Great comments from Ms Merkel. Are you watching LDP?

the fall of the DDR; Deutsche Demokratische Republik. We watched on the television in the Arbeiter Club, i saw grown men cry as the wall came down. Many were veterens of WWII from the German side. This wall to them was the final symbol of the wars end - when their country was reunited - and true rebuilding could occur.

the beginning of the end for Russia's influence- and now we need to be concerned of a revitalized Russia and a new wall - just not in Germany.

I can't believe I was around when the wall went down. I remember seeing it on the news, but I was too young to care.

Reagan and Gorbachev helped to bring down Berlin wall. Hope not that Angela Merkel appeases Putin too much for the sake of Europe. Well, Obama alone breaks the rule and declares his own law if he use s executive privilege upon million illegal immigrants in U.S., duh!

In the course of its 29-year existence, Checkpoint Charlie witnessed acts of courage and acts of desperation. Checkpoint Charlie stood as a symbol of the American support for a free life.

I remember driving on the StadtAutobahn in WestBerlin when the "Trabant" flood begun. Opened the window and shook hands with random people in these vehicles - full of joy.

Wall came down but Germany once again asserted dominance over EU - we still see the consequences today.

praack the fall of the DDR; Deutsche Demokratische Republik. We watched on the television in the Arbeiter Club, i saw grown men cry as the wall came down. Many were veterens of WWII from the German side. This wall to them was the final symbol of the wars end - when their country was reunited - and true rebuilding could occur.

Sorry - the wall was a final result of the free democratic choice of German people who vote for Nazi&Fuerer in 1932

the beginning of the end for Russia's influence- and now we need to be concerned of a revitalized Russia and a new wall - just not in Germany.

The most sad thing for me (and I'm from Russia) that Germans have started two world war

Have killed millions of people

have lost millions on people

have lost two world war

And have learn nothing in two world war ....

"Mr. Gorbechav tear down this wall" with SDI spending crumbled the wall. It may have been inevitable but Reagan expedited the division.
