The world is about to get what Peter Zeihan calls The Absent Superpower as the old Cold War/Bretton Woods/WTO system is no longer maintained by America.
Germany is also cheating the system. They have cut their military spending to the bone, but expect the US to foot most of the bill for Europe's security, while refusing to follow the US lead by importing huge amounts of Russian natural gas and doing everything possible not to get on board with Iran Sanctions. The get the free protection, reap the benefits of America arming Ukraine and keeping the Straits of Hormuz open, while double dealing on the side with Russia and Iran.
And I'm fairly positive that there was more than subtle pressure by at least all prior US governments on Germany to take the brunt of the rapefugee fallout so that the US doesn't have to have anything to do with this.

It backfired, because all the Eastern and Southern Europeans saw Merkel as being kinder to non-Europeans than Europeans.I believe the neoliberals in Europe want migrants to prevent rental income collapses and unavoidable wage increases from a shrinking population, but they ended up with welfare Arabs and NAFRAs instead of the Trademen Turks which they expected.
