Schroeder and the SPD Exploit “Peace” Position – Again

David’s Medienkritik:

Germany’s federal election campaign isn’t really a hotbed of anti-Americanism or even anti-Bush rhetoric. People are more concerned about jobs and the economic misery that has befallen the country.

But the lack of anti-Americanism is not the fault of Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. He and his party SPD (Social-Democrats) are trying hard to make resistance to the Iraq war or a possible military conflict with Iran a major topic of the election campaign.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand the SPD’s election posters.

Check ’em out. Not material, to be sure. But the message is there.

And keep an eye on Medienkritik for news about politics in one of our “traditional allies”.


  1. Let’s not forget that about 50,000 troops and 100,000 dependents are coming home from Europe, primarily Germany. It’s not wise to be anti-American in Germany right now since we may take all our toys home.
