In past posts, we’ve analyzed the “austerity” being imposed by Germany on the poorer countries of Europe against the background of the theories of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz. A recent op-ed piece in the New York Times illustrates this analysis very clearly.
Two investigations may well dovetail. We’ve covered the 9/11 attacks for years, beginning with analysis well before the events themselves. We note, also, our recent posts about the intelligence-linked National Socialist Union neo-Nazi group in Germany. Germany Watch has presented a working hypothesis that NSU’s murders were covering-up operational elements in the attacks.
Previously, we have noted how the eurozone crisis is precipitating a stunning, unprecedented dissolution of national sovereignty. With socialist Francois Hollande having called for more “stimulus” in response to the continent’s austerity-driven, German-mandated depression, the French leader is in the crosshairs.
For months, we’ve highlighted the burgeoning scandal surrounding the “investigation” (read “cover-up”) of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Union. The venerable Der Spiegel informs us that a “raffle” awarding press seating to the upcoming trial of one of its members has managed to exclude many of the Federal Republic’s credible and best known publications.
Pre-conceived German economic policies are bearing long-desired fruit. Unable to find work due to German-dictated “austerity,” skilled workers from Greece and Spain are providing “labor battalions” for Germany. The devastating effects of that same “austerity” is making industrial concerns in Greece and Spain ripe for German corporate takeover.
TIMELINE–November, 2012: Germany’s foreign minister encourages the U.S. to embrace both a “Trans-Atlantic” free trade pact and German-dictated “austerity.” January, 2013: Following Obama’s pivot to Asia, German lawyers and economists decamp to North Korea, in the wake of a heralded “economic and political opening to South Korea and the West.” Early spring, 2013: the Hitler-influenced Asian nation’s leader does just the opposite.
In Europe, the nation-state is being forced into obsolescence, and there is little discussion of this staggering development. Angela Merkel has formally stated that EU members must be ready to surrender sovereignty on fiscal matters.
Europol, its police force, has successfully taken a number of steps that many would see as intrusive, with little or no real application to law enforcement.
For years, we’ve been covering the pivotal issue of World War II flight capital, now on the front burner. Germany’s STERN discusses it. So does Tagesspiegel. 8 of 10 Greeks favor Germany paying their WWII debt. So do that country’s political parties. Saying that the debt has been paid, Germany continues to dissemble about the issue.
I.G. Farben’s Fischer-Tropsch process is experiencing an industrial renaissance. In Kosovo, former NATO commander General Wesley Clark is chairman of a company using it to produce synthetic fuel from Kosovo’s coal deposits. Coincidentally (?) the head of NATO peacekeeping forces in Kosovo was the son of Nazi war crminal and Third Reich finance ministry official Fritz Reinhardt.
Greece’s economic problems have been exacerbated by Germany’s failure to compensate Greece for damage done during the occupation of World War II. Elements within the Greek government have compiled a report documenting the extent of the war compensation owed Greece. Germany itself is the greatest debt transgressor of all. Its wartime policy is inextricably linked with its current political/economic posturing.
