Message to Merkel - Germany Can Never Lecture Russia

Considering 20th century history, Germany's chancellor would do well to keep her mouth shut rather than attack Russia's positions

Angela Merkel recently told her Christian Democratic party that she would lift the sanctions imposed on Russia over its role in the Ukraine crisis and its annexation of the Crimea peninsula  “rather today than tomorrow”,  but the decision would have to be based on the facts on the ground.

Frau Merkel, you are not a teacher, you are the head of the country we defeated in May 1945.

That’s a historic fact. We ripped your military to pieces, we reduced your country to dust.  We liberated the death camps you built.

Those are historical facts.  

The United States offered to plough up the ground under Berlin and sow it with weeds – just as the Romans did with Carthage, but Russia opposed this and Berlin is still there, a historical fact.    

Russia allowed the two Germanies to reunite in 1989. I was against that idea, foreseeing even then what you, the reunited Germans, would do:  

In 1990, you airdropped weapons to Croatian separatists, in 1991-1995 the former Yugoslavia was hacked to pieces with your help. Then you took Kosovo from Serbia, and now here we go again, you are shaking hands with Kiev as it destroys Donbass.

And you would preach to us, Angela Merkel?
