This does not come as a surprise. Once again the Obama administration was going in the wrong direction, making a huge mess that now needs cleaning up.


Outgoing German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has given an interview to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung in which he has slammed Western policy on Syria.

According to Steinmeier he always called for cooperation with President Assad’s government in Syria only to face rejection from the ‘regime change’ coalition in Washington and Paris.

Steinmeier’s claim is probably true, but it does him little credit. In truth it is typical of the way he conducted Germany’s foreign policy as Foreign Minister. On Ukraine, Syria and Russia he repeatedly dropped hints that he disagreed with the West’s policies. He then as German Foreign Minister unswervingly carried out the same policies he was privately criticising.

Steinmeier is now due to become German President, the post he might have been working towards all along. It remains to be seen whether as President he finds the courage to articulate his opinions, which he conspicuously failed to find as Foreign Minister.

And as president he will fall under the same control as the current one. Seems a convenient claim to make given the timing.

If he becomes president he will likely fall under the same control.

That's what they do.

Now anybody that is against endless war and NWO goals was put in office by Russia. The left really hated fake grassroots movements funded by billionaires, until they became one.

To be fair, what else should Steinmeier have done? Resign from office and give up any influence?

It is also worth noting that he isn't alone at all, but "disagreeing" with the Pax Americana isn't exactly easy as a German politician.

He is a pragmatist. Still a lefty, but a pragmatist - and the world needs more of that. If he becomes President he will stay inconvenient... Americans won't like it.
