German Names Unnamed Country

In an “emotional farewell,” outgoing German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder slams . . . Katrina response.  Yes, I don’t know how to evaluate that either. Was lager involved?  And who writes this guy’s speeches — Kanye West?

"I do not want to name any catastrophes where you can see what happens if organised state action is absent. I could name countries, but the position I still hold forbids it, but everyone knows I mean America," he said to loud applause.

Whatever would the world do without organized state action by Germans?
