Germany will increase defense spending in 2019

18
Germany next year will allocate 1,3% of GDP for military needs, but the goal remains the allocation of 2% declared in Wales, reports RIA News Statement by Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.




In 2019, Germany will increase the share of GDP for defense to 1,3%,
Merkel said at a press conference in Washington after meeting with Donald Trump.

According to her, Berlin “seeks to comply with the defense budget agreements reached in Wales.”

Recall that under US pressure, NATO countries over the past year have made several commitments to increase military spending. In particular, it was decided to draw up annual national plans in order to indicate how they intend to increase military budgets to 2% of GDP, invest in core potential and participate in the operations of the alliance.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg said that in 2018, 8 from 29 alliance countries intend to spend at least 2% of GDP on defense, and by 2024, their number will increase to fifteen.

      This is Germany.
      The money will go to fight homophobia in the Bundeswehr, to increase the attractiveness of military service for people with a changed gender, and to develop a new uniform for pregnant men.

    The spring is still compressing ... sooner or later it will shoot.

      There is such a thing in mechanics as spring overload. In this case, there are 2 developments in the development of events:
      a) the coils close and in the long run the spring is "compacted" (accepted) to the pointlessness of its state.
      b) if the spring is not rammed, but there is overload, the shock-absorbing unit will suffer.
      ------------
      Total: Not everything that in potential can "shoot" - necessarily shoots. Here in the Baltic states began to "tighten the nut" in the national. channel, while opening the border. Result: all (well, most) politically, economically or socially dissatisfied civic elements had the opportunity to blame over the hill. Piled up. Now society is much more stable and nothing "suddenly" will not "shoot." Divide (allow self-separation with the offer of alternatives favorable to you) and rule.

    Wow ... And all this is against Iran. According to Western politicians ... Persians can be proud ... The Western world is sleeping and afraid of the Persians. He eats and is afraid of the Persians, works and is afraid of the Persians. It is time for the Persians to instruct the sculptural compositions in the country to the afraid Europeans. Europeans are lying in a pool of shit and scared to fear the Iranians. Or are all the NATO’s aggressive attempts still against Russia?

    What should we discuss their costs? We would have to cope with our own! And let them spend their money even on elastic bands for garter stockings! What did you think during the war will they give out tights?
