What is in store for the world? US Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed on 1.02.2021 that Iran was only a few months or even weeks away from possessing enough fissile material to build a nuclear bomb, which was reason for the USA and Israel to intervene militarily (1). He did not provide evidence for his adventurous claim.

Two days earlier, the Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS) recommended to the German government in a working paper that “in extreme cases” it would support a military strike by the USA and/or Israel against Iran if early negotiations on the nuclear agreement with Iran did not bring a solution (2).

Are the Germans to be persuaded to send fathers, sons and daughters alongside the USA and Israel into a war of aggression with unforeseeable consequences for the whole of humanity? This contradicts Article 26, paragraph 1 of the German Basic Law and the “Nuremberg Principles”.

What is the position of the German parliament and government on this existential question? The German people have the right to know. The fathers of the German Basic Law were unanimous on this point: War shall never again emanate from German soil! This consensus was expressed in Article 26, Paragraph 1 of the constitution. Does it still hold?

Would it not be the historical responsibility of Germany and its government to use all means to dissuade the friendly governments of the USA and Israel from a war of aggression in violation of international law and to seek a negotiated solution – instead of collaborating in a war crime?

In 2008, the German Chancellor stated before the Israeli Knesset that Israel’s security was “Germany’s reason of state” and that this should not remain empty words in the hour of testing. The term “reason of state” is understood to mean the principle that the state has a right to assert its interests, even in violation of individual rights, if this is deemed absolutely necessary for the good of the state.

The majority of the German people will not consent to war participation. The German citizens alone should decide on this and any other war participation in a referendum. It is high time not to leave such serious decisions to hazards.

The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity

Michel Chossudovsky

The “globalization of war” is a hegemonic project. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The U.S. military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.
