In all honesty nato is kinda nessecary in the grand scheme
the issue is that the nations whom were protected not abuse us more then the russians do
But now that the us is ahead it would get to the point that the other nations are hokding it back
They do not feed nor allow free use of the land on nato bases
we pay to feed nato, and us bases for nato are RENTED
we have to pay them fucking rent to protect them
and thats not even the worst of it
Thankfully a serious refunding of the military is gonna happen here
Might be an embezzlement scheme actually
i always wondered why the US rented bases on foreign soil and then those countries expected us to help them for free.
A way to funnel money to corrupt leaders
like bitch, you want our help for free, least you could do is give us the base for free
look at all the nations around the world we protect, they dont lift or spend a finger on their own military
they cant even meet the demand of 3% gdp
THREE PRECENT IS ASKING TO MUCH OF OUR ALLIES TO DO AND THEY SIGNED A DOCUMENT SAYING THEY WOULD!
Kek, and they have the gall to complain about the us moving their embassy
Memes be upon him.
I loved the speaxh nikki haley gave
The un one
i think more than few of those countires might be taking the US's large military budget and power as way to supplement their own national defense so they can spend their money on social policies, then publicly shame us for our military they use
And it's not a requirement, just a VERY SIGNIFICANT URGING.
oh hell no, im syaing this.
they said they could meet it and it wouldnt be an issue in the past
and never the fuck do it
's just the actual letter of the document
No, the problem is that the Soviets collapsed
NATO countries definitely met the requirement
Until the USSR went belly up
Or they could atleast appear greatful
Now they got terrorism and we need allies even more
could you imagion what would happen if the US and russia decided ya know what. Fuck it. Lets end this terrorism bullshit
Well, get that wall, vetting, should stop more recruits
and israel got to hold the camera and watch as the us and russia through their entirem ilitary weight into it
Wasnt isis on the verge of loosing recently
yeah becuase the secretary of offense took the shackles off our military
