What’s wrong with German’s military lately? Germany’s army, the Bundeswehr, is one of NATOs largest fores but it’s plagued by planes that can’t fly, tanks that break down, and troops that admire the Nazis. Further, the military seems not to have enough money to fund build its newest fighting vehicles known as the “Puma.” And it appears that as a result of this Germany’s military is not performing well at home or overseas!
Reportedly, the military has a shortage of vital spare parts as well and equipment regularly suffers from technical failures to the point that several tanks and armored vehicles can no longer operate. And then there are the growing numbers of German soldiers who admire the former armed forces of the Third Reich, the Wehrmacht. Yet, Germans have a reputation for being detailed and efficient excelling in technology and engineering and their weapons manufacturing companies are some of the top in the world!
The military is also reportedly short on small arms and at one recent NATO training event the German’s armored vehicle known as the “Boxer” didn’t even have any weapons on it!! So the soldiers took broomsticks and painted them black and mounted them on their Boxer turrets in a futile attempt to simulate the 12.7 mm machine guns that should have been mounted instead! When questioned the German command attempts to downplay the whole thing by insisting it was only a training exercise and that the troops therefore didn’t even need weapons! Reportedly, more than half of the Bundeswehr’s fleet of armored tanks is out of service or unfit for duty! In a recent UN military action in Mali German troops got in trouble because they were forced out of action when their armored vehicles broke down due to the heat, dust, and rough terrain. The German Air Force, Luftwaffe der Bundeswehr, is reportedly in no better shape than the army either. It was recently reported that the air force is in a state of “catastrophic disrepair” including German aircraft fighting in Afghanistan. War jets are being constantly grounded due to technical problems including screws that have become loose and poor lighting in the cockpits!
A German Air Force helicopter crashed last August and two pilots were killed. It was found that prior to crashing the copter lost its rotor blades and other parts! The Navy is also suffering problems. German submarines lack spare parts and suffer from technical and mechanical problems. German military officials say they are working to fix the problems but the mechanical and technical equipment problems seem to be getting worse not better.
German soldiers have a reputation for being well-disciplined, well-trained, and reliable troops but a series of recent scandals is shattering that image. Some soldiers have been arrested on charges of pedophilia, rape, and sexual abuse. A growing number of soldiers have expressed sympathies for the former Nazi military and ideology and some soldiers are supportive of outlawed pro-Nazi political parties and movements. German leaders have been clear that the Nazi Wehrmacht does not serve as a foundation for the Bundeswehr but some German soldiers don’t see it that way! Last year German authorities found posters of Nazi soldiers, Nazi steel helmets, and replicas of the former Wehrmacht’s weapons in several barracks. The military launched a full investigation. Another far-right scandal involved a soldier named Franco Albrecht who was a German 1st Lieutenant who is accused of plotting a racial based terror attack. Apparently, he’d been serving in the military and at the same time had a Syrian alias name he was using to collect state “refugee” benefits. He planned to blame the attack on Syrian migrants in Germany.
In another incident members of Germany’s elite KSK special forces held a controversial farewell party for an outgoing officer and hired a prostitute and saluted the officer in Nazi fashion rather than in the normal salute fashion. So what are the solutions for all this? The German Defense Minister wants to modernize the Bundeswehr and change the names of several bases so it is clear that the army does NOT rest on the foundations of the former Nazi military. That’s it? Change the names of bases? How is that going to do anything? Maybe the Defense Minister IS the problem!
Let’s face the truth and facts here. Maybe Chancellor Merkel should funnel MORE money to the military and LESS to her beloved “migrants” and “refugees”!! I strongly suspect that what is happening in the military is far more widespread than she might think and the same is true among the general population of native Germans as well I suspect. That explains why in the past couple of weeks there have been growing anti-migrant demonstrations across Germany! Is there some sinister plot here to weaken the German military so that should the need ever arise they will be unable to stop the Muslim Conquest of Europe?? Just askin’
I put NOTHING past the globalists like Merkel who want no borders, week militaries, and a one world global government! Barack Obama weakened the US military and now Trump is having to piece it back together. Merkel is doing the same to the German military as Obama did! She doesn’t like President Trump because he does NOT share her globalist agenda and that is apparent!
