We should pull our troops from Germany, all of them. Make it a mass exodus, no warning , no explanation, and watch the economy of the locals fall. We literally owe Germany nothing. If anything it is they who owe a profound debt.

They can't get over the fact that Britain outplayed them. They think they deserve to lead Europe. It drives them to make bad decisions.

I don't care what motivates them. We spend a fortune on bases and Germany's defense and we have since the end of WW II. We owe them nothing . They have money to burn on their own citizens, as we should be doing, because we are their shield. Let them stand alone or pay for our services.

Germany has plenty of money to pay for the welfare state and untold numbers of illegal immigrants. Why can't they pay their NATO bill?

Only problem -- the USA troops aren't in Germany are not in Germany to protect Germany. There are serious USA motivating factors for them being there.

Only Trump and this Ambassador doesn't realize we all know that.

We don't spend money on defending Germany to defend Germany -- we do it to protect our own interests.

Seriously kids -- this is not complicated.

You have to be naive to think that the USA sets up military bases around the world soley to protect the rest of the world.

Are you really all that naive?

This is one area where I absolutely agree with Trump. The NATO numbers are staggering. If you belong to any club and one guy (who is in big time debt) is footing the bill, while most are shirking, that is a recipe for eventual demise of the club.
