Struck warnt die Grünen: The leader of the SPD in the Bundestag has warned the Green party that failing to agree to military support for the US in the war against terrorism could result in the end of the “red-green” coalition. Later on, he apparently softened that warning, but echoed a thought of my own when he said that (quoting the report) […die Grünen müssten sich aber klar machen, dass sich die Solidarität mit den USA nicht in Gedenkminuten erschöpfe.]: “…the Greens must make clear to themselves that solidarity with the USA can not be limited to a few minutes of silence.”
