Three questions for Josef Joffe : What is the world doing?

The Feast of love is louder separations. US President, Trump separates from Syria and Afghanistan, his defense Minister, Mattis separates from the office. What separates both from the duel?

Everything. The last policy-relevant duel in America took place in 1804, when the Vice-President Burr totschoss the Minister of Finance Hamilton. Trump, who has pressed for military service, can't shoot, and the Marine General Mattis is not in the American Tradition of civilian supremacy, the absolute obedience calls for. In addition, Trump would not be for him a satisfaction is capable of. He goes, because he does not want to be complicit in a Disaster of American foreign policy, the two main enemies – Russia and Iran a free Hand in the middle East. People will find Trump in his tenure. America is now ruled by rumpelstiltskin, a Wüterich,.

Britain's isolation will end – how it looks – in the Chaos. Or is missing the sharpness of the separation?

WmdW still believes that Brussels and London are finally soft of the abyss back, you are looking at for a few weeks. Europe and the UK need each other, and the closer to the divorce date gets, the crazier, the paralysis affects both sides. As the British writer Samuel Johnson (1704-84)? "Nothing concentrates the thoughts of a people better than his impending execution" (freely translated).

A warm word for the Trend to drizzle grey Christmas...

a White Christmas are overrated. We think of being alone in Nazareth in the year 1 of Christ. Thank God, it was as warm in the unheated barn. You don't want to think of how the story in the blinding snow would have developed. Historically, there was only the "Little ice age" in the 17th century. and 18. Century regularly snow in Central Europe. In the middle of the 19th century. Santa came on foot, not in a sleigh. Since then, it has been warmer here and "Softly falls the snow" to the exception, what battles but interferes with the (selective) memory of the Christmas snow ball. In the past everything was better.
