    Default Merkel touts "Global Order" during US Congress address

    Note the very EU-propaganda-style language she uses, in addition.

    NWO conspiracy theorists, please stay off this thread. The big matter here is Germany's expansion of hegemony; in the speech, Merkel shows the true ambition behind the EU.

    German Chancellor Merkel addresses Congress

    November 3, 2009 11:36 a.m. EST

    Washington (CNN) — Six days before the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed a joint meeting of Congress on Tuesday and challenged U.S. lawmakers to tear down other walls.

    "Today's generation needs to prove that it can meet the challenges of the 21st Century. In a sense, we are able to tear down walls of today," she said.

    What that means, Merkel said, is "creating freedom and security, creating prosperity and justice. And it means protecting our planet." ...

    Merkel also touched on the global financial crisis, saying that the "near collapse of the markets has shown what happens when there is no underpinning order."

    "A globalised economy needs a global order ... a global framework of rules," she said. "Without global rules and transparency and supervision, we will not gain more freedom, but rather risk the abuse of freedom and thus risk instability." ...

    Thanks for the Henning Wehn clip, Stewie. The xenophobe remark was directed at the OP, who actually believes in the rise of the Fourth Reich.
