    US, England no longer reliable partners for EU: Merkel

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned members of the European Union (EU) that they should no longer count on the United States and Britain as reliable partners, saying that the continental bloc "must take its fate into its own hands.”
    Merkel said Sunday that the EU is faced with an alliance in West divided by presidency of Donald Trump in the US and Britain’s decision to leave the EU, adding that a recent summit of seven wealthy nations, known as G7, in Belgium, proved that EU’s intimate bonds with the two countries were no longer tenable.
    “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 said while addressing an election rally in Munich, southern Germany.
    She said Germany and France, as the two dominant forces in the EU, have to seek broader relations to compensate for the lack of commitment shown by the US and Britain.
    "We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands,” Merkel said, adding, "we have to fight for our own destiny”.

    She had announced creation of 4-th Reigh, imho. It is stupid European tradition. At least one time in century, they unites and go in another crusade against Russia. Every time they return home beaten, with "Russian occupants", who try to teach them culture and civilisation.

    What is going on in Europe these days is very intriguing, Britain has left the EU and there is strong support for exiting the EU in many other countries such as France, Hungary, Spain etc. Turkey is also looking at referendum on whether or not they should go for EU membership. It seems that Trump is pushing a lot of buttons. Germany is looking to consolidate its geopolitical position.

    True one, what is your analysis of this situation with the EU and the US? How serious do you believe the tensions to be?

    @Falcon There is all ways room for improvement. Then i will say leadership. Beside that zero tension. But there is a rumors whispering, saying that there will be a big wave from America side to Europe leaders. Key word is discipline. And i would not like to be one of the leaders on Europe side

    Do you think, that leash for European "leaders" will be shorter, and may be, will become a noose?
