It is not a secret, that the U.S. has developed a complex system of defending its interests in Europe. This system is composed of mechanisms which allow to support its influence by different means, including economic and military tools.

The US doesn't rely on NATO for anything. Without the US NATO is utterly powerless to do anything that would even remotely like military action.

While Trump was applying pressure on the EU nations to live up to their promises of spending 2% of GDP on their various military, there was a chance that the EU nations would be able to stand on their own feet militarily.

But now we are back to the 'good old days' where the EU nations will make promises without ever intending to meet them and the US will pretend to believe them.

True, mhaze. Trump was continually telling the European branch of NATO to do more for themselves and stop bleeding the US. Europe is a bit like New Zealand with ANZUS.

You don't mess with the NATO generals.
They've got blackberries with encryption that US Presidents don't have oversight of.
