WTF Headline Of The Day: NATO General Says Trump Has Been "Very Consistent" On NATO Support

Tyler Durden's picture

Sometimes you have to wonder just what the hell planet the world's elites live on. Despite the black versus white nature of President Trump's "obsolete" statements on NATO, the alliance's Secretary-General stated today that the U.S. leader has always been "very consistent" in his support.

As The Hill reports, Trump repeatedly ripped NATO during his presidential campaign, complaining that it was too dependent on the United States and that too many members were not meeting their commitments on defense funding.

And he could not have been more clear about NATO's obsolescence here...

Which is why yesterday's comments made such headlines...

“I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete,” he said.

And why we are simply stunned that NATO's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg is downplaying President Trump's shift on the military alliance’s relevancy, arguing the U.S. leader has always been “very consistent” in his support.

Stoltenberg deflected questions about Trump’s statement a day earlier that NATO was “no longer obsolete” during an interview Thursday on CNN. “For me, the important thing is that [Trump] has been very consistent when it comes to NATO in all my interactions and conversations with him,” Stoltenberg said.

WTF!

Consistent with the deep state ... not the public.

Hillary's private motives were also very consistent.

Doltenberg probably also believes that humor is an insidious Kremlin plot. I wonder how much money was wasted on this "study":

At least we know know that Trump respects and probably fears Putin.

Good, let's keep it that way.

This is JUST PR from NATO.

You wouldn't expect him to come on TV and say..

Someone calculate how many cemetaries there are in Europe holding the remains of US soldiers (WWI and II).

Now, how many cemetaries are there in the US holding the remains of European soldiers. (Revolutionary War and War of 1812 don't count)

Last for extra credit (how many soldiers in those European cemetaries?)

As I said on another thread.

The MAD doctrine, although totally irrational in itself, requires rationality or the peception, of it to

MAD doctrine is now dead, hedge accordlingly.

Stoltenberger translation:

TRUMP IS "A NUT CASE" WHO ONLY CARES ABOUT HIMSELF AND HIS HOTELS AND THE PEOPLE FROM GOLDMAN SACHS THAT WILL KEEP HIM FROM HIS 6TH CHAPTER 11... THAT AND THE INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE THAT'S BEEN USED AGAINST HIM EVER SINCE HE CAMPAIGNED OF HIM RAPING A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL AT A JEFFREY EPSTEIN PARTY, WHICH MAKES HIM QUITE "MALLEABLE" (SO SAYS GEORGE SOROS WHO HAS THE PICTURES)!....

WE NEED THE AMERICAN MILITARY TO START A MAJOR CONFLICT IN EASTERN EUROPE...

THE BANKS ARE "UNDER WATER" AND WE CAN'T KEEP INFLATION UNDER CONTROL MUCH LONGER...

IMMIGRANTS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES WE'VE DESTROYED ARE TOO NUMEROUS AND THE PEOPLE IN WESTERN EUROPE ARE READY TO SLICE OUR THROATS...

IN SHORT "WE NEED A VERY BIG WAR AS A DIVERSION" TO THE MESS WE CREATED FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD... OR AT THE VERY LEAST TO GIVE US ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO OUR BUNKERS 2 MILES BELOW SEA LEVEL!

Umm.  There is this thing called 'The Internet'.  With it shit gets recorded and remembered.  You don't control the narrative anymore dipshit.

Trucker Glock's picture

Sounds consistent to me.  He didn't say NATO was obsolete and should be disolved.  He said it must be changed.  Based on his statement, it sounded like he didn't think they were playing war correctly. Apparently, he thinks he's changed it.

He was always a war monger.  Dude is a lunatic.  His arrogance is deadly.

Just wait till Trump's militaristic attitudes are focused inward via the police state.  Sessions has already said Feds will assist non-Federal law enforcement fight crime.

I'd say Trump has been just as consistent about NATO as he's always been about everything else.

The Alliance Against Satan's Greater Iran Project

World Wars I & II were shaped by Zionism. Jews worked for banksters, supposedly to create Greater Israel.

However, Satan's plot for World War III involved both Jews and Shiites. Those Jews who really wanted to create Greater Israel were not told that Satan's ultimate goal was to create Greater Iran, not Greater Israel. Greater Iran's job is to slaughter Arabs and sabotage the return of Jesus Christ.

Arabs accept Jesus Christ as the only True Messiah and await his return. Shiites believe in a different messiah who speaks Hebrew and kills all Arabs before ruling the whole world.

Zionists did 9/11 for the sake of Greater Israel (Yenon plan). They thought that Arab countries would be balkanized and given to Israel. Instead, Rothschild canceled Yenon and turned his attention to the Greater Iran project.

Within few years of Iraq's invasion with Iran's help, the Arab Spring put Iranians (or crypto-Iranians) in power in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen. Obama almost had Iranians take Bahrain, and if Hillary had won, all the Arab states and much of North Africa would be under Iranian rule in collaboration with the Muslim Brotherhood.

When Obama put the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of Egypt, Iran helped massively. Iran helped the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, too. Leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood are on record despising Arabs and praising Iran. Iran is on record that the best Shiites are the Muslim Brotherhood. In people's experience with the MB, MB acts like Shiites indeed. MB are not Sunnis.

The Almighty created the Arab-American alliance under Trump in order to destroy the Greater Iran project. This explains Trump's priorities. He wants to save America and the world from the Greater Iran project. MB and Hezbollah are here, all over America, supported by liberals, neocons, and many Jews. They can drown America in real terrorism, not staged terrorism, unless their masterminds in Iran are knocked out.

Jared Kushner may have Zionist background, but his loyalty is to Trump who is running the project. Zionism is no longer being pursued with the goal of creating Greater Israel. Instead, Israel hopes to be safe in its current borders from Greater Iran.  Still, Israeli cooperation is seen with limitation by Trump. His main allies are Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and other Arabs.

Update: Tillerson explained this to Putin. All indications are that Putin will cooperate. Trump explained this to NATO's Stoltenberg and turned him around. NATO will no longer tolerate Iran and its Muslim Brotherhood.
