Trump approves cutting 9,500 troops in Germany: Pentagon

President Trump has approved plans to cut 9,500 US troops from Germany, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. The move will cut the current troop level in Germany from about 34,500 to 25,000. Pentagon didn’t say where exactly the troops will be sent but some unnamed officials of the defense department said that they could be sent to former Eastern Bloc countries, to send a message to Russia.

Forcing the EU 27 to invest in and commit their own conventional forces to operational deployment and peacekeeping duties commensurate with their GDP is well overdue. Well done POTUS. Remove the security net provided by US firepower, money and soldiers and see how fast the EU takes its own security seriously.

Good. Remove all troops from all foreign nations. Let them pay for their own protection.
