Times have changed. The USSR is gone. Americans are sick of wars. We don't want go to war for Europe anymore. Let Europe pay for their own wars with their own money and send their own men to die in battle. Better yet, Europe stop provoking war with Russia if you want peace. Trump will reorient Europe and the world to the new reality--the US is no longer your sucker. You're fired, Nato.
