Germany is behind the EU's indecisiveness in an unpredictable economic and political crisis today. Germany's direct and indirect intervention in Turkey's political process nowadays is undoubtedly a result of the policy of indirect annexation it initiated in the early 1990s. The year 1989 saw the fall of the Berlin Wall, as well as the German industry coming to a deadlock, just like in Nazi Germany.
Nazism and its causes
It became clear at the end of the first quarter of the 20th century that World War I could not resolve the problem of sharing between big states. The first signs of a German-centric crisis were emerging in continental Europe and a U.K. and U.S.-centric crisis was emerging on the Anglo-Saxon side. The German industry was at a disadvantage in the face of the rapidly growing U.S. economy, the new Soviet Union, which had natural resources, and the U.K. and France, which easily accessed resources and markets by taking the advantage of old colonial periods.
Having failed to access the natural resources of the Soviet Union and the new markets, Germany got stuck in the heart of Europe, making a crisis imminent. This was one of the main reasons for the German fascism which coincided with Nazism. In other words, soon before the Great Depression of 1929, Germany was the residue of an old empire that had difficulty in reaching resources and new markets. The "hungry" German industry, which was about to rise, and the German financial capital needed to first reach Siberia and then go toward the south to satisfy its need for resources and markets.
Let us go back to 1933 when the Nazi Party came to power. The 1930s were quite similar to the early 1990s when East and West Germany reunited - which was followed by the Yugoslavian civil war. In this regard, 1935 and 1995 (when the Srebrenica massacre took place) are sister years.
Although the Nazi Party came to power in 1933, real Nazi rule started when German President Paul von Hindenburg died in 1934 and was succeeded by Adolf Hitler as a "führer" and an imperial chancellor.
By 1935, Nazi aggression and invasion officially started. Nazis ignored the Treaty of Versailles and set to work by annexing Saarland, which was a strategic state in terms of coal mines. In other words, Nazi invasion and expansion in the strictest sense did not literally start with the annexation of Austria in 1938, but with the Nazis' expansion through the invasion of the Saarland state in 1935 - the Third Reich. And World War II started with Germany's attack on Poland on Sept. 1, 1939. The four-year period, from 1935 to 1939, is quite important. Here, the Nazi danger was not taken seriously and Stalin's covert alliance with the Nazis was not dwelled upon.
The neo-Nazi Germany
What has happened since the 1995 Srebrenica massacre is quite similar. The process starting with the unification of East and West Germany in 1990, just like the unification of Austria with Nazi Germany of its so-called will in 1938, continued with the Balkanization process that focused on Yugoslavia and that resulted in a massacre in 1995. The current Germany is the main responsible party for the Srebrenica massacre. The Yugoslavian civil war was the design of a neo-Nazi Germany as a whole and the result of Germany's dream of a Fourth Reich.
Here is the fact!
Here is my argument: The process that started in Eastern Europe in the 1990s and continued with massacres that went as far as genocides, like the one in Srebrenica, were not finalized by Germany. And humanity's problem with Nazi Germany, which started with Hitler, is still continuing. This is the historic fact and current economic and political situation no matter to what extent Germany rejects President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's accusation of Germany of neo-Nazism.
Today, Germany, the prime responsible party for the new European crisis, has gotten stuck in the procurement of resources and markets like it was before World War II. It has not been enough for Germany to unite with East Germany, dissolve Yugoslavia, equip fascists like Slobodan Milosevic and Hitler's Schutzstaffel army and provoke them. Germany needs to reach the Mediterranean, agree with Russia, control northern energy and trade corridors and have commercial and economic domination on Turkey and Eastern Europe in this way. However, this dream of a Fourth Reich is far from reality, so much so that it will make Germany long for Nazism's dream of the Third Reich.
Today, Turkey is the only country than can carry Caucasian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern resources to Europe and undermine the German domination in Eastern Europe. Turkey's Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) and Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) projects, its control on new trade routes coming from China again, its prominence in Mediterranean commercial transits and energy resources with projects like the Southern Energy Corridor (SGC), the New Silk Road and the Istanbul New Airport has confined Germany to the heart of Europe like it was before World War II.
Germany cannot escape this stalemate with a new neo-Nazi strategy, but a peaceful strategy. Therefore, it should give up its desire to create new Nazi armies from fascistic terrorist organizations of the new period such as the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) and others as it created the Milosevic and Schutzstaffel army. Otherwise, it will pay a more severe price before humanity than the Nazis did.
