Emm, there wont always be one threat, and the intersts of many nations will be dominated by the corrupt socialists in Brussels. An EU army would be horrible. An Army is a position of nationalism and loyalty to ones nation, I would happily serve for my country. But I couldnt go and fight for some other nations in the EU....
,y armed forces should never be put under foreign General's. We swear an oath to defend Ireland, not "Europe" although we should fight side by side with our European allies when the time comes, but we dont fight for them we fight with them.
And What if European interest goes against Irish interest? Or the Spanish Interest?
And right now, the one military threat Europe faces is Russia.
Maybe Im going a tad extreme here, but I cannot continue to see the similarities of this to the 1930s..
IS The EU is the historical successor to the Third Reich? consider how the SS was created as an autonomous political tool beyond the regular Germany army and how its power grew incrementally. The planned EU Army and NATO bear a similar relationship to that of the SS and the Wehrmacht. Consider also the defining mission of the Pan European Waffen SS which was “to defend European civilization from Jewish Bolshevism” and the EU Army’s guiding principle of, as Juncker states it- “defending EU values from Russia.”
This is something that I respect all opinions.
