The unneeded burden Aug. 18th, 2016 @ 07:40 pm
In a recent NYT interview, Trump warned he'd change things in NATO if he became president, the US likely refusing to defend those NATO members who refuse to fulfill their commitments to the alliance, namely investing at least 2% of their GDP into defense. His works may've caused a slight panic in some East European capitals, where it was interpreted almost as an outright rejection of the infamous Article 5 of the NATO code, which says any attack on any member automatically means a collective military response from the whole alliance.

It's not just about them admiring each other - there's the issue of money in politics...

If it hasn't become patently obvious by now what Erdogan has been after in the wake of the purported "coup" (which most people, both within Turkey itself and abroad now seem to be convinced was a false flag, intended to untie Erdogan's hands for a mega-crackdown), then I don't know when it would.
