    'French base' for German troops

    BBC NEWS | Europe | 'French base' for German troops

    Any reactions to this? Its rather extraordinary considering where Europe was just 60 years ago. It is another proof, in a long line, that in the past 60 years no place has changed more than Europe.

    I don't know.
    60 years ago Blacks could even drink from the same water fountain as Whites in America, and now one runs the country.

    Nothing new here. Another year, another French surrender.

    This is probably just a bureaucratic way to bolster the statistics on foreign deployment. Considering that the rules of engagement in France are little different than in Afghanistan, this makes it look like Germany is sending more troops out of the country:
    German special forces had an important Taliban commander in their sights in Afghanistan. But he escaped -- because the Germans were not authorized to use lethal force.
    Just sarcasm.

    Really? Wow, just 60 years ago the US was at war with Germany and now we have bases there. I guess no place has changed more than pretty much anywhere else.

    60 years ago, plenty of countries weren't countries.

    Both the French and German Governments see their two country's as being the leaders of the EU.
    One of the idea's that each administration has proposed is the formation of an EU Army.
    I remember when German troops went to train with British troops in Wales, the furor was something to behold, the fuss lasted until something which warranted bigger headlines appeared, after which such training exercises became the norm.
    Should the EU eventually become something like the United States of Europe, I would suppose that much as happens in the US, individual States would have their equivalent of the US National Guard, while the USEU would have regular standing armed forces.
    Quite where this would lead NATO is unclear.

    Wow, you really look at things in a fair way..
    OFcourse you have bases because you forced them there..

    Geez; if you are blind to see this difference, and the difference between the US having bases in Germany and Germany having bases in France, then I really give you up, because its no point in doing anything but ignoring you to avoid dumbification.

    I hope this thread is not an example of where the US is intellectually.
