US Loses Patience with Europe: Washington Wants Tough Russia Sanctions - SPIEGEL ONLINE

America has taken the lead on this issue while Europe has dithered and worried about the economic impact of sanctions. Its time we, in particular the German government, stood up and recognised our responsibilities to maintain law, order and democracy in Europe. As an Irish person I find it both disgusting and frustrating that we and other similarly minded countries in the EU haven’t been able to register our dismay at the actions of Russia because it doesn’t suit German economic interests.

Whether it likes it or not Germany is a world power, it needs to start acting like one.
