Maybe he is setting prices so it becomes cheaper for them to raise their own Army to the task, rather than renting American mercenaries for a relative song.
Two generations of my family fought for Europe’s freedom in two world wars. And for what?
As lefties naturally complained about this. Why, no idea besides “Orange Man Bad!”
Hey Bernie, AOC, media and others, when you call Trump a Nazi, you are referring to your own ideology. NAZI english translation: National Socialist German Workers' Party.
You socialists are too stupid or lazy to even look up the translation. Hitler was a socialist...so are you pricks. I don't mean your as bad as that genocidal monster, but you folks adhere to the same ideology which always leads to totalitarian rule. Maduro's Venezuela is looking for you dipshits to further his National Socialism. What's stopping you? You people are the frigging Nazi's.
Agree with you and The president.
TIMES UP ! !
I think he knows they won’t pay 150% of the cost and is simply signalling that he’s willing to settle for payment of all or most of the cost with no premium. In other words,he is negotiating.
You are half right about the renting of American mercenaries. The problem is, to quote the guy from the Rock, “Mercenaries get paid.” We don’t.
The British had it right in the 18th and 19th centuries, when they employed the “Golden Cavalry of St. George”: they would use their navy to control the sea, but use their wealth from their empire to pay powers like Austria, Prussia, or Russia to do the bulk of the land fighting against France and its allies. We do some of the same these days, but not when it comes to Europe. Now, the Prussians use us to protect them from the Russians, and we bear most of the cost for doing so.
I totally agree!
How many troops do we have in Mexico ?
We’re going to occupy Mexico sooner or later.
I am afraid it is the other way around, when the invading population blooms we will be overrun and forced out by AOC types
We rebuilt Germany to keep all of western Europe out of communist hands back in the 40s and 50s. And every since, WE have provided their security. Every soldier put their lives on the line to protect Germany. Germany had a very very small military force. Practically no navy and out dated air craft to protect their skies. Our AF did that. Hundreds of thousands of us stood on the east west german border daily watching for the east germans and Russians to come across the Fulda Gap and invade. Only our nukes kept them from doing that. We rebuilt and protected Japan also from the Russians. Today we use their countries to protect them, and us. Gives us forward bases. I agree than now, in these better days, that if we are going to protect them, they should pay for it. We are basically the world’s police force. Everyone WANTS us to protect them while they bad mouth us all the day long. Every time they bad mouth us, we should just say fine, we are going home. They would shut their fat mouths then or we really should leave and let them fret for their selves. The new Germany got to be what it is today with US tax payer dollars and military people watching their butts. I spent 10 of my 20 years in the Army in Germany, one tour on the east west border, watching out for the Russians. The longer I was their the more I saw the loud mouthed Germans yack about Americans and how much they hated us. I wished back in the 1980s that we would just pack up and let the damned Germans fret for their selves against the Russians. Today, I think that even greater than back then. Let their so called European Army defend that bunch of cry baby loud mouth muzzie loving liberals fret for their own lands. To hell with them. Pay up or we are going home. Mzzzz. Murkle, meet Vlad Putin, your new leader.
