The German military is the laughing stock of a Europe right now. The military of Luxembourg could probably push to Berlin within 2 days if they really wanted to.

Lol. Seriously? That bad?

I know nothing of Germany's modern military, so I'm finding this very interesting.

Yes mate, I worked with them last year in Germany. They're not what you'd call particularly military or aggressive. Which is a pity as there were a couple (normally the ones who'd done exchanges with other countries) who were quite frustrated at the attitude of their lords and masters.

Wow! Incredible the difference that just a couple of generations of social re-engineering can make.
