He makes some good points and some that made me roll my eyes.
As for Germany, it is no longer the “new” model West Germany of the post-war order, but a familiar old Germany that now pushes around its neighbors on matters of illegal immigration, financial bailouts, Brexit, Russian energy, and NATO contributions, much as it used to seek to expand Prussia and the Sudetenland.


He's saying Germany's use of its influence in EU politics is like how the Nazis used to push around their neighbors? :roll:

More that Germany is once again assertive, whereas for several decades post war, they wouldn’t have dreamed of doing such.

To a greater or lesser extent, Germany (as a relatively large, prosperous, populous country) has thrown its weight around. Obviously, what Merkel does is not as extreme as Bismarck or Kaiser whilhelm, still less Hitler.

Worüber lachst du? Habe ich eine humorvolle Bildunterschrift verfehlt? (Vermissen = to miss as in "I miss him".)
But actually one would write "übersehen", to overlook.

Du weißt, dass ich nur vorgebe, Deutsch zu sprechen.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
