The Germans can’t field one tank brigade! For example: “... half of the Bundeswehrs tank fleet is unfit for service. Only 95 out of 244 Leopard 2 main battle tanks were said to be combat-ready, while the remaining tanks were either disarmed or lacked critical spare parts. ..”
If that’s the level of effort they want to make, why should we be there?
That’s a feint. Of course, in the short term it’s meant to try to induce us to overextend our own military means.
