Oh, God. Please Tell Me They Didn’t Arrive in a Big Wooden Horse…

Here’s my favorite New York Times headline of the week:

France: German Troops Welcomed

It was placed atop this AP blurb:

STRASBOURG, France (AP) — For the first time since World War II, German combat troops are being stationed in France, part of a conscious effort to show the two EU powers have forever buried former hatreds.

A German battalion in a French-German military brigade officially took up arms Friday at a symbolism-rich ceremony in eastern France attended by the two countries’ defense ministers.

The 6,000-strong French-German Brigade was created in 1989. But until this year German combat troops had never been stationed in France, though French ones had been posted at bases in Germany — a legacy of the allies’ postwar occupation.

Yes, well, the legacy. But that was then, this is now. Good luck with the ongoing rapprochement, nations!
