Cold War Relic Reminder

It’s one of those items that requires a re-read. Sure enough, the Pentagon has announced that it is proposing a plan to withdraw its two Army divisions — about 40,000 troops — from Germany. They will be sent where they’re needed more — as in the Middle East.

That part makes sense, but it’s a reminder that we STILL have troops in Germany. Post Cold War Germany. Unified Germany. Undivided, Checkpointless Charlie, wall-less Berlin, Germany.

What’s next from this time warp? An end to the Cuban embargo?
