Top US NATO general Hodges commits a grave error on Brexit

A top US general completely out of touch with reality:

A vote to leave the EU could threaten the Nato alliance at a time of Russian aggression in the east, the head of the US Army in Europe has warned.
Lieutenant-General Frederick “Ben” Hodges raised concerns that the European Union could unravel in the event of a Brexit, weakening efforts to resist Russian expansionism in Europe and the Middle East if Britons vote to leave the EU on June 23.
Speaking to the BBC, Lt-Gen Hodges said the result of the referendum on June 23 is of "strategic interest".

Yes, there is a possibility that the EU would begin to unravel (something we should welcome!), but that would not in any way weaken NATO, unless some NATO members deliberately choose to weaken the alliance! General Hodges has committed a serious error and will most likely be removed as soon as there is a new (Republican) president!
