Trump pulls thousands of US troops out of Germany (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 616.

Via NY Post ()…

Even amid national crisis and deep polarization, there remains one bipartisan establishment pledge: that the US military presence abroad must continue — forever.

Witness the reaction to President Trump’s recent decision to redeploy nearly 12,000 troops away from Germany. “A serious error,” warned GOP Rep. Liz Cheney. Sen. Mitt Romney had a hawkish fit. Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen alleged that only the Kremlin would cheer such a move.

She apparently hasn’t examined polls showing a plurality of Germans want the troops gone — and, more tellingly, that the vast majority, nearly 80 percent in some surveys, would prefer Berlin to stay neutral or even side with Russia in a hypothetical US-Russian conflict.

“She apparently hasn’t examined polls showing a plurality of Germans want the troops gone — and, more tellingly, that the vast majority, nearly 80 percent in some surveys, would prefer Berlin to stay neutral or even side with Russia in a hypothetical US-Russian conflict”.

Why would she care what they want? They’re only Germans. American politicians don’t even care what US voters want.

As for “siding with Russia” – well, that’s what the troops are there to prevent, isn’t it?

They don’t fool me. If Germany ever finds itself in rapprochement with Russia on security issues and that new ‘European security architecture’ that Putin’s been alluding to for over a decade, NATO personnel will have to spend more on psychiatrists than armaments.

The German people have wanted the American troops out of Germany for a very long time. I also do not think that many American people pay much attention to whether the troops leave or stay in Germany or anywhere else in Europe. Trump still has not proved to the American voters that he is a leader and will be strong enough to pull troops out of Syria and Afghanistan. He has become the “master of sanctions” where he should be working with other countries to solve the pandemic and economical issues that are most important to the American Voters. Trump… Read more »

Truth is that most of the world wants the US to get out of their countries and go back home.

Yeah, right, just hold your breath. The two optimistic Alex-es seem to believe the Trump fable too…

They’ll destabilize society. Underemployed high school dropouts and gangbangers with advanced military training and training in destabilizing societies abroad, roaming America’s streets looking for bones to pick. What could go wrong?

As soon as the last American soldier sets foot off German territory, the Russians will invade and skewer babies on pitchforks, like the Ukrainians did to Poles.

Oops, wasn’t supposed to leave that last part in. Never mind, just replace Ukrainians with Russians. That’ll work.

Leader? The guy reminds me of the Wizard of Oz, with no show of humility at the end.

Humility’s for suckers. Speak like a madman and carry a really big stick. That should scare everybody into line.

Well, all I can say is thank God Trump is saving Europe from perpetual servitude to Russia by continuing to pipe all Europe’s Russian gas through Ukraine and not through that new devil pipe Nord Stream 2.

Thank you, oh wise one – for reminding us that Washington’s logic, like our ethics are as always, beyond reproach.

By the end of the year Nord Stream 2 should be online. at the same time the Ukraine/Gazprom contract will have ended. Since 2014 and the US orchestrated and paid for overthrow of Ukraine, the US has effectively had it’s had on the EU gas supply valve. In 2021 with Nord Sream 2 online that ends. There is very little the US can actually do about gas supply to the EU after that. It will revert back to the fact that the EU needs cheap Russian gas and Russia needs Gas money for it’s budget. Both need each other. The… Read more »

What? Nobody told me. So, all that stuff about my stopping Europe from feeding Russia with billions of precious greenbacks for its gas was just Pompey’s way? He made me look like a fool! Oh well, no one’ll notice. Not even CNN brought it up. Phew.

Over 23% of children in Empire USA suffer hunger, 30 million evicted renters will join the homeless by September, 32 million just stopped receiving $600 a week unemployment checks, and yet, Trump spends a trillion each year to enhance the profits of his corporate rich friends in the war materials industry.

No dount you are a manipulating democrat
Simply by not telling that the stop of the so needed $600/wk is an action of the Democatic party
That to compare with Trump action as PRESIDENT is a fallacy

One section of the German population that will be thrilled to see the back of the troops is the people who live near their bases. If what happens in Japan, S. Korea, etc. is anythng to go by, the number of assaults, rapes and instances of general anti-social behaviour will shoot right down. When you put a load of young, barely educated, hormone-crazed men (and sometimes women) in a place where they have immunity from any wrongdoing, you’ve got a recipe for disaster. So as other countries are busting to have more US troops on their soil let them find… Read more »

“Trump pulls thousands of US troops out of Germany”

I’m sure the average German on the street is waiting with great anticipation for Trump to pull thousands more.
