#3 Uh, yeah, o.k., Macron. I'm all for it, but I'll believe it when I see it. You fools are complaining about paying 2-3% of GNP to be part of the NATO gig, and you think sans the US it'll be any cheaper? GTFOH!

#4 doesn't require anything to surrender or to maintain a force just sufficient enough to keep your own population down.

#6 The French have been saying that for the past 60+ years. Good luck with that. I mean it. Americans can use a vacation, say, for the remainder of this century.

#7 Remember, the French reaction to the Soviet bloc was to leave NATO and elect a socialist government. They rejoined NATO after the Soviets collapsed. Their "engagement" with the Russians will be to give them as much as they want, so long as it doesn't interfere with short work weeks, summer vacations, and French delusions of superiority.
