    A day after new US defense minister James Mattis requested allied countries to increase defense spending to 2% of GDP, Croatian Minister of Defense Damir Krstičević stated that a decision on Croatian Air Force can help Croatia meet the target, increasing defense expenditure from current 1,23% of GDP. At this moment, only seven NATO members has no air force. Reaching the 2% target would mean increasing the defense budget by 400 million USD (2,8 billion HRK). Currently, United States are responsible for 70% of NATOs military capabilities. Mattis has also stated that “Americans cannot care more for the future of your children than you can”.

    Freedom is not free but unfortunately Croatian politicians do not want free Croatia. For this reason, the Communist Party of Croatia (divided into so-called HDZ and SDP) has systematically gutted Croatian military.
