‘I fight for Merkel’

Quotes of the Week:

“Why are we fighting in Afghanistan?”

As four more German soldiers are killed, and five others critically injured in Afghanistan last week, the German troops are asking their leader, “why are we fighting in Afghanistan?”

Some troops are now wearing a badge that reads:

‘I fight for Merkel’

At least 43 German troops have been killed and dozens more maimed/injured since they joined the foreign occupation forces in Afghanistan in 2002.

Germany’s National Zeitgeist: 80 percent of Germans want their troops to exit Obama’s War on Afghanistan

Some other  related quotes:

Bild Zeitung, Germany’s largest daily:

“They want the Chancellor, their ultimate boss, to finally find the clear words to put the war against the Taliban into black and white.”

My party has “growing doubts” about German presence in Afghanistan, said Ottmar Schreiner, a member of the opposition Social Democratic Party (SPD). “If things haven’t improved in Afghanistan by next year then I don’t see where a majority for a new extension of the mandate is going to come from.”

The Financial Times Deutschland:

“With every dead German soldier in Afghanistan, the calls for an immediate withdrawal grow louder. This reflex shows that the German public is still not clear about the character of the mission.

“The politicians are largely to blame. Since the beginning of the mission eight years ago they suppressed a realistic description of the situation… Deaths, injuries, battles and heavy weaponry — none of these suit the picture that was painted back then.”

Germany’s Berliner Zeitung:

“Why are German soldiers in Afghanistan at all? As the chancellor and her government are still sticking to the military mission there it is their duty to explain it. But she has failed to do so.

“This can be explained by her basic attitude – it is only worth talking about problems when they become virulent.

“In the case of Afghanistan this is particularly catastrophic. Because the government has failed to make its case in what is the biggest foreign policy and security policy challenge in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany.”

Germany is finally at war with its conscience. Obama’s America is yet to look up the word in a dictionary.

Leaving the Mortals Behind

US President and family leave the snowy continental US to the local mortals as they wing it to the warmth of Hawaii Volcanoes

Before leaving for Hawaii, however, he said in an interview with PBS Newshour:

“I think that people are justified in being disappointed about the outcome in Copenhagen.”

He added:

“What I said was essentially that rather than see a complete collapse in Copenhagen, in which nothing at all got done and would have been a huge backward step, at least we kind of held ground and there wasn’t too much backsliding from where we were.”

[Is he beginning to sound like his predecessor?]

How did you save the talks, Mr?

“At a point where there was about to be complete breakdown, and the prime minister of India was heading to the airport and the Chinese representatives were essentially skipping negotiations, and everybody’s screaming, what did happen was, cooler heads prevailed,” Obama said.

Prevailed to what end?

“We were able to at least agree on non-legally binding targets for all countries —not just the United States, not just Europe, but also for China and India, which, projecting forward, are going to be the world’s largest emitters,” he said.

Is a non-legally binding “agreement” worth the carbon paper it’s written on? Or was it achieved verbally?

Err….

Never mind your opinion as a president, please answer the  question in your capacity as a “law professor.”

This space is left blank for Prof Obama’s answer: __________________________________________!

Earlier Sweden’s Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren called the UN Copenhagen climate negotiations, which the US and China had colluded to undermine, “a disaster for the world.”

“I call this a disaster, it doesn’t at all match the needs of the world …,” said Carlgren.
