Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

The Future of German armed forces
In Germany we have a silly sytstem for our armed forces. On the one hand young men have to go if choosen, and if they don't want to, they have to do some charitiy work - mostly in hospitals and so - instead of.
Young women can go because they fought for equal rights, but noone took them by their words and made it compulsary for them, too, so they can go if they want and don't have to do charity jobs.
This is silly... sorry, it's not fair to the men, neither to the women. But well, who am I to complain, I would not go to he military, even if I were 15 years younger than I am now.
Doug Merrill from A Fistful of Euros has taken the work and written down a really interesting essay about how the above stated system relates to the safety of European borders.
