Germany, the amnesic giant



Germans are disciplined, forever disciplined. They followed the dementia of Nazism to the end, they now follow flower power lullabies until the end. In 1945, the German army was defeated. Hitler was said to have committed suicide in his bunker, the Nuremberg trials showed the execution of the National Socialist regime main dignitaries. The civilians had just undergone terrifying bombardments, foreign troops marching on their boulevards. Terrorised, traumatized, Germans were in shock. They were ready to be "reprogrammed" by the United States on one side, by the Soviets on the other. The goal of Moscow and Washington was to drown Germany forever. Today, despite its accomplishments, Germany is struggling to assume its leadership.


Americans created the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) on 23 May 1949, with Bonn as its capital; Soviets responded by proclaiming the German Democratic Republic (GDR) on October 7, 1949, with East Berlin as its capital. Red Army soldiers invaded the eastern territories of the Oder River and its tributary, the Neisse. These German territories were monopolized by Poland and the USSR. 13 million Germans from East Germany and Eastern European countries were expelled from their homes and had to settle, in a confusion that can be imagined, in the territories of the FRG and the GDR . These populations were bombed day and night by Anglo-American planes to annihilate any psychological resistance. The tutelary powers carefully chose the leaders who would implement mental control of the Germans. Konrad Adenauer, Christian Democrat, was the first chancellor chosen by the Americans for West Germany. The Soviets chose Walter Ulbricht to lead the GDR.

In 1955, the FRG joined NATO. East Germany was a member of the Warsaw Pact. The two Germanies faced each other, each one being a good pupil of his master. The Federal Republic of Germany was a member of the European Community in 1957, without nuclear weapons or a permanent seat on the UN Security Council, to reassure its neighbors. Nie wieder, nie allein " was the motto :" Nie wieder ": never again aggressive nationalism and military expansion," Nie allein ": never alone versus others.
Bonn, a zealous member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, of the European Union, of the Council of Europe, was the great zealotor of the liberal and globalist economy wanted by Washington. This "economic giant and political dwarf" faithfully followed Washington's guidelines by working for the European Union as well as transatlantic cooperation, striving to make the specter of the German Empire forgotten.

The successive leaders of the Federal Republic of Germany, Willy Brandt, and then Helmut Schmidt, were allowed to negotiate with Moscow, with the aim of reuniting the two Germany (Ostpolitik). But the leaders of the GDR and Moscow also hoped to incorporate the FRG into the eastern bloc. The anti-American agitation of German pacifist groups during the 1979 euromissile crisis was the work of Moscow; As well as the anti-militarism of German society in the 60s and 70s, expressed by the famous slogan "better red than dead".
Finally, the brutal USSR collapse favored the FRG and enabled Helmut Kohl to achieve reunification on the night of 9 November 1989, when Berlin Wall fell. Helmut Kohl bought the silence of Moscow by giving him 100,000 tons of meat and five billion marks. The following year, Germany was reunited politically in the Federal Republic, with Berlin as its capital.
In 1998, Gerhard Schröder, the new Social Democratic Chancellor, governed with the Green Party ... The ecologist party is the symbol of a devastated Germany, fanatically tolerant and pacifist. This is the result of decades of conditioning by school and medias. In June 2001, the government pledged to close all its nuclear power stations before 2021. The same year, the Schröder government was to send 4,000 troops to Afghanistan, following a demand from Washington. The decision shocked German opinion, the government was confronted with a vote of confidence in parliament and almost fell.

