    Why are we still in Germany? The people don't want us there and they never did. Should we maintain a force their because someone's grandparents did something wrong? It makes no sense to me and according to polling data the Germans don't want us. We should do what Russia did long ago and send the troops home

    yeah..... what could be the reason for not wanting Germany to expand its military might? ..... let me think


    frankly Id prefer them to expand, I trust them far more than most other countries right about now!

    I'm OK with that. Germany has Russia on their side anyway. How many millions would we save if we left Germany, I wonder.

    it has nothing to do with world war 2 or thinking the germans will act a fool again and everything in the world todo with projecting power and global influence

    Quite honestly, living in Germany, I can't say what proportion of Germans are unhappy about Murrcan presence.

    Sure, a majority, or possibly, but a small one.

    Most Germans I know are thankful of Murrcans, as they will say themselves that they would have been steamrolled and raped by the USSR otherwise.

    Also, Germans nowadays are really anti-military, and are happy to have public funds attributed to other things.

    So no, on this one, this is not a very clear-cut case.

    it would decimate the economies of most of the smaller towns (i.e. Baumholder, Vilseck, etc...) near the bases

    and huge LOL at worrying about German military superiority, their equipment can't even get up basic hills and shit. We laughed at the Bundeswehr literally every day on our base (their equipment and training, not the guys themselves, solid people)
    edit: not that it matters, but they've already shut down MAD bases, and deflagged the two largest Infantry units (170th IBCT and 173rd IBCT from baumholder and Grafenwoehr) already....and moved USAREUR from Heidelberg to Wiesbaden

    Donald Trump has been threatening to pull US troops out of Germany , claiming they are not paying their fair share.

    A new Poll found that 42% of Germans want US troops to leave. 37% want them to remain and 21% are undecided.

    Support for the pull-out has the support of a majority of voters from both the left-wing Die Linke party (67%) and the Nationalist rightwing AFD party (55%)

    The US should pull-out. What reason is there to keep them there, and don't bother saying 'but but Russia' , cause it is absurd to think Russia is going to do anything.

    Russia already has Germany in their pocket. Weird how everyone else in the world calls US out on Russia but not Germany.

    they can buy new shit, also with their engineering expertise do you really think they couldnt make better equipment? Anyone who underestimates the Germans needs to re-examine history lol

    Russia doesn't, that's just Trump's over the top comment , that he said as a means to defend himself by going on the attack against Germany. Germany can get NG from others, though it is cheaper and easier from Russia.

    Because it’s where our main trauma hospitals are for wounded service members in the Middle East. It’s far quicker to fly guys on an aeromedical evac flight to LRMC than to Virginia or Houston. We would have to move all those facilities to a different NATO country.

    but they haven't.....and they don't meet the normal threshold for NATO and haven't for years

    they would literally lose to say Turkey or Russia in like a day flat, tops. I actually trained and lived w/ them for literally 4 years, they couldn't stop jack and shit

    The main reason A) they're retarded for wanting us out the literal only deterrent, and B) they should be trying harder to keep the UK at a favorable position in Brexit, being they are BY FAR the dominant military force in Europe and now won't be in the EU....

    They're more of an ally to Germany than they are to the US.
