For those of you who are reading just the first couple of paragraphs (and eventually the title if youre having a good day) from an article, let me put you at ease from the beginning: yes, President Trump asked (rhetorically) if it was finally the time for the US to pull out of NATO, but, he continued, we most probably wont. The POTUS addressed this issue during his EU tour, in Brussels of all places. Now, you can go back to sleep, or play Pokemon, peck at your smartphone or whatever. Getting a little bit more serious, even if its summer and the living is easy, this question is like a splinter in many conservatives minds: is NATO becoming obsolete?
The thing about NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization for millenials) is that it was created to protect Western Europe from the possible expansion of the Soviet empire, also known as CCCP/The Evil Empire (in President Reagans parlance), during the Cold War era. The problem with NATO today is that Russia is no longer a real threat to anyone (except from snowflakes and libtards fantasizing about Russian bots and election meddling), as it makes for the biggest country in the world with the most resources, yet struggling between 2nd and 3rd world status, with a limp economy the size of Italy (maybe) and an aging and lacking a middle class population. Russia is a sad story by any metrics, and except from their respectable nuclear arsenal, theyre not a threat to anyone, realistically speaking. Their military spending is like what, 5 percent of ours? Get serious dude. And by that, I mean Hillary.

The change has come, she’s under his thumb.
China is a potentially a significant threat. Once long ago before the ChiComs had control they were a huge trading partner. More recently, since Nixon, they are again a huge trading partner. BUT from the beginning of the Great Thaw have been gaming the system at our expense and we let them.
In the Middle East, regionally, Turkey and Iran both are potential threats to peace and stability.
Russia? Was once an ally? Well sort of.
Why does the Godless Globalist Left hammer Russia, Russia, Russia? They hate the US for our freedom, They hate Israel for their brilliance, they hate the world because they cannot compete with the real producers.
So here we are.
A) The EU is trying to raise its own army and NATO is in the way
B) NATO is mostly a political organization with military assets
C) Russia’s shrinking white population; Russia’s quickly increasing Muslim population
D) Russian penchant for making a thing that works wonders but falls down on the second and all subsequent copies
E) Russia is run mostly by criminal organizations.
F) Military budgets are not a good comparison of military abilities or equipment; if you pretend to pay for something, it may not work well but you will have a lot of it - “Quantity has a quality all its own” - J Stalin.
Lets make sure never to have “pull out” and “merkel” in the same sentence again. Cool thanks
Whatever is claimed on IWB has to be separately verified.
