Tweet of the Day: NATO Warned By US Defense Secretary to Increase Spending

It is telling that Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave no warnings to South Korea or Japan during his recent visit to the area, but did gave a warning to NATO to increase spending:



I am a US military veteran that has served all over the world to include in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Korea. I have been blogging about Korea, Northeast Asia, and the US military for over 10 years.


  1. The difference between NATO and the Korean and Japanese agreements is the latter countries are meeting their current commitments. The complaint against NATO is that many of their members are not meeting their commitments to invest at least 2% of their GDP in their military.

  2. Greece’s GDP is so low that it is the top Europe defense spender in terms of GDP.
