Conservatives ignore history.The whole point of NATO was to keep Germany from re-arming and starting WWIII. Now Germany is being castigated for not having an army.The History Of Economic Sanctions - History Video! - DickMorris.com
Kind of like 101 for all you self proclaimed experts out there... (either you are in a position of leverage or your not), Just because being economically raped has become the status quo (for the US) doesn't mean that asking for some 'metaphorical' foreplay and dinner is an egregious affront to the various rapists who are now being asked to chip in on the dinner bill. Sure all the rapists will throw a tantrum at any change in their old hat 'behavior'...
Look at the trade deficits we have with the various "partners" around the globe... Germany a wealthy, propped up country doesn't contribute toward their defense as they are 'required' to do. Their fine automobiles represent some 90 % of the luxury automotive market in the US with 2ish % tariffs on our end compared to 10ish % on their end.
For over 100 years, the Allies have tried to keep Germany weak and dependent on others for their defence. After WWI, Germany was economically punished for starting the war. The anger of the German people lead to Hitler’s rise and WWII.
After WWII, the West helped Germany rebuild. No reparations, no punishment and no weapons. Now the US wants Germany to rearm. Madness.
