Germany warned of war in Europe on Monday, with vice chancellor Sigmar Gabriel stating the continent was being “dragged” into a “smoldering conflict” with Russia over Ukraine.

Gabriel—at an event commemorating World War I with French Prime Minister Manuel Valls—warned of resurgent nationalist forces both within Europe and “in its neighborhood”.

He said that good news several months ago from Ukraine—including an end to bloody violence against protesters—had since given way to “an ongoing military confrontation” and the realization that “Russia is apparently willing to let tanks cross European borders.” …

“Russia is apparently willing to let tanks cross European borders.”

The Germans must be claiming trademark on the idea.

Globalists and the sodomite EU hate nationalism and nationalists.

He said that good news several months ago from Ukraine—including an end to bloody violence against protesters

The Globalists and their puppet junta in Kiev will have no problem using bloody violence against pro-Russian protestors.

France had already surrendered by the time Mr Gabriel had finished speaking.

A lot changes in five days when it comes to rhetoric, doesn’t it.

No it won't.Power is at least as important to this latest incarnation of the USSR as is money.

Sounds like Germany has a bit of catching up to do if they want to be a credible deterrent to Moscow. But so far, Europe is nothing but a power vacuum as they, like the Democrats, REALLY BELIEVED that we were in the “The End of History” as some dunce cap was saying in the 1990s, as well as Bush-41 talking about a “New World Order”.

Looks like both were wrong - business as usual - those that have the (military power) have the power, period.

They've been counting on Uncle Sam to keep the barbarians at bay while pretending that peace was the result of Europeans suddenly becoming more civilized than non-European untermenschen. The moment the US pulls out of NATO, the international news section is going to become much more eventful, crowding out the human interest items that now predominate.

In protest of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine, Germans are burning Russian oil and gas now!

You’re the one obsessed with sodomy. It’s in nearly all your posts. Do you think of anything else?

I’d recommend that everyone on this thread rent or purchase the DVD “The Soviet Story.” It is eye opening and many here would appreciate the history. When you do view it, your eyes will open to the alignment between Hitler and Russia, even to the point of splitting up the continent. Sadly, we were fooled into believing that Russia was an ally, when in reality they only turned on Hitler when they realized that they could not achieve their goals and remain aligned with him.

Their brutality was equal to Hitler’s. In fact, they starved 6-7 million Ukranians in one winter season (32-33.) Putin has every plan of re-uniting the USSR, even if he has to utilize the same tactics.

This is truly a frightening time in history and we should all be wary.....

Power and the projection of same—has been a watchword of History. The maps have been and will be changed by military and political power—Nothing has changed but the tools we use. Chariots are now Tanks, Cavalry is now airplanes, etc... It has been the same since Sargon I built the worlds first empire 5,000 years ago. We might like it to change—but it will not. Nationalism is on the rise at this point in time so nations better re-arm if they wish to keep our another would be Napoleon. Maybe Obama’s weakness has shown them that they must fight for their own freedom.

“Russia is apparently willing to let tanks cross European borders.” …

“Let” tanks cross European borders - as opposed to “order” tanks across European borders?? You have to wonder if that is an error in translation.

Tanks are very curious. They’ll sneak across the border if you aren’t watching them.
