Why should the Secretary of State go to a NATO meeting? Don’t we have a designated NATO military commander?

"I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been." - Wayne Gretzky

Meeting the Chinese and Russian leaders has the potential to defuse tensions in Europe and Asia and perhaps avoid wars rather then gin them up ...

So, send Mattis to NATO.

He is the DefSec and NATO is a defense organization, right?

French presidential election begins April 23. German election is mid-September. Only thing that was going to happen at NATO was posturing by incumbent administrations that have screwed their own people.

Excellent.
Lately we have more in common with Russia than with NATO/EU.
Politically.

The headline is designed to gin up hysteria among #TheResistance. China’s president is coming to the U.S. at the same time.

"Next thing you know the Russians will roll across Poland and into Germany!"

And Polish police forces should meet them at the eastern border and escort them to the western border via the most expeditious route ...
