Re: <nettime> merkel, macron: europe on its own

who supported what you call occupation had their strings cut. The
Chancellor power game is that audiences may read into statements whatever
they like to, or what suits their views. Policy is incoherent but
afterwards it will look just if there had been a line or long game.
