Authorities say new technology was used to skim credit card information from two pumps at a gas station in Wilmington.
me: NATO is only as effective as its contracts, contracts are only effective if all parties adhere to their agreements . Sign up for any membership and don't pay your dues, you will eventually be rejected from the benefits you receive. Trump is threatening this at the perfect time, it is a time where if it is laid out correctly all members will realize how important it is for all to fulfill their agreed obligations. The US should not have to bankroll the worlds defense without some mutual obligations being adhered to. That said this is a simple negotiation tactic (that others should have learned long ago). The simple threat of this will cause (and has) caused these nations to begin to look at their defense expenditures. In the end this will simply cause all parties to reevaluate the importance of keeping promises. This is a win win for the US, Others will contribute their 2%, all will assess the importance of NATO, and the US will still continue to provide its protection but with increase support.
