German Politicians:
Without Comment

Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl: 'The effectiveness of NATO's threat to bomb the Serbs was mostly due to my influence."
Quoted in Der Spiegel, No 9,1994.

Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl: "Germany has dealt with its history. In future, it can admit to its world role and widen it. The whole of Germany has the chance now to find its inner harmony... to which belongs living patriotism."
Federal Government statement, 30 January 1991.

Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl: "It would be a historical failure if we allow ourselves to be just satisfied with German reunification."
Quoted in Süddeutsche Zeitung, 16 June 1992.

Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl: "If the Oder-Neisse frontier (with Poland) were the eastern frontier of the political union, that would be a catastrophe for this country."
Quoted in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 28 May 1993

Federal Defence Minister, Volker Rühe: "Germany must not accept that a new political border establishes itself on its eastern frontier."
Quoted in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitting, 8 September 1993.

Wolfgang Schäuble, CDU/CSU Fraction leader in the Bundestag:
"Without a further development of (western) integration, Germany could be seduced by its own security needs to bring stability to eastern Europe by itself and in the traditional way."

Quoted in Blätter für deutsche und internationale Politik. No. 12,1991.

Bavarian Prime Minister, Edmund Stoiber: "Kohl is achieving what Kaiser Wilhelm and Hitler could not manage. If the frontiers between Germany and Austria and Germany and Switzerland were to fall, then the entire German-speaking cultural region could be brought together."
Quoted in Fürstenfeldbrucker Neueste Nachrichten, 5 August 1992.

Friedbert Pflüger, CDU defence specialist and Bundestag member: "The spirit of the times is blowing again from the Right...Whoever travels round the country and talks to the party grass roots feels everywhere the influence of the New Right...In many of my meetings, Poland's western frontier is questioned and the return of Silesia and East Prussia is demanded."

Quoted in Hunno Hochbergen Die Intervention der BRD in den jugoslawischen Bürgerkrieg, Cologne 1992.

Hannelore Ronsch, former Federal Family Minister: "It is important to support parents who wish to have children. After all, the Defence Ministry needs enough young soldiers to be able to maintain a fighting army."
