(Lucas: Real faces are shown if you’re not already knowing who Cameron and his NATO /military industrial complex cronies are. If the financial shit is not to be solved lets have war… and it does not matter if we instigated or made the war happen…. as it is ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh. all secret….. but so visible.)
Barack Obama and David Cameron will urge NATO members to increase military spending at the alliance’s summit in Wales, amid criticism that some countries are getting a “free ride”, growing geopolitical tensions and Europe-wide austerity.
The NATO summit, which kicks off later this week, will see Obama and Cameron urge European state leaders to protect their continent from amplifying threats by honoring commitments to allocate a minimum of 2 percent of GDP on defense spending. NATO members attending the two-day summit in Newport will also debate how best to deal with the ongoing crises in Iraq and Ukraine.
While the White House has insisted increased military spending is a “top priority”, many diplomats believe the US administration’s plea will be rejected by EU states, which are still suffering from the ravages of a deep recession. At present, only two NATO members have reached the 2 percent target other than the US and Britain.
