Aren’t these the people Kerry plans to somehow use to save Iraq?

If it weren't for the US, a batallion of Jihadists could probably take over Germany (and France, and Belgium).

Col. Hintelmann: "We were just obeying orders."

Yes, Kerry thinks we could stabilize Iraq if we had German and French help (with the blessing of Coffee Inane.) In fact, the French would immediately surrender to the Germans who would then hide in the barracks "like frightened rabbits."

This whole business has been a very well kept secret in the American press. For the past 60 years people have been killing and persecuting Christians all over the world, and they basically get a free pass from our press. Sudan is the most egregious, but it's common all over.

Generally speaking, frontline troops are usually brave enough, when it comes to facing the enemy. If they're running to avoid conflict in situations as ambiguous as in the Balkans, it's because they're afraid that they'll be in deep shit with their superiors and their own legal system, no matter what they might do.

And remember - the Germans haven't told the World Court to take a flying leap...

So the German Bundeswehr hid under their bunks during a race riot in a sector they were in charge of, eh?

Well, that's fitting: The entire Dutch government resigned almost *ten years* after their soldiers allowed a massacre of 6,000+ civilians by the Serbs in 1995.

As political humorist P.J. O'Rourke once wrote, the UN's 'Blau Helmets' dress up in nursery colors and are too chicken to shoot back.

American soldiers, on the other hand, are accused of beating the crap out of the hostile combatants we've captured -- and that's just our tiny female soldiers I'm talking about.

I'll let the readers decide for themselves which is more outrageous, but given the choice between the two I'd prefer to stick with the winners and suffer the repercussions.

WOW, perhaps we should be glad they refused to help in Iraq. How embarrassing.

I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing but the fight seems to have gone out of Germany since Hitler killed himself.

The ultimate in effeminate decadence is not the fear of being killed or injured, it is the fear of inflicting pain or being unfair. This fear permeates the ENTIRE west.

Hell, small wonder the German people want the US troops to stay there. It is to protect them, silly me, and I thought it was only about money.

Let's be kind here folks, the German government recently passed a bill that affords homosexual soldiers to sleep together. Now isn't that enlightening?

How come nobody has posted a Sgt Schultz?

Col Dieter Hintelmann, who heads the German Kfor contingent in Prizren, insisted that his men had simply obeyed Kfor rules of engagement. They prohibit troops from protecting buildings and allow the use of firearms only in self-defence. "We were acting exactly according to the rules," he said.

Kfor rules or german rules? I can not belive that the Kfor is prohibited from acting in such a situation - if so, then their presence in Kosovo is a waste of time and money.

[ A hard-hitting German police report sent to the Berlin government last week criticises the troops for cowardice and for their failure to quell the rioting in which 19 people died and about 900 others were injured. ]

Hitler must have really cleaned out the gene pool in Germany.
