Its shame and humiliation!The only thing what Germans can or sud do-just leave NATO,to expel US from NATO or to create the new Defensive organisation from the european countries already members of NATO.Germany is able to do it>.

Buy surveillance equipment which is very effective and helpful for complete security purpose.

It's about Germany's gold, and the Americans are unlikely to repatriate all of it. Besides the E.U is going to follow America no matter what, because the Europeans can't defend themselves.

Well lets just say that it failed to yield any results what so ever. Why ? Because the NSA would've known the second the helicopter took off, what they were going to look for, who was the pilot and crew were, what they ate for breakfast, what they make per year, what investments they have, where they live, etc. etc.

"chinaware inside the consulate was damaged"

That is a ranslation mistake. In the original German article it reads "Da ist viel Porzellan zerschlagen worden.". This is an allegory for that lots of trust and confidence between USA and Germany has been destroyed by this action.

how easy is it to fool the average reader, it is not what is happening folks, but what is NOT happening. No new laws or parliamentary action to limit the powers of the secret service, no raids or dismantling the spy network. time to wake up dear readers....

Election stunt. Merkel wants to show that she is doing something to block USA spying, when in fact the cooperation of the security apparatus is total and unimpeded. What about finding and shutting down all the snoop access points, or making it illegal and raiding offices of cooperating firms and governmental entities. IT IS NOT HAPPENING because MERKEL is LYING. She and the entire government is selling out their population to the neocons.

I wonder how many American consulate employees soiled their undies when this Germany helicopter buzzed them in this flyover. LOL.

nothing on other news sites about this


A little amateurish stunt to save face that wasn't even worth noticing. Probably the US diplomats in Frankfurt received advanced notice, God forbid their favorite cups should break! The Germans will chuckle about it as well. :)

They should be glad it´s only us, the spineless and harmless other countries there would have been a lot more wrecking than just the chinaware.


john 10.09.2013 07:53

and the helicopter had a sign on it saying "Vote for Merkel" .. and the sheep said "beeeeh" ...

Playing the sympathy card for the nationalist simpletons? Nice attempt at distracting the mad masses! It may work it may backfire. a helicopter in Germany cannot fly without US consent and much less that close to the US consulate. Germany, Italy and Japan are US puppets. the very number of US military bases in those countries should be enough to remind any real thinker who rules those lands.

Well done on this one Germany. USA government cannot be trusted on anything after their aggressive hysterical lies about Syria. The Belgium and Italian hostages overheard their terrorist rebel captors plan the chemical attack on innocent civilians and blaming it on Mr Assad in order to involve USA military who seem far to eager to get involved in the anarchy in Syria. Snowdon is a hero for making the World aware of USA PRISM and their aggressive use of it by spying on everyone everywhere. USA government are not transparent except in the false propaganda they spread through the media. Kerry's hysteria is not becoming.

The British right love Merkel. They lovingly call her Merkelator for her trampling of working class Greeks for what their corrupt politicians (now lounging in Brussels) stole.

So this the best that the Merkelator can do? Quite... pedestrian.
