Japan, South Korea and Taiwan depend on the US Navy to keep the peace in the South Pacific and protect them from China and North Korea. China’s threats include Chinese military bases being built on islands owned by Japan. North Korea threatens the region with nuclear weapons.
Europe depends on the US Military in NATO to protect it from Russia. Europe’s most dangerous sovereign threats come from the EU and from the UN sponsored Muslim invasion of Europe. In both cases, European Parliaments authorized these threats and it has been a disaster for European citizens.
Saudi Arabia depends on the US Navy to keep their ocean trade routes open and protect them from Iran. US intervention in the Middle East has been excessively expensive since 1990 when we extracted the Iraqi Army from Kuwait.
Trump’s comments that the US government should charge these countries for the costs of providing US Navy and other military assistance is refreshing as we bounce over $20 trillion in debt. Trump’s actions to withdraw US funding from the UN Climate Change hoax and his call for NATO countries to pay their 2% of GDP are also encouraging.
