How comes you´re using that unfriendly words about her? After all, it was Merkel who addressed Iran, human rights issues in China and Russia right from the taking the oath as Chancellor. I don´t think that there´s space for reproaching her with failure in foreign policy, except maybe the lack of support for more German troops in Afghanistan.
Bravo for Merkel! And bravo for modern Germany! No country has done as much to redress past wrongs than Germany.
It’s a great country.
Not a fan of the “human rights must be spread around the world” club. Prefer the foreign policy of Metternich and Bismark myself.
I imagine there’s a lot more to her if she had the chance, but she’s boxed in to a large degree. No doubt, she’s more pragmatic when it comes to Russia, Belarus (There’s another sleeping problem), China, Iran, and even the threat of radical Islam.
