Default Clean sweep Germans - forced to use broomsticks in place of real rifles.

guess they spent too much on their fancy social programs.

yes, the great German army, also uses plain cars to simulate troop carriers.

sounds like your average, ordinary group of 6 guys from the middle of the US could defeat the German Army in about 30 minutes. guns? hell yeah we have guns! and ammo too!! no, we're not going to share, get your own.

If Germany continues to let the Muslims invade and overtake, this might be for the best. I'd hate to see Muslims armed with missile launching submarines and an air force.

There are plenty of good reasons to not want to see the Germans too well armed. They should also be prohibited from making helmets that look way cooler than everyone else's. Every time they do that it's trouble.

Germany spends about 37 Billion Euros on defense in 2017

They spend 37 billion on Refugees in 2017

Let that sink in.

Yet they will not spend the 2% for defense they've been promising for decades.

Take our troops out of Germany and send them to Poland. They spend the 2% on defense.

helmets with spikes on top is cool.

you run out of ammo (or don't have a rifle in the first place), and you lose your bayonet to a Frenchman in a card game, and your pistol jams, what's left? lower your head and charge at his chest! brilliant!

Interesting theory, but it's wrong.

The German's, being the skillful craftsman and inventors that they are, invented a time machine in the late 19th Century. When they traveled to the future, they happened to watch several episodes of Our Gang with AlfAlfa. They ended up bringing back some film reels from the future, and the AlfAlfa character was so endearing to the German High Command, they decided to pay tribute with their new helmets.
