"It is necessary to stop hiding your head in the sand": Germany calls on to respond to US threats

The United States does not understand the rationale for imposing its own customs regulations and sanctions against countries and companies that are not happy with it. Therefore, Europe needs to stop burying its head in the sand and start building anti-American alliances capable of decisive responses. Written about this by the authors of the German edition of Der Spiegel.


The publication notes that the United States opposes several projects at once, such as the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, the TikTok mobile application, by Huawei. At the same time, Washington cannot convincingly and clearly explain what their danger is, except that they are Russian and Chinese.

At the same time, the United States, in pursuit of these companies, moved from political compromises to direct threat tactics. If earlier in international politics it was customary to discuss relevant topics and seek compromises, taking into account the interests of different parties, now the United States is using threats, increasing customs duties and imposing sanctions.

At the same time, the authors note, it is no secret to anyone that the whole point is in the economic dominance of the United States over other countries.

TikTok owners are literally forced to sell the company to a competitor, Microsoft, under threat of a ban. But when the US Treasury Department ultimately receives this money, it means that this is nothing more than a robbery with the use of blackmail. Like TikTok, US national security is threatened by companies such as Mercedes, BMW and Volkswagen from Germany, as well as Bordeaux wines from France. German ports are threatened with destruction for cooperation with the builders of Nord Stream 2

- writes the edition.

According to the authors, if the United States does not understand the reasonable arguments, then it is necessary to introduce countermeasures, for example, to increase customs duties on American liquefied gas, refuse to purchase American fighters, and prohibit entry into Europe for those involved in the imposition of American sanctions. In addition, Europe must become independent from other countries, conduct trade operations in euros, not dollars, making the European currency strong.

(...) one cannot even silently look at how the United States imposes unilateral sanctions and increases customs duties. It is necessary to give tough answers to this - including introducing retaliatory sanctions

- offers a German magazine.

        Whoa! Are the vassals plotting a revolution ?! I wonder what the US will answer to this?
        In general, it is high time to shake off this striped tick from the body of Europa. The United States will not go to a direct military conflict. Although, they will be able to arrange terrorist attacks against key politicians in Europe. But this brazen robbery on a global scale cannot continue indefinitely.

        Can you clarify what exactly Russia has learned "over these years"? How to store your gold and foreign exchange reserves in dollars and other Anglo-American securities? How to deal with portfolio investments, instead of investing free money in the development of industry? How to sell your assets to foreign corporations (VAZ is an example)? And by the way, the word "idiology" is spelled with "e", ideology.

          Actually, these "games" are pretty fed up (as a result, only we pay). To accelerate the "maturation" of the EU, it is necessary to supply the "Ukrainian transit" of gas for preventive maintenance and repair on the territory of the Russian Federation. It seems that on the eve of autumn this will affect our sworn "partners" more effectively than persuasion and recommendations. As for the article, the "Wishlist" in it is correct, but it is desirable that the execution be fast and decisive.

    Yes, the outcome of the story with Tik-Tok, SP-2 will show whether Germany will be the new center of Europe's sovereign policy, or will not decide on independence.
    And the huge economic effect for the countries of old Europe from SP-2 at a time when competition with Asia is becoming more and more fierce cannot be disregarded.
    I think that the United States is most of all, to animal horror, afraid of the emergence of a strategic alliance Germany-Russia-China. But its contours are more and more clearly visible. In recent months, so many complimentary articles on Russia have appeared in the Chinese press that there have not been in the entire previous year. But the press in China is like TASS in the USSR - practically the official position of the political leadership. Not to mention hints at joint new infrastructure projects.
    Yes, and the "poisoning" of Navalny, I think, was also an attempt to create an excuse for stopping SP-2

        Not wrong, it's fear. In them, the horror of the Anglo-Saxons was driven into the subcortex by aerial bombs that erased their cities to zero. I am not going to discuss the issue - these are the Foshists, and they themselves jumped. It makes no sense because everything is correct. However, do not forget that 90 percent were ordinary people. That does not remove one iota from the German society of guilt for crimes on the eastern front, which they are now diligently trying to forget. We must not forget about this and we must clearly understand that for Europeans to this day the Slavs are no better than the blacks. Everyone remembers about the zoo with people in cages in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

      This does not mean anything, because we know well that the Chinese leadership pursued a two-faced policy back in the days of the USSR, and even now it would be a big mistake to rely on their decency - they will throw us for a sweet soul as soon as they dominate the world in the economic plan. We must not forget about this, and do everything so that we do not have Chinatowns at all in any city or village. As for politics, it is unlikely that it has changed much among the Chinese, if they still pray for Confucius, and not for Marx.

        They should not forget, for that and their own head should be on their shoulders. And all cooperation should be viewed precisely from the position of equal mutual benefit. But an economic and military, political alliance is very possible. You just need to soberly assess both our own and Chinese steps.
        But about the duplicity of the Chinese position during the Soviet era is very controversial, because it was after the Khrushchev thaw that China accused us of the revisionism of Marxism (which, in fact, was true). So there both sides were good ...

