    All Europeans fancy themselves to be superior, despite their history.

    I know that Alisa Rosenbaum was born in Russia, but she moved to the United States in 1926, became a US citizen, and published Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead as American novelist Ayn Rand.
    Alisa Rosenbaum would certainly not have been able to publish in Russia, and likely not Germany at the time either. This odd bit of trivia seems only a desire on your part to point out her Jewishness.

    I'm guessing that US-German relations aren't in such a good state at the moment. The idea that spying on your friends is just business as usual came as a surprise to Angela Merkel.

    What should be Germany's next step?

    What should the US reaction to this expulsion be? An apology? Or reprisal?
    I'm wondering why A) why Germany would spy ,and B) what they wanted or were looking for.

    Yes. To preface, I am not interested in rehashing world war 2. The war and the subsequent 70 years of continual propaganda about it has created a minefield of memes. This is outside my interest and frankly beyond my ability to untangle. I will offer a link which explains how the USA still is occupying Germany below.

    We have all been conditioned to believe that WWII ended with the defeat of Germany and surrender on May 7th/8th of 1945, and that Germany as “liberated”. But is that really the case? NO. The victors (the ALL LIES) and the colonial government of the occupiers merely pretend that this is the case and have promoted and sold it as such. In the absence of formal recognition for the German Reich and any peace treaties, some 50+ countries which declared war against the German Reich are officially STILL at war with Germany today. They could simply resume hostilities against Germany at any moment, without any new declaration, or permission from the UN Security Council.

    If the German government wants the Americans to leave it is not a problem. Military Bases in Germany - NYTimes.com

    Germany doesn't need spies - they're smart and they're successful. Contrary to the US.

    lol wtf?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
