How would Germany and Russia position themselves in the event of a Sino-American war?

... China, maybe even using the US focus on the Pacific for changes in Europe or staying neutral and being the laughing third party. But very unlikely that Putin will go with the USA to war against China. An interesting detail is that Trump canceled the NATO drill Defender 2020 against Russia, while he keeps up the combativeness of the US military against China and Iran. NATO canceled the drill, Spain was calling for NATO´s support in the Corona crisis management, NATO declared that it would engage ...

Russia, the EU and Macron-cooperation or destruction of the EU? For a Holistic Green Europe!

... very interested in what their chief Dr.Kortunov writes about the defrosting of EU-Russian relations. I have read another article of him, which made me think about how serious he is about it. He wrote that the idea of a treaty between Russia and the EU/NATO to stop its expansion to the East was flawed because treaties are not reliable and can be canceled at any time. Therefore the best way was if Russia changes the power relations in Europe, it should try to expand its influence and leverage. He doesn’t ...

After MSC: A New EU and an New Strategic NATO concept?

... Time is short: the EU has to learn to think outside the box, even if it has to cut back on its liberal focus on values. “ The second major contribution is from General ret. Wittmann in the Tagesspiegel, who criticizes the speechlessness of the EU and NATO and calls for a new strategic NATO concept in the tradition of the Harmel report: „President Macron’s description of NATO as“ brain dead „was certainly unsuccessful. But, critical reference to inadequate consultation and coordination in the ...

German fake neomilitarism or a New East Policy?

... its own and on the other side he is criticizing AKK for its neomilitarism which could give Germany the position to become neutral and independent from the USA and Russia.Source: news.yandex.kzWe don´t know exactly what Putin-Russia wants: A German NATO exit and militarily weak Germany it can control or take over, a highly militarized Germany which will ally against the USA and the West together with Russia, maybe China or some sort of Eurasia. However the German party for this would be the AfD,...

Outlook for 2020: USA-EU trade dispute, decisive year in the relations NATO-Russia and new wave of refugees

... Europeans preferring Russian gas, Eastern Europeans US LNG gas. Nevertheless, the question arises where the Eastern Europeans have so far obtained their gas from and whether they are willing and able to buy more expensive US gas in addition to increased NATO armaments expenditure and also to invest billions of dollars in the necessary infrastructure. Rahr also believes that the Trump-USA would give up NATO in favor of some core defense key states, such as Great Britain, Romania, Poland, and Bulgaria....

70 years NATO – China for the first time as a „possible threat“

The 70th Anniversary of NATO was marked by many disagreements in the Alliance. Macron’s statement that NATO was brain-dead and needed a policy debate was only one point of controversy, alongside Erdogan’s rapproachment to Russia and his call to brand the Kurdish YPG fighters ...

30 Years Fall of the Berlin Wall-Time for a New East Policy?

... reflect on the development of the last 30 years and why we are on the verge of a new Cold War today. Perhaps Gorbachev made the mistake of not securing his own design for a New Europe at the time. The United States and the United Kingdom got Germany´s NATO membership, France the euro, Gorbachev $ 13 billion for the withdrawal of troops and $ 1.5 billion food aid as the supply situation of the Soviet Union worsened and the West feared that Gorbastchov would be overthrown. Perhaps more simply said, than ...

Syria after the Turkish invasion

... militia who want to overthrow Assad and continue to fight against him, as well as they want to expel and disperse the YPG and the resident Kurds. For the Russians it would be best if Assad controlls as much as possible of Syria and that Turkey is leaving NATO and moving farther away from the West. Nevertheless, a Middle East expert said that Russia still can not play the role of a regulatory power in the Middle East, otherwise an imperial overstretch succeeds, especially since Putin has a deep economic ...

Russia joins the Paris Climate Change Agreement: clear the way for an EU-Russia Eco-Alliance?

... climate policy - do not exist. Should it come to the stationing of new nuclear missiles worldwide, the threshold to nuclear war sinks in a frightening way. Germany and the EU need to wake up. The old East-West conflict is history, the confrontation NATO / EU versus Russia - secondary. Europe is on the verge of a global US-Chinese confrontation that may lead to a second Cold War with all the ensuing consequences. The European continent must consolidate again. A common approach EU-Russia is without ...
