Wilkommen auf der Fete, Kamerad

The German Armed Forces, the Bundeswehr, have just done what they have not done since May, 1945, they've gone on the offensive, in Afghanistan.

They used to have so many restrictions on their ability to fight, that they were near literally reduced to shouting at their enemies and that was it, unless they were fired on. It doesn't take a huge amount of empathy to know what having to give the other side the first shot every time has on the martial spirit.

This is good news.
