He's not thinking. I talked to one fellow yesterday, not my security buddy , but a retired green beret and asked him about this NATO bs thing.Making factual statements does not equate to being a fanboy. Putin is smart enough to remain in power for how long now? Stop thinking with emotions.
His words were they're a bunch of lying c&&nts who are just trying to blame him. This is their mess now , the Biden administration, and those from the Trump administration are trying to be relevant.
It was merely a negotiation strategy to get them to pay up. I believe only 5/29 we're paying their pledged amounts.
Trump wanted 4% of their GDP, we were paying 3.5% then while only 5/29 we're paying the pledged 2.5%.
Stump is too stupid to understand most NATO countries were putting their responsibilities on us. Kind of like a kid living high on the hog while their rich parents subsidize their rent , credit card bills, and cell phone.
