Gerhard Schröder denounces US occupation of Germany

+

In 2003, former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder opposed the US destroying Iraq, a destruction that the US justified by the role Iraq had played in the 9/11 attack and Iraq’s intention to bomb the U.S.A. with chemical ballistic missiles.

Schroder brought his country closer to the Russian Federation. Furthermore, he was the one that launched the construction of the North Stream in the Baltic Sea. His aim was to supply Germany with Russian gas, by-passing Ukraine (already unstable). When he bade farewell to political life, the former Chancellor became the President of the North Consortium. Then in 2017, he joins Gazprom.

In an interview granted to the German TV N-TV, Gerhard Schröder declared: “We cannot tolerate being treated like an occupied country. When I observe the actions of the US Ambassador in Germany [Richard Grenell], I’m under the impression that he considers himself an officer of a country under Occupation and not the ambassador of the US in another sovereign state”.

In an interview with Breitbart, Mr Grenell claimed taking part in German domestic politics and lending support to a particular camp.
