#1 NATO is a mutual defense organization.

Why on Earth are we still allied with these ungrateful freeloaders?

#2 ...I'm starting to think that when you look at this and the Baden-Wurttemburg disaster, the Germans are acting like the kid who botches up mowing the lawn so badly that Dad does it anyways.

#6 Given how much Germany is spending in financial support as well as policing the 1.x million colonists Chancellor Merkel invited, it's no wonder they haven't the funds for a properly kitted out military as well. I seem to recall they already had to increase taxes to cover their increased domestc expenditures.
