U.S. Offered Berlin 'Five Eyes' Pact. Merkel Was Done With It

With a fool as President, where is hope for Leadership?

As spying betrayals become ever more acute, Germany kicks out another American spy. Relationships are failing.

It seems that even a ship of fools realizes it has run aground. But as this article points out realization that you have run aground is often too late.

This will now have consequences well beyond what most people imagine as you turn down the offer made suggests Germany will chart a course of its own, and that may not be an America first policy.

China and Russia await with open arms, while the world watches mistake after mistake made.

So sad to see a disaster created for so little gain. Can anyone reign in this ship of fools? With a fool as President, were is hope for Leadership?
