NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg now comes with full support for Trump's requirements for NATO, as expected.
Stoltenberg says he fully agree with the United States that European countries must contribute to the alliance more.
- European allies must spend more money and invest more in defense. We see some progress, but it is a long way to go still, Stoltenberg said to Nettavisen on Tuesday.
- I spoke with President Trump a few days after he won the election in November and he conveyed a strong message to me that he is personally very supportive of NATO and the transatlantic cooperation, the former Norwegian Prime Minister said.
On Monday Stoltenberg also spoke with the new US defense secretary James Mattis, who also promised full support for NATO.
In 2013, in her book "Basketak," former Labor Minister Grete Knudsen described Stoltenberg as a man who avoids conflicts and is elusive.
- He is a nice and talented person. But when ministers want a conversation about difficult cases, it is not easy to connect. He could wander with his eyes. I often had the feeling that I bothered him, wrote Knudsen, who was elected to Parliament from 1981 to 2001 and Minister for three Labor governments.
So to many Norwegians it came as no surprise when Obama and Merkel promoted Stoltenberg to head the alliance. It was not because they needed a strong leader, it was because they needed a happy little poodle they could control and teach new tricks.
An obedient little poodle that would never bark at them, but instead, willingly and with the tongue hanging out, join in on the craziness against Russia - to avoid conflicts with his owners.
And then Hillary was suppose to inherit the poodle when Obama left goddammit, not Trump, who now becomes the new owner of a well dressed, well trained and obedient Norwegian bastard. Woof.
