Longtime US ‘ally’ turns down Trump’s request for help with Iran’s insubordination


With friends like these, am I right?

When it comes to keeping the Middle East from devolving into a faith-fueled catastrophe, it’s an all hands on deck sort of situation.  The vast and valuable resources of the region have exacerbated the fanatical religious fervor that runs rampant in that pocket of the world, leading to a tangled web of trouble dating back at least to the 1950’s…and probably much, much further.

The latest trouble comes to us from perpetual mischief makers in Iran, who, upset at the international community’s perfectly acceptable sanctions, are lashing out at the Middle East’s oil industry in revenge.  So far, several ships, a couple of drones, and an oil pipeline have all been attacked or destroyed, with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard believed to be behind the chaotic campaign.

The German Federal Foreign Office said that Washington has approached them to contribute to a new surveillance mission in the Persian Gulf but had rejected the appeal saying there was no prospect of a contribution, German tabloid Bild reports.

Germany’s allies, including the U.S. and the UK, have been attacked in the Persian Gulf by Iran in recent months. and under the doctrine of collective defence guaranteed by the NATO alliance, Germany is duty-bound to come to the aid of its allies if asked. Yet senior members of Angela Merkel’s left-centrist coalition government have made clear working with the U.S. is out of the question.

The refusal wasn’t made quietly or tactfully either…

Social Democrat (SPD) foreign policy spokesman Nils Schmid told German newspaperTagesspiegel that “participation is out of the question,” adding: “Germany will not participate in a U.S. mission.

“We could suddenly find ourselves on the side of the Americans in a war with Iran. European nations should be very careful to keep a distance from the military mission of the Americans.”

While some claim that the reticence on The Rhine is due to Germany’s military mishaps, Schmid’s statement above seems to indicate that the chip on their shoulder may be growing too burdensome to lend a hand to their supposed “ally”.
