First of all i think it’s pretty rude how Trump bosses around the NATO-General.
Believe me: NO COUNTRY LOVES TO BE DEPENDENT ON THE FOSSIL FUELS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY, be it Saudi Arabia (Oil) or Russia (Gas).
Yes you are right Mr Trump – Germany alone spends 50 Billion € a year just on oil imports.
That’s lot of money that could be saved – if Saudi oil AND Russian gas could be replaced with renewable hydrogen. (and it can!)
NATO is in fact under US control (as far as i know).
If Trump wants to change US foreign policy to save money – Let’s dismantle NATO! PLEASE! GO AHEAD! PLEASE REMOVE THE US-NUKES FROM EUROPE AND GERMANY! Thank you!
Is Germany and Japan allowed to have it’s own nukes? (i guess not… so this is HOW independent Germany and Japan and South Korea really are… NOT AT ALL)
“the (US) nuclear weapons stored in non-nuclear countries are guarded by United States Air Force (USAF) personnel and previously, some nuclear artillery and missile systems were guarded by United States Army (USA) personnel;
the Permissive Action Link codes required for arming them remain under American control.
In case of war, the weapons are to be mounted on the participating countries’ warplanes.”
“According to the press, Eastern European Member States of NATO have resisted the withdrawal of the shared nuclear bombs from Europe, fearing it would show a weakening of U.S. commitment to defend Europe against Russia.”
