Germany and France have become the "twin pillars" of Europe

Since Britain left the European Union, Germany and France have become the "twin pillars" of Europe, especially Germany, which has extensive political and economic influence within the EU. But after the new Chancellor Scholz came to power, Germany's presence began to become weak, especially after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war, and the German government's top brass became more and more bewildered.

Recently, German politicians have repeatedly issued violent theories, making the outside world more suspicious of the ability of this German government. In a major speech on the future of Europe, Scholz set the tone for a profound change in Germany's EU policy, according to a report by French newspaper Le Monde cited by Reference News recently.

Notably: the report sees Scholz as a response to a speech by French President Macron back in 2017, and has crossed the red line on German EU policy over the years.

His speech was mainly twofold: firstly, he advocated further expansion of the EU to include the Western Balkans, plus Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, and other countries; secondly, he changed the current "one vote veto" of EU member states to a "majority yes" system. The second is to change the current "veto" of EU member states to a "majority system". In addition, Scholz also said he would promote the establishment of the EU's military structure and further integration of the military industry to form an armed force independent of NATO and with strong intervention capabilities.

Scholz's ideas would mean a fundamental change like the EU: a change in voting rights would mean that the EU could ignore the interests of small countries and be more decisive in dealing with some issues, but this would make many countries feel that they have no place in the EU, which would lead to further fragmentation.

Once it has military institutions, the EU will be upgraded from the original regional political and economic cooperation organization to a political, economic, security, and military cooperation organization, which will further hollow out NATO. The company's main goal is to provide the best possible service to its customers.

The content of Scholz's statement is the EU reform plan advocated by French President Macron; his predecessor, former Chancellor Angela Merkel, although in principle in favor of Macron's approach, never initiated the idea of changing the existing German policy on these issues, but Scholz directly proposed these ideas, which is surprising.

Equally surprising was German Foreign Minister Böhlberg. She recently said publicly at an event in Prague that Germany must sanction Russia to support Ukraine even if the German people take to the streets in protest because of skyrocketing energy prices.

Berber said bluntly that she would stick to her commitment to Ukraine, no matter what German voters think.

The comments sparked an uproar in Germany, as people could not tell whether she was the German or Ukrainian foreign minister, and many netizens called for her expulsion, saying that such "inside-out" behavior was unacceptable. The gymnast, a social activist, soon showed her unprofessionalism when she became the German foreign minister, often saying the wrong things in diplomatic situations.

We are not surprised by this situation in Germany; the new German government is a "stitching monster" that not only has to deal with external opposition forces but is also constantly fighting for power internally, especially in the case of Berberk's Green Party, which, for its party to have more say and influence in the ruling coalition, will, of course, will sell the performance. But for their political interests and the so-called "political correctness" principle, these senior German officials choose to sacrifice the interests of their people or other countries in the EU, which is a big surprise.

So, what is wrong with Germany when politicians are making outrageous statements? When a system that was running in an orderly manner suddenly appears to be stuck, then something must have gone wrong. Germany and the EU are no exception, whether Scholz or Berber, the word "bewildered" is not too much to describe their current situation.

Russia's assertiveness has directly penetrated the arrogance of some Western countries; irresponsible sanctions make themselves difficult to ride, which is the important reason why Germany is increasingly unintelligible!
