German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius has warned that the people of Germany need to be prepared for the possibility of war in Europe.

He emphasized the need for the entire population to be ready for war, in addition to modernizing the military.

“We have to get used to the idea that there could be a threat of war in Europe. And that means: We have to become ready for war. We have to be defensive. And prepare the Bundeswehr and society for it,” Pistorius said.

“Everything that has been messed up in 30 years, sorry to say that, and has been run down cannot be recovered in 19 months,” he admitted.

Pistorius rejected claims that the military overhaul was progressing too slowly, stating that it takes time to produce and acquire weapons and military assets.

Germany has faced criticism for its failure to meet NATO defense spending requirements and its recruitment challenges.

In a letter presented to Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson and Democratic Senate President Pro Tempore Patty Murray, President Joe Biden has sought to satisfy the conditions of the War Powers Act, which requires the President to seek the consultation of members of Congress regarding military action.

The letter comes as Biden responds to Iranian terrorist groups’ attacks on American military personnel in the Middle East.

In it, Biden claims that the Iranian-back Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are guilty for the attacks, and notes the strikes he commanded against IRGC facilities as a response.

“I directed the strikes in order to protect and defend our personnel, to degrade and disrupt the ongoing series of attacks against the United States and our partners, and to deter Iran and Iran-backed militia groups from conducting or supporting further attacks on United States personnel and facilities,” the letter reads.

Biden has received backlash since his acknowledgement of the attacks, as the President has consistently coddled Tehran since taking office, now reacting to the nation’s history of terrorism only as it impacts American troops directly.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invoked the historical fight between the Israelites and the tribe of Amalek to emphasize his nation’s determination to stand against Hamas terrorists.

Netanyahu referenced the biblical account of Amalek attacking the Israelites after their liberation from Egypt.

“You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible. We do remember and we are fighting,” Netanyahu said.

“Our brave troops and combatants who are now in Gaza or around Gaza and in all other regions in Israel are joining this chain of Jewish heroes, a chain that has started 3,000 years ago from Joshua ben Nun until the heroes of 1948, the Six-Day War, the ’73 October War and all other wars in this country,” he said.
