Germany As Leading Power

EUROPE - The EU should play a “geopolitical role” and therefore “close ranks” and step up its militarization, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz demands in an op-ed published in the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung. He promises “concrete proposals” in the next few months and is already demanding the abolition of the right to veto on foreign policy issues, which enables smaller states to protect their vital interests against the pressure of the powerful member states. A similar view was recently expressed by SPD Chair Lars Klingbeil. “After nearly 80 years” of alleged “restraint,” Germany should claim “the role of a leading power,” the SPD-Chair demanded. This would “require tough decisions by Berlin.” Klingbeil also called for massive rearmament of the Bundeswehr. Scholz and Klingbeil are worried because the developing and emerging countries are refusing, to a growing extent, to follow the old West and are pursuing their own independent policy. The call to engage in “geopolitical” activities in the future comes at a time of rapidly growing poverty in the EU.

The call for abolishing the right to veto was recently reiterated by SPD Chair Lars Klingbeil in a speech on June 21, where he said that because the EU “must be capable” of “acting rapidly,” it must “abolish the principle of unanimity, for example in foreign, financial and fiscal policies.” From Berlin’s perspective, it is central: “Germany can only be powerful, if Europe is powerful.” Therefore, Germany must, “as the leading power …massively promote a sovereign Europe.” Germany now has – “after nearly 80 years of restraint – a role in the international system of coordinates.”

Germany, today, “is, to a growing extent, at the epicenter.” “We should fulfill these expectations.” “Germany must aspire to become a leading power,” the SPD chair insisted. This “new role as a leading power,” however will “require tough decisions from Germany – financial as well as political.” “We must transform structures, and renegotiate budgets.” Particularly the military needs to be strengthened, for example, with the Scholz government’s €100 billion “special fund.” This means “also seeing military force as a legitimate political means,” alleges Klingbeil, who is declaring the accelerated militarization a “peace policy.”

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
