Merkel's party: The US is responsible for Iraq

The Chairman of the Christian Democratic Union in Germany Volker Kauder said he holds the United States responsible for the developments in Iraq.

In remarks to the German newspaper Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung today, Kauder said: "The Americans, due to their previous invasion of Iraq, hold full responsibility towards the development of the situation there." Kauder said that with this background, Americans should "study a new military intervention" in Iraq.

Kauder added that the Sunni terrorist groups seek to impose a terrifying system in Iraq and have brutally executed children, insisting "America should not allow this to happen".

He went on to say that his country would not participate in any military missions in Iraq, because "the concern for bringing stability to Iraq is the task of the Americans".
