Stenografischer Bericht 25. Sitzung Berlin, Donnerstag, den 13. Februar 2003

Dr. Angela Merkel: Sie machen sich Sorgen, ob wir, die Politiker – egal ob Regierung oder Opposition –, unser Land durch eine schwierige Zeit, insbesondere durch den Irakkonflikt und durch den Kampf gegen den Terrorismus mit Klugheit und Weisheit führen können. Die Menschen in diesem Lande wollen keinen Krieg.

(Hans-Werner Bertl [SPD]: Das ist wahr!)

Diejenigen, die in diesem Saale sitzen, wollen auch keinen Krieg.

(Lebhafter Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Sehr geehrter Herr Bundeskanzler, wie sehr Sie innerlich unter Druck stehen, hat man schon an der Lautstärke Ihrer Stimme gemerkt.

(Lachen bei der SPD)

Dass Sie es aber nötig haben, die Opposition dieses Hauses als Kriegstreiber zu verleumden,

(Hans Michelbach [CDU/CSU]: Pfui!)

zeigt, in welcher Ecke Sie stehen. Aus dieser Ecke werden Sie nicht herauskommen können.

(Anhaltender Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Wer als Bundeskanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschland den Eindruck erweckt, irgendjemand würde sich die Entscheidung über Krieg und Frieden leicht machen und die letzte Chance aus der Hand geben, der, sehr geehrter Herr Bundeskanzler, hat nicht erfasst, worum es geht.

(Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP)

Ich sage Ihnen: Sie sind seit Wochen auf einem Irrweg. Das Schlimmste ist – das sage ich mit großem Ernst; das ist meine feste Überzeugung –, dass insbesondere Ihr Verhalten auf dem Marktplatz von Goslar den Krieg im Irak leider nicht unwahrscheinlicher, sondern wahrscheinlicher gemacht hat; denn Sie haben den Druck auf Saddam Hussein verringert.

(Beifall bei der CDU/CSU und der FDP – Lothar Mark [SPD]: Das ist unglaublich! – Weitere Zurufe von der SPD)

Im Gegensatz zu Ihnen war ich in München und weiß, was ich gesagt habe. Niemand hat behauptet, dass es aufgrund der Resolution 1441 einen Automatismus der Gewalt gibt.
