They aren't defending us from anything. It's just marking territory, like a dog pissing on a lampost. "You may think you're a sovereign nation, but actually...you're not. You exist to serve us, and if you don't, well this base could get bigger. A lot bigger. And there's nothing you can do about it {smirk} Have a nice day, y'all.

After all, what was NATO for ? To keep America in, the Russians out and Germany down.

The US has military bases so it can project force to spread Democracy© and Freedom©.  When you Europeans finally get Democracy© and Freedom© the job Will Be Done™ and all the forces will return home.
