EU states have cleared the way for a new HQ to take charge of three military missions in a “couple of days”, as well as broader plans for joint defence.
The HQ will, in the words of 28 defence ministers adopted on Thursday (18 May), “assume responsibilities at the strategic level for the operational planning and conduct of the EU’s non-executive military missions” including “the three EU Training Missions deployed in Central African Republic, Mali and Somalia”.

THE EU will tonight debate for the creation of a continent wide super army that will be up and running next year – and blame BREXIT for its creation.
Brussels politicians will convene in the French city of Strasbourg to thrash out the plans that will cost taxpayers’ £420m-a-year.
They will vote on the issue to establish an “EU-wide system for the coordination of rapid movement of defence forces personnel” across Europe. Continue reading
A jumbo-sized meeting of 56 EU foreign and defence ministers endorsed a plan to create a mini military HQ and to have joint rapid-reaction forces on Monday (14 November).
The EU foreign service will create the HQ, called “a permanent operational planning and conduct capability”, which will command “non-executive military missions”, such as training the Libyan or Iraqi military, but not combat.
They also agreed that the EU needed its own joint forces that could be sent, if needed, to “situations of high security risk in the regions surrounding the EU”, for instance, in Africa, but said those types of operations would be commanded out of national HQs.
Now that it’s evident the United States under Barack Obama’s leadership lacks the will to put down Iran, and is even helping Iran go nuclear, someone is going to have to fill in the void.
From 2013 with relevancy today:
How Germany is building a European army
“Berlin will not be able to overwhelm Iran in the near future unless it is working on a special strategy right now,” wrote Gerald Flurry in last month’s Trumpet.
That is a dramatic statement from one of the most dramatic articles we have published. For over two decades the Trumpet has been warning that the next world war would begin with German-led Europe attacking Iran. Last month Mr. Flurry exposed how Germany is planning for that very confrontation right now.
Some of this German strategy is well known. For example, the German press often writes about “the Merkel Doctrine”—Chancellor Angela Merkel’s attempt to create an anti-Iran alliance by selling weapons to Iran’s enemies. Mr. Flurry also explained that Germany is already surrounding Iran, establishing deployments and making deals across the Middle East.
But there’s more. European military planners are getting the Continent ready for a clash with Iran. Continue reading
While still in the planning and development phase, the United States of Europe is still well on its way to setting foot on the world stage. When you follow the money and trace the source of decisions that shape the social-political and economic landscape of Europe, all roads lead to Berlin and its Fourth Reich, via entities such as the European Commission, European Central Bank and the IMF — the “Troika”.
Enhancing its role as a “security provider” in “Southern neighborhood” implies the instability in the Middle East, including Israel.

BRUSSELS — Options for deploying European Union battlegroups —the EU’s rapid-response forces — will be discussed during a series of meetings Sept. 25-26.
The battlegroup discussion comes ahead of a meeting of EU defense ministers in November and a summit of EU heads of state and government on defense matters in December.
EU battlegroups are military units that support the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). Member states contribute personnel and resources to the units, which comprise about 1,500 troops, on a rotating six-month basis. EU battlegroups have been on standby since 2007, but they have yet to be used. Currently, a British-led battlegroup is on standby with contributions from the Netherlands, Sweden, Latvia and Lithuania. Continue reading
