Trump sets Angela Merkel Straight

It’s still an amazement that Angela Merkel still heads Germany.

 

Her failure to act on Islamic Jihadist who wander at will on Germany’s streets and failure to pay an appropriate fee for membership into NATO caused President Trump to tell her to take a hike and go it alone. 

 

Germany, in particular, has coasted under the American nuclear umbrella for decades, allowing it to concentrate entirely on rebuilding its domestic economy, infrastructure, and the social welfare state, and thumb its nose at American warmongering imperialism.

It took Donald Trump’s typical bluntness to finally get the message across that the Europeans are responsible for the mess of their own making.

 It’s one of the least attractive aspects of the German character; the gratitude that the immediate postwar generation felt for our having rescued them from Hitler and the love Germans felt for all things American have vanished. 

From David S. Morgan, in a speech in Brussels, outgoing U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that America’s military alliance with Europe faces a “dim, if not dismal” future, owing to what he characterized as the United States’ disproportionate funding of NATO operations, and of allies “willing and eager for American taxpayers to assume the growing security burden left by reductions in European defense budgets… .”

The United States contributes between one-fifth and one-quarter of NATO’s budget. In  FY 2017  that contribution totaled $711.8 million. (Source)

In their place has come a churlish, we-can-take-it-from-here mutter that does not become them. 

“The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out.

I’ve experienced that in the last few days.

We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands because it can no longer rely on the U.S. as a loyal ally.”- Chancellor Angela Merkel. 

Because things always go great in Europe when Germany goes it alone.

The North Atlantic alliance has its own military budget worth €1.29 billion ($1.4 billion), which is used to fund some operations and the NATO strategic command center, as well as training and research.

 

But it is minuscule compared to overall spending on defense by NATO countries, which NATO estimates will total more than $921 billion in 2017.

The alliance also has a civilian budget of €234.4 million ($252 million), used mainly to fund the NATO headquarters in Belgium, and its administration.

Spending is rising

Only five of NATO’s 28 members — the U.S., Greece, Poland, Estonia and the U.K. — meet the 2% target.

The rest lag behind. Germany is set to spend 1.2% of GDP on defense this year, France 1.79%. Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg all spend less than 1%. (Source)
