Why Germany's giving Russia a bearhug

There are 55 comments on the www.csmonitor.com story from Feb 4, 2010, titled Why Germany's giving Russia a bearhug. In it, www.csmonitor.com reports that:

As Europe debates how to handle a restless Russia on its eastern flank, one country continues to strengthen its ties to the east: Germany. Not all of Germany's neighbors are thrilled about Germany's partnership with the large bear that has more than once threatened gas supplies to the chilly continent. But for Germany, which sees itself as an agent to draw Russia westward and extend commerce, it is a natural move.

Volvo sold to Geely (China)
SAAB sold to Spyker (Holland)
Aston Martin sold to Prodrive (Dubai)
Land Rover sold to Tata (India)
Jaguar sold to Tata (India)

In America:

Chrysler sold to FIAT (Italy)
JEEP sold to FIAT (Italy)
HUMMER sold to SAIC (China)

Bullcrap! That is a lie. Germany started a war in order to murder off all of the Slavs as they wanted to occupy Slav lands, and Russia was no part of that. What a bunch of garbage you push.

Is that why they occupied most of slav lands since the end of 1945 until the slav finally kicked them out in the early 1990s?

You Ruskis are just as bad as the Nazis. Communist ruskis!

If those ruki bastards give us a problem, we may need to nuke them. The Ruskis don't really contribute much to society anyway beside genocide and stalinism.

We paid to put most of the tonnage up there. there will be two launches this year with unmanned cargo vehicle from the USA, a first for us to the ISS. We have five more shuttle flights, then we will indeed pay Russia to haul astronauts up and down. The ISS is a big money hole in space anyhow.

You are right, England lost its North American colonies. With insight, that was a good thing: I am against colonialism and imperialism in any case.

But you didn't save Britain neither in WWI nor in WWII.

Get your facts right before trying to argue a point. You participated in the victory: you didn't win on your own.

Where was America in 1939/40? Nowhere to be seen; just making money out of the war in Europe.

Also, you can abstain to regurgitate well worn clichés: my teeth are perfect!!
