If within Germany Wilhelm was to some extent curb the Reichstag, the foreign policy was entirely in the sphere of its competence. William vividly responded to all world conflicts, no matter where in the world they occur, constantly falling into pathetic and prophetic tone. He warned that "the peoples of Europe" and the "yellow peril", it appropriated the title of "Admiral of the Atlantic", the arrogant Russian king pointed that Russia is not a mission in Europe and in East Asia. In 1894, he demanded the annexation of Mozambique, in 1896, wanted to send troops to South Africa, even if it would lead to a "ground war" against England. In 1898, during a visit to Palestine Wilhelm he declared himself the patron of all Muslims in the world. In 1899 he sent to the British operational plans for the war against the Boers made the German operational headquarters for his order. He wanted to create in South America German colonial empire and the United States promised that in case of war with Japan Prussian troops take over the defense of California. In vain all these zigzag course would be to seek an elaborate program of action. They were also the result of an impromptu, minute hobbies or bad state of mind. But there was one idee fixe, which revolved around the rest of the Emperor's thoughts: Germany should rule the world! Consequently, any neighbor Germany and was a potential enemy and a potential ally. Numerous combinations of shape in William's head, a short while later to be replaced by others. Holstein who headed the foreign ministry admitted once that for six months he had to change his course three times, obeying the will of the emperor. First Wilhelm demanded rapprochement with Russia and France, in order to protect the German colony of England. Then he wanted the union with England, even at the cost of concessions to the colonies. Finally, I became suspicious of Britain and Russia and tried to seek support from France.
