The total nonsense this Trump guy spews out about NATO is totally absurd. I agree that the US policy related to NATO right now is not working The US is pushing their military junk through the throat of NATO; thereby ruining the military industry in Europe.
Europe has plenty of great industries who often make much better suited products for the European environment.
For instance the French have an great aircraft industry; like Dassault, Brequet, Aerospatiale etc. and others building super fighters and planes helicopters etc., which are lighter and faster and cheaper than any US plane. FN in Belgium makes the best guns there are, which do not jamb like some of our guns. Germany has MBB , Krups, Man etc. Eurofighter builders as well helicopters etc,
Thus the only reason the US has interest in NATO is pushing their weapons, which these countries absolutely don't get for free. For instance the US forced the Dutch to take the biggest piece of shit; the F35 while they did not want it. What are you going to do with an couple of these, which cost another fortune to maintain or train the pilots for it, while this country has plenty of F16's which were built in that country itself, thus gave jobs there etc. Where are you going to fly these couple of F35's on this postage stamp? Again this country only wants to force people to buy their junk to make MONEY, for their industry and their billionaires.
Sorry this has nothing at all something to do with protecting Europe. All of this is posturing and false information.
Russia will not attack Europe; they need Europe ( supply oil and gas in return for western goodies). Also they have have not forgotten WWII on their soil. The US is continuously provoking the Russians and irritating them. The Ukraine issue is between Russia and the Ukraine (not the US); only an border issue because some idiot drew the wrong borders after the war. Such can be easily solved by redrawing/negotiating this border. But the US wants to meddle and object of course; we like wars much better. Also the stationing of US troops all over Europe does not benefit Europe at all; all the supplies are flown in from the US, so the local people don't make a penny on these noisy intruders forced on to them. Sorry our foreign policies stink. All our wars are proof of that! Even worse with Trump. This is the European view of this subject.
