Ya Think?

After a week of meeting with many world "leaders" the Telegraph reports:

Europe "must take its fate into its own hands" faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday. "The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I've experienced that in the last few days," Merkel told a crowd at an election rally in Munich, southern Germany. "We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands," she added. While Germany and Europe would strive to remain on good terms with America and Britain, "we have to fight for our own destiny", Merkel went on.

Frankly after seventy two years is it not time to grow up. Poland learned and look where it is going, well past Germany if all keeps on pace. Yes indeed Germany should finally take full responsibility for itself. Relying on the US is not only morally wrong it is just plain dumb. If someone is paying for your defense and then you complain because you are now being asked to ante up what you said you would do is wrong, what logic is that based upon.

Germany and to some degree France have managed to build their economies. They did so with no burden of defense. But the question is; is the threat Russia or what we see as an entity already destroying its peoples.

As for the "destiny" of Germany, we have seen that several times, just ask the French.
