The role of the United States leadership in Germany’s Unification

The role of the United States leadership in Germany’s Unification

Dedicated to President Ronald Reagan and his administration                                                           By Catherine Stella Schmidt

The United States worked, exuberantly, for years with the diplomatic means as well as Military presentation to make the Deutsche Wiedervereiningun (Germany’s unification) in 1989-1990 possible.

Years of negotiations, financial deals, and even ultimatum brought the result when Russia finally accepted that the East and West of Germany be united, once again, as  one country and one Nation.

Looking back into history, perhaps Russia and other European parties involved in negotiations had the right to be skeptical of the subject matter and even oppose it for decades.  For they had endured the aftermath of first and the second world war tragedies (while having in mind that there were more than one Nation responssible for it)                                                                                                                                      ……………………in the course of only a half century, they had witnessed not once but several times when Deutschland drunk with an ecstasy of a lustily dream for Europe broke its signed Treaty,……………by transgressing bluntly into the hearts of its neighbouring Lands……… claiming them easily, ganz einfach, as of its own………..long lost Territories of the Holy Roman Empire (Heiliges Römisches Reich)

But the United States far from European continent and its reality, who had never experienced any of the above, with its overoptimistic vision took every steps to bring the divided East and West Germany together. That in American world Germany has never been viewed just as a Nation but it has been perceived the Nation who is the ancestor of its own Armed-Forces and Law-Enforcement.

From General Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben to Francis Lieber, and General Schwarzkopf  (named the American Hero) and millions of the men and women in uniform with the German ancestors,  without any written Treaty or the diplomatic words, in its inner heart the United States has since centuries ago registered this country ‘Deutschland’ as if its Nation and people;  has fought for Germany’s strategic interests, from the other side of the gigantic waves of the Atlantic.

It was the US– who went for Germany’s unification with all its might to seal the behind the scene deal with its soft power added with the Military might, at some point, as it was openly announced by President Reagan:

Mr.Gorbachev ….Tear down this Wall (although it was not pronounced– but the US was prepared for this direction as well)

…………..or We Will!
