Britain

There's life in Old Blighty yet

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The prime minister pushes the argument that a clean break with the Europeans will bring down harm, confusion, ruin, disaster and national heartbreak. Big business, which always makes arrangements with bureaucracies and once in place wants them left undisturbed. Airbus and BMW warn they might not keep factories in Britain; Land Rover threatens, more or less, to suspend $100 billion in planned investments. But this is much like the mayor who threatens to close the orphanage if the City Council cuts anything out of his budget. Old Blighty will survive European threats and mischief. It always has.

President Trump Should Give NATO to the Europeans

NATO should be turned over to the Europeans, allowing them to handle their defense as they desire. This would not mean cutting relations. But it does mean Washington should stop subsidizing its wealthier cousins when the latter don’t feel like paying for their own defense.

Why are America’s Allies so Persistently Pathetic?

Washington’s allies generally are a pathetic lot. Benefiting from sizeable and capable populations and enjoying large and advanced economies, they nevertheless can’t be bothered to invest heavily in their own defense, so the bulk of Washington’s over-size military outlays are to project power for the benefit of its ne’er-do-well allies.
