Syria conflict: Half of German Tornado jets ‘not airworthy’
Ain’t no big deal, as German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has stressed, because Germany only needs to send six Tornado jets for the proposed mission against Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria. Six that maybe ought to be halfway operational, she means.
This German war machine, she is stll broken, señor (thank goodness weapons exports are still A-OK, though).
“Die Lage der fliegenden Systeme bleibt unbefriedigend.”
