Merkel: Germany will not participate in military action in Syria

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday, “Germany will not participate militarily,” in a military operation in Syria, although “no decision on that matter has been made yet.” She added, “We have been keeping an eye on the situation and we support every effort to emphasize that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable,” she said, calling on the West to work together to respond to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. DEBKAfile: Merkel’s decision means that President Vladimir Putin has succeeded in splitting Western Europe and NATO over President Donald Trump’s bid for a broad international front in Syria against Russia, Syria and Iran.

    Yes, Germany will not participate because they themselves were gas people once.

    Everyday I see awful things on the news, war, famine, terror, hate, chemical attacks, and it never stops.
    How can one be happy when the World is such a horrible place,
    and there is no way to delete Assad, Putin, and radical Islam?

      Eddie : same with US @according to unchecked information, widespread by the Syrian armed opposition, the Americans in advance transferred the coordinates of the selected targets to the Russians, so that they warned the Syrian side to conduct the evacuation.@

    Shame on Merkel. She usually winds up taking a principled, courageous sand.

    Why take part in a strike against. Assad and his criminal friends when a third of their families have moved to your neighborhood? With this it’s ‘Deutschland unter alles”, except for the fact that Germany is apparently donating the lion’s share of personnel & materiel to a nascent EU Military…hitherto unelected and unaccountable, just like the EU Coucil & Chair!
