ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Richard Grenell, the new U.S. ambassador to Germany, has said Germany should have joined the military strike of the “P3” group in Syria. P3 stands for “Permanent 3,” the three permanent Western members of the U.N. Security Council: The U.S., the U.K. and France.

This arrogance is hard to bear. We are not America’s dumb vassals, but request to be at eye level with possible brothers in arms.

President Trump seems to be a strong advocate of deals. How about this: Make the P3 the P4 and finally give Germany a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council. Then we can talk about participating in military actions. Otherwise, forget it. We have our pride, too.
