(Foobies)   Angela Merkel says there should be "no uncertainty" that Germany's armed forces will remain in northern Afghanistan. So they're moving south, right? Or are they staying put? Damned German double negatives   (thelocal.de) divider line 72

When have German troops movements ever been of any concern?
Oh..never mind.

Ask Geraldo! He knows about troop movements.

I am not currently unable to fail to announce my lack of desire in understanding what Merkel failed to declare. Also, blah blah blippity blah.

You know who else had German troops in Afghanistan?

cmon bundeswehr, lets get this show on the road! The Royal Dutch Marines are making you guys look like fat lazy bastards.

I bet your Falli Truppen are chomping at the bit to get into some scraps.

Let us not forget, germany, Afghanistan is the justifiable war on terror, you guys should have no ethical problems using your armed forces on the taliban.

the bundeswehr is built for more than building schools and repairing bridges. Use it for its intended purpose!

From TFA:

Regarding British and American criticism that Germany is shirking its duty in Afghanistan by staying in the relatively more calm north, Merkel added that countries "shouldn't enter a race for danger."

She said the the main objective in Afghanistan remains helping the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission to achieve political goals in the region.


This woman is a complete moron. Her troops are out of the "danger race" because of the fighting being done in the south by the Americans, Canadians, British and Dutch forces.

why is this confusing?

If there was uncertainty, than it would not be clear whether or not the troops would be staying in Northern Afghanistan.

But since there should be "no uncertainty" that the troops will remain, then the troops will definitely remain.

Comprende?

/did not RTFA, would that have added to my own confusion?

So they're moving south, right?

Ha. German chicks are sexy, (more so if they are wearing leather and carry an arsenal of whips and handcuffs) but I hate the language. It sounds like dogs barking.

Let us not forget, germany, Afghanistan is the justifiable war on terror, you guys should have no ethical problems using your armed forces on the taliban.

Only legal/constitutional ones.
Somehow people didn't like German soldiers much after 1945 so the Bundeswehr, when it finally (was allowed to be) created, is legally supposed to be a defensive force.
And saying "we are defending Germany by sending troops to Afghanistan" is stretching the meaning of that quite a bit (psst, don't mention Germany's participation in the NATO bombings during the Balkan "peace mission".).

the bundeswehr is built for more than building schools and repairing bridges. Use it for its intended purpose!

I suppose that would be driving around with lots of tanks through the flat lands in Northern Germany to stop the Sovjet attack on Western Europe.

Or to put it differently:
"The Bundeswehr is only good for stalling the enemy at the borders until military shows up" (~4:30)
 
2008-03-10 06:56:06 PM
I think her original phrase in German was "Drang nach Osten".

This goes well with the Polish thread.

This. Assuming they resort to the old ways and annex and begin to re-settle the areas currently controlled by the Taliban, peace will be ensured. Germany could hand the region to Israel's control, if they felt guilty about the process. What could go wrong?

Mit welchem Nation seine eigene Sicherheit nicht kampft? Ich denke vielleicht, dass der parliment mit feigen Defatisten voll ist!

Ich weiss, dass die Bundeswehr sehr gut ist, und sie wollen kampfen!

NATO wird gebrochen. Welch gut es ist, wenn Halfte nicht kampfen wird. Das ist eine militarische Verbindung!

Aber bedanken Sie sich dafar, dass Nederland kampft.
