Angela Merkel is placing her country in a very, very dangrous path as a frontline for an American military invasion of Russia, and that means as a nuclear target.

Angela Merkel wants to lauch a military attack against the Russian Federation.

I think Merkel doesn´t know what she is doing. She is out of her mind, without any sense of History.

Ge rmany killed more than 20 million Russians during the last Operation Barbarossa, three times more than Jews in the Holocaust, so Angela Merkel should show more respect instead of trying to embark Germany in a Nuclear War against the Russian Federation.

I understand that Germany is not a sovereign nation, but at least she could follow the example from Gerhard Schroeder who decided not to participate in the US invasion of Iraq.

Im surprised that her security advisers gave her a phone that clearly was not secure ,there are phones out there such as jumper phones that share other peoples bandwidth so cant be traced ,the British picked these these up back in 90s off of 2 drug smugglers arrested at Heathrow .the average price of an mp,s /ministers phone in the UK is about £2500 !

A security program is just that and security is just a matter of time , but there are systems out there such as Active lock out programs that sense intervention and can lock it out via a gating system , surly if your a countries leader you would have one !

No peace treaty for Germany since the end of World War II even no constitution, the German people and its country is still occupied by the three remaining victorious powers and Germany isn't even a state with its own sovereignty! We Germans are the paymaster for the EU, USA and of course Israel, and it will stay this way for eternity!

All politicians are under surveilance and they know that when the secret services want they can.

It's a play. They're all eating at the same table server the same masters, pseudo-democracy.

Merkel take my advice. Grow some balls and kick the Yanky Kabal bases out of Germany. Stop crying, you are the chancelor remember?


Samuel von Staunton 24.10.2013 13:38

It's fine for her when every other German's phone is tapped, but suddenly it's unacceptable when they do the same to her. What a joke.

She hit the nail on the head when she said that Germany is dependent on the United States, something that, as Kanzler, she is responsible for.

It is time for Germany to guarantee her own security, and kick the 57000 man occupation force left by a wartime enemy out of our country. Perhaps then we can guarantee our people's prosperity instead of profits for bankers and merchants.

"Unacceptable&q uot; to Angie. Yes. Unacceptable to me too; what's so special about you? - how come you can call Obama and complain, while I never get past the switchboard?


Joseph Walker 24.10.2013 12:26

Germany leave the EU,join the BRIC countries ,you would be better off,Germans have nothing in common to the white race IE Europe Britain and America.

Hopefully this will mess up the usa/Germany relationship, all they need next is spying on the Chinese first Lady and China will want the usa blood for that!


Ailayna 24.10.2013 11:47

Merkel has been such an Obama lickspittle I doubt she voiced any concerns, they probably just traded dessert recipes.


Tim Collins 24.10.2013 11:14

Ahh you funnee Americans.
After watching Obama get his tail paddywhacked by Putin over the Persian missile fiasco it's hilarious to see the delusional process is still staggering on.

Give Europe a call when you can pay the interest on your countries debts, let alone go forward - talk about yesterday's heroes.

Si nce when Germany is US occupied country? You guys forgot to read some history books, didn't you?


Germany was split up USSR, USA and the United Kingdom. If you like, I can buy you a history book or two. What did you think the Berlin wall was? A decoration?


Mike Namey 24.10.2013 09:39

LoL She helped the US spy on the German people. Her tears are those of a hypocrite. Don't like it? Why did you allow them to spy on your people?
