Ehrhard Eppler and peace 2.0 : The foreign policy Conscience of the SPD is back

If a pillar-Saint of his column descends, then the situation must be serious. And Erhard Eppler (92) is a pillar Saint of the SPD. He has now set up a conversation circle "peace 2.0". Yesterday, for the first time, met.

He supported the Kosovo war and the Afghanistan deployment of the Bundeswehr within the framework of Nato. A few years ago. Eppler returns now back in the political discussion, because the current price is of concern to Russia after the Crimea crisis and conflict in Ukraine and, Yes, even depressed.

First of the speakers were Eppler, the former Russia officer of the government, Gernot Erler and Ex-foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel. Among the participants were luminaries such as Ernst-Ulrich von Weizsäcker.

Where are the younger members, for example, Nils Schmid (45), as Eppler and Antretter from Baden-Württemberg, the peace and détente of Willy refer to Brandt as the more influential, the talking circle, in contrast to Brandt as a source and starting point for a Russia policy 2.0.
