Germany challenged for free riding on US defense spending

Washington Post:
U.S. assessing cost of keeping troops in Germany as Trump battles with Europe

European officials are scrambling to determine whether the president intends to reposition U.S. forces or is just making threats ahead of a NATO summit.
Eastern European countries seem eager to have US troops deployed in their area.  Germany has not been pulling it fair share of its own defense.  It continues to lag on defense spending requirements of NATO and has a serious readiness problem.  If war broke out, it only has four fighter jets it could put into action.   Merkel does not seem to care about a strong defense and her open borders policy has created a problem for Germans.
