Though German Chancellor Angela Merkel raised loud objections when it was revealed that the NSA had been monitoring her private communications, a new inquiry by the German parliament revealed last week that the spy agency under Merkel's command conducted secret operations against its EU neighbors on behalf of the US government.
It is obvious that Europe is not independent but a vassal of the US empire started under the NECOS who want to have a world war without any consideration of the lives lost. They are basically working for the major arms manufacturers who will make millions of dollars. It is time for Europe to develop policies independent of the US and push for political solutions and push for peace and tell the Neocons to go suck a lemmon.
You have an over-inflated view of America's importance to we in the the rest of the world, not much different from those jingoistic Fox news watchers who deludedly proclaim how America is Number One, Same arrogance just expressed differently..
I am impressed with how much credit and power the US is given in all of this. Doesn't it take two or more parties to sign an agreement? The sad thing is many of our US Republicans and a some Democrats really believe we have this power and wish to continue to use it to support our oligarchy and to increase profits over quality of life and support for the majority of our people.
