On the other hand (his right hand)

Below I suggest that German's are maybe almost 1% as ignorantly insular as we statunitensi (do you know that we don't even have a non offensive word for ourselves in our own laguage (recall Reagan noted that the Russians don't even have a word for detente in their language).

To be fair, on German's reaching out, German UN ambassador* Hans Beinholtz is a comic genius.

* yes I know that the correct title German permanent representative at the UN as he represents the German people and not the government of the day.
