Tenatra: Wolf_Blitzer: mcreadyblue: Wolf_Blitzer: ikanreed: And the German government puts up with this? This seems like the kind of thing that'll get our nice little NATO bases kicked out.They were German police. It doesn't matter if the Germans are pretending to be pissed at us right now to placate their whiners, if a "walk" turns into a riot that compromises the security of a US base on their soil, you have a major international incident.Really?I would think Yahoo publishing the location of the secret NSA spy center would be more of a compromise.It's clearly a base, nobody is trying to hide that even if they won't confirm its an NSA facility. I'm talking more along the lines of fences getting trampled, facilities being entered etc. Protests (and lets be honest, this was a protest) against foreign facilities on US soil would get the same sort of attention.The facility I worked at had a fence that would trigger an alarm if it was touched. If an alarm door from the building was tripped then all the base police on shift would speed down to our facility. The security forces had the authorization to use lethal force if you entered the fence without permission./Also good luck getting into the SCIF without a badge.
MadHatter500: omgrtfa: The jackboots aren't what they used to be, thankfully!Yes, these are much more comfortable. Please tell the Fuhrer the line troops appreciate this. We'll be able to kick in a lot more doors with these new boots.
