Germany: We no longer recognize the United States as a superpower
@yogthos The “quote” the article writer extrapolates doesn’t seem to be present. “We can no longer afford to take our lead from or coordinate with them” seems more accurate.
@ricardojmendez yeah fair enough, Germany breaking ranks with the states is definitely a big deal
@yogthos Agreed, which is why that title is such a wasted opportunity.
Germany is saying "we no longer think you are making sane, socially-acceptable choices".
Article rephrases as "you ain't looking so mighty no mo'!"
