Lack of U.S. leadership causing ’brain death’ of NATO, Macron says

French President Macron described NATO as brain dead, stressing what he sees as waning commitment to the alliance by its main guarantor, the US. Interviewed by the Economist, Macron cited the US failure to consult NATO before pulling forces out of northern Syria.

What a joke, France hasn't contributed , it's agreed GDP, on defense for NATO in decades. Macron is a puppet, this is all about the "EU" army.

NATO doesn't have a reason to exist anymore, since the Soviet Union collapsed. The EU wants their own military, so why do they need NATO?

Everyone seems to be missing the obvious irony here: France is complaining because the U.S. "retreated" troops from a conflict. If irony were strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.
