Unable to even meet their NATO commitments now, the Germans feel the time has come to play an even greater role militarily.
Defense minister Christine Lambrecht said Germans had got used to seeing the nation’s military as just a kind of disaster relief agency, but “those times are over.”
Now the disaster will become more proactive or something? It’s always a joy to watch. Germans pretending that Germans would ever use their military to defend themselves, much less anyone else. The Bundeswehr‘s sole purpose is to be the alibi army; the excuse for Germany’s monsterous and highly profitable weapons industry. No one here takes this woman’s comments seriously.
