Germany is warning the U.S. on air defense:

A top German defense official has told the Pentagon that eliminating or trimming Washington’s financial contribution to a missile defense program it is developing with Berlin and Rome "is not an option."

The Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) is slated to become "the basis for the German air-defense architecture" and that nation’s portion of an envisioned NATO missile defense system, Detlef Selhausen, the German Federal Ministry of Defense’s director of armaments, wrote to Pentagon acquisition chief Ashton Carter.

How about this as an American counter-offer?  First, Germany pays its agreed-to contribution to NATO.  After that, we’ll talk.
