Cyprus - An Interesting Analysis
A guest post from Edward Spalton.
An interesting analysis. Countries do not have eternal friends or eternal enemies.
They have eternal interests which they pursue in different ways in different times.
Something which the UK government, fixated on the EU and the "special
relationship" with America as ends in themselves, appears to have
Germany, of course, has formed much of the architecture and policy of
the EU to pursue long-standing aims which the German political class has
held since before Germany became a united political entity.
Editor's note: Edward, like myself, keeps a close eye on German politics and the fact that he is proficient in the German language helps.
In response to the analysis I would be prepared to place a few shillings on a secret agreement between Germany and Russia as suggested in the article.
