Let’s see, what’s going on with the United States and the world. America is attacking many countries in the world. No. America is counter attacking many countries in the world. We are talking about trade, or Mexico with the invasion of the illegals, the drain of the American economy to pay a bunch of rich freeloaders or the imperialistic Chinese. After taking care of the Islamic problems, the actual problems are popping up, which exists already for tens of years. This is Trump take to confront and to stop it all. Let’s see if he succeed.

In 2017, the US contributed more funds to NATO then Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Canada combined. That means 51% of NATO’s combined GDP is paid by the US! And then there is the $151 billion trade deficits with the EU. Germany is complaining that they need protection against Russia, but pays Russia billions for gas, and the US is indirectly contributing with that. Is it strange that the US is assessing the costs and impact of a large-scale withdrawal or transfer of American troops stationed in Germany (source)? Is it strange that President Trump publicly is asking to increase the NATO members military spending to 2% of their GDP multiple times? Is it so strange that President Trump is going to demand it? It’s not the question that he has other options, but the question is if the Europeans have other options. They don’t.

The article “Bono warns that existence of UN, EU and NATO are threatened” tells that there is worry that those institutions are threatened to be damaged, under attack, dismantled or radically changed. In this article, Bono, the Irish rock star, is warning the world about the existential threat of the UN, EU and NATO. Even that he didn’t name President Trump by name, it’s obvious that he blames him. The UN and the NATO seem to forget that the USA is the biggest provider of funds for those organizations and they are talking about President Trump, who’ll not hesitate to stop the money streams to those defunct organizations. And the President has warned them already many times, the moment will come that he confronts them directly. They have still two years to fix it, before President Trump will do it for them

The refugee problems from the Middle East and Africa is not only a potential security problem (hidden terrorists, Islamic extremists, etc.), but they get mismanaged in their new host countries as well. The normal political correct approach of the authorities go too far to let those people and the local population suffer because of incompetence of the politicians and their ability to make things happen. Who is crazy enough to accept more then 800,000 additional refugees when they are not able to handle the current number of refugees? It has all the signs of disasters going to happen and I’m not talking about security disasters only, but social and human disasters.
