Donald J. Trump‏
@realDonaldTrump

North Korea has shown great disrespect for their neighbor, China, by shooting off yet another ballistic missile...but China is trying hard!
REMEMBER this is the same President that sent the "lost carrier strike force to Korea"...and threatened and threatened and now it is up to the Chinese?????

WHEN everyone knows that NK is largely supported now by Russia.....

White nationalists and or white supremacists have killed three Americans in the last two weeks..and not a single Muslim from the Trump banned Mulsin immigration list has killed a single American in 40 years.....

OTD.....Reference VN Vets and their families....on this Memorial Day.......

Those of us that served in VN and lost friends there...LET us not forget the current President dodged the VN draft FOUR times and he in an campaign interview stated the reason was for a "foot bone spur"......and when the Reporter asked which foot he could not remember....

Most of us can remember each day of VN and he cannot remember what foot?????

We had in Basic Training Ft. Polk a lumberjax from AL who had an axe accident and it had hit his right foot leaving a deep scar and injury that bled badly everytime he did road marches but he always completed them limping all the way and not complaining ...we though he would be eventually medically discharged for an injury eveyone saw he had..BUT no he was then sent to advanced Infantry Training and then on to VN where he was killed four months later...leaving a wife and small daughter .......

BUT WAIT ...when I was slugging it out with the NVA 9th Division in the Fish Hook 111 Corp on the Cambodian border with a Cambodian recon company....this was what Trump was doing with his VN war deferrment....

We fought for the Country, our own honor, and to survive yet Trump cannot seem to remember if he has Russian connections????

AND he cannot stop singing and moving during the National Anthem at the Tomb of the Unknown which contains the remains of an Unknown VN vet...he is not at a proTrump rally....

SAD............

Trump took another family's coat of arms as his own without permission—& changed “Integritas” (integrity) to “Trump”

Ann Coulter‏
@AnnCoulter

We should form a military alliance with Russia to protect it from Western Europe.

Steve Sailer‏
@Steve_Sailer
Problem with European unification today is that Euro elites see it a desirable not for Europeans but for non-European migrants.

Secondly, weapon design and purchases are still being done via a State demanded and supported set price...unheard of in the West....as the sole customer of these defense industries is still the Russian state supported by defense exports which the State uses as an piece of their FP strategies...which the West also does but still there is a profit margin there that does not exist in Russian industrial business deals...

What is interesting is that both the CDU and the SPD will not increase the German military budget beyond what they economically feel the correct level is as they must then sell it to the general public....

Interesting as well is the concept of three new divisions each having 8 Bdes...an unusual configuration as the US runs a different model making these divisions "heavy divisions".....
On the contrary, the article does address "bang for the buck". The German general public remain mostly opposed to using military force to protect NATO allies, so perhaps Germany should reconsider its membership in NATO...
