      I wonder what kind of spectacular accidents we will get to see this year.

      I was in Germany from 95-98 and we seriously fricked up some public roads with our M60's and M113's. We also had a 5 ton truck blow up on the autobahn and pepper the local commuters with shrapnel. Good times!!

          Are you sure about that?

          Yes, it happened. I think it was something that started in the transmission or rear end, the entire transfer case, driveshaft, etc. exploded. There was a chunk of the rear end embedded in the windshield pillar of a guys Audi, that was the closest anyone came to getting hurt. It was on the way to to Graf summer of '97 driving from Giessen deopt.

      Time to be a cool dude.

      There's an episode of Cold War Conversations where the guest was a US Army tanker officer in Germany and he was telling how his unit when they did round out exercises to battle positions would be trailed by a major driven around in a jeep with a solider guarding him, and a bag full of cash to make damages right on the spot - one time a tank took out the corner of a German pub and out jumped the major handing out thousands on the spot kek.

        Doesn't seem that outrageous seeing how fricking massive armored vehicles are and how little actual driving gets done on those machines. Beginning truck drivers in cities frick up all the time, imagine it being a 60 ton tank and just plowing through most things instead of getting just moderately stuck.

        Kind of answered your own question, most are welfare queens who don't have sufficient driving time on said vehicles or all of a sudden find themselves behind the weel way londer than usual, they start getting complacent, somebody swerves and then accidents happen.

        It would honestly be for the best if NATO was dissolved and they went their seperate ways. Europe would need to unfrick its defense industry and the US could stop interfering everywhere to keep the stockholders happy.

          IMO, the USA should be out of NATO, Europe, UN, Rio Treaty, Japan, South Korea, etc. And when all of you lowlifes attack each other, then good luck with your own problems.
          The USA also needs to increase our tariffs on everyone, especially China, EU, UK, Japan, South Korea, etc to have balanced trade or cut off trade completely with some, like China. The USA also needs very very large punitive taxes on foreign investments, in order to correct the wrongs these countries have done to us in the past.

    That's great, but there'd be no need for readiness exercises if they would just send more ammunition and weapons to Ukraine. Why would you miss out on the ability to kill your potential enemy right on the battlefield with the people who have delivered consistent TZD since day 1? Are we planning for Ukraine to fail?

    Fricking morons. Imagine how much better the results would be if we just flooded Ukraine with long range PGMs and set up actual production lines, and if they weren't so faithless after a minor setback.

          Not the moron you're responding to, and you're largely correct, but this particular part is less to do with Europe being vital to America and more to do with America just having a frickload of money to spend, and Europe benefitting from America favoring their markets because they exist, and produce quality goods.
          Net imports/exports is only ever a piece of the broader tale of economic dependency between blocks.
