Should they have been black? I don't know. She was shoot the balls off a mouse at 500 yards. Is that relevant? I don't know.

The degree to which this manifested itself depended on the area of the BRD concerned, with the eastern area along the Iron Curtain more so than the western part of West Germany.
For those who were opposed to American, British and French troops being stationed in Germany, it should be remembered that they were there at the request of the Adenauer government and of NATO. It is universally accepted today that if the Western troops had not been there and West Germany had been absorbed into East Germany with the USSR in control, the German people would not have the prosperity they enjoy today.
