And what would Von Moltke the Elder have to say about all this?
"Germany’s soldiers of misfortune"
"The once mighty Bundeswehr is looking increasingly threadbare."
"BERLIN — Fighter jets and helicopters that don’t fly. Ships and submarines that can’t sail. Severe shortages of everything from ammunition to underwear."
. . . .
"Once one of the fiercest (and most brutal) fighting forces on earth, today’s German army increasingly looks more like a volunteer fire department — last month, mountain troops were dispatched to shovel snow from roofs in Bavaria — than a modern military machine."
AND MERKEL AND MACRON WANT TO START A EUROPEAN ARMY THE MAJOR CONSTITUENT FORCES WOULD BE THE GERMAN AND FRENCH? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!
See recent blog entries the topic of which is German military unpreparedness:
"Wir. Dienen. Deutschland."
With what I am not sure.
