COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY ERIC ZUESSE IN RUSSIA INSIDER
Angela Merkel is a complete mystery.
She is a highly intelligent woman effectively leading the EU, a bloc of 500 million people.
Yet she seems to have not the least shame at her groveling behavior towards America.
And her groveling comes at a time of unprecedented American aggressiveness.
It’s not as though she doesn’t know what’s going on in Syria, in Ukraine, in Eastern Europe, in the Baltics, in Libya, in the South China Sea, in Brazil, in Venezuela, and still other places.
America literally has gone on a terrible rampage, threatening to become a 21st century re-incarnation of Tojo’s Japan.
All the world’s citizens have reason to be deeply concerned with these developments.
Yet Ms. Merkel, effective leader of one of the world’s most powerful groups, only smiles at Obama and says, “Yes Sir, yes Sir, three bags full,” every time this psychopathic man asks or suggests anything.
Since we have some of weakest most ineffectual leaders in modern history in Britain and France today, only Ms. Merkel could bring some change in direction, but she makes no apparent effort.
I am reminded of T.S. Eliot’s “This is the way the world ends/ Not with a bang but a whimper.”
