Message Subject US won’t ‘automatically’ play defender role for Europe anymore – Merkel
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Europe and the US have been sharing common values for decades, but the former shouldn’t count on American military assistance any longer and should look towards other power centers, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has argued.

It is 30 years since the end of the Cold War revealed “a new narrative of global power distribution,” Merkel told lawmakers in Berlin. “There is a military and economic superpower, the USA,” which Europe has been tied up with “through a system of values,” she said.

Despite all the differences, “there is still the commonality between us,” the chancellor admitted, but warned against setting one’s hopes too high when it comes to the future of US-Europe ties.

She wants her own European army anyway.

'Other power centres'. I wonder who she has in mind. She thinks she's her grandpappy. And can you imagine depending on Micro-n protecting Europe? They might defend the white flag factory.
