Oder jedenfalls nützliche Idiotin. Dies hier ist ziemlich starker Tobak. Man ahnte ja, wie sehr Thatcher ein vereintes Deutschland abgelehnt hat. Aber dass sie bereit war, den ganzen Ostblock unter der russischen Fuchtel zu lassen!
Reagan war wirklich ein Freiheitsfreund (im Bezug auf den Kommunismus). Thatcher interessierte sich nur für britische Interessen – und denen war offenbar besser gedient mit den Eisernen Vorhang. Shocking!
Two months before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Margaret Thatcher told President Gorbachev that neither Britain nor Western Europe wanted the reunification of Germany and made clear that she wanted the Soviet leader to do what he could to stop it.
In an extraordinary frank meeting with Mr Gorbachev in Moscow in 1989 — never before fully reported — Mrs Thatcher said the destabilisation of Eastern Europe and the breakdown of the Warsaw Pact were also not in the West’s interests. She noted the huge changes happening across Eastern Europe, but she insisted that the West would not push for its decommunisation. Nor would it do anything to risk the security of the Soviet Union.
So die Londoner Times.
Thatcher sagte zu Gorbatschow in einem geheim Gespräch:
The reunification of Germany is not in the interests of Britain and Western Europe. It might look different from public pronouncements, in official communiqué at Nato meetings, but it is not worth paying ones attention to it. We do not want a united Germany. This would have led to a change to post-war borders and we can not allow that because such development would undermine the stability of the whole international situation and could endanger our security.
