06-04-2016: 7:29 p.m. | RACINE, Wis. — Donald J. Trump went further than ever before in his criticism of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, telling a crowd here that he would be fine if NATO broke up.

Mr. Trump had previously questioned the need for the organization, and on Saturday he reiterated his criticism that other NATO countries were “not paying their fair share” in comparison with the United States.

“That means we are protecting them, giving them military protection and other things, and they’re ripping off the United States. And you know what we do? Nothing,” Mr. Trump said at a subdued rally here on the outskirts of Milwaukee. “Either they have to pay up for past deficiencies or they have to get out.”

“And if it breaks up NATO, it breaks up NATO,” he concluded.

The role of the United States in NATO has become a point of contention here between Mr. Trump and his chief rival, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, as the candidates battle to win the state’s 42 delegates in Tuesday’s primary. Mr. Cruz has criticized Mr. Trump’s comments on NATO, saying that the United States needed to support the organization’s fight against terrorism and to counterbalance Russia’s influence.

On Saturday, as he did in an interview with The New York Times last week, Mr. Trump painted the organization as old and out of date.

“It was really designed for the Soviet Union, which doesn’t exist anymore,” Mr. Trump said. “It wasn’t designed for terrorism.”

Later, at an event in Wausau, Wis., Mr. Trump seemed to acknowledge the controversy his initial remarks about NATO had prompted.

“I said here’s the problem with NATO: it’s obsolete,” Mr. Trump said, recounting his comments. “Big statement to make when you don’t know that much about it, but I learn quickly.”

In the Times interview, Mr. Trump also said he was open to allowing Japan and South Korea to build their own nuclear arsenals rather than relying on the United States for protection. The United States has been wary of nuclear proliferation in the Asia Pacific region, and President Obama on Friday rebuked Mr. Trump for his comments, saying he worried the real estate billionaire “doesn’t know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the Korean Peninsula or the world generally.”

Mr. Trump responded Saturday, saying at his first event, “I didn’t say anything about letting Japan go nuclear.” But, he continued, “We have to let them take care of themselves and if that means they have to some day get nuclear weapons — in all fairness folks, I don’t really like this — eventually they’re going to want to get them anyway.”

At his second event, he returned to the question of a nuclear Japan, arguing both sides of the issue in almost the same sentence.

“I would rather have them not arm, but I’m not going to continue to lose this tremendous amount of money,” Mr. Trump said. “And frankly, the case could be made, that let them protect themselves against North Korea. They’d probably wipe them out pretty quick.”

A fight between Japan and North Korea, he added, would be “a terrible thing,” but he framed the scenario in financial terms.

“Good luck, folks, enjoy yourself,” he said. “If they fight, that would be terrible, right? But if they do, they do. We can’t be the policemen to the world and have $19 trillion in debt, going up to $21 trillion and we’re sitting on a bubble that’s going to explode and we’re going to all end up you know where.”

This article is interesting as if Donald Trump becomes the next President of America and fololows through on his thoughts on NATO this would be exactly what Bible students expect to see.  Bible Prophecy is very clear on the fact that the European Union will be in a close relationship with Russia at the time of the end with Russia becoming a “guard” unto the European Nations Ezekiel 38:7.  So it will be interesting to see what happens to NATO after BREXIT and the USA Presidential Election.  Will it stay as the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or will it morph into a European Army Command Center.  Both France and Germany want the EU to have it’s own Army, Britain is against this and up until now has stopped any such development.  But with Britain gone and most of the EU countries in NATO, Britain and America might found they lose contral and or pull out as a result.  However this happens it will be Germany and France to watch to see how developments move following BREXIT.

Why do we say this, well in Ezekiel 38:1-7 Germany is referred to by her ancient name of “Magog” being closely allied with Russia to the point that “Gog” ie. a chief one, is referred to in Bible Prophecy as being “Gog of the land of Magog” See Ezekiel 38:1-7.  Gog is also referred to in Bible Prophecy as the “King of the North” and undoubtly is the leader of Russia. The Bible also speaks of that the “King of the South” (Britain, America and the Commonwealth Countries) in the later days will “push” at the “King of the North” (Russia) and it is partly this antagonism that will force Russia and the EU to invade the Middle East.  Of course this will become more pronounced when Britain withdraws from the EU and Joins America and her Commonwealth Countries in standing up to Russian aggression.

This will be a development to watch following BREXIT as we see the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible falling into place before our very eyes.
