Virtually everything that could go wrong—from accidents a lack of cash—has set Berlin’s U-boat fleet adrift.

Germany, a major pioneer of submarine warfare, finds itself with its entire submarine fleet out of action. All six of the country’s Type 212A attack submarines are out of commission, and the reasons stretch from an underfunded defense establishment to a shortage of sailors. The total absence of any usable u-boats, a key capability as Russia continues to intimidate Germany’s NATO allies, calls into question Berlin’s commitment to defense.

That's what happens when we are the world's policemen. Everyone else is content to sit back and let us pay to protect them.

His is why our military needs to be multiplied by 0.5.

I agree. Bring our people home and tell Europe they're responsible for their own defense.

Let's do it. Now is a great time. Republicans are not going to take kindly to a liberal doing this. Maybe they would be more amenable to listening to Trump.
