Frédéric Lemaitre warns of a German Sonderweg

Writing in Le Monde the paper's Berlin correspondent Frédéric Lemaitre warns of a German Sonderweg (exceptionalism) for which he cites three examples: The country's decision to abandon nuclear energy by 2022, the German stance on the euro rescue programs and the security policy such as Libya or the decision to massively reduce the number of German troops without having consulted with its neighbours. Lemaitre complains Germany engages into those unilateral decisions which have obvious consequences for many and sometimes all other EU countries without even realizing those consequences.
