Pat Buchanan, writing at The American Conservative, asks “why NATO and why are U.S. troops in Europe?”
Now that the British have voted to secede from the European Union and America has chosen a president who has never before held public office, the French appear to be following suit.
While Fillon sees Margaret Thatcher as a role model in fiscal policy, he is a socially conservative Catholic who supports family values, wants to confront Islamist extremism, control immigration, restore France’s historic identity and end sanctions on Russia.
“Russia poses no threat to the West,” says Fillon. But if not, the question arises, why NATO? Why are U.S. troops in Europe?
