Well, as a former conscript "grunt", I can assure you, there's always something better to do. It seems to me that certain kinds of senior NCO's and officers just love getting out in the field and do some "field-stuff", even if it's a total waste of time.

 

Maybe my point of view is not the best for evaluating this; I've never been on an actual mission; maybe it is useful to gain as much field experience at home as possible. But I often thought: Man, this is so completely useless...

I wouldn't count on it too much. With the *cough* cr?me de la cr?me *cough* of the Belgian military on foreign missions (Afghanistan, etc.) and the soon departing Lebanese warriors, I guess only a small bunch of our commando's will be left. Nothing those 900 supertrained Luxembourg special forces can't take care of. tongue.gif

For those wondering, I am back, for the time-being.

 

I have to say this, though: The more I see us train, and the more I see other countries train, the more I realize how it is that our Army is better. Call it boasting or pride or whatever, but you just gotta see it to believe it.

@MS:

No argument here. I saw the German and the American army train - there is definitely a difference. But maybe my experience was clouded by our prototypes...

 

@O:

Well, since the best of the best in Germany's army is also on missions (Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, etc etc), the crack commandos won't come to your rescue. But there's still enough artillery here and I learned something about artillery: Accuracy is not important... cool.gif

(Man, evil jokes...)

You've made an excellent point there my friend. Wiki? I really don't care much for that military Keynesianism, as it only works when war endures. We've got to have global peace at some point in our global history..
