The Ukraine issue is basically a Cold War leftover, and if you had been around when the Cold War ended - 1989 - you should know that it is the U.S.A. as a hegemon that seeks to dominate Ukraine, not the Germans.

The U.S.A. plays an utterly inglorious role in this. The Germans simply are the lackeys who have to pick up the dregs and clean the road again. They have to deal with the refugees and other social fallout. You should remember the Maidam demonstrations and the anti-European comments made by U.S. officials (a woman surnamed Nuland, for example). Even the Crimea issue is not a confrontation between the Europeans and Russia; it is one between the U.S.A. (and the U.K.) against the Russians.

Such confrontations happen when you are a member of an alliance under another country's domination.

Ukraine is the last link to the former Soviet Union which Nato wishes to incorporate into its alliance. If this intention wereabandoned there could be peace. The UKrainians don't belong into the E.U. They would be a serious liability and very instable as a member state. The Germans know that as they have had to foot the largest bit of the bill for the reconstruction of eastern Europe. They are not keen to take on board more countries similar to Rumania or Bulgaria. They are not even done mending the fences between the former East Germans and West Germans.

If anyone can make a valid comment in this matter it would be Mikhael Gorbachev. He has publicly stated many times that the West, i.e. the U.S.A. and the U.K., betyrayed him. That is what I believe too. The Soviet Union in its dieing days wanted to preserve territorial integrity while at the same time granting independence to most independent-minded member republics which were nothing but Russian colonies. But to preserve that territorial integrity you need to have friendly or at least neutral neighbours, such as the nominallyt independent but in fact Russian-occupied former East bloc countries such as Poland, Slovakia and so on. These states, however, were tempted into joining Nato, which was a breach of the agreement between the West and Mikhael Gorbachev.

The U.K. does not need an "incentive" to meddle in Ukraine. It is a perennial hegemon just like the Russians, the Chinese, the Usanians and even the French. For hegemons, the rise of any other nation is always a sign that their own power and clout over the world is diminishing. Thus they feel compelled to thwart any rise of others and constantly try to undermine the power of existing big rivals.

You've forgotten to mention Japan.

As for the Germans, they could be biding time. As for the Chinese you could be wrong, they appear more interested in their own survival and sphere of influence rather than conquering others. In many cases, Chinese have just simply migrated and acclimatized. If they can successfully acclimatize for a couple of generations there is no need or any incentive to undermine other systems. Today they like it in New York, they fly over there, tend to their businesses there, tomorrow they like it in Milan, they fly over there and enjoy the fashion and when they miss their Chinese cuisine, they simply return to China. Its been like that for many Chinese. For Chinese who can't afford, they are probably more engrossed with their livelihood rather than conquering others. So what's the incentive for a nation like that to take over another, creating more headache and greater deficit in goodwill? Also don't see the Chinese wanting to be like the Japanese with crazy propensity to stamp their superiority complex over others.

What a dumb point

Germany is a First-World country, not a Third-World dump. It is run by a lead ...

Germany

Germany, like the semi colonial world, is controlled by the Zionist banksters. The banksters have ranked them below the English speaking world and France and have placed limits on their military might.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.

Methinks you have lost the plot and are now talking about unrelated issues in an incoherent way.

Why did you claim I had forgotten Japan? We are basically discussing why the Germans are not like all those imperialists - the U.S. Americans, the Russians, the French, the U.K., the Chinese.

And no, the Germans do NOT secretly plan on setting up a new Reich again. That is humbug. There are, of course, Germans who secretly may plot to restore imperial Germany. There is in point of fact a conspiratorial group called "Reichsbürger". These individuals do not recognise the federal republic of Germany as a legitimate modern state. Because of the public's perception of them as a meace to society, they are being monitored and some have been found to break laws for which they have gone to jail. They are not more significant to the German society than are the K.K.K. to the U.S.A.

Unlike any other imperialist power or formerly imperialist power - unlike Britain, China, the U.S.A., France for example - the Germans have owned up for their past crimes and totally embarked on a peaceful role. The world can learn from the Germans; I do not know what the Germans could learn fro anyone else.
