Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's fun to screw your country up for nothing, provided you make it, get this, a more laid back and fun place.

Here's one sane German's commentary on German govt under Schroder:


Schroder has been promised job in Gazprom, after he leaves politics.

Sure, that makes sense - German politician working in the largest Russian, post-commie kleptocrat mob-fused-with-former-KGB empire dealing in oil.

I mean, Schroder must have learned that from Bush with his Haliburton.

But hey! Germany is more laid back place!

Not dealing in oil - in gas, much more important in Russia.

But I am not sure it would happen - it is such an obvious bribe (Schroeder brings strictly NOTHING to Gazprom). If it did, it would speak very poorly of Schroeder - but on the other hand it would possibly put the spotlight on the stupid rationales for our senselle diplomacy viz. Russia.

And btw - welcome to eurotrib!
