Wrong - they really meant that they would make an effort 'to aim towards' it. They just never committed on reaching it. It is watered down document and probably the best the USA could get passed through in NATO.Of course not. So NATO nations said they would but they really didn't mean it. Just an empty promise. Or in your words, "we'll try!"
Again you are deliberately lying. I never said NATO would dictate that to the USA. Try sticking to what i actually stated instead of fabricating this kind of nonsense. The USA decides its own spending just like all the other NATO members states do. What the other member states pay or do not pay does not affect that amount one way or the other since there is no magical pool of NATO funding. What i stated is that regardless how the spending of the other NATO member states changes it has no effect on the USA's own military spending. Like i said, it ain't zero sum game contrary to what Trump and some others seem to imagine.NATO's pages state the U.S. will continue to spend the same amount regardless of whether or not the other NATO nations pull their weight? Really? You have to copy and paste that one for me. I didn't know NATO decides the military spending for the U.S. Please copy and paste this from the article you provided. I will be waiting.
