The Germans won’t pay their fair share in NATO for European defense. They refuse to pay the 2% of their GDP on their military as required by the NATO charter. Let them stand against the Russians themselves? Seems fair to begin a “decoupling”.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville made it official Tuesday: A headquarters group will be going to Poland as the first move in the major realignment of forces in Europe brought on by President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw about 11,900 troops from Germany.
In a ceremony in the Polish city of Krakow, McConville promoted John Kolasheski, the Army’s V Corps commander, to the rank of lieutenant general and officially unfurled the headquarters’ flag for the first time on Polish soil.
