17. Thanks Sabrina. And about that help...

Was just reading this comment from a European under an article titled "EU 'assessing U.S. relationship' amid PRISM spying claims". This is just one little guy's opinion. Imagine what their business community is going through thinking of intellectual property theft, industrial espionage, political blackmail etc....

Meh americans

Some ridiculous comments here, Europe has 731 million people across 48 countries, America has 314 million people, combined nominal GDP in 2010 of Europe is higher then the USA by a more than notable degree, in addition to more money, we have the highest living standards in the world, better healthcare, 5 of the top 10 countries in world's economies exist in Europe and so and so forth ...

Its far more likely that the stronger party Europe would be protecting the weaker party America from dangers than the other way around.
...

And its a pity all your much vaunted rights and unique democracy seem to have failed to protect you against the excesses of your own government, who seem to have decided to save the terrorists the trouble of ruining your freedoms by pre-emptively beating them to it, and from having one of the worst healthcare services in the developed world, which charge nie double per person to what say the UK's NHS provides (which btw is not the best in the world either, but close and far superior nonetheless), and when your government finally decided to no longer be sending old grannies into to the street in nightgowns dropped off in the middle of nowhere by taxis because they don't have medical insurance, half of your country decided to demonize the guy responsible for such a travesty, and equate him to the devil for being so evil as to actually give a shit if your fellow citizens live or die... The fact your doctors charge so ridiculously much is your own fault in addition, such things prove America as a whole has no sense of morality, or if it has one, its warped at best.

As a result European citizens aren't to pleased to be drip feeding our information to a people whose morals are so low they could hop under a floor barrel with a top hat on, whose politicians accept massive bribes on a daily basis while no one bats an eyelid, whose judges pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to be elected for privilege, whose laws are controlled primarily by lobby groups, and despite being aware of all this, whose people are so thick they still haven't worked out that it ceased being the best place to live in the world back when Roosevelt died (a man who btw wanted to introduce a national health service to the USA) by the time the puppet Reagan and has bank masters had finished has been getting steadily worse year on year, and rather then doing anything about fixing it, your politicians and their supporters, which seem to be about 49.9% of the us population per side, would rather insult each other and block any attempt by the other side to do anything positive about it in attempt to claim the credit for any benefit or prevent credit accruing to the other side, and whose efforts are of course equally and oppositely blocked by the other side regardless, so neither of you achieve anything but a whole load of time wasting, whilst your country dips even further into the figurative sea of feces before you.

America is just another country, it has its benefits and its downsides, and if you wish to operate worldwide, you WILL respect other countries laws, as we don't need you, you need us, everything you once exclusively made, China now makes too, and are only to happy to provide, hell it come out the same factory as the ones you sell, so why exactly do we still need you?, cant think of a reason.
