The whole purpose of the EU was to mount an economic entity that could rival the US and use what economic power they have against the US. Meanwhile they use our military to help protect them and have never paid their fair share. Treaty or not, maybe its time to let them Do-It-Yourself militarily, since their social and economic goals are at odds with us and let the chips fall where they may. When your “partners” are skimming the till and have unfair trade practices that favor them at our expense[and they do on many many products, been there done that], it might be time level the playing field. They are scared to death that Russia will control the oil and natural gas coming from the East which could affect them economically. Without the US involved they have leverage problems there. Pay up kiddies.
