The reputation of the United States has been sinking to new lows across the world daily. Aside from feelings of fear and hate among many people regarding the use of drones, which have severely injured and killed many civilians, in the war on terror, there are now deep concerns about revelations the U.S. government has even been spying on its allies. Al Jazeera reported on Oct. 24, 2013, "Report: US and UK spied on Italian government."
The Italian weekly L'Espresso reported on Thursday that U.S. and British intelligence services have monitored Italian telecommunications, targeting the government and companies as well as suspected terrorist groups. This report is based on evidence from U.S. intelligence contractor turned whistle-blower Edward Snowden. It is likely to fuel growing anger among Washington's European allies dealing with the activities of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).
Reuters has reported, "Italian PM says spying by allies unacceptable." Prime Minister Enrico Letta has said, "Alleged monitoring of Italian telecommunications by U.S. and British intelligence is inconceivable and unacceptable." The issue has been set to dominate a meeting of European Union leaders after German Angela Merkel recently called U.S. President Barack Obama to protest reports, which have been judged credible by Berlin, that her mobile phone had been bugged.
It's all really rather shocking as human rights abuse reports in the form of police brutality and abuses by psychiatrists also surface daily across the United States. In a sense it appears the U.S. intelligence agencies, police and psychiatrists are in a close running historically with the Nazi Gestapo and Nazi physicians for first place as world's leading brutal human rights abusers. The primary difference appears to be the targets of America's tyranny are not primarily the Jewish people, as was the case with Hitler and the Nazis. Instead, the Jewish people and Israel appear to have helped the United States develop the most untrustworthy, unethical and brutal government in modern history.
