Will the U.S. defend Europe once again?


If anyone thinks that Putin will stop with Crimea, good luck with that. If I were living in Europe I would be sweating bullets. But no doubt most think we will be around to save their sorry you know what. With the feckless policies of Hillary Clinton, Obama and no doubt the Rasputin like Valerie Jarrett who is pulling most of the strings, just how prepared is Nato? Let us go down memory lane. Of course, the memory lane would not be complete without a clip of Chamberlain and his excitement over his appeasement with Hitler.

Back in October, 2011, I posted this U.S. is concerned by UK and Europe Defense Cuts

With the defence negotiations in near deadlock over about £1bn of cuts, the heads of all three armed services met the prime minister in Downing Street on Thursday to raise the alarm over the dangers of such a tight settlement.

Their warnings were amplified by Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, and Robert Gates, US defence secretary, who made public their worries over cuts across Nato.

Members of the organization are asked to spend 2 per cent of national income on defence.

Mr Gates expressed his fear that the US would be called upon more often to cover Nato capability gaps. “As nations deal with their economic problems, we must guard against the hollowing out of alliance military capability by spending reductions that cut too far into muscle,” he said.How psychic was that! More at CNBC

Simply amazing as I look back on my post on October 2011. Both Clinton and Gates knew that the NATO members were slashing budgets, yet as well knew that a $1.38 Billion headquarters was about to begin construction. Read the whole thing over at the Spectator if you have the stomach for all of this weird stuff.

“It is somewhat ironic that NATO breaks ground on its new headquarters at the same time the fundamental sinews binding the alliance together are coming apart,” says Marko Papic, a senior analyst at Stratfor, a global intelligence analysis firm based in Austin.

New $1.3 Billion headquarters just beginning construction

With policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic slashing public spending and searching for ways to reduce military budgets, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has just begun construction of a splendiferous new $1.38 billion headquarters on a 100-acre site in Brussels. Designed by Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, renowned for luxurious commercial buildings including the tallest in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the futuristic new NATO offices will feature eight sweeping wings covering 2.7 million square feet. Glass-walled elevators overlooking cavernous atriums showering natural light. Ecologically correct grass growing on the roof. Seventeen conference rooms. A range of amenities from cafeterias, restaurants, and banks, to shopping, sport, and leisure facilities. Pentagon staffers, eat your hearts out.

How did this all go down with Hitler? Sound familiar?

    Russia? Is this the same regional power Obalama talks about with its Navy docked in western hemisphere ports as it expands its influence in our backyard? While this may be true what’s really important to our national security is that the oil companies and the banks don’t get screwed in the Ukraine. In the final analysis Obalama is on his way to creating an international crisis which may end in a global military response which will make his Arab Spring meddeling look like chump change. Although, with his integrity and influence, he may be able to avert WW III by calling for an international Beer Summit at Martha’s Vineyard.

      I am with you. As soon as Europe figures out they might freeze to death, or pay the Russians a ransom for fuel, game on. My hunch the energy companies are ahead of the game.

    Nice to have you back Bunkerville. Doesn’t appear you lost any of your bite. And thanks for packaging up and putting a bow on on the mess in Europe and NATO. So meanwhile at home we are killing off the Tomahawks, the AWACs, decimating our air assets, Naval assets, and Marine contingents. What could possibly go wrong? Gotta love Progressive, head in the sand thinking.

    Military war or economic war. Think oil and gas. Russia and China have the Western World right where they want them.

    Europeans are smug about the situation and believe that US taxpayers will foot the bill, part and parcel, for Europe’s security. Obama is gifting money faster than the machines can print it. Taking into consideration that the job of the federal government is defense of America from foreign invasion on our soil, the Russian Federation has done absolutely nothing to harm us regarding any military action or hostility against the terra firma of the United States or our territories. What is observed is rank foolishness trying to palm itself off as leadership and failing miserably. You cannot make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.
    Europe, should be, on their own, and the only ones, having concern regarding Crimea, Ukraine, or the Russian Federation. Obama and Regime, are third string bench warmers sent in on Superbowl Sunday, and it, is definitely not, working, at all.
    The good news is, January 2017 will be upon us, if no cities in America are nuked (by either terrorists or false flag operations).

        Only if, America, doesn’t put a rope around his neck, if, anything like that were to happen. Then all the gun control people would be sick, because everyone would arm up, and remain that way.
