Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Annalena a pain in the ass, not just for Lavrov, but more so for Scholz. 😁

She announced the delivery of tanks for the war in Ukraine ... a few days before the Chancellor made the decision. The condition depended on the cooperation of the White House to deliver Abrams tanks. These decisions are not made by the Minister of Defense, but the responsibility of the Chancellor in war time. No decision making role for Ms. Baerbock.

It is quite natural to say we are at war with Russia. These are quotes of what she heard from Blinken and the military of the Pentagon and Stoltenberg. The war narrative for the outside world is a different one of course ... a true warrior with balls. Fearless Amazon well versed by the Atlantic Council ... Washington must be proud,

Annalena Baerbock's message to America: She's in sync with Biden ... not with the German voter.

Baerbock not in sync with the German voter?
You'd be surprised. The German voter is growing up. People of my generation are instinctively pacifists, and I respect that, but they now acknowledge that Germany can not continue to be an economic giant and a geopolitical midget. And the following generations recognise that Germany has an obligation to pull its weight.
