I am from Canada and we are in exactly the same situation here. Government has denuded our defense capabilities to the point where we are able to send only three naval members and no ships to the Red Sea to combat Houthi attacks against shipping. Same situation for our Air Force and Army. Canadian people have no interest in our military readiness and neither do our politicians.

Well its a start?

Reminds me of the Allies before the second world war, they saw Hitler preparing for war, and were caught flat footed. This time they see the threat and are preparing for it.

Touché Germany,

My question is what about the remaining countries, are they also increasing their defense capabilities.

The burden can not fall only on Germany's shoulders.
