German Court Reverses Anti-'Nazi-Era' Military Restrictions

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Late on Friday, the BBC reported that the German military will in future be able to use its weapons on German streets in an extreme situation. This ruling, we hope purely a technicality - but clearly warranting some concern as to 'why now?' - by Germany's Constitutional Court, reverses some of the severe restriction on military deployments that were set down in the German constitution after Nazi-era abuses. After WWII, the new constitution ruled that soldiers could not be deployed with guns at the ready on German soil - the court has now changed that (it seems on the basis of terrorist concerns - as opposed to widespread bank runs, populist revolts at bailout-back-downs, or Hollande/Monti/Draghi sending over some boys).

Econ,

You could not be more correct about the Non Pork Eaters.

In Canada and the U.S., most of our immigrant population at this point in time in history come from Mexico, Central and S. America.

In Europe, their immigrants come from the Middle East and N. Africa.

Germany itself is popular with Turks. Nice people an all, but their cultural baggage conflicts heavily with German society.

The French have it particularly bad. More than 40% of the voting population is of Algerian descent.

As for me, my heritage stretches back to the Slave Pits of Lithuania.

Is it game on? The pressure on the system is tremendous. Look at the sharp rise in the 10-year over the last few weeks. The economy floated along as long as the rate of money printing was speeding up or interested rates were falling, and now neither is happening. Either yields are rising due to the bond bubble bursting, or yields are rising on expectations the Bernank will be announcing another LSAP program Aug. 31. Might be a bit of both.

Do not fear the US Military. The whole of the Military worldwide was numbered at 1.3 million in 2010, after which has been cut left and right. Even if they had 600K in the US (which they don't, closer to 350K), 1 out of 4 is combat, the rest are support. The support ratio is 3-4 to 1. Given those numbers, they might field 200K combat troops.

With over 200,000 cities, townships and incorporated bergs, that is 1 troop per city. Figure a minimum of 5 troops per checkpoint, times 3 for a 24 hour period, that is about 13,000 checkpoints.

DHS has between 110-230K employees, with a 1 in 4 combat to support, that is about 6,000 checkpoints (actually, the trained LEO portion is closer to 12-15 support to 1) .

It ain't gonna be enough. The local LEO's have their hands full as it is with layoffs and empty hire slots so deal them out. Nope, fear is their only weapon.

In theory, you may be correct.

However, from a historical perspective, a relatively few Conquistadors conquered Aztec held areas of Mexico, and I am fairly confident that the Conquistadors were outnumbered much more than our troops would be.

Unfortunately, the most prepared of our population will have a difficult time against M1 Abrams tanks, aircraft, missiles, artillery, daisy cutters, and a variety of chemical and biological agents.

In short, if/when things get real, no one is going to play fair or by the Geneva Convention rules, and all it will take is one good example, such as Lidice to get a point across.

I think that the German elite, just like everywhere else, see's the writing on the wall.

The whole worldwide financial ponzi scheme is close to collapse. Pure and simple. The elites want to be able to respond when it goes down but they are shortsighted. Sure. they'll bribe their mercenaries for a while but when the imports stop, unless they (and we in the USA) have massive food stocks, which they will eventually run out of, will lose those whom they are unable to feed or corral.

We are all in the death throngs of the collapse of the financial system as we know it, It will take a while to resurrect something to take its place.

I'm agnostic as far as religion but I keep seeing this saying over and over. It used to make me laugh of the gullibility of folks but now, I think it is good advice:

"A Prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it". Proverbs 22:3

Then again, I feel uneasy when I make rational arguments(to other sheeple) for purchasing physical gold/silver. Maybe I need to find a nice farm to work on.

can't tell too much abt yer situ from this, but if you have a few spare hours 2X/week, go to the local assocForRetardedChildren (ARC) and

ask them if they would like a little help;  if they do, just show up on time and...see what happens

this kindness......should not go unpunished, so anything might happen......good luck!

for a paycheck:  try laborReady or manPower;  fill out a short form with the labor contracor;  show up at some paramilitary early time and get paid the same day

not much, but it counts for socialSecurity!  and you'll make a  few bux over a week and be way too tired to spend anything too

I must say, as a long time reader of Zhedge, I get the most enjoyment from reading the comments. I laugh my arse off all the time. The above comments are no exception. Tyler needs to arrange a Zero Hedge Convention so we can all meet and drink hard adult beverages together, and laugh and cry and share stories about our muppet friends and relatives. To revell in our shared despair. To know that we are not alone. We are a family. We should all meet. We will laugh and cry and hug each other! CD, you make the arrangements.

This gets a little more relevant every day.

 

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

So much for German courts and German constitutions.  When Germans try to get upset about bailing out Europe, they'll feel the lash.

First intelligent conjecture I've read on this column.  The other brainless nonsense about the 4th Reich and Goosesteppers is from fucktards who probably have never been out of the US.

This could also be due to some trouble brewing with the resident islamists, who buy Kalashnikov automative weapons.  The German part of the population owns very few firearms, and a VERY low percentage of those are autoloaders, so I doubt that TPTB are much worried about them.

Well, to be fair, if Israel can claim land 'cause it was theirs 2000 years ago, then Germany should be able to claim land that was theirs half a century ago.

Sliding slope here. Better keep an eye on the fire detection system in the Reichstag, if there is any. Armies should stay in their barracks. The only reason to come out of there is when the country is invaded by a foreign army. The army can help when there is a flood or earth quake and such, but they should leave their guns in the barracks. For enforcing and upholding the law there is the police.

There is already a foreign army with over 200 bases and 75,000 troops in Germany.

Re German Court Reverses Anti-'Nazi-Era' Military Restrictions

 

Any news on how many DHS/FEMA/TSA/ATF/Michael-Chertoff-type "facilitators"  are being sent over from  The Homeland to Zee Fatherland...  you know - just to "show them the ropes" kinda thing?

After all, it would hardly be surprising if the Wehrmacht was a little bit "rusty" after having been out of business since May 8th 1945 - would it?

The "Facilitators" were sent long ago right after the war. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip

They sent the man to the moon and developed ICBM system, jet engines etc.

We even hire the SS to run the Intelleginsia in Germany.
