German Army Prepares For "Break-Up Of European Union" Or Worse...

The German military is preparing for a number of scenarios over the next two decades ranging from "the disintegration of the EU" to "multipolar competition" and the unraveling of Western order.

According to an internal report seen by Der Spiegel, the 102-page “Strategic Perspective 2040” report - adopted in late February and kept under wraps since then - outlines six scenarios for how social trends and international conflicts are likely to play out and influence German security.

In one of the six scenarios ("The EU in Disintegration and Germany in Reactive Mode"), the authors assume a "multiple confrontation".

The future projection describes a world in which the international order erodes after "decades of instability", the value systems worldwide diverge and globalization is stopped.

 

"The EU enlargement has been largely abandoned, other states have left the community Europe has lost its global competitiveness," write the Bundeswehr strategists:

 

"The increasingly disorderly, sometimes chaotic and conflict-prone world has dramatically changed the security environment of Germany and Europe."

In the fifth scenario ("West to the East"), some eastern EU countries are freezing the state of European integration while others have "joined the Eastern bloc".

In the fourth scenario ("multipolar competition"), extremism is on the rise and there are EU partners who "even occasionally seem to seek a specific approach to Russia's" state capitalist model ".

The document expressly makes no prognosis, but all scenarios are "plausible with the 2040 time horizon," write the authors.

What does it matter?  The largets German naval vessel currently useable is the size of a mid-size Hudson river ferry; there are no submarines which work, and of the 108 fighter jets the country has eight can fly.  Oh yeah, there is no money for practice rounds, thus soliders are given painted black broomsticks and told to say "bang." Denmark could invade and take Hamburg before eventually being stopped by farmers and police departments.  Germany has no military.

True, but that requires Germans to be in Germany and be proud of being German in Germany and Germany. The later hasn't existed in some time and the former is only true for another 10-15 years or so. If you look at people under the age of 40 its only true for another few years. Lt. Kommandant Muhammad bin Alsan will save us from the Russians surely.

His website is very obviously (to me) satire. If you have much of a memory, you would recall one Sen. Dianne Swinestein proclaiming from the rooftops that freedom of speech only applied to "accredited" journalists/news outlets.Shortly afterwards, Accredited Times sprang into existence. It's pretty obvious.If the article linked below isn't obvious satire (though lacking the Onion's rampant silliness) to you, you need to have your sarc detector repaired.https://www.accredited-times.com/2017/11/07/satirical-writers-infiltrat…

They sure seem to have missed that scenarioFucking idiots. Nationalism is not a problem. People can be nationalistic (proud of their nation) and get along great with their neighbors.In their idiotic drive to destroy the actual nations of Europe, the idiots like Merkel and Macron and Junker and Tusk are planting the seeds of  future conflicts.

Whatever 'strategic studies' the German military has managed to perform lately,

the IDF has done 10x over - and - thanks to the reams of stolen American (and no doubt German!)technology they seem to always have at their disposal... are doubtless both better disposed to 'predict' the future...

and perhaps more salient... make the future happen.

The \breakup of Europe/is ONE of their goals - and it underlies the tactical alliance which tel aviv and moscow have been operating since end of winter 2016/ a stealth takeover/degradation of the NATO alliance is another.

But - uber alles - its' the transfer of the Germans into the Eurasian camp - under a special status... not exactly 'satrapy' as they are now... not exactly as "partner"/// as they shall surely be persuaded to believe by their wooers.

With - and only with - that lineup in working order, could the Eurasian, Sraeli-led cartel ever hope to fully eliminate the resilient ability of the occident to come back from defeat.

And as careful observers have known for over one year now... it was the task given to the puppet POTUS which Sraels' domestic fifth column ensured the victory of - to break down the long ties between the 'western partners' in preparation for that coming divorce.

Today = one full year hard at it... one can indeed say... of the Drumpfs' success at his assigned task...

Heck of a job, Brownie~!

I don't think we need all that stuff... War isn't coming from abroad but from within. No use for subs or large surface vessels for that. More helicopters/drones etc. End NATO, build up militia's Swiss style and keep within the borders. Military is an extension of politics and current politics is the problem. France, Poland, Russia are not going to invade, especially not if a neutralist, mercantile political system is in place. No allegiance to anyone except Germany (copy-paste for other countries of course).

And that occupying force will be the basis of the German sponsored EU army.  It will be an army of mercenaries with no sympathy for, or connection to, the native Europeans.   It will be used to control and eventually destroy them.The EU elite seems to think that they can use the occupying force to consolidate an ESSR but I think they may find that they have a tiger by the tail.   Islam will not treat these useful idiots kindly once it is in the ascendant.
