Ukraine War, September 15, 2022: We should never forget…Germany’s halting military support for Ukraine

Germany’s halting provision of military aid to Ukraine

There are a lot of things about Germany we should never forget.

Adolf Hitler’s wars of aggression.

The Holocaust and the millions of lives lost due to German barbarism in World War II.

The towering achievements of German culture.

The extraordinary accomplishments of German science.

The magnificent act of atonement represented by Ángela Merkel’s opening the country to more than a million Syrian refugees in 2015.

Germany’s acceptance of a million Ukrainian refugees since the Russian invasion in February 2022.

The fact that the slogan “Political change through Trade” (“Wandel durch Handel”) became an excuse for ignoring geopolitical realities in avid pursuit of commercial interests.

Germany’s blind faith in bettering relations with Russia and its policy of abject dependence on cheap Russian gas.

The construction of the Nordstream II gas pipeline, after the Russian invasions of Ukraine and its annexation of the Crimea in 2014.

The halting nature of the military aid Germany is providing to Ukraine, in the hour of the greatest challenge to our civilization since Adolf Hitler and World War II.

The lies and distortions and lame excuses Germany has offered for its very hesitant and delayed responses to Ukrainian requests for urgent military assistance.

Germany, through its halting military support of Ukraine, is leaving a bitter taste in the mouths of citizens in many NATO countries.
