Huge portions of the Dutch military are being merged with the German Army, in a process that many want to see rolled out across the whole Continent. Two of the Netherland’s three combat brigades have officially begun the process of joining the Bundeswehr.
The 11th Airmobile Brigade came under German command in 2014. Then on March 17, the 43rd Mechanized Brigade officially became part of the German 1st Armored Division. The Dutch Army now has only the 13th Mechanized Brigade, plus special forces, support and headquarters staff under its own command.
This is a revolutionary change, not just for the Netherlands, but for Europe, and, in time, the world. It is paving the way for a newly capable German-led military force. …
The German Sea Battalion is under Dutch command, so this cooperation goes both ways to a certain extent—though it is clear Germany is the senior partner. Even so, the German troops commanded by the Netherlands will be unable to deploy without the approval of the German parliament. Germany’s constitutional court has ruled that the German military can only be deployed with the permission of the Bundestag. This applies to German units stationed in other forces.
“In all previous collaborations was agreed that troops operations continue to be subject to checks by the national institutions and procedures,” wrote Sachsische Zeitung.“The Sea Battalion of the German Navy could thus be involved, for example, only after approval of the Bundestag on a foreign deployment of the Dutch Navy” (Trumpettranslation throughout).
Germany sees this unprecedented cooperation as only the start. It has begun preparations for similar arrangements with Poland. The Czech Republic has asked Germany several times for a similar arrangement to what the Dutch now have—it also wants one of its armored brigades absorbed into the German Army. …
The rise of a Europe capable of fielding a powerful military force, independent from the United States, would be one of the biggest geopolitical events of the 21st century so far, revolutionizing the balance of power around the world. https://www.thetrumpet.com/article/137184.108.40.206/germany-is-taking-over-the-dutch-army
As far as that last point goes, Germany has already stated that it wants a military that is independent of the USA (see my posts Germany military looking to be ‘Independent of the USA’ andGermans wants an independent European arms industry).
But that is not the only thing that Germany wants.
A few hours ago, a reader sent me a link to the following from German-Foreign-Policy.com:
13 April 2016
Following her talks yesterday with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that Germany will strengthen its partnership with Mexico. It will train members of the police and armed forces and enhance economic cooperation with that country. Mexico, traditionally, has been one of the German companies’ two most important trading partners in Latin America. …
Berlin’s decision to expand its cooperation with Mexico is also a result of the growing polarization on the shores of the Pacific. On the one hand, cooperation should be intensified at the economic level. During his visit to Berlin, which ended yesterday, Mexico’s President, Enrique Peña Nieto, met with representatives of interested German companies. Chancellor Angela Merkel subsequently declared that “our companies’ improvement proposals” were “very openly accepted.” In return, parallel to the passage of the TTIP agreement, Berlin will make efforts to accommodate the free trade agreement between the EU and Mexico. Otherwise, Mexico can expect a negative impact, due to its close ties to the USA. Secondly, this expansion of cooperation involves the sector of repression. Germany wants to support Mexico in reforming and training its police. Thirdly, the Bundeswehr is to train and provide advanced training for Mexico’s armed forces. The official reason is to prepare Mexico for its first UN Blue Helmet mission, announced for the first time in 2014. …
In the first half of 2016, Foreign Minister Steinmeier will visit Argentina and Mexico. Germany’s potential political benefit – alongside the economics – can be gleaned from a sort of declaration of devotion uttered yesterday in Berlin by Mexico’s President Peña Nieto. “We are expressly grateful for the leading role assumed by Chancellor Merkel. We accept this role. Germany under Chancellor Angela Merkel is an important political player in Europe and in the world.”http://www.german-foreign-policy.com/en/fulltext/58930
Why report about Mexico and Germany?
Notice something I posted here on March 3, 2008 and February 3, 2009:
The EU will decide that Mexico and the rest of Latin America are in more agreement with it and thus make some type of serious trading agreement with most (or all) of Latin America. The Vatican will also have influence here as Latin America is highly Roman Catholic.
The Europeans and Americans, however, will continue to have military agreements, though many will be tense about them.
Eventually, the Europeans (possibly under the cover of pretending that they are involved in a “NATO-like” exercise in North America) will eventually launch a surprise attack against the United States in fulfillment of both biblical and Catholic prophecies. The Mexicans will most likely be allied with the Europeans for this to happen. (Thiel B. A Combined EU & North American Trade Block Coming?)
