Europe should have a say itself and not be relied on Nato . Europe should spent on own defense Strategy with real European military departements and headquarter . Stollenberg won’t like this but at least Trump won’t intimidate Europe that way .

The insistence which we are hearing more and more that the American President is the leader of the free world – or similar statements – is arse licking at its very worst. Considering the complete idiot that Trump appears to be, the way in which he is trampling over human rights of the American people (never mind anyone else), promoting financial gain as a path to greater power and dismissing environmental issues – who wants this man as leader of anything? Even if we admit that he is just a figurehead puppet with strings being pulled by others behind the scenes – well, that makes it even scarier.
And doesn’t this just show where priorities lie? European members of NATO making definitive commitments to add their pennies to the purse but climate change and environmental issues hardly get a hearing. Armaments and military spending is big bucks, just like fossil fuels. The US is undoubtedly a leader of the world – the leader in indiscriminate and uncaring forging ahead to maximise power and prestige at the unconsidered cost of human life and suffering. And NATO trotting along with shirt tails firmly grasped. The view from where I am sitting is disgusting, disturbing and shameful.