For the German military to be lacking spare parts and suffering from equipment failures and lacking guns and ammo is absolutely NOT German! Germans have a long, long history of being efficient not inefficient! Something is greatly amiss with all this! The globalists know that powerful militaries must be weakened or they will never be able to implement their one world Leftist government that the UN and George Soros so wish for and Merkel too apparently!
The Defense Minister’s “solution” to change the names of some of the German bases is beyond laughable. Is it a JOKE? She really thinks that is going to keep soldiers from admiring their former counterparts in the Nazi era? Seriously? What planet did she just drop off of?
Sounds to me like Germany’s needs to put more money into the military and less into the “migrants” shock troops! Sounds to me like German soldiers might need some more discipline and some inspiration to instill PRIDE AND HONOR in them deeper! If all this continues what’s left of the military may one day RISE UP against the German government and that would not be good news I suspect! Governments that don’t keep their militaries happy historically don’t last long and that’s a fact. Militaries have a long history of getting fed up and marching on their own governments and removing them. Wise and competent leaders keep their soldiers happy! Ignorant ones don’t!! I suspect Merkel will soon be out and replaced by a new Chancellor from the far-right as we’ve seen in countries like Hungary and Austria.
Don’t think that Germany’s military stands alone in being plagued by these problems as many Western militaries are experiencing the same including that of the US. Pro-Neo Nazi leanings have been discovered among the US military too along with a high degree of Nationalistic ideals. Basically, the militaries of the Western world have had enough of the globalist leftist agenda and I don’t blame them one bit!! When the Dems lost the last POTUS election the DNC was asked if they should have been more in the middle of the political spectrum and their response was that they weren’t enough to the LEFT! Remember that? They know their time is short and I suspect they fear the US military one day rising up against THEM! That may well happen one day and don’t believe for a minute that old wives tale, “Oh that could never happen in wonderful America.” It can and I suspect it will.
The Western world is in a gross state of decline and much of that decline has been brought about by globalists gaining power and doing things like weakening our militaries and our morals and values. They are doing their best to convince all of us that we must accept the immoral as the “new morality” which is a cock of SHIT! We are supposed to agree with anything no matter how SICK and DEGENERATE it is and believe that it is “ok and normal” when we know for a fact it is NOT. We are supposed to believe that everything is ok when we know for a fact it is far from being ok.
Western people are looking for a strong and charismatic leader (no Trump is not it). They are looking for someone to lead them in a final battle against the encroaching Leftists! They are looking for someone to motivate and inspire them to action. Such a person WILL come upon the stage one day soon I suspect. I have long warned of an American Hitler arising but he may not simply be an American Hitler but a Hitler of the Western World. Call him the “antichrist” if you wish or call it the dawn of some sort of 4th Reich if you like. What it all amounts to is that the stage in the Western Word is being set for such a leader and those who pay attention to politics and current affairs know it is coming! The Leftists have pressed too far and the moderates of the world have not pressed enough!! The Right hasn’t pressed far enough either and, frankly, I fear the ultra-right as much as I fear the Leftists as both are RADICAL and I think dangerous! Let us not forget the atrocity caused by Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, and other extremists!! Theirs was not good news for anyone especially for the masses!!
Finally I also want to say this. There is no doubt that the regime Adolf Hitler committed many atrocities. Hitler was a tyrant and under his regime the German people were living under tyranny. At the end of WW2 the Allies basically forced Germany and Germans to live for decades under a blanket of shame. That was most likely a mistake as we might soon discover. A person or a nation that is forced to live in shame for long periods of time eventually rebel and strike out many times in very big ways. This may be what is beginning to brew in Germany today, frankly, and Merkel’s allowance of massive numbers of Mid Eastern “migrants” and “refugees” into Germany may well turn out to be the “straw that broke the camel’s back.” People and nations can only tolerate so much and then something snaps. That snap is not often a good thing and is typically disastrous. A people, ANY people, must feel some sense of pride in themselves, their culture, their nation, AND THEIR HISTORY even if that history may not have been so great at times. To deny a nation and a people that human right is to set the stage for a backlash perhaps on a scale never seen before. I believe this is what is brewing inside Germany today and not only Germany but also America and other Western Nations. I don’t see a good future in all of this for any of us.
