Recently, in Leningrad: Links-2-3-4 HEY!!!



You seem to be up and running again.


Like it or not, Rammstein probably is the most popular rock band in Germany and Russia. Links 2-3-4 in St.Petersburg, if Stalin knew that. Is it really so easy as it seems to let people shout Heil instead of Hey?


"middle position" reminds me of the term Mittelmächte at the start of the 20th century :-)

Honestly there is no reason for Germany to trust either America or Russia. And little more regarding France and Britain for that matter.

We should instead focus on cementing central Europe as our iron workbench (I like the German term 'Eiserne Lunge' far better, is there something like this in English?).

Only when we have come to the limits of this approach we could make use of the fact that Putin has already impaired the significance of national borders in Europe :)