It has been my personal belief for over two decades that when the Europeans ultimately invade the USA, they will do it by surprise and likely under the pretext of conducting joint military exercises with the USA on USA soil.
And while that scenario might not come to pass, the recent news suggests that this is a certainly plausible speculation.
The USA is on shaky grounds and ultimately is likely to rely on some (like the Euroopeans) that will turn upon it. And I believe that the USA will be taken off guard by this invasion (which I also suspect will be supported by ground troops likely based in Mexico).
The stage for the destruction of the USA is being set more and more lately. (Thiel B. France, NATO, and the Invasion of the USA)
For decades I have believed that Mexico would likely support the European takeover of the USA for many reasons. The announcement that Germany will be training Mexican military troops is consistent with that.
But training Mexican troops is not all some in Germany want. Notice also the following:
April 13, 2016
A key member of a partner in Germany’s ruling coalition has called for an “Islam law” to prevent foreign financing of mosques as he says “political Islam” undermines integration in the country.
Andreas Scheuer, the Christian Social Union’s general secretary, has said in an interview with Die Welt newspaper that “political Islam” undermines efforts to integrate people in Germany.
He spoke to the newspaper at a time of polarizing views on immigration in Europe and the arrival of mainly Muslim refugees.
Scheuer said financing of mosques or Islamic kindergartens from foreign countries, such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia, must be stopped, the UK’s Independent newspaper reported.
He also said “all imams must be trained in Germany and share our fundamental values.”
The CSU is any ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union which share power with the Social Democratic Party in a grand coalition.
“It can’t be the case that other, sometimes extreme, moral concepts, are imported from abroad,” Scheuer was quoted as saying.
“German must become the language of the mosques,” he noted, arguing: “Europe must cultivate its own Islam.” http://www.ecumenicalnews.com/article/german-politician-wants-an-islam-law-to-prevent-foreign-financing-of-mosques/42510.htm
Notice that Andreas Scheuer is calling for a German version of Islam. The ecumenical and interfaith movement is moving forward. The time will come when there will be a more German-focused version of Catholicism. The Bible tells of a leader, called the King of the North, that will feign aspects of a faith, but change it (cf. Daniel 11:37-38).
I have long said, this leader will claim to be Roman Catholic, but will work to change that faith–and that is even consistent with Roman Catholic prophecies. I will also add that the Bible shows that the supporters of the European Beast King of the North power will betray the Church of Rome (cf. Revelation 17:16-18).
Getting back to military matters, it perhaps should be mentioned that the current German military is called the Bundeswehr. It is reported that:
The Bundeswehr is among the world’s most technologically advanced and best-supplied militaries (Bundeswehr. Wikipedia, viewed 04/28/14)
I have long written that technology will be a major key to the military success of the final European King of the North Beast power. The biblical ramifications of a Europe that can defend itself apart from the USA are enormous.
The Bible tells of a time when a final Beast power will rise up in Europe. Because of real divisions between the USA and Europe, Europe, despite the fact that it does not seem like it wants to will attack and takeover the USA. The ‘he’ in Daniel 11:39 is identified as the King of the North in Daniel 11:40:
5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. 6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few. 8 For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings? 9 Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus? 10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria; 11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols? *Isaiah 10:5-11, KJV)
39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (Daniel 11:39)
There are historical and prophetic reasons to tie in Assyria with those in Germany and central Europe today (see Germany’s Assyrian Roots Throughout History and Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy).
The Bible talks about a beast of the sea that had a deadly wound to one of its heads that was healed:
3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. (Revelation 13:3)
While the above likely has multiple interpretations, such as with the old ‘Holy Roman Empire,’ could this not also refer to a leader whose political career and/or or an empire that was believed to have been destroyed, who later returns?
Notice the verse that comes after Revelation 13:3:
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him? (Revelation 13:4)
Notice that this beast has military ability. Consider that Germany is taking the lead of the military in Europe and is now also going to train Mexican troops.
While many do not think that much will happen with Europe’s military, the terrorist incidents along with events in Ukraine, Russian military matters, and the relative decline of the US military are all motivating various ones in Europe in general and Germany in particular to want to step up the military presence in Europe and elsewhere.
Germany still wants to lead all of Europe–the Bible supports that this will happen. The fact that the Germans are getting more and more open about wanting to strengthen a European military shows that the goal of such a military is intended.
