Leaked: German Army Armed With Broomsticks, Can't Even Pay Their Fair Share For NATO Reader 07/12/2018 (Thu) 03:13:00 Id: c0d17a [Preview] No. 10916
Germany's military is so underfunded its troops used BROOMSTICKS painted black as mock weapons during a Nato defence exercise.

But the highly embarrassing episode, revealed in a leaked report, is just the beginning of the country's woes as it fights to reverse chronic army shortages.

It comes as Donald Trump has vowed to make Chancellor Angela Merkel increase her defence spending to reach the minimum spending obligations all Nato members must adhere to.

General Harald Kujat, a former chief of staff of the German armed forces, later described it as a "huge embarrassment".

The unit was supposed to be ready to deploy whenever a Nato member was threatened, he warned.

He added: "If that is not the case, then both for Nato, and for the Federal Republic of Germany, this is a huge embarrassment," The Telegraph reported.

And a spokesperson for the Defence Ministry stated: "In the case of the Boxer armoured vehicle, it was being used as a mobile headquarters, and a weapon is not foreseen and not necessary for a mobile headquarters.

"It was not a fighting vehicle. So we have no explanation why the soldiers would simulate a weapon."

In 2015 it also emerged the German military was using ordinary civilian Mercedes vans as stand-ins for armoured personnel carriers.

And The Times today reports all six of the country's submarines were recently put out of service at the same time due to various repairs.

I hope when all is said and done, the Germans get so fucking angry with Merkel, they not only throw her ass and party out of power completely, but bring Hitler back from the dead to spit in her grave.

>bring Hitler back from the dead
Metaphorically, at least. Germans owe him the proper respect he deserves for bringing them from the brink of mass starvation instead of buying into the narrative of foreign parasites. Keeping in mind, he wasn't the agitator of WW2.

Yah, I'm learning that we have been totally lied to about what really happened. I always knew the gas chamber story was total BS, but the Jews also lied about everything else.

The death camps? Not really. Slave labor prisons for criminals and communist subversives is more like it.

The books burned? That was actually German people willingly burning communist philosophy and pornography after communism tore Germany apart and wrecked their whole economy.

I'm still taking a little time each day to learn a little more, while also focusing on the news as well. So I don't know everything yet, but I'm willing to learn the greatest story never told.

And those weren't as much prisons as mandatory resorts. The intent, anyway. If it wasn't for Typhus spreading lice (which also affected German front lines) and Allied bombing of supplies causing starvation for both camp prisoners and soldier alike, I'd check myself into one of those camps. My workplace doesn't have a brothel, swimming pool, live theater, orchestra or sports facility.

Wait, they're actually admitting it's a swimming pool now? Ages ago they used to say it was used to drown Jews. I'm not shitting you.

Just something else to add to the list of their outrageous atrocity lies.

Absolutely, of all things I actually heard a conservative German-American Christian talk show host talk about this in detail before, that the reality of these supposed "death camps" was actually false, they were prison labor camps and the only reason so many people died in those labor camps was because German railroads and other transportation infrastructure was being bombed. Therefore the Germans could not get the necessities they needed (food, water, proper sanitation, medicine, etc.) to the prisoners and they ended up dying in those camps.

I'm not going to argue about whether those camps were for political prisoners, perhaps they were, but the truth is no one was "gassed" or tortured in any way. All death was due to the natural consequences of war. When I heard this guy talking on the radio (he's a staunch conservative Christian) I was like "damn" they are going to throw him off the fucking airwaves. And they did.

Blah, the *story of these supposed "death camps" was actually false.
