    Was there any question that Germany is the dominant power in the EU? I’m not sure this is a revelation. Germany can argue that their economy is driven by “domestic demand,” but wait until the Euro collapses and they have to return to the Deutsche mark and it takes $2.00 to get a Deutsche mark versus $1.35 for a Euro now. Then we’ll see how well their domestic demand carries them. France leaves itself vulnerable to insults. The French are worthy of being insulted.

    As long as they continue to be pacifists who refuse to share the burdens of enforcing the international system, they are free-riding, Lotus-eating slugs. Okay. So they had a bad day 1933-1946. Get over it for heaven’s sake and grow up.

    I’m sure the Brits and French are fine with this. (sarcasm).

    I wonder how much of this is due to the bogus deal that was cut with Iran?The heavy sanctions are even now being cut back.This has allowed Germany to resume business with the regime in Iran.
    How much of this economic boom is the result of this trade?
    Germany will do for the Ayatollahs what Wall Street did for the Nazi’s in the 1930’s,help them make war against their neighbors in the future!But hey,what the heck,business is business & who cares about the future if a profit is available today!