As for the Chinese, more than once I had the opportunity to communicate with them and even observed them in their natural habitat. No, they do not consider others to be not people, they are just very determined to consolidate within themselves. That is, it is correct to call it nationalism, not Nazism. And business with them must be done with this nuance in mind. Only a clear economic, political, military benefit. No gambles, just accurate calculation.

              In my opinion, the problem was that the state border of the USSR and the PRC was drawn not along the middle of the river, as is customary for example in Europe, but along the Chinese bank, back in imperial times, which in the communication of the two socialist states was perceived by the Chinese as an offensive belch of imperialism, when China in moments of weakness was torn by all and sundry

        I also remember these snide comments, etc. But Russia and China were simultaneously building up their gold reserves and are trying to get away from green bills in mutual settlements ... we will fill up the dollar sooner or later, it is absolutely impossible .. hi
        Putin has good advisers and he does not disclose their names .. And they keep quiet and do the right thing!

    It is necessary to stop hiding your head in the sand ": Germany calls on to respond to US threats

    To meet the challenges of the United States, you need to be approximately equal "partners" in the economic, military and political spheres. And around there are only "dwarfs" who are simply milked as they want. The USSR was at least some kind of counterbalance to this evil empire, but now there is no counterbalance. China clearly does not yet reach this level, and there are doubts that it will ever reach this level ...

    It doesn't matter, if such an idea is voiced in the Bundestag, then yes. And then some idiot in a jaundiced spiegel-vili naproseikal and chto. The German center for making decisions remains unshakable ----- sanctions.

    The Germans, having weighed all the pros and cons, have long ago decided in favor of Russia. They understand that the Russians, having laid the thread, will not dictate their terms. If the United States comes with LNG, then neither Stockholm or The Hague will be able to do anything. There will be American laws. As elsewhere.

      They understand, of course, but the USA and Israel are unlikely to surrender such a cash cow without a "fight." They are terribly afraid of the union of Germany with Russia! . Who skimmed the cream after World War II?

    The US is saving the EU from cheap Russian gas, and they are still holding back.
    When sanctions are written into the Pentagon's budget, what can be negotiated, I don't understand?

    The United States does not understand the rationale for imposing its own customs regulations and sanctions against countries and companies that are not happy with it. Therefore, Europe needs to stop burying its head in the sand and start building anti-American alliances capable of decisive responses. Written about this by the authors of the German edition of Der Spiegel.
    Well, let the Germans show how it is necessary "with our lard, but according to someone's musals", and then, you see, Moscow will stop expressing "concern" and "regret".
    Although the former is more likely than the latter.
    Sometimes Lavrov wants to be called "Mr. preoccupied regret."
    But in our past history there were people who were called "Mr. No".

    In Germany, it seemed to me, there is indeed dissatisfaction with the foreign and domestic policies of Merkel. I talked with ordinary Germans, and they do not understand why they should buy American democratic gas more expensive than totalitarian gas from us. They are also unhappy with the influx of refugees and the costs of their maintenance. And the tax burden for a normal working person is very heavy. But whether this discontent will spill over into something really decisive is also a question. The image of the enemy of democracy is very firmly entrenched in Russia.

      It is not “thoughts” that are important, but the real strategic intentions and capabilities of Germany. According to the logic of Washington, it is enough for the gas to cease to be "Russian", i.e. Germany must solve the problem.

    Inspired by the letter of the Zaporozhye Cossacks to the Turkish Sultan, laughing German workers in the port city of Sassnitz, located on the island of Rügen in Germany and currently involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, sent an open letter to the White House "to the President of the World Power of America"
    The workers believe that the construction of the gas pipeline should be completed in accordance with the rule of law in all European countries.

    This initiative of German workers and local residents became known to the federal government and Chancellor Angela Merkel, the portal nordkurier.de reported.

    We want to talk to Trump on a purely human level so that he can get an idea of ​​the situation on the ground. The workers treat him with respect, as he represents the United States, - said Christine Zilmer, a local politician from the CDU party, on this event.

    Economically, the United States and Germany are a single entity. Therefore, most likely, there is a bargaining over who will dispose of the SP-2. Naturally, the Americans, those same old cowboys from the Wild West, want to take everything for themselves, and leave the Germans only a payment for the territory on which the gas storage terminals are located, as well as service personnel. However, there is a tendency in the United States to redistribute profit, we see this in the example of the next presidential campaign, when young representatives of the US political elite are completely excluded from it. Simply put, young people are offended that old people still do not want to share the capital they have earned, and besides, they are pursuing a misanthropic policy of extermination of the population in the world, primarily in Africa and Eastern Europe. Supposedly, Germany is their base point in Europe.
    With Russia, everything is already clear on this issue. Losses of hundreds of billions of dollars have already become customary for this country and its people, which are completely separated from the profits of oil and gas producing concerns and receive only handouts in the form of an annual "increase" to their pension of 1000 rubles. or unemployment benefits, so as not to play in the box right away, and is also forced to endure bullying by various structures that openly support the country's existing dependent on everyone, primarily those controlling the media. However, if this money is taken out of Russia, i.e. taken away, it means that they appeared somewhere. Nothing in the world is annihilated without a trace, especially the large dollar amounts that are not at all like "elementary particles".
