    Indeed, once the protection racket ends then Europe will be able to start making its own political decisions, and the economics will inevitably drive Europe towards the east. Current situation is being artificially maintained by US forcing political and economic decisions onto Europe that are actively harmful.

      Yeah exactly. The problem Europe has is reliance on the US for several things, security being one of them. Convincing the left that more military in Europe is a good thing will be a hard sell but in order to pull Europe out of the US orbit (and by extension nato) it’s a necessary step.

      The question of “do we need nato?” will become a thing when Europe approaches the power it needs to not require the US for security.
