It is pretty easy for a country to play kumbaya socialism when the US spends close to $1 trillion per year so these countries do not end up speaking Russian, Chinese, etc.
Lol, you mean china will invade Europe
Don't they have to go through Russia to do that?
But seriously, from the european perspective the US spending doesn't mean squat. The US is actively working against european security by inciting wars in the middle east. The migrant crisis in Europe is a direct consequence of the US wars. The biggest numbers of migrants are from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Precisely the countries the US has occupied.
As for Russia, the EU is their biggest market, why would they destroy that? By installing US troops and missiles in Europe the US is actually trying to point the russian missiles in Europe's direction instead of having them all at the US. Again actively endangering european security. The europeans wish the US would start spending less on war, trust me.
