Do you think that the German nation today would be apt to repeat the sins of generations past?
I can understand how some people may have cause for concern, but I think that Germany has long abandoned its Manifest Destiny. After all, reunification did not rekindle any lust for expansionism.
I remember my old World Politics professor saying one time that they wanted to build a European Germany rather than a German Europe.
Of course, he also said that when he taught at the Army War College, every Colonel that went through there ended up escalating to nuclear war during their conflict simulations on the first go around. That made me glad there were people there to teach them how to avoid nuclear war before they became generals.
