The ails of a friend ...

are being felt by their friends, too.

I have been raised in what used to be the "western" Federal Republic of Germany, and there never was any doubt for me that the United States of America were our natural ally, and the locals´ relationship I´ve experienced with American citizens, servicemen, associates or others was better than friendly. And I´ve spent my formative years in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz (Eng. Rhenania-Palatinate), formerly nicknamed "Nato´s biggest aircraft carrier", so there was much familiarity either way. There were attacks (and only singular events) on service men, perpetrated by the extremist and thoroughly isolated "Red Army Faction", but they mostly attacked the German state, killing politicians, Federal Judges, the police etc.

Americans are my best buddies.

Overall, I expect most of my countrymen, or at least most of those that were fortunate to grow up on this side of the Iron Curtain, would still consider the citizens of the USofA their allies and friends. Even when old Rummy complained that we "Old Europeans" would not join the Iraq quagmire willy-nilly.

And that´s where the hurt comes in. When you always had a high opinion of the USA as THE modern republic, what happens right now is a hurtful experience. I´ll give you a very mild example:

I can only answer this in pure GI lingo: WTFO?

Folks, comparing the circumstances of the election leading to G.W.Bush´s 2nd term, I don´t think any reasonable persons can have any doubt that Barack H. Obama is the rightfully elected President.

DEAL WITH IT. GET WITH THE PROGRAM.
STOP FOAMING AT THE MOUTH.
BE REASONABLE AND ABOVE ALL, RATIONAL.
BE THANKFUL THAT CORRUPT BUNCH THAT GAVE AWAY REPUBLICAN AND ALL-AMERICAN VALUES TO THE LOWEST BIDDER IS REMOVED.
REMEMBER YOUR HISTORY.

Hell´s bells, if this sh** carries on the only thing you can wish for is Old Zachary Taylor to come back from the grave and getting to work on all those Birthers, Medicaid-bashers and "Hussein Osama"-baiters that desecrate your country´s flag and heritage.

Germany was once a country that was torn in strife like the USA is now. What came of it? That little Austrian Charlie Chaplin lookalike that ruined most of the world in his short career. You know, the same guy Obama is being pictured as or with:



Suckers, you have no idea what you´re talking about.

Thank you for listening. Excuse a concerned friends open words, if you please. I sincerely hope you lot pull through that crisis in your democracy.
