    Germany will be fine. They've always been the strongest and smartest country in Europe. And now they're finally assuming their rightful position in the international order.

    Switzerland has no strategical value. Beside their banking system, why would anyone invade a pile of rocks?

    Except there is no aggression to deter. And if there was, the addition of some F-35 fighters would not be enough to change the underlying strategic reality.

    Except you haven't demonstrated any "revanchist aggression" on the part of Russia. You just keep repeating the phrase over and over and over again.

    The cold war ended in the early 1990's.

    He hasn't withdrawn US forces from Syria.

    It doesn't sound like you would welcome that, since it would require a massive reduction in US involvement overseas.

    Utter nonsense. It is located at the center of the European mainland. It shares a border with France, Germany, and Italy.

    Demonstrating, once again, that you know nothing about Switzerland.

    The Swiss make good soldiers.

    The Swiss use to rent out their soldiers and when they appeared on the battlefield the other army would walk away and say..."You won the war." with nobody being killed.

    That's a myth.

    Swiss mercenaries got their asses kicked many times during the renaissance. Today, beside wearing a clown costume while guarding the pope, no one use them.

    And two times they recovered and rose to the preeminent position in Europe. Only this time the jealous British and French can't do anything to do stop it. This time, it will last for decades if not centuries. So you better get used to it.

    Independent Cort, possibility to choose the government and so on. As I said, You always have a chance to leave this liberal shithole, but for some reason people like you are staying in liberal shitholes. Strange...

    Even the Teutonic knights of the Teutonic Order were occasionally defeated on the battlefield.

    You weren't on top after ww1. The nazi played a shell game to fool you into believing you were on top. They were puting germany on the credit card and over spending on military equipment.

    Thing is, germany could never have won those two war. Building a better tank or airplanes doesn't mean **** if you don't have the fuel to use it. Germany, like france, doesn't have that many ressources internally.

    And yet Germany is now the most powerful and prosperous country in Europe. Seems like no matter what the British and the French do, Germany just ends up back on top.

    Before WW I Germany was leader of Europe. After WW I, Germany quickly again rose to be leader of Europe. After W W II Germany quickly was Nr. 1 again.

    When jealous British and French tired to stop rise of Germany? In some alternative history? I remind You, that Germany was under French and British occupation and there was an alternative for Marshal plan - strip Germany of all its industry. And germans had no chances to oposit this. But instead of this, allies created FRG and allow Germany to prosper.

    Remember...I'm sure you don't remember, before your time but the mutiny in the Kaisers navy towards the end of the First World War ?

    Commies organized the mutiny.

    Those same German sailors who were part of the mutiny would spend 15 years trying to overthrow the Reich.

    It was Lenin who sent his commie agitators to Germany to organize strikes and riots with the agenda of revolution and armed revolt and establishing the Republic of Socialist Germany.
