The Germans should understand what pandering to dictators produces...

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Some 8,500 combat-ready US troops are on high alert to deploy at short notice amid rising tension over Ukraine, the Pentagon says.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Memorandum_on_Security_Assurances

Quote
The Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances refers to three identical political agreements signed at the OSCE conference in Budapest, Hungary on 5 December 1994 to provide security assurances by its signatories relating to the accession of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The memorandum was originally signed by three nuclear powers: the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States. China and France gave somewhat weaker individual assurances in separate documents.[1]

Russian State Media:

Ukraine is massing hundreds of thousands of troops on our border, prepping for an invasion and destabilizing the region.....

Ooops, that's us.

Who might that be?  Are they threatening a democracy in Europe or Asia?

^ At a minimum, I would add Iran and North Korea. 

When it comes to being less than truthful, well, I think every country, including ours, has been guilty of that at times.  Some, obviously, more than others.  As such, today, I would say Saudia Arabia, Belarus, Afghanistan, Myanmar Venezuela, Cuba and Kazakhstan would be notable leading candidates to add to the list.  I am sure there are others, just not as obvious or prominent.  Certainly, any country with an oppressive government and/or dictator is a candidate.

The US Republican Party, although the continent would be North America.
