They are getting hysterical because some of their troops found and took goofy pictures with some skulls.
It is hard to believe but do not be surprised whatever news comes out from the Current German Political Establishment. Is it any wonder that right wing groups are getting restless. Read it and weep.

Germany Reconsiders Sending Troops on Foreign Missions
Defense Minister Jung said Germany should limit its foreign missions
Senior politicians on Sunday said Germany should rethink its role in foreign peacekeeping missions as the scandal over soldiers playing with skulls in Afghanistan battered the army's image.
Defense Minister Franz Josef Jung warned that Germany may have stretched the military to its limits by sending troops on 11 foreign missions, ranging from Africa to the Middle East to Afghanistan.
"Even if we have the support of parliament, many deputies feel that we have reached the limit. We should practice restraint," Jung told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper. "Until now we have failed to accompany the growing number of foreign military missions with a proper debate about their meaning and purpose," he added.
Jung's remarks contrasted sharply with a white paper on defense he submitted to cabinet on Wednesday which paves the way for Germany to increase the number of peacekeepers abroad from about 10,000 to up to 14,000.
