    Germans of present don't have the spirit of those times.
    For a long time 'patriotism' / 'nationalism' was socially unacceptable in post-WW2 Germany.
    But the youth increasingly becomes more patriot. No doubt.
    Success in international sports events and the economic crisis in Europe seems to fuel this trend.

    And it is not correct to imply, that the Russian side suffered more then the German side in the Battle for Berlin.

    1945 Berlin was 2.7 Million people (4.3 Million in 1939).
    Two-third of them women, the men were either youngsters or grandpas.

    BBC - History - World Wars: The Battle for Berlin in World War Two

    The Soviets had human and material loss in Battle of Berlin, but look at the pictures of Berlin.
    A lot of infrastructure was destroyed, which you have also count as 'German loss'.

    Germany has token forces in Afg - not taking part in Libya.

    Japan lets punk North Korea walk all over them.
