Reagan's Visit to West Germany

May 12, 1985

American people should be very thankful that they have a President who has the courage to prevail against the pressures of the media and minority groups. Whenever any nation allows its foreign policy to be dictated or formulated by pressure groups, that nation is entering upon the long, dark night of dissolution.

Germany committed indescribable crimes against dissident peoples, which we all pray will never occur again. But, despite this it is essential for our own safety that the Germans remain in our orbit of influence. German arms have for generations been the shield of Western Europe. Should Germany and Russia ever embrace, that shield breached and discarded, it spells the end of Western civilization, as we know it.
