President Trump has many bad ideas. Reconsidering America’s role in NATO isn’t one of them.
By the 1960s, the balance was restored. Western Europe’s economies were booming; Britain and France had become nuclear powers; German militarism had been tamed, even as a new, large modern army emerged in West Germany. During the Vietnam War, America was so free of worry about the Soviet threat that it essentially milked its conventional forces in Europe to support its war in Indochina. Its European allies contributed nothing to America’s effort in Vietnam. By 1968, with the collapse of Czechoslovakia’s government and army, the Soviet-controlled Warsaw Pact alliance also appeared less capable.
USAs manglende frygt for Sovjetunionen viser meget godt at den russiske trussel idag er "fake news" kun til brug for at manipulere de almindelig borgere. Ruslands hær er ikke inærheden af Sovjetunionens.
