Merkel: "We will take more responsibility" for what is happening in the world

110
Berlin must take more responsibility for what is happening in the world, conveys RIA News Statement by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the CDU election meeting in Rhineland-Palatinate. Elections to the local parliament (Landtag) are scheduled for March 13.




“We will take more responsibility in the open world for what is happening outside our European borders,” Merkel said. “Germany will not be satisfied with the role of exporter of goods and factory builder.”

According to her, “it means more development aid, it means more uniform standards in climate protection, it means fair trade and much more that you cannot possibly feel in a closed society.”

The Chancellor noted that "Germany plays an important role in overcoming the migration crisis in Europe, but in this matter Turkey must take on joint obligations."

Neither Turkey nor Greece "should not tolerate the fact that in the maritime region between them will dominate the mafia structures of smugglers," Merkel said.

            From the text of the article
            Merkel: “We will take more responsibility in the open world for what happens outside our European borders,” Merkel said. “Germany will not be satisfied with the role of exporter of goods and builder of factories”

            Merkel, as a servant of the US State Department, as always, speaks in her zombie repertoire with respect to both Germans and Europeans - especially before the next elections in Germany.
            All her "respectable" words in practice crumbled to dust.
            Now Merkel is seeking her party to remain in power in Germany, while she herself expects to head the UN.

          Let us state that the experiment "a cook at the helm of the state" failed miserably!

          Dear forum users! Well enough to refer to the fact that V.I. Lenin did not say!
          In the work “Will the Bolsheviks Hold State Power?” (Written in late September – early October 1917), Lenin states: “We are not Utopians. We know that any laborer and any cook are not capable of immediately taking control of the state. In this we agree with the Cadets, and with Breshkovskaya, and with Tsereteli. ”

          The author here mentions the cook and the laborer in order to emphasize the primitivism of the thinking of his then opponents (which was exactly how the Soviet power was conceived of as the power of the “cooks”). However, he writes further: “But we differ from these citizens in that we demand an immediate break with the prejudice that it is to rule the state, to carry out the everyday, daily work of the administration in the state of only wealthy officials or from wealthy families. We demand that training in public administration be given by conscious workers and soldiers, and that it be started immediately, that is, all workers, the whole poor, immediately begin to be involved in this training ”(MSS, t. 34, p. 315).

          Well, about Merkel "We will take on more responsibility ..."
          Let me know who these WE are, specifically, surnames, please.

    Migrants are a funeral team not only for Germany and all EU countries, but also for the EU itself and for everyone, I HOPE for "tolerant" and "polygamous-trans-gender-different" "European values".
    The same Migrants will never accept debauchery and dressing guys in girl clothes until they reach adulthood.
    They will never accept suffered from the native Germans, not giving change to the rapists of their wives and daughters.
    They will only become impudent.
    And Merkelsha - well, she said, well, she "took care", something else from Germany sounded in the information field and what? They will not let them do their own politics, have their own "normal" army and their geopolitical interests.
    The United States will not allow Germany and the EU-Soviet countries to even try to solve problems with migrants, because the goal is the collapse of the EU and the food of the United States for another 15-20 years.

    An interesting statement.
    Until the last moment, Germany consciously refused to actively engage in politics; its role did not correspond to economic influence. Even within the EU, they felt uncomfortable, once again sought nothing to interfere without serious reason. They have been wary of this since the Second World War.
    And here it was actually declared "now we will be more active in foreign policy"

    The Germans already somehow tried to command the world, what came out of it everyone knows. You must be more modest, more modest. You better put things in order at home.
    Some kind of logic is illogical with Merkel, but what to take from her, a woman she is a woman. On the one hand, the Turks snap off the Turks so that they do not let the refugees through, then it takes responsibility for their arrangement. It's time to retire an old woman, brains fail.

    The photo for the article is valid. And so Germany, of course, could take on greater responsibility if it were an independent state.

    “We will take more responsibility in the open world for what is happening outside our European borders,” Merkel said. “Germany will not be satisfied with the role of exporter of goods and factory builder.”

    It seems that she is standing in the photo. lol Maybe that's why all kinds of nonsense is utterly irrelevant. fool Though with a healthy look I would look around and it is unlikely that such words would even come to km. On retirement, the diagnosis is unequivocal.

    Let him take more responsibility on himself.
    Let him take all the responsibility upon himself, only Germany will leave him alone. The Germans, whatever one may say, our real allies in the confrontation with the English-speaking African-Americans.
    See how the so-called neo-Nazis behave, and under what slogans they conduct their processions.
    What is wrong with the desire of a respectable citizen to cleanse his country from Uninvited guests?
    Imagine - the elected Chairman of the HOA suddenly got inspired by the ideas of humanism and invited pests from your nearest railway station to your house and populates them in your, specifically, your apartment.
    How are you feeling?
    How, how - that's where National Socialism is born.

    Still, for the Germans, the Second World War also did not pass without a trace. The color of the nation was destroyed by A. Hitler and the company. Now, some kind of schizophrenic alcoholic decided to save the Germans from extinction. Moreover, she decided to do this by completely destroying the German nation. Indeed, when everyone is happy with everything, when there is a lot of bread and butter and a house in the mountains, then no one is indignant and will not divide. And refugees are doing shit and working for good. Only the refugees forgot to ask whether they want it or not, or they also want to live in the mountains.
    What did this Frau do in her youth that Americans still pull her strings like a puppet?
