They can afford universal health care and a total welfare state because they don't have to fund a viable military. The mutual-defense treaties with the US promise them protection in the event of a war. Without it, they would all have to fund thier own armies with missions other than peace keeping.

Germany, France, nor Canada have to worry about being attacked by China, not because the US is around, but because there's no reason for China to attack. If you think Europe is at a serious risk of attack from a powerful aggressor nation, you're a huge fucking retard.
Germany and France both have more active troops per thousand Citizens than China and India combined.

If your stats are true, I don't feel the urge to check, it means nothing. Just using the population of China versus the world shows how stupid your argument is.

This is bad math, MJS, and you know it.
China is a nation of a billion people. That's Billiion, with a b, as in "boy that's a big fucking army"
They don't need as many soldiers per thousand. That have many, many more thousands to take up the balance, enough that they have the largest standing army in the world by about 1.2 million troops. They also have the second or third largest military budget in the world.
Please use statistics for good and not evil in the future.

Both China and India, the two most populous nations in the world, are nuclear powers and have massive armies, bigger then the French or the Germans. India is actively engaged in a long war with Pakistan and has a very advanced military. China itself is undergoing a massive force modernization which will include force projection capabilities by the year 2015 (this means they can invade other countries, in case that wan't clear to you.) WIth the way International relations are being conducted between the NATO powers, allied nations may soon need to build thier own military strength, which will mean a retraction of welfare guaruntees.
The French military has a hard time keeping the peace within it's own borders. The recent muslim riots in urban areas such as Paris and Nice underscored a lack of sufficent military strength - the riots lasted for weeks. The French have always been complicit in military affairs, believing themselves to hold a postion of world power they only had during the Napoleonic wars. This complicity has enabled several German invasions in the last 200 years, which have only been repelled by the intervention of the US and the UK. It is a wonder that the 5th French Republic exists as a soverign entity and not some part of a German dominated political system.
Way to jump into a conversation with insufficent knowledge, say something retarded, and declare yourself the winner, asshat.

The army != the police. Using them as such can only result in disaster.

This law would be awesome if not for the fact that some morons are going to abuse this.
Right now it's "You weren't defending yourself! You were ATTACKING!"
Then it'll be "I wasn't attacking! I was defending myself!"
Why the **** would China attack Germany or France? What do they have of value?
