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

One can agree with Carl Schmidt, namely to rethink things for the state of emergency and also to prepare mentally for worst case scenarios. An important question that comes to my mind again and again is how Germany will position itself in the event of a Sino-American war – itself and within the EU, especially since it is quite possible that Rumsfeld polarization will re-establish itself in old and new Europe.

European independence on foreign ...

It was rational to take advantage of the European Economic Union and to boost its exports. Greece’s economy is depended on tourism and agriculture. The economic rationality drives us to the following idea: Germany, France and the other eurozone states insist on the concept that Greece should pay back the massive loans that it took.
