I wasn't talking about the tank games or whatever it was in that instance yes it is wrong. I was talking about local german residence complaing about 10-15 trees being cut down to extend a road on the base. In that same week a few minutes from the town local german residence burnt down (the whole town took part in this) a house they suspected to be housed by druggies (which it wasn't because they picked the wrong house and burnt a house of someone who is on vacation) anyways they burnt down quite a bit of trees from that on top of that, they cut down 30 trees in a forest for what reason? to extend a parking lot. That is what I am talking about. And while I am at it since you seem to be getting so angry about stuff I might as well through this in since you seem to care for nature as you say. I have seen a whole flock of ducks eradicated by you germans who don't seem to know that when a 30k speed limit is put up that it means 30k not 100. It may not seem like much but the local pond is not the same without its 20 ducks floating around on the surface. I have seen them hit on purpose does your police care? no does it make the papers? no. Before you start spouting on how much destruction americans are causing why don't you stop and look on how much your own people are doing. We are visitors in your country we (should) ask before doing that stuff? if we are leaders aren't already. I love germany I have been here for so long already. I was there when the wall fell(yes at the wall), I celebrated as the two germanies united. Since that time germany has fallen I have seen it, you may not agree but it has. but i'm done with this post... Once again sorry if I offend but that is my feelings (and I could be wrong).

Cutting down some trees ? You want to turn a green, sprouting wood into a barren wasteland to practice tank maneuvering. Please note that just because it isn't marketed, you can't buy stickers and lolipops, something might still be a national park. You wanted to use squaremiles of German protected soil to play wargames and when you are done, you leave it that way for us to rebuild. I could understand that in the time when your positions here were in danger of immediate attack by the Warsaw Pact. What are you afraid of now ? Denmark ? The evil Swiss ? If you need to eradicate a healthy piece of nature, could you be so kind and do that in your own country ? I heard Redwood has some nice trees. I guess we send some Panzers over there, we need practice.
