Merkel never takes a position until after the fact. The majority of Germans who are doing well in this economy don't want to be bothered with domestic and world problems anymore as they were by the Social Democratic and Green Party coalition during their years (unemployment, Bosnia, 9/11). Germany and the Germans have no ambition to play an important role in world politics even in the Euro crisis. That is why they like Merkel despite her troublesome government. Don't expect any support from Merkel other than "political support" after it is clear which positions others are taking.
