20. Don't be too harsh on the not guaranteeing peace remark

Remember recent German history. Even German conservative parties are confirmed pacifists
for the most part, and any language even remotely implying German involvement in any
policing action outside of German borders makes most Germans--as well as all of their
immediate neighbors!!!--very allergic. Their reluctance to get involved in the Balkans in
the 1990s was a disaster, but having German troops in Yugoslavia just 50 years after
the Nazis' brutal occupation would have been a disaster, too. Most Germans are uneasy
with their military being in Afghanistan, too.
