“You wanted to have peaceful Germans. Now you have them. Don’t complain.”

Regarding increasing German troops in Afghanistan via the Weekly Standard:

Stinner acknowledged that the Germans “need to do their fair share” but that the cultural hurdles to greater German military involvement were great. “Germans are the most risk-averse people in the world,” he says. And they are not so easily inclined to go to war, following 60 years of social reengineering: “You wanted to have peaceful Germans. Now you have them. Don’t complain.”

He kinda has a point.
