"NATO Expansion Technique: First Create a Problem, Then Impose Your Services"
Europe's leaders are truly hopeless if they accept these new demands for billions of dollars.
You know, one of the proximate causes of the American Revolt, 1775, against Great Britain was when the British sent troops to Boston and demanded that they be quartered in people's homes. That led to the first conflicts at places like Lexington and Concord and Bunker Hill.
Today, the US, effectively through NATO, occupies Europe, and now it wants the Europeans to pay for their own occupation.
This demand, of course, closely resembles the British demand to the people of Boston of about two hundred and forty years ago.
Well, we all know where that led.
My God, the United States is truly the world’s greatest, unapologetic hypocrite.
I’m just waiting for Nikki Haley - who is given to blurting out clichés from American history for the benefit of the other, unenlightened, 95% of humanity - to offer something from events in Boston. Maybe, “Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes”?
Somehow, I doubt she will, but it is certain that the more things change, the more they are the same.
