Franz-Walter Stenmeier, Germany's current Foreign Minister, has just described NATO's behaviour towards Russia as "warmongering".|
Steinmeier pointed to the deployment of NATO troops near borders with Russia in the military alliance's Baltic and east European member states.
"What we should avoid today is inflaming the situation by warmongering and stomping boots," Steinmeier told Bild in an interview to be published Sunday.
"Anyone who thinks you can increase security in the alliance with symbolic parades of tanks near the eastern borders, is mistaken," Germany's top diplomat added.
Good to see Germany starting to get off its knees to Uncle Sam, a war-addicted has-been heading for bankruptcy.
