Schröder: Bush and Obama Policy ‘Wrong and Dangerous’

May 10, 2015 (EIRNS)—Gerhard Schröder, former German Chancellor, said on May 5,

"NATO and the EU, on the one hand, and Russia, on the other, are not enemies. They should become partners again." Speaking at a conference in Germany, Schroeder said that both the Bush and Obama approaches to Russia have a "wrong and dangerous tone," pointing to Obama’s statement that Russia is only a "regional power." He said the EU-Russia relationship must be built on dialogue and cooperation, "otherwise Europe will not be a safe home for us and future generations."

While there is a deafening silence from American leaders other than Lyndon LaRouche on the celebrations in Moscow, one old World War II soldier, former Senator and Presidential candidate Bob Dole, spoke out on U.S.-Russia relations on May 8 to Sputnik, no doubt to the horror of the current crop of psychotic Republican leaders:

"We have got to get back together again. We are both good people in each country. We just have to somehow get Putin and Obama or the next president maybe to have another reset. We would not have made it without each other in World War II. You lost millions of people and you made the greatest sacrifice. Huge losses—generations of young men."
