BERLIN/WASHINGTON(Own report) - In reference to the US drone-murder of Iran's General Qassem Suleimani, German government advisors are warning against a growing number of violations of international law by the United States. For years, "the foreign policy of the Trump administration has demonstrated that it has been a particular strain on international law," observes an analysis published by Berlin's German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP). Suleimani's murder suggests that Washington is now beginning to extend its "war on terror" tactics, that had already become common-place under President Barack Obama - such as drone-murders - to leading representatives of foreign nations, it considers to be "a threat." In the future, "state representatives should fear for their lives, when they travel outside their country," because "the consequences for international diplomacy are hardly predictable." The SWP advises the German government to take a clear stand. Of course, in its attempts to implement its globalist policies over the past few decades, Berlin, too, has repeatedly violated international law, often as an accomplice of the USA.
For years, government advisors in Berlin have been warning against the growing number of United States' violations of international legal norms. Particularly within the framework of its "war on terror," illegal measures have been taken - "extrajudicial arrests, targeted assassinations, arbitrary surveillance" - which continue to this day, and continue to be "tolerated" in Europe, according to an extensive study published by the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP), back in August 2018.
