There is a concerted effort to wean europe from the west and move them to supporting the east.
Though the way things are going over here on our side of the pond.... Its probably a good thing.
On the other hand, 0bama will be pleased.
Obama has dissed the closest U.S. friends and bowed to her enemies. He’s not working for the U.S., but against her. Impeach him now.
>Impeach him now.<
That would take balls — something that is sorely lacking in House and Senate.
It doesn’t matter what the Germans do,
NSA will listen to every word they say anyway.
Yeah! Right! (rolling eyes) Hey, I've got some ocean front property in Montana for sale!
ha ha Washington eat that
The Germans remember the Stasi.
We're being screwed by the ruling class, not just the liberals anymore.
IMO, The Beast, as in the Bible will NOT be any human, but will be a HUGE, controlling computer. Obviously with the number 666—serial number? binary code? Who knows?
Lives will be run by what the computer knows.
That’s CNN’s version. When you listen to the German news it’s a little different. They indeed did have a donneybrook in the bundestag over who was telling/listening/etc to what but Merkel simply pointed out that they needed to know stuff also and the grumbling is dying down fast. The amount of help the Germans have actually been in recent years requires imagination to see it’s significance. Remember they sent five, 5, FIVE airplanes to help us in Afganyland. They sent far more help to Greece than they did to us. And remember they still like our bases there so the notion that they won’t share stories is——what’s the kraut word for bunk?
Sure, can’t blame the Germans for not trusting the USA. Our government celebrates Ramadan while downplaying Christmas.
Whom do you suppose Liberals to be?
I haven’t trusted the Germans since they bombed Pearl Harbor
Another diplomatic blunder by Captain Chaos in the White House...
Snowden equals Russian spy.. yeah yeah, we all have to be afraid of our oppressive government. Oh wait, Russia embarassed us and not we’ll lose thousands of real people to terrorists. I get why we don’t want to cancel the program, not one real American imprisoned by it, but now our real enemy Russia will see thousands die because of a spy who wanted those dead.
Interesting. Sounds similar to the plot of the movie “Eagle Eye.”
The info already is in the repository.

OK, but how many planes did Canada send?
I’ll take any help I can get and friends wherever I can find them; and not every country has a powerful air force.
This is a serious rift and the current administration owns the damage.
I don’t know how much Germany has helped us or not helped us, but after many decades of working together, should we be so hasty to turn our backs?
