A 16th Century Brain in a 21st Century Head

March 24th, 2014 - 10:40 am

Here we have the German Chancellor speaking forcefully or whatevs about the little dustup in Crimea:

“Fortunately, I like the rest of us have been able to leave the Cold War behind me,” Merkel told reporters in Brussels today when asked about her view of a renewal of the east-west divide. “I also think that history doesn’t easily repeat itself.”

After rejecting Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s southern Crimea region following the ouster of the former Soviet republic’s Moscow-backed leader, Merkel called on Putin’s government to return to the international fold. She reiterated her stance that “methods of the 19th and 20th centuries certainly can’t successfully resolve the conflicts of the 21st century.”

Merkel takes umbrage. Putin takes what he wants.

I can't believe she bought into the "wrong side of history" BS worldview.
Soviet refugees have been telling the US electorate "we come from your future" for decades. At the rate things are going the Armada will be sailing soon and then the Mongols come.
