German Newspaper Reveals Disastrous State of Bundeswehr 

GERMANY - The German army has more problems than previously reported, as the country's defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen, had allegedly tried to hide the malfunctions of the military equipment, according to reports.  The Bundeswehr is in a disastrous condition, the German newspaper Bild wrote, referring to a report from the Federal Court of Accounts. 

According to the media outlet, the country's Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has been concealing the scope of malfunctions of the military equipment for the sake of good statistics.  The newspaper stressed that the minister's statements about the "combat readiness" of ships and planes often did not correspond to reality.

According to the newspaper, all German submarines were unfit for military operations last year. Less than half of frigates and tanks and only one in three combat helicopters were ready for deployment; warships lack controllable missiles and patrol boats are short of crew members, the article said. Over recent months, reports have repeatedly come up that the German army has been suffering from equipment and staff shortages.

For instance, on March 31, 2018, news emerged of a confidential report from the German Defense Ministry warning of the poor and "outdated" state of the air force's fleet of Tornado combat jets. The aircraft were said to be incapable of joining further NATO missions as they do not possess an encrypted communications system and the intelligence they gather remains vulnerable to interception.

Previously, another German magazine had reported that over half of the German Bundeswehr's Leopard 2 tanks weren't ready for operation. It was said that the Bundeswehr has 244 tanks of this type in service, but only 95 of them are in full combat readiness.

This is hard to believe! The Germans have a reputation for producing quality products. Germany is a country where “everything works”.

The question is, what is behind this and several other articles which have appeared over the last few years claiming that the German armed forces are “not fit for purpose"?

The German population has been basically pacifist since the Second World War. Is all this talk about not being able to fulfil their NATO obligations a ruse to convince the German people that Germany needs to upgrade her military to fulfil those NATO "commitments"?

It looks like Germany is re-arming by stealth! At the end of the age, the German-led European army seems to be invincible:

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, 'Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?'" (Revelation 13:4)

Watch as Germany re-arms to fulfil her end time role!

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
