Chancellor Merkel meeting with Barack Obama: Germans disgruntled with USA.


German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to meet US President Barack Obama today:

May 02, 2014

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is in Washington Friday for talks with President Barack Obama…As the crisis in Ukraine has escalated, Merkel has spoken with Putin perhaps more frequently than any other European leader. The United States sees her as a critical channel of communication with the unpredictable Russian leader, and a key player in preventing other European Union members from relaxing sanctions.

The two leaders also will discuss the National Security Agency’s spy program, which targeted Merkel’s phone conversations and caused tension between the two allies.

The uncomfortable issue of NSA spying on America’s allies is sure to come up when Germany’s Angela Merkel and Obama meet Friday…

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will still be smarting from last year’s revelations of US eavesdropping on her cellphone when she visits the White House Friday for lunch and several hours of talks with President Obama…

Yet even as Ukraine receives top billing in Merkel’s visit, the outrage she – and indeed much of Germany – felt upon learning last year of NSA spying on German leaders, including Merkel, will not be far below the surface.

When Obama invited Merkel to Washington earlier this year, she said pointedly that the process of reestablishing trust would take “more than one trip.” Germany has pressed for a “no-spy” accord with the US like the one the US has with Britain and a few other English-speaking allies, but the US has made it clear it is not prepared to take that step, and Merkel is not expected to insist on that point.

This willingness to downplay an important issue that risks getting in the way of addressing another will put Merkel’s pragmatism on full display. It also provides a stark contrast with the response of another world leader who found her country embroiled in the NSA spying controversy.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff had been invited for what would have been the only state visit to the Obama White House last year. But with Brazilians still furious over revelations of US spying in their country, Ms. Rousseff called off the visit. US-Brazilian relations have not recovered since.

Merkel also faces heightened anti-American sentiments at home, German experts note.

Barack Obama desperately wants Angela Merkel to support his plans to apply more pressure against Russia related to Ukraine.  However, as Germany has major economic ties to Russia, Germany will keep those ties in mind.

Many Germans, including Angela Merkel, have been outraged about how the USA has spied on Germany and how it has treated its Anglo-allies much better.  Specifically, according to an NSA document, the only close friends that the USA has are Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Despite whatever public statements are released in a planned press conference about this meeting, the reality is that Germany is upset with the USA and is taking steps behind the scenes that some day the USA will truly regret.

Until that time, the crisis in Ukraine will give the appearance of some unity between the USA and Germany as neither wants Russia to dominate Ukraine.  However, even the Ukrainian crisis is showing Germany that it needs to be able to take military and diplomatic steps much more independent of the USA than it does now.  This will also not turn out well for the USA in the long run (cf. Daniel 11:39).

That being said, German businesses do not want sanctions on Russia according to the following from the Wall Street Journal:

May 2, 2014

BERLIN— Angela Merkel is carrying a clear message from Germany’s business lobby to the White House: No more sanctions.

Several of the biggest names in German business—including chemical giant BASF BAS.XE +0.70% SE, engineering group Siemens AG SIE.XE -0.96% , Volkswagen AG VOW3.XE -1.70% , Adidas AG ADS.XE +0.27% and Deutsche Bank AG DBK.XE -0.49% —have made their opposition to broader economic sanctions against Russia clear in recent weeks, both in public and in private. (Read the latest updates on the crisis in Ukraine.)

As a result, Germany’s position on additional, tougher sanctions is unlikely to shift, barring a dramatic escalation of the conflict in Ukraine—a message Ms. Merkel is expected to deliver to President Barack Obama when they meet in Washington on Friday, officials in Berlin say.

But as the situation in Ukraine is now involving military action, Angela Merkel may decide she needs to do something to support the USA’s position.
