think you mixed up things:

    (another game-changer "This would be a major capability upgrade over the existing LCS. Even the up-gunned LCS concept, also known as the Small Surface Combatant (SSC), lacked any real air defense capability, making it effectively

    Could Trump pull US out of Nato and what would happen if he did?
The President has never had any intention of pulling out of NATO, honestly, this is just posturing for the camera, and designed to get the Democrat congress some press as being pro-Nato, pro European Union... their socialist colleagues across the pond some backbone to continue bad mouthing the President, and get them some "Sophisticated" support when they run for President, Vice President, Dog Catcher, Street Sweeper???

"Smoke and Mirrors" my friend, but lots of folks have no CLUE how this works, and they are taken in by this political gambit for influence...

I think half the house Democrat congress will likely be running for President, against the Trumpster???

but this will work for them, because nobody else know's what the hell is going on??? especially their "needy constituents" that don't work, and have no intention of working... they keep their base by promising more social programs, ADC, Medicade, public housing, free child care, college for all, you name it, they have been promised they will receive it from their friendly local liberal politician....

in the meantime, the Defense Deptmartment takes another hit, like Obama's 500 Billion dollar defense cut, closely followed by another 500 Billion dollar cut when sequestration rolled in??

Honestly, the President is NOT pulling the US out of NATO, you know that, and I know that, they are just "prancing around" trying to "display their "plumage"! like I said, this kind of krap works well for them, people who have a clue wish to defend their country, people who don't care, want their govt to hand them money??? they don't care where it comes from, or who it hurts?

but our enemies love it! and the libs love that, they like Hillary and Obama, think our enemies really just want little plastic "reset buttons"....... and we will all just magically get along?? sad but true my friend.....

Hard to say what President Trump was up to on his rhetoric on NATO. But best case is that he was trying to turn up the heat on European leaders to put there money where there mouth is on defense spending.
The US bankrolls NATO. Yet NATO is primarily not for US defense but European.

It's really not hard to figure the President's point? when that is exactly his point, the United States will still be doing the "heavy lifting", we'd just like the financial support that would make that US support, (where the US, places itself between Europe and the Russian aggressors), at least appear to be "appreciated"?

and who here really believes Putin will not be coming for the rest of those former republics "cherry's"?? now that would be foolish indeed, and to Putin, its a matter of personal "pride"! don't doubt me on this

the President could have had a very good relationship with President Putin, and President Xi, but the Democrat press and body Politic will not allow the President to negotiate his way to a lasting peace, they hate him so much for taking away Obama's legacy as the "Golden Child" who would bring world peace by virtue of his "magnetic personality"... in truth, Obama is nearly as offensive to most folks as Hillary...

but they don't want a "Trump Peace", like Pax Romana, sadly they don't mind hurting the country in the process, so almost everything the President has accomplished has been an uphill battle...

So the Trumpster is getting used to "going it alone", if you wait on the wimpy, squishy, politicians, it will never happen.... they love stasis, especially if they can skim 35% off the top....
