    Regarding the US, the biggest reason for peace in Europe is the US. Instead of posting spiteful, negative comments about the US, just remember that.
    no, no, no the reason there were no conflicts in Europe since the fabulous French (the ones who hadn't surrendered) single handedly rebuffed a small contingent of misguided germans (twice) is the Glorious EU. In fact the EU has meant we avoided all conflicts worldwide other than those started by the great Satan and its allies.


    Tusk you are a tit! You can't be part of a Golf Club, Bar Round etc if you don't pay your membership fees. As you know its only fair. Next you will be expecting Galileo gps guided Unicorns to protect your country the next time some nutter gets into control in Europe.

    Trump is about to hold an unscheduled press conference. Should be fun.

    Imagine trump voice

    'yeah the NATO is not for us. It's a bad deal. A big bad deal. We're done protecting you guys, but we're going to leave our weapons here, Mmmm okay.'


    Just realised, what if... the US withdraws from NATO and May's cosying up to Trump during the visit.... my goodness, Corbyn, save us!!
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    The chances of the USA withdrawing from NATO are less than the chances of you booking into a decent hotel and successfully claiming it back on expenses.

    The sooner we get away from fossil fuels and abolish war/arms for profit the better.
    I wouldn't bet any of your hard-earned on either of those things happening any time ever...

    Its totally fair that only the US, UK, Greece & Estonia pay their way in this club I mean its not like we will use the course or the caddies to save our arses!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NATO_operations

    but luckily the EU have had lots of training missions after 2003 though none with hotels as poor as Scooters normal choice.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...European_Union

    oh Europe found $33Bn down the back of the sofa since last time he asked.

    Of course they did, it's the 40 billion we have to pay them minus Juncker's bar tab...

    It's a classic Trump "win".

    Gets the headlines slagging off NATO. Turns up. Announces they've ( NATO, ex-US ) have agreed to increase spending.

    Whereas all they've done is recommitted to the 2% target.

    Only a handful actually do commit to 2%. They are lying (again).
