OK France... Now's Your Big Chance!!
Deutschland, Deutschland Uber Fat Ass
Helmet tip to my other co-conspirator, PreVatII

An interesting article concerning the state of military preparedness of our grand allies. Once, they struck fear into the hearts of just about everyone. Now the only thing the German Army has in their hearts is congealed fat.

From Earth Times (Great Britain); Parliamentary commissioner: German soldiers too fat, smoke too much

Berlin - German soldiers are overweight, smoke too much and do not engage in enough sports, according to a report published Tuesday by the parliamentary commissioner for the defence force. "Male and female soldiers are too fat, partake little in sports and pay too little attention to what they eat," Reinhold Robbe said in his official report to parliament. He called the situation "shocking."

In the 18-29 age-group, military personnel are in worse condition than their civilian counterparts, with 40 per cent of soldiers overweight against 35 per cent in the general population, according to Robbe.

Despite the widespread availability of sports equipment in the army, more than 20 per cent don't engage in any sports at all. Robbe also noted that an alarming 70 per cent of military personnel were smokers.

It looks like Sgt. Schultz has become the role model for the German Army.

(Hogan's Heroes for those of you who may not remember the show.)

Given how most of the politicians over there have acted in the past few decades, I guess this is no surprize that the Army is following their lead. After all, when it has come to doing what is right & supporting the US because of the circumstances the average German politician's stance has been to play dumb & when confronted with the facts say: "I know nothing. . . . NOTHING!!!!!"

(Being 1/4 Penn Dutch German, I can get away with that & not be politically incorrect, as if I care.)

Being at least 1/4 German and married to a half German, I can ridicule my race too. But c'mon the French still can't beat them.
