From Germany with love

In these days – though it’s to be secret – Germany sold 200 (200!) tanks to Saudi-Arabia. This country is an important ally, so they said. Many people here thought: if only Taliban would have oil, they could as well have weapons from Germany. Germany is the world third biggest weapon-seller now. These tanks could well be used against the own population, or to opress protests in neighbouring countries. What’s about human rights there? People are sentenced to death and stoned in public, hands and feet are cut off, women are not even allowed to drive a car. Saudi-Arabia exports Salafism into the world. They gave millions of dollars to Bosnia and who knows whereelseto. Maybe they are backing extremism in Germany too?
Ben Ali, former president of Tunisia, fled to Saudi-Arabia. So did President Saleh from Yemen. Mubarak will need an exile too. Gaddafi and Assad will go to Iran though.
