These Euro elites can't really be this stupid, can they?
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Thursday that Europe must not cave in to U.S demands to raise military spending, arguing that development and humanitarian aid could also count as security.
Fascinating. Those people really think that way, don't they?
It seems like just a couple of weeks ago that I was blogging that the Europeans wanted to increase their defense capabilities--and it didn't include development and humanitarian aid.
Of course that goal was aimed at weakening NATO--the real source of defense for Europe that Mattis wants strengthened--and strengthening the proto-imperial European Union project.
Pray tell, just how does Juncker count our Navy when it swoops in to lead a humanitarian rescue effort after some catastrophic natural disaster?
Say, given that migrants soak up social spending when they reach Europe, why not count European development and humanitarian aid that prevents economic migrants from reaching Europe as domestic social welfare spending? That makes far more sense to me.
Worthy European Gentlemen, wegs, for sure
