NATO の抱える「ゴルディアスの結び目」と Trump の一刀両断

はじめに


・「ゴルディアスの結び目」とは…
  https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%B4%E3%83%AB%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%A2%E3%82%B9%E3%81%AE%E7%B5%90%E3%81%B3%E7%9B%AE

・以下、若干 単純化しすぎだが、それゆえコミカルで面白い内容。

一部引用



President Trump can avoid new entanglements but he has inherited so many and they are, all of them, growing denser and thicker by the minute. Consider the famous story of the Gordian Knot: rather than trying to untie the fabulously complicated knot, Alexander drew his sword and cut it.

How can Trump cut The Gordian Knot of American imperial entanglements? By getting others to untie it.

He stomps out of NATO leaving them quaking: if you say Russia is the enemy, why do you act as if it isn't; and if you act as if it isn't, why do you say it is? And firing, over his shoulder, the threat: 2% by next January.

I believe it is a threat and a very neat one too:

If you don't get up to 2% (or is it 4%?) and quickly too; I warned you. Goodbye.

If you do get your spending up, then you don't need us. Goodbye.

Another strand of the knot gone.
