Postwar German foreign policy did not need any help to make catastrophes.

Germany has had the same basic foreign policy objective for at least the last forty years: To get someone else to pay for defending the D-Mark exchange rate.

This is, admittedly, preferable to a foreign policy commitment to get the Sudetenland and Danzig zurück ins Reich. Unfortunately, that is not a particularly impressive bar to clear.
