“History teaches us that when Germans and Russians walk hand in hand both nations and all Europeans benefit. The more often Putin and Merkel talk to each other the better it is for everyone,” Gorbachev told Bild daily.
The former Soviet leader also added that in his opinion both Russians and Germans could be proud of the accomplishments they achieved after the end of the WWII.
“Cooperation gave a forward momentum to both of our nations. Our good relations are priceless capital that should not be wasted. Moreover, we should do everything to add to that capital, especially in these difficult times.”
Putin is pulling all the stops in order to promote the dissolution of NATO. While Obama looks like a blithering idiot to the world, Putin dusts off the Western media darling of the Soviet Union that sold his own country out to push for alliance between Russia and Germany. Poland should be extremely wary – things don’t usually work out so well for Poland when Germany and Russia get cozy. With US Defense Secretary Ash Carter saying coalition airstrikes will continue with no coordination with Russian airstrikes, and the pushing of this alliance on Putin’s part, watch for a non-US coalition aircraft to be struck down. With it not being a US aircraft, Obama will do nothing in order to avoid upsetting his prized Iran nuclear deal. NATO will fracture. -OP
