Nato members increase defence spending by $100 billion after Donald Trump called them 'delinquents'

Nato members increase defence spending by $  100 billion after Donald Trump called them 'delinquents'Nato states will increase their defence spending by 100 billion dollars in response to Donald Trump's demands that European allies shoulder a greater financial burden, the alliance's secretary general has said.   Jens Stoltenberg said on Sunday that the alliance had heard Mr Trump's call for non-US members to shoulder a greater financial burden "loud and clear" and that allies are "stepping up." In conciliatory comments apparently designed to smooth over repeated public criticism of other alliance members by the US leader, Mr Stoltenberg said member states had agreed to add $ 100 billion to defence budgets over the next two years. Mr Trump has repeatedly complained that other members of Nato do not meet their spending commitments, including  a  blistering tirade at the NATO summit in Brussels  in July in which called other member governments "delinquent."  Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, just stated that because of me NATO has been able to raise far more money than ever before from its members after many years of decline. It’s called burden sharing. Also, more united. Dems & Fake News like to portray the opposite!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 27, 2019 He sent shockwaves through NATO last year when he questioned the alliance's value to the US. Last week the New York Times reported that he had multiple discussions with his top security advisers in 2018 about withdrawing. Speaking on Fox News, a channel favoured by the president, Mr Stoltenberg praised Mr Trump's tough line.   "President Trump has been very clear. He is committed to NATO… but at the same time he has clearly stated that NATO allies need to invest more," said the former Norwegian prime minister. "So we see some real money and real results, and we see that a clear message from President Trump is having an impact. NATO allies have heard the president loud and clear. NATO allies are stepping up." “What he’s doing is to help us adapt the alliance, which we need,” he added. "This is a clear message to Russia and I think they see that."  Member nations agreed in 2014 to spend two percent of their gross domestic products on defence by 2024. But only four of the alliance’s 29 countries have already met that target with just 15 expected to reach it by the deadline. Later on Sunday Mr Trump welcomed the praise, taking credit for the pledge of additional funding. He tweeted: "Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, just stated that because of me NATO has been able to raise far more money than ever before from its members after many years of decline. It’s called burden sharing. Also, more united. Dems & Fake News like to portray the opposite!" Mr Trump's public doubts about the utility of the Nato alliance have alarmed European allies concerned about a repeat of Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and invasion of east Ukraine.

Pope Francis calls predator priests 'vicious wolves' and urges them to turn themselves in

Pope Francis calls predator priests 'vicious wolves' and urges them to turn themselves inCatholic priests who sexually abuse children are “vicious wolves” who should turn themselves into the authorities, Pope Francis said on Friday. His remarks came at the end of a year in which he was accused of mishandling an abuse scandal in Chile and in which the Vatican’s third most senior figure, economy minister Cardinal George Pell of Australia, was put on trial in Melbourne for sexually abusing boys. Any priest who abused a child was “a vicious wolf ready to devour innocent souls”, the Pope said in his annual address to the Curia, the Vatican’s governing body. Survivors of clerical abuse have long accused the Pope of coming out with strong rhetoric to condemn the rape of children but of failing to take concrete steps to address the scandal. In his address, the Pope acknowledged that the Catholic Church had hugely underestimated the phenomenon and failed to punish predatory priests and the bishops who cover up for them, often by moving them from parish to parish rather than reporting them to the police. Pope Francis made the remarks in an address to the Curia at the Vatican  Credit: Filippo Monteforte/AP "It is undeniable that some in the past, out of irresponsibility, disbelief, lack of training, inexperience, or spiritual and human short-sightedness, treated many cases without the seriousness and promptness that was due," he said. All that would change, he pledged, speaking two months before a landmark Vatican summit which will be convened in February to address the issue. He promised to make "past mistakes opportunities for eliminating this scourge". "To those who abuse minors I would say this: convert and hand yourself over to human justice, and prepare for divine justice," the leader of the world’s 1.3 billion Roman Catholics said. "Let it be clear that, faced with these abominations, the Church will spare no effort to do all that is necessary to bring to justice whoever has committed such crimes. “The Church will never seek to hush up or not take seriously any case," he said. “This must never happen again.” Victims’ groups are deeply sceptical that the conference in February, which will see bishops from around the world gather in Rome, will produce tangible results. But the Pope appears to recognise the enormous damage that has been done to the Catholic Church’s moral authority by years of abuse revelations from around the world, from Ireland to the US, Australia, Germany and Latin America. Just this week, the attorney general of the state of Illinois accused Catholic dioceses of failing to release the names of at least 500 clergy accused of sexually abusing children. And the Pope accepted the resignation of an auxiliary bishop in Los Angeles, Monsignor Alexander Salazar, following an allegation of sexual misconduct with a child in the 1990s.

"I would like to give heartfelt thanks to those media professionals who were honest and objective and sought to unmask these predators and to make their victims’ voices heard,” he told the Curia. He also launched an attack on his enemies within the Church who have attacked his papacy, either openly or anonymously through leaks. He likened them to Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus for “thirty pieces of silver”. The Pope has come under sustained attack from conservatives within the Church who are bitterly opposed to the openness he has shown to formerly shunned groups, including homosexuals and remarried divorcees wanting to take communion. He said there are, within the Church hierarchy, “those who hide behind good intentions in order to stab their brothers and sisters in the back and to sow weeds, division and bewilderment.”
