GIs and Germany: A long love affair may soon be over was in the Stars and Stripes yesterday.

The article presents the story from the American view of it, I would like to read/know how the Germans feel about it and their views. Do you have any references?

I searched around a bit and didn't find anything. I only know anecdotal evidence -- young people who have said we're not needed anymore, etc. There's stuff on the German radio every day about how many jobs will be lost when the bases close here. Interestingly enough, I've met very few Americans who are excited about leaving. I can think only of two others besides myself who think that the "love affair is over."
