain has now kidnapped Yulia Shripkal

-Frances Rothschild President helps bomb Syria

- American bombs try to demolish the staged Syrian poisoned gas farce.

The mask is coming off the Wests evil. We're the bad guys. Psychopath power lovers keep pushing and pushing to nuclear war. Putin's patience preserves the peace.

God bless and protect Putin and Russia and Syria and Assad

It is blatantly clear that Europe has more to do with Russia and the Eurasian continent as a whole than with the degenerate states of America. 

Together Germany and Russia can single handedly rule the world by sharing their respective superior engineering with the immense natural resource deposits held by Russia. 

And that is what the Zionist empire is deadly afraid of.

>>>America's goal in Asia is to keep Japan from China. In Europe , Russia from Germany.

This is indeed the major thrust of US foreign policy;  a decade or more ago Foreign Affairs (the Mighty Wurlitzer of the Council on Foreign Relations) published an article which frankly stated that the long term policy of the USA was to "control the relationship between Germany and Russia, and between China and Japan"). 

Even amerika's mid-East and Israel policies are not IMHO as fundamental as the above; if either the two nation pairs evolve into a tacit or explicit alliance, amerikan hegemony is finished... forever.

Geez, I wonder why?...I actually appreciated Jewish humor ... Now it's just a house of screw the goyim. Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and the current crop have no talent but to be divisive and nasty. Spewing leftist hate and bullshit and calling it funny. The old school were actually funny....I must be rayciss! Although a religion is not a race.

If you must ask, Prussia.  You know, the kingdom seated in Berlin, and with explicitly Imperial ambitions.

You could also make inquiries of the Poles, Czechs and Balts.  The lands to the west of Germany were highly developed and organized; to the east and south of Germany lay relatively under-developed and more lightly populated lands, where in-migration of Germans was often encouraged by local rulers as a step toward a wealthier and more modern society.  You might say, though, that the Drang nach Osten ultimately got a little out of hand.

"Drang nach Osten"...

French & Swedes ruled and had centuries of "Drang"...

"You could also make inquiries of the Poles, Czechs and Balts"

and Germans...

1. 30 Years' War 1618-48

2. 9 Years' War 1688-97

3. Napoleonic Wars 1803-15

Major impact of Thirty Years’ War, in which mercenary armies were extensively used, was devastation of entire regions scavenged bare by foraging armies. Episodes of widespread famine and disease devastated the population of German states and, to a lesser extent, Low Countries and Italy. Over the course of the war, population of German states was reduced by about 30%. Male population of German states was reduced by almost half. Population of Czech lands declined by a third. Swedish armies alone destroyed 2,000 castles, 18,000 villages and 1,500 towns in Germany, one-third of all German towns.

- Centuries of French "Drang" for all lands east to Rhine River bank...until Napoleon wanted all of Europe...

- German speaking Alsace-Lorraine taken by France after 30 Years' War, which had been part of German Holy Roman Empire since 900 A.D.  

- Napoleon had Quadriga crated and shipped from Berlin to Paris...

>>>"Drang nach Osten"...

This is fairly elementary European history. 

German states participated in many wars and other relationships, West and East;  the Germans' relationship with lands to the east and southeast was different, however, from their relationship with lands to west and north, as both I and (I surmise) TroyOunce were attempting to describe. 

If you look at a linguistic map of Europe circa 1914, you'll see numerous pockets of German-speaking people throughout Eastern Europe, extending beyond the Volga, with population numbers totaling in the millions.  Magdeburg Law specifically was extremely influential in the organization of urban life in the Czech lands, Poland and Hungary, just as Roman and Frankish law had previously influenced Germany. 

At the point when Germany became Christianized and more economically developed, Italy, France and the Low Countries had preceded them in that process, in some cases by centuries.  This generally was not true of the Slavs, Balts and Hungarians, in whose lands Germans frequently settled - whether invited or not.

Much land east of Oder-Neiße rivers was undeveloped or very sparsely populated...

Germans were not only ones to develop those lands...

Dutch...Swedes...and other northern Europeans settled these areas becoming 'Germanized' under "Magdeburg" Rights as were numerous Slavs when in a minority...

"Invited"...Poles were expelled after WWll from lands of western Ukraine...Belarus...after centuries of settlement...

Late 19th century numerous Poles moved to Ruhr region working in coal mines/steel mills...settling in along with their post generations...

2-way exchange long before passports and hard borders...

 Germany has reached the point where it has to choose .

 Does it go down with the American Titanic or walks on the Silk Road and enjoys cheap ,secure gas from Russia , a serious partner ?

 Decisions ,decisions !

 America might pull ,again , some Gladio 2.0 on their Teutonic asses  to help Germany with this decision.

 If Germany  switches sides , it's really over for America .

Yes , maybe Germany could be made a stumbling block. 

Germany has no place in Nato as a former accused nation of wars of aggression that did not go her way out of shame before joining a new and much more an aggressive alliance

that served her well for some non-state affairs of her well being as a vassal state.

But that is period.  Cold war over , war of aggression against the former Yugoslavia

handled professionally by allied forces riding over German bases was a weak excuse for as such criminally participating in a war of aggression.

The problems of 1914 and the years immediately prior were caused by the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, greed, the corrupt power inherent in empires, and judeo-finance operations.

The problems of 1939 were caused by Zionists interests and their continual "stabbing in the back" of Germany from 1918 until roughly 1933 or so.
