    42% of Germans want us to leave anyways.

    Poll: 42% of Germans want US troops out of country - News - Stripes

    Germans want Donald Trump to pull US troops out of Germany, poll finds | The Independent

    Poland would be my choice as the people are much more friendly.
    It's shocking that Germany has so long tolerated so many war criminals in their country.

    When did Putin tell Trump to push for this ?

    Murderous dictators who steal their countries money and then go looking for more will never be trusted in America. Once we rid ourselves of our Manchurian Candidate we will sanction Russia until it is broke. Then maybe someone sane will take over but I'm not holding my breath. Russia is a sad, broken 3rd world country with delusions of grandeur.

    Ahh, so your country only support murderous "presidents" who want to be global tyrants and steal other countries money. The kind looking for world domination.

    I see. No wonder Donald Trump is so unpopular, he hasn't started a single war, and he makes peace negotiations.

    The record of Europe and Russia in things military is abysmal. Germany and Russia have been at the root of the wars of the 20th century over there. Isolationists in USA have always been wrong. Completely wrong. No one anywhere can reasonably trust American isolationists on the issue of war and peace.
    have no fear - something very likely wount happen. Our navy helicopters donīt fly over water, our G36 shoots round the corner if it gets warm and there are very few militaristic people left here ;o)

    And the German Leopard tank is arguably the nastiest machine in the business. One of its unique features is that the sucker fires accurately on the move in rough terrain. There are other tanks that fire on the move but only from the putting green. Putin quit on his T-14 Armada which was too expensive in its set piece grouping of several vehicles but the sleek and agile Leopard's roar was what decided it for him.


    It's not the German people that are of concern. Rather, each of you over there have your historic elites who have long memories when it comes to wars or slights. Same in east Asia where the Chinese remember you didn't kowtow a hundred years ago.

    We're talking Putin and his new arms race producing weapons that destroy worlds. Nobody's population wants that. It's the Old World elites who drive the recurring madness and whose pride and prejudice is the torch. Nobody in his right mind wants Europe rearming because they're driven to it by Crazy Ivan himself, Russia. Russia and Germany were enemies in WW I and in WW II and Germany was Jekyll and Hyde during the Cold War. Putin's standing in Germany has gone into the crapper. Right down there with Trump. While you guys say you're different I have no trouble picturing you dabbling at your laptop while sipping an espresso.

    My impression is that people just want peace and to leave others in peace, and have as little military or military activity as possible within reason. They don't want any arms race or spending lots of money on new war technology. It is the tyrannical political elite in the world who goes against the wishes of the people, and it's perpetuating. People just want stability in their life and live in safety, they don't want any schemes of domination or global powergames. So why is it so damn difficult for the political tyrants to do what people want? All of them are guilty, not just one class of political tyrants from one country, but all political tyrants from all countries.

    All people share common interests and need and want the same things in life. So what is the problem? The tyrants are the problem, and our political system attracts and play into the hands of tyrants. Every power system does.

    So when will we actually have any democracy in this world? When will the group of tyrants who rule our countries actually do what the people want? By the people for the people and of the people.

    Russia didn't bomb Hiroshima and Nagaskai. Guess which evil country that was. Russia's response is to US escalating the nuclear race.

    Compare that to the USA, which is the most militaristic danger the world has ever known.
