Military Review

In Germany, almost half of the inhabitants spoke in favor of resuming conscription into the Bundeswehr

62

Recently, the sociological service Kantar conducted a survey of the German population regarding the possible prospects for the restoration of military conscription. As it turned out, 47% of respondents support the idea of ​​restoring conscription. 34% of Germans were against compulsory military service, and another 19% refused to answer the question.


In 2011, we recall, the mandatory conscription in Germany was abolished. Berlin followed the example of the "senior" allies in the face of the United States and Great Britain. For many young Germans, the abolition of conscription has become a joy news: not everyone dreamed of serving in the Bundeswehr, even in good conditions.

However, the situation began to change rapidly after Russia launched a military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. The militaristic propaganda that has intensified in Western countries has done its job: many residents of Germany, like other European countries, have believed in the myth of the Russian threat and will now support both an increase in defense spending from the German budget, and a build-up of military potential, and the restoration of conscription for military service.

Although Berlin has not yet officially announced the transition to a conscription or mixed principle of manning the armed forces, there is talk about this. Because of the Russian military operation, there was also talk of conscripting reservists who already have experience in the ranks of the Bundeswehr. In any case, Berlin may decide to restore the conscription system for manning the armed forces, explaining this by the allegedly increased threat of a Russian attack on Europe. At the same time, interestingly, most of the 47 percent of those who spoke in favor of conscription could not decide whether they themselves or their relatives were ready to go to conscription service in the army.

    So they hope that the "conscription" to the EU Bundeswehr only concerns migrants from Africa and the East. German pragmatism in action.

          This is not a Ukrainian rake. Ancient Rome stepped on this rake during the mass barbarization of the legions.

      Perhaps everything is somewhat simpler: according to data for 2020-2021, the population of Germany aged 45 to 85 is 48%, which, as it were, is the number of those who are "for", but who the call itself does not threaten in any way)

      Don't mix everything together. Flies separately, cutlets separately.
      In the army, as in Russia, only граждане countries and numerous refugees, neither Arabs nor today's Ukrainians, are not called to it. Well, during the Second World War, the Bundeswehr existed separately from the SS.
      ..

              Hmm .. and the Army of the Russian Empire, which fought for the king, father and the Red Army is the same thing?
              Or the Red Army and modern Russian?
              ...
              Don't mix everything together. The German cross comes from the Teutonic. And he is much older than Hitler. However, like the red star, it has very ancient roots.

          There are many Russians there. If they give citizenship after the service, all vacancies will be closed. At the same time, the language in the Bundeswehr will be changed.

                Do not agree? So, reconsider the stories about the evacuation from Afghanistan?

        At the very beginning of the operation, our armed forces went to Energodar and agreed with the locals on joint patrolling of the station. But yesterday the mayor of the city handed out weapons to the terrorist defense and began to build barricades. Fighting began after 15 p.m. By nightfall, the training building at the nuclear power plant was set on fire. Zelensky went on the air at night and began to shout that the Russian Armed Forces were firing from tanks at the ZNPP. By morning, the necessary services arrived and extinguished the building.
        Great Britain on this news ran to the UN to introduce a no-fly zone.

    The Germans want to fight again. Only they don’t know that the Russians have steel eggs and a cast-iron head. No matter how much you hit them, you’ll still break your leg. So for the Russians there is only one way left - forward and forward, to Germany and so on, right up to Washington and Los Angeles. After all, the Russians do not have a head, but cast iron.!!

    Dear, stop using drugs, they will not bring you to good ....

      They just understand that NATO will not protect them. NATO has its own interests. So they decided to create their own army again, if they still pour military rhetoric into the brain, then they definitely want to follow the old rake. Only this is again the 3rd World War, only cockroaches will survive in it, and that is not a fact. NATO and the United States would also not twitch at Ukraine, I think a preventive strike will be enough to cool the heads of even schizophrenics ...

    The Germans should periodically post reports of the Sovinformburo on the websites. This is to refresh the memory. Now for 1943, the time of the liberation of Ukraine and Kyiv. Well, especially stubborn, the words of Comrade Stalin in response to Goebbels' speech "The Germans want a total war, They will get it." And yet, our Russians love tourist trips, sometimes in tanks.

    The Ukrainian authorities banned the posting of video content on the social network - it is too demoralizing for the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

    You may have already noticed that the amount of visual content this morning has been significantly reduced - there is no video of combat clashes, not just video from the war zone. This is explained by yesterday's order of the Kiev authorities: both local media and ordinary residents were categorically forbidden to post any videos anywhere. This is due to the fall in morale on the Ukrainian side at the front - no matter how Ukrainian propaganda tries to show its successes, the defeat of the National Battalions and the burnt columns of the retreating units can no longer be hidden. In fact, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to somehow save the state of affairs at the front, where people already demoralized by what is happening are refusing to fight.
