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.

Anne Applebaum on Europe: The world’s new superpower

Authoritarian and autocratic regimes are still using violence to preserve their power. The United States can step back from international conflicts, but that won’t make them disappear.

That power is Europe. Continue reading
