(with a few exceptions like the UK, Israel, Australia, Canada, etc) and starts whining about The Donald’s win.
EXCERPT: “In Germany, where American troops have been stationed for more than seven decades, the prospect of a pullback seemed bewildering. “It would be the end of an era,” Henrik Müller, a journalism professor at the Technical University of Dortmund, wrote in Der Spiegel. “The postwar era in which Americans’ atomic weapons and its military presence in Europe shielded first the west and later the central European states would be over. Europe would have to take care of its own security.” Norbert Röttgen, chairman of the German parliamentary committee for foreign policy and a member of the ruling party, said Mr. Trump was “completely inadequate” to his office. “That Trump’s election could lead to the worst estrangement between America and Europe since the Vietnam War would be the least of the damage,” he said.”
Europe did nothing but undermine us in Vietnam and having to provide their own security? Why, that might mean diverting money from their massive social welfare programs to a military! Oh the humanity!
Hmmm. Quite the change from the below… (Germany)
And in Japan…
EXCERPT: “Counterintuitive as it might seem, China was concerned about Mr. Trump’s promise to pull American troops back from Asia.
“If he indeed withdraws the troops from Japan, the Japanese may develop their own nuclear weapons,” said Shen Dingli, professor of international relations at Fudan University in Shanghai. “South Korea may also go nuclear if Trump cancels the missile deployment and leaves the country alone facing the North’s threats. How is that good for China?”
EXCERPT: “I see a clear and present danger,” said Rossana Fuentes-Berain, director of the Mexico Media Lab, a think tank, and a founder of the Latin American edition of Foreign Affairs. “Every moment will be a challenge. Every move or declaration will be something that will not make us comfortable in the neighborhood — and that is to everyone’s detriment.”
With about $531 billion in trade in goods last year, Mexico is America’s third-largest partner after Canada and China.”
What the article fails to mention is that since 1994 the US has run a trade deficit of BILLIONS a year with Mexico since then. In other words, WE get the shaft, Mexico gets the $$ and the jobs. Multiply THAT by dozens of trade deals globally and WE get screwed royally.
So Yankee DOES go home and tells the world to go f*ck itself. No more worrying about poor little Germany, or South Korea, or any number of countries who can take care of themselves and if they can’t, too damn bad. It has been about 50 YEARS past the time that America came first and now that we’re pulling the American titty out of their yaps, the whining commences. Time to man up and protect your own damn countries. America FIRST, Always!
Perhaps the funniest quote was: ““If Trump wins, God forbid,” Macharia Gaitho, one of Kenya’s most popular columnists, wrote on Tuesday before the votes came in, “then we will have to reassess our relations with the United States.”
Does that mean that a village in Kenya won’t take back their idiot on 20 January 2017?
