America’s Imperial Overstretch

America’s Imperial Overstretch. Pat Buchanan calls for a reappraisal of all of the war guarantees the US has issued since the beginning of the Cold War, to determine which, if any, still serve U.S. national interests in 2016.

Alliances, after all, are the transmission belts of war. This is not isolationism. It is putting our country first, and staying out of other people’s wars. It used to be called patriotism.

Donald Trump questions NATO’s usefulness in post-Cold War era.

You know, we’re dealing with NATO from the days of the Soviet Union, which no longer exists. We need to either transition into terror or we need something else, because we have to get countries together.

Trump says NATO is obsolete:

NATO doesn’t discuss terrorism. NATO’s not meant for terrorism. NATO doesn’t have the right countries in it for terrorism.
