Of course, for a beginning, as a German born in 1939, I am not enrtitled to give any comments.
But, secondly, I think it was about time to give sound having watched the development of world policy or politics - as you would like to put it.
During the period of Cold War when the wall was erected on August 13th, 1961 I served in the Bundeswehr, and all the draftees got their service prolongued by another three months.
It was then that I realized that there had to be something worth defending - against whom I didn't know yet.
I hadn't realized that only five years after after World War II the US were involved in another war -the Korean. And the effects are prevailing up to now...
When Vietnam started, I really started a lot, a load of thinking - trying to imagine what a great nation might imply engaging in such a tragedy.
Gulf War No. 1 (Was it Desert Storm? Bush Senior?)
Present-day gulf warship with no end to be seen and a cost of 10 billion dollars a week.
In between the engagement in Afghanistan, arming the Taliban against USSR fighting them.
To put it bluntly: The United States have deserved anything that is being done or has been done already by their actions fostering the forces which just suited them. You armed the Taliban (against USSR), you armed Saddam (against Iran), and your only concern was getting hold of the world's greatest supplies of oil. So George Double-U Blockhead was an ideal successor to his father.
What I want to tell is, that I think it is about time, that an Afro-American citizen should become the next President of the United States. It would even be better if a native American - a Red Indian - became your new President.
Don't take me wrong: I love America. My sister-in-law is American but has lived in Europe for almost 50 years...
