Welcome to the club, dear friends. Our Chancelor Merkel is the role model for a hesitant politician trying to please all sides. But she has developed that strategy to perfection. When there are important questions on the table, she just vanishes and lets low ranging party-members issue some provocative statements. Then she watches the public response and goes along with the majority. That way, she is always on the safe side. Leading a country is something completely different. In the "Afghanistan-Affair" (German soldiers bombing some Taliban and a lot of plundering villagers to pieces), we had newspaper-comments asking if she is still in office... Maybe Bibi went to Germany to learn a little bit from her. Wouldn't be a good idea though, because the political leadership over here has important issues on the table that need to be solved. Germany is without a missing soldier and the surrounding countries are our allies, not our enemies...
