Germany has to face reality now: It’s been living under American protectionism and it can’t pretend to make its violent history go away with hypocritical pacifism. This article in Speigel Online outlines the recent Security Conference in Munich, and VP Biden’s statements that it’s time Germany step to the plate. No more blaming Bush for everything while chowing down copious amount of pickled herring and swilling Bitburger. Time to rock n’ roll with the Taliban and the rest of the world’s extremists.
Even other European countries have come to the realization that the disunity over America’s recent wars strengthened our enemies. It gave them hope that if they only stayed the course, their Islamo-fascist regimes could continue under the blind eye of Germany and France.
Enter: Sarkozy, French President. He holds the key to Europe. If he can pull the rest of the continent from its self riteous slumber, perhaps Iran will consider ceasing its nuclear weapons program.
