Today Germany started official action to force the U.S. to recall the U.S. Spymaster against Germany and extend the investigations of illegal U.S. spying in Germany, which went into high gear a week or so ago. Considering how docile Germany has been toward the U .S. because of the continued occupation of Germany by the U.S. and the obvious U.S. spying on the entire lives of Germany's political leaders, including the Prime Minister, this is a major act of revolt.
Today the E.U. as a whole condemned the explosive eruption of warfare between Israel and the Palestinians and called on BOTH to stop. This was a strong slap in the face of the U.S. and its proxy Israel, since the U.S. as usual has openly sided with the massive attacks on Palestinians by Israel in retaliation for the almost totally non-lethal rockets fired into Israel by Hamas in Gaza.
