Anyway, Germany pays the bill, so they'd better shut up! Roll eyes
Really ? I don't recall Germany ever paying 540 billion Euro of war reperations.
Long live the majestic twins of Poland, who save Europe and the whole world from Germany (whose economy makes Europe go around)
European economy goes around thanks to USA, not Germany. And Europe would be much better of if Germany and its Axis allies like Hungary wouldn't ravage it in WW2.
I think the Guenter Verheugen was thinking of efficiency in the functioning of the EU apparatus, rather then German world domination - The year is 2007, not 1939.
Germany is full of arrogant nationalism, the belief that they are better then the rest of the world. It manifests itself in many forms, Nazism is just one of them. You can find the belief that Germany is better then the rest of Europe in many German political movements.
So Germans still run concentration camps, do they? You are full of it.
Poor stannis, still unable to engage in rational conversation.
While Germany is not engaging in that sort of behaviour it certainly allows traditional discrimination of minority groups and its arrogant nationalism now manifests itself in silly claims of "Germany funding Europe"(welll they destroyed it in the first place), Germans as "victims of WW2", and "Germany is best suited to dictate others what to do". German press if full of slogans that "Germany must educate others" "They haven't grown to level of Germany" etc.The typical German attitude of arrogance and nationalism.
In the Eurasianists’ view, it was Tatars – to be precise, the Mongols of the 13th century – who laid the foundation of Russian statehood, culture, and, to some degree, even ethnicity.
