The U.S. has over stayed its WELCOME in Europe, so it is time for them to take their Military out of Europe altogether. NATO no longer serves Europe but only U.S. aggression as in SERBIA. Tell OBAMA that the door is now closed any co-operation between Europe and the U.S. Goodbye Americans and Godspeed to you on your way out.

To be fair, these EU governments need to stop spying on their ow people. They also need to cut all cooperation with US intelligence agencies beyond minimal interaction necessary for genuine security-but not for chasing imaginary boogeymen.


I agree, all government need to stop this indescriminate spying on their own people, it isn't right, it's certainly not an elightened way to deal with people. Data gathering, masquarading as legitimate programs promoted as avenues to help people, it's criminal minded, that's what it is.

I'mIt's pathetic, but we're used to this from the ruling class aren't we?


yes, it is pathetic that the people around the world are sue to this from the ruling class. It's also pathetic that people think technological advances really equals advancement for the human being, as an enlightened being. People are all to quick to act like they just climbed down out of a tree, fail to realize just how important " personal responsibility" is to liberty, they just can't seem to make the connection.

jane eagleton : This would mean that you believe the American spying on Brazil is of an interest to reform Brazil for the people. (Also, illegal)
But that's a bizarre opinion if you look at the destructive influence the USA has had upon every country in Central and South America. So, yours is a very naive idea of the USA.

jane eagleton: No, theses are two different questions all together.

Harold Barnes : So, will they - have they lived up to this agreement?

The real reason for the lack of Australian bluster and condemnation, dear Australian friends, if you cared to investigate, is that Australia ALREADY has a pact with the U.S. which prohibits spying within the group composed of the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and New Zealand. Try googling Quadripartite Agreement (1947) or Five Eyes. No mystery, no conspiracy, and no slavish submission of Abbot to U.S. interests. Better luck with the next anti-Abbot conspiracy theory.

Commercial espionage, the lust for total power can not be stopped by agreements or resolutions. The US and it's satellites are conducting a war OF terror on the planet. I'm not sure what the answer is!

Something else -- It's just pathetic that Brazilian President D. Rousseff demands an explanation and appology from the American government when she, herself, has a lot to explain to the Brazilian people.
