On 30th of November, the new head of the crisis unit newly established by the German state was made public. Major General Carsten Breuer, until now head of the Bundeswehr's Territorial Tasks Command, is a highly praised man in the German military, known among his peers as a logistics expert and experienced crisis manager. Immediately after the announcement of his new post, Breuer's election was greeted with joy by various senior figures in the German state. After all, Carsten Breuer is not just anyone, but a long-time and loyal servant of German imperialism.

In 1999, Carsten Breuer completed his staff officer training at the Bundeswehr Command and Staff College in Hamburg. He then went on to a stellar career in the ranks of the imperialist German army. Immediately after his training, he became deputy to the Inspector General of the Bundeswehr in the Federal Ministry of Defence and took part in Yankee military training in the US state of Kansas in 2001 and 2002. After his return to the FRG, Breuer became Chief of the Panzergrenadier Brigade 41 and also gained his first war experience in this post. In the course of the German army's KFOR mission in Kosovo - where the FRG is responsible for suffering and misery, displacement and genocide - he became commander of the Bundeswehr contingent in Prizren. After returning to the Ministry of Defence from 2006, he was transferred to NATO headquarters in Brussels in 2008, where he held high offices. After his appointment as a general in 2013, he was sent to Afghanistan as head of the International Security Assistance Force in its second war mission of German imperialism. Since 2018, he has been head of the Territorial Tasks Command, which, according to the Bundeswehr's own definition, "...is the operational arm for territorial missions of the armed forces at home. The heart of the command is the Operations Centre (OpZ), which is ready for action around the clock 365 days a year." Since 2020, the so-called administrative assistance of the Bundeswehr against the pandemic has also been organised here under Carsten Breuer's leadership.

As head of the new crisis staff, however, General Breuer is no longer just providing "assistance" to supposedly combat the pandemic. In the crisis team of the old government under Merkel, a general of the Bundeswehr already sat, but not at the top, but in the order of precedence between the Minister of Health and the Minister of the Interior. Appointing a general as head means catapulting a man from the army, whose deployment at home seemed unthinkable until before the pandemic, to the top of the body that is supposed to manage the crisis. Convened directly by the Chancellor's Office, this crisis team is thus not some incidental heap of advisors, but a trend-setting instrument of the executive branch of the German state. No longer led by politicians, but by a major general who has already commanded in two wars of German imperialism. A man who is celebrated by the representatives of the German state as an experienced crisis manager, because he knows how to handle the crises of imperialism, and not in the interest of the people. Loudly condemning every military coup in the world with reference to "democracy", in this country they bring a military man into the chancellorship themselves.

With this step, which the new government has taken even before its inauguration, it once again confirms the law that in imperialism the new government, compared to the previous one, only becomes more reactionary, that imperialism no longer advances anything even remotely progressive.Thus, now that everything is officially and finally wrapped up in dry cloth, we are facing four years in which the FRG will be governed by an even more reactionary, even more anti-working class and anti-people government, supported in its highest ranks by the Bundeswehr.
