Hard to believe but true: even Human Rights Watch criticizes Germany for its cowardly Afghanistan policy.
As reported in DMK, Germany does not accept a fair share of NATO's military burden in Afghanistan. Now Kenneth Roth, HRW's executive director, harshly critizes Germany's refusal to send troops to the southern parts of the country, where fighting with the Taliban is very intense. In an interview with German news agency ddp, Roth accuses Germany of providing troops only for the safest regions in Afghanistan.
But...but...we lost WW2!! Germans are still in a state of shock!! Our troops are mentally incapable of brute force!! (Which, btw, puts Germany on the moral ground as compared to that cowboy run capitalist, fascist, christian-fundamentalist state, ifyouknowwhoimean...)
Any diplomatic jobs available instead? Or, maybe, some interesting business opportunities for German companies?
