Follow the money. NATO is a huge engine for the military industrial complex.

Very interesting perspective! Are you really sure, Mr. Patrick, this is the real reason? 😊

Because Nato is a proxy for the US through which the US asserts influence in Europe and SE Asia under the pretence of acting in the interests of the Western developed nations when they effectively are patsies. Also being part of Nato ensures US companies of the military industrial state profit through being the preferred supplier for Nata arms. PBD, this is a little disingenuous and draws into question the motives for all your content

He is correct only partially. Being the world's hegemon comes at a cost!! European countries and NATO depend on America for their protection cause this was the plan all along by US. That's why US spends more and more of tax payers money on their defense while at the same time selling them billions of dollars every year in weapons. But guess where the profits go and who profits!!! Private US companies, their investors, shareholders and last but not least the US politicians who get money from the military industrial complex for their political campaigns to keep it that way, keep the business going and maintain the status quo!!! So PBD is correct but not entirely. If US wants Europe to be submissive then it has to spend money and then Europe does for the most part as US says, expects and demands of Europeans. PBD should not be complaining about it, he loves capitalism and that is just another example of it, just on a much larger multinational scale.

Donald Trump has been spouting this same speech you're doing since 1987. He said the same thing 😐

The EU can fend for themselves. We foot the bill to buy influence. It’s not about protecting them. It’s about owning them.

The usual myth that America is the great savior who protects the world.

As a Brit, he's correct. I'd rather us be able to fend for ourselves.

Though tbf, within NATO or any military alliance that America is in, America will obviously be the largest contributiors. Everyone should be meeting their obligations as a GDP percentage. If the US or anyone else wish to go over that percentage, thats up to them.

Because it's your war. We love Russia. We don't want to go to war with Russia.

This is partially truth
Germany was not allowed to have a military after ww2
France has a huge military which controls Africa
EU has a huge weapon industry
USA controls EU via its military power

Actually USA doesn't want the EU to spend money on their own defense and defense industry, the USA just want EU to spend more money buying overpriced USA weapone and thus funding the American defense industry, and if American pushes too hard that might just push the EU countries into investing in their defense industry all together which is the opposite of what USA wants

Yes and no. We do not want an EU army because everybody with common sense knows they will use it against the people of Europe who have different ideas.

One and only reason why the US should protect Europe, they have started all the issues that have caused Europe to need protecting.. we were happy trading with Russia until the US got involved.. Europe was trading with China until US sanctions.. America should foot the bill if they want Europe to side with them

Why germany is not doing it? Because when they invest extra 100 Billion Euro in the military Trump said „Be careful what you wish for“. Like wtf should germany do? They don‘t invest US talks shit, they invest US talks shit. With France you have a point, but don‘t talk about germany.
