Re: They Said that an EU Army Wouldn't Happen

The German Army is only a social club, willing to fight to the last American soldier.
The Dutch military in Kosovo didnít exactly show much if any fighting spirit, which leaves the Belgians and Italians as the backbone of the EU Army?

Pretty much but don't forget the fearless French, and the forward fighting Italians.... most of whom the UK have had a right old laugh and a giggle at since the 1st world war.

Progress has been made though because the german defense minister responible for the broom handles has a new job

President of the EU Council ...

Don't laugh.... oh my aching sides .....

I hope they still have to use broomsticks and shout 'pang!'. Remember last time when they had real weapons? Your army fled via dunkirk to the island of britain. Waiting shivering for germany to invade, dad's army at the ready.
Luckily the polish pilotis flew to your rescue, in their wake the russians who dared to take on the germans. The british waited for the americans to join them before entering the fighting.
So better hope for the germans to remain on your side.

We won't be there to bail you out next time either.

You might want to dye your hair blonde and get some blue contact lenses

On military exercises in Germany Dutch Troops wore hair nets in order to get their hair under their battle bowlers. Exercises had to stop on a Friday so that the Dutch Army could go Home for the weekend I kid you not.
