The Merkel Question

Quintas Dias.  Are Merkel and the Germans waking up finally as to who the real enemy really is?  Let us not forget post WWII, Germany had been bombed flat.  Her people were starving and her economy was in ruins,  and most of her habitable structures were ruined.  The US ensnared Germany’s post-war economy within American financial structures, dominating it for years.  The Americans also dominated Germany’s post-war foreign policy.  Germany was NATO’s first member.  Germany was turned to face the very real Soviet threat.  Germany’s government officials became American whores and sops.

Let me digress.  The Americans in post-war Germany, on the whole conducted themselves honorably, and did much to restore German pride, industry, and German confidence at considerable American expense in fortune.  Admittedly, the Americans had self-serving interests in maintaining Germany as a bulwark against Stalin’s machinations in invading and occupying all of western Europe.  The Americans sustained Berlin during the Berlin crisis when the Soviets attempted to subdue Berliners by blockading Germany’s communications, imperiling some 3 million people with imminent starvation.  The Berlin Airlift was a magnificent example of American exceptionalism.  Many American airmen died in accidents resulting from the grind of air operations in feeding, clothing, and heating Germans and their homes during the brutal German winter.
Germany was a foundational plank of the creaky European collective.  Germany’s economy revived postwar and Germany became an economic powerhouse.  Germany was the centerpiece of superpower conflict for postwar domination of foreign affairs.  Germany and American foreign policy vis the Soviets despite some rankling differences was pretty much in lockstep until the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the reincorporation of East Germany with the German polity.  And then what happened.  The Soviet threat was now nonexistent.  American forces in Germany had no further purpose.  The Americans withdrew much of their armed forces.
Germany and Germans began to charter a more independent course in world affairs.  Germany was cautious about engaging its military in American and UN foreign adventures until NATO expanded further east and into Afghanistan.  Then the set piece of players on the chessboard began to change, and subsurface strains within the North Atlanticist union began to surface.  Germany’s post-Soviet relations with Russia were constructive, stable and peaceful.  That is until the Americans targeted the Ukraine as  a pivot to destabilize Russia with.  The fall of the Ukrainian government, the descent of the Ukraine into chaos, and near civil war has reset the entire German/American and the German/Russian relationship.
Putin has conducted a remarkable post-Soviet collapse foreign policy.  He has refused to be provoked to invading the Ukraine or in reneging on Russian obligations associated with Russo-German trade arrangements.  Moreover, he has led a stunning drive in  creating and sustaining alternative markets and alliances with emerging nations to offset American and western preponderance of power in financial, economic, and diplomatic affairs.  BRICS offers severe challenges to US dollar, military, and economic dominance.
There is credible evidence to suggest that Merkel and Germany, a key player in the reset of European affairs after the collapse of the Soviet Union is keenly aware that Russian and Germany are mutually dependent on each other, and have much to offer for a peaceful and stable trade and diplomatic relationship, which would benefit Europe in general.
However, the Illumines cannot have an independent Germany surface only to wreak the Illumines long laid plans for instigating a third world war and a global government.  Twice in the 20Th century, the Illumines have maneuvered Germany and Russia in an attempt to destroy both nations totally, and nearly succeeded.
Apparently, the issue of German gold held hostage by the American and Illumine dominated Federal Reserve private banking cartel, the future of German trade with Russia, Germany’s dependence on Russian fuel, and the threat of a German imbroglio in a new European war is driving a cautious Merkel to reassess the German/American relationship.  Observers of the
Russian and German dance speculate that perhaps Putin has co-opted Merkel to the Russian point of view, and perhaps has dangled the advantage of a German partnership in BRICS as a measure to wiggle out from underneath the American Atlanticist suffocating yoke.
That Merkel is drifting closer to Russia and appears to be frustrating the Americans has enormous implications for the world.  If a German/American reset occurs, it signifies there are hidden forces at work subverting the intentions of the Illumines.
The world needs to step back from previously held views on Russia, and should encourage a further German/Russian rapprochement based on mutual respect, and mutual interests in maintaining the European peace and sustainable trade.
If this is possible, then the Illumines will be spinning around with the notions that perhaps the world has matured and realized who the main threat to humanity is, and that in reality, the Illumines are paper tigers.
