German soldiers cannot shoot, cannot drive, Afghan report concludes

 GERMANY'S military is a danger to itself and its Afghanistan mission because it lacks combat and medical skills, German newspaper Bild reported yesterday citing a classified official document.

"The soldiers' proficiency in small arms and their command of weaponry does not correspond to the requirements of the territory," officers in the leaked Bundeswehr internal report complained.

The document added that soldiers did not have adequate driving instruction to prepare them for Afghanistan's uneven terrain. Furthermore, their lack of driving experience in armored vehicles put their lives at risk of serious road accidents.

The document also criticized the abilities of German medics, who, it was claimed, were inadequately prepared to treat gunshot and explosives wounds.
