Just as an Aside

by Regis Boff

Just as an aside, Trump in the Times this morning stated that he would consider coming to the aid of a NATO country only if that country contributed reasonably to its upkeep.
He has corrected, in one master stroke, one of the longest standing idiocies in world affairs. NATO, in the world of thermonuclear war, has long been both dangerous and irrelevant.
The countries belonging to NATO ( mostly EU nations) are more likely to collapse by financial lunacy than by invasion.
We would be far better off rebuilding and policing Chicago and Detroit than Greece and Italy.
