On NATO

Should it not be more of a question of whether NATO even is needed anymore instead of,  how much a NATO country put's into it?

Things change

I've said here a number of times that while the organization has a use as long as russia is what it is, it's questionable whether the US should still be in it.  The combined GDP of the other NATO members is bigger than the US, and they don't have a 21 trillion dollar debt.  The US jumped in and organized that in the wake of WW2 when European countries were devastated, but things are different now.

What do you think NATO is for?
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

There's is bigger.  I think we have to focus on china as an emerging threat, and there's still north korea.  Let the Europeans contain Russia.  They aren't as big a threat as they used to be - someone called them a third world country with nukes.  Nukes are nukes, I understand, but the Europeans have to take on more responsibility (and expense.)

Yes, combined

However, No other single countries GDP is bigger and no other country gives more?
