They can achieve that through more centralisation. No, the army's main function is to battle the Russians and Anglo-America. But the Russians in particular.

Trump is a guy that denounces globalism, gives encouragement to what the ruling eurocommies regard as "extremists" - so as Trump is NATO's most powerful man, NATO is now tainted.

And that's what's boosting the EU army idea. An independent force of liberal-globalist muscle untethered to Trump. That and resentment at Trump's insistence that they might have to pay NATO's bills properly for the first time.

Macron actually saying this stuff out is hilarious. He maybe a silly flim-flam man but he gets marks from me for honesty.:thumbsup:

I don't believe that Russian narrative for one minute!!!! That's a red herring if ever there was one!!!! We've never been at war with Russia, they were allies against the germans in WW11. And anyway NATO has protected europe since WW11, so we don't need a pathetic eurofarce!!!!

He also described Nationalism as "leprosy".
There you have it folks.
You can't be a Irish Nationalist and support the EU. It's an oxymoron.

Europeans have no bottle to battle anyone.

It's all symbolism, myth and war profiteering. The zenith of European military prowess is to act as the junior surgical assistant to the Americans, go on sentry duty after the Americans have made their mess or as the French still do, meddle with some of their ex-African territories.


Russians? They'd run a mile if the Russians came over the hill. Which is not something Putin will do, the UN charter and the Nuremberg outcomes are the bedrock of his international outlook. We really are very lucky to have a sober and disciplined man in Moscow.

Nationalism has ALWAYS been the cause of war and is therefor clearly identified as a disease- just like schizophrenia, cancer or leprosy.
No, that was Imperialism and people who wanted to Empire-build (both Capitalists and communists).
The Nationalist were the bulwark to that and were agents of freedom and peace.
