"Where are the leftists who should now take a stand against the war?" - Yes, where are all the "pacifists" who have so diligently demonstrated against every conflict the US was ever involved in? Why no demonstrations outside Russian embassies? Very good point.

Obwohl sowohl dieses Konsensus als auch pazifistische Bewegung könnten ruhig hinterfragt werden. Denn wo sind gerade die Linken, die jetzt gegen den Krieg auftreten sollten? Oder passen die Kriege, die Russland führt, in die Weltanschauung der deutschen Pazifisten gut rein? 2/2

It's linked to an anti-Americanism in the far left which the States is seen as the big bogeyman. Its linked to Palastinen solidarity. Also, IMHO many of the international bodies have folk that still have a Cold War viewpoint.

that's a good summary
Again, it’s easiest to think of Germany as one big Switzerland when it comes to geopolitics. Ask yourself - what might Switzerland do in this or that situation? That’s what Germany will gravitate to.
