Will Brexit impel Germany to rebuild its military?
Britain is one of the most powerful nations, if not the most, in the EU and a Brexit would be devastating for the EU in terms of operational capacity. It will leave a void that Germany probably would be all too happy to fill provided there is the political will.

Do you believe that a Brexit would impel Germany to rebuild its military to be once more the number one military power in Europe?

The poll options could be better. I vote for Germany remains a US vassal state and will continue to push all the policies that Washington hopes for.

Dear swarthy friend, apparently you have no idea of the bad joke the German armed forces are today.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

I doubt that it's in a state worse than the Versailles army. Germany did have an impressive army during the Cold War, but they disarmed. Russia and Brexit will encourage Germans to rearm.

Why would it?

I recall that Germany is already expanding it's military, though spending is still well below the NATO recommendation.

Que the Eurocrat: 'This Brexit vote if successful will be a disaster for European unity!'

Que Merkel: 'Where will the migrants destined for the U.K. go? Germany must take them in!'

The German armed forces are about the most unattractive employer in this country. Since the abolition of the draft even the non-white riffraff recruits with hardly an alternative on the job market left within the first 72 hrs of service.
