US out of Germany

This would be most excellent news indeed. Having noticed that WWII is over and the Soviet Union is no more, the God-Emperor is talking about shutting down the US bases in Germany and bringing the troops home.

Donald Trump is considering scaling down or withdrawing the US military from Germany, according to a report ahead of the NATO leaders’ meeting. The US president has blasted allies for chipping in too little to the bloc’s budget.

The decision to explore the option of pulling 35,000 US troops out of Germany came after Trump floated the idea during a meeting with White House and military aides, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing government officials who spoke on condition of anonymity. The president was reportedly frustrated by the fact that Germany and other NATO allies don’t pay their “fair share” into the budget of the alliance.

 ….Germany pays 1{0ce1a054466f479f1fb0ac20b94979d66b3386d5b658fff7ef3ba76c38796cd5} (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4{0ce1a054466f479f1fb0ac20b94979d66b3386d5b658fff7ef3ba76c38796cd5} of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense? We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. Change is coming!

Except the US obviously is not protecting Europe from anyone. All those expensive troops on location didn’t help Germany avoid invasion by 1.6 million migrants, so obviously there is no reason for them to be there anymore.
