Europe breaks with the "Anglo-Saxon world" through the mouth of Macron and Merkel

The split between a united Europe and the "Anglo-Saxon world" became so obvious that it was already officially fixed by the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Speaking in the Bundestag, the head of Germany said that the United States is no longer the “automatic defender” of the EU, and Europe itself will have to make a “big contribution” to its future. Otherwise, as a program, such a statement can not be called. Where will the Old World lead it, and are there any hopes for a rapprochement between the EU and Russia?




Here is what Angela Merkel specifically said during the debate about EU relations with the United States:

Europe is bound by values ​​with this superpower, despite all the differences of opinion. There is much in common, but there is no longer automatism in the fact that they, as during the Cold War, will play the role of defender of Europe.


The statement is somewhat crafty, since no one is going to attack Europe, and it itself does not need military protection, for example, from the Russian Federation. In this way, the German Chancellor simply fixes that yesterday’s allies disagreed on fundamental issues, and now everyone is for himself. As the saying goes, thanks to Donald Trump with his slogan "America First."

But what's next? Where and with whom will Europe go? We can form a few points from Merkel’s speech and the rest between the lines.

At first, the Chancellor’s speech can be considered a response to the extraordinary activation of Emmanuel Macron recently. The French president is clearly trying to pull the blanket of a pan-European leader to the side of Paris. And then Berlin made it clear that it was keeping abreast, and it certainly would not remain aloof from the political process.

Secondly, the inhabitants of the Old World are already openly starting to look at the Americans and the British with their Brexit, as at direct rivals. Two axes are already clearly visible: Washington - London and Berlin - Paris. In conditions of a large redistribution for markets and spheres of influence, their collision, in principle, is inevitable.

ThirdlyIt is on the basis of the above that the German Chancellor speaks of the need for a greater contribution of Europe itself to its own security and the acceleration of technological development. In practice, this may mean moving towards the creation of a single European army as opposed to NATO, where the United States dominates. Berlin and Paris will need their own armed forces and navy to defend their interests against the Anglo-Saxons. In addition, Merkel’s words about the outlined technological lag. Oddly enough, the market capitalization of leading European technology companies is an order of magnitude inferior to American and Chinese competitors.

And finally, the most basic conclusion concerning just China and the Russian Federation. The Chancellor noted the global importance of the trade war between China and the United States, as well as the "geostrategic strengthening of Russia." If you look objectively, it’s in the interests of Europe to prevent the Russian-Chinese alliance from forming, as President Macron honestly said earlier. In turn, the Europeans will seek to maintain the raw materials status of Russia, to slow down economic development and keep it in its sphere of influence. Warming relations may occur after the surrender of Donbass to Ukraine under the Minsk agreements.

From China, Berlin and Paris will try to get investments to replace the abandoned American technologies, as well as access to the Chinese market. At the same time, Germany and France will try not to “lie down” under Beijing, which is actively expanding its expansion into Europe, seeing in it a replacement for the American market.

Here is such a difficult alignment. For Russia, it would be most reasonable to spend oil excess profits on their own economic development and rearmament.

    And why not consider the next version of the EU’s armament against Russia? England, by the way, is departing. In case of victory of the EU, it will quickly rub in confidence in the EU, and in case of victory of Russia, it will become an ally of Russia, as in the 2nd World War. "World Government" plays a long game and slowly wants to set the peoples of Europe on Russia once again. Just almost all Europeans are opposed to Russia and everyone will want a Russian pie, not thinking that they can get "birch porridge."

      Europe today is not one to fight with Russia on its own! And she doesn’t need it. And the "world government", as it turns out, hasn’t been so global lately.
      As for relations between Europe and the Anglo-Saxons, then, if we turn to the history of WW2, we should rather, first of all (again together with the Germans) eliminate the main Anglo-Saxon “archers” on the continent - Poland and the Baltic states, and then calmly solve joint problems within the framework of EU-RF, without repeating any other mistakes of the past. Europeans and I are mutually needed to each other, like no other. No “friendship” with China or the United States will be as useful to Europe and Russia as interaction between each other. We have exactly what Europeans need, and they have what we need. That's all.

        And that is why the EU refuses to provide Opal and others for growth. gas to Europe? Take off the pink glasses. The EU has always hated Russia. In the 1920s, the Weimar Republic was even weaker, but accumulated strength and captured Europe. Now, from Muslim refugees, they can put together troops to march on Russia. Consider all the options!

          I am considering! soldier Opal is a slightly different question, and in my opinion - this does not contradict the fact, but rather confirms it. Who initiated this? - The United States and its satellites are Poles and Balts. I just wrote about this in the comments here on the website for this article -

          Europe dealt a treacherous blow to Gazprom, slashing itself.

          Take a look so as not to repeat ...
          PS .. and Muslim refugees in Europe, if they fight, it’s not for the Europeans for sure, but for something else and, apparently, not with the Russians ...

            Germany, as they say, is the main locomotive of the EU, which finances both Poland and the Baltic states from the pockets of the EU, and at the same time allows these countries to spoil themselves? Do you think the German capitalists are so helpless? The Germans in the 1940s could unite with Russia and capture the colonies of England and France, but for some reason they did not. Why will they do it now? Having a U.S. nuclear weapon in your country?

              In the 40s there were real ideological contradictions that are not there now. But today Germany, in fact, is an occupied country, here you are right, but that is why we must bet on Europe as a whole, and not just on the Germans. What has been done today with OPAL is, by the way, done by the Poles and the Balts exclusively in the interests of the USA, against the interests of the EU, and in Europe they understand this. North and South. they waited for the flow and were interested in it not only in "Old Europe", but also in Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia - these are the main allies of Poland within Europe. There have been so far, at least, because what Poland has done goes just against their own selfish interests. Everything inside the EU is very complicated now, both with respect to America, and with Brexit, and with the Russian Federation, and with gas ... This card must be quickly played out by Russian diplomacy on the "European theater of war", and not scratched turnips ...

    To "bull" against the United States, you need your own strong army. This is all "show off", she did not have long. The USA is not Russia, they do not forgive such a thing.
