In a speach to European leaders, Mike Pompeo called out Europe’s abdication in the face of rising threats such as Iran, China and Russia. The Free Beacon reports:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brought the Trump administration’s voice to a gathering of European leaders, offering a stinging criticism of the European order’s capitulation to rogue nations such as Iran, China, and Russia.
Pompeo, addressing a gathering of NATO leaders on Tuesday, offered a sobering rebuke of the international treaty group, telling the crowd the Trump administration will not stand down in the face of rising threats from a host of rogue regimes.
Criticizing the rise of anti-Israel bias and complacency in the face of growing threats from countries such as Iran, Pompeo championed President Donald Trump’s foreign policy vision.
“This U.S. leadership allowed us to enjoy the greatest human flourishing in modern history. We won the Cold War. We won the peace. We reunited Germany,” Pompeo said. “This is the type of leadership that President Trump is boldly reasserting.”
Will Europe finally reclaim its responsibility in this ever more dangerous world?
For decades, the USA has voluntarily supported various European governments with both funding and military. The European leaders hate us because such support demonstrates the depth of their incompetence, but they still jam up to the trough and slurp up the free stuff. Time to back off and let them learn how to govern themselves thru hard times. Kick the United Nations back to Europe and cut their funding support to a reasonable member portion.
Europe is already over run by stupidity led by liberals and radical Islamists.
Only a matter of time before all of Europe, with UN support, will be physically attacking the US.
WWIII is coming within ten years.
And the people are still never consulted about anything their “leaders” are doing to their countries; Just like the position we, in this country have been under many administrations, and especially the immediately previous one. Thank God we have President Trump
The EU was formed without much say from the people it has affected!
Better get ready for a “ram”. European Nations ‘gave up’ their independence when they entered an EU without ELECTED representatives of the PEOPLE. You can see this shortcoming every day. The POWER is in the ‘state’, NOT THE PEOPLE!! While ‘the people’ may muck up the affairs of “state”, they still retain their FREEDOM!!
