For the record, when you see articles like this claiming the EU Army is Europe’s answer to Trump, don’t be fooled. Even though it’s well documented here on Global Geopolitics, and has been so for over five years, the plans for such a structure have been laid out decades ago. Donald Trump is just the scapegoat and everyone’s favorite lightning rod needed to follow through with the plans. Make no mistake about it, the European Army is coming, courtesy of Germany’s Fourth Reich hiding behind the yet-to-come United States of Europe after the European Union goes through a shakeup and necessary changes.
A SENIOR German defence official has insisted the European Union will inevitably launch its own army.
Hans-Peter Bartels, Germany’s national defence commissioner welcomed the single force because the bloc is “currently disorganised”.
Speaking on the same day Brexit talks formally began, Mr Bartels said steps in the “right direction” are important, which signalled [sic] Germany’s potential plans to press ahead with defence integration.
“We do not want to go down the solitary national path anymore. Not in Germany, not in the Netherlands, not in the Czech Republic and not in Italy.”
He added: “In the end, there will be a European army.”
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission has continuously expressed his support for the army.
Taking a swipe at President Donald Trump, Mr Juncker said the United States is “no longer interested in guaranteeing Europe’s security in our place”.
He added during a conference in Prague: “Our defence to NATO can no longer be used as a convenient alibi to argue against greater European efforts.”
“We have no other choice than to defend our own interests in the Middle East, in climate change, in our trade agreements.”
