Mattis Tells 'Em

Former general and current Secretary of Defense James "Mad Dog" Mattis, speaking to assembled defense chiefs at NATO, as quoted by the Daily Mail (U.K.):
No longer can the American taxpayer carry a disproportionate share of the defense of Western values. Americans cannot care more for your children's future security than you do.
Lots of NATO members, including wealthy Germany, do not spend on defense the 2% of GDP they're obligated to spend by the NATO treaty to which all are signatories. Hat tip to for the link.
