    Both Germany and Switzerland have about 250 tanks. Additionally, if you count reserves, Switzerland (239,250) has more military personnel than Germany (207,650). Germany has almost 10 times the population of Switzerland. Perhaps we need to kick Germany out of NATO. That country has gone insane.

    (West) Germany was originally a bulwark against further Soviet expansion into Europe. Then it became a trip wire for a Soviet invasion. Then it became the economic cornerstone for the EU. Now it is an aging state trying to sell luxury cars to the US while placating the Russians. It would not surprise me if it officially declares it neutrality ala Sweden and Switzerland. Good riddance if it does.

    Whatever you do don’t piss off the Krauts. We don’t need them trying to take over the world again.
