Merkel Says Europe Must Take Fate Into Own Hands

MUNICH — Europe can no longer completely rely on its allies, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday, pointing to bruising meetings of G7 wealthy nations and NATO last week.

Merkel didn't mention by name U.S. President Donald Trump, who criticized major NATO allies and refused to endorse a global climate change accord, but she said at a packed beer tent in Munich that the days when Europe could completely count on others were "over to a certain extent."

"I have experienced this in the last few days," she said. "And that is why I can only say that we Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands — of course in friendship with the United States of America, in friendship with Great Britain and as good neighbors wherever that is possible also with other countries, even with Russia."

"But we have to know that we must fight for our future on our own, for our destiny as Europeans," Merkel said.

Good for Merkel. Hopefully Europe will stop depending on the US military and plan their budgets for much larger military spending.

Dilbert, I thought the exact same thing. But with nutjobs like her, they don't stand a chance. I know, SHOULDN'T be our problem....but two World Wars proves it very well could be.

Why can't they just get their sh$t together?

Sorry Europe! The USA has wised up. You are going to have to sell your overpriced cars and cut back on the beer and wine parties to pay for your own stuff. We aren't going to pay for your protection or fall for your carbon schemes anymore!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

During WW1 they were allies with Turkey and the Ottoman empire.

Amen to that. Europe needs to redirect a lot of their funds for self defense and also to care for their immigrants.

France's prison system is overrun with immigrants and the UK is starting to fill up.

Both France and the Netherlands rejected the candidates that wanted to slow immigration. It is full speed ahead for self grown terrorists.

Trump did admire the quality of their NATO headquarters in Brussels...perhaps that's what the money was spent on....

She gets called out for not paying fair share, and the response is "Europe can no longer completely rely on its allies?"

Not sure what to make of that, but sounds pretty crappy to me. Glad Trump spoke up. Enough of this nonsense.

I view this as good news. Trump has been trying to mend fences and bridge gaps with our allies...but, the Europeans want the US to continue as the world policeman while they further embrace Islam.

We can't save nations that are h*ll bent on self destruction.

Trump needs something to push him away from the world policeman concept and I think Merkel is helping this.
