So, if folks want to get all Germans out of all NATO positions that have anything to do with Libya, then it does raise some questions about their intent--do they want Germany out of NATO? Or do they want to score some points politically? Given that it is the Green Party doing this, it could be a little of both. In the distant past, the Greens were anti-NATO. In the more recent past, the Greens were actually supporting Germany's participation in NATO. Hmmmm. Perhaps the party might be divided, but I am no expert on the Greens.*
* Updated: A friend of mine essentially confirmed this. That there are divisions within the Greens and that I am not no expert on the Greens ;)
The thing to keep in mind is that there is much more smoke here than fire. Germany is not playing any role in this conflict for good or bad. Any accusation to the contrary is either delusional or nit-picking.
