Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh I'm quite sure these people still lurk. After all, most military organisations have their reunions; I know that the WWII German Afrika corps and British 8th Army organisations are nowadays practically joined at the hip. You'd have to be hopelessly naive to imagine that the SS are too ashamed to have their own reunions, and not just in Paraguay.

And should they wish to go somewhere nice and sunny, why not a "friendly" country ? And you don't get friendlier than an old ally, with whom you probably forged bonds of comradeship and shared philosophy (where do the Liga Nord get their support ?).

But do they have power ? Can they influence policy ? Yes and no. Yes in that these people have always been "connected" and America needed Germany to be run by somebody. Once the figureheads had had their showtrial germany was officially exonerated, they were the good guys, all that bad stuff was nothing to do with them. They were allies now, so forgive and forget.

But no in that they do not want a fourth reich. Do german bankers want to run the continent ? Of course, but all bankers want to be in control. The guys in the Bank of England and the French equivalent are probably grinding their teeth in jealousy that they can't set the rules for the impoverishment and plundering of europe.

Just as the guys in chicago and Wall st want to impoverish and plunder the world. It doesn't make them nazis but it certainly makes them dangerous. Only a fool would let them loose on the ...oh wait

keep to the Fen Causeway
