This is currently the top  story in Russia’s popular newspaper, Pravda. Check it out!

via Can Germany turn its back on USA? No, it can’t – English pravda.ru.

As well as distorting history and throwing red-meat to the Russian masses, the article tries to stir  a bit of trouble in Germany.

Thoughts?

  1. Germany, positioned where it is at the center of Europe, cannot avoid dealing with Russia to its east and because it exports a great deal to America which guarantees its freedom militarily it cannot free itself from America either.

    In addition, all NATO forces, other than those of France, are “plug and play” components of the US military and use identical/nearly identical equipment.

    The part about most German gold reserves being in America and the UK is correct but we in the UK cannot be complacent because under Gordon Brown 50% of the UK’s gold reserves were sent to the Bundesbank although we were never given the full reasons.

    The article does as Dr Alf observes, throw red meat to the Russian people but to my mind it does it in a tongue in cheek way.
