    A Question on Mixed-language Threads?

    Hi all,

    Just a question: if I have a video to share which is in German, but my discussion is in English, how do I navigate this?

    For example, I have this clip from an ex-army dude, which I find quite shocking and worthy of sharing.
    He was happy in the German army, but then they went on a French training camp, which served no purpose but to humiliate and break men.

    What this man says is shocking.
    And nobody wanted to help with the medical bills afterwards.

    Armies are tough, but they should also be professional, and not only exist to torture and kill their own soldiers.

    Many young men might consider the "adventurous military", but this man raises some serious concerns.
    He suggests that you mean nothing to them.

    Anyway, not sure where to place this.

    Verrat von oben: Ein Bundeswehrsoldat packt aus.

    I can't help but feel that what was done to this man was due to anti-German sentiment from the French commanders. But that's open to interpretation.

    The state certainly never helped afterwards - first he was broken, and then they discarded him like rubbish.

    But then again, little surprises me about the inhumanity of the state - just other groups are organized to fight it, whereas white German people are mostly not.

    Time to catch a wake-up?
