Gauck opens Munich Security Conference with call for more German engagement

…and now begins the process of slowly warming the public up to a stronger and more involved German military. The Fourth Reich under the United States of Europe is coming.

Gauck calls on Germany to play more decisive role in resolving international conflicts

In his speech, to open the 50th edition of the Munich Security Conference, President Gauck called on Germany to shake off its sense of guilt stemming from World War II and to take more responsibility in shaping international affairs.

“Let us thus not turn a blind eye, not run from threats, but instead stand firm, not forget, neglect or betray universal values, but instead uphold these values together with our friends and partners,” Gauck said. Continue reading

Domination over Europe

Every day it becomes increasingly clear that Germany is using economic warfare as a means to subjugate EU members and force them into being vassal states. It’s also clear that all EU members aren’t on board and won’t tow the German line, therefore we are likely to see in the future a breakup of the EU because it was never going to work in the first place, yet it was by design that this was to happen. As a result, look for an inner-core of Europe consisting of ten nations to be formed and in a union around the German center. The manufactured chaos will allow for German political influence coupled with its economic tenacity during hard times to lead the way while the remaining members latch on to its leadership and give it power.

To preempt a complete and 100% breakdown or revolt against its imperial hegemony as the article suggests, Europe’s powerhouse is likely to shift cheap labor outward towards the peripheral countries to keep their economies just above water and the citizenry obliviously content. The EU’s answer to the EU’s problems is always centered around one goal: More Europe, as every crisis proves to be an opportunity for more regulation and centralization. The United States of Europe is coming, and it will resemble iron mixed with clay.

BERLIN (Own report) – German government advisors support the establishment of new integrationist procedures to pre-empt future resistance to German predominance over the EU. “A major redistribution of power” is currently taking place in Europe, with France and Great Britain falling clearly behind Germany, according to a recent declaration of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP). In Southern Europe, there are already massive protests against the German government’s dictates. These have not yet had major consequences, but timely preventive measures should be taken to pre-empt the establishment of a “countervailing power.” The SWP’s suggestions support various initiatives from within Berlin’s establishment aimed at consolidating German domination over the EU and pushing the next German government toward a more offensive global policy. The German president, for example, called in this year’s National Holiday speech for a more offensive German approach to global politics, and the SWP pleads for Berlin to assume a more decisive “leadership.” Whereas German predomination over the EU is today taken for granted, a shift is perceived in relations to the most important global rival – the United States.

Understanding India

Within a shifting world order, an emerging India is searching for its footing in international relations. Expectations of nascent global influence are high. But the country still falls short of a proactive role in international affairs. At times, India comes across as a difficult partner. For the West to develop a more harmonious relationship with the Asian power it must better understand India and the factors behind the country’s external policies. First, it is necessary to identify the differences between its worldview and that of established powers. The European Union (EU) would err in thinking India is simply part way along a path of convergence towards Western norms and standards. Appreciating the deeply embedded causes of India’s worldview can help the EU mitigate the reserve in its relations with the Asian power.

India’s foreign policy is still relatively embryonic, prudent and constricted. It is driven by self-interest and a policy of non-interference. India is incredibly wary of the tag of hypocrisy often attached to the West. India must not be expected to mould its policies entirely around the norms set by declining Western powers. The new multipolar world order is clearly attractive to India. It allows for more inclusivity, greater equality and a larger say for emerging powers. India increasingly realises that in this new order silence and abstention reverberate loudly. The new order will be strongly conditioned by emerging nations’ own search for new identities. Here are the factors that can help to understand and react productively to India’s evolving foreign policy.
