I'm gonna miss Gerhard Schroeder if this Reuters report is true and he's headed out of the political fray. Who else gives good quote like this re: the consequences of neo-liberalism:
"I do not want to name any catastrophes where you can see what happens if organised state action is absent. I could name countries, but the position I still hold forbids it, but everyone knows I mean America," he said to loud applause.I don't know if it's Reuters' translator that makes that funny or if it's just as funny in German. Either way, auf Wiedersehen Schroeder!
