Why NATO? Economically the US and the EU are deadly enemies!

The latter requires that the Europeans start protecting themselves - and by “protecting themselves” I only mean “defending themselves” (thus not attacking others - if possible).

I see no will to self protecting in Europe. I merely see egocentric greed, overprotected young (I mean those few who are NOT aborted) Europeans, … and so on … , thus: decadence.

Okay, I also see that there is still a huge potential, but is is not activated.
