German foreign policy experts call for a military intervention in Ukraine

Newsletter 2014/07/21 – Establish Facts

KIEV/BERLIN (Own report) – After a jetliner was shot down over Eastern
Ukraine, influential German foreign policy experts have begun calling
for a military intervention, which may include German Bundeswehr
units. “A Blue Helmet mission under the umbrella of the United
Nations” should now be taken into consideration, declared Andreas
Schockenhoff, Co-Chair of the CDU/CSU Group in the Bundestag. “Germany
may also be asked” to contribute troops. For the Chairman of the
Bundestag’s Defense Commission, Hans-Peter Bartels (SPD), a Blue
Helmet mission is also “conceivable.” It is yet unclear, who bears
responsibility for downing the jetliner. This is not an essential
question for him, as past experience with Western interventions have
shown: The EU and the USA must politically establish the facts. The
war against Yugoslavia was justified with a massacre. Substantial
doubts about central aspects of this massacre still persist. The
sniper killings on Kiev’s Maidan Square on February 20 have never been
elucidated, once they served as legitimation for overthrowing the
government of President Yanukovych. Suspicions persist that sectors of
today’s governing Maidan opposition may have played decisive roles in
these murders; however that is of no interest to the West. On the
contrary, there have never been political consequences for a US
warship’s downing of an Iranian airliner in 1988.
