What do you think?
Was it in 1871 with Germany as one of the fastest growing industries and France at its knees?
Was it in 1914 with German armies rolling over the French and British armies? And where Germany was more unified than in 1871?
Was it in 1941 when Germany had most of western and eastern Europe under its control?

Or is it perhaps now?
At this moment Germany is the leading economical nation of the EU, her voice weighs more than any other voice in the EU and she is one of the biggest economies in the world.

I'd say 2012: Germany leads Europe by consent which previous leaders failed to achieve, and it will probably be longer lasting too than war and military victories.

Why is Berlusconi trying to nibble Sarkozy's ear (while apparently simultaneously trying to strangle him)? I didn't think he swung that way.
