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

Be that as it may, your choice of term is unfortunate.

A major point of contention in this conflict is the role of Germany as employer of last resort (or not, as the case has been for the past two decades). Given that Germany is a major player in the conflict, and given that German influence is argued here to be highly malign, comparisons with the Nazi era are - ah - not helpful.

Particularly when Germany isn't actually behaving like 1930s Germany - it's behaving like 1920s France.
