Merkel And Germany Want US To Pay 75% Of NATO Costs FOREVER or Else…

United States’ share is huge. In 2014, the US spent about $582 billion (£400 billion), almost three times more than all the other NATO states combined. Business Insider.

 

Donald Trump said on Saturday that Germany owed “vast sums of money” to Nato and the US, even though the alliance does not stipulate payments to America. It seems that Merkel and the other Bilderberg EU gangsters are pissed off that Trump not only wants them all to pay their minuscule share of NATO costs, but the EU should pay BACK money that Obama let them off.

 

That is, why on earth are the US taxpayers paying the bulk of EU protection costs? I have said more than once, this is pure rip off as is Japan and the other Asian ‘partners’ all of whom run trade surpluses with us.

 

They should be paying 100% of our overseas military costs! As should Israel who leeches off of us outrageously, as well.  The US pays THREE QUARTERS if all NATO costs.  This is theft.

 

Trump’s public appearances with Merkel betrayed an awkwardness between the two leaders, including during two widely remarked upon appearances in the White House. In one, the leaders failed to stage a handshake for cameras in the Oval Office, and in another Merkel looked baffled by comments made by Trump during a joint press conference. Before the visit Trump had repeatedly called Merkel’s policies “insane” and a “disaster” for Germany.

 

He added: “During our meeting, I thanked Chancellor Merkel for the German government’s commitment to increase defense spending and work toward contributing at least 2% of GDP.”

 

Germany isn’t broke.  They have money.  They export to the US.  They should pay at least 15% of NATO costs, not 1.5%.

 

On Saturday Ivo Daalder, who was permanent representative to Nato from 2009 to 2013, respond to Trump in a series of tweets.

 

“Sorry, Mr President, that’s not how Nato works,” he wrote. “The US decides for itself how much it contributes to defending Nato. This is not a financial transaction, where Nato countries pay the US to defend them. It is part of our treaty commitment.

 

Typical of the idiots who are misruling Europe, destroying it via inviting a Muslim male invasion.  So, this isn’t a ‘financial transaction????’ Well, now it should be one!!!

 

Why on earth must WE protect Europe from their own stupidity forever??? Eh?  You guys screwed it all up several times.  You all should pay us 100% for protecting your sorry asses from your own chaos.

 

“All Nato countries, including Germany, have committed to spend 2% of GDP on defense by 2024. So far five of 28 Nato countries do. Those who currently don’t spend 2% of their GDP on defense are now increasing their defense budgets. That’s a good thing.“

 

“But no funds will be paid to the US. They are meant to increase Nato’s overall defense capabilities, given the growing Russian threat. Europe must spend more on defense, but not as favor (or payment) to the US. But because their security requires it.”

 

These idiots think they can sneer at us.  I hope Trump slaps them all down.  Good grief.  How long will we pay for the EU messes???  Time for them all to grow the hell up.  This snotty attitude of the EU ‘representatives’ pisses the hell out of me.

 

“We fought two world wars in Europe, and one cold war,” he wrote. “Keeping Europe whole, free, and at peace, is vital US interest.”

 

The stupid Europeans dragged us into not one or two wars but endless wars.  Over and over again, they project events driving these to wars.  They want war with RUSSIA now and they and the warhawks in the US have been pushing for war with Russia and this disgusts me no end.

 

These utter fools cannot comprehend, WWIII will annihilate Europe.  No  one will survive except a handful of Neanderthals.  At this point, good riddance since they don’t want to do sane things that stop these events.  To hell with them all.

    Trump should dissolve our involvement in NATO, and start a new defense organization. Those who want to contribute to a shared defense can do so, and those who cannot/will not are now allowed to fend for themselves without “imperialistic” America.

    That should get interesting since they have already let the barbarians in the gates, so to speak.

    These countries not only take us for granted, bitch about us, but then say we are wrong for asking this pathetic situation to change. Do they not see how arrogant and obnoxious their spokespeople sound? Some of these countries won’t put even one soldier at risk, while they ask us to sacrifice. That is so far beyond stupid for us, and I think it will change.

    The European elites wants the US to protect us from an imaginary threat from Russia, a country which Europe has poked in the eye for a long time. This is beyond stupid! The biggest treat to Europe at the moment comes from our own incompetent leaders.

    I meant threat, not treat. Pardon my English 🙂

    The breakdown in law and order in Muslim neighborhoods in Paris is being fueled by impunity for criminals and a lenient judicial system, according to Hugues Moutouh, a former advisor to the Interior Ministry.

    As it is, here. The new mayor of NYC has erased all the anti-crime efforts of the previous two mayors and the city is becoming a nice hell hole again.

