What US politicians REALLY think “cold feet“, “Bullshit“, “anxiety about the Germans” in Ukraine crisis
Munich – While in eastern Ukraine a bloody war that breaks the security conference in Munich the next dangerous conflict. A diplomatic battle of nerves around the question of whether the West should supply weapons to the government in Kiev. The enemies are actually allies: the US against Europe, particularly Germany.
Behind the soundproof doors of the conference rooms at the hotel “Bayerischer Hof” Americans speak downright derogatory remarks about the Germans.
Friday evening, shortly after 19 clock. On the sixth floor of the luxury hotel American four-star generals, diplomats and senior US officials meet after BILD information about a confidential conversation in the “Briefing Room” and pull on the German ago.
• “defeatist” cites a US Senator Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen (56, CDU), because they no longer believe in the victory of the Ukrainians. The word “German Defätistin” is repeatedly heard by IMAGE Information in this round.
• Obama’s top diplomat for Europe, Victoria Nuland called the journey of the Chancellor to Putin as “Merkel Moscow stuff,” another US foreign policy speaks of the “Moscow-bullshit” of Europeans.
• And US Senator John McCain talks himself into a rage: “History shows us that dictators will always take more if you let them. They will not let their brutal behavior dissuaded when you fly with them to Moscow -. Just as one is once flown in this city “
Merkel’s diplomatic initiative in Ukraine crisis is at the heart of American anger. The reason: Americans do not believe that Putin can be moved without massive pressure to an agreement. And pressure do not intend to build the Europeans.
“They fear damage to their economies, sanctions against the Russians,” said Nuland. “It pains me to see that our NATO partners now getting cold feet,” another US politician says according to BILD information.
► Obama’s close confidante Victoria Nuland is that einschwört their American counterparts in this opening evening of the Security Conference: “We can fight the Europeans, rhetorical fight against them …”
Several US politicians still seem to doubt arms shipments for Kiev. Whether that maybe “just a tactic,” so that Europeans finally make a “false promise” more pressure on Putin, one asks. “No, that’s not a tactic to drive the Europeans,” Nuland replied dryly. “We would send no four divisions in Ukraine, as the Europeans fear. It is a relatively moderate supply of anti-tank weapons. “
“But what are we to tell the Europeans because if we really decide on arms sales?” Asks a US Congressman. “What then is our story?”
► In the meeting also sits on the Nato commander, General Philip Breedlove. He replies: “We would not be able to deliver as many weapons that Ukraine can defeat Russia. This is not our goal. But we must try for Putin to raise the price on the battlefield to slow this whole problem so that sanctions and other measures to flourish. “
Again top diplomat Nuland switches that speaks fluent Russian and Dick Cheney served as national security adviser. “I would like to urge you to use the word defensive systems that we would deliver against Putin’s offensive systems”
► General Breedlove said the US politicians, as such weapons delivery would actually look like: “Russian artillery kills by far the most Ukrainian soldiers. Therefore, it would require systems with which they located and the fire can be answered quickly. The communication of Ukrainians is either disrupted or completely absorbed. That’s why they need tap-proof communication device. Then I am not going to talk about some anti-tank missiles, but we see massive supply movements from Russia to Ukraine. The Ukrainians need the ability to turn off these transports. And then I would add a few small, tactical drones. “
Brisant: The planned weapons and systems are technically demanding that US troops would train the Ukrainian army probably. Thus, the United States would intervene with their own troops in the conflict.
So much controversy between Europeans and Americans, it has recently been at the Munich Security Conference 2003 – just before the start of the Iraq war. Morning travels Chancellor Angela Merkel to US President Barack Obama in Washington. The two have much to discuss …
