Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Former Obama officials want European nations to expel US diplomats in retaliation for Trump backing out of the Iran nuclear bribe. I hope they do.
I hope Trump responds by announcing that the wise policies put in place by President Truman to rebuild Europe after WW II have succeeded beyond all expectations. European nations have demonstrated they are fully capable of managing their own affairs wherefore we intend to serve notice that we’re withdrawing from NATO. American military commanders will be preparing a timetable for orderly withdrawal of troops and equipment with plans for redeployment along our southern border. We congratulate our European friends and former allies and wish them a bright and prosperous future.
There’s a part of me that hopes Trump drops that on the likes of Merkel.
Of course, it’s the likes of Estonia and Poland that’d end up suffering when the pusillanimous central European powers cave in in the face of Russia bullying.
I said when.
