Why Europe Can’t Trust American Leadership Anymore

It is a sad day for America when you see that Europe can no longer trust our American leadership. We used to be the “go to guys” for just about every situation and were viewed as the card holders.

Secretary Kerry delivers remarks at the 52nd Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany on February 13, 2016 

As Written By Josh Rogin, Bloomberg View:

Europe is facing a convergence of the worst crises since World War II, and the overwhelming consensus among officials and experts here is that the U.S. no longer has the will or the ability to play an influential role in solving them.

At the Munich Security Conference, the prime topics are the refugee crisis, the Syrian conflict, Russian aggression and the potential dissolution of the European Union’s very structure. Top European leaders repeatedly lamented that 2015 saw all of Europe’s problems deepen, and unanimously predicted that in 2016 they would get even worse.

    How can Europe trust the USA when Americans can’t even trust its government? The goatfcker has turned his back on our allies time and again, especially Israel. He’s turned his back on them and funded our enemies. He’s a traitor to everyone but himself and his goatfcking butt buddies.
