You will hail what dusa? A rising Germany under Merkel? What are they going to do? Flash their petticoats at Putin? The Brits are too few but will fight the good fight! The French? Same thing! It will be history déja vu! You sit there at your keyboard and mouth off! The United States, what a lovely target all the time! You don’t have the balls to walk through the gates but what an expert on military matters!I hail this (if become reality). Germany building up its army from moment there restrictions dating from after WW2 are ended.
Whole Europe need to get "rehab" from military dependency from US. UK made it clear that they don't want to have nothing with EU which will inevitably become bit more independent from US, for rest ... we would see.
I think that Germany are pissed from US pressure. US ask from Germany to impose sanctions to Russia which would benefit only US and damage both Russia and Germany and for what? Because American politicians still think they are in late 90s in unipolar world where US is only empire in the world.
Things are changed in last 15 years. Russia regain some of its old power, China became very important player. Economically first, then with their modernization of army with greatest manpower in the world.
Now Germany doing interesting moves and I'm convinced that they would have bigger military power than France pretty soon.
As for France I think they are not sure where they want go in this moment. Doing easier thing (in this moment) and let US guiding hand steer their boat, or turn to Germany, rest of Europe and more independent policy and army of EU.
Same as my country, we want to be good with Russians , Americans, Chinese and EU in same time. Simply mission impossible . We did played that role successfully as Yugoslavia in one period in history. But times are drastically different and we have to choose side or we gonna be F-ed by everyone.
