VE - we celebrate that 70 years ago the war in Europe ended, but the peace has eluded us.
There have been a number of treaties since the war, mainly concerned with the reunification
of the Soviet controlled DDR and the Western construct the Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Federal Republic of Germany),but no peace treaty with the Deutsche Reich, which still exists as the de jure German state - the BDR may well govern but only de facto.
Germany is therefor not a fully sovereign state but occupied enemy territory and has been for a human lifetime, mostly by Washington and London, there not being any Russian soldier or base on German soil.
Isn't it about high time that the German people be granted their "one sunny day" of full sovereignty for celebrations too?
