The same difference

Trump told German Chancellor Angela Merkel via Twitter — just hours after meeting with her at the White House — that Germany would be held accountable for its share of the NATO defense budget: I

 

Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Nevertheless, Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!

 

Merkel Warns: 'U.S. No Longer a Reliable Ally for Europe'

          I don’t think the military industrial complex in any of the larger nations will allow the truly needed transformations. They and their allies in the national deep states and banks would prefer a major war than major disarmament since the current conflict actors are little more than guerilla armies (ISIS, al Qaeda, Taliban, Tamil Tigers, etc…) whose largest weapons outside of their home regions are airplanes, trucks and makeshift bombs.