The Atlanticist ideology of the German political leaders, and of Angela Merkel in particular, attracted grudges. In January 2002, the Deutsche Mark got a new name: the Euro, which was bound on all members of the European Community. Germany reigned again on Europe, but as an agent of Washington. Joschka Fischer, German Foreign Minister, spoke of a "soft hegemony", Germany not imposing itself by arms, which, strangely, recalled the"soft power" American strategy.
Southern Europeans suffer from the economic domination of Berlin over Europe. Greece, the first great victim, has plunged into the abyss of Teutonic austerity since 2010. The demonstrations on the Syntagma square in Athens do not fail to recall the German occupation of Greece during the Second World War ...
In fact, Berlin reinvests the sphere of influence of Prussia and Austria: German companies return to Scandinavia, Baltic countries, Central Europe and the Balkans, wherever there has been a German presence before 1945. Berlin closed its Goethe Institutes in France and Latin America to re-open them in Central and Eastern European countries. The countries of Višegrad (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia) have become the eldorado of German industry, which finds low wages necessary for its growth. Unfortunately, the immigrationist positions of Angela Merkel in 2015 do not satisfy Visegrád group at all; as, moreover, ex-East Germans. The populations of these countries, former members of the Soviet bloc, have not undergone decades of American propaganda promoting "world cultures".
In September 2015, Chancellor Angela Merkel offered to welcome refugees from the Middle East. This triggered a tidal wave of immigrants running from the Middle East across the Balkans. More than a million refugees invaded Germany. In January 2016, in Cologne and several German cities during the New Year celebrations, more than 1,000 German women were raped or sexually assaulted by immigrants of North African or Arab origin. It was a shock for German population, almost enough to question the collective conditioning of decades of social-democratic angelism. The government tried to downplay the case, as the police was instructed to not register all complaints.
The anti-migrant Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) is emerging on the German political scene as Germany currently undergoes several Islamic terrorist attacks, sponsored by the Islamic State and executed by asylum seekers or "citizens" of Muslim origin .
The relations of Berlin with another Muslim country, Turkey of Erdogan, an important member of the NATO, are at the worst. The crisis between the two countries was born in March 2017. The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs had allowed himself to campaign in Germany for the referendum which was to strengthen the authoritarian power of Erdogan. German authorities had preferred, as in Holland, to forbid these meetings. The presence of thousands of Turks in the streets risked to increase the AfD vote ... Turkish president Erdogan ridiculously qualified  German government as "nazi". If Ankara no longer collaborates with Berlin to contain migrants or terrorist threats, the consequences will be catastrophic for Germany.
Angela Merkel also annoyed Moscow, working actively for the rallying of Poland and Eastern Europe countries to NATO, facing Russian tanks. Angela Merkel hardly criticized Moscow in 2014, when Crimea returned to Russian lap.
These positions are now difficult to assume: Donald Trump, from March 18, 2017, brutally presented the bill to NATO European members, meaning his disinterest in Europe.
Berlin is now alone against Moscow and other Europeans. London has just left Europe (Brexit) and deprives the Chancellor of a very useful ally against Southern Europe members. It is true that the French government of Emmanuel Macron, a divine globalist maneuver, shares the ideology of the German Social Democrats, but France is not even the shadow of itself. There is still the Benelux, Austria and the Scandinavian countries as last supporters, but they do not weigh heavily either.

Germany probably needs a new shock to wake up and act as an autonomous military and economic power. In 1945, it had taken bombardments and the invasion of the country by a foreign army to reboot German mentality...

South Africa : Will ANC survive to 2019 ?

After twenty-three years of power, in spite of beautiful democrat intentions, the record of the ANC governments in South Africa is mixed: the population is poorer than in the days of apartheid, the state is failing, Corrupted are politicians. Crime has exploded and racial hatred poisons everyday life. South Africa has become an ordinary African country.

The history of South Africa is that of rivalry between three groups: Africans, British origin citizens and Franco-Dutch: the Boers. African population was first enslaved by the army of Her Majesty. Despite the courageous resistance, and a defeat inflicted to the British army by Zulu warriors at the Battle of Isandhlwana (January 22, 1879), African populations were subjected to white power until the end of the twentieth century. Then, the British opposed settlers of Franco-Dutch origin: the Boers.
In 1835, the Boers left the Cape Colony to migrate to the interior of South Africa and escape British domination. It was the "Grand Trek&q…

China is ready to govern the world

"Older countries have glasses to see the future," might have said a Chinese proverb. President Xi Jinping drew inspiration from the legendary Silk Road, which ensured China's prosperity for a millennium, to launch the most ambitious economic development plan in the history of the 21st century: "One Belt One Road "(OBOR). On one side, a terrestrial "belt" which connects the interior of China with Europe, by Central Asia and Turkey; On the other side, a maritime "road" linking the Chinese coastline to the East of Africa, passing through the Arabic Gulf countries. It is the "New Silk Road" which formalizes the entry of China into the club of the great superpowers.

Indeed, OBOR materializes the political and commercial alliances that China, the rising power of the 21st century, has patiently woven for decades. For several years, Chinese companies have been building pipelines and fiber optic networks across Eurasia and Africa. Far from …

France and Australia are ready for a war in the Pacific.

France is a small country ... of 11 million square kilometers, thanks to the 200 thousand Exclusive Economic Zone that surround the smallest of its islets. French Polynesia alone comprises over 100 islands and atolls lost in the Pacific, an area twenty times larger than the United Kingdom. Yet, at the end of the Cold War, Paris was thinking of getting rid of these lost territories in the Pacific. Didn't the Noumea Treaty offer a referendum on the independence of New Caledonia for 2018 ? Today, the deal has changed. Paris has good reasons to keep its territories in the Pacific.

China is investing heavily in the area, offering scholarships in Chinese universities, lending money to finance infrastructure projects throughout the region. The beneficiary countries must accept, in return, Chinese immigrants. In Tonga Islands, over the last decade, the Chinese have taken over more than 80% of the stores.
China has, of course, also invested in French Polynesia, technical stop, for her, to …
