With America in decline and NATO stretched thinly over Europe and barely meeting basic defense requirements, something has to fill the void. Enter Germany’s Fourth Reich, the powerhouse which currently runs Europe economically, and will soon militarily. Europe’s movement toward a common army has been sluggish, to say the least, but is now one of the top priorities and its actions have shown just that.
Jean-Claude Juncker has again called for the EU to build an army – by claiming that a “bunch of chickens” currently pose a bigger military threat.
The bureaucrat repeated his belief that the bloc needs a military arm at a forum in Brussels.
Juncker said: “A bunch of chickens looks like a combat formation compared to the foreign and security policy of the European Union.
“I always call for a European army as a long-term project.
“It is not something you can build from scratch tomorrow morning.”
The European Commission president last put the idea forward in March, when he argued that a joint army would stand up to Russia and other threats.
He said: “Such an army would also help us to form common foreign and security policies and allow Europe to take on responsibility in the world.”
