Eventually, Germany may find itself in a position where it can contend for global hegemon (in much the same way the US is global hegemon rn and contested with the USSR for the gig). In that case, they would come to blows with anyone else who is in a position to contend for the job. Interests be damned - the bigger you get, the more interests you have.I doubt that. Germany has no holdings in the area and no real interests there. They can get oil from the Ottomans and rubber from Mittelafrika.
