Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps these Germans should consider the condition of Germany after the Treaty of Versailles, which had just the effect of isolating Germany from her Central European hinterland and market. Of course that was not the only bit of economic wrecking done at Versailles, but it was bad enough by itself and one of the goals of French diplomacy.
