Taking US puppet to a new level. Merkel knew NSA was spying on German companies, but did nothing

Germany may be looking to overtake the Unite Kingdom as America’s number one vassal state.

German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, knowing that the NSA was actively spying on her own country’s corporations, remained curiously silent.

According to the Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) overheard communications of European companies and politicians for the US’s NSA.

The problem for Germany is that their Chancellor knew what was going on and simply decided to allow it to contnue, ultimately placing American intelligence over her own country’s privacy rights.

Merkel’s Office did nothing to stop the spying activities…even though it was informed about US espionage attempts in 2008.

According to the available information, the NSA was trying to get information about the multinational arms companies EADS and Eurocopter. This was contrary to German interests, and the BND had rejected the requests at that time.

However, now it has become clear that the BND assisted the US National Security Agency (NSA) in spying on European targets over the last few years.

The revelation was perceived by many German politicians as “scandalous”. They demanded an end to such ‘collaboration’ with the US and argued that the chancellor’s office should probably have been aware of the spy agencies’ cooperation.

So Germany aids the NSA in spying on German companies, in corporate espionage to the advantage of US companies? I am not surprised at anything the US does, but I am very surprised that the German government would assist the US. Is Germany a sovereign state? Does the NSA have pictures of Merkel? Is she a US secret agent? Is she getting money from the US like many other EU leaders? If Germany is a vassal of the US like the UK then the EU is going down with the US, eventually.

I had hoped that Germany would resist the US but my hopes are being dashed by these and other revelations. The German elites seem to be committed to vassalage to the US and will be dragged down with it.

The East is coalescing and leaving the West behind.

I have lived my entire life in the West but can’t stomach its foul smell anymore.

I am not surprised at all about the behaviour of German Government. I guess that is state of the art since WW2. In pre-internet-times we perhaps didn’t recognize it because it was difficult to find Information from other sources. I would also like to hear the answers on your questions about merkel. But for me the biggest question always will be: why do the Germans love that woman?
