"This is a sign of solidarity": German Defense Minister announced an increase in the US military presence in the country

The United States will not withdraw the American military contingent from German territory; on the contrary, it is expected to increase. This was stated by German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer


The head of the German defense department held talks with her American counterpart Lloyd Austin. As a result, Kramp-Karrenbauer announced that the United States intends to increase the military contingent in Germany by another 500 people. According to the German Defense Minister, the increase in the American presence on German soil is "a sign of solidarity."

The troops in the FRG will be reinforced by 500 men. It is a strong sign of cohesion.

- she said at a briefing.

The German Defense Ministry clarified that today it is not known when additional forces from the United States will arrive, where they will be stationed and what tasks to perform.

Thus, we can state that the new American President Joe Biden is pursuing a policy that is fundamentally different from that of Donald Trump. The previous American leader planned to reduce the American contingent in Germany from almost 35 thousand to 25 thousand troops. Some of them were to be relocated to Poland, which Warsaw was so happy about.

Earlier, Biden suspended the withdrawal of troops from Germany in order to "study this issue." Apparently, the "study" came to an end, and instead of withdrawing the troops, a decision was made to strengthen the presence.

    Oh, and who would have doubted. Everyone has been withdrawn from Iraq for decades, and they are tired of withdrawing Afghanistan. What kind of Germany is there. Therefore, a woman at the head of the FRG Armed Forces stands, tk. the peasant does not order the owner to put it.

        Ended hurray! Selling bedding American, not the defense minister of sovereign-independent Germany!

        She has no military education - a complete "0" !.
        I remember that it was she - Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, being the Secretary General of the CDU - in connection with the incident in the Kerch Strait, she proposed to close the ports of Western countries for Russian ships from the Sea of ​​Azov while Russia is blocking the entry of Ukrainian ships into it.

          Is Germany so sovereign and independent if the occupation troops of the main aggressor in the world are located on its territory? For those who want to pry about the standard of living, study carefully the question of how much and on what the burghers spend, WHAT fines they have and for what, and then get out! for your scribbling in tyrnete "in countries with developed democracies" you would have already been beggars convicts. This is not Russia, where you are allowed to shit on the street and on the head of the government.

      With Biden, it's clear.
      And with the female defense ministers of Germany, nothing new.

      But what happens when US Vice President Kamala Harris, the first minority woman of color, comes to the fore? And this option is not excluded, even probable. For if the president cannot ... There is a deputy for him.

      Biden is a politician of the old school, he still saw Stalin alive (on TV, of course), was born in 1942 ... He met Brezhnev, he remembers the Cold War! And his mentality has long been formed. And the legacy and reputation of the Clinton and Obama administrations, to which he was directly involved, does not allow him to deviate from their line ...

        Maybe so, but the sanctions pressure on Russia and China, direct support for the APU's aggression against the LJNR, albeit in words, rough diplomatic steps with the expulsion of diplomats and the selection of property, the escalation of Russophobia after the arrival of Bidon indicate that not everything is so simple. Bidon is insane in his dementia. Any Harris or Blinken will slip anything under his signature. And he will sign, because "this woman" is a good person for him ... ah, exactly "President Harris"!

        Putin is not suitable for Biden as a son and is only 10 years younger than Biden. He also saw Stalin alive (on TV, of course), was born in 1952 ... I did not meet Brezhnev (not on the same scale), he remembers the Cold War! The question is even more interesting than about Kamila, Mishustin will replace him "if the president cannot" ...

      The US troops have not been withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan for another 20 years, but they have not withdrawn from Germany for 76 years, and they may withdraw from Afghanistan within 10 years, but they will NEVER withdraw from Germany. No wonder the Anglo-Saxons staged two world wars in which about 100 million people died.

        Not only will they not be withdrawn from Germany, they will also introduce more.
        What a pig Gorbachev and Co. planted on us when they themselves, without guarantees, brought the GSVG out of East Germany. It turns out without a fight they surrendered the territory that the United States has expanded to our current borders already. The hypocritical United States is insolent, and we are all retreating. Liberals and HSE alumni are our evil.

      As Trump said: "Germany is in no hurry to pay NATO two percent (of the country's GDP). - Therefore, we are withdrawing part of our contingent from Germany."
      And "Germany pays Russia billions of dollars every year for energy, and we have to protect Germany from Russia. How should we understand this?"
      Well, Trump's relationship with Merkel did not work out.
      As one Democratic senator put it, "Germany is the cornerstone of US-NATO relations in Europe. Therefore, these relations must be strengthened, not weakened."
      Which we are observing.

        So, in the "people" in Germany, the murmur has been going on for a long time on the topic: US soldiers shit on flower beds, beat peaceful burghers, use obscene language and behave rudely as in a colony, in queues at outlets without a queue, an insolent rod, and a lot, a lot of other things like that same ...
        But, the "people" choosing the CDU-CSU and other pro-Atlanticists - they themselves keep in power those that do nothing with the occupation, even realizing that no Iran and Russia will attack Europe ...

All my life I have been dealing with the issues of family, women, the elderly, .. And then luck smiled) She professionally confirmed that the occupation of Germany by American soldiers is very good !!! Occupied German women will be able to adequately offer their intimate places to NATO soldiers and give birth to many new Deutsche Soldatn.
