This from the Chancellor of a country who is failing to meet its NATO obligations and whose military is running out of ammunition.


Not quite, In 2024 the budget for national defence should be at 2 percent of the GDP, so all members of NATO who are below that have about 6 years to raise their defence budget.
Hence, there is no question of failing NATO obligations.


Only 4 countries are meeting their 2% Charter obligation over the past 7 years, Germany is at a paltry 1.3%

You may want to check the date on your sources. The source you just used - 13:39, 3 SEP 2014Updated16:48, 3 SEP 2014.

Currently 5 of 28(soon to be 29) members are meeting the requirement. The US, UK, Poland, Greece and Estonia.

I beg to differ, it is due to her policies that Germany is doing so well, within and outside the EU.
Give it one more year and our buyingpower will be increased with about 30 to 40 percent

Trump already walked away and is attacking Germany because of their trade surpluss, he is going to do a lot of damage but it won't be the Germans who suffer.

She mentioned the UK too. I guess Trump is to blame there too?

Seems like anyone who stands up to her is no longer reliable.


No.. because Brexit was stupid

I mean.. then there's the fact that Germany has the highest GDP in Europe... But that's non of my business


That statement, although true... is misleading. Their defense spending is almost zero..... because Germany is filled with American bases and since WWII they have not needed to spend on their own protection


Double edged sword there

If the Germans were allowed to have a larger military, then weapons/military/armed vehicles/bombs/etc would equally be a larger portion of their exports as well.

That's your opinion. Again, it's all about Trump .. even though Britain is mentioned.

Not even close but you keep spouting the hate.

The noly person Merkel has to blame is herself... Since she is incapable of accepting the fact her social policies failed she has nothing left to do but blame the US and UK. Imagine that, the left blaming someone else for their failed policies.
