Has It Just Been Veiled Outsourcing?

So, apparently, Germans are getting cranky about their un-assimilated aliens (much as other European countries and the US is).

Now, German chemical and other countries have long been accused of helping "rogue-states" with their WMD programs - be the chemical or nuclear programs. Hell, even the recent Stuxnet work was targeted at German-manufactured PLCs in Iranian nuclear reactors. Perhaps this has been a way for Germany to develop nuclear expertise and weaponry to provide a measure of plausible-deniability about their own nuclear ambitions. Perhaps the Reich will rise again (this time, ready to leave their opponents as radioactive parking-lots)?

Nah. While conventional war-making can be profitable, if you destroy your markets, you've no place left to sell. And, at the end of the day, Germans are big into commerce.