    I agree, Nani, that Russia is certainly not the threat to Europe that your leaders are! They are trying to scare us about Russia here in the US, even though most of our whore congressman and senators, and secretary of state, traded with Russia for cold cash in their “charity funds”. Russia is actually trying to keep Europe safe and the leaders are selling out. I am sure cash is involved because of the money paid to get and disburse various refugees.

    I wonder if these European countries that have allowed the barbarians in even would know how to defend themselves if necessary.

    We can’t even pretend to defend the Mideast because they are always fighting each other, and always changing sides. (the Taliban is our ally, the Taliban is not). Unfortunately, our leaders sell OUR soldiers out for cash for weapons deals.

    OT, Obama can’t help himself trying to fu** our country help, even when he has been kicked to the curb, so to speak:

  9. This is based on a fallacy. The chart does not show that the US pays 75% of NATO costs. It is not a chart of NATO costs at all. It is a chart of how much each country pays toward its own defense. The defense budgets of NATO countries. Not the NATO paid costs of NATO countries.

  10. Christian W

    Germany isn’t broke. They have money. They export to the US. They should pay at least 15% of NATO costs, not 1.5%.

    No they shouldn’t. NATO is a relic needs to be dissolved.

    floridasandy: I wonder if these European countries that have allowed the barbarians in even would know how to defend themselves if necessary.

    That’s the problem; the authorities don’t want to defend us from the migrant thugs they have invited in. Ordinary citizens who gets robbed, beaten, raped and even murdered by these thugs appear to be regarded by our leaders as expendable peasants, not worth saving. This is the price we have to pay for allowing millions of muslims to settle in Europe, and it is a price worth paying according to our leaders.

    The backlash in Europe is bound to get nasty.

  12. floridasandy

    there may be a backlash in the US as well.

    today’s quote:
    Republicans and Democrats alike, meanwhile, are concerned by Trump’s quest to boost defense spending by making massive cuts to foreign aid.

    why would that be? why would every leader NOT put their own country first?

    we have to wonder what the heck is going on in the world that our elected officials care so little about us. At least Trump brings it to light in America, and there is still some hope but we need to kick our congressmen and women OUT.

    Just as Merkel should put the German citizens first. (although she does not, and I don’t see your other candidate likely to do so either. The Germans need to get somebody out there fast that looks out for the citizens of Germany).

  13. Lou

    Who goose steps along with Frau Merkel? Who is really running the show?

    Well, many european countries feel that having already agreed to “limited sovereignty” and be client states (rather than allies) of the USA with their foreign and defence policies largely controlled by the DOD and the State Department, the USA might as well pay for most of the related expenses. As an example of how much european foreign and defence policy are managed by the USA, compare these two pieces by two conservative UK authors:

    Andrew Marr:

    “In 1942, as Rommel’s tanks drew nearer, and Churchill was fulminating about Cairo being a nest of ‘Hun spies’, the British ambassador told Egypt’s King Farouk that his prime minister was not considered sufficiently anti-German and would have to be replaced. The King summoned his limited reserves of pride and refused. It was, he insisted, a step too far, a breach of the 1937 treaty.
    Britain’s ambassador simply called up armoured cars, a couple of tanks and some soldiers and surrounded King Farouk in his palace. The ambassador walked in and ordered the monarch to sign a grovelling letter of abdication, renouncing and abandoning ‘for ourselves and the heirs of our body the throne of Egypt’. At this royal determination crumbled. The king asked pathetically if, perhaps, he could have one last chance? He was graciously granted it and sacked his prime minister. Life went on, the war went on.“

    Jacob Rees-Mogg:

    ““When Jack Straw was replaced by Margaret Beckett as Foreign Secretary, it seemed an almost inexplicable event. Mr Straw had been very competent — experienced, serious, moderate and always well briefed. Margaret Beckett is embarrassingly inexperienced.
    I made inquiries in Washington and was told that Donald Rumsfeld, the Defence Secretary, had taken exception to Mr Straw’s statement that it would be “nuts” to bomb Iran. The United States, it was said, had put pressure on Tony Blair to change his Foreign Secretary. Mr Straw had been fired at the request of the Bush Administration, particularly at the Pentagon. … The alternative explanation was more recently given by Irwin Stelzer in The Spectator; he has remarkably good Washington contacts and is probably right. His account is that Mr Straw was indeed dismissed because of American anxieties, but that Dr Rice herself had become worried, on her visit to Blackburn, by Mr Straw’s dependence on Muslim votes. About 20 per cent of the voters in Blackburn are Islamic; Mr Straw was dismissed only four weeks after Dr Rice’s visit to his constituency.
    It may be that both explanations are correct. The first complaint may have been made by Mr Rumsfeld because of Iran; Dr Rice may have withdrawn her support after seeing the Islamic pressures in Blackburn. At any rate, Irwin Stelzer’s account confirms that Mr Straw was fired because of American pressure.”
