The ‘Trumpists,’ led by US Vice President Mike Pence, US Secretary of
Defense James Mattis, Republican Senator John McCain, Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman
and Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir turned the two-day Munich
Security Conference, which ended on Sunday, into a security and
propaganda campaign to justify their warmongering goals.
This was aimed at bringing NATO on board and turning the alliance into Trump’s military equipment against Iran and Russia.

military equipment of the US president.
Likewise, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen called for promoting peace to settle global conflicts.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg demanded that Europe adopt a
different approach from that of the US in dealing with global conflicts.

This is because it will have to react more strongly to the warmongering
policies of the ‘Trumpists’ and their allies.
It remains to be
seen whether Europe will ultimately be able to prevent NATO from being
turned into Trump’s military playing field.
